Y Gorlan is a beautifully renovated, ground-floor apartment in the heart of picturesque St Davids.  Perfect for two or a small family you'll love the stylish, homely interior with original features that add character. Once part of a former Victorian guest house the new owners of the self-contained, one bedroom holiday let have created a space that is perfect for your relaxing Pembrokeshire break.

It provides extremely comfortable, stylish and modern accommodation throughout, including a contemporary, shaker style kitchen, waterfall shower, and very comfortable seating. The large sofa in the living area converts into a double sofa bed (if needed) and the dining table and chairs seat four and with the added bonus of under floor heating throughout, this apartment is perfect for those all-year-round autumn and winter breaks.

The apartment has its own private parking space with an electric car charging point, so you can power up for your holiday adventures. Situated close to bus stops, Y Gorlan also makes an ideal base for guests who want a break from driving or don't have their own transport.

The rear private patio, which enjoys both countryside and distant sea views, is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee and plan the day.
It is within easy walking distance of the tiny city of St Davids, the cathedral, interesting shops and galleries, cosy pubs and restaurants. And the coastal path is only about one mile away.



Birthplace of St David and sitting on the very tip of southwest Wales, St Davids is the smallest city in Britain. Boasting a fascinating history this tiny historic city, really no more than a large village, is considered by some as perhaps the very beating heart of Pembrokeshire, Britain’s only coastal national park. Rated by National Geographic magazine experts as the second best coastline in the world with 186 miles of magnificent unspoilt coastline with stunning views, rolling countryside and taking in over 50 beaches.

Only a couple of minutes’ walk from the “city” centre, tucked away in the sheltered Alun Valley, is the magnificent 12th century St Davids Cathedral made from the beautiful local purple stone. On the opposite bank of the River Alun, which meets the sea a mile away at the picturesque harbour of Porthclais, are the medieval ruins of Bishops Palace.

St Davids is an artist’s paradise with its own unique charm. With a host of galleries showcasing paintings, ceramics, glass, tapestry and bronzes, much of it from local artists, there is something for everyone. A must to visit in St Davids is the innovative National Park Visitor Centre, Oriel y Parc, where there is plenty to see and do, with its gallery, gift shop and café with seating inside and out.
For those just wanting a mooch St Davids has it all, a local farmers market, tea-shops, pubs and restaurants and an interesting collection of shops.

The coastline around the St Davids has some of the most breath-taking coastal scenery and within a short distance from the centre you can find;
Whitesands Bay, popular with families and water sport enthusiasts eager to experience the Atlantic swells.
Caerfai Beach where the unique purple stone used in the construction of the cathedral can be found and
St Justians, home to the St Davids Lifeboat station and from where regular thrilling boat trips operate to see the marine and birdlife around the offshore Ramsey Island, with its spectacular sea cliffs teeming with seabirds and the waters frequented by seals, dolphins, porpoise and if you’re lucky perhaps a passing whale.

And at the end of the day St Davids is the perfect place to enjoy some of the best sunsets in Wales.
