Felin Isaf,
St Davids,

An exquisitely refurbished medieval barn downstream from St. Davids Cathedral, the church of the Patron Saint of Wales, half a mile from the sea. Hidden in its own idyllic, wild valley Y Bwthyn offers a secluded paradise to the adventurous

The cottage is 10 minutes walk on a bridle track from the centre of St. Davids with its array of tasteful shops, pubs, first class restaurants and bistros serving local lamb, Welsh Black beef and locally caught seafood. The cottage sleeps two. The bedroom has a king-size double bed, which can also be separated to form twin beds. Though designed for an occupancy of two, the cottage does offer a carry cot for a baby. It has a bathroom with shower/sit and an open plan sitting room with a wood burning stove, central heating, washing machine, T.V,and DVD player. There is a well-equipped kitchen and dining area with a private patio and BBQ. A bookshelf is stacked with local maps, guides and reference books covering the cultural life of old and modern Wales.

The following is an extract from a letter home of an American visitor to Y Bwthyn, whose family very kindly forwarded the extract to me for my information:

We are in Wales now, which is indescribably beautiful. Two days ago we drove all along the western shore of Wales. It is all mountains and wild flowers and the ocean breaking against the sandy beaches and rocky cliffs. The scenery is breathtaking and the weather is perfect - sunny with the occasional shower conspiring to create the finest of light. Yesterday we arrived in St. Davids, the home of the Patron Saint of Wales. It is really inspiring. I have fallen in love with this place. I love the whole atmosphere, the endless sea and the undulating, rich green hills, broken periodically by jagged out-crops of weather-torn rock. England cannot hold a candle to Wales in my book. This country is outstandingly lovely. I wish I had a home here overlooking the sea and mountains. I doubt that I would ever leave.
