about the property

5* Welsh holiday cottage home at St Davids in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, West Wales. This historic converted Pembrokeshire chapel has been turned into a stylish holiday home near Whitesands beach.

Capel Tŷ Ddewi is the oldest chapel in Pembrokeshire, founded in 1784, sitting just north along the coast from St Davids (1.5 miles to the centre, 2 miles to wonderful Whitesands beach). It is a simple, handsome vernacular building now converted into a luxury holiday home. The Chapel is located in a small rural hamlet, close to the historic city of St Davids with its restaurants, deli, clothing shops and magnificent cathedral. Just a mile to St Davids or two to Whitesands bay - among the finest beaches in Britain. In summer months a small shuttle minibus passes through the village that you can pick up to make the coastal walks easier - choosing, for example, to walk one way and the then minibus home.

The new owners have sympathetically used traditional and natural materials in their renovation, returning character to the building that had lost its historic interior decades ago. The views to the front and rear of the property have a coastal feel with amazing sunsets and views towards the sea and open countryside.  Located conveniently to many of the outstanding beaches that Pembrokeshire enjoys, this cottage is a joy with its beautiful surroundings, coastal walks, coasteering and activities, all within a short drive or walk.

customer reviews for Capel Tŷ Ddewi

Wow! What a beautiful cottage. Very spacious and comfortable. Close to St David’s town, beautiful beaches including Whitesands and Abereiddy. The children loved swimming in the blue lagoon with the seals! Will definitely return.

Wow!! What a beautiful place to stay. Tastefully decorated, lots of home comforts, very comfortable beds, lovely wood burning stove and everything we needed to self cater for our 3 day break. Easy walking distance from St Davids and Whitesands beach, a private decking area to enjoy the morning and afternoon sun. Fey was very helpful during our stay and keeps the cottage in excellent condition. I can highly recommend this accommodation to families and couples. Be aware of the open plan living arrangement for the whole cottage though as you can hear a pin drop from either end of the building which can create some interesting conversations over breakfast haha!

Comfortable, well-designed cottage with lots of attention to detail. We had a lovely stay and would absolutely recommend it!

A tastefully restored old chapel with spacious and quite luxurious accommodation. It is very comfortable and we particularly enjoyed the sofa and the quality mattress of the bed in the master bedroom complemented by the linen bedding - bliss! Parking is a little challenging but would definitely stay again.

A beautiful holiday retreat. We loved the décor and the home comforts. Ideally placed for walks on the coastal path and visits to St Davids. Would love to come back.

The perfect place to unwind! Beautiful location, 2 minute drive from the spectacular Whitesands and the brilliant St Davids, and a wonderfully warm and relaxing interior, stylish but chilled! Excellent log burner!

Good venue for our holiday we enjoyed the Old Chapel and its facilities. It is a lovely conversion and really handy for excursions. The house is very well equipped (although a couple more pans would have been handy). thanks for your part in a relaxing holiday.

A lovely retreat in rural St David's. There are lots to do here including some of the best coastal views ever (Porthgain to Aberreiddy) and my five year old had a great time getting to know Boris the spider at the Sloop Inn at Porthgain. The cottage was fabulous and provided a comfortable base from which to explore Pembrokeshire...the beds are super!

This is a truly beautiful property which has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard. We felt immediately at home and found it both tranquil and relaxing. It's in a great, peaceful location very close to St Davids and within driving distance of some of the best beaches in Pembrokeshire like Marloes Sands and Barafundle. We'd highly recommend it.
