A treasure hunt for kids – from Yewdale Cottage

We’ve had lots of fun putting together this treasure hunt for children, which begins and ends at Yewdale Cottage. The idea is that you print out the ‘clue’ images in advance (or simply look at them on your phone or tablet device as you walk around the route – if you can get any signal!) and then try to find the 18 clues in and around St David’s. There is a ‘Treasure Map’ (with the locations of all the numbered clues marked on it) here, too, for parents or guardians to print out and make sure that everyone follows the correct figure-of-eight route. Just click on the clues and map below to enlarge the images:

The only thing we can’t provide is the ‘treasure’ – but we have found that an ice cream from Gianni’s usually goes down a treat with youngsters…!

Winter at Yewdale Cottage

We just spent a lovely long weekend in St. David’s, making the most of the crisp, bright, cold mornings and doing lots of beautiful wintery walks. We were delighted to see some lovely entries in our guestbook from Christmas guests, who all enjoyed their time at Yewdale…

Foraging for supper – in St. David’s


Just in from another glorious walk along the cliff-top coastal path. We have seen many parts of the UK coastline and this is by far the most beautiful – raw, majestic and with the bluest sea. Forget Cornwall! Pembrokeshire wins hands down any time – and it’s less busy, which is also a bonus when you’re trying to relax! After a stroll along the path, it’s time for supper – perhaps you might like to do some FORAGING – and catch a fishy for your dishy on a mackerel fishing trip (this is not for the faint hearted or squeamish!) There are lots of trips, which you can book in the main square in St. David’s. Our resident foodie did just that:

Tasty fresh, barbecued with lemon:


Next, he went crabbing at Porth Clais harbour (bacon is great bait!)…

…but it was just a tiddler, so he threw it back in and decided to focus on FRESH MUSSELS!


There are lots to be found around Solva – delicious cooked in cream and cider with garlic – mmmmm. You’ll be amazed at how many you can gather in a washing up bowl! (There’s always CKs supermarket in St. David’s though, if you aren’t in a foraging mood!)

Our 4 star self-catering holiday cottage in the heart of St. David’s (Yewdale Cottage) provides the perfect base for a holiday at any time of year.

Yewdale Cottage – spring garden


The back garden at Yewdale Cottage is a great size and fully enclosed, so safe for dogs and/or children. We made this little film to show you the lawn area and the splendid views of the Cathedral we are lucky enough to enjoy…
