St Davids and the Cathedral Close, to give it its full title, is well known as Britain’s smallest city. It’s a really lovely place with a lot of variety; a majestic cathedral and palace buildings all set in beautiful wooded countryside. You can even see the sea in the distance.
Pembrokeshire is famous for its beaches and the St David’s peninsula has its fair share. Caerfai pictured below is a fine example and only a 20 minute walk (about one mile) away. It’s a lovely beach, and dog friendly all year round.
The picturesque village and harbour at Solva is a great place to start or end a walk, having lots of places to eat and drink and some interesting shops.

Porthclais is a lovely and picturesque little harbour less than a mile and a half away. There’s a car park, loos and in summer a tea spot selling tea and cakes.
