    Tŵr y Felin

    Incorporating an odd circular tower that was once a windmill, this chic boutique hotel is St Davids' most upmarket option. The entire building is lathered with specially commissioned contemporary art, with dozens of pieces in the lounge-bar and restaurant (Blas) alone. The 21 bedrooms are all luxurious, but the most spectacular is the three-level circular suite in the tower itself. Blas (Welsh for 'taste'; mains £19 to £23) is highly regarded for its use of local fish and foraged ingredients.

    Waterings

    Offering more privacy than your typical B&B, the Waterings has only two rooms in the main house but a further five in an attached outbuilding opening onto the garden, all with unabashedly cheery nautical names like 'The Bosuns Room'. The garden rooms are large and suite-like, with a semi-separated sitting area and their own external entrances. Breakfasts are excellent.

    YHA St Davids

    If you're an enthusiastic walker or you have your own transport, this former farmhouse tucked beneath Carn Llidi, 2 miles northwest of St Davids and near surfers' playground Whitesands Bay, is a wonderful option. The cowsheds now house snug dorms and twins, and an inviting communal kitchen. En-suite rooms sleep four people and there's bike storage available.

    Caerfai Bay Caravan & Tent Park

    A 15-minute walk south of St Davids, this large campground has good facilities and exceptional views across St Brides Bay. It's set at the edge of a dairy farm, not far from the coast path. Confusingly, there's another campground-farm called Caerfai Farm located close by; they're separate but related concerns (if one is full they'll put you onto the other).

    Coach House

    The 10 bright, simple rooms at the Coach House are just part of its appeal. Friendly and helpful hosts, great breakfasts and the central location all conspire to make it one of St Davids' better options. The owner sells oggies (the Welsh answer to Cornwall's pastie; £6) from his front window to passersby on the main street.

    Ramsey House

    The young owners have created a fashionable boutique-style B&B in their duck-egg-blue house on the outskirts of the little city. The six rooms are all different but feature bold wallpapers, matching chandeliers, silky throws, goose-down duvets and stylish bathrooms. Not suitable for children.

    Y Glennydd

    Decorated with maritime memorabilia, this 1880s terraced house was built to accommodate coast guard officers and has a traditional, bordering on old-fashioned, feel. Some of the 11 smallish, unfussy bedrooms have views over Whitesands, and there's a cosy lounge-bar downstairs.

    Bryn Awel

    Well positioned on the High St, Bryn Awel has small but cosy rooms (all en suite) spread over two floors of a handsome timber-floored Victorian. The owners are outdoors enthusiasts, and can advise on the best local spots for walking and birdwatching.

    Grove

    Offering upmarket pub accommodation, the Grove's rooms have all been refurbished, giving them a fresh, up-to-the-moment look. The downstairs rooms are particularly large and stylish, while they're simpler and smaller upstairs. Expect a bit of noise from the bar, but it's closed by midnight and rarely raucous – pack earplugs or join in.

    Pencarnan Farm

    Set on a large working farm with a miniature-horse stud, this campground is the most westerly in Wales. There are 60 level pitches within walking distance of an almost private beach. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are available for rent. The site is 2 miles from St Davids; head in the direction of St Justinian and follow the signs.
