An overview of Island View
Island View is a generously-sized detached cottage tucked just five minutes away from the coast, with breath-taking views of Whitesands Bay, Ramsey Island and rugged Carn Llidi hill. The blue-flag award-winning Whitesands beach is a short 10 minute walk away, and is widely regarded as one of the best surfing beaches in Wales. If you prefer more gentle leisure pursuits, the mile-long expanse of golden sand provides the perfect opportunity for a stroll, while your inner marine-biologist can enjoy exploring the rockpools teaming with fascinating sea life.
The cottage sleeps up to 13 people in 5 bedrooms, so is ideal for groups of friends or families holidaying together. The master bedroom features a super-king bed and has a panoramic view across Whitesands bay and Ramsey Island. The neighbouring triple room also boasts a super-king bed, as well as a single, and enjoys the same fabulous views. Towards the rear is a twin room (two single beds), and a king bedroom with ensuite shower. Looking across to the craggy slopes of Carn Llidi is the family-sized fifth bedroom with a king bed, and two single beds.
There is ample room to relax and socialise in Island View, with a large sitting-room, conservatory and dining room – all with sea views. Board games, WiFi and the 50” Smart TV with Apple connectivity provide the entertainment for quiet, cosy evenings in, and the dining room doubles as a great office space if you need to tuck yourself away and do a little working from home. The kitchen is equipped with all the essentials you need to prepare a family feast, while enjoying the view of Carn Llidi. The utility room has a generous fridge-freezer, washing machine and dryer.
With a maximum of three steps to access all parts of the property, Whitesands is a great choice for family members of all ages. That includes four-pawed family members – dogs with well-behaved owners are very welcome here!
Island View has a private car-park for up to 5-6 cars, and the large garden behind is very private with a lawned play area. In front of the conservatory and sitting-room with views across Whitesands bay is a large patio area with two picnic tables to enjoy alfresco dining.
The scenic and friendly St Davids City links golf club is a few minutes down the road, and welcomes members and visitors alike. Island View is also wonderfully situated for short walks to discover local gems like St David’s Head, Carn Llidi, St Justinian’s lifeboat station, the UK’s smallest cathedral city of St Davids, and two quieter sandy beaches of Porth Melgan and Porthlyski. Whitesands beach as already mentioned is a Blue Flag beach, with toilet and café facilities, and has lifeguards on duty throughout the summer months. During the quieter months (October – April) the beach is dog-friendly, and this is also when surfing is at its best.
