There is so much to do in St Davids and surrounding areas. Today, it was walking weather so here are my Top 5 places to visit in September. I also have included two visits to do in case it does rain.
Top 5 Places to Visit in September
My favourite, if you stay with us just walk out of Ty Mortimer cottage, head westwards to join the coastal path at Lower Treginnis.
Dominating the peninsula are some of Wales’s oldest rocks – from the Precambrian era.
The rocks are volcanic in origin, covered in places by layers of sedimentary Cambrian rock.
Seals and their pups seen in the small coves.
Have your picnic at the disused Copper Mines which are opposite the white house on Ramsey Island. Keep a lookout for porpoises in Ramsey Sound, usually the gannets are diving into the sea and the porpoises are just below busy feeding.
Many intrepid sea-kayakers negotiating the shallow reef known as The Bitches near Ramsey Island.
ST DAVIDS CATHEDRAL
St Davids Cathedral is situated in St Davids, Pembrokeshire.
After parking in Oriel Y Parc car park situated on the road from Haverfordwest, walk down our small city, down the Pebbles to find our beautiful cathedral set down in the valley.
There are groups of trained volunteers to guide you around this magnificent cathedral.
Visit the recently restored St Davids Shrine.
In the Nave each of the rounded arches are carved with a different pattern. Look up to view the wooden ceiling.
So much more to see.
