About The Area
St Davids is Britain’s smallest city and has many interesting places to explore. The magnificent cathedral, is uniquely built in a hollow so that it is out of sight of the sea and was well hidden from marauders in olden times. The ruined Bishop’s Palace is the venue for a drama season in the Summer, and there are several famous music Festivals in the cathedral. If pottery is your interest, you can try your hand at making your own at one of the many pottery centres.
Pembrokeshire has the only coastal National Park in Britain, and the coast path is 186 miles long, so many walkers are attracted to our area throughout the year.
Situated on a peninsular, Torbant Farmhouse is ideally suited to be a base for walking the path which is well marked and well kept. Whichever way you go, the views are absolutely stunning with a different one around each corner. For those without a car there is a shuttle bus running around the coastal roads and we can also arrange for your luggage to be taken to your next destination.
Torbant Farmhouse is situated just 1.5 miles from the coast at Trefin, so water sports are high on the agenda for many of our guests, so whether paddling along the sandy beaches, digging sandcastles, bird watching or taking part in sailing, surfing, windsurfing or coasteering if these are some of your favourites then this is the place to be .
In the Spring, which comes early in this part of the country, the cliffs and hedgerows explode with fantastic colours with wild flowers – primroses, thrift, sea-campion, bluebells and of course, daffodils and young animals, big and small, arrive.
We are quietly situated, just south of the A487 – Fishguard to St Davids road, 1 mile on the Fishguard side of Croesgoch village. Well signposted.
There are several wonderful islands off this coast, Ramsey and Skomer being the largest and home to vast colonies of seabirds, including the Puffins and Shearwaters, who nest in their thousands during the Spring. The Atlantic Grey Seal also has its home here all round the year, in the Autumn they have their pups who can be seen, and heard. Boat trips are available to take you to the best vantage points where you can see everything from birds to whales and dolphins .
