About Matthew James
Hi, I'm Matthew and together with my 3 brothers we own Bryn Sion. The property has been in our family since it was built in the 1920s by our great great uncle. If you're interested in our history, please visit our website www.jamesproperties.net where you'll find how my family are rooted in the story of this village city and how my ancestors helped shape and develop it. I'm an architect by profession, working in London for the first part of my career until I came home to St.Davids a few years ago. It's a wonderfully enchanting place to live. We've let residential properties for generations and decided this year to convert this property to a holiday rental. It's ideally located, has an abundance of space, inside and outside and I've tried to provide everything that will make your stay a great one.

Great location and amenities.
St David's us a very quaint town and the house was right in the heart of it. Great garden and amenities!
Nice apartment in central location
We totally enjoyed our stay here. Everything was exactly as described on the website. Thank you Matthew for the lovely treats on our arrival! It was convenient for exploring the Pembrokeshire coast path and its location was excellent for shops, boat trips and restaurants.
Ideal for us
With its very separate bedrooms and bathrooms this was perfect for two singles. It was very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing with high quality cooking equipment.
It was good to be so near the centre of St Davids and also able to bring the dog, with east access to a suitable garden.
Excellent accomadation , great central location
Great stay will be back
Perfect spot, everything you need
We had the ground floor flat for a long weekend. The accommodation was spacious and clean and quiet. Matt was really helpful and we had a parking permit so could park right outside. The location was great, near the central square and the Cathedral but really quiet and peaceful. There is a brilliant well equipped kitchen and the big sofas were exceptionally comfortable. It was also really handy having an en suite shower and a real bath with lovely candles! Would highly recommend.
Fantastic location, clean, tidy, comfortable, excellent utilities close to all amenities
Fantastic apartment, owner helpful if assistance required. Would definitely book again.
Our beaches, coves and coastline vary from about 0.5-2 miles, 10-30 minutes walking, 2-10 minutes driving.
Bus links to Fishguard Harbour, 13 miles, to connect to Irish ferries, also to Haverfordwest, 17 miles to rail station.
Cardiff airport is approx 2 hours away.
The picturesque harbour village of Solva is about 3 miles eastbound. Haverfordwest, the market town of Pembrokeshire is 17 miles eastbound.
The city offers a variety of shops ranging from those selling local fresh produce, art and craft, surfing equipment, shoes and clothing. St. Davids seems to be emerging as a centre for clothing retail, attracting brands such as Fat-Face, White Stuff, Joules and Crew to name but a few. The city also boasts a fine farmers market which springs up around the market square every Thursday.
the main attraction is the wonderful 12th Century Cathedral and nearby Bishop's Palace. Both these stand low in the Vale of Roses on the river Alun. History tells us that this site was chosen so as to keep them safe and out of the sight of Viking invaders. Today the Cathedral is not only a place of worship, but is a spectacular venue for concerts, music festivals, ceremonial events and indeed as a film set for movie productions.
The Cathedral is unique and is one of Wales' primary tourist attractions. It is said that in the 12th Century, Pope Calixtus II decreed that two pilgrimages to St. Davids were equal to one to Rome.
Engulfing this unique village city is the beautiful coastline that attracts walkers from all over the globe. its breathtaking scenery offers an incredible resource of wildlife, bith flora and fauna, spectacular seabirds and sea life. Caves are stumbled across and offer their enchantment, and windswept beaches of golden sand provide ideal locations for picnicking, walking and many other outdoor activities such as horse riding, surfing, coasteering and kayaking.
