Built in 1806 as a working windmill, today Twr y Felin is Wales’ first contemporary art hotel, located in Britain’s smallest city, St Davids. Offering a ‘Croeso Cynnes’ – ‘warm Welsh welcome’, stay on bed and breakfast basis or choose to dine at Blas restaurant. We welcome both resident and non-resident guests alike and are open daily for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and drinks.
Meticulously restored and extended, featuring contemporary design throughout which, contrasts beautifully with the unique characteristics of the historic building, the hotel is now home to 19 en-suite bedrooms and two unique suites – including ‘Tyddewi’ – a distinctive space occupying the site’s original windmill tower, which boasts spectacular 360 degree views of the St Davids Peninsula from its very own observatory.
Twr y Felin Hotel’s restaurant Blas – meaning ‘Taste’ in Welsh – offers a menu influenced by the season and locality, with dishes designed to reflect Wales and its produce. Cornel Bar is a pre-dinner art lover’s snug offering seasonal drinks and cocktails, whilst Oriel Lounge is a dedicated gallery space, with a relaxed ambience, perfect for guests to enjoy lunch or afternoon tea.
As an art hotel, Twr y Felin features the works of 20 Welsh, British and International artists, with over 100 pieces of specially commissioned art, inspired by the St Davids peninsula and Pembrokeshire, on display throughout the hotel.
Set in its own private grounds, just a few hundred metres from the centre of St Davids and the 6th century St Davids Cathedral, Twr y Felin is also just a ten-minute walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the beach at Caerfai Bay. Opposite the hotel is Oriel y Parc National Park Visitor Centre and Gallery which offers information on the local area and displays the changing exhibitions of the National Museum Wales collections.
The hotel joins sister properties, Roch Castle and Penrhiw Hotel, as a luxury accommodation provider in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and is the first fully serviced hotel in the group of heritage properties.
