Ynglŷn â Twr y Felin Hotel
Originally a windmill built in 1806, Twr y Felin is, along with the cathedral, the only high-rise structure in St Davids. Purposely positioned on the peninsula to harvest the ever-blowing winds, it lasted as a working windmill for 100 years, before the sails fell off just one too many times. Reinvention saved it then, as it has time and again. Becoming a hotel gave the building a new life, and it has remained mostly so ever since. Then it was a temperance hotel, today it is Wales’ first contemporary art hotel, filled with over 150 specially commissioned artworks and sculptures by 20 Welsh, British and international artists.
Designed to challenge the traditional, inside you’ll discover a contemporary space, accented with bespoke handcrafted furniture, linen wallpaper, and velveteen sofas.
The original windmill tower is the obvious space for the best room in house. The three floor suite includes its’ very own observatory, which boasts spectacular 360 degree views of the St Davids peninsula and beyond. On a clear day, the islands of Skomer, Grassholm and Ramsey, pierce the horizon of St Brides Bay, whilst the Preseli Hills offer a mountainous backdrop to the mostly marine landscape.
At Twr y Felin, the contemporary and traditional meet in the middle. The interior is modern, luxurious and easy, whilst the welcome is typically Welsh, warm and enveloping, our best tradition!
