January can be a gloomy month! Post Christmas blues, cold days, long dark nights and abandoning your New Year Resolutions can make it all seem a bit glum. No wonder the third Monday of January is called Blue Monday. But you can lift your spirits by joining us for a lovely hostel weekend at St. David’s.

Pembrokeshire’s ruggedly beautiful coastline and heather moorland is steeped in Celtic history. Close-by ancient St. David’s is the smallest city in the UK with a population of just 1,700! Parts of its Cathedral date back 1,500 years and David’s symbol, the leek, is now the national symbol of Wales.

The hostel is a converted farmhouse and set in a stunning location, nestled beneath the rocky Carn Llidi and Carnedd-Lleithr and close to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands Bay – known as a great surfing beach. It truly is a rural retreat, pretty much as far west as you can go in Wales with breathtaking bays, beaches and hills.

Unlike St. David himself I can’t guarantee we’ll refrain from eating meat or drinking beer, but we’re sure to have a wonderful time. So don’t be down, cast off all those thoughts about Blue Monday and come along to join friends and a warm welcome at St. David’s.
