Other Local Communities
We’ve already mentioned St Davids and Solva – here are some other communities within easy reach of Asheston Eco Barns…
This ancient Landsker settlement, formerly known as Grinton or Grinston, is less than one mile from the eco barns and includes a well known Independent chapel.
The name of this hamlet, once known as Llanfreudeth, is thought to be derived from that of the Irish St Brigid, who is known as St Bride here in Wales. The main southern pilgrim route to St Davids used to divert inland past Brawdy during the winter, when Newgale was too treacherous.
A tiny hamlet with our most local bus stop for Haverfordwest, Solva and St. Davids.
The Norman De Heita family founded this tiny Landsker settlement, which includes a church and chapel, and the remains of the De Heita family’s castle – a large Motte and Bailey. Nearby Hayscastle Cross is the home to some prehistoric tumps and the Cross Inn pub, which is popular with locals and visitors alike.
A small hamlet which includes a church and is though to have been named after either St Teilo, one of Wales’s most famous saints, or St Tylwyf, of whom no surviving record exists.
Facing onto the magnificent Newgale Sands, this little coastal village includes a surf shop, café, pub, public toilets and extensive car parking.
One of the main settlements along this part of the landsker frontier, this village includes an attractive Norman peel tower castle on top of rocky crag, built by Adam De La Roch, who accompanied Strongbow on his invasion of Ireland. There’s an attractive Norman church close to the castle, as well as a village shop/post office and the Victoria Inn.
