Trefin Village

Information about Trefin and the surrounding area

The Village is situated in north Pembrokeshire on the St Davids Pensinsula, almost equidistant from Fishguard and St Davids.

There is a pub (The Ship) and a Cafe (The Mill) situated in the Village and the nearest shop and fuel are 1.2 miles away at Square and Compass.

Coastal Location

Trefin is just a short walk from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and just outside of the village are some splendid sea views and a small beach called Aberfelin.

There are a few short circular walks that take in sections of the Coast Path from Trefin, you could walk along the coast to Porthgain and enjoy a well deserved drink at the Sloop, then follow the country road back to our Village or for the more adventurous a walk along the cliffs to Strumble Head Lighthouse might appeal - the return journey can be made via the Strumble Shuttle bus service if required.

Old Mill

The ruins of Melin Trefin (Trefin Mill) can be found on the ourskirts of the village - above Aberfelin Cove on route to Porthgain. The mill was in operation of some 500 years and is probably the main reason that Trefin exists at all.

St Davids

Some 8 miles east of Trefin is the UK's smallest City, St Davids. A very picturesque City which is more akin to a small Town. Hidden away in a valley to the north west of the center is St Davids Cathedral. and a ruined Bishops Palace - both attracting great numbers of visitors to this part of Pembrokeshire.
In St davids you will find a small supermarket, various shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Fishguard & Goodwick

Approx 9 miles to the east of Trefin are the twin Towns of Goodwick and Fishguard. Trains arrive at Goodwick on a regular basis and good connections are available to and from Carmarthen and Cardiff.
Fishguard has a good selection of shops and two small supermarkets and is also home to the Last Invasion Tapestry - depicting how a local woman thwarted the French in their last attempt to invade this part of Wales.
