If you need to get away from it all for a while head our way. Things move at a different pace in our part of West Wales and you'll soon find yourself adjusting to 'Pembrokeshire Time'. Electricity arrived in Trefin as late as 1958 and there are still aspects of the modern world that haven't reached us yet. The nearest big supermarket is 17 miles away but just up on the main road is the Square and Compass garage for all your basic shopping needs. Otherwise Fishguard (10 miles away) has a Co-op and local Nisa supermarket, and a Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, whilst St Davids (7 miles away) has a good quality veg shop, butchers, Deli and local Nisa supermarket too.

A short stroll from the hostel is The Ship Inn, our 'congenial village local' as described by The Good Beer Guide. There's always a guest ale on tap and Mike and Meriel specialise in serving up hearty portions of old favourites like Pembrokeshire pork & leek sausages and steak & ale pie. Food is served until 9 pm 7 days a week.  

The Mill Café, next door to The Ship Inn, has excellent quality food including all day breakfasts and a choice menu at lunch times.  If you're over a certain age then you're lucky enough to qualify for their excellent value 3 course lunch on a Tuesday lunch time.
