About Audrey Oakley

Born and bred in Wales, I am the daughter of a country doctor who had a deep knowledge and understanding of the countryside. As a child I used to accompany him on his visits, and was encouraged from an early age to appreciate and enjoy the countryside and rural life.

Before I moved to west Wales I lived in Monmouthshire, running my own tourism business from a Grade 1 listed mediaeval home which I had restored over 20 years.

I founded and continue to organise the annual unique and whacky award-winning Really Wild Food & Countryside Festival, now in its 10th year. I am passionate about promoting local and wild foraged foods.

I also run a foraging business taking out groups or individuals.

Lovely, well equiped cottage in a great central location

  • 5 of 5

A truely lovely cottage. We had a great week in beautiful St. Davids, so nice to spend time in a dog friendly cottage that felt smart and homely (no plastic leather sofas!).

Particularly liked brightness in the extended parts of this lovely cottage. A great base to explore beautiful Pembrokeshire

Charming comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic fortnight at Poppy Cottage. It is very comfortable and spacious (we are a family of 4). It is ideal for exploring St Davids and the surrounding area. The coastal path is easy to reach from the house and St Davids itself has lots to offer. The cottage is kept to a high standard, with lovely furnishings and a well stocked kitchen, with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The garden is a lovely sun trap - overall a great place to stay!

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Poppy Cottage is a lovely property, perfectly located in the heart of St David's with lots of fabulous walks on the doorstep. Audrey was really helpful with the booking, and a minor issue on arrival was sorted quickly and easily. Excellent service. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely return.

We booked a short break here at quite short notice. Audrey, the manager was hugely helpful in sorting out our stay ( I suspect I was a bit of a pain, but she was invariably lovely.)

The cottage itself was spotlessly clean, furnished to a high standard and really cosy, in spite of the onset of Storm Imogen. We had let the housekeeper know that we would be arriving late on our first evening, and she had thoughtfully left the hall light on for us.

There are good walks right from the front door, and the bag of towels to dry off your dog in the hallway was a great idea. There is so much to see in St Davids and the surrounding area, even out of season that we were never at a loss for something to do. The cathedral is stunning, and the choral evensong is worth hearing even if you are not religious.

The Grove Hotel does exceptional food, and is very reasonable- and dog friendly!

All in all, we had a great stay, would definitely book this cottage again, and have recommended it to friends and family.
