COASTAL APARTMENT WITH STUNNING VIEWS, NEAR THE PEMBROKESHIRE COASTAL PATH

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Solva - Skomer View, Solva

Two bedroom 2nd floor property with lounge, kitchen/diner and bathroom. Wi-Fi.

Set on the top floor of historic Llanunwas House our modern, light but cosy apartment has a stunning view directly over the wide panorama of St Brides Bay to the islands of Skomer and Skokholm.

Llanunwas is a historic mansion in a country landscape; as you leave the road at Upper Solva and drive into the woods, you will appreciate you are somewhere special. Enjoy two acres of lawns and gardens with a mix of sunny and shaded areas – ideal for sitting and relaxing, or for children to explore.

Nearby is Britain’s smallest city, St Davids, home of the magnificent cathedral, National Park Visitor Centre, speciality shops and restaurants. Surprisingly, in contrast to its tranquillity, St Davids is also the place to start an adventure - book fast boat trips to the islands, coasteer or kayak around the coves or learn to surf at Whitesands Bay.

Accommodation

Skomer View sleeps 4 in one double and one twin bedroom. The bathroom has a bath with shower over, wash basin and toilet.

The lounge is an ideal place to relax and look out over the sea and the islands. It is light and airy in summer and warm and cosy in winter and has a flat screen television with Freeview satellite channels, DVD player and free Wi-Fi.

The kitchen diner has a full range of modern appliances, including hob, grill and oven, fridge freezer, washing machine/dryer and microwave.

Outside

Attractive lawns surround the house, with plenty of space for outdoor activities. Secure storage provides a home for our deckchairs and picnic furniture, with room for cycles or fishing rods. There is parking immediately next to the house.

Pembrokeshire is an area of outstanding beauty with tremendous variety. From majestic cliffs to sand dunes, from broad river estuaries to cascading streams, from gently rolling arable land to rocky outcrop - all can be seen within a few miles of each other.

To protect and preserve this beauty and the wildlife it supports we have the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, West Wales Trust and The National Trust.

We are a couple in our early sixties, semi-retired from careers in countryside management, tourism and outdoor education. We love to walk and now have the time to indulge our interests in local history and wildlife - and, of course, visiting local pubs and restaurants! Our grandchildren love to visit Skomer View and we are pleased that the family enjoy our little getaway too.

Phil Jayne purchased this apartment in 2010

We'd looked for somewhere to buy in Pembrokeshire for three years, but never quite found the right combination of a house with character, sea views and easy access to the coast. When we stood at the window of Skomer View looking out over St Bride's Bay, we knew we'd found it.

We never tire of looking out over the bay towards the islands. Five minutes' walk gets us to the Coast Path - turn left for Solva, turn right for St Davids! Afternoons lazing in the sunny gardens, reading and listening to the birds...sometimes until the sun sets over Ramsay Island - and, in the winter, sitting warm in Skomer View watching the weather.

Home-from-Home experience!

We had a great holiday in this warm, well equipped apartment. The location makes it ideal to use as a base from which to explore Pembrokeshire. The apartment block has easy access to the coastal path, which we walked on most days.

The apartment has all the necessary features required to allow a stress-free stay. An added bonus is the wi-fi connection. It is as described within this web-description.

The owner, Phil, provides a quick and efficient service and is only too happy to provide help and advise if asked.

We left with a heavy-heart but came home with 'batteries' recharged.

All the best Phil and Lesley and good luck for the future.
Owner's Response: Hello Christine, thank you very much for your positive review. It's good to know that our visitors enjoy Skomer View as much as we do. We are hoping for good weather this season and to get down to Solva as often as we can.

Regards

Lesley

Peace and quiet

  • Review Submitted: 30-Dec-2012

Peace and quiet and a fantastic view from the windows, what more can you ask for? Even the weather wasn’t that bad, if a little chilly at times. Walk the coast path to Newgale, the views are amazing and if you want to see the stunning beaches (and seals) head to the point overlooking Skomer Island and then to Marloes Sands. We now head back to reality after a week away but feeling relaxed and ready!

Lovely apartment

  • Review Submitted: 30-Dec-2012

We experienced the complete range of weather. There were lovely walks when it was warm and sunny and we were always snug and cosy in the flat when the wind and rain raged outside! We are going home invigorated after our stay. Great views whatever the weather. Many thanks.

Excellent holiday

  • Review Submitted: 30-Dec-2012

Excellent holiday all round – good walking, good pubs and a very comfortable apartment – absolutely everything we needed! The Sound Cafe in St. David’s is very good for informal dining with tapas, burgers, etc – a very warm welcome. Good atmosphere in pub in Upper Solva. Many thanks Phil and Lesley for a great holiday, we hope to be back.

Solva

Solva is a lovely little village with a picturesque harbour where you can while away many an hour. If you have children they will enjoy crabbing off the Quay while you enjoy a quiet drink at the boat club and cafe. There are a number of great places to eat; relaxed tea rooms, a more upmarket restaurant and choice of pubs, serving, Indian and Chinese food.

Less than 3 miles along the coast you can visit St. David's the smallest city in Wales where you can visit the cathedral and afterwards discover the delights of the shops, pubs and tea rooms. If you want a special night out why not book a meal at the renowned 'Cwtch' restaurant? Newgale beach and Whitesands bay, a magnet for families and surfers, are also within easy reach of Solva.

If you enjoy walking there's no better place to be than the Pembrokeshire National Park. This part of Pembrokeshire has some spectacular stretches of coastline, and of course you can leave the car behind and return to Solva by bus.
