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.
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.
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.

About Phil Jayne
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
Why Phil Jayne chose Solva
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.
What makes this apartment unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We’ve really enjoyed our week there in this lovely spacious surroundings with the lovely views across the bay. The house martins too have been intriguing and entertaining companions!
I loved my say here so much thank you, I love the flat and also my bed was so comfy so sleeping was a treat!
We’ve had a lovely week, thank you! Even when cooped up inside due to the rain we didn’t mind because of the amazing view. Just one suggestion – would it be possible to have a periscope so you can still see the view from the bath ;0)
Thank you – wonderful flat amazingly situated! Much appreciated and enjoyed.
