PANTEG FARMHOUSE COTTAGE is located in the picturesque village of Solva, with its unspoilt harbour and small accessible beach- just a ten minute walk from the cottage. Solva is found along the North Pembrokeshire coastline, between the cathedral city of St Davids and the rolling waves of Newgale beach. The village, built upon a tidal estuary, has a range of pubs and cafes serving good food, art galleries, as well as a pottery, a general store, and a post office. Solva is flanked by the stunning scenery and wildlife of the Pembrokeshire coastal path which is perfect for families to explore come rain or shine.
These two four-bedroom Pembrokeshire style cottages (BOATHOUSE COTTAGE is next door see cottage ID number 8160869) have been developed on the site of the original Panteg farmhouse incorporating existing buildings and recycling old stone. They have been built with close consideration to the principles of sustainable homes and include solar panels, heat source pumps, underfloor heating, and double entry wood burning stoves. Furnished with oak floors and stair cases and using a mix of antique furniture and contemporary pieces, the cottages have been finished to a high specification as well as having their individual character.
The decor is enhanced by local, original art work: soft furnishings by Seaforth Designs, fabrics by Vanessa Arbuthnott who credits her seaside designs from ‘many happy hours combing the beaches of Pembrokeshire and throws and rugs from Melintregwynt and Solva Wollen Mill.
The properties have outside bike/surfboard stores and good parking arrangements. On the spacious ground floor, there is a contemporary, stylish kitchen and dining area with a pine dresser and a farmhouse table that seats eight comfortably. The kitchen, with granite worktops, is fitted with an electric eye-level double oven, halogen hob, microwave, dishwasher, larder style fridge-freezer and wine cooler. From the kitchen is a slate floor utility room with washing machine, dryer and access to a wet room with shower and toilet.
The lounge area has comfortable sofas and arms chairs and a flat screen TV/DVD player. There is also a music system which plays CDs, iPhone 5s and radio; the internal speakers allow for music in the lounge and/or kitchen area. Guests are welcome to borrow books and films from the well stocked shelves. There is a central double entry wood burning stove that, along with the underfloor heating, heats the lounge and the sun room.
The sun room has a table with eight chairs as an alternative for dining and provides access via the bi-folding doors to a paved and lawn area with garden furniture. The ground floor has a spaciously light feel, with areas for mealtimes, entertaining, watching TV, quiet reading or board games.

Lovely house, perfectly placed and very generous with the Christmas/New Years hamper. Thank you very much for having us we will be back again!!!
December 2015- Christmas
This was my first visit to Wales and I’m sure it won’t be the last. I’ve fallen in love with your house, the area, the stunning views and the warm reception we’ve received from everyone we’ve met. Thank you Dolores and Frazer for making our stay so comfortable. All your thoughtful touches has set this stay way above anywhere else we have stayed and will guarantee a return for us . Frazer, you are one lucky man to have cakes and bakes like those made for us by Dolores….. they were delicious and were a welcome treat to come back to after some wintry, windy walks.
Don’t change a thing….. it’s perfect the way it is. Best wishes from us all
What a find! Fabulous hospitality and an amazing view for our girls’ weekend. Cannot recommend it highly enough. We will be back.
Three amazing days in this fantastic house and area. Enjoyed the hottest November day on record and walking the costal path in T shirts. We cannot speak highly enough about the welcome we received at Panteg farmhouse. Thank you for all your attention to detail. I am sure we will return sometime soon.
What a stunning house. We have absolutely loved staying in Panteg Farmhouse. So beautifully furnished, well equipped amazing views.
The welcome hamper was fantastic and extremely generous. The kids loved the Hallow’een chocolates, pumpkins and ghouls. Lovely soaps, hand cream etc a really lovely touch. Thank you.
We enjoyed some beautiful coastal walks. Newgale to Solva (5½ miles) stunning but hard work with all the steps! St Davids to Solva (4 miles?) equally beautiful but much easier.
The Cambrian definitely worth a visit – gorgeous food (but very large portions!) So good we went twice.
Horse riding at Nolton Riding Stables was fab – riding along beautiful beach – definitely recommended.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful week. We have loved staying in Panteg Farmhouse. The house is absolutely beautiful and the furnishings are stunning. This is a house we could happily live in for the rest of our lives! Thank you for all of the local goodies- such a treat!
We were lucky with the weather and the surf at Whitesands Bay was great. Walks on the coastal path, sandcastles and rock pooling on the beach, coffee at Café 35, Bishops Palace and the Cathedral and the Admirals Breakfast at Sound Café – what not to love!. We even ventured as far as south as St Govan’s head which is well worth a visit. What a wonderful week in Pembrokeshire for adults and children alike. Thank you.
Where do we begin??. We are completely lost for words, your house is utterly beautiful, it exceeded all of our expectation. The thoughtful personal touches made us feel so welcome; being here was the whole package. The views, the village and surrounding areas were just perfect! We have fallen in love with this home and Solva. We will return for sure. We’re so sorry we didn’t get to actually met you. Thank you so very much, Dolores and Frazer.
We have rented numerous houses throughout the country; this is by far the best appointed, furnished, designed and equipped. The standard fully justifies the prices charged. The personal little touches including the welcome hamper, flowers etc were very much appreciated by six adults. A very big ‘Thank you’.
Our thanks for a wonderful stay in your lovely home. From the generous welcome hamper which we really enjoyed to the thoughtful touches throughout and the very high level of equipment and furnishings we found exceptional. We were very lucky with weather and were able to make a good use of Frazer’s folly on several evenings enjoying the beautiful sunsets.
Thoroughly enjoyed CWTCH* in St Davids and also the Cambrian (twice!) here in Solva. Found the cost path absolutely beautiful too a must for keen walkers. Thanks again for a wonderful stay. We’ll be back.
29th – 5th September 2015
We had a brilliant time guys. Panteg Farmhouse Cottage is perfect for a family break away from it all. I hope that they never improve mobile reception! Without the mobile for a week is such a relief! The Cambrian inn, cafe 35 on the quayside was good too. We discovered another gem in the part of the world we love the best.
22nd – 29th August 2015 Dolores and Frazer – you have thought of everything! All the little details are delightful from such a well-appointed cottage down to all the little extras like the wonderful hamper, prosecco and beautiful flowers in dainty vases dotted all over the house. We loved the views from the “lower” – bright moonlight evenings looking over the bay were very relaxing. Suzie loves her little teddy in her cot – thank you. A wonderful place to unwind and spend time with all the family.
15th – 21st August 2015
This has been the perfect house for 3 generations of family to stay together. Everyone was catered for and we all “loved” the hamper (especially the cakes and prosecco!!) We have never stayed in such a well catered holiday home. We were able to enjoy the garden & balcony for barbecues while the sun shone but were also able to make use of the games and dvd’s when it rained!! We love Solva and will hopefully be back – thank you both!
8th – 15th August 2015 We have had a wonderful week. The house is beautiful we have especially enjoyed having dinner watching the sunset & looking at the views. The boys enjoyed eating up at Frazer’s folly as much as we enjoyed the views and a glass of fizz up there. The hamper & prosecco was fab and much enjoyed – thank you. We are all a little sad to be leaving the house & solva. Solva itself it’s great & the lovely present you left for the boys has been put to great use. We hope very much to be back soon. Thank you! Oh and Gianni’s and the Cambrian were great suggestions as was the shed at porthgain.
1st – 8th August 2015
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. You
