About The Owner

After having visited West Wales for many years, we decided to move here in 2011.

I work privately in the health sector, as well as looking after the properties along with my husband.

We are always accessible and willing to help our guests at all times.

I enjoy playing my piano, boating and walking with our dog on the coast path.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1995

Why The Owner chose Solva

What makes this cottage unique

We loved the sheltered, peaceful location with beautiful walks from the door, as well as the rustic character of the 300 year old cottages.

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in this cottage. It was clean and bright and had everything we could need. Lots of space and character. It was quiet and peaceful. The only negative we had was we couldn't walk into solva as it was a bit far.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone wanting a secluded peaceful holiday.

Idyllic retreat

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. The cottage was clean with all the facilities we needed. When we arrived there were tea bags, a pint of milk and welshcakes waiting for b us v which was a lovely touch. The cottage was ten minutes drive away from a beautiful sandy bay and the coast path, and close to some nice pubs that served good food. The cottage was on a quiet location and very peaceful. The rooms were large enough for us, with a lovely log fire in the lounge, although it was too hot to.light the fire! The cottage is dog friendly and our border collie also enjoyed her stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice property in romote location

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was homely and nice and the area was remote and peaceful however close to solva and st davids, lots of nice walks in the area. on the whole we were happy with our stay, although there were a few areas for improvement:

1. wifi - signal does not reach any more than a step away from the router, as a result I had to buy more mobile data

2. cleanliness, the property was clean however it could have been to a higher standard, some dusty areas / damp patches and spiders

3. TV- was not possible to get a clear signal

4. several light bulbs were blown

5. sofas were not very comfy

6. would have been good if towels were provided

If you want to be away from the hubub of a town this is great.

  • 3 of 5

Nice large cottage - slightly out of it for us, we have a dog and would haeike I have been able to walk to the pub at night.... But that's not possible.

Solva is a nice village and has at least 4 pubs and a shop (use Google maps to find it)

Good location to visit the rest of the peninsula.

For us was just a little out of the way.

The nearest village is Solva which is within walking distance. St Davids is 3 miles away.

Further Details:

The cottages are situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only coastal National Park in Britain, offering stunning views from majestic cliffs to gently rolling pasture land. The Park has just been judged the second most outstanding coastal destination by National Geographic Magazine.

The 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of Britain’s National Trails. It is made so interesting by the variety of landscapes and breathtaking scenery you pass through on your way along it. The seasonal bus services are designed for walkers. - travel by bus for a few miles and walk back along the Coast Path at your own pace.

There are also some remarkably pleasant towns and villages to explore, rest, refresh and recuperate in; especially after experiencing those views!

The magnificent Cathedral at St Davids has dominated the landscape since the 12th Century and is worthy of a visit. During May and June it is host to a feast of classical music at the Cathedral Festival.

If you enjoy the water, you can visit Ramsey Island on a guided boat trip or try kayaking or windsurfing. Children can enjoy watching the sheepdog training near St Davids, go dolphin watching, or visit Folly Farm or Oakwood.

For those looking for a more relaxing pace, spend the day at one of the many stunning beaches and then relax over a drink or meal in one of the wonderful pubs or restaurants.
