|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Whether you stride or stroll off to the headland, skip down the path to the harbour or simply enjoy the garden, you will find this charming cottage ideally situated with it's superb views of the sea and islands lying off the coast of Pembrokeshire's National Park, and very close to it's renowned Coastal Path.Tastefully furnished with antiques and colourful fabrics, it is well planned and offers everything for a relaxing trouble-free holiday. The south-facing patio is bathed in sunshine,
a place to share your breakfast with the robin and black bird, where the midday sun filters through the eucalyptus and (if you are lucky) a candle lit dinner is often possible. The large, lawned garden is so enticing that some hardly venture further afield, however the coastal path is a minute away, as is the path down to the harbour with safe swimming, sand and rock- pools at low-tide and 'crabbing', sailing, fishing..... The bustling village of lower Solva has lots to offer - restaurants, pubs, shops, galleries.
Supplies, Restaurants, Pubs and Fresh Crab: Five minutes walk away is the village store and off-licence (open everyday 8 till late) here you can
buy most essentials, it also has a Post Office section (norm. opening hours). The farm shop is 1.5 km
away for fresh fruit and veg. St.Davids has a good supermarket (delicious fresh bread baked throughout
the day) and a lovely delicatessence. The closest large town, Haverfordwest has umpteen supermarkets,
some providing on-line order. There is a local catering service that will provide wonderful meals as and when
you require them. In the village, four local pubs all provide excellent food in addition to the three restaurants
that cater for those 'special' evenings. Down on the quai there is a licenced tea-room for snacks and sandwiches and, if you are lucky, you might manage to persuade a fisherman to part with some of his catch.
Just up the road from the cottage you can buy superb DRESSED-CRAB and lobster... an absolute MUST before you leave.
Further afield: Apart from the beaches, boats and coastal activities there are so many wonderful things to do and places
to visit that it is impossible to list them all, but there are pottery's to potter in, chocolate factories to...well,...
eat chocolate in !, farms where you can feed and touch the animals, light-houses you can climb up, life- boats to explore, sheltered gardens to discover.......There are go-karts to whizz around on, the coast to view from an aeroplane, take a flying lesson, enjoy a round of golf, or have a family day at the fantastic theme park...
A FREE TOURIST JOURNAL is readily available in all shops, petrol stations restaurants etc. and will provide ALL the information that you can possibly require to make the most of your stay. READ IT WHEN YOU FIRST ARRIVE !!!!
Our visitors book will also offer many suggestions and useful comments.
We had a lovely stay at George House and would not hesitate to return or recommend to our friends and family. To summarise the best points....
The location cannot be beat, especially with kids. When you are in the cottage/garden you think you are miles from anywhere with a view to die for despite being on the main road and two houses down from a pub (neither of which we heard). A ten minute walk down a lovely path takes you to multiple pubs/restaurants, harbour with its lovely beach when the tide is out, costal path etc. Our children (youngest 4 years old) loved walking the path to and from town so we were able to have lovely early dinners out just a short stroll away. And when we were too lazy to venture to beaches further away, we took a picnic lunch and had a lovely time on the local tidal beach. St David's is only a 10 minute drive away and had anything you could need not found in Solva.
The cottage is very well equipped...everything needed to cook in the kitchen, laundry room, hairdryer, garden games, crabbing equipment etc. Did not miss anything.
Within minutes of sending my initial enquiry Patricia was on the phone from Europe to Dubai. Very prompt with any questions and couldn't have been easier to deal with.
The view is absolutely stunning and the garden such a wonderful place to relax.
What a truly delightful cottage! So well equipped and welcoming. The garden was just lovely with the most stunning views. All this plus first class service from the owner who is simply charming. We will definitely be back.
Gorgeous cottage in a wonderful setting! The cottage was truly a home from home and had everything there that we could possibly need. It was perfect for our family (2 adults and 3 young children) - plenty of room and a big garden with a beautiful view! Location was good. Just a very short walk from the harbour (where there are lot's of crabs to catch), cafe's and a small park. Short driving distances to nearby beaches (Pembrokeshire has the best beaches in the country!). We particularly liked Whitesands. Also visited Folly Farm which was good value for money with lot's of animals, fairground rides (had to pay separately for these) and a massive soft play area.
The Chinese takeaway, which is run from the pub a few doors down, is worth a visit. We had a lovely meal from there on our last night.
All in all, this cottage comes highly recommended. We couldn't have asked for a nicer week away!
The cottage was perfect, clean and cosy. The view was amazing, ate breakfast outside every morning. Solva was a peaceful, welcoming little area. The walks were spectacular. Really looking forward to my next visit.
Very well equipped and cosy with wonderful sea views from the house and garden. Very conveniently situated for everything Solva has to offer and we'd definitely recommend it. Although there's no parking outside the house, it was quite easy to find a place in the road opposite.
my family & i all agree that George House is a wonderful home from home holiday property .
year after year we have enjoyed holiday in this beautiful part of the country.
as aholiday property,George House excels with spectacular views & a large garden .it is a perfect spot to while away the houres each day & a wonderful base to explore the area.
Solva is a tiny unspoilt village grown around a tidal inlet in the Pembrokeshire National Park. The lower part is bustling with, restaurants, pubs, shops, galleries..the upper part has a pub, general store, post office and church. The harbour offers safe bathing, rock pools, fishing trips and sailing tuition, where children spend
hours fishing for crabs. 6 kms away is the cathedral and city of St.David's hosting religious & cultural events. An excellent Adventure Centre caters for ALL levels, (nearby is a world famous whitewater canoe playground). In St.David's you can book boat trips very fast & exciting or slow and leisurely to observe seals, dolphins, puffins, gannets, shear waters... Pembrokeshire has one of the highest sunshine records, & more Blue Flag beaches than in any other county in Britain, & is a surfing paradise, you will be spoilt for choice. A bus service allows you to walk along the coast & return by bus. Pembrokeshire is magical all year, try May & June...
