House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Southwinds is a detached bungalow in an enviable position in Upper Solva, with uninterrupted seaviews over St. Brides Bay. Tucked away along a footpath it is in a quiet position but within walking distance of the beach,local pubs and restaurants. An idea place to relax and as a base for exploring the Pembrokeshire National Park and surrounding area.
The open plan lounge/diner has a bright conservatory with views to the sea. The open fire is lovely for those cosy winter evenings. An easy walk takes you to the Pembrokeshire coastal path - which runs for 186 miles from Amroth to St Dogmaels.
There are 2 bedrooms, the kingsize with it's picture window and view over the harbour,great for long lie ins.
The pleasant twin has a garden view. There is a goodsized garden and patio where you can relax with a coffee or glass of wine and let the world go by. Being close to the beach and Solva harbour it's makes a great base for a family holiday too. There is an unfenced drop from the patio to the path so care is needed here.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
The Pembrokshire national park is a great area to explore.
No other county in Britain having more Blue flag beaches or seaside award beaches. a superb area with varied wildlife charming towns and villages along the coast and the many islands such as Skomer and Ramsey are popular destinations for local boat trips.
A great area for walking, cycling,swiming ,surfing, sailing ,coasteering and caneoing and many more.
Solva is situated on the West Wales coast 4miles from St Davids and it's mediaeval catherdral. It is an ideal place to walk being on the Pembrokeshire long distance coast path with it's ever changing seascape. There are also lots of paths through the village and surrounding area. There is a coastal bus service which operates all year round ( check times before setting out) making it possible, with some planning, to leave the car behind. The harbour is tidal and at full tide a popular passtime with the children is crab fishing - not for eating they are safely returned to the sea.
An excellent area for cycling being on the Sustrans route 4 and there are lots of quiet lanes.
Boats trips and other water activities such as coasteering and caneoing can be arranged in St Davids.
Solva has a number of excellent pubs and restaurants which are easily reached on foot from Southwinds.

"The best view in Solva"
A great visit. This area has a great deal of potential for outdoor activity, but even if there were nothing else to do - and 2 days of unremitting rain and high winds forced us to stay indoors for quite a bit, and we were in deep off season so island trips for bird and aquatic life watching were not running - one could still quite delightfully spend one's time looking out to sea from the beautiful solarium. And even lying in bed in the master bedroom, there was a magnificent view over St. Bride's Bay. The sea changes its face with every shift of cloud and sunlight, and during the storm it was awesome. Moreover we could see rabbits and birds and small wildlife particularly during the stormy days and it was fascinating.
Apart from wifi, all amenities are there and the cottage itself was clean warm and welcoming, with cosy cottage decor. There was ample light by day and well lighted at night and good linens liberally supplied. In case of need, there is Sharon the housekeeper whom you can call. There was a folder with comprehensive instructions and information and many tourism brochures for the region. There were many games for children and a selection of nice books for holiday reading, which one doesn't find in many cottage/apartment rentals. So all around a very homely feel.We had no car but there was still enough to engage one all around for a quiet holiday, a neighbourhood of great charm and quiet beauty, and lovely laid back people. The only disadvantage in this lovely setting, and only for some might it be a problem - is that the approach to the cottage by a narrow path between 2 houses, was a little difficult to locate and navigate in the dark, but once you knew - no problem. And Christine had asked me to take a torch. Moreover if the approach had been in front and road facing, one wouldn't have had access to the view!!
Also we found the external key safe where the key had been kept, a little hard to open, whether we did it wrong or it was sticking I don't know. All in all very relaxed and enjoyable

"Wonderful views and coastal scenery"
Just come back from a fantastic holiday in Solva.
The bungalow had everything we needed and was very comfortable with a huge conservatory looking out onto the coastal path and the entrance to Solva Harbour.
The king size bed was perfect and the bedroom had a big window with unspoilt views to the sea.
Solva has 4 pubs and lots of restaurants. The Post Office is a short walk away which stocks everything you may need including local caught crab,fish and lobster.
