Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The cottage is located in Upper Solva village in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and has wonderful sea-views from the bedrooms and the lounge. Walkers will relish the easy direct access from the house to the coastal path and families will enjoy the many fine, safe, sandy beaches nearby. The cottage was included in the 2009 Sunday Times Travel Section - 50 Cool Cottages in the UK - with the comments "families seeking a home from home will love this gracious 1820s villa, plumly located among the confetti coloured cottagesof Solva with its harbour, delis and cafes".
The cottage is comfortably furnished in a traditional style to a high standard and the back door opens onto a narrow lane to access your pretty enclosed island garden.
The charming cathedral city of St Davids is only minutes away by car and the picturesque harbour of Solva is only a short, traffic free walk away through the woods. The harbour is always busy with fishing boats and yachts moving in and out of the dog-legged Solva Inlet. Local skippers offer boat trips out to the beautiful nearby islands -either for fishing or simply to enjoy the bird and sea-life around the coast.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Solva is a pretty coastal village located in the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park which was the first designated coastal National Park in the UK and the reasons why will soon become apparent to you when you see for the first time the many spectacular sandy beaches often framed by cliffs with the coast path hugging their jagged contours.
This area is ideal for families with young children who can play safely on the beautiful sandy beaches and for the more energetic there is easy access to the many miles of exhilarating coastal paths providing walkers with wonderful sea views across St Brides Bay and the many islands beyond. One of the main national cycle routes (Route 4) passes close by Solva and for the cycling enthusiast (or families cycling together) the quiet country lanes of North Pembrokeshire provide a virtually traffic free environment to explore the beautiful countryside.
Tthe historic city of St David's with its its splendid cathedral and Bishop's Palace is only a few miles away from Solva and is a cosy, comfortable place to explore with art galleries, restaurants and craft shops together with a fine dehli and several coffee shops.
There are boat trips from both Solva and St Davids visiting Ramsay Island to observe the wild sea-life or simply to enjoy a beautiful evening cruise along the coast - further afield it is possible to take a short sea-trip to see puffins on the small Island of Skomer.
