"The Annexe" forms part of a large family house right at the top of Solva village. It's atmosphere is compact and tasteful, providing the visitor with all the comforts of home in lovely surroundings. The main part of the house enjoys views out over St Brides Bay but this is not quite visible from "The Annexe" windows. The village with shops and post office is 5 minutes walk away down a fairly steep road. The Harbour and quay are within easy walking distance
The accommodation is on the ground floor and would be suitable for the elderly or someone who is slightly disabled - with one small step over the threshold. However there are five steps up from the parking area with no hand rail. It is possible to bypass the steps and access The Annexe front door via a level lawned area. For those wanting a base from which to explore the incomparable National Trust coastal path, look no further!
|Further details outdoors|
The entrance is secluded with a patio area complete with garden seating and flowering tubs. Off road parking is immediately outside the entrance to 'The Annexe'.

"great place as a base to see the lovely Pembrokeshire coast"
We found The Annexe to be a lovely place for a couple wanting a self catering holiday in Solva, which itself is a picturesque coastal village. The Annexe is a very spacious, tastefully decorated and p… More
Very happy that your holiday here was such a success. You were certainly very lucky with the fantastic weather. I have taken on board the idea to paint the wooden patio table but I don't think I will paint the lovely solid oak bench. But thanks for the suggestion - always welcome:)

Thankyou for the nice review. We have now added some new kitchen equipment and replaced a couple of saucepans. We like to keep things up to scratch, so thanks for alerting us to the shortfall.

Thanks for the very complimentary review of our Pen Y Banc B&B business. However 'The Annexe'is our self-caterered accommodation. I will try to get the B&B business registered with Trip Advisor, so that guests can leave reviews for either type of accommodation. Keep the reviews coming:)

"Great location and space"
Lovely welcome from Penny, idyllic setting near the Pembrokeshire coastal path and a short walk from the nearby pubs and shops of Solva. Useful information in the appartment containing maps, restaurant reviews and places to visit. Kitchen was adequately stcoked with utensils although if you plan on cooking a lot you might want to bring some of your own just in case. Tv didn't have the best reception but you'll probably not spend that long in the flat. Overall very happy.
Great to hear from all our happy guests:)

"Friendly, great views, comfortable room, hearty breakfast"
We stayed 3 nights at Pen Y Banc whilst walking the coast path, visiting galleries and attending the St Davids International Music Festival. The Williams's gave us a warm welcome. Our room was comfortable, with lovely views out to sea and the islands of Skomer and Skokkolm. There was a window seat, so you could idle the time away watching the light on the water. Breakfasts were perfect, with choice of cereals, meusli and fruit, followed by cooked options, featuring eggs freshly-laid by the hens that pottered in the garden.
This review refers to our Bed and Breakfast accommodation. We also have self-catered accommodation called 'The Annexe'. Really glad you had a good time. Pass the word and come again!
