“Great location and space”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2011

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”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

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!
