Why we recommend Carreg Wen...

Pembrokeshire luxury holiday house in coastal village of Solva overlooking St Brides Bay

About Carreg Wen
Pembrokeshire luxury holiday house in Solva overlooking St Brides Bay
  • Wow! - what a stunning, handsome house - with absolutely fabulous panoramic coastal views across St Brides Bay to Skomer and Ramsey Islands (as far as Grassholm on a clear day!) - the fabulous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is 400 yards away.
  • Recently featured in the Times Newspaper as one of the 12 finest coastal holiday homes. 
  • This spacious luxury holiday home has been created from a former 18th century Pembrokeshire malt house, once part of Llanunwas, a 400 year old cliff top 'gentleman's estate'. Lots of original exterior features have been retained including 2 flights of stone steps, a 'goose hole' and dovecots.
  • Set down a woodland drive on the edge of Solva, Carreg Wen is very stylishly furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and modern pieces and original art work.
  • The open plan ground floor has a Welsh slate floor throughout, a luxury gallery style kitchen and a dining/sitting area with wood burning stove overlooked by a galleried landing. Opening out from the dining area is a small sun room with doors out onto the rear garden overlooking the bay - great for sun downers!

About The Area
Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
  • This is now part of the new All Wales Coastal Path, with its stunning scenery and wild life, is great for walkers and the exposed Cambrian rocks will fascinate geologists.
Solva Village, Pembrokeshire
  • Solva village with its quaint picturesque harbour and small beach has lots to enjoy - fish for crabs from the harbour at high tide or rock-pool and paddle on the beach at low tide or take a boat trip around the harbour.
  • There is an annual summer Regatta and lots of water sports - diving, kayaking and dinghy sailing, learn to row or raft build, hire a 'skiffle' boat or a 'wheelipunt', the traditional harbour dingy, from the Solva Sailing School!
  • 2 art galleries and a pottery to enjoy as well as a range of traditional shops including a post office/general stores (look out for the ever changing signs), cafes and pubs.
  • The Cambrian is a 16th century village pub serving great food, Trinity Quay along the harbour - homemade cakes and ice-cream and CafĂ© '35' by the river- great snacks and wonderful fish and chips!
  • The Ship Inn, a pet friendly cosy local pub with pleasant garden, serving good food in a warm and convivial atmosphere.
Solva Harbour near luxury holiday house Pembrokeshire
  • Solva harbour , a safe haven since the 14th century, is a fine example of a 'Ria' (a melt-water channel from the ice age) and was a major trading centre during the late 19th century - ships embarked from here to sail all over the world as well as crossing the Atlantic to America.
St Bride's Bay Water Taxi for Walkers
  • Solva Sailboats operate a water taxi which will take you to your chosen destination from where you can walk back along the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to Solva. Possible destinations include Porth Clais, Porthmynawydd, St Justinians, Nolton Haven and Little Haven (weather dependent). Phone 01437 720972.
Newgale Beach, Caerfai Bay & St Davids
  • Walk the Coastal Path east to Newgale Beach - a surfers paradise - or west to sheltered Caerfai Bay, popular with families and then onto St Davids.
St Davids & Whitesands Beach
  • A short drive takes you to St Davids with its magnificent medieval Cathedral, gift shops and art galleries and to the famous Whitesands Beach, one of Pembrokeshire's finest with its golden sands.
Boat & FishingTrips
  • Book a boat trip whilst in St Davids around the famous bird islands - either a fast adrenalin ride or a more sedate one - but an experience not to be missed - your dogs are welcome too!
  • Enjoy mackeral fishing - a lovely way to spend an hour or so drifting on the bay as well as providing beautiful freshly caught fish for supper.
Woollen Mill at Middle Mill
  • Inland snuggling amidst myriad tiny country lanes is the charming picnic spot of Middle Mill with its Tea Room/Shop and Woollen Mill which has been in production for the last century - rugs for Prince Charles' Welsh retreat at Myddfai were woven here.

Family Days Out

  • Picton Castle, Scolton Manor, Hangar 5 Trampolines, Oakwood, Blue Lagoon, Heatherton, Folly Farm Zoo and Manor House Wild Welsh Zoo are just some of the attractions for all the family to enjoy.

Why you love Carreg Wen
We loved the house & had a fabulous week, relaxing, soaking up the sun and taking in the sea air. Highlights included Stackpole, walled garden & superb beach nearby. Loved the walks to Solva and St David's. Crabbing in Solva is almost an Olympic sport! Thank you very much from us all - the house is beautifully decorated and has a lovely feel to it.
Watts family, Petersfield & Bath
Fab. Awesome. Wonderful. Than you so much for an unforgettable stay. The house was beautifully laid out and spotlessly clean. A week here was definitely NOT long enough and we all really hope to come back soon.
The Hamilton Family
We have particularly enjoyed our stay at Carreg Wen. The setting is beautiful and soothing, on sunny and rainy days alike. We love how you have restored the building and the lovely aesthetic you have brought to all parts of the interior. Everything was perfect. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise. We would love to come back!
Don & Frances Rennie, Ottawa, Canada
Surpassed all expectations - a perfect week in a perfect location. Lovely to stay in a rental property that feels like a well-loved home. I could easily move in and live here right now! Thanks for the welcoming wine, Welshcakes and fresh flowers, and the house was spotlessly clean. Hope to return one day!
Mike & Valerie, Cambridge
Lovely views and lovely house, the kids loved it too. Best holiday cottage ever!! We went crabbing and there were loads of crabs, Poppy caught about 20 and Cerys caught about 15. We loved it!
Matt, Kate, Poppy & Cerys
Thank you for the unforgettable stay! We loved every minute of our week here. The house has been built and decorated with so much care and the location is magical. We hope to return...Carreg Wen has put a spell on us.
Ernst & Danielle Barten, Netherlands
We have stayed in many cottages in Pembrokeshire, but this is truly wonderful. Carreg Wen is fabulous, stunning views. We will return!
Skudder family, Somerset
Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us. We have loved every nook and cranny and wonderful design detail. The location is wonderful and we have loved the view in both sunshine and stormy weather. Apart from the house, our highlights have been buying lobster from the boat at Solva and zorbing & pony trekking at Nolton stables.
Christina & family, Penarth
We were blessed with the kind of weather you wish to bottle so we could not fail to enjoy a week in this part of the world. However we would have enjoyed this house even if it had rained all week. It is very tasteful, practical and well equipped with an attention to detail we truly appreciated having stayed in many holiday cottages previously. Congratulations on creating a haven of luxury here.
Ross family, SW London
Our very first visit to South Wales and what an amazing time we have had - 5 stars accommodation. So cosy, so homely, so tasteful. Thank you so much Andy & Clare - will certainly recommend Carreg Wen to anybody keen to have a marvellous experience.
Hurst family, Bournemouth
Loved it. Best holiday cottage we've stayed in.
