Why we recommend Fisherman's Cottage...

Fisherman's Cottage, in the pretty coastal village of Solva, yards from harbour, shops and pubs, dog friendly, cosy and traditional with plenty of space for all the family.

About Fisherman's Cottage
A welcoming and stylish fisherman's cottage for holidays in Solva. Family and dog friendly and perfectly situated with all that you need on your doorstep. 
  • If you're looking for a traditional Pembrokeshire cottage in a picture-perfect village, look no further than pretty Fisherman’s Cottage. This traditional cottage is tucked away in a quiet lane above Solva’s lovely harbour and just a few yards from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. (The lane was the central street in the recent film of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood). 
  • This Solva cottage (known locally as Llys Meinor) is warm and welcoming and is perfect for couples and families alike.  The style is comfortable and relaxed with a wood burning stove in the sitting room and a view looking out past the cottages towards St Bride’s Bay.
  • With three comfortable bedrooms reached by the original windy staircase, the cottage offers hidden depths in a modern en-suite shower room and dressing room attached to the master bedroom. Two of the bedrooms enjoy glimpses of the bay.
  • Downstairs the snug dining room also has a log burning stove and archway to a well-equipped contemporary galley kitchen.
  • The cottage has an old-world atmosphere complemented by a modern extension which houses the family bathroom, utility room and a family room with patio doors to the enclosed cottage garden.
About The Area
Solva Harbour and Fishing Village
  • Solva is a quaint picturesque harbour village with a small beach and lots to enjoy. The harbour, a safe haven for boats (and a fine example of a 'Ria' - a melt-water channel from the ice age), 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 - which may explain why at one time there were said to be 30 pubs in the village!
  • The harbour can be reached on foot from the cottage via various footpaths, some with stiles.
  • The modern village has independent small shops and galleries and a selection of pubs, restaurants and places to eat.  Window on Wales is a well-stocked gift and clothes shop which draws customers from across the County – well worth a visit!
  • The harbour is full of boats and other water craft.  Play on the little beach, fish for crabs from the harbour wall at high tide or at low tide rock-pool and paddle on the beach or walk round to Gwadn (the next bay).
  • At the top of the village there is a well-stocked general store which will provide for your everyday needs as well as fresh local crab for your sandwiches - all offered with a cheery reception!
  • And at the end of the day enjoy tea and home-made cakes – or perhaps their famous fish and chips - in No 35, the café by the river.
Solva Woollen Mill 
  • Solva Woollen Mill in the valley is a working water mill, one of only 2 left in Pembrokeshire, and produces fine woollen goods which are for sale in its gift shop and offers delightful refreshments in its tea room!
Pembrokeshire Coastal Path 
  • The St Davids Peninsula is bordered by the Pembrokeshire Coast Path –now part of the All Wales Path.  From the lane outside the cottage you can walk straight onto the path in either direction from where, just on your doorstep, spring flowers, seabirds, seals and unbounded wildlife present an unexpected treasure for the uninitiated.
Local beaches – Newgale, Whitesands & Abereiddy Beaches 
  • Whitesands Bay, one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast, is a wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach with lifeguard cover in the summer and surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach - popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts. From the car park you can walk out on the coast path towards the rocky headland  which is St Davids Head. 
  • Three miles to the east of Solva is the magnificent three mile sandy beach at Newgale. Wonderful for surfing, you can take your dog on (at least parts of) the beach at all times of year and two lifeguard stations are provided for safe bathing.
  • Abereiddi is a popular, family friendly, west facing, sand and pebble beach with low rocks and cliffs.
The City of St Davids
  • Although St Davids has the status of a city it is in reality a small village. Useful as a source of groceries - there is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers, greengrocers, as well as a post office, ice cream and chocolate shop and two banks, there are also galleries and shops - clothes, gifts and outdoor gear. Come and browse or buy - it is a delightful place to while away your holiday!
  • Don't miss the outdoor farmers' market on the Cross Square on Thursdays throughout the summer - all sorts of local produce and tasty morsels.
St Davids Cathedral and the Bishops' Palace
  • Tucked away in the valley below the town is St Davids' wonderful medieval Cathedral - take time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place.  Dating back to 1181, the Cathedral is both a church and a historic building. Guide books and volunteer stewards are at hand to help you understand some of its differing fortunes across the centuries. Perhaps have coffee or a meal in the remarkable refectory - a modern insert in the 14th century St Mary's Hall.
  • Across the tiny river Alun is the ruined Bishops' Palace with its lovely decorated stonework, wheel window, halls and stairways. Restored sufficiently to fire the imagination of young and old, let your children play while they absorb the atmosphere of this site of medieval power and influence.
Boat Trips to the Bird Islands
  • Visit one of the boat booking offices in St Davids and book your place on a memorable boat trip from St Justinians out to Ramsey Island or the amazing bird island of Grassholm.
  • Try Falcon Boats with a trip to look for porpoise and dolphins or a fast exciting boat trip round Ramsey Island. Perhaps if this is too speedy for you, try a more sedate one - either is sure to be a wonderful experience with fabulous coastal scenery, marine and bird life to enjoy.
TYF Adventure Day
  • Do something a little different and get the adrenaline flowing on an adventure day out. Kayaking, surfing, climbing, coasteering. Take a step into the unknown with the experienced guides at TYF (the booking shop is in the heart of St. Davids). But best of all do it in the beautiful and rugged surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast.
St Davids and Priskilly Golf Clubs
  • Just five miles from the cottage is the 9 hole course at St Davids. Try a round on this lovely course above Whitesands beach – the scenery is breath-taking. 
  • Located at Castlemorris, Priskilly is a challenging 9 hole course is set in mature parkland with panoramic rural views. 
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.
Nolton Haven Beach & Riding Stables
  • The tiny waterside village of Nolton with a beautiful sandy cove and East Nolton Riding Stables who will take you on an exhilarating gallop across the beach or a gentle trek through the Pembrokeshire countryside.

Why you love Fisherman's Cottage
The cottage is very well equipped and we were comfortable and warm. Lots of lovely features. We had mainly good weather but the location and scenery are so magnificent we enjoyed the bad and dramatic weather too. We all feel really relaxed and left the cares of the world behind. We enjoyed the beautiful beaches of Whitesands and Newgale and found Brawdy where our father was stationed in 1955. We loved St Davids and Tenby and Narberth was a shoppers dream - spent too much! In Tenby the food at the Qube was wonderful. Didn't make it to the Cwtch in St Davids - perhaps next time. In Solva we enjoyed the Cambrian. Thank you for the wine and welcome message which was a really nice touch.Thank you. (September 2017)
J, C & L
What a lovely cottage to stay in whilst exploring this lovely part of Wales. Thank you so much for allowing us just the long weekend for hubby's 60th! We all had a super time and cannot praise your homely cottage enough for the "home comforts" and so tastefully decorated. We enjoyed two meals each in the Cambrian and the Bishops - both hugely recommended. Shall be recommending to friends who want a "get away" from it all break. And thank you for the wine - a lovely touch! (September 2017)
D,A & Friends
Fabulous cottage - one of the most comfortable and well-equipped we have stayed in. Fantastically located too! We have enjoyed coastal walks, wonderful beaches, fishing and crazy golf!! Bishops pub in St Davids' food fab, as is fish & chips there too! The whole family and dogs have loved it. Wish we could stay longer but we will be back!!. Thank you. (August 2017)
C-G
Excellent cottage - everything we needed. Solva always lovely and very much enjoy the coastal walks to St Davids and Newgale etc. Very tasty fish and chips in The Shed at Porth Gain. Thank you for the wine, much appreciated. (October 2017)
R, B, R & K
A lovely well-equipped, furnished cottage. Lovely spot for walks, handy for St Davids. Sat out storm Ophelia, spectacular waves. Recommend The Shed, Porth Gain, also the Sloop Inn. Had a fantastic meal at Cwtch, St Davids, book early doors - reduced price. Thank you for letting our dog Monty stay, he loved it. (October 2017)
K, A & Monty
Had a great time here. The cottage is home from home - everything you need is here, along with great views. Haven't used the car at all. Walked everywhere from the cottage. Two great longer walks to St Davids (step into St Non's Chapel - delightful) and to Newgale. Blessed withh fab weather and one day walked in T-shirts. Is it really November?!! Local shop open 7-7 and good stock of everything. Thank you for a lovely stay. (November 2017)
D & F
The perfect spot for a week's walking in beautiful Pembrokeshire! Certainly the most comfortable and well-equipped cottage we have stayed in. And we were very lucky with the weather too! (October 2017)
O & S
Thank you for another lovely stay. It's so relaxing and welcoming. We will be back. (October 2017)
D, G & B
Don't really want to praise our stay too much in case we can't come again because it's full!! What a perfect spot to decompress from busy lives. We loved waking up and being able to see what weather the day would bring from our window over the sea. Well-appointed house with every little detail catered for - we cooked a few nights because the kitchen was home from home. Cleanliness fab and the bottle of wine our first evening was very welcome indeed! We were blessed by two weeks of amazing weather so much walking and swimming done. Bliss. Thank you. (July 2017)
L, G & C W
First time in Pembrokeshire, plenty of good walks, scenery is breathtaking. We loved the cottage, thank you for the wine. PS. We had some good meals out. Pub in Solva car park: good food. The Cwtch, St Davids, good food, expensive. On the last night we popped into The Bishops, St Davids, simple menu, most probably best meal. (June 2017)
H&R
Fabulously comfortable cottage with everything provided to make ones stay memorable. Outstanding location, great walks, brilliant weather and charming local folk. Magic part of the world to explore the breathtaking Pembrokeshire area. (May 2017)
The Whelehan's
We've had a really lovely stay - a comfortable cottage with everything you need. A super base for exploring Pembrokeshire. The trip to Skomer Island was a real highlight. We'll miss our long walks and the sunny weather! Just be careful of the low doorways - some very nasty bumps!! (April 2017)
The Poole Family
Great meal at The Cambrian for New Year's Eve. Fish and chips after a walk at Cafe 35 in Solva was also welcome. Fantastic weather throughout - seemed to only rain at night. Walked every day - beautiful in both directions from the cottage and hardly saw anyone. Lots of lovely locations for picnic lunches. Lovely that we didn't need to get in the car for the whole time we were here. Cottage was very comfortable and cosy, even for five of us and it was great to have the wood burner on at night and just sit and read or plan the following day's walk. Will definitely return in the future. (Dec 2016/Jan 2017)
J,S,H,L & J
What a wonderful cottage, felt like home right away and don't want to leave. Weather has been very kind to us too, lots of long walks with the dog, crabbing and visiting old haunts and old friends who we grew up with. We will definitely be back! (April 2017)
The Evans Family
Llys Meinor is far bigger inside than the exterior ever suggests, and this delightful cottage combines old world charm with every modern comfort one might want. Nestled down a village lane there is no disturbance from traffic or noise and the peace is complete. As well as from the front door, a view of the sea coast can also be had from two bedrooms which we thought is a lovely novelty to wake to for the normally landlocked. A variety of coastal paths can be reached within minutes walking from the front door, and elsewhere along this stretch of beautiful coastline. There is a fine sandy beach at Whitesands with often excellent surfing and our recent morning experiences of this was shared with some friendly seals! Eating out, we had some quality dining at recently opened St David's Kitchen (in St David's) and there is some good pub food to be had in Solva itself, this time we tried The Ship which is newly under a change of management. In summary, if you want to escape the worst elements of the 21st century (but retain the best bits) - then come here! We can't wait to return. (October 2016)
Richard & Sue
We have enjoyed a lovely week with perfect weather exploring the coastal path. The day trip to Skomer was very special, and a foraging walk was fun and interesting. We allso managed some sunbathing on the beautiful beaches and a wander around St Davids. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. Thank you for the welcome wine! (June 2017)
R+I
A super week - despite less than Springlike weather! Excellent art workshop, followed by cliff walks, visits to St Davids, Narberth and the Presellis. Such a beautiful area with its dramatic coast. Our 8th holiday in Pembrokeshire and Llys Meinor has been a delight to stay in - easy walk to harbour, coast path and a bonus - views across the bay. Everything we could wish for in a holiday house...(March 2017)
H&JW, Buckinghamshire
A very comfortable well-equipped and well-located cottage - just what we'd hoped for! We've had a lovely, relaxing time and it's been a great week weather-wise. We have loved your house - could quite happily stay here (for ever)! Thank you for the wine. (February 2017)
W&J
We found the cottage charming and comfortable - but beware low doorways - a couple of nasty bumps inflicted! Cwtch in St Davids was a lovely place for Sunday lunch, and a trip out to The Shed at Porthgain is well worth it for the freshest fish imaginable. Lots of cycling and walking done. A perfect relaxing break. (December 2016)
