About Carreg Wen

Pembrokeshire luxury holiday house in Solva overlooking St Brides Bay

Beware!

  • Carreg Wen will surely cast its spell over you. Just read the reviews.
  • 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!

We thought it was a lovely property. Very tasteful, comfortable and well equipped. Our only slight niggle was the cooker! We noticed other people had made the same comments in the visitors book. It was obviously simple to use for the owners but not for us! Maybe a laminated guide by the cooker might help. We appreciated the owner ringing us up the day after we arrived following storm Hannah to make sure we, and the property were fine. Would highly recommend the property.

Thank you for your review, Carreg Wen is a beautiful house at any time of the year, glad you enjoyed it.

One of the best cottages we have rented in the U.K. The location was perfect, and the house was both comfortable and beautiful. We were two couples traveling together and the house was designed to give each couple privacy, yet there were plenty of gathering areas. For the four of us, Carrey Wen set a new standard in cottage rentals.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your glowing review, Carreg Wen is a beautiful house ideal for couples or families alike and close enough to amenities without being in the 'thick of things'. We are delighted that it exceeded expectations.

An oasis of calm - beautifully laid out family home with views across the sea that I still think about! Wifi connectivity was a struggle for a family of 5 but can't begrudge the house that given the rural location. The walk on our first night along the coastal path from the house to Solva will remain a special memory.

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.

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!

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!

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 Cafe '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.

TYF Adventure Activity Provider

  • Try exhilarating adventures such as coasteering, rock climbing, kayaking and more all based around the magnificent coast and countryside of Pembrokeshire.

Art Galleries, St Davids

  • Britain's smallest city of St Davids probably has more than its fair share of quality Art Galleries. Whether you are searching for a special memento or a unique gift you are sure to find something special.

Boat & FishingTrips

  • Book a boat trip whilst in St Davids around the famous bird islands - either a fast adrenaline ride or a more sedate one - but an experience not to be missed - your dogs are welcome too!
  • Enjoy mackerel 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 Trampoline Park, Oakwood, Blue Lagoon, Heatherton, Folly Farm Zoo and Manor Wildlife Park are just some of the attractions for all the family to enjoy.

Enjoy luxury living in this super holiday house in the picturesque coastal village of Solva on the rugged Pembrokeshire coast.
