About Cleavers Edge
Colourful modern house with fabulous sea views in Harbour village of Solva
  • This is a colourful, modern home in the pretty Pembrokeshire village of Solva with fantastic views of Solva harbour and St Brides Bay.
  • The living accommodation is on the upper floor. The open-plan sitting rooms lead onto a wide balcony with views across the bay towards Skomer Island and Jack Sound - giving a wonderful feeling of light and space.
  • Downstairs the comfortable modern bedrooms all have views towards the sea - the clean modern lines of this warm house make it a pleasure to be in.
  • Visit with your family or friends - there is ample space to play together or separately. Or, with the shower room and a double bedroom on the upper floor, a couple can happily enjoy the house as a spacious apartment for two.
  • The artwork and fabrics throughout are bright and vibrant and give an international flavour which reflects the wide interests of the owners.
  • There is a small flat on the lower floor of this delightful upside down house which the owners visit occasionally.







About The Area

Solva Harbour and Fishing Village

  • Solva is a quaint picturesque harbour village with a selection of pubs, restaurants and places to eat and, in the lower village, interesting small shops and galleries. 
  • In the upper village is a well-stocked village shop for everyday provisions (and local humour!).
  • The harbour is busy with small boats and other water craft and with adults and children enjoying the quay, crabbing or rock pooling, using their boats or fixing them on the hard.
  • At low tide you can walk your dog on the beach round to the Gwadn or at high tide climb the Gribyn (the hill at the side of the harbour) and walk out to the headland.
  • And at the end of the day enjoy tea and home-made cakes on the quay or perhaps the famous fish and chips at No 35, the café by the river.  Welcome pets

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • To make the best of the Pembrokeshire coastline take time to enjoy the Coastal Path.  Join the path - just a short walk from the cottage – and go west towards Caerfai and Porth Clais or east towards Pointz Castle and Newgale. 
  • The dramatic coastal scenery, flower and wildlife are what make Pembrokeshire one of the world’s best holiday destinations (National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire the 2nd best coastal destination in the world!). Splendid at all times of year, in the spring the path is decorated with an explosion of colour!

Coastal Shuttle Busses

  • If you would like to leave your car behind, jump onto the local coastal bus service - and travel up or down the coast. You can leave and join the bus at will and services run the length of the coastal path.

Solva Woollen Mill

  • A mile up the valley from the lower village, in the hamlet of Middle Mill, is the Solva Woollen mill - the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire. The mill has been producing beautiful traditional fabrics since 1907 and has supplied bespoke floor rugs to the Price of Wales for his Welsh home - certainly a mill to visit.

The City of St Davids

  • St Davids is Britain’s smallest city – In fact only the size of a small village.  On the centre of the peninsula, it is surrounded by sea – to be seen in the distance when you stand at the top of the square.  There is a variety of gift and clothes shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs as well as activity booking offices. 
  • It is also well supplied with a chemist, ironmongers, supermarket, shoe shop, doctors and veterinary surgeries and a filling station.

St Davids Cathedral and Bishops’ palace

  • At the heart of the ‘city’ is St Davids’s lovely 12th century Cathedral.  Deep in the valley where it aimed, sometimes unsuccessfully, to evade marauding Vikings, the Cathedral is a place of calm, a wonderful historic building, a centre for concerts, a place of welcome for the footsore and of course a parish church.  Be sure to visit – in such a small remote town, it is a wonder to behold!
  • Just across the little river Alun is the 13th Century Bishops’ Palace – originally splendid, it is now a well-maintained ruin, left to fall down by a departing bishop who was said to have taken the lead off the roof to pay for his daughter’s dowry! Now a ruin to delight the heart of visiting children and adults alike with some lovely restored windows and decorative masonry.

Boat Trips to Ramsey Island and beyond

  • A visit to the St Davids Peninsula is not complete without a boat trip out to Ramsey Island and experiencing the coast from the water. 
  • Book your tickets at any one of the booking offices in St Davids; there are fast exciting, RIB boat trips which will take you round Ramsey Island and further out to sea to look for dolphins or whales, or more sedate conventional boats which go round the island or over to land - either is sure to be a wonderful experience with fabulous coastal scenery, marine and bird life to enjoy.

 Outdoor Activities – water based, horse riding and golf

  • For outdoor enthusiasts the whole peninsula offers a huge range of activities - climbing, surfing, coasteering and walking. For guided activities ask at TYF on the square in St Davids or Preseli Venture in Mathry.
  • The larger swimming beaches – Whitesands and Newgale – are supervised by Lifeguards during the summer months and equipment and lessons are on offer.
  • Further round St Bride’s Bay, in the tiny waterside village of Nolton, East Nolton Riding Stables will take you on an exhilarating gallop across Druidstone beach or a gentle trek through the Pembrokeshire countyside.
  • If golf is your sport the nearest courses are at St Davids, Priskilly (near Mathry) or Haverfordwest. There is something to suit all abilities!

Family days out in Pembrokeshire

  • Away from the appeal of the coastline, Pembrokeshire is well-supplied with holiday attractions to delight the family. Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm, Manor Wildlife Park and Scolton Manor Museum are but a few. There is plenty to choose from to suit interests of all sorts.

Tenby South Pembrokeshire

  • Lots to see and do in Tenby at any time of the year - elegant boutiques, craft shops, museums and art galleries to browse, a large variety of eating places, pubs and ice cream parlours to tempt, boat trips, fishing, sailing, wind and kite surfing, spectacular cliff top walks and Blue Flag beaches to enjoy.
