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.
Our last day and what a day! Trip to Stackpole Quay National Trust. Wonderful cliff top walks, fantastic beaches empty apart from dog walkers! We are hooked on Solva and the surrounding area. The cottage was all we could want for, thank you Nicola and Jim and the bottle of wine was very well received. The weather could not have been better...Dogs loved every minute of their holiday too. So many walks right on the doorstep...loved the Gribin. Hope to make this an annual holiday. (May 2018)
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)
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)
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)
We've had a lovely week in this comfortable, cosy cottage. Weather has been great too. (May 2018)
Our first visit to Pembrokeshire and it has been fantastic! Fishermans Cottage is a real home from home and we were very lucky with the weather. We could not have picked a better location. Hope to visit again soon. (May 2018)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Thank you for another lovely stay. It's so relaxing and welcoming. We will be back. (October 2017)
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)
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)
We had a really lovely week here in Solva with everything we needed. Jim and Nicola were very helpful. Enjoyed beautiful coastal walks in all weathers. Narberth, St Davids, Fishguard and Cardigan, all worth a visit. Abercastle, Porth Gain and Whitesands are beautiful. The shop down the road, Bay View Stores, is excellent, with home-made dishes and lovely pastries. Lovely next door neighbour too, very friendly and helpful. So much to see here, need more time!. Thanks for a great week and the wine! (November 2017)
Thank you for a lovely holiday in this delightful cottage in beautiful Solva. Enjoyed walks along the coastal path and the local food. Look forward to returning to the area again, hopefully soon. (February 2018)
Only intended to stay one week, but due to the dreadful weather we had to stop over!! Joy and bliss - it has been so delightful! Beautiful Solva on a snowy morning is something to behold!! The cottage is fabulous - so cosy and warm. We have spent many hours watching the birds from our snow swept windows. All of us (including the dog!) have had a wonderful time. (February 2018)
Our first visit to Pembrokeshire and we loved it. Stunning scenery and blessed with better than expected weather - apart from 'wild Wednesday'. Actually had breakfast outside and lunch on one day. We have self catered for over 40 years and can truly say this has been one of the best. Everything was here which we needed, much better equipped than our own kitchen!! Had mainly lunches out. Porthgain: The Shed excellent, Sloop kitchen closed for refurb. Coffee and cake at the Cornerhouse Cafe, Little Haven and super lunch also at Little Haven at The Swan. Loved Tenby and fab walk on beach, came across South Beach cafe: excellent. Staff at Bay View Stores (in Solva) so friendly, also had couple of their home cooked meals. Thank you so much Jim and Nicola for everything, plus the wine! (March 2018)
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in your lovely cottage - we wish it was ours! We have walked about 30 miles of coast path - in all weathers, it is one of our favourite places. We have eaten well in the Harbour Inn, Ship and the Cambrian. Enjoyed a few nights in too in front of the fire. Thanks for the wine and for a great week. (March 2018)
Lovely cottage perfect location everything you needed. Few cleaning issues, get the impresses the cleaners had left before completing the job.

From the Owners:- "Having asked Quality Cottages to investigate for us, it is apparent that the bath had not been properly cleaned and that some newly cleaned laundry had been left where it shoudn't have been. This is obviously unacceptable and we have taken steps to ensure it doesn't happen again. We understand that these were the only areas of concern. Thank you for the feedback - we value it because it helps us to keep our standards at a level that we and you expect. We also leave our phone numbers in the cottage for guests to be able to call us direct in case of any issues - we would have been happy to rectify this on the spot if we had known! "
Warm, clean and extremely well equipped in almost every aspect.
Very happy with my stay. Excellent master bedroom.secluded gardens etc. Ideally located to explore Solva and surrounding area
Beautiful cottage in a stunning location, Very well equipped & presented with enclosed gardens
Great location. Very well furnished and equipped. Owner sorted one or two problems promptly
Fishermans Cottage was what I expected and so much more, a real home from home. It was bright, clean, modern and perfectly located in Upper Solva. The garden was secure so our dog was able to wander without us worrying. A short stroll away was the Coastal path or into lower Solva - so no need to get the car out everyday. I would not hesitate to recommend Fisherman's Cottage for a fabulous break in Pembrokeshire.
The price and customer service was just fine.
Fisherman's cottage was definitely the right choice for our family. The location was perfect for our first time walking in Pembrokeshire. The cottage was a haven to return to every evening to cook, relax and get a good night's sleep in! We also booked a boat trip to Ramsay island and were incredibly fortunate to see plenty of seals, a falcon and puffins!
What a beautiful little cottage, very cosy and exceptionally well presented.
