The property has obviously had a lot of time, love and money spend on it and it shows, we all thought it was one of the better properties we have stayed in. Whilst the garden is a bit of a climb up several stairs the terraced garden at the top is a fantastic place to eat and chill. It is well placed for Lower Solva and everything is within a short walk, there's even a path atthe back of the afore mentioned raised garden.As others have alluded to the Aga is the only thing that we found a challenge. We researched using one before we went away but when you've just crashed in from a long day out you then have to wait for it to warm up, it warms up the kitchen/ diner and takes a while to cool down and we were there during a heat wave. One notable was doing bacon on the hot plates, usually five minutes or so it was taking around 15 minutes .

Great location and beautifully presented. Clean and comfortable. The cooking facilities were a bit off a challenge if you have no experience of using an Aga type range. It also made the house very hot as we had exceptionally good weather. We used their alternative small plug in oven and hob but it is small fir family meals. A good excuse to eat out more.

As a group of 5 adults we found the cottage suited our needs very well. It was very clean and well furnished and we appreciated the biscuits/drink we found on arrival. The one criticism we would make concerned the heating. It proved impossible to lower the thermostat so the temperature felt uncomfortable at times especially as one of our party has thyroid issues. I would add ( & these are suggestions rather than criticisms) whilst we adapted to cooking with the Aga well a couple of trivets would be useful. Also we found the doors from the lounge to the garden difficult to use at times. We found that the step in the back passage leading to the garage was difficult to see due to the reflection of the tiles- could some reflective tape be put on the step itself? However, we did enjoy our time in the cottage, many thanks.

From the owner:- We’re sorry to learn of your difficulties with the heating, you had successfully turned the heating off in all of the rooms but No 7 Lower Solva is a very warm cottage. Thank you for your suggestions, all of which have now been implemented. We’re pleased you enjoyed your stay, thanks again.

An Oasis during ‘strange times'There's no doubt we loved staying in this impressive cottage, we can see the effort that went into completing the re-build, particularly the garden terrace. Also love Solva itself and enjoyed wonderful walks and runs east of west of here.We'd definitely love to come back.

We have been lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic week in this Cottage which has acted as a perfect base for our coastal path walking. Perfect weather and the cottage is very comfortable and relaxing. The garden and views an added bonus.

The Lewis Family
31st May 2019

We have had a lovely stay in this cottage. It's so well equipped and in a fantastic location. We all enjoyed walks on Newgale, bodyboarding on Whitesands and cake and coffee at Melin Tregwynt Mill. See you again soon. Thank you.

We've had a wonderful week in No. 7 Lower Solva. It is the most comfortable cottage that we have ever stayed in. The garden was a surprise bonus too. Our two teenagers had a great time here. We are just sorry that we can only stay for one week. Solva is one of our favourite places - so we had a ball here & made friends with the alpacas up the road. We'll be back.

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

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. Guidebooks 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 around 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.

Family Fun

  • Travel all over Pembrokeshire to discover a diverse range of quality family attractions including; Oakwood Theme Park, Dinosaur Park Tenby, Hangar 5 Trampoline Park, West Wales Karting, The Wickedly Welsh Chocolate Company, Folly Farm, Blue Lagoon Water Park, Manor Wildlife Park, Dr Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen just to mention a few.
