Attractive, roomy, clean, comfortable and well stocked with cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils etc. Great location - quiet and scenic, yet close to Solva's pretty centre. Pleasant garden, too.

Lovely cottage, immaculately presented and stocked with everything one could possibly need. Beautiful, tranquil garden. Perfect location for walking.

We have had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful cottage. Very comfortable and cosy. The beds are so comfortable. We hope to be back next year God willing. Thanks for being so kind, we will recommend the cottage to our friends.

Beautiful cottage. Very well equipped, cosy. Brilliant week walking, eating, climbing, chilling. Food in the Cambrian is excellent. Watched the fox come up the lane and walk on the roof of the house opposite. Lovely lively week.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage. It is wonderfully equipped- we wanted for nothing and enjoyed the location for walking and crabbing with the children. We found the cottage clean and very comfortable. Our first visit to Solva and we would certainly like to return a real 'treasure'.

We've had a great week in Thimble End, it's worked perfectly for our two family groups and we've found it brilliantly equipped. The space has been fantastic, being able to use the garage for extra storage on wet days was invaluable & the garden is lovely. We'll be back!! Thank you.

We've had a lovely week in pretty Solva and the coastal paths and the children have loved the play area down by the harbour. We will definitely be back to Thimble End.

A fabulous Easter week in Solva. Storm Katie created new challenges for our coastal walk to Newgale. In contrast, mid-week walks Porthgain to Abercastle, Porth Clais to Solva and St Justinian to Porth Clais were bathed in sunshine. Great surf for body boarding at Whitesands. Thimble End Cottage has been perfect. Thank you.

Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. Pembrokeshire and Solva have not disappointed us on our first week. We have had sunshine every day this week and it is the end of a perfect week, we have enjoyed every minute.
