This was our second time to this beautiful cottage and, like the last time, it was wonderful! The view from the lounge was especially stunning.

We were all bowled over the minute we arrived here! What an amazing house & fantastic location. A place where we have all been able to relax & be refreshed from the youngest, aged 2, to the oldest, aged 71. Our week has been brilliant with good weather adding a real bonus to all the other positives. Ty'r Tonnau is such a wonderful haven. Thank you

We have rented holiday homes in the UK and Europe for more 20 yrs and this has to be the best we've ever stayed in. The house is beautiful with stunning views and so light and spacious. It's extremely comfortable, quiet & so well equipped we could find nothing lacking. We'll be back!

Property Description
Spectacular coastal seascape, a luxurious coastal home on St Davids Peninsula
  • This is a very special coastal holiday home and at its heart is a first floor sitting room with a glass gable end. Patio doors open onto a glass balustrade balcony overlooking the spectacular seascape.
  • Sun filled airy rooms, high ceilings, tiled floors and a lovely sweeping staircase with glass balustrade gallery, smartly and tastefully furnished in a minimalist style and extremely well equipped to the very highest residential standards.
Luxurious coastal holiday home on Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
  • Walk directly onto the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path (mostly National Trust) or relax in the secluded part walled garden - the sheltered patio, furnished with large dining table, umbrella and chairs, is just perfect for al fresco dining.
About the Area
  • Solva, a picturesque harbour village with quaint colour-washed cottages, is set in a narrow, wooded valley. Once a trading port and the haunt of smugglers there are interesting small craft/art galleries and shops, several pubs, good restaurants, a sandy harbour at low tide and mooring for yachts. The excellent village shop, post office and off licence, Bayview Stores, sells groceries, angling supplies, papers and offers a delivery service within the Solva area.
  • The harbour is busy with small boats and other water craft. Both adults and children enjoy crabbing from the quay or rock pooling.
  • At low tide you can walk your dog on the beach round to Gwadn Cove. 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.  
Solva Woollen Mill
  • A mile up the valley from the village is the hamlet of Middle Mill.  Here the Solva Woollen Mill, the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire, has been producing beautiful traditional fabrics since 1907. Suppliers of bespoke floor rugs to the Price of Wales for his Welsh home, this is certainly a mill to visit.

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.

St Davids village/city

  • St Davids is the smallest city in Britain. At the centre of the peninsula, the city is surrounded by sea which can 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 booking offices for adventure activities.
  • The village is well supplied with a chemist, ironmongers, supermarket, shoe shop, doctors, veterinary surgeries and a filling station.
John Rogers Artist, St Davids
  • Do visit The Gallery at Peter's Lane in St Davids to see the work of John Rogers a fine exponent of representative art especially of nature, wilderness, vernacular architecture, language and work.
More Art, St Davids
  • Art lovers may also like to visit Oriel y Parc to see a permanent exhibition of Graham Sutherland's work.  Nearby is the award winning Twr y Felin Hotel in which over 100 pieces of specially commissioned art adorns the walls.

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.
John Rogers Gallery St Davids
  • John Rogers, a fine exponent of representative art, penmanship and draughtsmanship has captured the authentic style of the vernacular architecture of local farms, cottages and villages of Pembrokeshire for almost 50 years. Art lovers might also like to visit the galleries in Oriel y Parc visitor centre and the prestigious art hotel Twr y Felyn, both in St Davids.

Boat Trips to Ramsey Island and Grassholm

  • Visit a booking office in St Davids and book your place on a memorable boat trip from St Justinians out to Ramsey Island or further afield to see the enormous gannet colony on Grassholm.
  • Take an exciting island boat trip with Falcon Boats or a perhaps more sedate one - either is sure to be a wonderful experience with fabulous coastal scenery, marine and bird life to enjoy.

National Trust Gwaden Cove & Porth y Rhaw near luxurious holiday accommodation
  • A footpath from Solva quayside over Gribin Headland has fantastic coastal views and leads to pretty Gwadan Cove (NT)
  • Porth y Rhaw (NT) is a pretty little cove with car park close to luxurious Ty'r Tonnau coastal holiday home. Take a look at the iron age cliff fort remains on your way to the cove. It can be found a few hundred metres along the left hand path from the gate by the stream.

Outdoor activities on the St Davids Peninsula 

  • If experiencing the great outdoors is your plan, the St Davids Peninsula is the right destination.  Water sports of all sorts are on offer - try Preseli Venture, Unsunghero or the original Activity Centre in St Davids, Twr y Felin.  Going south there is Newsurf at Newgale or Haven Water sports in Broad Haven.  Learn to surf, climb, windsurf, canoe or coasteer – there are well qualified instructors for all levels of proficiency.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path near luxurious holiday home
  • The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path stretches for 180 glorious miles from Amroth in the south to Poppit Sands in the north. Walk as little or as much as you like. Hail one of the dedicated walkers busses to return you to your starting point.
Nolton Haven & East Nolton Riding Stables
  • Nolton Haven is a tiny village with a sandy beach, a 200 year old chapel clinging nail bitingly close to the edge of the cliff, a village pub serving bar food and East Nolton Riding Stables who will take you on a thrilling gallop across the beach or trekking in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside.

Picton Castle 

  • Set in 40 acres of magnificent woodland and with walled gardens, water features, huge willow sculptures and a children’s activity trail.  There are guided tours and special events, family fun days and outdoor theatre, garden tours and musical evenings.  Or you can just enjoy the surroundings while you browse the gift shop or take a delicious lunch in the castle’s splendid café.

Family days out

  • Away from the appeal of the coastline, Pembrokeshire is well-supplied with holiday attractions to appeal to the family. Dr Beynon's Bug Farm, Zorbing Downhill Revolution, Oakwood Theme Park, Bluestone Water 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.

Pembrokeshire Coast & Preseli Hills
  • Lots to see and do - wonderful beaches for swimming, surfing, kite flying, coasteering, kayaking, bird islands to visit, exhilarating boat trips and sailing to enjoy, fishing, horse riding, bird watching, seal, dolphin and whale spotting, walking the Coastal Path or roaming the beautiful wild moorland of the Preseli Hills - all near to this luxurious coastal holiday accommodation.
