About Skylark Cottage

This stylish modern home lies between St Davids and Solva - a spacious year round retreat.

  • This stylish modern home lies between St Davids and Solva, in the lovely peaceful hamlet of Fachelich. Skylarks have recently made this area their home, with more sightings here than anywhere else in Wales.
  • This spacious, year-round retreat, is perfect for families and friends. There is ample parking for 4 cars and a small paved terrace and lawn garden surrounded by a traditional Pembrokeshire hedge.
  • Skylark has recently been constructed to a very high standard, with locally sourced stone detailing and large windows allowing light to flood each of the interior spaces.
  • The attention to detail continues in each of the rooms, from the vaulted ceiling of the modern, well equipped kitchen diner, to the full height arched window illuminating the stair and landing. This is a beautiful clutter-free home.
  • Fachelich is a tiny hamlet on the edge of the old St Davids airfield. Just cycle or walk out of the village on the peaceful back lane and you, your children and friends (both two and four-legged) can meander safely out onto the open countryside. There is tarmac, meadow and lots of wildlife to enjoy!
  • Following an enjoyable day, exploring the Cathedral City, the coastal path and beautiful local beaches, all just within a very short drive, escape the crowds and retreat to the quiet of your very own home from home, in this special corner of Wales.

Comfortable cottage in a quiet location. A recent build that now needs some minor maintenance ( loose slabs by the front door, radiators need bleeding, the uncontrollable shower in the main bathroom) to get five stars.

Thank you for your comments which we will pass onto the owner, glad you enjoyed your stay at Skylark Cottage.

Guestbook Comments

If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at Skylark Cottage.

What a beautiful cottage and in such an idyllic situation! We found the cottage spotlessly clean and it was so warm we couldn't justify lighting the woodstove, even though we wanted to. We had a lovely holiday - thank you.

Beautiful place to stay - a lovely relaxing week. Plenty of dog walking on Newgale beach and St Davids Head. A great base for exploring the peninsula.

Beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location. Fabulous beaches at Whitesands and Newgale (dog friendly). St Davids is very quaint - great ice-cream shop. A visit to Tenby is worth a day out too! Fabulous week, great weather.

Immaculate on arrival. Very spacious, comfortable, light and airy. Great spot for our old favourites, St Davids, Solva and Newgale. Lovely stay had by all.

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.

Caerfai Beach and Whitesands Bay

  • A short drive leads to Caerfai Beach. This dog and family-friendly cove is perfect for sandcastles and rock pooling. A 10 minute drive will take you to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands - popular with families and surfers alike. The caf£ serves breakfast and evening meals in the summer season or why not enjoy a takeaway and sit on the beach to see the spectacular sunsets.

St Davids Airfield Safe Cycle Path & Nature Walk

  • During World War Two St Davids Airfield was the home of RAF Coastal Command, engaged in the Battle of the Atlantic. Today St Davids Airfield is a peaceful place, just minutes from Skylark Cottage, with safe cycle paths and level nature walks, ideal for all of the family. Discover this Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with its heath and wetland of national importance.

Close to St Davids shops, pubs and restaurants

  • With its independent caf£s and local produce, there is plenty to keep you occupied for days of browsing. Don't miss the country market on a Thursday between April and September. In Oriel y Parc, you will find lots of information about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, useful maps and guidebooks as well as an art gallery and caf£.

St Davids Cathedral and Bishops' Palace

  • Investigate the magnificent medieval Cathedral and ruined Bishops' Palace dedicated to Wales's Patron Saint. The Cathedral is a busy church but also an international venue for music throughout the year; a memorable and rewarding place to visit. The Bishop's Palace will captivate your imagination (and your children's) and take you back to glories past.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • From St Davids you can walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, both east and west. The cliffs are spectacular; the bird and wildlife is captivating; the sea and sky a constantly changing panorama. The Coast Path circles the Peninsula offering miles of breathtaking coastline, all within the easy reach of a two mile radius.

Ornithologists Paradise

  • A wide range of birders will enjoy myriad bird sightings all year round in Pembrokeshire. From the internationally important bird islands of Skomer, Skolkholm, Grassholm and Ramsey to coastal sea cliffs, coastal scrub and grasslands to the Preselli hills and moors, river estuaries, mudflats, lakes, woodlands, fields and hedgerows the area is rich with habitats.

Solva

  • This is a pretty village with parking on the harbour-side. With the chinking of boat halyards in the background. Try Fish and Chips at '35' (next to the harbour car park) and investigate the shops - clothes and gifts, antiques, pottery and curios. Walk along the Quay to the Caf£ at the Yacht Club and enjoy a freshly caught crab sandwich and watch the boating activity. Make your way up to Middle Mill to visit and shop at the oldest working mill in Pembrokeshire. Colourful woven rugs and local craft of the highest quality will tempt you to take a part of Wales back home with you.

Coastal Shuttle Buses

  • 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.

TYF Adventure Day

  • Do something a little different and get the adrenaline flowing on an adventure day out - kayaking, surfing, climbing or 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 experience it in the beautiful and rugged surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast.

Boat Trips

  • Traditional and serene or wet and wild, there are plenty of thrilling boat trips to choose from. Enjoy a memorable cruise to view the stunning Pembrokeshire coast and internationally important bird islands of Skomer and Ramsey. Ticket offices can be found in St Davids and Martins Haven.

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).

Dog Walking in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

  • Over 590 miles of glorious footpaths, bridleways and national trails through verdant countryside and beside the breathtaking coast will keep walkers and their four legged companions enthralled for hours.

Porthgain and Aberreiddy

  • A charming village with an attractive harbour. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was a flourishing seaport exporting slate and shale. Now it is a quaint harbour occupied with small fishing boats. Don't miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in or out at the Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed, where locally caught crab and lobster is also served. Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for the seals. Simply exhilarating.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

  • Further south in the county there are theme parks galore with diversions for families staying in Skylark. Look up Oakwood Theme Park, Manor Wildlife Park, Bluestone, Folly Farm Zoo and Heatherton for a good mix.

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.
