The property

This is a first floor apartment, in an elevated position, with far-reaching views across the bay to the little wildlife haven of Skomer Island, just a short walk to the pretty harbour village of Solva and near to the fabulous South Wales beaches.

The apartment is a perfect base for friends or family looking for somewhere cosy to retreat to, after spending the day exploring the fabulous Pembrokeshire National Park, whilst being close to pubs and places to grab a bite to eat. This is a real home-from-home, tastefully decorated with accents of the seaside, with two cosy bedrooms and a family bathroom.

There is a well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable sitting area with distant sea views, perfect to unwind after a day walking the coastal path.

Outside, you can sit in communal gardens and relax over an early evening drink, or perhaps take a stroll along the nearby coastline and enjoy the seaside views.The village of Solva is tucked away on a quiet inlet off St Brides Bay, surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Pembrokeshire National Park, ideal for walking along the Wales Coastal Path that stretches in both directions.

The pretty cathedral city of St Davids is a few minutes’ drive away and a real gem, no larger than a small village but with the hidden splendour of the cathedral.

You are ideally placed to explore the special coastline of St Brides Bay, peppered with popular beaches and coves such as Newgale, a surfers haven is less than a 10 minute drive away.

Broad Haven and Little Haven with their sandy beaches are also easily reached within half an hour.

A 45 minute drive will take you through amazing coastal countryside, a day out in itself, to the villages of Marloes, St Brides and Dale, the latter offering the opportunity to take a boat trip to the wildlife rich island of Skomer, seasonal home to the comical puffins and Manx shearwaters.This apartment is a perfect coastal retreat, ideal for families and friends looking to explore this wonderful part of the country.

About the location

SOLVA

St Davids 3 miles; Haverfordwest 12 miles.

A superb village around a tidal harbour where boats can be launched and walks along the dramatic coast path will be a delight any time of the year. This pretty little village may be small but offers friendly pubs serving good food, a fish and chip shop, gift shops, art galleries and a nearby superb woollen mill shop where special gifts can be bought to remember your stay in Wales. Lazy days sitting and watching the ebb and flow of the tide and the boats bobbing in and out of the harbour are a sheer delight. Visit the nearby woollen mill itself to sit by the waterwheel, go into the weaving shed or enjoy a break in the cafe. Just a few miles from Solva you can visit St Davids, the smallest city in Britain, with its magnificent St Davids Cathedral and wander the small streets to again find unique gifts, eat a hearty meal or an afternoon tea, or just sit in the peaceful grounds of the cathedral. Whitesands Bay with its superb beach offers relaxing days or maybe some surfing. Take boat trips to spot dolphins and wonderful sea birds or take bike rides along country roads. A wonderful location to enjoy your Welsh holiday.
