  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Valley High and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit the area."

    The cottage was lovely, with absolutely stunning views, very warm and cosy and extremely well & generously equipped. The five of us had a brilliant holiday and would love to go back again in the future. A big thank you to the owners for our stay.

    It’s a great base for exploring Pembrokeshire. We love the view of Newgale beach from the garden, as well as the home-from-home feeling of the cottage. It’s been great for us and our dog both in 2021 and this past visit too, and we look forward to returning in the future!

  • "Big thank you for a wonderful stay the bungalow had all amenities you could ever need, a welcome bottle of wine was very nice touch."

    Plenty to do around the area Wet days Escape rooms near ST. DAVIDS Scolton Manor Bowls in Milford Haven Cinema Dry days Oakwood theme park (they say tickets are not transferable but I emailed them and they did move to the next day, good if it is a wet day) So many nice walks and local pubs we ran out of time. And the best roads by miles, hard to find a pot hole even small side roads don’t have them. we played a game of finding potholes, one found a credit to you.

    The house is perfectly equipped with everything you could need and is lovely and clean and well maintained, the enclosed garden is perfect for our large dog the owners go above and beyond and are really helpful. We always have a great time in Newgale and it’s a great base for visiting the local area

  • "Valley High is an absolutely delightful little gem!"

    Spotlessly clean and super comfortable with everything we needed. And the views and accessibility to the beach are hard to beat! There were only two very minor issues: The freezer, though a good size, needed defrosting, but we did manage to fit most of our frozen food into it. On arrival we drove past the house twice before finding it - the house sign is quite low down & hard to spot. But these are really minor details - everything else was perfect, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. The owners' communication was excellent, and there was a lovely welcome pack of tea, welsh cakes & a bottle of wine when we arrived. Also a helpful instruction leaflet of anything we needed to know. We felt very welcomed and a bit spoilt - it was a brilliant holiday - thanks to the owners for everything they do to make it such a lovely spot! PS Just to mention for future customers that although it is advertised as dog-friendly, dogs are not allowed on sofas/ beds. Our well behaved dog is used to sitting on sofas with us, so it wasn't much fun keeping him off - but that was my error for not reading the small print when we booked.

    Comfortable and immaculately clean. Extra touches of milk, Welsh cakes and wine appreciated. It's lovely to be able to walk down to the beach. Our dog was safe in the enclosed garden. The only thing that we would have liked is some kind of streaming service/wifi/chromecast for the tv so we could log in to iplayer/netflix etc.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and we are pleased that you had a good holiday. We like to make our guest feel welcomed and I'm glad you enjoyed the Welsh Cakes and the Wine.

  • "This is a very nice, clean and well cared for bungalow."

    It has most of what you would need to enjoy your stay, with a secure garden for dogs to be in. Our only disappointment was that it was not mentioned in the description that the cottage is on the A487 which is a very busy road with no footpath. so whilst Newgale Beach is only a short walk away, I would NOT be walking down the A487 with no footpaths.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and I'm glad you had a good holiday. Valley High is on a main road but there is a footpath just down from the property which bring you out at the bottom of the hill only a few yards from the beach, so you avoid walking on the main road. The footpath is mentioned in our information booklet which is in the property, I'm sorry you didn't know this during your stay. Property Owner

  • "THE PERFECT SEASIDE PROPERTY!"

    All boxes ticked with stunning views. The thing that sets Valley High apart from the many country cottages that I have stayed in is the lovely homely feel that was so warm and welcoming after long walks along the coastal path with my dog. And the great seaside theme of coastal pictures and nautical nick-nacks throughout the property made it a superb stay.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We strive to make Valley High as homely as possible, it's been in our family for a very long time and always feels like home to us. Valley High is well positioned to explore the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and local beaches . I'm glad you had a good holiday and enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    nice view. 5 min by walk for the beach (dogs allowed). Other details, but really appreciated: beach seats available, dish washer or laundry capsules, binoculars etc... And the ice-creams from the farm near-by...they are amazing! Walks from there are beautiful. Only negative point, we could hear the traffic from the road from the bedrooms, not much an issue later during the day or from other rooms. However the location, view and fully furnished accomodation clearly outweigh the inconvenience. We would not hesitate to go back there

    Thank you for your lovely comments and we're glad you had a good stay at Valley High. The road is a busy road during the day but the traffic levels reduce greatly at night so I'm glad it didn't disturb you too much. We would love to welcome you back to Valley High anytime Property Owner

    The location of the cottage was idyllic. It was easy to reach so many wonderful local locations and equally nice to stay on site or walk to the local beach. The cottage itself was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was thoughtfully on hand. The only slight criticism is that there was quite a lot of building work going on in the next door properties - even so, the builders we're all very polite and unobtrusive. We will definitely try to book again. Thank you.

This may not be the case for other clients who wish to go out too eat, as there were no shops or restaurants near by, apart from a pub at the beach, but as we never went to it I can’t give a comment. The cottage was very COVID-19 friendly, as their were separate bins labelled for waste and also sealed bags for their disposal. We did find the main bed mattress didn’t suit us, but overall it didn’t spoil our stay, otherwise everything else was very comfortable.

About the location

SOLVA

St Davids 6 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.

Please note, there are steps leading from the car park to the property
