This cottage is charming. Fantastic location, close to Solva shops, pubs and harbour, yet in a quite road. The parking space is a massive plus in Solva where parking is quite restricted. Lovely garden leading down to a stream. Well equipped, lovely rooms, fabulous.

A lovely warm welcoming cottage with a nice garden to enjoy and relax. The local residents are friendly and enjoyed the local food. There are some lovely walks around Solva, both coastal and woodland walks.

This is a clean, well equipped cottage in a lovely location. We were lucky enough to have chosen a warm and sunny weekend for our stay. The garden is beautiful, we sat there in the sunshine while our dog was able to keep cool by paddling in the river. The pubs in the village are dog friendly and there are lovely walks in the woods behind the cottage and along the harbour and coastal path.

Lantern Cottage is a delightful cottage, close to the harbour and facilities at Solva. It was spotlessly clean with excellent bathroom (really good showers) and kitchen facilities. We really enjoyed our stay there.
