Lovely spacious house with stunning views. Perfect for a family get-together and holiday. The instructions and information we were given definitely helped to make an enjoyable break.
Alistair, September 2023
This has been an amazing place to stay. The pictures don’t convey how big the place is - the living room and dining area are really spacious, the other rooms are a good size and the grounds are nice. The other thing which doesn’t come across is the near 360 degree views. As well as good views of the sea from two sides of the house, one looks over some pretty fields and countryside. Full marks for cleanliness. We like the location - a short drive down to the village where the harbour, pubs and shops are. You can close the gate to the front which allowed us to have the dog out and about, or the patio doors open, without worrying too much, although that would depend on the size and nature of your dog (we have a large, well-behaved dog).
Gordon and family, August 2023

Clough family, August 2023
Thank you for our amazing time here, the house is lovely and the view is great. The beds so comfy and so were the sofas. Thank you again for our lovely time here. I hope we come again.

Pen y Banc really is a terrific house for a family gathering or celebration or a group of friends who simply need an excuse to get together. It’s excellent location just above Solva village means you are within easy access to the Coastal Path and all that Solva has to offer.










St Davids Escapes

Solva boasts gastro pubs, restaurants and charming and quirky coffee shops, along with the traditional locals watering holes.

St Davids Escapes

The downhill walk to the harbour will certainly be worth it – however please remember that what goes down must come up – a short taxi ride is suggested for the smaller/older members of the family. Kis will certianly love Solva’s tidal harbour and beach, especially crabbing on the harbour walls.

St Davids Escapes

Just 3 miles away or an 8 minute drive is the charming city of St Davids with its magnificent Cathedral, medieval Bishops Palace and lots of lovely shops and galleries.

However, if a day building sandcastles on the beach sounds more appealing, the extremely popular sandy beaches of Whitesands and Newgale are a short car journey away.
