Lovely house in a great location to discover St Davids and the beautiful beaches. Solva is a lovely small town with good pubs in easy walking distance. The house has everything for a comfortable stay and the hot tub is a real treat after a long day walking the fantastic coastal path. Highly recommend this property.

Easy walking access to the coastal path. No sweeping sea views, but glimpses are nice. The best water pressure in the showers we’ve ever encountered anywhere in the UK. We enjoyed the hot tub. Lovely holiday home.
