About the property


The Stables and Old Dairy are two delightful character properties situated in a wonderful, peaceful location, ideal for children, being well away from the road and having plenty of areas for them to play.

The cottages are just over a mile away from Solva with its beautiful harbour and superb seafood restaurants. St David's, with its magnificent cathedral and variety of boutique shops, is only three miles away.

Beautiful walks lead from the cottages via woodland packed with wildlife, as well as being within easy reach of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with its 186 miles of stunning shoreline. Several superb Blue Flag beaches are within a short drive.

About The Owner

After having visited West Wales for many years, we decided to move here in 2011.

I work as a private paediatric speech therapist, as well as looking after the properties along with my husband.

We are always accessible and willing to help our guests at all times.

I enjoy playing my piano, boating and walking with our dog on the coast path.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1995

Why The Owner chose Solva

We loved the peaceful setting and wonderful walks direct from the property.

Comfortable cottage, great location

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was comfortable though very basic, but adequate for our needs. :Location was excellent with easy access to St David's and the coast path (which is what we were there for). Weather good for the time of year.

Excellent from start to finish... only upset was that it had to finish. Set in beautiful surroundings, the cottage was warm and cosy and fully furnished with everything we needed. Lots of personal touches loved it and would highly recommend this cottage to everyone.. The owner provided good customer service. Highly recommended to anyone thinking of booking... hoping to have the opportunity of returning again... Thank you

Further Details:

The cottages are situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only coastal National Park in Britain, offering stunning views from majestic cliffs to gently rolling pasture land. The Park has just been judged the second most outstanding coastal destination by National Geographic Magazine.

The 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of Britain’s National Trails. It is made so interesting by the variety of landscapes and breathtaking scenery you pass through on your way along it. The seasonal bus services are designed for walkers. - travel by bus for a few miles and walk back along the Coast Path at your own pace.

There are also some remarkably pleasant towns and villages to explore, rest, refresh and recuperate in; especially after experiencing those views!

The magnificent Cathedral at St Davids has dominated the landscape since the 12th Century and is worthy of a visit. During May and June it is host to a feast of classical music at the Cathedral Festival.

If you enjoy the water, you can visit Ramsey Island on a guided boat trip or try kayaking or windsurfing. Children can enjoy watching the sheepdog training near St Davids, go dolphin watching, or visit Folly Farm or Oakwood.

For those looking for a more relaxing pace, spend the day at one of the many stunning beaches and then relax over a drink or meal in one of the wonderful pubs or restaurants.
