About Sarah Davies
My family have lived in Solva for over 70 years. I used to live just a few hundred yards away from 23 glanhafan. I now live away with my own young family but we return regularly as we love the area so much.
Sarah Davies purchased this cottage in 2011
Why Sarah Davies chose St Brides Bay, St Davids & The West Coast
We bought the property with a view to live and raise my children there. We dedicated 2 years to completely renovate ithe cottage.We and adore it!
Work commitments have resulted in us moving away so we hope others can enjoy what a great house it is.
What makes this cottage unique
The location is perfect for Solva. It is in upper Solva near the main shop and is a 5 minute walk from the cost path and Harbour.
It is so rural and quiet and we love our breaks back there.

The interior of this cottage has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard. Extremely spacious and comfortably furnished. Amazing kitchen/diner, very well equipped. Would definitely recommend this cottage as an ideal location for discovering Pembrokeshire. Places to recommend for good food - Cambrian Inn, Solva, Cwtch in St David's (booking essential), Druidstone Hotel in Druidston Haven (eccentric hotel with the most amazing views and great food), The Shed in Porthgain for great fish and chips. Place to avoid - The Ship Inn - the worst Sunday roast we have ever had. Great Italian ice-cream shop in St David's. The cathedral is well worth a visit.
Very comfortable, high quality, clean and well equipped home in a beautiful place. Ideal for those with children but anyone would love it here. The coastal path is round the corner with an unforgettable first walk into Lower Solva's harbour. Out of the back gate of the garden is a playground, a skate-park and a football pitch - we played every day!
We did two coastal walks - St Davids to Solva and Newgale to Solva - feet still sore but more than worth it for the views. There are four pubs in Solva but we only managed three - Royal George the best for atmosphere, the Ship was good for food with excellent service, Harbour Inn for a top pint of Rev. We were extremely lucky with the weather so spent four days at nearby Newgale with its incredibly long beach (wish we'd had a windbreak at times).
We would love to return to this property and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family. The owner was very clear and prompt with communications. Like I said - perfect. Thank you.
A super spacious cottage. East to find and well located in Upper Solva about a 10 mins downhill walk to the harbour. Parking opposite. Everything we needed and more, particularly appreciated the washing machine !. Very clean and well maintained.
Would recommend the coast walk from Solva to St Davids took about 2 hours with a couple of steep sections but not too difficult. The Deli in St Davids serves excellent picnic baguettes and the Italian ice cream shop is a must. We took a boat trip The Red Boat from Solva Harbour one evening, as the boat only seats 5 it was a 'private' trip which was absolutely lovely. Would recommend the Old Pharmacy and The Cambrian. Whitesands Bay is beautiful. Also worth a mention is the Shed Bistro in Portgain for fresh fish, you will need to book !
I would definitely recommend this cottage, the childrens play area behind the cottage with access from the garden makes it ideal for families, Excellent service from Sarah the owner and Owners Direct.
very enjoyable stay, cottage clean and well maintained, very comfortable. close to all amenities. easy to find and park. would definitely recommend and hope to visit again.
Places to avoid for food The Harbour Inn, Solva...places to enjoy The Cambrian and The cwtch in St davids
