Cottages within easy reach of Solva
Only 6 miles from our holiday cottages, Solva’s a “must see” village just along the coast from Newgale. Centred on a deep and rocky creek, this Pembrokeshire seafaring village is a great place to visit, with its restaurants, art galleries and pubs.
Said to have been founded by the Vikings, in days of old Solva was a centre for piracy and smuggling – the village was even the haunt of Barti Ddu, or Black Bart, one of the world’s most notorious pirates who hailed from Little Newcastle in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, along with countless others.
Many of the village’s houses even included built in smuggling cupboards, and smuggling tunnels are still said to thread their way inland from the coast.
Fishing vessels still work from the village, which includes a popular yacht club. Enjoy a scenic walk to a headland overlooking the harbour, or sample the local seafood. Solva Woollen Mill can be visited at nearby Middle Mill.
