Solva is a picturesque, sheltered harbour village in North Pembrokeshire, a few miles from the UK’s smallest town of St. Davids, but with its own distinctive character and charm. It has a good range of pubs, restaurants, and cafes in a town which is split between two levels, lower and upper Solva and has spectacular views over the northern part of St. Brides Bay as the estuary winds into the harbour around the raised coastlines on both sides of the water.
It’s well worth taking the short walk to the Gribin, an Iron Age fort above the village, for impressive coastal views and Solva Wollen Mill is also well worth a visit, having first opened in 1907.
Every year, Solva plays host to a range of events such as open water sea swimming events and the popular village Literature and Music event, Edge Festival.
Solva remains a popular hotspot and holiday destination, with a range of things to do and see, as well as fantastic places to stay locally. With St. Davids a few miles down the road, with its history and magnificent Cathedral, holidaying in Solva will guarantee you a fantastic break, no matter the time of year.
It’s a wonderful place to visit and explore.
