About Caerwen No.1

Caerwen Cottages are two 18th Century fisherman’s cottages in the beautiful village of Solva in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The houses are perfect for families and friends as each sleeps up to six guests in three bedrooms. They are adjoining and, depending on availability, can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests. With Solva’s village store, cafes and pubs just a few minutes walk away, Caerwen Cottages are in a fantastic location for a stress-free holiday.

Solva is an ideal place to base yourself while exploring the wonders of the Pembrokeshire National Park. St Davids is only three miles away, and there are dozens of stunning beaches stretching up and down the coast. The long-distance Pembrokeshire Coast Footpath runs from Cardigan in the north all the way along the coast to Amroth in the south, including past the front gates of Caerwen Cottages. Whether you just want to stretch your legs for a gentle stroll or take advantage of the regular bus service that runs along the route to walk ten or more miles, time on the footpath is an experience to treasure.

Although Pembrokeshire is a popular holiday destination all year round, it comes alive in summer when holidaymakers flock to its stunning beaches. When the tide is low, Solva is a delight of rock pools and caves to explore, with a sheltered position that makes it calm and safe for swimming. Nearby Newgale Beach is a vast, two-mile expanse of sand and sea that is popular with surfers and kite surfers, while slightly further south, Broad Haven is perfect for families as it has good amenities. Caerfai is a small, secluded beach between Solva and St Davids, while surfers like Whitesands for its consistent break.

Although it has a reputation for adventure sports - it is the birthplace of coasteering, after all - the Pembrokeshire National Park offers a vast choice of activities to suit all tastes and budgets. Visit Pembroke Castle and see where Henry VII was born, and you should definitely go to St Davids and see the magnificent cathedral and picturesque ruins of the neighbouring Bishop’s Palace. Haverfordwest is the county town of Pembrokeshire and has a castle, museum, shops and lots of places to eat and drink, or spend a day mooching around Fishguard. There are boat tours taking visitors from St Davids to see dolphins and sea bird colonies. Whatever type of holiday you are planning, if it involves a comfortable, character-filled holiday home with incredible views, then Caerwen Cottages are perfect.

Location (The Pembrokeshire Coast)

The layout of Caerwen No 1 is similar to its neighbouring cottage, with all the charm and character you would expect from a period property. The owners have kept many original features while sympathetically modernising the cottages to be comfortable for modern guests.

Accommodation Comprises:


  • Entrance hallway with space to leave sandy or muddy shoes and coats.
  • Sitting room which is a lovely place to relax and is painted in white and cream to make the most of the natural light. There is a comfortable three-piece suite and television with DVD player.
  • Separate dining room with a beamed ceiling, fireplace and table with seating for six people.
  • The kitchen is sensibly equipped for easy self-catering and includes ample crockery and cutlery for six people. It has an electric oven and stove, microwave, toaster and kettle. The owners have fitted a washer/dryer and provided an iron and ironing board for guests to use during their stay. A door leads into the garden at the rear of the cottage.
  • A shower room has a walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.


  • The first of the three bedrooms is a family room with both a double and a single bed. There is good storage, and the room benefits from fantastic views of the river and harbour.
  • Second bedroom with bunk beds, each being a full-sized single and large enough to sleep an adult. It also has a chest of drawers and bedside light.
  • Third bedroom with a full-sized single bed, and sloped ceiling with exposed beams.
  • Bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath, WC and handbasin.

Outside: A paved terrace area at the front of the cottage has garden furniture and is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the incredible views. There is off street parking on the driveway.

Additional Information: The cottage has WiFi and central heating, and all utilities are included. Guests need to bring linen and towels. The owners are happy to accommodate well-behaved pets - please enquire when booking. No smoking.
