Solva is a picturesque harbour village situated on the north coast of St. Brides Bay in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, on the main route to the Cathedral City of St. David’s.
On entering the village from the east, you will pass over the Grade II listed stone arched bridge traversing the River Solva, and immediately to your right you will find The Cambrian Inn situated at the junction of Main Street and Prendergast Road (also known as Middle Mill Lane).
Blessed with a stunning scenic tidal foreshore the harbour offers fantastic opportunities for messing about on the water at high tide, or pottering about in rock pools and enjoying the sandy beach at low tide. Most visitors will take the opportunity for a walk, or simply spend time relaxing by whiling away time in the wide variety of locally owned and operated shops, galleries, pottery and of course restaurants, concentrated along the colourful Main Street.
If staying with us, from your base at The Cambrian Inn you can head out down the short Main Street through the village to enjoy the walks along the harbour edge, the foreshore and up the twin headlands and beyond along the coastal path. In the other direction you can take a mile and a half stroll up the quiet Middle Mill Lane, following the River Solva up the valley floor to the hamlet of Middle Mill where you will find one of only two fully working woollen mills in Pembrokeshire. Finally crossing back over the bridge opposite The Cambrian Inn, and heading up the valley on the opposite bank of the river you can enjoy one of Solva’s best kept secrets, a lovely woodland walk.
