No. 2 The Mariners is in the middle of a small terrace of 4 cottages converted from what was originally the village store, above which the Mariners used to sleep in the days when Solva was a thriving port. Hence its name. It is a comfortable, well equipped cottage for up to 6 in 3 spacious bedrooms - recently refurbished to add ensuite toilets to the top floor bedrooms. Bed linen is provided and the beds will be made up for you on arrival, but PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT PROVIDE TOWELS. The twin room on the first floor is en suite and there is a further shower room. Two double bedrooms are on the second floor, now also with ensuite facilities.

If you choose to 'eat in' the cottage is very well equipped with pots, pans, matching crockery, cutlery and glasses. But if you wish to 'eat out' Lower Solva provides three pubs ranging from cheap and cheerful to Gastropub, and several cafes. St Davids is within a 5 min drive ( or taxi) and also has award winning restaurants, several atmospheric pubs and a super Indian. The property is non smoking and we don't usually accept pets. I'm not a fan of this sterile booking by hitting a button process so would be only too happy for guests to ring me with enquiries and for up to date photos.More

About the neighbourhood
Solva is a wonderful base from which to explore all that Pembrokeshire has to offer..... beautiful beaches, fabulous coastal path walks, the City of St Davids is only a 3 min drive away. Folly Farm, Skomer Island, Oakwood and Bluestone are all within a 45 min drive and Tenby is just under an hour. But with a lovely beach, walks down to the end of the Quay, crabbing and the cafes and pubs to hand you may not even need to venture far to have a great break and make lots of lovely, family memories.
How to get there
A car is really the best way to get to the cottage however, once there, guests have been known to not use it again during their stay. You can walk the coast path directly from the cottage in both directions and make use of the local buses, and the Puffin Shuttle, to get back ...the buses stop right outside the door.
