“One word for it...'idyllic!'”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Southwinds, Solva in April 2014. We had an absolutely wonderful week - sunshine, walking, surfing, boat trips, great food at the local pubs and 'the' most idyllic view. We have stayed in many cottages over the years but Southwinds was by far one of the best! Whichever room you are in - you have a view of the sea (sitting in bed having my morning cup of tea will never be quite the same!) We felt relaxed from the moment we stepped through the door.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Southwinds - thank you for sharing your wonderful cottage with us - we really couldn't have had a better week!

“Fabulous cottage with beautiful views”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We managed to pick the one week of the year that Wales was put under a severe weather warning, however the cottage is absolutely fabulous. Southwinds is spacious and warm and has picturesque views from both the sun room and the main bedroom. The sun (on the one day it shone) streamed into the sun room and in the evenings the open fire was lovely.

There is plenty of space for four people (although we were actually only two) but there are lots of seats so you wouldn't feel on top of one another. The local village is pleasant and has several pubs and a few little shops and St. David's is only about 15 minutes away by car. You need to take some CDs and a decent torch (for the walk from the car in the evenings).

Wonderful cottage - we'd love to go back in the summer.

“Simply magical”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I stayed at Southwinds with my husband and my sister for four nights. We had a totally wonderful time - once we figured out how to turn on the heating! The views are magical and the sun pours into the sunroom. We actually had several hours of blue skies when we managed to do some great walks. It was really well equipped and lots of space for the three of us. I don't think the photos do it justice. Every morning I got up to watch the sunrise from the sunroom. I could quite easily live here forever. Would have been nice to have been provided with the basics such as bread, butter etc but really since we came prepared it was no problem at all. Also, would have been nice to have had wifi, but we coped quite easily. If I come back to Wales, which I hopefully will, I would definitely rent it for a week.

“Southwinds - views and comfort”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We really enjoyed our short break staying at Southwinds. The views were fantastic, especially with the changeable weather, and the house was very cosy, warm and well-equipped. We would like to return in the future and would definitely recommend to others.

“Another fabulous stay at this gem of a cottage”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We've stayed at Southwinds five times now, which, I think, says it all :) Really comfortable home with outstanding sea views from the conservatory and main bedroom. Coastal path on the doorstep, walking distance down to Solva harbour with its pubs and cafes. We love it!

“Fantastic view, excellent property”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We have stayed in many holiday cottages all over the UK, this view was by far the best you could just sit in the conservatory all day looking at it and watching the world go by. Warm, cozy, very comfortable. 10 minutes stroll to the local pub in the harbour which is walker and dog friendly and good meals. Solva itself is picturesque and a very relaxing place. Walk along the coast path to St David's and catch the bus back. The pembrokeshire coast is like Cornwall but without the crowds and coming back to Southwinds to chill out is a bonus. Hope to visit again.
