“Amazing location with fantastic views”
Reviewed September 20, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Lovely cottage with incredible views over the Solva coastline and a short walk from the harbour, pubs and restaurants. We've just had an amazing, relaxing week at Southwinds and would definitely recommend this as a place to stay if you're visiting Solva. Christine was really helpful and friendly and did everything to make our stay special. The view from the breakfast table on a sunny morning is quite spectacular, and who needs a tv when outdoors looks like that? The kids loved the walk down the path to the harbour, and running around the gardens. The rooms and beds were all really comfortable and the new kitchen is great. The only reason we didn't give the cottage a 5 is because we thought it could have been a bit cleaner. It certainly wasn't dirty and maybe it was because it was the end of the season, but it felt (kitchen apart) like it needed a proper clean. Would definitely recommend this place though, good value for money and a fantastic holiday all round - thank you!

“Stunning views”
Reviewed August 7, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

This is a lovely return visit to Southwinds for us. The views from the conservatory really are stunning. The little terraced area is a suntrap but whatever the weather the view can't be beaten. Southwinds is right on the coastal path. The local shop is a short stroll away it is surprisingly very well stocked and has lots of fresh fruit and veg. Solva is a very special part of Pembrokeshire. A small negative, parking is at a premium and can be tricky at times.

“Perfect”
Reviewed July 11, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We stayed for a week . The weather was fair but whatever the weather the accomodation is comfortable , well supplied with games and books if needed. The kitchen is extremely well equiped with high quality fitments and utensils.
Of course when it is fine weather the view is magnificent !! There are many lovely walks and if taxis are required the drivers ( local one ) are most helpful
Wonderful food at the Cambrian Inn

We are regular visitors to Solva in the off season and this is the first time we have stayed at Southwinds... what a lovely place it is!
We don’t want to say too much as we would like to keep it a secret.
We will be booking our return here shortly.
Thank You, Mark & Claire.

“Lovely holiday cottage in a great location with amazing views.”
Reviewed August 10, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a fantastic week in this great holiday cottage in upper Solva. The views are incredible from the conservatory and the walk down into Solva along coastal paths was so enjoyable. Catching crabs on the quayside at Solva and horse riding on Druidstone haven beach were highlights. As was just sitting looking at the view from the cottage!

“Great View”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I stayed in Southwinds for a week in early July and had a really good time. The property was adequately equipped and everything worked. No problem watching Wimbledon on the large TV on the day in rained all day. Conveniently located for St Davids and a short walk into the centre of Solva. The view out of St Bride's Bay is spectacular. It made a good base for walking the coastal path.

“Stunning location, lovely cottage!”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our 6th or maybe 7th stay in this lovely, homely, comfortable cottage. Views from the conservatory over hills and Solva harbour, would be hard to beat, which is why we keep coming back :) Coastal path walks from the front door, a short walk down to the harbour, shops and pubs, a bus service to St David's and Newgale from the village centre, meant that we hardly used the car. A really lovely place to stay.

Liked best: The views and the location, peaceful and secluded but with easy access to all village amenities
Liked least: No dedicated parking. Not a huge problem but does mean you have to park a short walk away.
