Enjoy a blissful coastal break in this exceptional, four-bedroom holiday home in one of Upper Solva's most desirable spots, with stunning views of Solva Harbour and beyond.

The Durham is a beautiful, whitewashed family home that has recently joined our portfolio of Pembrokeshire holiday cottages. Following its full renovation and refurbishment, the spacious property is ready for your seaside getaway.

Dating from the 19th century, the three-storey cottage sleeps eight, making it perfect for a get-together with your family or friends. Its many appealing features include a cosy log burner, range cooker, 'suntrap' roof terrace, parking for two cars – and an enviable location right next to the scenic coast path. Plus, The Durham is our first cottage to feature a fast EV charge point, so you can charge your electric car for your coastal adventures.

And if you need extra space for your family or friends, you can also book The Durham's neighbouring holiday let, The Durham Snug, a self-contained one-bedroom apartment, ideal for a couple (and a baby too). (To find out more and book The Durham Snug, click here.)

The Durham and The Durham Snug share a porch, but each has its own separate, lockable front door.



Situated in a sought-after location in Upper Solva, The Durham overlooks pretty Solva Harbour and the breathtaking Pembrokeshire coast. The holiday home is in the quiet cul-de-sac of Penyraber, where you can step outside and on to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for invigorating walks and awe-inspiring views.

One of the prettiest villages in Wales, Solva is split into Upper and Lower Solva. Here, you'll find a colourful mix of shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as the picturesque harbour and low-tide beach.

A holiday in Solva offers you a wealth of opportunities for walking, watersports, shopping and other seaside activities – such as crabbing at the quay. You'll also be within easy reach of other popular Pembrokeshire destinations, including St Davids and Porthgain – and award-winning beaches like Whitesands Bay and Newgale.


Ground Floor

Enter via a tiled porch, shared with the neighbouring one-bedroom apartment, The Durham Snug. (Both The Durham and The Durham Snug have their own separate, lockable front doors.)


The front door leads into a beautifully designed, family-sized fitted kitchen. The fully equipped, Shaker-style kitchen includes a range cooker, washing machine and tumble-dryer. There's also a large dining table and chairs, so you can enjoy leisurely meals with your family or friends. From the kitchen, a set of stone steps takes you to the lovely flat-roof terrace.


The cloakroom is handy for rinsing your wetsuits when you're fresh from the beach. As well as a toilet, it has a large stainless-steel sink with a shower hose and a sand trap.


Relax in the comfortable lounge, where you can enjoy stunning views of picture-perfect Solva Harbour. The room also features a stone fireplace and log burner, and comfy seating.

(From the ground floor, a spindle staircase leads up to the first floor.)

Plus, the bedroom benefits from large Velux roof windows, which you can open fully to enjoy panoramic coastal views and a feeling of being outside.

Outside Space

The holiday home also has a lovely, stone-built 'cwtchy' nook on the other side of the road, with seating, space for a barbecue and fabulous harbour views. What's more, you'll have the added benefit of parking for two cars and a fast EV charge point, so you can power up ready for exploring Pembrokeshire.
