Can yr Afon (‘song of the river’) is a charming Welsh-stone cottage in picturesque Lower Solva, in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Sleeping four, the two-bedroom holiday home is just a few minutes’ walk from Main Street, with its inviting shops, galleries, pubs, restaurants and pretty harbour with low-tide beach.
The delightful, whitewashed cottage has been renovated, while emphasising its traditional character, including beamed ceilings and a cosy lounge and log burner. It also has a stylish kitchen/diner featuring a breakfast bar and booth-style seating.
Can yr Afon is great for a couple, family or friends, and is within easy reach of Pembrokeshire’s many attractions, from watersports and boat trips to theme parks and castles.
Can yr Afon sits in a quiet lane in Lower Solva, just a few steps from the centre of the idyllic coastal community.
Lower Solva is home to a low-tide beach and lovely quay – a fantastic location for crabbing.
From Upper Solva, meanwhile, you can enjoy stunning views across St Brides Bay or join the spectacular clifftop walks of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Situated a few miles from the city of St Davids, Solva is home to a colourful mix of art galleries and independent shops, and there is a post office and convenience store, too.
There are plenty of places to eat and drink thanks to the bustling community’s wide selection of cafes, tearooms, pubs and takeaways. And across Pembrokeshire you will find award-winning beaches like Newgale and Whitesands Bay.
