18th C cottage quietly situated close to Solva.

This character beamed 18th century cottage is situated in the quiet hamlet of Whitchurch, Solva. On the edge of the old St David’s airfield nature reserve and only 4.5 miles from one of the best surfing beaches in Wales, it is ideal for walkers, birdwatchers, surfers and families just wanting to get away from it all. The picturesque harbour town of Solva (¾ of a mile) from the cottage offers a wide selection of cafes, restaurants and pubs.

The cottage remains snug all year round, courtesy of a Rayburn cooker, which provides central heating and plenty of hot water. There is also a wood burner in the sitting room for extra warmth.
