There is parking for one car for Wood Cottage in communal car park plus shared visitor spaces if available. There is a bus-stop (sheltered) 70 metres from the end of the drive served by a good service all the year round to St Davids and to Haverfordwest. During Spring and Summer services are especially frequent allowing access to many points along the coastal path especially handy for walkers. Timetables provided in the house. Access to the bus stop however is via a short stretch of road without a pavement. Therefore, bright clothing (and a light at night) along with due caution is recommended. Access to Wood Cottage is via one step up (approximately 20cm) followed by another two steps down (approx 15cm each) and further on another step down (approx 10cm) before reaching the front door where one small step up into the lobby followed by another into the kitchen area. There is outside lighting which comes on automatically at dusk. There is no on-site assistance available with luggage.

Apart from stormy weather at night we have had a lovely stay in this cottage. Well equipped and comfy bed. Elliott loved the bunk beds, it reminded him of peppa pig!Walks every day and Folly Farm a must with kids or not!
We have enjoyed our stay in this very well equipped cottage. The weather has been superb and we have walked virtually all week. The Scenery is breathtaking & such a relaxing place. The walk to Newgale is well worth doing for the views. visited Cwtch in St Davids and would highly recommend it
Great Cottage - Great weather
excellent cottage, well equipped and furnished. Great location for enjoying the coast.We enjoyed the coastal path walk. Whitesands beach, where the boys found crabs in the rockpools! Also took a boat trip around Ramsey Island and were thrilled by the seals. A great week thank you

Beautiful cottage in a great location, weather fabulous. Walked every day. Fantastic break.
We come from the beautiful Lake District Cumbria but this is another beautiful place. Our first visit to Pembrokeshire and probably not our last. Had a fantastic week in this lovely cottage and local area. We walked, played golf (St Davids), ate well (Cambrian and Cwtch) and slept well and not a moment wasted!!
We had a perfect holiday. Never thought we would need to pack sun lotion in Wales but 20+degrees C. The cottage has a perfect location for the Pembrokeshire coast. Had a great week. The cottage was very well appointed, almost like home, if not better. Solva, probably the best village on the Pembrokeshire coast. Coastal path fantastic towards Newgale and St Davids. Daughter and friend (both aged 13) loved it - a miracle for 13 year olds. Your cottage is a wonderful retreat for hard-working parents. Thank you for a great break.
A very enjoyable week of mainly dry and windy weather. Good walking conditions and easy access to the coast path. Wood Cottage is both tastefully furnished and well equipped. Many thanks for a lovely break.

A very good place to walk the coastal path from. Walking to St Davids is nice relatively flat walk. Walking to Newgale is a bit like mount-anearing in places and quite wearing on the knees.
This was our first holiday together and it turned out to be a very memorable one. Wood cottage was in the perfect location for walking the coastal path from Newgale to whitesands and the views were spectacular. Solva is a warm friendly place, specail thanks to the barman from the cambrian Inn who gave us a lift home when it was raining! Holiday culminated with our engagement on Ramsey Island! Just perfect!

We've had a lovley week here- a great base to explore from. Highlight of the week was a boat trip from Tenby (on the pride of Tenby)- we saw seals and a dolphin! The Harbour Inn in Solva has a good choice of food- and the sound cafe in St Davids is good for lunch. Whitesands beach is worth a visit lovley afternoon there. Its been great being so close to the coastal path- lovley for evening walks
