Our local harbour village
great food with stunning sea views
We are just a quarter of a mile from the centre of Solva village, a beautiful fishing village with a harbour and its own beach (Gwadn). Solva boasts five pubs/restaurants, three cafes, numerous boutique gift shops and galleries and a general store which caters for every need. The short walk to Solva from Llanungar is along a private lane and a quiet country road, avoiding any busy, major A road, so we’re the closest and most accessible campsite and static caravan park to Solva. It is only a mile from lower Solva to Llanungar, but for those not wishing to hike back up the hill after a day or evening out, you can hop on a bus or call a local taxi.
Dining to suit all tastes & budgets
We have a good selection of pub fayre, restaurant-style food and relaxed café eating- something for every taste and budget.
Four pubs in one small village
You can be guaranteed a good choice of ales! There are regular live music events, quizzes and screens showing major sporting events in the pubs of Solva – so it’s great for evenings out or rainy days.
Independent art galleries & shops
These are dotted along the pretty high street in Lower Solva, with its pastel-painted facades. Well worth a visit, these outlets sell everything from local arts and crafts to well-known brands of clothing.
Harbour & quay
A pretty harbour and quay with a licensed café, this is a popular hang-out where you may enjoy crabbing, boating, kayaking and bathing at high tide, or simply watch the world go by. At low tide, it is great for walking, beach-combing and foraging along the harbour bed, or a paddle in the waves at the harbour entrance. The harbour is home to ‘Swim to the Edge’ in August, one of the largest organised open water swimming competitions the UK. (ttps://www.man-upuk.com/tours/swim-to-the-edge/)
Bay View Stores
‘the little shop that sells a lot!’
It has a post office, off-licence, newsagent, fresh fruit, veg, meat and a bakery plus a whole lot more! It really is the heart of the community and you’ll be hard pushed not to find what you need here. Plus, Gwyn’s roadside signs are always entertaining!
Gwadn beach & the Gribin
Gwadn is a sheltered cove at the entrance of the harbour, accessed via a path over the Gribin. This is a great place for swimming or sunbathing on a sunny day.
Walk along the ‘Gribin’ (ridge) for a bird’s eye view of the harbour and the Gwadn beach the other side. The Gribin separates Solva from the Gwadn valley. Descend to Gwadn Beach or stay high, sit and admire the views.
Walk along the Solva Valley, through Bluebell woods and admire the view back towards the harbour from the head of the valley.
Fresh crab & lobster
Buy your locally-caught, fresh crab and lobster here. Several fisherman in the village expertly prepare beautifully-dressed shellfish. You can also order fresh fish to cook on the BBQ.
Two play parks
There are two play parks for children in the village. One in Lower Solva suited to younger children, just beside the river near the high street. The other is suited to older children and also has a small skate park, situated next to the football ground through Maes-y-Eglwys in the Centre of the village.
