Ty Cranc

Holiday Cottage in Solva

Availability & Book

About Ty Cranc

Ty Cranc is a traditional stone, mid-terrace cottage, beautifully and sympathetically renovated with sea views, set on a quiet no through lane in the heart of Upper Solva, just a stone’s throw from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and village pub.

Comfortably and stylishly furnished with a contemporary twist complimenting the traditional features there is practical slate flooring and beams throughout. Step into the open-plan living space with an L shaped sofa providing comfy seating, dining area with bespoke reclaimed wood furniture and compact fitted kitchen with 1 step up to utility area, the wood burning stove ensures a cosy feeling on the chilliest of evenings. Stairs lead up to a delightful double bedroom on the first floor, enjoy the sea views. Children will love the cleverly designed, space saving bunk bed pod, alternatively, there are fixed foot step stairs leading to another double bedroom nestling in the eaves, also with sea views from the veluxs, but mind your head on the exposed beams.

On a summer's day, enjoy sitting on the bench in front of the cottage or spend time in the separate island garden set down the lane with a lawn where children can play and you can linger over an alfresco meal soaking up the sea view. Conveniently located in Upper Solva, there is a popular village pub only a few yards away and a well-stocked shop or down the hill in Lower Solva there are a further range of shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants to try, jostling around the picturesque harbour, a sheltered sandy bottomed harbour ideal for sailing enthusiasts and kayakers.

Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal path running not far from your doorstep to really appreciate this rugged and spectacular coastline, the views are breath taking out over St Brides Bay and the islands of Ramsey, Skokholm and Grassholm. A short drive to the west lies the tiny city of St Davids with its range of shops, pubs and restaurants, the Bishops Palace and Cathedral are well worth a visit or take a boat trip from St Justinians round the island of Ramsey, famous for its seal pubs in September. While families and surfing enthusiasts will love the long sandy beach at Newgale to the east with its beach side pubs and cafes.

A lovely cosy holiday home for couples and families alike, whatever the time of year.
