Check-in is between 4pm and 10pm, with check-out at 12 noon. We will be around to welcome you on your arrival, and are generally around as we live in the house too, and if you would like any suggestions or recommendations. Haroldston House is carbon neutral and we leave you complimentary provisions for your first breakfast in the fridge. There is free parking in a small, free public car park about 30m up the road. Unfortunately, we do not have space to store bikes inside overnight. Haroldston House lies in Pembrokeshire's most picturesque harbour village of Solva. Just a few minutes' walk down the hill to the restaurants, pubs and shops of Solva, as well as the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, we are the ideal holiday base from which to explore the St Davids Peninsula and North Pembrokeshire. Solva makes an ideal base from which to spend a few days exploring the beautiful St Davids Peninsula – whether by touring, coasteering or on Pembrokeshire’s world-famous coastal path, which takes you through the contrasting seascapes of the peninsula’s three shores. Exposed cliffs, beautiful beaches and coves, prehistoric vestiges and the post-industrial landscape of the promontory are all within a few miles of Haroldston House. The nearest railway station is Haverfordwest (21 km away) and ferry port is Fishguard (26 km away). Buses run hourly during the day (except Sundays) and there are also walkers' buses which run along the coast. Search for Traveline Cymru for timetables or download their app. There are also local taxi companies.More

About the neighbourhood
Solva/Solfach is an exceptional spot in Pembrokeshire. Its distinctive, sinuous harbour mouth is a ‘ria’ – a drowned river valley from the Ice Age – whose steep sides and dramatic light contrast with much of south Wales’ gentle coastal scenery. What is now a peaceful cove of bobbing boats was once a heaving industrial settlement (Solva retains its distinctive circular limekilns), a smugglers’ paradise (with its tortuous harbour mouth) and – most surprisingly of all – a transatlantic gateway (steamship passages to the USA were briefly sold here in the 1840s for £3 per adult)! Nowadays, visitors dropping in from the surrounding Pembrokeshire Coast Path relax in one of the village’s four hostelries or restaurants and tearooms.
Getting around
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is less than 5 minutes away. Buses run along the coast and to St Davids (except Sundays) - 411 and 400 (Puffin Shuttle); days and times are on the Traveline Cymru website or app.
