Sitting quietly beneath the branches this cosy little hut near Solva is a restful retreat just a few minutes from the majestic Pembrokeshire Coast. Perched at the helm of a hidden valley, Fairy Bridge overlooks beautiful bluebell woodland and a small brook which runs through the valley below. Trundle along the footpath at the bottom of the slope, past millponds and the remnants of an old mill to your own secret beach. This small south facing cove has its own natural diving pool and small waterfall to swim under.
The cosy space is equipped with a small but functional micro kitchen, a woodburning stove to keep you lovely and toasty in the cooler eves and a corner sofa which opens out into a good-sized double bed. The hut is serviced with an en-suite eco bathroom with hot running water and shower, providing all the modern comforts you will need.
Outside, relax and unwind in the hammock chairs or sit on the bench and simply watch the world amble by. The trees are filled with woodland birds chirping away, while badgers and foxes' rustle through the undergrowth below.
A short drive (or a steady walk) along the coastal road takes you to the popular fishing village of Solva. Take a stroll around the idyllic harbour, which includes shallow pools and caves for paddling and exploring, while gastronomes are spoilt for choice with fish restaurants, cafes and lovely pubs to choose from. What's more, the city of St Davids is only a further 5 minutes down the coast with a variety of attractions from its famous cathedral, small shops, restaurants, and of course, its spectacular selection of golden beaches. This idyllic little hideaway in the heart of Pembrokeshire's National Park is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway.
