The spacious open plan living area is furnished in warm, rich tones, the lounge looks out to sea, relax on the sofas and admire the view, while the modern, fitted kitchen/diner is perfect for preparing a meal and looks out to the wooded area.

Excellent week helped by good weather. Spacious and nice apartment - just right for two. Walk into Solva from the apartment. Highly recommend The Shed at Porthgain – great fish over and beyond traditional ‘fish & chips’.
We echo the comments above. We thoroughly enjoyed a boat trip to see the puffins and shearwaters one evening, and loved seeing the night sky from the bedroom window on a couple of clear nights
Such a treat to walk into a spotlessly clean apartment, modern, tasteful furnishings, lovely local art work decorating it. Location and beautiful views are second to none. Love it! Don’t want to leave. Ideal for the coastal path. It’s been a wonderful escape from the big bad hectic world out there! Thank you for the wine and fudge – a lovely treat on arrival.
I’ve been coming to Pembrokeshire for nearly 60 years and just love the peace and the spectacular coastline. This is my second visit to Llanunwas because of the comfortable, well-equipped apartments and the wonderful view over the fields and the sea; after a day’s activities, sitting in the window with a book and a cup of tea is heavenly! I’ve had some lovely sunny walks along various parts of the coastal path and beaches, walked around the Southwood Estate (NT, south of Newgale) and visited Picton Castle & gardens – recommended. Back to real life…!
Another great week at Skokholm View, we’ll be back. Saw a Chough on the coastal path between Llanunwas and Solva
A wonderful week in this spacious and comfortable apartment. Thanks for organising such great weather too! We know Pembrokeshire very well having visited all parts over 20 years. Great to be back after a few years and to stay in one of our favourite areas – St. David’s Peninsula. All beautiful and unspoilt as ever!
Wonderful escape from the chaos of Christmas! The apartment is comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. Great to have access to the coastal path just outside the window
Spacious and nice apartment – just right for two
Lovely spacious apartment, with great coastal walks on its door-step. Hope to stay longer next time! Thank you
So lovely to wake up each morning to the lovely view and to see which freighters have come and gone. We walked a part of the coastal path every day and around each corner there was something new and awesome. Thank you for the lovely welcome and great place to stay!
Such an amazing apartment! We have stayed in many places in Wales over the years and this is by far one of our favourites! Thank you so much for providing such a well equipped and comfortable apartment with beautiful views! We can't wait to return!
What a fabulous appt, so peaceful, lovely views from the windows, even sat in the lounge in the evening, glass of wine watching the changing colours from the window, good walk Abereiddy to Porthgain, only approx 1 hour each way, fairly flat walking once on the path, watched seals sunbathing in some of the coves including 3 young white seals - gorgeous :) loved walking up and down Newgale Beach, cleanest beach ever seen, the weather was stunning, bit sun burnt end of Sept in Wales!! Had nice meal and pint at The Sloop, Porthgain 1/2 way stop on our walk :) Stunning walk from Newton, on the coastal path to Newgale. We will come back one day as cannot fail to relax and unwind, thank you for the wine, fudge and pint on arrival. Amazing :) xx
Excellent week helped by good weather. Spacious & nice apartment - just right for two.

Amazing apartment - the kitchen is in particular was excellent with everything we needed and more. The location is amazing: make sure to do some coastal path (we liked Whitesands to Porthgain, but it is very windy at the start!) Eat at the Shed in Porthgain and Ultracomida in Narbeth - lovely! Thanks for the great trip (and lovely wine and fudge).
Excellent week with coastal walking to take your breath away. Good food at Cambrain Inn, Druidstone Hotel, The Shed, Nov. 35 (Solva). Inspiring art at Druidstone Hotel, John Knapp-Fisher Gallery. All in all - a very good holiday. Thank you for the fudge, wine and welshcakes. Gracefully received.
