Mike and Penny are perfect hosts - helpful, thoughtful and friendly. Location is superb and we were able to spend a long weekend without ever using the car as there are plenty of pubs within walking distance

We usually self- cater in Pembrokeshire so this was our first B&B experience in this most beautiful part of the world. Penny and Mike gave us a warm welcome and delicious breakfasts! We had "Skomer View" as our room and it did have the most wonderful view. The room was light and warm, and well equipped with everything we needed....

Thank you Penny and Mike for giving us such an enjoyable four night stay with you. "Skomer View" was a very clean, light room with excellent tea and coffee making facilities and a superb view.

Very happy that you enjoyed staying with us and Solva worked its magic on you. Hopefully our bees will produce another super Pembrokeshire gorse flavour honey for you to try when you next visit. By next season we will also have reinstated our own chickens in the back garden!

I had Ramsey View kingsize bed to myself for 3 nights in September, when doing some local coastal walks and spending time in St Davids, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my stay there… Lovely large, light en-suite room, with beautiful views. Extensive choice of teas just outside my room, as well as a very useful fridge for keeping any...

Super to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Such nice reviews really encourage us to maintain our level of hospitality. Hot tip: If arriving by bus ask the driver to stop by the Memorial Hall in upper Solva - then it is only about 300 yards up an incline to our door :)

Headed back to Solva for our regular visit. First time staying here, hopefully it won't be our last. Really warm welcome, clean spacious rooms and OMG what absolutely staggering views. Admittedly, a short stroll into the village but it is really well worth it. After a nice evening meal and a few beers what could be better than a short...

Just two rooms, so perfect for a quiet getaway. We stayed in Skomer room which has great views across the bay. The owners were welcoming, breakfast decent and a good location for exploring the area. Recommended!

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I was delighted to hear that you had such a memorable day on Skomer Island - complete with thousands of puffins and the island swathed in bluebells. May is the month! Hope to see you again next year.

We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of may in the Skomer view room. A cosy room spacious and clean, with great views out to Skomer. The breakfasts were lovely, the bed was really comfortable and Mike and Penny were perfect hosts. We highly recommend Pen y Banc for an enjoyable stay.
