Over an old stone bridge, through a gate that opens on your approach, to arrive at a pretty cluster of buildings known as Middle Mill. You live in the converted cattle byre and have easy access – through orchard and gardens – to river walks. Your L-shaped, one-storey, open-plan holiday house is flooded with light, and you’ll fall in love with the tranquillity and the views… dine outside on a balmy evening, lulled by the music of millstream and birds. Inside is a large sitting/dining area painted a soft yellow, with a new pine dining table and a welcome bowl of fruit; there are jolly rugs on wooden floors, books to browse, and a comfy sofa and chairs in front of a log-effect burner. To the right is a galley-like kitchen, well lit and equipped. Bedrooms are carpeted, fresh, new and en suite – and ideal for the very young (or very old) who may be wobbly on stairs. Bathrooms have fluffy towels and top-notch fixtures and fittings, and all is spotless and well laid-out. Such peace – yet you are within striking distance of sweet Solva’s shops, galleries and restaurants, and the joys of the coast.
