About Sam Sibbald
My family have lived in Solva for over 70 years. I used to live just a few hundred yards away from 23 glanhafan. I now live away with my own young family but we return regularly as we love the area so much.
Sam Sibbald purchased this Cottage in 2011

We bought the property with a view to live and raise my children there. We dedicated 2 years to completely renovate ithe cottage.We and adore it! Work commitments have resulted in us moving away so we hope others can enjoy what a great house it is.

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. It is has everything you could need and is in a fantastic location to explore Pembrokeshire.
A lovely week in Solva
The house was delightful. It is beautiful and really well set out. We loved staying there for the week. Everything you could need is there which was great and made travelling with children easier. The location is perfect and we enjoyed lots of walks down to the harbour and exploring the local area. The communication before our stay was wonderful as well. So thank you, and we hope to stay again.
