In the nearby village of Middle Mill, Solva Woollen Mill claims to be the oldest continuously working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire. 

The mill still produces carpets and rugs to this day, and visitors can enjoy a cup of tea in its tearoom before observing the looms at work.

Visit Pembrokeshire, the Welsh county’s official tourism website, highlights Solva Harbour as one of the area’s main attractions.

It states: “At high tide, the beach is a narrow strip at the head of the inlet but at low tide the harbour is completely dry with the exception of a stream that runs down the middle of the harbour, providing hours of entertainment catching fish, shrimp and crabs.

“If you head down the beach towards the mouth of the inlet a large stretch of sand is revealed with plenty of rock pools and caves to explore. The bathing here is very shallow and very good for small children.”
