Solva Community Council • Cyngor Cymuned Solfach
Welcome to Solva!
Welcome to Solva, our beautiful harbour village near the westernmost tip of South Wales.
From its distinctive deep glacial harbour mouth with its preserved limekilns, in the west; to the beautiful bluebell woods to the east; from the former airfield, with its stunning walks, to the north; to the Iron Age hillforts on the Gribin headland to the south – we think you’ll agree that Solva has something to offer everyone. With a population of around 850 – and considerably more in the summer months – we are also home to many small businesses as well as art and craft galleries, lively pubs and restaurants and the Aidan Campus of Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi.
There’s also the pioneering charity Solva Care, the unique community festival known as ‘The Edge’, and Solva’s justifiably famous Easter Monday Duck Race and Bonfire Night fireworks display – as well as a raft of organisations that ensure the village is a vibrant place to live all year round.
Underlying all this activity is a proactive local community council – and this website contains all you need to know about Solva Community Council as well as other useful information for residents and visitors alike. Please make use of it, and enjoy your visit!
Find out more about Solva, its history, geology, wildlife, its particular and special features like its limekilns and gidels, and its military history.
You can also find out about Solva’s business and leisure organisations, and establishments in the village.
