Directions to Ty Talcen

I will assume that you have approached the village from the east – i.e. you have come through Haverfordwest and taken the A487 to St David’s (Ty Dewi).

Once you have  passed through Newgale, alongside the pebble beach (great surfing and lessons available) over the bridge, then up the big hill, some 3 miles further on you will reach Solva. The village is split into two distinct halves, Lower Solva and Upper Solva.

Travelling from Newgale you come down a steep hill into the lower village with it’s brightly coloured houses, shops, pubs and restaurants. Following the road takes you up the hill, through a cut, past the Royal George on the left, and into Upper Solva. 200m past the Royal George there is a small car park on the right opposite the Memorial Hall, (nearest public telephone to Ty Talcen). Start to slow and indicate right.

A further 50m on, take the RIGHT FORK off the main road – signed Whitchurch – just before the church and the lay-by. (If you pass the local grocery shop on your right you have gone TOO FAR and will need to turn round!).  50 m up this road turn RIGHT at Mount Seion Chapel.  Carry on up the hill. You are getting close…… There is a house painted white on the left and then one painted white on the right . Just past the 2nd white house there is a turning off the road to the RIGHT and this is the entrance to Ty Talcen (there is a sign on the wall just inside the entrance).

Straight ahead is a garage with a white door – Ty Talcen parking is against the gable end of Ty Talcen – on the right viewed from the road – please leave sufficient room for vehicular access straight through to the garage and adjacent property ‘Ty Golchi’.  The main entrance to Ty Talcen is down the small set of steps – ½ glass door.
