I’ll never tire of going to Pembrokeshire, particularly because of its outstanding coastal trail, part of the continuous footpath around the whole coastline of Wales. For this visit, I based myself in Solva, a lovely harbour village boasting three pubs, including the very atmospheric Ship Inn. The coast path runs right through the village and the natural harbour lies between two spits of land. On the second of my three-night stay, I went off to the Druidstone Hotel where a friend, Dan Messore, was playing with his three-piece, The Kindling Trio. The other nights were spent in the cosy embrace of the Ship, where it wasn’t hard to get chatting to a friendly locals and visitors alike. Two walks provided the daytime focus; Abereiddy to Porthgain and then Stromble Head to Abercastle. The weather conspired to be gorgeous, the seals had lately pupped, so I was delighted with the end of my week in Wales.
