Art & Accommodation at Haroldston House

Run by artist/editor Ian and architect/ceramicist Maria, this gorgeous Georgian townhouse – and its former donkey stable – lie in Pembrokeshire’s most picturesque harbour village of Solva.  Just a few minutes’ walk from the restaurants, pubs and shops of Solva, as well as the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, we are the ideal holiday base from which to explore the St Davids Peninsula and North Pembrokeshire.  We offer short-break self-catering accommodation, throughout the year.

Our two studios – the Blue Room and Stable Studio – are decorated in contemporary style with original timber and natural slate flooring, inspired colours and modern furniture mixed in with min-century classics – from Eames to Isokon, and Arad to Alessi.

We love art, and seek to showcase the work of 20th-century Welsh and Wales-based artists – including Sutherland, John Piper & Frank Brangwyn – as well as those of contemporary visual artists living and working in Pembrokeshire today, including owner Ian McDonald’s work.



Our two stylish self-catering suites

-the Blue Room and Stable Studio are each suitable for 2 people and

have generous beds with Egyptian cotton bed linen, towels, bathrobes and

slippers, log burners, great showers and free Wi-Fi.

Our Stable Studio is in the

former donkey stable in the garden, and is accessed through the main house. A

contemporary conversion, it is perfect for a couple.

Our new (for summer 2018) Blue Room is

formed out of one of the ground floor reception rooms of the Georgian house.

For all our guests, there are guide

books, maps and local information – as well wonderful art – to enjoy in

the public areas of the house.



To ease you into your holiday, and before you head out to explore the wonderful, local, Pembrokeshire produce, we provide you with ‘starter breakfast’ provisions in your fridge, tailored to suit any dietary restrictions.

We have been awarded 5 stars in our food hygiene inspection.


There is parking on the forecourt for one car for the Blue Room guests, and more free parking just opposite for Stable

Studio guests.


We are carbon-neutral, offer discounts if you arrive by public transport and have a (free) 3-pin electric car charging point on the forecourt for Blue Room guests..
