Full Details

The Old Chapel nestled in the heart of Solva, is a substantial building originally built in 1887 on three floors suitable to accommodate a family living space, a commercial space or indeed a combination of both. Just a couple of minutes away from Solva's picturesque natural Harbour and on the main street of this beautiful village this property has a great deal of potential which has been successfully exploited by the current owners who operate a successful Art Gallery, Photo Studio and Cafe at the location. Solva lies on the north side of St Bride's Bay, in North Pembrokeshire in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, just 3 miles from St Davids. Solva has a combination of residential homes, restaurants, pubs, art galleries and a shop and is definitely what one would consider as a picture postcard village. The Old Chapel consists of an entrance hallway, Gallery, Workshop, three bedrooms, a full bathroom, a cloakroom/WC and a Cafe/Conservatory on the ground floor and a huge open living space on the first floor with additional bedroom and bathroom. On the further mezzanine floor you will find a further bedroom overlooking the stunning open living area.


You enter The Old Chapel through the pointed arch doorway into a Mosaic tiled floor hallway with wooden panelled walls and plenty of light through the tall chapel windows. There's a spiral staircase to the first floor on the right and to the left the entrance to the main Gallery which is a large bright space with ample light from the four large windows. The gallery has a doorway leading into the Cafe/Conservatory which almost spans the length of The Old Chapel with a structure which is in-keeping with the style of the building. This space has a lot of character and houses the downstairs kitchen. On the other side of the main Gallery is a secondary gallery to the front and a doorway to the right which takes you to an inner hallway to two other rooms and a bathroom. From the secondary Gallery at the front, you can access the studio at the far right of the property which also runs the length of the property. Up the stairway from the main gallery you enter a large open space with vaulted ceiling, currently set up as a living space with kitchen area / siting area etc. Leading from this area is a further bedroom and bathroom with access to the back of the building. From the open living space there is a further stairway to to a mezzanine style bedroom.
