Buildings and amenities

The settlement is centred on the "much restored" water mill with its iron overshot millwheel. A mill in this location appears on a 1760 map, though the current mill dates to 1781. It is Grade II listed.

A three-arch stone road bridge crosses the river nearby, also Grade II listed and possibly dating back to the late 18th-century (one of its arches is over the mill leat).

There is also a Baptist chapel, originating in the 18th-century, though the existing building dates from 1833.

A commercial woollen mill is in operation in buildings behind the water mill, producing woven goods but currently specialising in making stair carpets. It made a carpet for the Carmarthenshire residence of Charles, Prince of Wales. Now called Solva Woollen Mill, it was originally opened in January 1907 and claims to be the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire.
