is there any chance you can try starting it with a "Starter type battery charger" or from a neighbours car with jump leads. As it might just be a case of the battery not having enough charge in it to fire up the starter motor. Anyway I would first make sure it ain't a battery issue before buying a new starter motor.

or a bad earth connection

if you do replace - the solenoid will come as part of the motor.

sounds like your solenoid is ok but if your battery is ok then its the secondry windins in the motor so new motor or take it to an auto electrian.
