Well equipped cottage, kitchen appliances particularly good, love the new induction hob. Certainly ample crockery and cutlery. An eclectic mix of cooking utensils and pots.TV very clear with good reception. Shower wonderfully powerful. Bed comfortable Sitting room large with comfortable sofas. Nice lighting with the lamps.Bit awkward getting the car in the drive and it was not obvious where any second car could be parked. The road up is very steep and parked up, sometimes erratically with at least two big trucks - one on the corner.There may have been views of the harbour once but hedge side vegetation obscures much of them now.All in all, a lovely quiet place, among friendly people in a lovely part of the country. Taking a stroll down to the harbour at night was a lovely end to the day.

The cottage is very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Information provided before our stay about the cottage was really helpful. Location of the cottage is in a quiet location and really close to the harbour.

A tired cottage witn a lack of attention to detail - only one third of a toilet roll was left!

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for taking time to review the cottage. Much of this Victorian period cottage was repainted in May and many of the soft furnishings were brand new including all towels, cushions and throws. The owner is sorry, however, that you were disappointed. Unfortunately, as a result of COVID 19, the rules and guidance on comestibles such as tea bags, and even loo paper, was changed the owner was implored by government guidelines not to leave anything. This is designed to maximise hygiene and deep cleaning, something which the owner prides themselves on, as taking care of their guests is their absolute priority.

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

Year-round holidays can be enjoyed in this characterful Pembrokeshire cottage once home to a local fisherman. A local kayak centre set out from the Quay so why not book a paddle- Kayak King, and also based in Fishguard is a kayak expert Mayberry Kayaking who is absolutely fabulous for the more advanced paddlers.

The local waters are firstly fabulous, beautifully clear but care must be taken with tides and expert tuition is recommended to explore the fabulous coves and caves.

Fishguard is steeped in history and a great place to explore, with its galleries and cafes - try and find where the last invasion of the French was - yes the headland above Fishguard.

Plentiful wildlife with bird watching and sea life - seals call from the coves around the headland - so explore some fabulous coastline.

Lower Town Harbour, Fishguard

Lower Town is a tiny quaint harbour, once home to a thriving herring fishing fleet and now mainly used by pleasure boats. The picturesque quayside is lined with attractive fishermen's cottages and the small quay road leads to the Fishguard Bay Yacht Club, walk on past to discover Lower Fishguard's secret sandy beach. The sheltered, picturesque harbour at Lower Town is home to small boats of all sorts and a mixture of wildlife - even sometimes a visiting seal.

Fishguard Bay Yacht Club and the Ship Inn

This former flour store, converted by a small group of keen sailors in 1947, is now home to a little club with an enthusiastic sailing and rowing calendar. With a backdrop of spectacular Pembrokeshire scenery and a sheltered bay, it is an ideal venue for watersports enthusiasts of all abilities, both for sailing and socialising - check their website for details of events. The Ship Inn is a short walk away in the heart of the village. A historic pub which serves real ales, this is a popular pub with locals and holidaymakers alike.

Fishguard Harbour Town

Fishguard Town, at the top of the hill, has good local amenities with interesting independent shops and galleries, banks, a post office, internet cafe, supermarket, chemist, health centre, vet and filling station.

Fishguard Town Hall and The Last Invasion Tapestry

Fishguard Farmers Market is held in the Fishguard Town Hall every Saturday and a weekly market every Thursday, with delicious local produce and crafts. Upstairs in the Town Hall is the gallery containing the remarkable Last Invasion Tapestry. This amazing work was created by local needleworkers and is well worth a visit.

Yet y Gors Fishery, Fishguard

Keen fisher folk will enjoy the trout lakes at Yet y Gors, Scleddau. They are stocked with fish of 2 lbs and more up to double figures and there is fishing to suit everyone from the absolute beginner to the seasoned enthusiast.

Boat Trips

Boat trips to Skomer Island leave from Martins Haven on the Marloes peninsula and for Ramsey Island from St Justinians near St Davids. Expect exceptional coastal scenery and an abundance of breeding seabirds, in particular comical puffins, robust little Manx shearwaters, gannets and more. Atlantic grey seals are a common sight too, even dolphins can be spotted from time to time.

Pwllgwaelod Beach & Old Sailor's Pub/Restaurant

Pwllgwaelod is a sandy, west-facing beach with fabulous views across Fishguard Bay. The pub/restaurant, The Old Sailor's serves freshly caught local fish and is much acclaimed as an excellent place to eat. With no near neighbours, it is advisable to book at busy times.

Dinas Island and the Poppit Rocket Coastal Bus

Just up the coast, a short walk along the coastal path around Dinas Island (not actually an island) from Pwllgwaelod takes you to Cwm yr Eglwys. Overlooked by the remains of St Brynachs Church, this is a picturesque sheltered cove with its own microclimate. If you would like to leave your car behind, jump onto the local coastal bus service - the 'Poppit Rocket' - and travel up or down the coast. You can leave and join the bus at will and services run the length of the coastal path.

Newport Village

A little further up the coast is the popular village of Newport. This pretty village has a number of cafes and restaurants to suit a wide range of budgets. Visit the wide Blue Flag sandy beach at Newport or take your boat down to launch at the Parrog Sailing Club.

Pembrokeshire Golf Courses and Horse Riding

Just a short drive away visit the stables at Llanwnda, Goodwick for trekking on quiet lanes and bridleways. If beach riding is more your cup of tea, visit Nolton Riding Stables at Nolton Haven. There are several Golf courses nearby. The links courses at Newport and St Davids both look out over the most fantastic coastal scenery. If parkland is more your thing, visit Priskilly Forest or Haverfordwest.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

Further south in the county there are theme parks galore with diversions for all the family. Lookup The Dinosaur Park Tenby, Oakwood Theme Park, Blue Lagoon Water Park, Folly Farm, Manor Wildlife Park and Heatherton Sports Park for a good mix.

If you want to get in touch with the local farming and agricultural scene, the summer is dotted with agricultural shows. They are colourful, entertaining and informative.

Tenby & Caldey Island

The elegant seaside resort of Tenby with its walled town, cobbled streets, galleries, shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and five glorious sandy beaches is well worth a visit. Boat trips leave regularly from Tenby harbour to make the short cruise to Caldey Island home to Cistercian monks who make perfume, shortbread and chocolate for sale in the island shop.

See below for a selection of pubs, restaurants, and eateries near the cottage.
