About Harbourside Cottage

North Pembrokeshire Fisherman's Cottage with wonderful views for holidays in Lower Fishguard

  • Look out onto sailing boats, ducks and gently lapping waves when you open the front door of this comfortable, relaxed waterside cottage.
  • Sleeping 6, Harbourside Cottage is newly renovated with a modern oak kitchen, underfloor heating and comfortable and custom made sofas. With traditional and contemporary local artwork on the walls, two of the bedrooms look out over the water and the third to the raised garden at the rear.  Sit out there and enjoy afternoon sun and al fresco meals.
  • You can bring your dog with you and walk out of the cottage onto the little quay road, up to the town or straight onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.



About The Area

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 holiday makers 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 needle workers 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 site 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 micro climate.
  • 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.  Look up Tenby Dinosaur Park, Oakwood Theme Park, Bluestone, Folly Farm Zoo, 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.
Year round holidays can be enjoyed in this characterful Pembrokeshire cottage once home to a local fisherman.

Why you love Harbourside Cottage
Hi Nick, We've just spent a week at your fabulous cottage in Fishguard, I've been to Fishguard many times as I bought an old boat there last year but I've not stayed overnight before. I must compliment you on the standard of the accomodation, it really is first class and you seem to have thought of everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. It was so nice to spend a week on the harbourside, with my wife and elderly parents, watching the comings and goings in and around the harbour. I hope we will be able to stay in the cottage again some time in the not too distant future. Thanks a lot. Regards, Gareth Hill

My wife, myself and Trixie the dog had the good fortune to stay in your beautiful cottage last week. 10/06 to17/06, and we wanted to place on record our appreciation. The manner in which you have developed the original building, whilst preserving its' character, does you great credit and coupled with the thoughtful and luxurious nature of the furniture and "equipment" easily gave us the feeling of being in somebody's home rather than a holiday rental, something to which many owners aspire but rarely pull off, in our experience. The most lavishly equipped cottage which we have stayed in over 20 years of renting 2-3 times per year and perfectly sited as a base for exploring Pembrokeshire whilst providing a quiet and peaceful haven at the end of a day's touring; you are very brave to allow strangers to share your property! Very many thanks, Rob & Alyn (and Trix), North Wales
