What a wonderful house! We have enjoyed the Old Police House & exploring the local area. Love the kitchen & garden. Overall a perfect house for a family & very well equipped. We have loved the local walks & the bakehouse at the bottom of the road is great for picnic sandwiches. We will be recommending to family & friends, & hope to return very soon. Thank you.

Firstly, what a unique and enchanting home. We have loved our time here. The owners have thought of everything, so much so our children did not want to leave. It's been a real privilege to stay here.

About the Area

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


  • Fishguard is a friendly, pretty little town, and a mecca for music lovers, with a brilliant Folk Music Festival at the end of May, the renowned International Classical Music Festival mid-July, and regular live music events throughout the year in local pubs and the nearby West Wales Art Centre. The Annual New Year celebrations, with live music in the Town Square, draw audiences from far and wide, and there is always something entertaining going on in Theatre Gwaun (five minutes' walk), with regular films, theatre productions and comedy nights.
  • Fishguard Farmers Market is held in the Fishguard Town Hall every Saturday and a weekly market every Thursday. There are delicious local produce and crafts on offer and the market is well worth a visit.
  • Upstairs in the Town Hall the gallery contains the remarkable Last Invasion Tapestry. Made in 1997 to commemorate the bicentenary of the 1797 invasion by the French - the last time the British mainland was invaded! This amazing piece of work was created by local needleworkers and tells the story in the style of that told by the famous Bayeux Tapestry.
  • Take a day trip to Ireland from Fishguard Harbour on the Stena Line and enjoy a day in Wexford.


  • Small North Pembrokeshire town just a couple of minutes drive from The Old Police House with a sheltered beach, ideal for bathing and messing around in small boats.
  • There is a useful Tesco Extra, cafe, with children's play area and gift shop, pubs, promenade and a long breakwater for a lovely walk.
  • Dolphins and basking sharks are occasionally seen off the beach.

Explore the Beautiful Gwaun Valley and Public Gardens

  • Visit the nearby Pembrokeshire Gardens open to the public. Penlan Uchaf has acres of landscaped garden including a fast flowing stream set high above the Gwaun Valley. Dyffryn Fernant Gardens, set in 6 acres of grounds and features courtyard roses, orchard, wild flowers, wood, walks and more.

Preseli Mohair Centre

  • Stock up on your winter woollies at the Preseli Mohair Centre in Mynachlog ddu. Fleece from home reared Angora goats is used to produce the garments and yarns for sale.

Bluestone Brewery

  • A family-run brewery producing a variety of different real ales. Enjoy a pint of the good stuff with beautiful views of the Preseli Hills and on brewing day you can see the brewers at work. Bottles and gift packs are for sale and acoustic music nights are held every Saturday.

Castell Henllys

  • Enjoy a guided tour around this recreated Iron Age settlement with its roundhouses built exactly where they stood over 2,000 years ago. Set within 30 acres of beautiful woodland and river meadows in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park - your dog is welcome too!

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • To make the best of your holiday and the Pembrokeshire coastline take time to enjoy the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path - definitely the jewel of the county, and a paradise for walkers. Just a short way from the cottage join the Coastal Path at Goodwick. Joining the path just two hundred yards from the house, walk South through Goodwick Village and on to a magnificent walk towards Strumble Head, and then further down to Porthgain, Traethllyfyn beach and Abereiddi, Abermawr and Aberbach.
  • This stretch of the coastline is some of the most dramatic with sweeping seascapes and cliffs. To the North is Dinas Head, a real lure for nature lovers, beautiful Ceibwr Bay, and many other natural wonders.


  • There is plenty here too for cyclists, with the National Coast cycle route passing through Fishguard, dozens of scenic circular routes crisscrossing the National Park, and the nearby Preseli Hills a playground for mountain bikers. Secure cycle storage is available in the lockable shed in the garden.
  • The dramatic coastal scenery, flower and wildlife are what make Pembrokeshire one of the world's best holiday destinations (National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire the 2nd best coastal destination in the world!). Splendid at all times of year, the explosion of colour with the spring flowers is something to behold!


  • Porthgain Village and harbour are a short drive away .Once a prosperous nineteenth-century industrial harbour which exported slate from local quarries at Porthgain and Abereiddi. Now the village is popular for water sport enthusiasts - boaters, rowers, fishermen and canoeists - their activities overlooked by relics of the industrial past.
  • Eating out at the popular Sloop Inn and award-winning Shed Fish Restaurant are a must.
  • Beaches at Abereiddi, Traethllyfyn, Abermawr & Aberbach are some of the finest in Pembrokeshire and tend to attract much lower visitor numbers being hidden away. To the south of Porthgain on the coast path you will reach the metal steps down onto Traethllyfyn beach - a wide sandy expanse (avoid high tide) great for swimming, walking the dog, picnics and games of frisbee! Newgale, Little Haven, Broadhaven are also within 20 minutes drive.

Newport Pembrokeshire & Nearby Beaches

  • Located at the foothill of Carningli, (Mountain of Angels) near the golden sands of The Parrog and many other Pembrokeshire beaches, ideal for families, sailors, walkers & bird watchers alike.
  • The seaside town of Newport, Pembrokeshire is overlooked by its Norman castle, has a bank, post office, library with internet access, filling station, chemist, doctor, great butchers, antique and health food shops to explore.
  • Newport Beach, a mile long fantastic stretch of golden sands which sweep around Newport bay - ideal for swimming, windsurfing, sailing and canoeing.
  • The Parrog A delightful stretch of coastline. The Coast Path twists and turns its way round to the old lifeboat station, sometimes on the beach, at times on the road and at one point crosses a fantastic causeway built of slates in a herringbone pattern
  • Cwm yr Eglwys is a picturesque cove a short drive away. Overlooked by the remains of St Bynach's 12th-century church, the sheltered sand and shingle beach is a great family favourite

Eating Out in Newport

  • Newport has been described as the gourmet capital of Pembrokeshire.
  • Llys Meddyg Georgian townhouse restaurant and cellar bar which serves the finest dishes made from locally sourced ingredients.
  • Caf© Blas at Fronlas good unpretentious food in a welcoming and cosy dog-friendly cafe.

Melin Tregwynt

  • A 10-minute drive brings you to the amazing woollen mill of Melin Tregwynt which produces the most wonderful patterns, which adorn some of the finest boutique homes in the UK.


  • A 20-minute drive will take you to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands - popular with families and surfers alike. The caf serves breakfast and evening meals in the summer season or why not enjoy a takeaway and sit on the beach to see the spectacular sunsets.

St Davids

  • Spend a few hours exploring the thriving ancient village city. Its charming huddle of shops, galleries, bars and restaurant are arranged around magnificent St Davids Cathedral and the atmospheric Bishop's Palace ruins. Book a thrilling boat trip out to the internationally important bird islands. RSPB Ramsey Island just 1 km offshore has impressive sea cliffs teeming with seabirds and the coastal waters around are frequented by seals, dolphins and passing whales.


  • The beautiful natural harbour at Solva is always on visitors agendas, with its pretty quay and yachts, lovely galleries, and gifts shops.

Boat Trips and Offshore Islands - Adventures on the beautiful clear waters

  • When you have seen the coastline from the coastal path complete the experience by going to sea. The Pembrokeshire coast is Britain's only coastal National Park and is a treasure-trove of birds and flowers, fish and marine mammals.
  • Take a trip round Ramsey Island. Boats leave from St Justinians and will take you around the Island and out to sea - or to land and spend the day wandering this amazing, rugged Island. Crews complete the experience by giving a wealth of local information - it is the experience of a lifetime!
  • Fishing Trips for Mackerel, Bass and even Shark can be arranged from St. Justinians or Solva. Blue Shark Fishing Trips comes highly recommended.
  • Boat trip from New Quay to spot dolphins off the coast

Outdoor Activities, Horse Riding and Golf

  • Pembrokeshire is a centre for water-based activities of all sorts. Home of the sport of Coasteering', it is also a magnet for surfers and windsurfers, sailors, canoeists and rowers. If you are skilled at your chosen sport the coastline is an open venue but if you are less experienced, the County is well served with centres offering safe, instructor-led activities.
  • There are golf courses to suit all levels of skill - Haverfordwest and Priskilly are within easy reach and one of the most dramatic small courses overlooking the lovely Whitesands beach.
  • At the back of St Bride's Bay, Nolton Riding Stable at Nolton Haven is a riding school with a difference. Even experienced riders find it hard to top the experience of riding through the surf on the lovely beach at Druidston Haven. And for beautiful rides through the Preseli Hills and on Newport Beach, evening pub rides and even 3-day trails, catering for beginners and expert alike, Crosswell Riding Stables are just a 20-minute drive away.
