There were 4 adults in our party. The accommodation was spacious and there was more than adequate seating and comfy sofa areas.

What a lovely house & garden, in a great position.Light,airy, comfortable & well designed space. Well equipped kitchen.The patio was a very relaxing place to sit in the evenings and watch the activities in the bay.No problem with parking (just outside the house) as most visitors used the main car park down by the river (only a few minutes walk away). Friendly welcome at traditional local pub (The Ship Inn) & access to yacht club for drinks. Good crab sandwiches at cafe (all within 2/3 min walk). Good quality produce at farmers market (Fishguard Sat am). Also a large co-op in Fishguard & Tesco's in Goodwick.Stunning views along the coastal path & easy drives to interesting towns & beaches.We had a great holiday and found the whole area extremely friendly. We have never returned to the same property, but Quay House would be an exception.

We enjoyed our family Christmas break here hugely. The house is beautiful and was well equipped for our Christmas dinner! We were warm and cosy on the cold winter days too. Fishguard is a real delight and we hope to return in the near future.

Stayed here in June, really want to go again, the whole area is perfect, the house location is stunning!! The local pubs are old school and just brilliant! The ship Inn, and the Fishguard Arms were my favourite! Get to the Fishguard Arms Thursday nights, the barman is a class act, also the owner is a top bloke!

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. The setting is just perfect, the house is well equipped and we were so lucky with the weather too. Just what we were looking for on a holiday and leave reluctantly feeling refreshed.

Lovely week here at Quay House. Caught lots of fish at the end of the quay. Really relaxing just sitting watching the view out of the windows. One of the best cottages we have stayed in and we have been coming as a family for 20years!
