Why you love Quay House
What a beautiful property in such a lovely location! Lots of space for everyone especially the kitchen,(serious kitchen envy!!)This property certainly seems to be the envy of lower town, and rightly so!
Mr and Mrs Lee
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!
the Jacksons
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.
Nicky, Steve ,Roger and Elliot, Petswood Kent
Fantastic cottage, we have really fallen in love with it! Will definitely be returning next year.
Brown and Widdows families
WOW! From the internet we thought it would be good but reality was even better! One of the nicest places we've stayed in- and we've stayed in a lot of places.
Steve and Julia Lymn
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.
Angela, Graham and kids
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!
