A trusted customer - 25th May 2018

The house is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable in every way, and it is fantastically located.

Thomas Schmidt - 6th April 2018

Comfortable house with wonderful with kitchen! Great location- we shall return!!

A trusted customer - 20th March 2018

Quay House is lovely with superb views of the quay. The scene changes as the tides come and go and birds feast on the shoreline at the waters edge. The small town of Fishguard is interesting with a lovely friendly coffee shop. There are nature reserves nearby which are worthwhile visiting. The house was recently modernised and the huge kitchen with dining and sitting areas allowed us all to relax and chat to each other whilst cooking meals. The kitchen was well supplied with equipment. Everything in the house was clean and looked newly decorated. Our only criticism is that the two double beds were not very comfortable. There was a slight water heating problem but the owner came and fixed it for us straight away.

The house and location could not be better.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!
