A STYLISH COTTAGE IN THE PICTURESQUE HARBOUR OF LOWER FISHGUARD

Fishguard Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Sleeps 4 + extra child

The cottage is situated in a quiet square off a little country lane, in the fishing village of Lower Fishguard. The recently renovated semi detached cottage has been stylishly decorated and furnished to reflect its seaside location with a light and contemporary feel. The cottage has a twin and double bedroom; a lounge with an open fire & two modern sofas; a separate breakfast/ dining room. A brand new galley kitchen leads to a small sun room with table and chairs, overlooking the secluded garden - ideal for breakfast or an early evening drink. The cottage is a 2 minute walk to the picturesque harbour, and is a short walk or drive uphill to the main town of Fishguard. Lower Fishguard has a welcoming pub, a pretty harbour, and a lovely walk along the cliff tops either towards Fishguard or to the Old Fishguard Fort.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path: The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path includes some of the most spectacular coastal walking, scenery, & diverse wildlife in Britain. The path via Fishguard, Pembroke & Tenby takes you across beautiful white beaches, over cliff tops carpeted with spring and summer wild flowers, past colonies of seabirds, such as puffins, cormorants & gulls nesting along the cliffs, & seals, porpoises and dolphin swimming offshore.

There are Norman castles on the coast, hermit churches, picturesque harbours & villages, & the magnificent St David’s Cathedral in Britain’s smallest city where you can get boats to the offshore islands of Skomer, Ramsey & Caldey to see seals & nesting sea birds.

Tourist Attractions: Pembrokeshire has no shortage of leisure parks and places of interest, such as Oakwood Theme Park which now has the biggest wooden roller coaster in Europe; Folly Farm - Wales' premier farm attraction; Great Wedlock Dinosaur Park where you can meet dinosaurs in the wild. There are Wildlife Parks, Sports Parks, Golf Courses, Leisure Centres, & Art & Craft galleries where you can view & buy work from local artists, such as Workshop Wales, Oriel Glan y Mor Gallery, & Harbour Lights Gallery. The new Ocean Lab in Goodwick has a cyber cafe, & interactive displays & exhibitions.

The information box in the cottage has lots of leaflets to help you plan your holiday, and the excellent Tourist Information Centre in Upper Town will help with your enquiries.

There are so many activities and alternatives to the beach, or things to do if the weather is bad, that we can't imagine that you would ever be stuck for something to do in Pembrokeshire - the problem will be choosing what to do next!

Fishguard: Upper & Lower Town & Goodwick: Lower Town has a picturesque harbour with a pretty little quayside lined with fisherman's cottages - the location for the town of Llareggub used in the 1970s film of Dylan Thomas' play, Under Milk Wood, starring Richard Burton. There is also a yacht club, a welcoming pub, & lovely walks down along the Gwaun Valley, & up the hill to the Old Fort. It was here that the last invasion of Britain took place in 1797, & the town displays a tapestry depicting scenes from the battle.

Upper Town can be reached by car, or on foot, & has a wide variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, & galleries, 2 banks, a bookshop, a playground, and a small cinema.

A trip to Ireland is possible with the new high-speed catamaran link between Pembrokeshire and Rosslare, now just a short journey away.

The annual Fishguard International Music Festival is held in July, & in May there is the Fishguard Folk Festival. Fishguard makes a perfect holiday base, there's lots to do close by, & lots to explore further afield.

Quiet refuge in Lower Fishguard

  • 4 of 5
I would certainly recommend this lovely cottage as a quiet refuge. I went for a few days walking on the coastal path; the weather was excellent as was the local hostelry and with a comfortable place to return to it couldn't have been better. It was clean, well provided for in the kitchen (even the knives were sharp) with a nice little garden to sit in too. On our arrival, it was also very nice to find tea coffee and a pint of milk, a lovely touch.

A week to remember

  • 5 of 5
The cottage, which lies in a peaceful wooded valley just off the harbour, is extremely homely and cosy, with some lovely personal (nautical) touches to the furnishings and fittings. The small garden is a suntrap in the afternoon. The owner of the cottage provides plenty of useful information and has thought of all likely needs of her guests. The neighbours and locals (including Keith, the landlord of the Ship Inn, fifty yards away) are all very friendly. Shopping is up the hill in the main town, or over the headland in Goodwick. There are some lovely walks locally and in either direction along the coast - Strumble Head (we saw a seal basking on a rock), Dinas Island, Newport beach, St Davids Head - and, for the energetic on a clear day, a glorious view from the summit of Foelcwmcerwyn (highest point in Pembrokeshire) easily reached from Rosebush. For a decent meal out, be prepared to drive to places like Newport and Porthgain as the local choices are erratic. If you have continuous sunshine as we did your tan will be the envy of all your friends and you will have a holiday to savour.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time at Lower Fishguard. The cottage was exactly as the pictures show it and had lots of personal touches which are always appreciated. One big plus was blinds as well as curtains on the bedroom windows which was great with our two children, especially in the summer. Lower Fishguard is so sweet and we had lots of walks around the harbour and there is a small park for little ones. We also did the Marine Walk which goes right round the coast from Lower Fishguard to Goodwick, stunning view. Have never been to Pembrokeshire before and was amazed by how beautiful it is. There was plenty of information in the cottage for places to see which was a great help. One of our highlights was a walk along the coast at Strumble Head when we saw seals splashing around, again the views were wonderful. Best beaches that we found were Whitesands for surfing and body boarding which was about 30 minutes away just outside St Davids and a lovely beach in Mwnt which we were advised to see by one of the locals, it is just outside Cardigan, great for swimming. Fantastic fish and chips from Parry's in Fishguard and also a great Indian at the Taj Mahal in Fishguard. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this cottage is perfect.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here in October and found it a really comfortable and well equipped cottage. We spent many happy hours in front of the fire playing games. The neighbours were also really friendly and happy to recommend walks/things to do. Many thanks.

Returning to Fishguard after 30 years

  • 5 of 5
Returning to this lovely part of the world after 30 years, it did not disappoint! For anyone who enjoys walking coastal paths, a variety of beaches and coves, some easy driving and plenty of galleries and places to visit it is great.

And the cottage itself is a delight. Refurbished for 2009 in contemporary but homely style, tastefully colour-coordinated throughout with a seaside theme, we found it beautifully prepared and thoughtfully equipped down to the last detail. Plenty of information leaflets and local tips too.

Breakfast in the sun room, evening drinks in the pretty sunny garden, a stroll down to the quay and the wonderful view of the old harbour from the town above were highlights. Don't miss a drink at The Ship, a real old fashioned pub just down the road, or a drive to The Sloop Inn or The Shed in Porthgain.

Lower Fishguard is famous for being the setting for the films 'Under Milk Wood' and Moby Dick'. It has a beautiful fishing harbour which is one of the most photographed in the whole of Wales.

The cottage is conveniently close to all the amenities of the Market Town of Fishguard, including supermarkets, galleries, craft shops, pubs and restaurants, and Lower Town has a welcoming pub. It is a perfect base to explore all the wonderful towns, beaches, & sights of Pembrokeshire including St Davids (where you can take boat trips to Caldey & Ramsey Islands), Tenby, Cardigan, Solva, Porthgain. There is so much to see & do - you will need to return several times!

Other Activities: Bird watching, arts & craft galleries, boat trips.

Golf: Pembrokeshire has an abundance of first class golf courses to choose from. Many are coastal, with stunning panoramic views to inspire you and make your golf even more enjoyable. Choose between established clubs like Tenby, the oldest club in Wales or brand new courses like Trefloyne. There are excellent central parkland courses like Haverfordwest and Milford Haven, or pay and play courses like Mayfield. There is even one course that has its own grass landing strip, the Dawn Till Dusk course at Rosemarket.
