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.
