Set in an elevated hillside position enjoying superb panoramic views
over Fishguard Bay towards Dinas Head, Bay View is a magnificent
building which has been divided into three self contained holiday
apartments, each furnished and equipped to a high standard and ideal
for larger families wishing to holiday together but retaining their own
privacy. (See also J394 Bay Watch and J395 Moon River ). The Secret
Garden apartment has its own large private terraced garden with seating
areas. The owner is prepared to offer an extra bedroom to sleep 2
further people on a pro rata basis and subject to availability. Access
to the apartments is on foot through the communal terraced gardens,
with steps and winding footpaths (which may not be suitable for elderly
or disabled persons). The property has an interesting historic past,
built in the early 1900s for a director of the Great Western Railway.
It is also rumoured that Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor enjoyed
private parties at Bay View whilst filming 'Under Milk Wood' at
Fishguard in the early 1970s.

Fishguard, Goodwick and Lower Town form a close and friendly community
in north Pembrokeshire. The area is famous as the location of 'The Last
Invasion of Britain' when in 1797 French troops landed nearby. Local
heroine Jemima Nicholas captured many of the invaders single handed and
the Frenchmen later negotiated their surrender at the Royal Oak inn and
laid down their arms on Goodwick Sands.The invasion is commemorated by
an imposing and internationally famous tapestry which is on display at
the Last Invasion Gallery in the Town Hall.
Fishguard stands on an imposing headland commanding superb views of the
bay. It is the main shopping centre of north Pembrokeshire with two
small supermarkets and family-run shops and businesses. There is a

walks including the Marine Walk which has outstanding coastal views.The

Goodwick was just a cluster of fishermen's cottages until the early
1900's when work began on creating a harbour to handle transatlantic
crossings. These hopes were short-lived but Fishguard Harbour became,
and still is, a major and thriving sea crossing to Ireland with Stena
Line operating ferries to Rosslare. In 2006 the Harbour celebrated its
Goodwick has a number of shops, hotels, pubs and cafes and the
Fishguard Bay Hotel (once a Great Western Railway Hotel) stands
imposingly overlooking the bay. Goodwick Beach, a winner of the
'Seaside Award', is a favourite with families and the Ocean Lab on the
Parrog has a cyber cafe, coffee shop, a soft play area and tourist
information centre. Goodwick Moor is a Nature Reserve and designated as
a site of scientific interest.. The lifeboat is based in the harbour
and seals and dolphins are sometimes seen in the bay but are more
