Overview

About the property

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.

Note: Not suitable for children

Location

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

choice of hotels, pubs, restaurants and cafes with several pubs

providing entertainment at weekends. The town provides many superb

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

town is served by the Fishguard town service bus, which runs alternatly

from Harbour Village or Stop-and-Call to Fishguard town hall. Two

Fishguard - St Davids bus routes also pass through the town.

Lota Park is a place where both adults and children can relax and play.

A new Leisure Centre provides facilities for the young and old and is a

refuge in wet weather. Theatr Gwaun in West Street has a cinema as well

as regular live events.

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

centenary.

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

numerous just off the coast.

From Goodwick explore tiny hamlets on the Pencaer peninsular including

Llanwnda and the church of St Gwyndaf and visit the scene of the French

landing at Carreg Wastad and the lighthouse at Strumble Head.
