No 33 Quay Street

This is the first of the row of 19th century fishermen’s cottages on the quayside in one of Pembrokeshire’s jewels – Lower Town, Fishguard. It has been sensitively and imaginatively refurbished and provides the most perfect spot for a happy, comfy family holiday or a complete retreat from a busy city life.   Full of character and interest, the cottage is a bit like a Tardis, much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside!

Entering through the front porch, there are two big rooms either side of the hall. To the left is the sitting room, furnished with two sofas and an easy chair, an unusual cupboard of considerable interest, bookshelves with an eclectic collection of reading matter, Free Sat TV and DVD Player and a wood burning stove.

No.33 Door ReflectionTo the right of the hall is the kitchen/dining room. Here there is a huge “chimney fawr” with wood burning stove, free WiFi and a bookcase full of yet more books, games and jigsaws for those occasional wet days!   The dining table seats 8+.   The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with dishwasher, larder fridge, freezer, microwave and a dual fuel cooker (double electric oven and six ring gas hob). There is ample glassware, crockery, cutlery and kitchenware to feed twelve people.

At the back of the cottage is a small wet room with loo, shower and washbasin and a large utility room with washing machine, an extra fridge/freezer, a big sink and the central heating boiler and controls.

The small yard outside at the back catches the morning sun, wonderful for those summer breakfast times. It’s also an ideal storage spot for kayaks and small dinghies.


The Cottage

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a big bathroom, with toilet, bath, washbasin, a large shower and an excellent airing cupboard.  All bedrooms have harbour views. The main bedroom has a double bed, plenty of cupboard space, a walk in wardrobe and a wash basin. The middle bedroom above the front door is tiny but has a three foot single bed. The third bedroom has twin beds, (which can be put together as a super-king with advanced notice!) and a large chest of drawers.

The main attraction for children coming to these cottages is the opportunity to spend hours catching crabs on the slipway just outside. Unofficial competitions are run within families and with neighbours, for who can catch the biggest crab or the largest number, as well as more official events run by local organisations on high days and holidays. Grown ups make do with putting the garden chairs out at the front on the quay, opening a bottle of wine and watching the world go by. With the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path a minute from the cottage, there is so much to do within walking distance, not to mention further afield, that most people have to come back again to try something new next time!

We have had guests who are wheelchair users and find this cottage very satisfactory as they can sleep downstairs in the back of the sitting room.

All beds will be made up with fresh linen; tea towels & hand towels are provided. Please bring your own bath and beach towels. A camp cot, high chair and stair gate are available on request although cot bedding is not provided. Sticks, firelighters and a basket of logs will be available on your arrival. Cars can be parked directly outside against the cottage walls.



The shops, cinema, Tourist Information Centre, pubs, cafes and restaurants of Fishguard are a brisk fifteen minute walk away. Market Day is on Thursday and the popular Farmers Market runs throughout the year on Saturday morning, both held in the Town Hall on the main Square. Less than five minutes walk away is The Ship Inn in Lower Town, the source of a good pint and much local colour and character, while along the quay is Fishguard Bay Yacht Club and, in the spring and summer months, The Cafe on the Quay, serving light lunches and teas.
