No 37 Quay Street

 

Spring in Pembrokeshire, the most wonderful wild flowers, the unique Coastal Footpath and a really snug cottage on the quaint old harbour in Lower Fishguard – all make up the perfect recipe for a true break from every day life! This could be in No 37 Quay Street with its open fire and wood burner, its big windows looking over the harbour and its bright cheerful colours – and dogs are welcome here too.

This cottage is right on the quayside in this picturesque, traditional old harbour with launching facilitates for sailors, kayakers and windsurfers directly in front of the house. At low tide, a small beach emerges at the end of the quay – so ideal for families with small children looking for the bucket and spade experience without yet another car journey. The local independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes in the small town of Fishguard are just a short walk up hill, where there is also a thriving cinema/theatre, an excellent leisure centre with pools and gym as well as the un-missable Last Invasion Tapestry in the Town Hall on The Square.

Inside number 37, there is a feeling of space and light. The comfy panelled sitting room has a wooden floor with a warm rug, corner sofa, two easy chairs and wood burning stove. Television is available through the free WiFi, which will enable you to use your own accounts for Netflix, etc.

The dining room kitchen has a long, extendable table which can seat 12 or more people. An easy chair, free WiFi, well stocked bookshelves and an excellent wood burner (the same as in the sitting room) make this just the spot for the one who doesn’t want to watch the television!

 

The Cottage

No 37 Salters ScalesThe fitted kitchen is well equipped with cookware, crockery and cutlery for up to twelve people, alongside a larder fridge, freezer, microwave and dual fuel four hob cooker. At the back of the cottage is a shower, toilet and small washbasin, also a useful space for outdoor gear and dog beds, the recycling bins and washing machine.

Up the stairs, with a lovely old wooden banister rail around the landing, are three harbour-facing bedrooms – one with a king-sized bed, the tiny “pink” room with a 2’6″ bed and the third room with twin beds (one with a trundle bed underneath). The two divans in this room can be made into a super-king on request. The good sized bathroom has a large separate shower, a bath, toilet and washbasin.

There are two pulley airers, one on the landing and one in the dining area, which make up for the lack of an effective airing cupboard.

No 37 is amply heated by night store radiators, an open fire and a wood burner.  A basket of logs, sticks, firelighters and a bag of coal are provided for your arrival.

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. Cars can be parked directly outside against the cottage walls.

 

Lower Town

Lower Town’s tiny old harbour is still the base for local fishermen, and visitors often live off locally caught crab and lobster for a whole week in the summer! This unique little quayside is a paradise for energetic walkers, birdwatchers, sailors and keen “crabbers”. The main occupation of most children visiting the quay is to sit with bucket and line, baited with an old bone or bacon rind, catching crabs for hours and hours, finishing with a triumphant rush of crabs released down the slipway for the next day’s excitement. No child should grow up without this experience!

From Quay Street it is just a few minutes walk back along the quay to the historic Ship Inn for a pint of real ale and a warm local welcome. Alternatively, in spring and summer months, The Cafe on the Quay serves delicious coffee tea, snacks and light lunches. The world famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path goes through Lower Town and you can jump on the Poppet Rocket or the Strumble Shuttle to access the path further north or south and walk “home”!
