This beautifully restored cottage is less than a minute’s walk from the quayside of Lower Town and the bottom of the Gwaun Valley where the river Gwaun forms an estuary to the sea. This picturesque quayside is popular with kayakers and paddleboarders as the sheltered waters of the bay offer a perfect water playground. The quayside was also used as the setting for Dylan Thomas’ “Under Milk Wood”, starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, as well as the 1956 film version of “Moby Dick” starring Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab. Photographs taken at the time of filming adorn the walls in the characterful local historic pub, The Ship Inn, a roadside ale house dating back to the late 18th century. There are many beaches within a 20 minute drive including Cwm yr Eglwys, Pwll Gwaelod and Newport Sands to the north and Goodwick Sands and Abermawr to the South. St Davids is to the south west and on a clear day you may see dolphins and porpoises swimming in the harbour and along the surrounding coastline.
Fishguard Town Hall houses the Last Invasion Tapestry which commemorates the last invasion of mainland Britain by the French in 1797 and is a must see. You will find St Davids to the south west (15.9 miles) which is Wales’ smallest city, with its outstanding cathedral, town square and narrow streets full of small shops and good places to eat. Also Solva just a bit further on with its pretty harbour, an ideal place for walking, sailing and relaxing. The cottage is ideally situated for walkers of all abilities as the twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick are bordered by the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and surrounded by the National Park which can boast of being the only coastal National Park in the UK.
You will be spoilt for choice in this lovely part of Wales when it comes to shopping and eating out. There are numerous good restaurants, and cafes, wherever you go in North Pembrokeshire, as well as many specialist craft centres and gift shops. Don’t miss Melin Tregwynt Woolen Mill near Castlemorris with its huge selection of throws, cushions, gifts and clothes in wonderful colours; Jim Harries Woodturners in Mathry for beautiful hand crafted furniture and gifts; or the Newport Collective Art and Craft Centre. Travelling along the coast south of Fishguard, you will arrive at the tiny village and harbour of Porthgain, which is home to The Shed Bistro and the Sloop Inn, two locally renowned restaurants serving excellent food. After a delicious lunch, this is a perfect spot to begin a walk along one of the best stretches of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, in the direction of Abereiddy, a hamlet with a pebbly beach. On the way you will pass the Blue Lagoon, a disused slate quarry now flooded by the sea, which is always a bluish green colour due to the mineral content within the quarry. Recently the Blue Lagoon was the site of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series when fourteen of the world’s best divers dived from 27 metres above the Lagoon.
The Preseli Mountains provide a landscape of ever changing moods and colours depending on what time of year you visit, mysterious, rolling moors where sheep and ponies roam and an abundance of history and mythology, judging by the huge number of relics that remain – Neolithic burial chambers, Bronze Age cairns, stone circles, standing stones and Iron Age forts. If you fancy a change from walking the coast path, then walking in the Preseli Hills makes a refreshing interlude.
