Quay Street Cottages
Nos.33, 35 and 37 Quay Street self catering Cottages in Lower Town, Fishguard, are a row of three listed stone-built fishermen’s cottages that have been sitting on the quayside, gazing southwards across the peaceful and picturesque old harbour, for some 300 years.
Their picturesque setting has caught the eye of many an artist and cameraman, with the cottages themselves featuring in the films Moby Dick and Under Milk Wood and as the backdrop to numerous television programmes.
We also have 29 Old Newport Road, available, a beautiful little cottage, which has been fully refurbished, sleeps five and is situated up a quiet lane less than five minutes’ walk from the three self catering Cottages in Lower Town quay side.
We’ve carefully renovated each of these four cottages so that you get the best of both worlds – the original frontages and character, along with imaginative modern extensions and bright, fresh interiors that are finished to the highest standard.
No 29 Old Newport Road
Just up the old hill above Lower Town, you’ll find a little more peace from the bustle of the quayside in No 29 Old Newport Road, this beautifully refurbished and cheerfully decorated little cottage. Well-equipped and comfortably furnished for five, it’s a perfect base for a family holiday or an ideal hideaway for one seeking space and tranquility to write or walk or simply rest. Behind the house is a small, secluded, terraced garden, a calm sun trap or a pleasant spot for a barbecue.
“Great Cottage. Lovely, warm sun trap, even in winter!” Bruce & Julia, Sheffield (Christmas & New Year 2014)
No 33 Quay Street
This is the first in our row of three 19th century fishermen’s cottages on the quayside in one of Pembrokeshire’s jewels – Lower Town, Fishguard. It has been sensitively and imaginatively refurbished within the last ten years 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, No 33 Quay Street is a bit like a Tardis, much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside!
“Another great week living on lobsters and crabs. Superb weather, out on the boat every day. Our sixth year at Lower Town!” The Mansfield Family, Surrey (July/August 2014)
No.35 Quay Street
The middle and largest of our three stunning Quay Street Cottages. With its extendable dining table, seating up to 16, No. 35 is the ideal gathering point for your family and friends, should you arrange to book two or more of these cottages together for a special occasion. This cottage has been lovingly refurbished and strikingly decorated and furnished, without losing any of its original features and character. Full central heating and a wood burner in the sitting room makes No 35 Quay Street equally cosy and inviting for a smaller party or couple just wanting to get away from it all.
“Such a thoughtfully arranged cottage in a blissful location. We had a wonderful week. Thank you, I think we will be back!” Kate Jeppesen, London (October 2014)
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 – 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.
“Fabulous holiday – great cottage – lovely walks and good food. Thank you for all the thoughtful things in the cottage like extra crockery. What a perfect spot. Looking forward to coming back.” The Meardons, Wiltshire (May 2014)
If you are looking for a cosy retreat for yourself or plenty of space for your superb family get-together, one or all of our Quay Street Cottages will fit the bill. In all, there is enough room for 22 to sleep comfortably in two “units” of six each and two “units” of five each. And the bonus is that if you book all four cottages at one time, you will get one for free!
