    “The picture is deceiving, probably my fault I should have been more thorough but I thought I was booking a one floor cottage from the picture.”

    I booked this for a short getaway for my 92 year old mum having just lost her husband of 70 years. It turns out that this picture is the rear of the property, all the bedrooms were up a flight of stairs, very difficult for my mum and the bathroom was up and down steps even more difficult especially in the night. There was a tripping hazard from the archway of the lounge area on route to the kitchen and stairs to first floor. It was very cold in the cottage and no logs to light the fire until ...

    I booked this for a short getaway for my 92 year old mum having just lost her husband of 70 years. It turns out that this picture is the rear of the property, all the bedrooms were up a flight of stairs, very difficult for my mum and the bathroom was up and down steps even more difficult especially in the night. There was a tripping hazard from the archway of the lounge area on route to the kitchen and stairs to first floor. It was very cold in the cottage and no logs to light the fire until we asked for them, on lighting the fire the room was filled with smoke which played havoc with our breathing, not good for my mum's asthma. The kitchen bin was overflowing with rubbish from previous guests and there was evidence of rodent mess in the cupboard. The curtains over the door an archway are in need of cleaning or replacing. I tried several times to get hold of an agent to sort these problems and eventually got someone to come out to rectify, the bunch of flowers he brought to pacify us were a nice gesture but in no way made up for the disappointing start to our vacation

The property

This pretty pink holiday cottage is in the old fishing village and harbour of Lower Town, Fishguard.

The cottage is just a few minutes walk from the quay and slipway, where there are excellent launching facilities for sailors, windsurfers etc.

Local fishermen often provide fishing trips for those who wish to catch their supper or you can go and listen to tales of "the one that got away" in the local pub (The Ship Inn).A walk up the hill leads you to Fishguard town which has a good selection of pubs, eateries, shops and galleries.

Newport, St Davids, Porthgain, Strumble Head and Abereiddy are all close by.

The cottage is also ideally situated for the keen walkers (the coastal bus passes through the village) and is close to the beautiful and spectacular Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the Gwaun Valley.If you are holidaying with your dog, at low tide the harbour provides ample space for them to enjoy as too does the coastal path and the local Marine Walk which starts at Lower Town and goes on to Goodwick.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.
