  • "Such a cosy cottage in a wonderful location, tucked away just behind the quay in Lower Fishguard, surrounded by trees and little cottages."

    It's comfortable and quiet and had everything we needed, the garden was just perfect when the sun shone (it did sometimes!), and we could walk to the sea, the cliffs and the upper town easily. We chose the cottage because it had room for a 5.5 metre sea kayak in the garden (which limits your choices!) and are so glad we did.

  • "The Cottage was comfortable if a little unloved."

    Well equipped kitchen, and nice to have use of sun loungers and bbq stored in the shed. Garden was great and the terrace was lovely and sheltered, it was so good to enjoy our meals outside, weather permitting, a lovely sun trap . Great base for exploring the lovely walks and scenery .

  • "Owners made a special effort to make us welcome with a good welcome pack and everything we needed in the cottage and we thank them for that."

    A couple of issues. The cottage smelt rather unpleasant, which wasn't nice. The hot water was silly scalding hot. Fire place not swept. No washing up liquid.

  • "Sweet, quaint cottage."

    Comfortable bed but we had to turn it 180 degrees otherwise it was significantly lower at the head end. No power on the otherside of the room so we had no bedside lights. Perhaps the bed should have been put on blocks to even it out. Other than that it was a lovely cottage and well equipped but a baking sheet for pizzas would have been handy! Great location in Lower Town near a lovely pub and the harbour, walks etc yet set away from the main road.

  • "The cottage was in a great location close to the harbour."

    It was well equipped and had a great enclosed garden for the dog. It was however, dirty and there were cobwebs everywhere. It was dark and had very low ceilings.The bathroom was tiny and had extremely poor ventilation which meant it was getting mouldy.

  • "Cosy little cottage in a good location for Lower Town in Fishguard."

    . Ideal for 2 or 4 people, but 6 would be very cramped! (There was just 2 of us)

  • "The cottage was extremely clean you could smell it very reassuring ,we did still take our own bleach and wipes."

    The heating was a bit tricky but ok in the end . The hosts did make sure we were ok which is always good. Fishguard is a gorgeous little fishing harbour very friendly ,The little pub the Ship was very good again very Covid clean very good with spacing. Would highly recommend we have a dog Newport Beach fine with dogs and St David’s beach great but can only take dogs at the end of September . We enjoyed it so much we are going next year

  • "Milkwood Cottage was exactly what we were hoping for!"

    It had everything required to be comfortable and cozy, the kitchen had everything you could need, the shower was great and the parking easy. The cottage has outside seating at both front and rear and both areas are secure for dogs. The cottage's the location is fabulous! We loved the walks on our doorstep with our dog, the convenience of the shops at the top of the hill and the choice of pubs within a ten minute walk. Everyone we met was super friendly and keen to chat. A wonderful cottage and a wonderful place - was very reluctant to leave!

  • "Having been led to believe that additional measures would have been taken re Covid - there were none!"

    Nothing had been removed eg books etc and especially foodstuffs left by previous guests/owners. Only windows were wide open rendering the cottage rather damp. It took us 2 days to get the cottage warm. It was so dirty I was compelled to clean the kitchen thoroughly and wipe down surfaces throughout the cottage. As for cobwebs .......and slugs...... Despite being chocolate box on the exterior this cottage is badly in need of redecoration and refurb. However crockery, cutlery, kitchen appliances were good.

    Dear Mrs Jan Vigar, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are sorry that your expectations were not meet. Please be assured that we take the Covid situation seriously hence the provision of soap and antibacterial hand gel in the welcome pack. We work with a reputable Fishguard cleaning company and will be sharing your feedback with them. We do leave books and sundries at the cottage and some guests find this useful, however, we will review our approach based on your and other guests` feedback. We are in the process of renewing the cottage and installed, at the beginning of the year, a new set of storage heaters; one in the living room, one in each bedroom and an induction heater in the kitchen in addition to the open fire. We are somewhat surprised that these did not heat the cottage adequately. When we visit in January, we will carry out a full test. Jon & Rahsan Property Owner

  • "We loved Milk wood Cottage and were really pleased to find it had a lovely enclosed and private garden which made up for the living room being quite dark."

    It is very well equipped and it was great not having to buy things like washing up liquid, cooking oil and salt/pepper etc. The bed was SO comfy and it was really peaceful with very little road noise or passing traffic. Thank you for a lovely week - just wish it could have been longer!

    Dear Mrs Sarah-Jane Cross, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of the garden. We do recognise that the design of the cottage means that the front room does not get a huge amount of natural light so are thinking about how we can improve the lighting to compensate. We hope you have the opportunity to stay longer next time. Jon & Rahsan Property Owner

The property

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

The cottage is just a short walk from the quayside and slipway, where children often gather with their buckets and crab-lines.

There are fishing trips for those who wish to catch their supper or you can listen to the Fishermen’s tales of "the one that got away" in the Ship Inn whilst enjoying a refreshment. A walk up the steep hill leads into Fishguard town which has a selection of pubs, eateries, shops and galleries.

A little further afield are Newport, St Davids, Porthgain, and Strumble Head each with its own charm.

The cottage is perfect for walkers (the coastal bus passes through Lower Town) and it’s close to the stunningly spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the Gwaun Valley. If you are bringing your dog, at low tide the harbour has plenty of space for them to enjoy as does the coast path and the local Marine Walk which starts at Lower Town and leads round the headland to Goodwick.
