  • "Key safe did not work, had to open with a flint stone, rang owner on day of arrival and apparently she is aware, after looking through the visitors book this has been like it since 2019 so needs attention."

    No information at all in the cottage on where to put all your recyling on leaving, only one dust bin outside. All in all cottage was fine and the weather made it a lovely holiday.

  • "The old stables is a lovely, clean and comfortable cottage surrounded by beautiful scenery and tranquility."

    Upon arrival at the cottage, we were welcomed with a bunch of flowers, welsh cakes and a bottle of wine from the owners. The owners also left us useful items such as toilet roll, fresh milk, washing liquid. The cottage was immaculately cleaned and tidy. The location is great too. We found our way around pretty quickly and easily. The neighbours are very lovely and friendly too. I would definitely like to visit again.

  • "Beautiful coast walks and beaches."

    This is a wonderful stone cottage with modern decor and well equipped self-catering items available. Nice gas hob with oven, toaster, kettle, small fridge with freezer compartment and all pans and dishes. We were surprised with flowers, wine and dog treats for our dog. There is small enclosed garden looking onto an allotment and beyond hills of cattle and the sea. Right size for a couple plus single bed in loft for older child. Smart TV and WiFi. We enjoyed our stay very much. This is very quite spot but has restaurant and pub nearby. Also had medium size dog bed.

  • "Comfortable, convenient little cottage on outskirts of Fishguard."

    Only about 15mins walk to upper town and take aways if you don't fancy cooking. Turn up the hill and you are straight out into the Preseli hills with easy access to north west Pembrokeshire. Lovely area which we hope to visit again.

    ! ). The owner had left some "goodies" for us, including a few non-essentials. There were plenty of kitchen requisites, tea, coffee, sugar, milk etc and cleaning materials. All in all, one of the best prepared properties we have come across; and also the only owner in 40+ years of renting who has ever contacted us to say thankyou for leaving the property in a properly cleaned condition

    Cottage was very clean, down a very quiet lane, with view of the sea.? If taking a dog people need to be aware that the outside space is very small 8’x 2’. We did miss not having washing machine and dish washer,

    Thank you for your feedback comments. I can confirm that the size of the outside space is 15' x 6'. The property isn't advertised with a washing machine or dishwasher. We hope to welcome you back in the future Property Owner

  • "There was little space to sit out at the front of the property because our car had to be parked there otherwise it would have blocked access to an adjacent property."

    The access stairs to the mezzanine was very steep which would not be safe for a young child or a senior citizen. The property itself was fine and well equipped but we thought it was let down by the outdated bathroom. The electric shower and glass concertina shower door were really outdated and not in good condition. There was also a lack of support in the shower for older people getting in and out of the bath/shower.

The property

A delightful, stone barn conversion, situated in the coastal town of Fishguard, Wales.

The Old Stables boasts a wonderfully renovated, modern interior, with high-quality furnishings, whilst still managing to retain its lovely period features, such as the stone walls.

Step into the open-plan living space, with two large sofas to curl up on of an evening, whilst catching up with the day's events, or enjoying a romantic movie night.

The kitchen rests behind, with wooden units and sleek granite worktops, housing a range of appliances so you can cook up a delicious meal for the whole family, whilst the dining area provides space to enjoy your meals over a chilled glass of wine.

Retire to the large double bedroom of an evening and get some much needed rest for the days ahead, with ample storage space for your personal items.

There is a mezzanine snug area resting over the living space, with a TV, chairs and a single bed in case you have any extra guests wishing to stay.

Take a refreshing drink out to the gravelled garden area, or take advantage of the barbecue area and cook up a storm!

While you're in the area, take a drive towards the wonderful peninsula of Dinas Island, known for its spectacular walks and some of the finest views across the Pembrokeshire coast.

Or venture towards Dyffryn Fernant Gardens, spanning across six-acres of landscaped gardens with exotic plants from around the world, and a delightful library with the owners own personal selection of eclectic books to view.

Take a seat in the armchair and get lost in a choice of gardening, nature and artistic books.

The Old Stables is the perfect for choice for a coastal holiday to Wales.
