This romantic hideaway lies in Goodwick in North Pembrokeshire. It’s ideal for couples who want to explore the beautiful coastline and countryside of West Wales.

A cosy, welcoming apartment for two, this delightful holiday retreat is perfect for a couple seeking a comfortable getaway with far-reaching views. Overlooking Fishguard Harbour and the broad sweep of Fishguard Bay, this charming bolthole is part of a group of historic properties set in an idyllic elevated position along a beautiful part of the Pembrokeshire coast. Featuring a four-poster bed and a large, terraced garden with a balcony providing an ideal space for relaxation, this warm and inviting property is great for exploring the stunning countryside surrounding the bustling twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick.

 

Entering the property via shared gardens, the inviting entrance hall takes you through into the main living areas. The cosy open-plan lounge/diner is a great space to unwind in at the end of a great day out, and the fully equipped kitchen, with patio doors opening on to a decked area, is a pleasure to cook in. The apartment also features a stylish bathroom with a roll-top bath as well as a charming bedroom with an attractive four-poster bed. Patio doors lead you out from the lounge and onto the balcony where you can sit back and enjoy al fresco drinks or a meal as you take in the view across the bay. Also outside, the extensive garden is set over several levels with winding footpaths and a variety of shrubs and plants adding a dash of colour.

 

The twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick offer a range of great shops, pubs and restaurants, with local attractions including the picturesque Dyffryn Fernant Garden (5 miles), Theatr Gwaun (1.5 miles) and The Last Invasion Tapestry (2 miles). You can spot seals from Goodwick Sands, follow the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, visit Pentre Ifan (13 miles), explore the Preseli Hills and Castell Henllys (both 13.5 miles) or discover the ancient valley of Cwm Gwaun (7.5 miles).

The apartment was absolutely lovely. Spotlessly clean and perfect for those that like a little quirky. Seaview from the kitchen and conservatory. Two lovely decked areas. But not for people with mobility issues as the walk up and down is quite steep. But that's all part if the secret garden experience

The view is amazing! Be aware that the balconies mostly have sun in the morning and day, not in the evening (if that's something you care about). Be fit and prepared to walk up and down lots of hills and stairs. Very nice well equipped kitchen and quite a walk to get to pubs (except one nearby, that we didn't really like - horrible food) - so if yoRead moreu like to stay in and cook it would be absolutely perfect.
