Return to this charming apartment in the seaside village of Goodwick, after a day walking, biking and hiking the beautiful and rugged coastline of Pembrokeshire.

The twin towns of Goodwick and Fishguard are studded on the Pembrokeshire Coast, offering a unique destination for a special couple’s holiday. Elevated above the bay, this apartment is comfortable and welcoming with impressive views to enjoy over your morning coffee. The sandy beach is a short walk away, and you’ll soon lose yourself amongst the cliff-top trails as you navigate the countryside with a picnic in tow.

Reached via a series of winding footpaths and steps, the apartment is one of three similar properties. Compact yet cosy with quirky decor and lots of character, you’ll feel right at home as soon as you step inside. There is an open-plan living space equipped with a large sofa and a TV for evening entertainment, and the handy kitchenette and dining area provide everything you need for light suppers. The real treat is the bathroom with its Victorian-style bath, and the bedroom features a king-size bed and a large bay window. On sunny evenings, the shared gardens are perfect for evening drinks on the patio, and there are lots of uneven steps and footpaths to investigate.

Lace up your boots and walk the 1-mile route along the bay to reach the neighbouring town of Fishguard. Adventurous visitors will appreciate the array of activities available within 8 miles such as coasteering, sailing and surfing, and golf enthusiasts can play a round at the nearby club, 7 miles away. Further afield, St David’s, 16 miles away, may be Britain’s smallest city, but it is packed with things to do. Visit the cathedral, admire the ruined Bishop’s Palace, or soak up some artwork over an espresso before picking up some souvenirs.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a wonderful stay at Moon River apartment. On arriving we were stunned by the views and the wonderful secret garden. The house overlooks the bay in Goodwick and our rooms had exceptional panoramic views. The owner provided a warm welcome which extended to the treats left for our two dogs and the superb Welsh made toiletries were an added luxuRead morery for us. The apartment retains its original features and is packed with everything that you need. Comfortable & peaceful. Highly recommended. Hide
