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.

Set in an elevated position with panoramic views over Fishguard Bay, this charming holiday home is one of three self-catering apartments in a historic building near Fishguard (1.5 miles). It’s rumoured that Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor partied here when filming in the 1970s. Goodwick is twinned with neighbouring Fishguard, so there’s a shared celebration of food, sports and natural heritage. Find garden inspiration at the idyllic Dyffryn Fernant Garden (4.5 miles), discover The Last Invasion Tapestry gallery in Fishguard’s Town Hall (1.5 miles), and dine out and watch a show at the Theatr Gwaun (1.5 miles). Or venture down to dog-friendly Goodwick Sands (0.5 miles) and look out for seals bobbing about in the sparkling sea.

Head up to the property through communal terraced gardens with winding footpaths, and step into the welcoming entrance hall of this beautifully furnished property where you can store coats in the convenient cloakroom, where there’s also a WC. The kitchen is well-equipped with a large electric oven, fridge, microwave, and a handy washing machine to return sandy clothes to new. Relax and feast around the dining table, unwind on the sofa on cosy film nights – there’s a TV/DVD with Freeview. Soak in a roll-top bath with shower over in the stylish bathroom, and enjoy a full nights rest in the pretty bedroom featuring a four-poster bed and sea views.

Outside, there’s a large private terraced garden with a seating area and sea views. Parking is available for guests. Shops, pubs, restaurants, and a beach are within half a mile of the property.
