Very well equipped and comfortable property with fantastic views from conservatory and two decks. Ideal location for Pembrokeshire coastal walking yet close to facilities in Fishguard. There are steps and paths down to The Secret Garden due to its elevated location (hence the views) which elderly or infirm guests might struggle with. We shall certaRead moreinly return. Hide
