Bwthyn Cei

Right on the old harbour at Fishguard, Pembs

about the property

A 5* holiday cottage directly on the waterfront of Fishguard old harbour. Sit on your patio and watch the fishing boats come in, or walk to good food…or further along the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park footpath.

Simply one of the finest waterfront properties in Wales. A fabulous contemporary conversion on the water's edge at the picturesque old harbour of Fishguard. The location with the harbour on your doorstep (literally!), and the fabulous views of the sea and the little fishing boats below are idyllic. See inside here.

This cottage sleeps eight - perfect for families or two sets of friends - it has the added luxury of en-suite bathrooms with the two double bedrooms, along with a seperate family bathroom for the twin rooms.

There is a large decking area to enjoy a glass of wine or dine al-fresco, where you can simply relax and drink in the views, while the kids enjoy crabbing from the harbour wall. You can spot (binoculars supplied!) all manor of sea birds and wildlife from the large contemporary open-plan living area without even venturing outside. This, however, would be a great shame as there is plenty to explore in the lovely county of Pembrokeshire.

Just a short walk up the hill will take you to Fishguard town and to the galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants that this lovely little seaside town has to offer - a little further afield, there are the wonderful Pembrokshire beaches and St. Davids the smallest City in the UK. You could also take a day trip to Ireland from Goodwick Harbour (2 miles away) if you so wished!

A warm, very nicely furnished and well-equipped cottage bang on the quay. For those who like to cook on holiday, the kitchen is especially good. Great double view of the harbour. Watching the Under...

customer reviews for Bwthyn Cei

A warm, very nicely furnished and well-equipped cottage bang on the quay. For those who like to cook on holiday, the kitchen is especially good. Great double view of the harbour. Watching the Under Milk Wood DVD (supplied) in conjunction with your visit is a must. Have fun spotting all the buildings in the film round you & retrace the steps made by Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole et al. "Time passes" ... but the view has essentially stayed the same. Boats still bob on the "sloe-black, slow black, crow black" sea - though the local inhabitants of this "lulled & dumfound town" are sadly rather thin on the ground now. Holiday lets abound. A good base for a relaxing holiday - walking, rock-pooling & reading.

Beautiful house - family of 7 had plenty of space. Lots to do but just a gorgeous spot to chill out in. Sons all loved crabbing on the doorstep. Delicious local fish and chips. Plenty of everything... properly equipped for 7 people if that makes sense without need to be constantly washing up. Lovely touch of a towel for our dog too. Very special spot. Came back thoroughly rested!

Wonderful harbour property with view of the estuary out to the sea.Superb design of the interior that allows light to flood into the lounge, kitchen and dining area. The large balcony area with excellent furniture was enjoyed by us all weekend as we were blessed with sunshine every day.We will surely return.Many thanks Ian Ferris

Such a gorgeous house and location. Very quiet tranquil area. Small childrens park a few steps away and a small oldy worldy pub. Ample parking and a lovely coastal and woodland walk from the front door. The house was furnished and finished to a very high standard..plenty of space, comfortable spotlessy clean and well equipped. Everything had been thought of to make our weekend just perfect. We already planning our next visit! Loved it.

Fantastic few days in this very relaxing cottage. Sitting on the balcony watching the comings and goings in the harbour was so relaxing. Many thanks to the owners, such a well equipped cottage.

Perfect family holiday home! The stunning house is by far the best spot on the harbour with unrivalled views, with crab fishing on the doorstep. The house was well equipped and has lots of lovely extras like books, games and DVDs and its own kayak! Perfect location for exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline, especially on a kayak trip leaving from outside the house! The whole family thought it was the best house ever and We will definitely be back!

Second visit to cottage and it doesn't disappoint. The views from the lounge/ balcony are so good that it took us all some effort to get out and about! It was really nice to have use of a canoe and have a paddle round the harbour. Nice touch that doggy treats were included in our welcome basket...

Exactly as described. Excellent location, clean and comfortable. The high chair, cot and baby walker were a bonus. The open plan cooking facilities and sitting room with a superb view are great for families. I would also recommend Kayak King as a way of seeing the coast. They are good value and leave from the car park in front of the house. There are plenty of good walks, directly from the house. Great holiday venue.

What a fantastic place - one of the best UTT places we've stayed in - peaceful location, well equipped and stylish property, we even got the weather - sitting outside watching the boats and kayaks go by - bliss. We'll be back !

Wonderful location and views. A lovely place for a relaxing break. The owner was very thoughtful and made sure she was setting up the correct configuration of rooms before we arrived and there was even a little treat waiting for the dog! many thanks for a smashing break.

What a great cottage! Plenty of space, comfortable and warm, everything you need provided for, a large open plan kitchen so that you can enjoy the beautiful views at any time thanks to the large windows, full of light and very nice pictures on the walls. And of course having a nice cup of tea on the patio enjoying the sun and the sea was the icing on the cake! Lovely paths near the cottage, many places to visit, plenty of sunshine, very friendly people all around and a great fish and chips in Fishguard. What more do you want?

What more could one ask for - sitting on the balcony in the afternoon/early evening sun, watching the sea come and go and the boats bobbing up and down in the harbour? Perfect The modern comfortable accommodation was just what we hoped for, nothing more was needed, thank you.

A splendid house in a lovely location. Warm and comfortable over a chilly March weekend. Lower Fishguard is a bit of a hidden gem - gorgeous little harbour with dinghy and canoe launching, plus plenty of parking. Perfect base for exploring Pembrokeshire. The Ship Inn (100 yards away!) is an absolute time-warp jewel of a pub - go now before it gets 'improved'.

We had a lovely stay at Bwythyn Cei. The view is a real treat and we all enjoyed the open plan living on the top floor immensely. The highlights of the stay were a wild and windy walk at Strumble Head and returning to watch the 1971 version of Under Milk Wood while pointing at the locations out the window of Bwythyn Cei. The cottage was well appointed, beds very comfortable, plenty of space all round. We're planning a return visit. Thank you!

We had a lovely stay in this extremely well equipped and sensitively restored property. Stunning scenery and plenty to do and see when not just watching the ebb and flow of the tides. It did not apply to us but we were impressed by the provision for babies and toddlers which would mean it would not be necessary to bring car loads of equipment.( I remember those days well.).Will certainly be looking at UTT for future breaks and have already recommended this property to a friend looking for somewhere for a family get together for which this property would be ideal.

We booked NEW Bwthyn Cei for a family get together, the property was perfect for this. Every bedroom had exactly what we needed and the upstairs living area/kitchen was spot on for a group of people to cook, eat and chill out and watch the world go by! We would highly recommend this property and don't forget to use the Kayak on the estuary, it was great fun!

What luck......I have never visited west Wales on holiday before but couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation and the weather. Beautiful views from the living space and ability to dine outside. There was a convenient little play park for our little one seconds away. The accommodation was very welcoming and we instantly felt at home here. The owner's had thoughtfully taken care of everything you may need, especially as we enjoy cooking. I couldn't recommend it higher. :)

We had a lovely holiday at the house. It was beautifully located. The house itself was well looked after and to a high standard. Thank you and we would certainly recommend it.

The house exceeded our expectations, very well appointed with wonderful views from the stunning upstairs living room and big terrace. There was always something to watch on the water be it changing tides or kayakers setting off. Pleasantly quiet despite being on a corner location. Beautiful clean quiet empty countryside and coast all nearby. Very pleasant marine walk direct from front door with great views. Joined by four friends for a few nights and the house easily absorbed us all. Everyone felt very relaxed during their stay.

An absolutely beautiful place. Well equipped and very comfortable. The light here is very special. We loved Porthgain, St Davids and Dinas Head especially. Hoping to be back. Kathy,Jerry,Mimi and Ally.

Fantastic but too short a visit! We don't want to leave - thanks so much for sharing your lovely home.

28 January 2015

We have had a brilliant long weekend here with friends. What a wonderful upside-down cottage in a beautiful setting. This is definitely the way to live! Will certainly be recommending to others and are thinking of making this an annual event. Nick and Sarah. Ammanford.
