About Ceri and Bob

We fell in love with Rising Sun 10 years ago and it has been our bolt hole and sanctuary ever since! We get down to Newport as often as we can, but are happy to share this magical place with visitors who always love it and want to come back again.

Ceri and Bob purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Ceri and Bob chose Fishguard, Newport, The Preseli Hills & Bluestone

Rising Sun is perfectly located just out of the bustle of the town, but near enough to walk down for an evening in the pub! It sits just on the side of the mountain with lovely views to the sea, estuary and across the valley. The garden is beautiful with its large pond and seating areas, have a go on the swing!

What makes this cottage unique

Rising Sun is such a relaxing, comfortable yet quirky and interesting home. As a former pub with some lovely features, it's as interesting to be on the inside as it is to be outside admiring the views!

Wonderfully comfortable and well appointed cottage.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door it was lovely.There was plenty of room for all of us. The garden is delightful and for a 6 year old it was heaven with lots of places to explore.

The beds were very comfortable, with plenty of stage space in the bedrooms. Beautiful view from the front bedrooms. There wasn't anything that we said that we wished we'd brought from home as it was all there, full bookcase, DVDs & loads of games for all to play. In the outside shed were a whole range of outdoor toys and equipment for us to borrow too.

All in all, with the weather as a friend, it was a fantastic holiday week for all 3 generations.

Thank you.

Lovely holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is perhaps the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. It is in a wonderful location overlooking Newport Bay, and the property itself has been modernised with good taste and imagination. The decor is artistic and every little detail appears to have been considered. The beds are comfortable and everything was in order on arrival. The garden is very attractive and a pleasure to sit in on a sunny day. The coast and countryside of north Pembrokeshire are beautiful and we spent most of the days exploring the villages and walking the footpaths. Fishguard, Solva, St Davids and St Dogmaels are well worth visiting as well as small villages such as Nevern and Moylegrove and the very scenic Cwm Gwaun. Not suitable for wheelchair users but otherwise highly recommended.

Our Holiday at Rising Sun

  • 4 of 5

Rising Sun is set in beautiful surroundings with lovely views of the estuary and countryside. Spacious, but still retaining a cosy cottage feel, its perfect for couples or families alike. It was very clean, well maintained, and well equipped. The gardens are well kept with easy access onto Carningli Mountain. Newport town is nearby, with several good places to eat, including the Golden Lion and Cnapan Hotel. The Shire Horse Centre and Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort offer good family days out. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend Rising Sun to anyone.
