About Mr Brian Schofield

We live in Pembrokeshire and have three boys. I have lived in Pembrokeshire since 1975 when my parents retired to Pembrokeshire.

Mr Brian Schofield purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Mr Brian Schofield chose Fishguard

We purchased this property in 1998 , it is next door to our cottage, we own all the land and we wanted to have a safe controlled environment for our then young children to play outside , it was in a terrible state so we carried minimal repairs and long let it knowing that we would in the future carry out a major rebuild at some time , that time came in 2012 when we finally received planning permission after five years of negotiating from our efficient proactive Pembrokeshire County Council ! This waiting time was used in fine tuning the layout of the cottage into an easy to move around spacious place.

We totally rebuilt the cottage from the ground up incorporating many recycled materials from the original property and features that make it a comfortable place to stay, such as under floor heating to the whole of the ground floor, we have also landscaped the outside creating a private safe fenced area that children can play outside , this area is over looked from the conservatory so you can keep an eye on the children whilst you relax , there are apple trees and many other trees that we have planted to create windbreaks, I hope you will enjoy staying in the cottage as much as we have building it, take a look at our reviews for the comments our previous guests as left.

What makes this cottage unique

open plan , on one level , ground floor bedroom , ground floor walk in shower

wheel chair friendly

An exceptional holiday retreat for our two-family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Ty Hapus was an amazing base for our Pembrokeshire holiday. The house itself was beautiful, comfortable and exactly suited to our needs with plenty of space for the children to explore and play. The hot tub was a great way to unwind at the end of each day's adventures, relaxing under a clear autumn skies. Brian made us very welcome from the moment we arrived and gave us some great local pointers. We're looking forward to going back again soon.

Beautiful house in a rural setting centrally located between St. David's and Newport

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here while walking sections of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The house is very comfortable, spacious, and light. It was just constructed/remodeled in the past few years and is very tasteful. It is necessary to have a car if you plan to stay here as all markets and eating (unless you cook in) options necessitate driving.

An amazing 3 night stay with the family

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 adults and an 18 month little boy and we all had a great time at the cottage. It was immaculately clean and spacious and set in lovely surroundings. As we had a toddler with us we were quite content to be out walking in the day and get back to the cottage have a few drinks and bbq and the hot tub was most definitely a plus and we made use of it every evening. It was ideal for us to spend quality family time together and I would certainly recommend the cottage and hopefully we will go back there at some point for a repeat performance. Also a big thank you to Brian who made us feel welcome and provided us with local information.

Special interest holidays:

Pembrokeshire as it all, horse riding, surfing, water skiing, snorkelling, diving, sea and fresh water fishing and plenty of outdoor centres offering everything for adults and children, go carting, shopping, exploring mountains and beaches, caves, walking coast paths.

Our tourist information centres are bursting with leaflets.


Approx 4 miles to the famous Pembrokeshire coast.

We have travelled the world and guarantee you will not be disappointed with our coast and beaches.

Pembrokeshire has plenty of blue flag beaches, sandy beaches, rocky coves, sea caves, rock pools, surf beaches and the only coastal national park.

Pembrokeshire was recently voted to have the second best coastline in the world by the National Geographic Society.


Dont want to drive too Pembrokeshire ?

I can meet you off the Fishguard train, we now have several trains a day

Cardiff airport 105 miles. End of M4 59 miles.

Fishguard Stena Line port to Ireland 4 miles, take a day trip to Dublin.

Haverfordwest air strip has charter flights to Dublin and other cities, they also have pleasure flights by plane and helicopter.


Fishguard is 4 miles, Haverfordwest 14 miles, St Davids 18 miles, London 279 miles.

But remember our roads are congestion free and you can travel at 56 mph with no problem ie. nearly a mile a minute.

What will take the time is deciding which beach to visit next.

Further Details:

Fishguard as plenty of shops; Tesco Express, Co-op, and we still have plenty of local traders.

Fish, Indian, and other restaurants

Royal Oak on Fishguard Square is where the French surrendered in 1797 after the last invasion of the British Isles, there is a Superb taperstery in the town hall depicting this, sewn by local ladies. There is so much to see and do, a week is not enough to explore all of Pembrokeshire.

(discounts on two or more weeks given)
