About Mrs Carrie Duffy

My husband and I bought this cottage after the arrival of our first child - for family holidays. We have always loved Pembrokeshire, and a holiday here gives us a welcome escape from the pressures of work and school life. When we visit, now with three children, we try to spend as much time as possible outdoors - on the beaches, walking coastal paths, and in the hills.

Why Mrs Carrie Duffy chose Fishguard

We feel Fishguard and its people have a special quality. As a market town, Fishguard provides a range of amenities, whilst being in the Pembrokeshire National Park provides easy access to a wide variety of outdoor pursuits.

What makes this house unique

The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, providing a great welcome and base for families or couples.

Very homely and exceptionally comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful home; welcoming and well equipped with just about everything to make your stay incredibly comfortable. The roll top bath was quite luxurious as was the bed in the main bedroom. Tv and DVD player worked fine but no Wi-Fi which was good and bad; good in that you can enjoy other things like reading and taking in the lovely scenery but it would have been useful to have it for planning purposes as phone signal in the area isn't great.

Beautiful place with plenty of walking and exploring to do but Fishguard itself is pretty small and quiet.

Lower Town harbour is just 10 minutes walk, and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes 100m from the cottage. Good beaches nearby are Pwll Gwaelod (5 miles).


Nearest station: Fishguard and Goodwick (2km)

Nearest port: Fishguard (Stena Line)

Travelling From Fishguard Town Centre take the A487 towards Cardigan. The road takes a sharp left turn after about 200yds. Follow the road around the bend and Puffin House is the mid-terrace property on right hand side of road. You can usually find a parking spot on Tower Hill (just before you reach the house).


Haverfordwest - 14 miles

Further Details:

The farmers' market is every Thursday and alternate Saturday in the Town Hall.

It's a short walk to the picturesque harbour of Lower Town; the location for the film 'Under Milk Wood' starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

A perfect base from which to explore Pembrokeshire, with its Coastal Path a few minutes' walk away and coastal walker shuttle buses. St David's, Newport, the Gwaun Valley, Strumble Head, and many beaches and coves dotted along the stunning coastline - including Pwll Gwaelod, Cwm-yr-Eglwys and Newport are well worth visiting. There are several traditional pubs nearby.
