About james Stokes

Ok - so who am I - well just an ordinary guy with a wife and three grown children.

I love this area for its authentic beauty and the feeling of freedom it inspires. I also enjoy knowing that I help people have a great holiday at reasonable cost - . If you ring me on 07881 942 556 I am more than happy to talk to you about the houses and the area and for just as long as you like.

james Stokes purchased this house in 2013

Why james Stokes chose Pembrokeshire

Its lovely here, relaxed and easy going. The cottage is in a peaceful location and has great views of the coast but it is not remote and Goodwick is not particularly a holiday village, - real life is here and the people who live here the year round are warm and friendly; the overall atmosphere is laid back and happy.

What makes this house unique

Harbour View is just that, an ordinary house with exceptional views. The coastal path is right outside the garden gate and offers the freedom to walk for 180 miles.

The house is well equipped and designed to make the best of the panoramic views across the harbour and beyond.The decking which is accessible from the first floor kitchen provides a great outdoor space with unobstructed views across Fishguard Bay and along the coast for as far as the eye can see. A local bus stops close to the house and offers guests the opportunity to leave the car at home and walk along the coastal path as far as they wish before then catching the bus home. Refer to local bus timetables for more information about bus services and times.

As well as being close to Goodwick Sands which offers safe bathing from the sheltered sandy beach the house makes an ideal base for exploring all that the Pembrokshire National Park has to offer; hidden sandy coves, little coastal villages, beautiful sandy beaches, and hills. Then when you get fed up with beaches there are boat trips to see dolphins, seals and porpoises, and the wonderful tiny city of St Davids is a must see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have a few reviews, I asked for one and the rest came anyway. In my crazy round about way, the fact that no body has ever been dissapointed is the best review of all. I now have many returning customers and that gives me the confidence to say that the reality of Harbour View goes beyond its description and photographs.

Fantastic house with an even better view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Goodwick. The house was spacious and clean and tidy. The view out over the sea was fantastic. James was a great host and the kids loved the welsh cakes he provided.

Goodwick proved to be a great base for exploring the surrounding area.

I would recommend the property to anyone.

Lovely house in a prime spot for exploring

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped house on the coastal path, everything we could have needed for our stay.

Kids and dog loved the garden and local walks and the fire made the perfect end to the day.

Would definitely stay again as there is so much to explore and we felt right at home!

A comfortable home with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression as we walked in, the house was spotless. It even smelled clean and fresh throughout our stay.

The heating works well and there was plenty of hot water. The upstairs shower doesn't have much pressure but the bath downstairs more than made up for it.

Harbour View couldn't be situated in a better spot. The views are breathtaking and constantly changing with the weather and time of day. Being right on the coastal path is a bonus.

We enjoyed visiting places up and down the coast (St. David and Portmeirion). For golfers the links course at Newport is worth playing.

Wonderful views and lovely spacious property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views and a lovely location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only very small criticism is the shower which was not very powerful. St David's is great for a visit and look round the cathedral, and the boat trip to Ramsey Island was fantastic.

An awesome location

  • 3 of 5

A wonderfully situated place overlooking the ace coastal views.

Lovely comfortable sofas and beds.

Possible improvements....An upgraded shower would be a great asset as it only trickled , also the kitchen units did smell rather fusty, but it may have had some recent leak that we were unaware of?

Owner was incredibly helpful with Information Prior to our visit.

Also the neighbour was a great help as a tourist information centre.

All in all it was a great holiday, thanK you.

Owner's Response: Diane is quite right about the shower, I am fed up with always fixing it. This winter the shower will be taken out and a brand new one installed, as well as the bathroom upgraded. It took long enough but a pump is now fitted and it works just fine. I apologise to anyone that put up with the old one. Entirely my fault as I had never really tested it.
