About Sue and Gary Busby

Sue is an artist and it is her eye for colour and her intuition for design that you will experience during your stay at Ranelagh. The collection of colourful rugs (Persian, Afghan & Danish) were sourced by her husband Gary, who spent many years in the flooring business. We have been successfully renting out Ranelagh, a 3 bedroom mid-century house next door, as a holiday home for 3 years so decided to take early retirement in March 2016 in order to renovate Colliston, a 1960s bungalow next door. Eventually we will retire to one of the properties but in the meantime we intend to travel in our motorhome and do house sitting when both houses are rented out. We have had a variety of careers (including looking after a country estate) and have lived abroad (Sue in Ireland and Switzerland and Gary in Mexico) but feel most at home in beautiful North Pembrokeshire. Eventually we would like to find time to slow down, enjoy our surroundings and make things!

Sue and Gary Busby purchased this house in 2013

Why Sue and Gary Busby chose Goodwick

Pembrokeshire is in our opinion the most beautiful part of Britain, with a coastline that extends for 185 miles, friendly people, lots of activities and great Welsh food - what more could you want? Some people say that it is a bit like Cornwall but without crowds - We think so, but our part of Pembrokeshire has better beaches by far!

What makes this house unique

Ranelagh is next door to Colliston ref 8236293 ( 3 bedrooms, sleeps 5), so large families or groups can book both houses. Ranelagh is a very light house and has that special feel that you only get next to the sea.

You can spend hours looking out of the windows of the living room and bedrooms with their sea and Preseli views or luxuriate in the hot tub on the front terrace in the evening, looking up at the stars or watching the reflection of the lights of Fishguard on the bay. The wood burner in the living room give a very special cosy feeling in the evenings and often you fall asleep to the sound of the wind in the trees mimicking ocean waves.

All of the beds are extremely comfortable, but dawn breaking across the Preseli Hills is a beautiful sight that entices you out of bed.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here to celebrate a birthday and very impressed. The house is on a hill and has lovely views across Goodwick to Fishguard. The gardens are large, well kept and have plenty of seating to enjoy the views. It has a small orchard, herb garden and bbq. The house is very well kept, spacious and homely with games, books, dvds, cds, kiddies fishing nets, a fully equipped kitchen and comfy beds. The hosts - Sue and Gary are friendly and live next door. They collected and returned us to the train station, which was much appreciated. They also gave us fresh eggs from their chickens. There is plenty to do in the local area and I would definitely stay here again. A real gem of a place!

A lovely house in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We annually have a couple of holidays in different areas of the country staying at a 'holiday' house which needs to be comfortable, well stocked/supplied, and central to local attractions.

This was our first return to Pembrokeshire after many years and after our stay we were completely satisfied with our choice of location.

The house was ideal, lots of space, lovely view, interesting grounds, and everything we wanted or needed at hand.

Having the owners staying close by just provided the personal touch.
