Holidays in West Wales
Fishguard is a picturesque town located along the coastline in South West Wales. Situated within the beautiful surroundings of the Pembrokeshire countryside, Fishguard presents a tranquil holiday escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Perfect for both families and couples, the town’s quaint character will appeal to both old and young alike, giving them an enchanting holiday where they can witness both the sounds and sights of nature itself. Nestled within a peaceful cove, Fishguard’s appealing charm is captured by the cluster of traditional quayside cottages and small boutique stores that line its narrow streets. Find yourself overlooking the magnificent sea and all its glory atop the rocky cliffs before descending into the friendly atmosphere of the town centre. Enjoy a stroll around the harbour and cast your eyes upon some of the most spectacular scenery in Wales as you catch a glimpse of some of the wildlife that inhabits here. See sights of rare birds, such as Red Kites and Kestrels or delight upon witnessing the sights of Dolphins as they swim through the gentle waves.
Within the town centre, find yourself set amongst some exquisite traditional architecture, as well as the historical Town Hall building. Now redesigned, it is in here that you will find the local tourist information as well as a library and indoor market. There is also the rare opportunity to see the internationally famous tapestry, depicting the story of the 1797 last invasion of mainland Britain.
Then spend your time browsing the many delightful shops that are crammed with an endless selection of unique gifts. Pop into the “Gwaun Gift Shop” or “Janes Of Fishguard” for contemporary style gifts and souvenirs, in addition to arts and crafts. Whilst there, sit back, relax and enjoy an afternoon cup of tea or coffee as you sit out in the peaceful garden admiring the rich colours of the environment and soaking up the fresh sea air.
If you fancy being really adventurous, why not continue your holiday in Ireland and take a trip over to Rosslare on board one of the many ferries that dock at Fishguard. Within four hours you could be wandering the Irish landscape as you traipse the rolling hills and meandering roads.
When it comes to dining in and around Fishguard, why not treat yourself to a good old fashioned bag of fish and chips as you gaze out at the sea, or for an extra special evening visit “The Royal Oak” for a delightful meal within the comforts of its cosy ambience.
Following the bay around, find yourself in Fishguard’s neighbouring village Goodwick. As another pretty little fishing village, admire its charm and character as you spend time wandering its historical streets and visit its quaint gift stores and coffee shops. Newport’s sublime beaches can also prove a great day out for all the family, with a selection of majestic sands, you will be spoilt for choice on which one to visit next. Should you want to venture a little further, travel back in time and visit the historical city of St Davids. Located just fifteen miles away, a thirty minute trip will bring you into the centre of this spectacular city, where you can take a tour of its ancient Cathedral or call into its unique and wonderful shops.
