Situated on a quiet no through road above the pretty harbour at Lower Town, this beautifully restored traditional Welsh stone cottage oozes character. The owners have retained many original features but added modern conveniences, resulting in a warm spacious charming cottage, suitable for a family holiday whatever the weather. There are two comfortable seating areas downstairs, both with wood burning stoves and slate floors with under floor heating. Up a short curved staircase is a light and spacious very well equipped kitchen and dining area, again with slate floors and under floor heating. From the dining room the back door opens out onto the secluded split level garden overlooking the harbour, a perfect place to enjoy a barbecue on a summers evening. There is a separate shower room with large shower cubicle, toilet and wash basin on this level, again with under floor heating, then up a couple of stairs to a bathroom with oversize bath, toilet, wash basin, marble floor, large airing cupboard and under floor heating ensuring warm toes in the winter!

About the local area

The cottage is about 100yards from the harbour with excellent launching facilities for small boats and canoes, with 4 slipways to choose from. Lower Town is the old port of Fishguard, situated at the mouth of the river Gwaun; its picturesque setting has been made famous as the set for several major films. It is still a working harbour and local fishermen and pleasure boats add to the attraction. There is a small friendly pub and a yacht club where visitors are made very welcome. There is access to a small beach via the Marine Walk, and visitors can try a bit of crabbing off the harbour wall when the tide is in. It is possible to take kayak or sailing lessons from here either one to one or in small groups. Fishguard town itself has many shops, cafes and pubs and restaurants, there is also a good leisure centre and swimming pool for those rainy days. Day ferries to Ireland are available from Goodwick harbour for an alternative day out. The Fishguard Folk Festival is held in May, Fishguard International Music Festival is held in July and Aberjazz is held in August, these festivals are full of delights and attract many people every year. The sea skirts around the town with small harbours and beaches; regattas and sailing races are a weekly event during the summer months, and there are usually classes for enthusiastic amateurs of all ages.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is a few yards from the cottage and is a haven for walkers, dog owners, bird watchers and wildlife lovers and anyone with an appreciation of splendid coastal scenery. The local bus services are excellent and the Puffin Shuttle and Poppit Rocket run daily in the summer, calling at out of the way places and operating a stop on request policy, all buses allow dogs. Or take a drive to the many beaches nearby, such as Cwm yr Eglwys – a picturesque cove located between Lower Town and Newport. It offers safe bathing for families, a narrow slipway for launching small boats and access to the Coastal Path. All in all Old Dinas Arms provides its guests with the comfort and convenience needed when exploring this lovely corner of Wales. Nearby are a myriad of sights, attractions and experiences; choose from numerous castles, secluded beaches and hidden coves, nature reserves, gardens, zoos, coastal walks, quaint seaside towns and villages offering an endless list of water sports, pony trekking, theme parks and a vineyard – you will need to return year after year to experience them all.
