about the property

Pembrokeshire beach holiday cottage right on the actual beach at Goodwick, with no barrier between you and the water. Perfect family holiday holiday cottage on the Pembrokeshire Coast National park footpath.

  • 'Top 15 (world) Bargain Beach Houses' (Guardian 2014)
  • 'Top 10 UK cottages for Lovers' (Sunday Telegraph )
  • 'Top 10 Exciting Holidays You'll Never Forget - No 1!' The Daily Mirror
  • 'the perfect base to explore the Pembrokeshire coastal footpath' (The Telegraph)
  • 'ideal for walkers, rock-poolers, wild-swimmers and feasting on local mussels' (The Guardian)

Pen-y-Parrog is a cosy, traditional West Wales family cottage right ON the beach at Goodwick, just off the coast road. 

Built directly on a quiet pebble beach without even a fence between you and the sandy shale, you can wander down to the water with breakfast in hand or admire the coastal views without even leaving your bed. There is even a hot tub built into a cute cabin to enjoy in any weather. This cottage, with its traditional grouted roof was chosen as the quintessential Pembrokeshire cottage home to 'Rosie Probert' (Elizabeth Taylor) in the famous famous film of Under Milk Wood.

Second visit to this beauty x The Lewis and Walsh Family had the most idyllic stay at PenYParrog this weekend. Walking and talking and hot tubbing and the men even took a dip in the sea!! The most amazing accommodation, all the little details catered for. Lazy evenings in front of the log fire, sunny and fresh afternoons in the hot tub. Thank you so much. We will be back x

An extremely relaxing holiday in a beautiful location. We were spoilt on out first morning by seeing Dolphin'so in the bay. My little girl and I spent a lovely afternoon searching for muscles on the beach when the tide had gone out. We would highly recommend Pen-y-parrog and will hopefully be back again in the not to distant future. A place where many happy memories have been made. Thank you UTT.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful location! Beach combing for shells and stones - and we found mussels and razor clams - we pottered in the bay in our little boat and was treated to a seal popping its head up at us ! Not the best weather but it didn't matter!

What a perfect spot! We really enjoyed our stay at Pen-Y-Parrog. The cottage is absolutely beautiful inside and out with plenty of space and very comfortable beds. We had excellent weather during our stay which meant we spent the afternoons enjoying the garden and looking out to the beach, just idyllic! Would definitely recommend this cottage - in fact we have already passed the details on to several friends and family members.

What a beautiful cottage, set in a beautiful corner of Pembrokeshire?! We have had the most wonderful time, everything we could want was there for us. The cottage, garden and beyond were fabulous. The cottage itself was well equipped and perfectly situated on the outskirts of Fishguard. Every evening was spent cool in the garden or on the rocks looking out to sea with a chilled glass of wine, taking it all in and enjoying the peace and tranquility. The hot tub was an added bonus and was certainly great to soak in after a day of coastal walking! Thanks for a great stay we hope to return in years to come

This was a cosy cottage in the perfect location, so close to the sea and overlooking the Pembrokeshire coast. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and had plenty of character and we really appreciated that the Welsh-language was prominent in all the signs, notices and on the bookshelf. The hot-tub, although slightly dated, was an added extra, overlooking the garden and the sea. I would highly recommend this cottage.

Went to Pen y Parrog with 5 of my best friends to celebrate my birthday for the weekend. We had an absolute blast - what a gorgeous cottage! Weather was terrible but it didn't dampen our holiday. It was lovely relaxing in front of the logburner, soaking in the hot tub chatting until the early hours and cooking a nice meal to share in the well kitted out kitchen! A bit like the tardis....looks small from outside but deceptively spacious inside! We would definitely return (if we can get someone to babysit the dogs again)!

Love this place - having a beach at the end of the garden is hard to beat! Fabulous scenery, cosy cottage and great local food from the farmers' market. We will be back again!

Just returned from idyllic break in perfect holiday cottage. Re-visiting Goodwick with son, daughter & young grandson, Pen-y-Parrog was perfect for everyone, ideally situated for beach life, bird watching, and fishing! It was comfortable with great kitchen, log stove for chilly evenings & loved the hot tub. Hope to return very soon & recommending to all our friends.

Wonderful cottage, just what we needed to blow winter cobwebs away. Great facilities with consideration to comfort such as dressing gowns for coming back in from the revitalising hot tub. Don't think you can underestimate the joy of a hot tub in winter feels like your cheating the weather. Play park near by for kids, friendly cafe with sift play and right in front of the cottage the Best play park ever - a beach with craggy rocks seaweeds and shells. What more could you ask for ?

Pen y Parrog is an extremely comfortable cottage with a garden that flows onto a shingle beach, great for bird watching and those who love boats! It would be a good place to bring a kayak and pootle around the bay at high tide. Fishguard is walking distance and the opportunity to buy local fresh Produce, a great farm shop, local crab and cafes galore. The noise from the pub at night and the road takes a little getting used to. We still enjoyed a good relaxing break.

The first time we visited Pen-y-Parrog was just for my husband Phil and myself celebrating being together 50 years. We thought it was so idylic that we booked it again to share with some of our children and a grand-daughter. We all had a super time. They loved going down to the beach everyday. It was perfect. We hope to come again soon. Thank you.

I am loathe to leave a review in fear that someone will grab this place instead of us next year. We loved our time there and were blessed with wonderful weather, views and beach. Definitely a 9 out of 10, but please don't book it. Don't go. :)
