about the property

A pretty Grade II listed traditional welsh stone built holiday cottage, on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path with direct beach access.

Pen y Parrog is perfect for walking, cycling, families and dog walking. You can spend time watching the sea birds from a seat in the garden, go shell collecting and rock pooling when the tide is out.

  • 'Top 10 UK cottages for Lovers' (Sunday Telegraph )

  • '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)

The cottage with its traditional grouted roof was chosen as the quintessential Pembrokeshire cottage home of ‘Rosie Probert’ (Elizabeth Taylor) in the Famous Richard Burton film of ‘Under Milk Wood’.

The towns of Fishguard and Goodwick with their local shops, pubs and restaurants are both within walking distance. There is also a small supermarket a 5 minute stroll away. The ferry to Ireland and the train station which serves London, Cardiff and other main line stations are both within walking distance.

Pen y Parrog is a beautifully positioned cottage, prefect for making memories.

The Goodall family would like to thank you very much for the lovely Christmas Tree and accessories you kindly provided, which made our Christmas quiet special. Lovely cottage and views. Even walked on beach on Christmas Day. Thank you. Happy New Year to you all - Joyce

We had a lovely stay, cottage was clean and tidy. Lovely to wake up and see the sea in the morning. Close to St Davids and Cardigan, plenty of nice walking and coastal path near by.

Pen-y-Parrog has a most spectacular location. It’s a very unique place to stay with the garden meeting the seashore. The best beach for skimming stones in the world. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. Local walks nearby are fabulous and amenities at the doorstep made out holiday very relaxing.

We had a wonderful holiday at Pen Y Parrog. We love the cottage and the beautiful views. I wouldn't change a thing about the experience.

Fantastic cottage and a beautiful location. Plenty of parking, small but perfectly functioning kitchen with everything you'd need. Lovely cosy living room with large dining table and sofa bed facing out the a beautiful sea view, TV, CD player, DVD player with books, cd's, dvd's and games for your entertainment. The master suite is beautiful, though the other rooms are small, the room with ensuite is not bad but if you are above average size/height it is a lil bit of a squeeze, but not bad and the double bunk room is tiny and really only any good for kids so one of the couples in our group just used the sofa bed downstairs. lots of throws about for keeping you warm or sitting out in the garden. Built in BBQ and garden furniture for sitting out in the sun or as we did, right at the end of the garden looking over the sea. The location is great, easy to find with pubs and shops nearby as well as a bigger sandier beach! great time was had by all and everyone loved the house! proper little slice of heaven!

We are big fans of going away to visit different cottages around Wales. Pen-y-parrog ticked every box. The comfy bed, the hot tub with a lovely view and a fantastic roaring fire. It also feels very spacious and is lovely and clean.. we will be returning. Thank you. Em and Sue

Pen y parrog is so beautifully renovated to a high standard but retains its charm. The location is perfectly placed to take advantage of the many beaches which are spectacular and places of interest. Bar Five in Fishguard town is definitely worth a visit with views to die for. The sea comes in to the lawn at the bottom of the garden. As soon as you walk through the door you are at peace. A table situated downstairs ensure you eat and play games together. Having a hot tub adds to the feeling of understated luxury. We also took a speedboat around Ramsay Island - the sea was turquoise and we saw 2 day old seal pups, porpoises and many sea birds. We only had a few days but left so much richer for it. Wonderful memories to treasure forever.

Our children (5 and 2) didn't want to leave Pen-Y-Parrog. 'Can we live here instead?' Having breakfast on the beach, searching for crabs after tea, and having such easy access to the beautiful coastline made this a really easy, fun week. The cottage was gorgeous and full of character.

Fantastic cottage, with private garden leading to a pebble beach, superb view over the bay added bonus of a hot tub. Clean and tidy with all mod cons.

Cottage was fabulous. Cosy comfortable relaxing an absolute joy to spend time at. The view at the rear of the property was just beautiful and the added bonus of a hot tub what more could you ask for. A holiday we will always remember and hopefully a place we will return to again.

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)!

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 ?

- Mary ,

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. :)
