Goodwick House 561
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Winner of a 2012 Design Award, this is a new architect designed property emphasising light, space and the magnificent views over the Fishguard Bay coastline and towards the Preseli Hills.
It's in a quiet location, though within walking distance of the Parrog beach and the shops, pubs and restaurants in Goodwick, and just a short stroll to the coastal path and to open countryside with a network of tracks crossing the Strumble Head peninsula - perfect walking country.
Goodwick is in the middle of the glorious north Pembrokeshire coast with its spectacular cliff scenery and beaches, from wild wide bays perfect for surfing to little hidden coves. Within easy reach are Newport (7m) with its superb stretch of sand and harbour, and St Davids (13m), Britain's smallest city; closer still are picturesque Cwm-yr-Eglwys, Pwllgwaelod and Dinas Head.
The secretive Gwaun Valley and the open landscape of the Preseli Hills, rich in prehistoric remains, are also very close.
Entrance is into the light hallway which has a cathedral height ceiling and is glazed from floor to ceiling, this leads to the well equipped kitchen/diner with a double door to the rear patio.
The KITCHEN AREA has a range of fully fitted solid oak units with a gas hob, electric oven, integral dishwasher and a fridge/freezer.
There is an adjacent UTILITY ROOM with a washing machine and a tumble dryer and ample space for walking boots and beach kit etc.
The downstairs SHOWER ROOM with WC and wash hand basin is accessed via the utility room.
The DINING AREA has a refectory style dining table with 8 chairs, a painted pine sideboard and a bookcase with books of local interest, even some written by the owner!
Double oak glazed doors lead to the SITTING ROOM which is light and airy and has views over the rooftops of Goodwick to the bay. The room is furnished with comfortable seats and an L shaped sofa, TV with DVD player, radio/CD player and CDs, coffee table, occasional tables - and a guitar. One wall is all glass, taking advantage of the light and the views, and incorporates patio doors leading to the spacious terrace (described fully later).
Stairs lead to the 3 bedrooms:
The MASTER BEDROOM is full of light, with one wall of glass and sliding patio doors leading to a semi-covered sun-trap balcony with a pretty painted table and iron bench from which you can enjoy sea views.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire's attraction is its peace and tranquility which has a hypnotic effect on visitors who return year after year, if not more frequently. The coastline and villages have changed very little over the centuries.
The superb sandy beaches and quiet coves, once the haunt of smugglers, are around every twist and turn of the coastal lanes. Both on the coast and in the Preseli hills there is a profusion of beautiful wild flowers, encouraged by the mild climate, high sunshine hours and influenced by the Gulf Stream. Pembrokeshire is a haven for nature lovers with foxes, badgers and birds too numerous to mention literally on your doorstep.
Lower Town, 'Y Cwm' in Welsh, is the old port of Fishguard. Situated at the mouth of the Gwaun river its picturesque setting has been used as a location for many films including 'Under Milk Wood' starring Richard Burton. Local fishermen and pleasure boats add to the attraction and there is a pub and yacht club. Go up the hill towards Newport and visit the site of the old fort for panoramic views of the harbour.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is easily reached from either the harbour or the fort. The picturesque Gwaun Valley is also situated just a few miles inland.
If rural and secluded Pembrokeshire is what you are looking for then Strumble Head is a good place to start. Picture narrow winding lanes traversing around rocky outcrops and ancient field structures intermingled with traditional Welsh Cottages and Farms and you'll be somewhere near. Then throw in sea views and stunning cliff top walks to complete the picture.
Continue West and you will pass Abermawr Beach before reaching Trefin and Porthgain - both extremely popular destinations during the summer. Next is the City of St David's - the smallest City in the UK
A visit to St David's could well result in you asking a fellow human just exactly where the city is (as it did when my brother in law and his family visited). The City has a population of no more than 2000 people but its main attraction is the Cathedral. Founded in AD 589 the Cathedral has been attracting Pilgrims to the area ever since. St David's is also a mecca to surfers who can be seen frequenting Whitesands Beach some 3 miles to the north west.
