Fishguard, Pembrokeshire, Wales
The Dovecote at Cilgelynen is an imaginatively converted detached stone barn packed with unique character features. It has been designed to be a comfortable home from home with an emphasis on luxury and romance. It has a spacious, well equipped kitchen and dining area, a cosy lounge and a stunning conservatory sun room. A hand crafted oak staircase leads you up to an on-suite mezzanine bedroom with four poster bed. It is set in a beautifully landscaped garden with spring fed ponds and stream, and commands splendid views over the surrounding countryside.Whether cuddling up by a roaring fire after walking a deserted winter coastline, or chilling out in the spa bath as sunlight and birdsong flood in from the garden, the Dovecote and Pembrokeshire have something for everyone whatever the season.

Beautifully renovated barn...warm and cozy and at the same time modern. Love the sun room for bird watching or just sitting reading. No star gazing yet because of clouds. Two lovely robes for after the hot tub...Beautiful views. Great shower, comfortable bed. Narrow Welsh lanes aren't my favorite, but they're worth it to get here.

We came here for our 40th wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. The coastal walks were wonderful and that cottage was everything we could of wished for. It had everything we needed and the owners were very helpful when needed. I would recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing time away in an amazing location. Thank you

Last minute booking took 6 and a half hours to reach destination, worth every mile travelled. Cottage was beautiful had everything you could ask for, arrived feeling very stressed left feeling very refreshed and chilled. Due to the weather (very wet) we spent a lot of our break at the cottage, was a haven of peace. .... the log burner,...

Management response:

We're sorry the weather didn't behave for you but glad the cottage made up for it! We'll look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The Dovecote is available for short breaks of 3 nights or more at the discretion of the owners, in low and mid season weeks. Short breaks must not cross a Saturday night as this potentially interferes with week long bookings on either side. The cost is calculated as a percentage of the weekly rental as follows: - 6 nights = 95% - 5 nights = 85% - 4 nights = 75% - 3 nights = 65%

About the neighbourhood
The Dovecote is situated at Cilgelynen a mile outside the small village of Llanychaer near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. The idyllic position of the cottage along with its proximity to the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park and the Preseli Hills makes it a perfect choice for couples that enjoy the great outdoors. Although the Dovecote is quiet and secluded it is easily accessible by main road from the M4 / A40, by rail (stations in Fishguard and Haverfordwest) and by ferry from Ireland!
