Bear’s Cave is a charming 300-year-old cottage, overlooking the attractive harbor of Lower Fishguard. The cottage is Grade 2 listed and retains all the charm of the original features while still providing a high degree of comfort.

The cottage sleeps six people and has three bedrooms. (Please note that one has to go through the master bedroom at the top of the stairs to reach the other two bedrooms.) It has a conjoined living room and dining room with an open fire which makes it very cosy. The kitchen, bathroom and utilities have been recently refurbished and modernized.

Views from the window look right out onto the fishing boats in the harbour, or you can enjoy the view from the bench just outside the cottage on the quay itself! If more peace and quiet is needed, the cottage has a pretty terraced garden at the back.

The Bear’s Cave is geared towards family holidays and has been enjoyed by generations of both young and old in the owner’s family. There is a beach at the end of the quay and great spots on the slipways for crab fishing. Kayaking and paddle board tours can be taken from the harbour as well.

The scenic Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is a ten-minute walk away, up the hill from the cottage. It has spectacular views, wild life and places of historic interest. Many beaches, golf courses and a good variety of family attractions are also within easy reach.

Good to know:
- Tiled utility room for storing wet weather gear and outdoor shoes. Washing machine and tumble dryer also available.
- Electricity and between lets cleaning and laundry service included in the price. Tenants should bring their own towels.
- TV with digital channels in living room. Cards, board games and books along with maps and information about local attractions are provided.
- There is currently no WIFI available in the cottage.
- Pets are allowed, but should be kept downstairs only.
- Our bookings run from a Friday to a Friday.
- The stairs up to the bedrooms are very steep and may be unsuitable for the very infirm.

Fun facts!
• The cottage was used in the film ‘Under Milkwood’ starring Richard Burton and Liz Taylor!
• The cottage got it’s unique name because it was originally used as a meeting place for a club for young boys known as the Bear’s Club.

Another great stay

By Caz n steve on 15-Apr-2022

Another lovely week spent at bears cave. So peaceful and relaxing. Everything you need is in the cottage and the location takes some beating. We will be back again soon

Peaceful, cosy, welcoming

Cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Located very close to the water, so quiet, peaceful and cosy. Cottage is very spacious and well equipped and spotlessly clean. Beds very comfy. Excellent communication with owners, locals very friendly. Highly recommended and already booked to return!

Charming Cottage

By D Davies on 24-Sep-2021

Situated right on the Quay, perfect for a peaceful holiday watching the boats bobbing around in the harbour with lovely walks close by. A lovely welcoming, dog friendly pub a couple of minutes walk away (cash only, no food). Bears Cave was so cosy, warm and clean with a modern, well equipped kitchen but still retaining all the charm of a period cottage. We were surprised at how spacious it was. Stairs were not an issue for us and the cottage was everything we expected from the owners description. The owners had gone the extra mile to keep the cottage Covid safe which was very reassuring. All in all a most delightful cottage.
