A comfortable semi detached cottage next to the owner; Rose Cottage is on the main road in the small community of Square & Compass between St Davids, with its historic Cathedral, and the bustling harbour town of Fishguard.
Renovated throughout and warmly furnished in a contemporary style; the small conservatory leads into the kitchen/diner and through to the spacious, welcoming lounge along the front which retains a traditional feel with white washed walls and original beams. Stairs lead up to the two cosy bedrooms set in the eaves with traditional wooden ceiling. The enclosed, rear and lawned garden with patio is an ideal spot to enjoy a summer’s barbecue.
Four footpaths lead across the fields to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the beautiful bays of Abercastle and Aberfelin. Abercastle is just 2 miles away and if you time it right you can buy fresh fish when the fishermen return to this picturesque harbour. Square & Compass’ garage, mini supermarket and pub/restaurant serving good food are within walking distance.
Conveniently situated Rose Cottage is an ideal holiday base whatever the time of year.
