A stylish conversion of Fishguard’s first free school. Exposed beams and sloping roof show the immense character of the 180 year old building.
Close to the town center makes this hostel a great spot to enjoy Fishguard. A top example of what Pembrokeshire has to offer. The sweeping sands of Cardigan bay and the deep blue sea to walk beside. Dogs will be happy to know that there’s more sand than you can shake a stick at, ideal for frolicking in. The local town has lots of traditional pubs to experience and even an interesting history to get lost in while you’re there. The town was actually the site of “the last British invasion” which to date happens to be just that. The papers relating to the surrender were actually signed in the Royal Oak which still stands today.
