Public Transport on and Around Strumble Head
How to get to Stones Cottages
People have asked us before “What are you doing here? Hiding?”. While we are not exactly hiding it is true that Stones Cottages is a peaceful retreat from the noise and light pollution of much of Britain. Does that mean we are hard to find? Not on your nelly. With ferry’s, trains and buses linking Goodwick and Fishguard to the real world not to mention the footpaths linking Stones Cottages and Strumble Head to the almost unreal landscapes of the Pembrokeshire National Park there are many ways to get here. If you are coming by public transport we are more than happy to pick you and your luggage up from either the ferry port or the train station. Furthermore public transport is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.

Getting Around & About from Stones Cottages
Fishguard & Goodwick Buses
The Strumble Shuttle is the closest bus route to Stones Cottages and it runs between Newport and St. Davids. Furthermore it is only a 10 min walk to Trefasser Cross from the cottages. Why not make the most of the Coast Path while you are here and take this great bus service to Porthgain or Abereiddi and walk back along the coastal path to the cottages? Or why not walk from the cottages to Strumble Head and follow the coast path to Goodwick Harbour and then get the bus back from Goodwick Square.
There are lots of busses from Fishguard to other parts of Pembrokeshire and Cardigan. We would be happy to drop you off or pick you up from Fishguard if we are around.

Day Trips to Ireland
It is also possible to take a day trip to Roslare in Ireland on the Fishguard Ferry. It can cost as little as £5.50 per person on Tuesday. admittedly you don’t get much time on Irish soil but it is a fantastic opportunity to spot wildlife. Great for seeing Common Dolphins and most of all the ferry probably offers the best chance of seeing Risso’s Dolphins anywhere in the UK. Recent spots include Fin Whales and Minke Whales.
Visit the Stenna Ferry web site for more details.
It is also possible to volunteer on one of the wildlife surveys with excellent Sea Trust Wales monitoring Whales, Dolphins and other Cetaceans across the Irish Sea. More information can be found here or why not take a visit to the wonderful Ocean Lab on Goodwick sea front to talk to the staff.
