Fishguard Venue

Fishguard Bay Hotel

The Fishguard Bay Hotel is the venue which we have chosen as best matching our high standards at WRITERS’ HOLIDAY to provide our guests with the very best value for money as regards venue, accommodation, food choice and quality – and above all ambience.

Nestling in rich woodland above Fishguard harbour and overlooking some of the most beautiful and spectacular coastline in Wales, guests can view the lower town in the distance across the bay. This was setting for Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood, when stars like Glynis Johns, Richard Burton, Peter O’Toole and many others stayed at the Fishguard Bay Hotel.

The hotel was also the base for the filming of Moby Dick. In 1979, this former Great Western Railway hotel was designated as a building of historic and architectural interest. Set in a commanding position overlooking Cardigan Bay, the hotel offers an atmosphere second to none with oak panelled walls, high ceilings and an air of Victorian splendour.

Combined with warm hospitality, superb service and every comfort, we invite you to join us on our annual weekend holidays, where the workshops and informal chats will make all the difference when you return refreshed to the lonely world of being a writer.

Fee includes all weekend workshops and collection / return to Fishguard and Goodwick train stations.


The facilities are of the highest standard. The quality, en-suite accommodation offer bathroom toiletries, complimentary tea and coffee, first-class catering, parking and much more.
