My feature about the Last Invasion of Britain at Carragwastad Point can be found in the January/February 2022 issue of Britain Magazine – a snippet of which can be found here: https://www.britain-magazine.com/features/inspiration/the-last-invasion-fishguard/
Here’s the view from Carragwastad Point, on a blustery day!
Getting There and Around
The nearest rail station is Fishguard and Goodwick. Trains take 4 ½ hours from Paddington (Great Western Railway), changing at Swansea (Transport for Wales).
The Stena Line operates the Fishguard to Rosslare (Republic of Ireland) ferry route, with two services a day, taking 3 ½ hours.
Eat, Sleep, Drink
Eat in the Royal Oak, and see the table where the peace treaty was signed. Their new modern restaurant extension overlooks picturesque Lower Fishguard Harbour. For traditional British seaside fare, head to Goodwick Fish and Chips, but if you’re looking for something Michelin-starred, The Fenery Restaurant at Narbeth is only 40 minutes by car.
Trefechan Wen Coastal Barns offer two cosy self-catering accommodation cottages, less than 1km from Llanwnda Church, and at the foot of Garnwnda, one of the locations for the French camps.
