About Sue and Gary Busby
Sue is an artist and it is her eye for colour and her intuition for design that you will experience during your stay at Ranelagh. The collection of colourful rugs (Persian, Afghan & Danish) were sourced by her husband Gary, who spent many years in the flooring business. We have been successfully renting out Ranelagh, a 3 bedroom mid-century house next door, as a holiday home for 3 years so decided to take early retirement in March 2016 in order to renovate Colliston, a 1960s bungalow next door. Eventually we will retire to one of the properties but in the meantime we intend to travel in our motorhome and do house sitting when both houses are rented out. We have had a variety of careers (including looking after a country estate) and have lived abroad (Sue in Ireland and Switzerland and Gary in Mexico) but feel most at home in beautiful North Pembrokeshire. Eventually we would like to find time to slow down, enjoy our surroundings and make things!
Sue and Gary Busby purchased this House in 2013
Why Sue and Gary Busby chose Goodwick
Pembrokeshire is in our opinion the most beautiful part of Britain, with a coastline that extends for 185 miles, friendly people, lots of activities and great Welsh food - what more could you want? Some people say that it is a bit like Cornwall but without crowds - We think so, but our part of Pembrokeshire has better beaches by far!
What makes this House unique
Ranelagh is next door to Colliston ref 8236293 ( 3 bedrooms, sleeps 5), so large families or groups can book both houses. Ranelagh is a very light house and has that special feel that you only get next to the sea. You can spend hours looking out of the windows of the living room and bedrooms with their sea and Preseli views or luxuriate in the hot tub on the front terrace in the evening, looking up at the stars or watching the reflection of the lights of Fishguard on the bay. The wood burner in the living room give a very special cosy feeling in the evenings and often you fall asleep to the sound of the wind in the trees mimicking ocean waves. All of the beds are extremely comfortable, but dawn breaking across the Preseli Hills is a beautiful sight that entices you out of bed.

perfect place to stay in Pembrokeshire
Sue and Gary are very friendly, welcoming hosts. The property was very clean, comfortable and homely and had everything we needed for a perfect holiday. We were walking some of the Pembrokeshire coastal path and the property was perfectly placed to access the coast. The Hot tub was a real treat to help ease our aching muscles at the end of the day. We definitely recommend this property.
Our first impression of the property was how wonderful the views were overlooking the bay of Goodwick and the expanse of garden surrounding the house - just fantastic. There was plenty of space for our family of 7 plus the dog! The house provided everything we could possibly need, in the kitchen especially. It was home from home. The washing machine and dryer were easy to use as was the dishwasher. We've not stayed in this area before, having visited Pembrokeshire for 20 years, so we can safely say that it is a great location to base yourselves in order to visit the many wonderful beaches and villages.
