The Monthly Tutor's Cottage is situated at the bottom of a quiet valley with no through traffic access. The coastal path is 10 metres away and 100 further, past the lime kilns, is Slade cove. Here there is a turning circle for vehicles with pedestrian access to the lower harbour. Here the estuary from the Gwaun Valley enters the sea. There are lovely walks along the river up the valley and around the coast. The coastal path opposite the cottage meanders around the bay to the small town of Goodwick where the ferry crosses to Ireland on a daily basis. There are several small coves around the bay providing good fishing and having small rock pools which are a must for crabbing. The lower town has been used for several film locations including 'Under Milk Wood' starring Richard Burton. There is a DVD of this in the cottage if you want to try and spot the location.

The cottage is also 100 metres from the centre of the town of Fishguard in the opposite direction to the sea. Here there are all the facilities needed for your stay without the necessity of using a car. There are several restaurants, cafes, pubs as well as bakeries, wine shops, butchers and supermarkets. There is also a weekly farmer's market selling produce at the town hall.

There is ample parking outside the cottage as the no through road only provides access to a terrace of four small cottages, two old houses and Slade cove. The cottage is accessed through a side lane some 10 metres long and into the front facing lawned garden. There is a lower garden which has a lawned area and a small orchard where a large shed houses the log store.
