Why we recommend The Lighthouse...

What a stunning location – you will find it difficult to tear yourself away from the mesmeric coastal views at The Lighthouse. This is a unique and ideal Pembrokeshire getaway with a unique observation room and its very own indoor swimming pool for families and friends.

About The Lighthouse

Please note this is a 300 year old lighthouse so it is very exposed, you may experience high winds, a raging sea, and stunning sunsets. It will however offer rustic charm as salt ingress occurs in the walls .

The Lighthouse experiences all that the elements can throw at it .The owner has put extensive maintenance in place and when available the Property Manager will meet you to show you the property if required. Please note this property is all about location. It is not a luxury property but the quality aspect is in the view and the chance to stay in a lighthouse, with pictures on the walls of the Sea Empress tanker disaster .

  • Located just 2 miles from Dale, allegedly the sunniest spot in Wales, this historic Pembrokeshire lighthouse offers peace and tranquillity and a chance to say you’ve stayed in a very special property - how many can say they have stayed in a Lighthouse?
  • Formerly the largest lighthouse of St. Anne’s Head, this historic property was first built in 1714 and occupies the most westerly point in Wales with one of the finest views of the Pembrokeshire coastline.
  • Located above the beautiful rocky cliffs of this dramatic headline, this holiday accommodation sleeps 10 in comfort and is a real experience any time of the year.
  • Simple décor inside, this isn’t a cottage you are coming to for the stylish interiors, this is a property you are visiting for its unique location, amazing views and your chance to stay in a little bit of history.
  • Occupying four levels, the majority of the living accommodation is on the ground floor for ease and access. The large open plan kitchen/diner/lounge is the heart of the lighthouse - perfect for all the group to get together and enjoy a holiday meal or relax in front of the TV. The 5 bedrooms are all on the ground floor, and are comfortable but simple in style. The sleek family bathroom, however, is a real treat with a double Jacuzzi bath and his and hers sinks as well as separate double walk-in shower.
  • There is plenty to entertain you at The Lighthouse. The swimming pool (water temperature of 22 degrees centigrade) offers stunning views out across the sea. There is also a sauna, table football and outside patio area that provides ample space to sit out and dine alfresco.
  • The Observation tower, previously the coastguard watch tower, will provide the greatest excitement with its 180 degree views of the dramatic St Anne’s headline. You are sure to spend many an hour simply watching the comings and goings, spotting the variety of seabirds and looking out to sea. You can watch the ships moving past in what must be one of the most amazing locations in the UK. It is truly mesmerising and simply breathtaking! Please do take care when climbing the stairs to the Observation Tower – they are very steep.
  • This is a fantastic property, ideal for families and small groups looking for that unique experience with spectacular views.Please note however its maintenance and upkeep is a constant battle due to its exposure to the elements .

The Lighthouse is maintained by a professional cleaning and maintenance company who will work to ensure you have a fabulous stay. Please note however the property is a 300 year old secluded building of historic charm, in an exposed location, and open to the elements. The benefit however is you stay in a lighthouse with amazing history and views. The swimming pool is ONLY 22 degrees centigrade, and therefore feels cold so young children may wish to wear wet suits. 

About The Area

Dale – nearest village to The Lighthouse, just 2 miles away

  • Set in a sheltered horseshoe-shaped bay, Dale is said to the sunniest spot in Wales! It is also a centre for water sports of all sorts - you can try your hand at sailing or surfing, kayaking or coasteering - West Wales Windsurfing and Sailing provide tuition for all abilities.
  • The Boat House Cafe in the village offers daily provisions and good home cooking with friendly service or Dine al fresco at The Griffin Inn with its extensive fish menu - a popular, traditional old waterside pub by the beach. 

The Dale Peninsula beaches

  • St Anne’s Head is the most southerly point of the Dale Peninsula.  The nearest beach to the Lighthouse is Watwick Bay – accessible only from the coast path and a sheltered white sandy beach with rock pools towards the eastern end and a few caves to explore.·      
  • West Dale Beach, a little further towards Dale is West Facing - a sandy beach enclosed by towering cliffs accessible only by very steep steps. For surfers there are good waves in some conditions but strong currents, submerged outcrops and powerful waves make it suitable only for the experienced.·      
  • Beautiful Marloes Beach is a huge expanse of sand at low tide and is backed by spectacular cliffs. It is a bit a walk from the car park but well worthwhile for family fun - for rock pooling and fossil hunting.
Boat Trips
  • Book your place on a spectacular boat trip from Martins Haven to Skomer Island RSPB. Spend a unique day out exploring this glorious pristine environment home to myriad seabirds including thousands of breeding puffins, manx sheerwaters, gannets and more. Seals and dolphins frequent the surrounding coast too.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path  - great walking opportunities from your front door

  • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which runs 186 miles from Poppit Sands in the north to Amroth in the south, circles the Marloes and Dale Peninsulas and the passes the entrance to the Lighthouse.
  • The coastal path around the Dale peninsular is around six and a half miles for a complete circuit and has some really spectacular views.
West Wales Watersports, Dale
  • The huge sheltered bay at Dale is a wonderful spot for dinghy sailing and windsurfing. Learn with RYA and BCU qualified instructors. There are opportunities for kayaking, power boating, canoeing, coasteering, raft building and stand up paddleboarding too.

Little Haven & Broad Haven

  • To the north of the Dale Peninsula is St Bride’s Bay. Broad Haven (north) beach, at the back of the bay, is a Blue Flag beach, popular for both water sport enthusiasts and families. Haven Water Sports offer hire facilities for wet suits, surfboards, body-boards and kayaks.
  • Next door to Broad Haven is Little Haven, a quaint old fishing village full of charm and character with a tea room, bistro, gallery and choice of 3 excellent pubs.

Nolton Haven and Horse Riding at Nolton Stables

  • Nolton Haven, along the bay from Broad Haven, is a pretty inlet with a sandy beach and selection of good eateries.·      
  • Up the valley, Nolton Riding Stables offers riding for both beginners and experts - a gallop through the waves on Druidston is a truly magical experience.

Pembroke, Carew and Manorbier Castles

  • Pembrokeshire is home to the majority of the castles on the Landsker Line – historically the line of division between the English and Welsh speaking parts of the county - although not all of the castles are either complete or open to the public.·      
  • Pembroke Castle which stands at the northern entrance to Pembroke town, a unique medieval walled town which dates back over 900 years, was restored in the early 20th century and is a very complete example of a Norman fortress. An excellent venue for children and enthusiasts of all things historical – visualise past battles or visit on a day of re-enactments for (almost) the real thing!·      
  • Carew Castle is a lovely ruin. Also a venue for re-enactments during the summer months, it is on the banks of an inlet of the Carew River and it is pleasant to meander along the river to the Mill and take tea on the lawn.      
  • Manorbier Castle is in the most lovely position, perched on the hill above the sandy beach at Manorbier.  Built in the 11th century, it was the home of Gerald of Wales who wrote of it that – ‘In all the broad lands of Wales, Manorbier is the most pleasant place by far’.

Visit the popular resort of Tenby

  • This popular Victorian holiday resort with Blue Flag beaches and quaint cobbled streets has a wide choice of boutiques, galleries, pubs, restaurants, and coffee shops.
  • The picturesque harbour is where boats leave for Caldey Island which is owned by monks of the Cistercian Order.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

  • If your children are looking for something apart from nature, there is plenty to do in Pembrokeshire.  There are theme parks aplenty in South Pembrokeshire - Oakwood, Heatherton Sports Park, the Dinosaur Park, Anna Ryder-Richardson's Wild Welsh Zoo or multi award winning Folly Farm.
  • For the more adventurous try guided activities at TYF, Preseli Venture or Sealyham Activity Centre.

St Davids

  • No visit to Pembrokeshire is complete without a trip to St Davids with its magnificent medieval cathedral, small individual shops, restaurants and art and craft galleries. Boat trips to the bird islands sailing from St Justinian's can also be booked from here.

This unique Pembrokeshire Lighthouse offers the rare opportunity for an truly exclusive coastal holiday.
