- 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 (heated to 22c) 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 mesmorising and simply
breaktaking! 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 maintanence and upkeep is a constant battle due to its exposure to the elements .
– nearest village to The Lighthouse, just 2 miles away
- Set in a sheltered horsehoe-shaped bay, Dale is
said to the sunniest spot in Wales! It is also a centre for watersports 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.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path - great walking opportunities from your front
- 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
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 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
- 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 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’.
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.
Days out in Pembrokeshire

children are looking for something apart from nature, there is plenty to
do in Pembrokeshire. There are theme parks aplenty in South Pembrokeshire

Welsh Zoo or Folly Farm.

more adventurous try guided activities at TYF, Preseli Venture or Sealyham
