Simply a dream destination, the photos paint a thousand words! Sitting in a spectacular position, surrounded by ocean, cliffs and islands, you will never wish to leave this gorgeously renovated Lighthouse Cottage, full of character and comfort, sleeping 6, pet-friendly, with wood burner, wifi and parking. The calm waters of Dale beach, ideal for kayaking, fishing, boating and windsurfing is nearby, as well as the rolling surf of West Dale beach.
It was one of the best experiences we have ever had in a cottage. The attention to detail in the cottage is impressive. Very well equipped. The perfect location. We definitely would go back there for longer times than a week as it takes much longer to explore the National Park nearby. One thing was missing which is the washing machine in the cottage. Other than that, perfect vacation. Thank you very much.

History of st. Anne's Lighthouse.
Milford Haven has long been recognised by merchants and shipowners as one of Britain's finest deep water harbours; today, large fleets of trawlers and oil tankers gather in the anchorage. Dangerous reefs lie just below the surface of the approach to this famous port, almost in mid channel and in two groups through which shipping must pass.
One of the greatest dangersthe dreaded Crow Rock and Toes lying off Linney Headlies some seven miles south-east of St. Ann's Head, which has claimed many more vessels than the reefs within the harbour. Today, two usable channels are marked clearly by sets of leading lights, all vital to safe navigation.
On 15 March 1712 a patent was granted to Trinity House to build a lighthouse at St. Ann's Head. Trinity House in turn as was its policy at the timeleased it to the owner of the land, Joseph Allen, who agreed to build two lighthouses and keep them in good repair. The terms of the lease were for 99 years at an annual rent of £10; to help maintain the lights, Allen was permitted to collect dues from the shipmasters at Milford Haven amounting to one penny per ton of cargo on British vessels and two pence on foreign vessels. Allen established two towers near the old disused lighthouse and lit coal fires on them in June 1714.
Robert Stevenson visited the station in 1801 and describes them as leading lights guiding vessels clear of the Crow Rock off Linney Head and that:-The light is from Argand burners with parabolic silvered copper reflectors each twenty and a half inches in diameter. In the one lantern there are 16 reflectors and in the other 11 and though they are only about one hundred paces distant from each other there is a distinct keeper at each lantern, so that they are in the most complete state of cleanliness and good order.
St. Anns Head Lighthouse was automated and de-manned in 1998.
