D. Haines
15th February 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Lighthouse, fabulous location, well-appointed spotlessly clean accommodation, we will definitely be back! Sitting in the tower, stargazing or watching dawn break is a unique experience. The wind was whistling around the tower which added to the atmosphere & experience of a truly memorable Pembrokeshire break.

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

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. Also highly recommended is Coco's Brasserie, with a rooftop restaurant.

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. a large, safe sandy beach, with rock pools. There are good pubs, cafes and a well-stocked beach shop.  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, Manor Park, 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 gem on the Pembrokeshire coast offers the rare opportunity for a truly memorable holiday in an exquisite part of Wales.
