Guest Book Comments

Lovely position - cottage well-equipped but quite difficult to keep warm - also not scrupulously clean. Bed very comfortable. Has steps with no rail outside, and although a bungalow, has a change of level inside so not suitable for those with mobility problems.

Property Description
Seaside holiday home in the charming village of Dale ideal for walking Pembrokeshire's coast, beachcombing, boat trips and a haven for water sports. Located in what is called West Wales's sunniest location.
  • With its coastal walks, sheltered bay and aquatic sports scene, Dale is an ideal holiday location. Under Blue Anchor, built in 1969, has been owned since then by the same family who have preserved the holiday feel and work extensively to retain the original vibe. Guests often say the rustic charm and atmosphere is their favourite thing and return year after year. Do not expect modern plasterboard and chipboard - the owners want to retain the heritage with occasional 1960's quirks still evident.

  • In an elevated position, flanked by palm trees, the bungalow is approached by a flight of steps and has rooms on different levels (unsuitable for the infirm or disabled). It is simply and tastefully furnished throughout.

  • The sitting room is comfortably furnished with 2 sofas, 2 armchairs, a wood burning stove and windows opening out onto the garden.

  • There is a galley-style kitchen and a dining area which allows great conversation to flow with the open-plan layout. Vibrant Mexican tiles and bright walls bring eternal cheer.

  • There is one large king size bedroom with luxury John Lewis bedding and two small twins offering great privacy with their elevated position.

  • All year round short breaks are available at Under Blue Anchor with unlimited Wi-Fi and recordable BT-TV

About the Area
  • South Pembrokeshire - Dale
  • Dale, with The Griffin Inn, Moorings Restaurant and Deli, the Boathouse Cafe and a thriving village hall is one of the most popular sailing centres in Pembrokeshire.

Sea safaris at Dale & Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • Sea safaris run to the Viking Island of Skomer. The island has a year-round seabird study centre, is home in the Spring and early Summer to a huge colony of iconic puffins and houses the world’s largest population of shearwaters. Visiting the island is a “must do” activity for any visit to Pembrokeshire in the warmer months to see the swathes of wild flowers and amazing array of birds. The boat leaves 2 miles away and early arrival is vital.

The Griffin Inn, Dale 

  • A traditional old waterside pub where food and drinks can be enjoyed outside on the harbour wall or on the roof terrace - so that you can make the most of the coastal atmosphere. This is one of the most popular restaurants in the county and a fabulous place to enjoy a drink or a meal overlooking the bay.
