The property

This delightful detached officer’s house is situated in a small development of identical properties, in the village of Dale, within reach of the towns of Milford Haven and Haverfordwest in the Pembrokeshire National Park.

A lovely base for families and friends, this property is close to many attractions and places to visit, including a number of sandy beaches.

With views of the village and sea, this welcoming holiday home has a light and airy kitchen, which is well-equipped and has everything you need to make evening meals after exploring the area.

However, there are a pub and restaurant in the village if you wish to give the chef in your party a night off!

The cosy sitting room has a warming woodburning stove, perfect to relax in front of on a cold evening, and completing the ground floor is a convenient shower room to wash off sand after a day on the beach.

Upstairs are four bedrooms with different bed layouts to accommodate various guests, and also on this floor are a shower room and a small sitting area on the landing.

A front seating area is ideal for enjoying a morning coffee, whilst to the rear is an enclosed garden with outside seating, where you may wish to dine alfresco or to just relax with a cold drink in the evening.

Also in front of the cottage is a shared green with views of Dale village.

The village of Dale has a shop, pub, restaurant and café, as well as a sandy beach, plus one mile away is another village, Marloes which has a shop, café and pub, and you may wish to enjoy a boat trip to Skomer Island to view the puffins and Manx Shearwaters.

There’s something for everyone in the area, with the lovely city of St Davids, Folly Farm, Oakwood Theme Park and Bluestone Water Park all within reach.

A superb Pembrokeshire holiday home.

About the location


Marloes 1 mile; St Ishmaels 3 miles; Milford Haven 9 miles; Haverfordwest 12 miles.

The village of Dale is situated in a sheltered bay, on the Marloes Peninsula, within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Situated on the Pembrokeshire coastal path and designated a SSSI, Dale also attracts birdwatchers and ramblers. Both West Dale beach ad the Gann are within walking distance from the village. During the 18th century, the village produced ale which was then exported to Liverpool and then from the 18th to the early part of the 20th century, Dale was used to transfer limestone and coal. Today, Dale is known for its watersports and has a pub serving food, a shop, a café, a restaurant and a fort. Dale is a favourite with windsurfers and yachtsmen due to its sheltered harbour within the Milford Haven waterway. There is a busy watersports hire centre with the Boathouse cafe attached and the pontoon for tying up small craft or trying out crabbing skills. The yacht club is open to all and has both a cafe and the Moorings restaurant. The pub, The Griffin Inn, has won awards for its seafood, all caught locally. Just one mile away is the village of Marloes which has a pub, The Lobster Pot, a small café and a shop. The spectacular beaches and rocky coves around Marloes are well-known for many historic shipwrecks, caused by the treacherous seas surrounding Skokholm Island, just off the coast. Marloes Sands, a National Trust beach with spectacular geology is certainly worth a visit, as is Skomer Island, where you can take a boat trip to view its 6,000 pairs of puffins and 120,000 pairs of Manx Shearwaters. Within reach is the small town of Milford Haven with a picturesque marina, unique shops, galleries, tea rooms and restaurants, along with the award-winning Torch Theatre. Also close by is Haverfordwest, the county town of Pembrokeshire with quaint little gift shops, pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and a vibrant night life. Haverfordwest sits at the mouth of the River Cleddau and with its castle, museum and large leisure complex it is a great day out for all the family. Dale is an ideal base for exploring this part of South Wales.

Note: Max 8 people including infants.
