  • "Waters Edge is a beautifully kept house with a view across The Gann."

    Having breakfast watching the swans is very special

  • "Great location, beautiful views, excellent facilities with the most comfortable bed I have slept in."

    The storage heaters couldn’t quite cope with the winter weather, so we did have to faff around with the log burner, but a minor inconvenience at most.

    It has everything we need as a family - quiet location, easily accessible for my disabled husband, great places to walk my dog and a great base to explore Pembrokeshire

    Dale was lovely with a good pub and bar/cafe - would highly recommend staying at Waters Edge - we would love to come back!

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Waters Edge, the house was beautiful and we immediately felt at home."

    The view from the living room window is amazing. The facilities were great, everything we needed and more! We loved the big washing machine and the separate freezer was a bonus. We found it very hard to leave, Dale itself is a wonderful place to be - a pub on the beach and a cafe that serves great food made it ideal for our family. We brought our cocker Spaniel and she loved bird watching and a morning walk along the spit opposite the house. Thank you for a wonderful week!

  • "This was our third visit to Water’s Edge and this visit was just as good as our first visit."

    The view from the property is beautiful, looking out over the lagoon and the sea, and it is only a couple of minutes walk on the road to reach the beach or The Gan, which Dotty, the Westie loves for walks. The back garden is also ideal for Dotty as it is secure and she loves to stand on the bank at the end of the garden and watch the cows or sheep when they are in the field at the back of the property. Often there are curlews and oystercatchers in the field too. The property is ideal for anyone who has mobility problems as there are 2 downstairs bedrooms, a toilet and separate shower room and is equipped with everything you could need.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at waters edge."

    The location is excellent. The facilities at the house were very good. Very comfortable. All the amenities were good and wifi was great. The evening use of the log fire was great feature. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Would certainly recommend. We spent every evening walking around the local lake and seashore opposite the house bird watching. Local walks around the marloes were stunning. Marloes beach is well worth a visit at low tide. Best local pub we found was the Castle at Littlehaven. The local cafe at Dale was good. Both very dog friendly. Very lucky with great weather.

    Well maintained. Clean. Good facilities. Great garden. Quiet. Stunning location. Glorious view. 2 min walk to the nearest beach, and 10 mins to Dale where there is another beach, rentals for kayaking/ SUP/ boats etc. Griffin and Coco Brasserie both do great food. Westdale beach short walk away for more secluded sunbathing & swimming. Lots of nearby walks to explore Pembrokeshire. We’d love to come back!!

    The rooms were spotless, plenty of space, the bedrooms were a good size and upstairs was fab, with the balcony, the views out the back are lovely with an occasional visit from the cows, the water views from the front are lovely. We do not have a single negative comment about this property. The location is perfect with lots of places to visit which are all within an hours drive, some walking distance too, the beaches are spectacular, we were reluctant to leave but we will be back again next autumn and would 100% rebook Waters Edge.

    The house was very comfortable, and views from the top windows, including the night sky, were fabulous, and great to have the garden too. Water activities at Dale, with cafe, great restaurant at the yacht club, and pub meals. More great food options at the new quay area in Milford Haven. Walking in the area is glorious, beaches are stunning. Owners were very helpful by email.

  • "We enjoyed staying this lovely property, with superb views and good location for water sports the owner was helpful and responsive to my questions, it was tastefully decorated, beds comfortable, all the facilities are in good except my adult family complained about the Mira showers."

    Because of low water pressure they run scalding hot then freezing cold if another tap is used. With 6 people staying this happened frequently. No bath despite the upper bathroom being extremely spacious. This would have made up for the poor showers. However we still thought about rebooking for next summer... until we saw the price had gone up by almost £1000 a week!!!!! This is blatant profiteering from the pandemic and is scandalous. Instead we've booked another property which you also advertise and hiked up the prices, but we found it on another site where the price was £800 less. So no I won't book with Sykes again and will not recommend you.

    Very comfortable , my grandson (17) liked the snug which gave him more space away from us. We had a great time even with all the Covid restrictions. The Griffin pub provided a good meal outside seated well apart and Coco the brasserie offered take away . We had to cook more ourselves because of keeping away from crowds and the facilities were good in the house, two fridges and a freezer was really helpful since food shops are quite a way. We could walk the dog for miles and had a great family holiday.

    The cottage is well equipped, comfy, clean and cosy. The cottage is really well set out, spacious for family time but also with quiet spaces. And of course the views are superb. Anybody renting this cottage needs to ensure they read the owners instructions especially relating to the heating and recycling. And food shopping has to be thought about with big shops at haverfordwest being 20-25 mins away. We would definitely return here.

    Beds very comfortable, plenty of crockery etc and good instructions from owner. My one grouse was the heating. We didn't have good weather, the storage radiators had not been on and when on were not enough to heat the lounge in the evening. There was a wood burner, very good , but not too exciting for my generation whose childhood was spent lighting and sitting round fires. A bit like hard work. Lovely in warmer weather I am sure.

  • "Water's edge was a perfect Holiday Cottage for us."

    The views over the estuary were stunning and the location, just inside Dale was perfect. We took my 87 year old father with us who managed well in the downstairs bedroom with bathroom just off the kitchen. Our dog was safe and secure in the rear garden and our car was off street on the driveway. Full explanations on the cottage and surroundings were left inside Water's Edge, along with a vast choice of DVD's found in the snug, extra TV room and Netflix on the lounge TV. Kitchen was very well equipped and waste disposal well explained. Thank you so much to Leslie, the owner for his contact while we stayed and for the excellent service from Sykes Holidays.

  • "Great location, lovely garden with tables and chairs and balcony."

    Lovely view Great to have extra fridge and space to store things. Extra sofa bed came in handy as one son wanted his own room. Shower rooms are described as bathrooms but there’s no bath. I would have loved a bath after a long walk or our very chilly 5 hr fishing trip. Quite clean but bit of mould and grime here and there ( I’m fussy). I would consider this house again especially if they got a bath in upstairs! ☺️

    Thank you for your feedback and your comments about the property. Although sofa bed exists it is not advertised for use within the property and as such is not made up. The cottage sleeps six people and has enough proper beds to accommodate six. We dont have any baths and have never implied we have any. Our bathrooms are beautifully designed shower rooms. We have no plans to add a bath to the cottage as these rooms function very well and are correctly advertised on the property description. There is no mold and grime in the property. Our cleanliness feedback is always 100% from our guests. We have a very dedicated cleaning company who ensure that the cottage is cleaned thoroughly on changeover. If there were any issues during your stay we do make ourselves available to deal with you at anytime. At the top of our email we make it clear that we should be contact if you have any issues. We weren't notified of any problems during your holiday and if we had been, this would have been dealt with straight away. Property Owner

About the location


Marloes 1.1 miles; St Ishmaels 3.5 miles; Milford Haven 8.9 miles; Haverfordwest 12.1 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.
