    “This was just what we wanted for a quiet, off season stay, watching the sea and changing light, warm and comfortable.”

    So wonderful to wake up every morning to the view of the beach and sea. Would certainly go again...Easy access to the beach or a walk along the coastal path.

The property

Black Rock Boathouse makes a wonderful holiday destination right on the sea front at Dale beach in Pembrokeshire.

Dale is well known for it's watersports with sailing and windsurfing being very popular pastimes.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path can be joined right on the doorstep and begs to be walked.

At the far end of the bay is St Anne's Head with a lighthouse that guides ships into the Milford Haven Waterway.

This is a magical place to stay with views of Dale beach and the rock pools just below the boathouse. You can take a boat trip from nearby Martins Haven to the islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm where you can see numerous breeds, depending on the time of year, including Puffins, Gannets, Manx Shearwaters and Choughs.

Marloes beach is close by and well worth a trip.

The Griffin pub (500 metres walk from the boathouse) serves good food (seasonal).

There is a popular surfers cafe which serves great breakfasts and hot chocolates.

About the location

DALE

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 coast path and designated a SSSI, Dale also attracts birdwatchers and ramblers. Both West Dale beach and 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.
