  • "Cobwebs and spiders in the bedrooms."

    ..dust on mirrors where not been cleaned ....but apart from that the Anchorage was fantastic...no Wi-Fi though and poor phone signal and also there were 4 mouldy tea bags left in a teapot....the cleaners need to check everything....the owner was fantastic and very informative about the house and the local area..would go back

  • "Inside the cottage was quite dark and the lights had to be on even though the weather was sunny."

    There were no 'grab rails' in any of the bathrooms including the downstairs shower. Car charging was only available via outside 13A sockets which not all worked. Fortunately I had taken both types of charge cables. Unless the car is capable of being charged via 13A sockets there is NO car charging facility and therefore very misleading in the description of the property The lounge area was quite large but there was only a small TV in the room needs a larger screen. Toilet flushes very difficult to use.

  • "Lovely location so near a crabbing beach."

    Fabulous grounds, a children's heaven for exploring and imaginative adventures. Loads of room for a large family with area for solitude. Plenty of equipment. Some duvets need upgrading and downstairs shower is not accessible for a wheelchair user.

  • "Cottage ideal for a large group."

    Almost perfect location but visitors need to be aware that there is no reliable WiFi. Can sometimes work in one of the bedrooms or in the fort in the garden. Also The Brook Inn in St Ishmael is currently closed. None of this a problem for us. Wonderful nearby beaches and children had a great time crabbing and surfing. Everyone very friendly and helpful.

  • "The location is ideal for families and the accommodation and surrounding extensive grounds provided ideal facilities for the variety of ages within our party from our 3½-year-old grandaughter to her 83-year-old grandad."

    Our grandson loved the fort and we all enjoyed crabbing from the causeway at low-tide - great old fashioned family fun!. Who needs the internet, video games or gameboys?

  • "The cottage was more than big enough for our party of nine."

    Getting together in the evenings in the comfortable living room . or sitting outside in the garden watching the wildlife . I wish i owned this place. If you can . Take a walk along the pembrokshire coast path which is just outside the front gate. As arnie says I'll be back.

    I did send a message before our stay asking some questions about wi-fi and local pubs, but I got no reply, so not happy about that

    We lost our WiFi when the mast at Angle was shut down. Service had been horrible being off about half the time. The Pembrokeshire County Council has brought in the Broadway Broadband Company who are installing a fibre optic cable system around the county. The Anchorage has obtained a grant of £7000 pounds for a connection.. Now in January 2022 the system is being installed in Dale and St Ishmaels. The cable should reach Sandy Haven later this year. The project has been delayed for a year because it was found that the existing underground cable ducts were filled with mud. John Roobol . Property Owner

About the location


Haverfordwest 8 miles.

Milford Haven is a busy little town overlooking the Cleddau Waterway. The once thriving fishing industry of this town has been replaced with a picturesque marina with a delightful Mediterranean feel. The unique little shops, galleries, tea rooms and restaurants around the marina offer leisurely shopping and a great variety of fine dining, including locally caught fresh fish dishes. The award-winning Torch Theatre offers a variety of entertainment and with a cinema, restaurant and bar, is a great place for all the family. Sit and enjoy the water views or have some fun and try ten pin bowling! This waterside town is perfectly located to discover all Pembrokeshire has to offer - the wonderful sandy beaches, coastal path, boat trips, castles, museums, Britain's smallest "city", St Davids, with its magnificent cathedral, theme parks and so much more.
