The property

Blackrock Boathouse provides a wonderful holiday location right on the water front at Dale, Pembrokeshire.

Dale is famous for it's watersports, with sailing and windsurfing being very popular here.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is right outside the property and begs to be walked.

At the end of the bay is St Anne's Head and its lighthouse, guiding shipping into Milford Haven.

This is a magical place to stay with views over Dale beach and the rock pools just below the boathouse.

Marloes beach is nearby and you can take a boat trip from Martins Haven to the bird islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm where you can see numerous birds including puffins, gannets, Manx shearwaters and choughs.

The Griffin pub (500 metres walk from the boathouse) serves good food and there is also surfers cafe for breakfasts and hot chocolate.

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. Resting on the Pembrokeshire coastal 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.
