This is a wild garden with lots of wildlife; feel free to fill up the bird feeders. The garden has a hard based patio with an outdoor table tennis table there are bats under the table but I do advise you bring some ping pong balls with you as they do go missing the table can also be used for dinning on. There is also table and 8 chairs (parasols in the airing cupboard) plus a large gas barbecue (please clean after use, barbecue tools in a bag in the airing cupboard, plastic plate, and glasses that fit into each other in the kitchen). The next tier has a fire pit (this must only be used after 6 o'clock at night by adults and is at your own risk) - a great place to sit and watch the stars and toast marshmallows, large pieces of driftwood makes up our seating area around the fire pit. At the end of this patio is a clothes line (pegs under the sink in utility room). The next tier up just has a small table and chairs (tea for 2) The next tier is our “beach” with buoys, lobster pots a table and chairs with sea views on the left hand side there is an area with bench seating for you to sit and enjoy the view of the sea and watch the comings and goings of boats. The garden backs onto woodland where the wildflowers are in abundance. We have tried to keep the garden filled with mainly wildflowers with a bug hotel and a secret fairy garden. The wood behind the garden is not our land but you are welcome to walk in it. Front garden: The front garden also has a seating area with a table and 6 seats (parasol in the airing cupboard) from where you can enjoy the last bit of sun for the day and watch the sunset. The garden is edged with hydrangeas, and shrubs the rest of the garden is put down to pebbles. You are elevated from the road so you are able to watch the comings and goings of the seaside village. We have a pair of very friendly robins who always like being fed. Dale village offers: The Griffin Inn: The award-winning Inn is run by our friends Simon & Sian .specializing in locally caught fish dishes as well as a full restaurant menu an experience not to miss, they have an extension, with beautiful views of the bay. Coco's Brasserie run by Shelly and Chris: Located in the friendly Dale yacht Club nonmembers welcome: The yacht club offers a friendly greeting dog friendly. Food is served daily, Evening meals are served in the Restaurant They also do Sunday lunch. The Boathouse café: With their infamous all-day breakfast, their locally caught crab sandwich and of course Pembroke promise ice-cream (must admit these are my favorites) here you can also buy basic provisions and all sorts of gifts a real Aladdin's cave. Marks Fresh Lobster, Crab and Fish Dale Our good friend Mark has fished the waters in Dale since he was a child and now runs a small family fishing boat business promoting sustainable fishing with a personal touch. He offers fresh fish, lobster, and crab direct from our boat to your plate. They can meet you at Dale pontoon to buy from the boat or they can deliver to the house they only live down the road. They also have Lobster and crab available in their tanks at their home. Mark also does a fantastic seafood BBQ packs they provide the disposable BBQ. Be-Gemmed a handmade jewelry shop: Run by Philip & Helen who are so welcoming and it is so interesting watching them work in the actual shop making Sterling Silver jewelry incorporating semi-precious stones and beads, crystal, shell and other natural materials. The Old Stables Heritage Center: Which the community runs with interesting displays and information of Dale village and surrounding areas new and old open most days entry free. St James the Great church: Built in the Anglo-Norman Times is a very friendly congregation (see outside of the church for service times) West Wales Wind Surf & Sailing Shop: Offer you both: water sports instruction, the hiring of equipment kayaks etc. and a shop. WWWS fully accredited RYA training center with highly qualified and experienced instructors. There is a range of courses on offer to cater for all ages and abilities from beginners to experienced sailors. Teaching takes place in the mile-wide bay at Dale. Broadside boat charter: Is run by our friend Andy Truelove who provides fishing trips, and chartered boats which are available off the pontoon - all equipment is provided and all levels are catered for: from the novice to the experienced sea fisherman. They provide sea angling; shark fishing, diving and wildlife pleasure trips, a great day out. West Wales Windsurf and Sailing Who offer RYA courses in sailing, windsurfing, and powerboating, as well as courses in surfing, and kayaking. They have courses to suit everyone. Dale offers two beaches; Turn left out of the house to West Dale Beach.15 minutes walk from the house or 5 minutes if you take the car. Check tides on tide timetable provided in the information pack. Dog-friendly (don't forget to pack water for the dog).There are no amenities here so we always pack a loo roll, useful for all sorts of things! The crosscurrents are strong so we recommend that you do not go out of your depth if bathing as there is no lifeguard at this beach. Walk out the house, turn left and follow the one way until you get to the castle. Continue straight on and up the gravel track past the castle (instead of following the road around). Don't follow the track left either but go over the fence straight across the field heading for the horizon. There are cows in the field. Then you'll find yourself looking down on the beach! It's about a mile. Or you can take the car (useful if you are taking a lot of things down to the beach). Again, go around the one-way system and just before the church you will see a left hand turning, go up the lane and at the top you will see roadside parking. There is a footpath down to the beach. The walk down the cliff is steep but there are steps and it's well worth the effort. This beach is a great place. It is a large sandy beach with pebbles, rock pools, and surf. Take beach games, a bucket & spades is a must, fishing net for the rock pools, body-boards, surfboards or just a book. I recommend that you take food and drink with you as we always stay longer than we plan. Matches and paper are a good idea as there is always lots of driftwood to build a fire. Great surfing while being quite a small bay, it can pick up some massive swells because of its South West facing aspect. The area has an abundance of wildlife including birds, seals, dolphins, and porpoise. The cliffs and coastal path also provide stunning views and the chance to see a wide variety of beautiful wildflowers. Or turn right out of the house one minute walk to Dale front. Is a lovely shingle beach with sand at the far end of the beach. A busy pontoon with boats coming and going and children crabbing, windsurfers, kayaking and sailing There is a Lifeguard and safety boat on duty during the summer. It has been awarded European Blue Flag Status More

Comfortable,well maintained and furnished. Would accommodate up to 8 easily.A good base from which to explore Pembrokeshire. The garden is pretty and terraced but quite steep, leading up to the woods and very young children might need a watchful eye kept on them.

About the neighbourhood
1970, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path was the first National Trail in Wales. 75% lies within designated conservation sites and 85% within the boundaries of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.As well as offering walkers spectacular coastal scenery and wildlife, the Trail also passes through a landscape in which humans have lived for centuries and which they too have helped shapeThis is an area largely forged out of the activities of fishing and farming, as shown by the small, coastal settlements and the farmed landscape. These villages were not just providers of food, they also linked Pembrokeshire to what was, in the days before road and rail, the major highway of the sea.Along the path you can see many reminders of this maritime tradition from the Neolithic cromlechs and Iron Age promonto...
Getting around
I recommend you have a car, but there is a great little bus service that operates the whole of the coastal path and into town Cycling is a great way to see the scenery. Kayaking is a great way to see the coast. But walking is my preferred method of transport to see the local beaches and coastal path
