Morgan's Cottage Has One Of The Best Positions In Dale Right On The Water's Edge

Overview

Property

Updated: 22-Nov-2016
Cottage in Dale, Nr. Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire - The Living Room Looks Across The Bay, And You Can Fall Asleep To The Sounds Of The Sea

Morgan's Cottage has been recently refurbished, with central heating and a new kitchen. It is a family cottage not a de luxe rental and is subject to the usual effects of the wind and the sea! We hope the new heating will keep the cottage warm and cosy in the winter months. It has 2 double bedrooms and 2 twins. The living room has a wood burning stove and windows that look across the Gann, the beach and the pontoon. The small patio is a sun-trap in the afternoon. There is space for 2-3 cars. For basic provisions the local shop is just around the corner. The Griffin Inn, which serves food, is a short walk along the sea-wall. The Yacht Club across the street has a decent restaurant. Around the corner, Dale Sailing hires out windsurfers, dinghies, canoes etc and gives lessons.

About the Owner

Morgan's Cottage has been in the same family since before the war, and we are now in the fifth generation of family coming to Dale. Three of the houses along ‘the Brig’ date from the eighteenth century, when Dale was considerably bigger than it is now, with a busy port. Before our grandfather bought the cottage from the Dale Castle Estate in 1939, it was a Post Office and shop run by Polly Morgan. It is named after her.

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Morgan's cottage. The house is spectacular and the location is stunning. It is lovely to wake up to the sound of the waves lapping against the sea wall.

We had a lovely time and the locals at the pub made us welcome. We will deffinatley be coming back.

Location

From the Owner

My mother and her brother and sisters were evacuated to Dale during the WWII where they had spent previous family holidays. When the cottage became available, because of its wonderful position, our grandfather bought it, and rebuilt it after the war to be the family holiday home.

Coast/Beach:

Morgan’s Cottage lies on the road going up to Dale Fort and is on the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Dale has a pebble beach, though low tide reveals the sand. The pontoon is always full of children crabbing or jumping into the sea. There are fantastic beaches within a short distance: West Dale (15 mins walk) Marloes Sands (voted one of the best beaches in the Britain - 10 mins drive and 10 mins walk) and Watwick (30 mins coastal path walk, or 10 mins drive and 5 mins walk) .

Distances:

Marloes is about 10 mins drive. Haverfordwest about 25 mins, and Milford Haven 20. Little Haven and Broad Haven take about 30 mins and the surfing beach at Newgale a little longer. Pembroke Castle and St David's are an hour away.

Further Details:

Dale has a small shop, a café and a restaurant. About 3 miles away, Marloes has a village shop. Both Haverfordwest and Milford Haven have supermarkets, other shopping and banks.

Facilities

From the Owner

The property is right on the sea and overlooks the bay which is perfect for sailing, swimming, canoeing and fishing; the coastal path runs right past it; it's in the heart of the tiny village, a pebble's throw from the Griffin Inn which is the social centre; and it's a short walk to West Dale where there is a sandy beach and good surfing. Milford Haven and Haverfordwest (for shopping) are both about a 20 minute drive away.
