The mile-long Marloes Sands has been voted one of the best beaches in Wales, and other sandy beaches are within easy reach. Boats to Skomer Island leave from nearby Martin's Haven. Puffins and other seabirds can be seen on the islands during the summer, and baby seals are born on the beaches below Marloes deer-park in late summer and autumn.

About Jane Warr

I am a semi-retired teacher with grown-up children. I live a few miles away from Marloes and have lived in this corner of Pembrokeshire for the last 30 years.

Jane Warr purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Jane Warr chose St Brides Bay, St Davids & The West Coast

I bought and furnished this holiday home in July 2014. I chose the house because it is quiet, sunny and comfortable, and is easy to get around - no stairs and few steps. It is in the village of Marloes with the advantages of shop, pub, café and bus, but being on the edge of the village it looks out over hedges and fields. It is within easy reach of spectacular beaches and cliff scenery, as well as being close to the Skomer Island boat departure point.

Marloes is an excellent spot for a holiday home, being near fantastic beaches, wonderful cliff walks, and the island boats. There are footpaths through the fields in several directions from the village, and a coastal bus in three directions, so people can visit without needing a car.

What makes this bungalow unique

I was pleased to be awarded a high 4-star rating by the Visit Wales inspector, and this has been renewed every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Quite possibly the cleanest and best-equipped and loved holiday accommodation I've stayed in. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path beats Cornwall for dramatic cliffs and secret beaches. Highlight - sitting on a path on Skomer photographing a chilled puffin less than a metre away. A bucket list tick! Will have to return to this beautiful peninsula. A holiday home I would be happy to return to and recommend to others. The proximity to Skomer is a real draw!"

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

Situated in the quiet village of Marloes and very convenient for the glorious Marloes & Musselwick beaches and coastal path made for an ideal base for walking and general exploration. Spacious, very clean, peaceful, comfortable and cosy - all I really need from a holiday base. Highly recommended.

Glebe Corner 'to stay or not to stay'?

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for negative comments you will find none here (please move on...). The house (and garden) was ideally located, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and very spacious - plenty of room for four adults not to be tripping over each other. The village shop/Post Office was a little treasure chest for fresh supplies. Jane was attentive without being invasive and is obviously an owner who cares enough to ensure her guests are having a carefree stay.

The information provided in the hallway, both local and wider Pembrokeshire, was also useful (as were the games on a late evening providing much hilarity with the odd glass or two.....). For those of us in the party who had never visited this wonderful part of the UK before it certainly lived up to expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would not hesitate to recommend Glebe Corner to anyone – therefore the answer to the title is, without question, STAY!!

Glebe Corner is a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Glebe Corner and we enjoyed our stay every bit as much as our first visit.

Glebe Corner is very well looked after, has everything you need, everything works and it is beautifully clean. The owner is very helpful. The garden is attractive and has lots of sun and we enjoyed sitting out in it.

Marloes village has an excellent shop/PO and the local buses stop in the village making it easy to explore the coastal path.

Glebe Corner makes an excellent base for enjoying the beautiful Marloes Beach, taking the boat to Skomer Island to see the puffins and for walking the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastal path. We also met the friendly and knowledgeable Pembrokeshire birders at a twitch for a white winged black tern.

Two restaurants in nearby Dale serve locally caught fish and we had good meals in them both.

This part of Pembrokshire as well as being stunningly beautiful is also relatively off the beaten tourist track and is wonderfully uncrowded, we walked for miles along the coastal path and would see less than half a dozen people.

We are already looking forward to our next visit to the fab Glebe Corner.

Just about perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

It's actually quite difficult to write a considered review of this property - in most reviews there are pluses and minuses to balance, but in this case there weren't any minuses. We stayed there as a couple, a second couple wouldn't have found the place at all cluttered. The house was spotlessly clean, while the bed in the main bedroom is definitively a queen bed (and very comfortable). The kitchen is very well equipped, the living room very comfortable (if you want to bring any of your own movies etc to watch, the advertised DVD player is actually Blu-Ray as well), but the best part is the large, warm and very sunny conservatory, where we lived for much of the time. There's a very pleasant outdoor area (though a little cold for us to spend too much time in).

As for the surrounding area, you really can't do much better. The coastal path was glorious with a superb array of pinks, yellows, whites and blues to complement the rocks and sea. You're 15 minutes walk from the nearest beach (Marloes Sands is probably about 25 minutes walk but also an easy drive. Don't overlook the excellent bus service which can whisk you up the coast if you fancy doing walks farther afield but don't want to drive - all the information is available in the excellent folders provided in the property. Skomer is beautiful this time of year - the puffins in full flow standing outside their burrows chatting to each other...

We recommend the sublime ginger flapjacks in the local shop, and we had a very acceptable meal in the Lobster Pot (about five minutes walk).

Sometimes you can write a review and feel the need to add "well if I was being really picky, I might suggest .......", but I can't actually think of anything lacking in this property. Unconditionally recommended.

Location

From the Owner

I bought and furnished this holiday home in July 2014. I chose the house because it is quiet, sunny and comfortable, and is easy to get around - no stairs and few steps. It is in the village of Marloes with the advantages of shop, pub, café and bus, but being on the edge of the village it looks out over hedges and fields.

Marloes is an excellent spot for a holiday home, being near fantastic beaches, wonderful cliff walks, and the island boats. There are footpaths through the fields in several directions from the village, and a coastal bus in three directions, so people can visit without needing a car.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The spectacular cliffs of the Marloes peninsula (mostly National Trust), with wonderful views of the coast and offshore islands, are easily accessible from the Pembrokeshire Coast long-distance path. Several sandy beaches are within easy reach, including the famous mile-long Marloes Sands - frequently called one of the best beaches in Britain. Boat trips to Skomer Island leave from nearby Martin's Haven.

A 10-minute drive or bus to busy Dale for kayaking, sailing and windsurfing. A 10-minute drive or bus to St.Bride's Beach - a small sandy cove great for rockpools and children, with car-park and WC very close.

Travel:

Marloes is half an hour's drive from Haverfordwest, on the A40 west of Carmarthen. A car is useful but not essential - there are stations at Haverfordwest and Milford Haven, from where a taxi or the coastal bus can take you to Marloes. You can walk from the village through the fields to the cliffs and beaches in several directions. There is a coastal bus starting in the village and going along the coast in three directions three times a day in summer.

Further Details:

Marloes village has a pub, shop with post office and cafe, church, childrens play-park and a coastal bus service.

Water-sports are available in Dale (10 mins drive or bus), where you can have lessons or hire kayaks, windsurfers and sailing dinghies. More water-sports are available at Broadhaven and Newgale, further north along the coast.

There is good birdwatching nearby at Marloes Mere, Dale Pools, and Marloes Deer Park, from where seals can often be seen. Boats leave Martin's Haven (5 mins drive) to go to Skomer and Grassholm Islands and on round-island boat-trips.
