About Dale

Dale peninsula is at the extreme south west tip of Pembrokeshire, which itself is the county at the far south west corner of Wales. The village lies in a sheltered valley with beaches at both its west and east facing ends. West Dale faces directly towards the wild Atlantic while Dale beach is sheltered and a mecca for watersports. Dale is an unspoilt village in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The traditional activities of agriculture and fishing still take place and have been joined by tourism as a major aspect of the area. The village is a popular location for family holidays – safe beaches and lots of water-based activities such as sailing, swimming, surfing, kayaking and windsurfing. 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 wild flowers. Its location on the long distance path of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park make the village a centre for walkers and those wishing to explore the offshore islands and their flora and fauna.

Local Attractions

  • Beaches
  • Wildlife
  • Places to Eat
  • Coastal Walks

Sanderling House is in easy reach of dozens of beautiful beaches, West Dale being only 15minute walk from the house and of course the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Check out all the beaches on Sanderling website.

Explore the amazing wildlife that makes its home on the Pembrokeshire Coast - not forgetting the exciting array of seasonal wildlife which also loves to visit Pembrokeshire year after year.

The Pembrokeshire Coast is a gem among the landscapes of Britain. Much of it is unspoiled and untouched by the intensities of modern living and farming, so it provides an ideal home to many native species that have disappeared from other parts of the UK.

Rare birds such as choughs, skylarks and the stonechat choose the coastal heathland to make their home. Bats and many bird species hunt along the lines of twisting hedgerows, rich with wild flowers, whilst Atlantic grey seals give birth on our shores and dolphins and porpoises play in the waves.

As if these local characters aren’t enough, we are lucky to attract a vast array of extraordinary creatures who return every year to Pembrokeshire’s shores. These include basking sharks, orcas, blue whales, blue sharks, sunfish, various jellyfish, turtles and Risso dolphins. You are very lucky indeed if you catch a glimpse!

Just around the corner from the house is the Griffin Inn reknowned for its fresh fish.  Also within easy reach are The Moorings Restaurant and The Boat House Cafe. For further details of more places to eat look at Sanderling website.

Dale is surrounded on 3 sides by the Pembrokeshire Coast Path so there's plenty of superb walks to be enjoyed along the paths around Dale.
