The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
The Dale Peninsula is the sunniest place in Wales and has some of the lowest rainfall figures for the region. It forms the SW corner of Pembrokeshire an area full of history with many fine castles like Pembroke, the smallest city in Europe, St David's, with its wonderful cathedral and Bishop's Palace, a spectacular coast line of 186 miles that you can walk around on the coastal path. Inland is the Preseli Hills National Park with spectacular scenery and walking.
The seas off this coast offer ideal conditions for most water sports, sailing and fishing. Milford Haven and Haverfordwest both have golf courses. Riding is available near St David's as well as coasteering and other adventure sports.
Dale is a small coastal village with excellent facilities for all water sports including a slipway, pontoon and deep water mooring. Dale beach has no surf and opens onto Milford Haven the largest estuary in Wales. It is ideal for kayaks, canoes, sailing, windsurfing and fishing. RYA, surfing and water sports courses.Wet suits and equipment can be booked and hired in the village. Dale Yacht Club holds weekly race meetings during the summer and a regatta.
At low tides the estuary empties out exposing mud flats with all kinds of sea life and attracting many birds.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path snakes around the cliffs and beaches allowing you to walk to many local attractions or use the Puffin Shuttle bus that links the path and villages.
Boats leave from Dale for fishing trips and from nearby Martin's Haven to visit the bird sanctuaries off the coast and to land on Skomer or circumnavigate the island.

"Great location and very comfortable"
We have just returned from a lovely week in Coldstream Cottage. It is a very well situated cottage, just minutes walk from the beach, cafe and pub. Dale is a fantastic place with lots of walking opportunities, West Dale is a lovely beach and we walked around St Anns head which was great. If you like water sports there is plenty on offer with West Wales Sailing centre on your door step. My children loved the fact that they could catch crabs off the pier whenever the tide allowed. I think they were the resident experts on crab catching last week. They even helped some students who were staying at the field centre with their studies!!
The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable and felt like a home from home. I would recommend this cottage.
