Beaches near The Dovecote

Broad Haven
Broad Haven (west) is a large, magnificent area of sand, which runs the entire length of Broad Haven Village and is a regular Blue Flag award winner. It is a favourite with both bathers and water sports enthusiasts and is ideally facilitated with pubs, shops, restaurant, cafe etc. 
Broad Haven's westerly facing sands offer excellent conditions for kite-surfing, kite-buggying, walking and sandcastle building. 
It’s not hard to see why this beach is one of the most popular windsurfing beaches in this area and home to Haven Sports water sports shop. There is a car park at the southern end of the beach opposite Haven Sports and a larger car park a small distance from the beach at the North End of the bay. 

Little Haven
Little Haven is a picturesque old fishing village with steep streets that descend to a sandy beach with a slipway for small boats, including the local inshore rescue boat. The beach itself is popular with swimmers, divers and kayaks in the summer months. At low tide you can walk along the beach to Broad Haven, passing Settlands on the way, there are numerous caves and rock pools to explore however Settlands is only accessible at low tide so be careful not to get cut off here.
Broad Haven
Druidstone Haven can be found by following the winding coastal road between Nolton Haven and Broad Haven. It is a well hidden, long and sandy beach, enclosed on three sides by spectacular cliffs. Access to the beach is by two fairly steep footpaths. There are no amenities on the beach, but the nearby Druidstone Hotel has a good menu and a lovely outdoor seating area, providing the most glorious views of the beach and as far out to sea as the eye can see.
There is only limited parking on the side of the coastal road, but it is also possible to stop here on the Puffin Shuttle Bus.
The cove of Nolton Haven is a small inlet of pebbles and sand. At low tide it's revealed to be a long and narrow beach, perfectly suited to sunbathers, as it has the added advantage of being sheltered by high cliffs on either side. With the car park behind the beach, Nolton Haven is a good starting point for excellent cliff-top walks along parts of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, finished off with lunch in the Mariners Arms!
St Ishmaels
A large expanse of subtly coloured sand is revealed at this estuary when the tide retreats. Suitable for bathing, although swift currents do arise at some stages of the tide. There are many rock pools for youngsters to explore as well as the stream and stepping stones on the western side - care needed when tide is coming in. There is a free car park on the grass which is adjacent to the footpath.
This lovely and secluded beach is also open to dogs all year around.
Newgale
Newgale provides the ideal location for watersports. There is always plenty of space on the long, two mile stretch of flat sand and whilst the Atlantic Ocean rollers ensure some exciting surf, it is an ideal beach for the young and not so expert. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the school holidays. There is a cafe at both ends of the beach, the Duke of Edinburgh Inn is located on the seafront and there are regular visits by the ice cream van in the summer.
St Brides Haven is a shingle cove with sand exposed at low tide. It is excellent for swimming, bathing, snorkelling and diving. There are plenty of rock pools to explore making it great fun for families.
St Ishmaels
Lindsway Bay is a sandy cove situated less than 1 mile from St Ishmaels. It is a lovely bathing spot for families, along with being popular with surfers. The nearest parking is in St Ishmaels village by the sports field. From here take the footpath along the west side of the field to the coast path, follow the coast path for approx 200 yards eastwards. Access to the beach is then down a steep zig-zag path with stone and concrete steps. At the bottom it is a short walk over the sandstone boulders to reach the sand. Once you get to the sand, you'll know it was worth the little stroll!
Dale
The sheltered bay of Dale is perfect for watersports - home to sailing, windsurfing and a watersports centre. Dale has a mostly shingle beach with some sand at low tide and an attractive seafront. Car parking is plentiful in the purpose built car park just across the road from the beach.
West Dale is a stunning, secluded cove enclosed by towering cliffs and accessed only via steps from the Coastal Path - either by footpath through Dale or by parking on the roadside (very limited). At low tide, this tranquil little spot of sand makes the perfect spot for a bit of sunbathing and relaxing.
This is where King Henry VII, born at Pembroke Castle, landed his army on the way to the battle of Bosworth. West Dale is very popular with surfers, at its best between low and mid tide - although its not for the inexperienced surfer and make sure you know where the rocks are!
West Dale beach is open to dogs all year around!

Historic Places near The Dovecote

Pembrokeshire Motor Museum has over forty motor cars on display, from veteran cars to classic cars. For each car on display, you can see a complete history. All cars are in excellent condition and are occasionally used by their owners for vintage car rallies etc. so please bear in mind that cars may not always be on display. The Motor Museum is also home to a licensed bar, a magazine and video lounge where you can read and watch all about motoring.
Originally constructed in the 12th Century as a fortress made from timber, and has seen visits from a number of famous names including Oliver Cromwell and King Richard II. The castle was later reconstructed in stone, and was often used to house prisoners before being replaced by a new prison building inside the castle grounds in the 19th Century. This building is now home to the Pembrokeshire Records Office. Not much remains of the stone castle other than the stone wall which grandly looks upon the small town below it. A must-visit is the Town Museum, located in the Old Prison Governor's House. With artefacts, prints, paintings and models, this museum tells the history of the castle and the surrounding town.
Milford Haven
The Museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Milford Haven. The Museum collection reflects all of these aspects of the town's history, but focuses particularly on the maritime history. The Museum is a voluntarily run museum.

A military fortress, museum and cafe located within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The museum at Chapel Bay Fort is illustrated and explains military technology and weaponry through the ages, with a variety of displays including artillery and associated tools and instruments, WW I, Bomb Disposal and Waterloo amongst others. Volunteers are on hand to answer any question and add to your appreciation of the displays.

Guided tours are conducted by a dedicated team of volunteers and provide access to areas of the fort which are otherwise out of bounds to the public. Tours present further information about Chapel Bay Fort and the defences of Milford Haven and the Royal Dockyard at Pembroke Dock, alongside information about the large exhibits displayed on the terreplein of the fort.

A tour lasts approximately 40 minutes, and is included in the entrance fee to the museum.

Solva Woollen Mill is the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire and is now the only mill in Wales specialising in flat woven carpets, rugs and runners. Its a family business but visitors are welcome to the mill to wander through the weaving sheds, chat to the weavers as they are warping, splitting yarn or weaving. There is a mill shop housed carding engines and spinning mules and a tearoom which is located in the old dye shed, selling tea, coffee and homemade cakes.
Scolton Manor was built in 1842 as a family home, and was even used as a hospital during World War 2. It is now a Victorian Manor House and Museum, set in a luxurious 60 acres of country park and woodland, with a wide variety of wildlife. The park is open all year, whilst the Manor House is closed during the winter months. The Manor House will be opening again in March 2015, and times will be confirmed nearer the time. Please Note: Admission to the Park is free, whilst charges to the Manor House apply. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times, and are allowed in the Park only.
Built in the 13th Century, this castle is half fortified manor house and half fully developed medieval castle surrounded by forty acres of land and gardens. The castle and gardens is closed over the winter months for essential maintenance but is open for special occasions. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
Pembroke Dock's Flying Boat Centre is unique to the UK. Learn about the RAF Pembroke Dock, the worlds largest flying boat station and the famous Sunderland and Battle of the Atlantic.
The birthplace of Saint David, this Chapel was built in 1934 on the site of the original house where Non had lived. The Chapel and its accompanying Holy Well were built in dedication to Saint Non, and have since become popular destinations for pilgrimages. Legend has it that springs appeared at each of the significant milestones of Saint David's life, and many believe this Holy Well appeared during his birth and holds many special healing powers.
A popular destination for pilgrimages, this Cathedral is a huge attraction for those interested in Welsh history and/or religion. St. David's Cathedral as we know it today replaced a monastery which was originally founded on the site by Saint David around 589 AD. Not only is it named after our Patron Saint of Wales, but it also contains a shrine to him. The Cathedral still operates a traditional communion service and also holds various special events such as the annual Cathedral Festival. Please note: Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.

 

Customer Reviews of The Dovecote

Will & Anna

We had a lovely time - sun, walks on the beach and a fun New Years Eve at The Druidstone. Thank you very much


Lincoln Family

Lovely, cosy base to explore local area. Great walk to Little Haven for a drink and sandwich. Marloes is fantastic! Thank you


Maynard

Enjoyed Haverfordwest museum, castle and farmers market (fridays). Broad Haven is a great running beach for dogs, Carew Castle and Mill is well worth a visit.


Nicki, Rob, Bea & Martha Jacobs

We've had a wonderful 2 weeks exploring this beautiful area. Thank you for your hospitality and providing such a well equipy and clean cottage - best we've ever been in! The time has passed so quickly and we seem to have spent most of it around Marloes, though we did manage to get to Pembroke Castle which was by far the best castle we've ever explored! We will hopefully contact you with the name of the mystery plant - if we can suss it out! See you next year


The Lawrences

Picked a perfect week to come down, beautiful weather in a glorious location. Cottage has been perfect very homely and well stocked. Wouldnt have picked anywhere else. Thanks!


Jayne & Robert

What a great week we have had. Weather fantastic. Cottage is lovely - Great location. Thank you Alison for making us feel so welcome and for you advise on local walks and places to eat and drink. We had originally planned a walking holiday but with the weather being so hot we spent most of our time on the beach, with a few woodland walks. Wished we could of stayed longer, Thank you


Martin, Jill & Chester the dog!

Cottage is wonderful, location excellent for beach and cliff walks! Will definately return - relaxed and reluctant to go home!!


I & J Duncan & Fly - the dog!

Weather has been wonderful. Accomodation very comfortable. Pembrokeshire is beautiful and we will return next year!


The Stevens Family

We seem to have picked a perfect week weather-wise. Glorious warm sunshine that made an October day feel like August. Highlights? Wonderful beach walks with Cal (the dog) and Meredith (18mnths) enjoyed splashing in her first waves; Splendid sunsets at Newgale; and of course the welcome of our hosts! Thankyou! Diolch! P.S. Meredith loved your little sheep. As she says "Baaa!"


The Fuller Family

Highlight of our 16th visit to The Dovecote was the Havenlink ferry bus, Dale to Lawrenny and back on a glorious day. Also a visit to the lost world of Gwaun Valley and beer out of a jug at Bessie's Pub in Pontfaen. As always the cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped with a wonderful welcome from Alison (owner). Thankyou once again, see you in May 2010!


The Stirrup Family!

It would seem, on reading this 'historical' document, that the Welsh weather has been true to form and we have done our best to dodge the rain between showers! We have had a thoroughly enjoyable week both in and out and will certainly be returning to this part of Wales as we ran out of time to visit all the attractions in the area or indeed to build a sandcastle on the many beautiful nearby beaches. Highlight of the week: Folly Farm! Perfect for young children - indoor & outdoor fun. The old fashioned funfair rides brought back happy childhood memories for us too! Whatever the weather - enjoy your stay; we did!


The Natt Family

With no sign of sunshine in the sky our drive into the driveway of this wonderful little cottage certainly put a smile on our faces!! The children loved their little attic bedroom and playing with Bobby the dog. Although the weather really hasnt been on our side this week we seemed to have packed a lot it! Newgale beach - what a find - the surfers and kite surfers are amazing! Clerkenhill Adventure Farm - a really great spot for little ones! National Botanic Gardens - bit of a drive but a lovely visit and nice for kids to roam! Creative Cafe Haverfordwest and Narbeth - Great for a rainy day, do book, lovely atmosphere there! Sloop Inn, Porthgain - lovely little place for dinner in this little fishing village, do book! Carew Castle & Pembroke Castle - These were both really good, kids loved running round them and climbing. Both good value for money! A trip to Hilton Court is worth it, the little restaurant is great for lunch or cream teas. The gardens and pottery look great too! Also the Pemberton Chocolate Farm! All in all a great week had by all with 2 very exhausted but happy children!!


The Hay Family

Thankyou for a most enjoyable stay. We found the cottage very clean and well equipped, an excellent base for exploring one of our favourite holiday haunts.


The Chuter Family!

We've enjoyed a lovely week at this very welcoming cottage. Weather may have been up and down but it hasn't stopped us enjoying the lovely beaches at Broad Haven and along this coast. Had fun at scolton Manor on a damp day and a great day out at Tenby and Caldey Island, finding some spectacular scenery - including an amazing picnic spot on the way to Bosherston - a real hidden gem overlooking Caldey. Looking forward to returning soon. Thank you.

A lovely, snug little cottage. We particularly liked to be ablt to take Rosie for walks straight from the cottage. There are some excellent footpaths. Favourite day out - the lily ponds at Stackpole Estate at Bosherston. There is a 6 mile walk that includes the ponds, cliffs and two superb beaches. We must revisit the ponds in the spring when the waterlillies are all in flower. Thank ou for providing a map.
