The Gann Quarry

The Gann Quarry enjoys the most amazing location, nestling in fields just above the foreshore overlooking Dale Bay on the Gann Estuary. This is a designated SSSI area that teems with unique flora and fauna, a mecca for birdlife. Renovated throughout and furnished in a contemporary style, the main rooms offer panoramic views over the water. The lounge with wooden floor is dual aspect and the large picture windows maximise the wonderful outlook, while a wood burning stove ensures cosy evenings. In the modern fitted kitchen diner, washing up will never be a chore with these ever changing views of the estuary to admire. The paved terrace is an ideal spot to enjoy an alfresco meal on a summer’s evening while the sun slowly sinks, or to simply sit and savour the wonderful view over the waterway.

Walk 200 yards across the field and you are on the foreshore or, if you are feeling adventurous, take a more direct route and use the steps in the cliff down to the beach. Really tucked away, this is a perfect spot for sailors and bird watchers or those who simply enjoy messing around on the water. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is on your doorstep giving excellent opportunities to explore this unique area. You can walk round the coastline to the sandy bay at Lindsway, while a host of other beautiful sandy beaches including West Dale Bay, Marloes and Musslewick are all nearby. There is a local pub in St Ishmaels and a popular village pub serving excellent food across the estuary at Dale (approximately 4 miles by road) where there is also a restaurant at the Yatch Club and a variety of water sports to try.

A boat trip from Martins Haven round the islands of Skomer and Grassholm to see the seals, puffins and shearwaters is a must of any trip.

A truly magical holiday location.

Beaches near The Gann Quarry

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!
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!
Watwick Bay is a beautiful, secluded beach accessible only from the Coastal Path, approx. 1 mile South of Dale village, or half a mile walk from the roadside - care is needed as it is quite a steep walk down to the beach. There are some great rock pools to explore and also a few caves. It is a sheltered sun trap in the Summer and a popular spot for passing boats.
Marloes
Marloes Sands is a beautiful, isolated stretch of sand with rocky outcrops that are perfect for scrambling over. It is rarely busy and out of season you are likely to have it all to yourself! From the beach there are good views out to Skokholm and Gateholm Islands, the latter of which is at the North-West end of the beach and can be reached on foot at low tide. The remains of medieval settlements can be found on the island.
Surfing at Marloes Sands is usually excellent, but remember, there is a 1km walk to the beach from the car park.
Note: Keep an eye on the rising tide as it can cover the whole beach fairly quickly.
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
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.

The beach is very popular with divers heading out to explore the Skomer Marine Nature Reserve. Follow the Deer Park walk (a short walk around the Marloes peninsula) around the Coastal Path and you will find fantastic views out towards the off-shore islands, Skokholm and Grassholm - Skokholm lies to the south and Grassholm with its gannets is on the horizon. The rocky bays below the cliffs are used by seals and in the Autumn it is the perfect place to spot Seal Pups.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Pembroke
Built in 1093 with timber, before being rebuilt in 1189 with a stone structure, this castle is ovular in shape and surrounded by a mill pond. This castle has a gated house with a circulated keep, and has been extensively restored. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads.
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.
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.
Stackpole
Stackpole estate is a beautiful stretch of coastline owned by the National Trust, with sandy beaches, wooded valleys and lily ponds. Stackpole is a international nature reserve with a footpaths from Stackpole Court. Lots of wildlife habitat from otters, water birds and dragonflies and cliffs tiny coves and sandy dunes. From Stackpole you can reach Barafundle Bay which is a walk along the cliff path and down steep steps. Stackpole Quay itself also has a tiny harbour used by local fishermen and small pleasure boats.
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 Gann Quarry

Had a lovely holiday. Cottage very well equipped. Could not have aksed for more. Weather kind to us as well.


Shirley and Martin, Fudge and Pepper (Collies)

Spent a wonderful 24th Wedding Anniversary in this lovely cottage, which has a very special feeling about it. What a superb location, we know the area really well, but this is the most well equipped and practical place we've stayed. Very safe environment for our two collies. Lovely to sit outside in the moonlight listening to the sounds of the birds on the estuary. Have already booked for our 25th!!


Sue, Fran and Billy

A wonderful setting and a very practical, comfortable cottage for our first ever visit to Pembrokeshire. It's been a week of endless discoveries and marvellous coves, beaches and landscapes. Thank you very much.


The Bartlams

We have had a fabulous week. It was apleasure to stay in such a well equipped property with lovely decor. Lovely food at Lawrenny Quay and both the The Castle and St Brides Inn at Little Haven. As usual Marloes was spectacular - check tides before visiting as sea covers beach when in!


The Newmans

Thanks, we have had a wonderful time at this stunning location. We will be back if possible. The cottage is well equipped. Crabbing at Gann Bridge excellent. Sailing at Dale fantastic. Marloes Sands worth a visit.


Rachael, Michael, Anna, Luke and Charlie

Thank you for a lovely holiday. Beautiful location and beautifully equipped cottage. Weather couldn't have been better either!


Edd, Sarah, Henry and Rob

Fab property, conveniently located for everything we have wanted to do - Cycling, walking, beach climbing, scuba diving, coasteering... off home for a rest now.


Louise and Richard

Thank you. We had a wonderful peaceful and relaxing week. Can recommend all coastal walks, especially Sandy Haven but do go at low tide. Also enjoyed a look around Solva harbour and it's delightful cafe, great ice creams!! We will be back!


Alan, Deirdre and Missy

Thank you very. We've had a wonderful 2 weeks.


Paul and Tina

Excellent week exploring this part of Pembroke Coastal Path. Glorious position with ever changing views (and weather) Well appointed cottage with all we needed! Great variation of bird life in this tidal region.


Sue & Paul

Fantastic cottage, had a really relaxing holiday, will definitely book again.


Abbe & Fiona

In the many years we have visited Pembrokeshire this is the best cottage we have stayed in. The isolation is very refreshing & the area provides many natural gems – not least a visit to Skommer and the endearing Puffins. We hope to return and next time there may be less Welsh Wet and more summer to add to the [?idle?].


Tracey &D… Hopcyns

Had a wonderful time. Lovely cottage with fantastic views! Trip to Little Haven recommended – The Swan for food & the gallery for great sea sketches! We hope to return.


Neville and Siân Morley, Horley, Surney

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in your lovely cottage. We spent hours on the terrace, watching the waders and seabirds through the telescope. We still managed some brilliant walks and a night on Skomer to see the Manx Shear Waters come in – an eerie and magical experience. We had two splendid lunches at the Clock House in Marloes and the landlord at The Brook Innn in St Ishmaels kindly made us some sandwiches, even though he was hosting a large 40th birthday party. We loved Milford Haven and were delighted to find a splendid fish outlet at the Docks. We hope that we may come back.


Ann & David Devlin

Fantastic location and wonderful cottage. It would take some beating. Totally relaxing holiday.


Emma, Piers, Eve & Jessica

Fantastic cottage with everything you could possibly need. We have had a great stay despite some very rainy days. The views and location are great and we hope to return again.


Brind family

Wonderful cottage with lovely views, very well appointed. We all felt very much at home. Weather was mixed, very wet & gale force 8 first couple of days, then a lovely sunny and warm day which allowed us to make use of the patio. Turned wet again but the DVDs, games & books kept us amused. We love this part of the world and have holidayed in this area for the past 25 years but it was great to discover St Ishmaels and in particular The Gann Quarry. Thank you for opening your fantastic home for us to enjoy. Hope to return again soon.


Burton family

We loved the Gann Quarry – best cottage we have stayed in Pembrokeshire (there have been several)! Exactly as we like: remote, private, sea views & beach. Very well presented & equipped. All favourite beaches a short distance: Marloes, Barafundle, Broadhaven South & Freshwater West. Great boat trip around Skomer from St Martins Haven – many puffins, razorbills & guillemots & seals. Thoroughly enjoyed by all specially Peggy-Sue & Jim (JRTs). Will return asap!


Chris, Nic, Tom Ice & Bear

Thank you for letting us stay here. Absolutely beautiful.Sat for hours watching the view. Loved Marloes, Preseli Hills & Coastal Path. Dogs love the beaches :-) Will definitely be back (soon I hope!).

Alternative access is from another narrow lane leading to a rough, mud track along the foreshore and then across a grass field. The foreshore track is inaccessible during extreme high tides.
