The Rocket Carthouse

A grade II listed building on the outskirts of Angle, The Rocket Carthouse was once the Coastguard watchtower and the property enjoys panoramic sea views.

Luxuriate in the comfortable window seat and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening while you watch the lights twinkle across the water. Unique block wooden flooring on the ground floor leads via the living area to the cleverly appointed kitchen. An enclosed garden and patio are perfect for eating alfresco or alternatively sample the pubs of Angle only 1.5 miles away. For the more energetic the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is across the road and beaches are nearby. A truly unusual property.

The tower bedrooms have a steep wooden loft ladder which provides through access to all floors, so unsuitable for some.

NO CHILDREN UNDER 7 YEARS EXCEPT FOR BABES IN ARMS.

Discounts for small parties on request, please enquire on booking - 01437 765765 or 01437 767600.

In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Rocket Carthouse (Board of Trade Rocket Apparatus Station no. 11) was built at the end of the nineteenth century and was the base for the coastguard cliff-rescue team with rockets, lines and breeches buoys. It was in use by the Board of Trade until the 1930s, with a team of about 20 rescuers. It was listed in 1996 as a very prominent local landmark on a raised vantage point and as a significant monument to the Coastguard Service. The original photograph of the team is in Angle Village Hall. The rockets were transported to the site of disaster on a horse drawn cart and fired towards the ship in distress carrying a line to secure the breeches buoy to rescue passengers and crew. This is how the house got its name.

The living room was originally where the cart which carried the rockets was kept. The property was originally owned by the Mirehouse family and leased to the Board of Trade. The Mirehouse family still own most of the Angle Estate. It was bought from the Campbells of Stackpole (later to become the Earls of Cawdor) in 1805. The Stackpole Estate is now a National Trust property. A Colonel Mirehouse built many of the houses in Angle village, whose style is echoed in the lookout tower of The Rocket Carthouse. It is believed he did so to remind himself of his time in India.

Angle is not a typical sprawling Welsh community but has evolved from the original Norman feudal system of strip farming and much of the village community make their living working for the Estate. It is believed that the Estate was originally a gift to a knight after the Norman Conquest. The previous owners extended The Rocket Carthouse and the current owners completed its renovation by restoring the tower to its former glory within the confines of its listed status. The tower rooms are smaller than they first wished, but what a view!

Beaches near The Rocket Carthouse

Freshwater West is a huge sandy beach backed by sand dunes and has a rocky reef at the southern end of the beach. It is a haven for surfers, who are drawn to the area by the big Atlantic rollers, so it seems only natural that the beach should be the setting for the Welsh National Surfing Championships. The water here is in pristine condition and home to many species of bird life, seals and fish. However please note, it can be dangerous to swimmers because of strong undertows and hazardous quicksands, so families with young children should be on their guard. In the main season there are lifeguards patrolling the beach.
There is a large car park above the beach with W/C. Look out for Cafe mor parked here too- an award winning food outlet with a menu focused around local seafood dishes. Cafe Mor is available from Easter until the end of the summer season.

Once you get to the sand, you'll know it was worth the little stroll!

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!

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.

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.

Customer Reviews of The Rocket Carthouse

Tania and Daniel

What a unique and exciting holiday home. Fantastic views from all the windows and tower in property. I faced my fear and climbed the tower to watch the sunset - so glad that we did - so very worth it! Well stocked home, dvd's and games are fantastic. Freshwater West is just breathtaking. Would like to spend the rest of my life contemplating life the window seat, whilst watching the ocean...but must go home - unfortunately. We've had a lovely time and I am sure one day we will be back. Thank you very much for letting this place out, it makes us feel very lucky to have experienced and stay here.


Ann and Chris

We have had a superb week. Lucky with February weather, one wet day, the others mostly sunny and dry. Walks from West Angle beach were thoroughly enjoyed as were these from Stackpole Quay to Barafundle. A walk from Stackpole estate to Bosherston was also enjoyable - saw only my 2nd Kingfisher ever in the wild and grey herons roasting in a furtree. Hope to be back sometime.


Alison and Laurence

Lovely spot for a quiet week away - we'd seen this on the web 2 years ago so great to finally make it. Nice to sit in the window seat - and agree the oil refinery looks pretty at night. Very windy for a couple of days but everything seems to have survived. We did the coastal path from Freshwater Bay round to Angle - lots of climbs and descents, be prepared! Otherwise some walking on the beaches and lots of sitting enjoying the view. Replaced one light bulbs (wall rear window seat) couldn't find a bulb to replace dud in main ceiling light near brown setter. Old bulb plus a cracked glass we found on Kitchen windowsill. Thanks for a lovely stay.


The Bryants

Wonderful little cottage with superb views. (Heating needs to be on during arrival though as the building takes at least 24 hours to warm up). Freshwater bay is a must and the stackpole Inn (15 mins drive away) is superb for food and drink.


The McDerrots

Love the area, love the house, had a great time!


The Deakin Family

Great holiday! The house is fantastic, the beaches are amazing, especially Freshwater West. Manorbier castle is well worth a visit and also the coastal walk around Angle. Thanks for a comfortable and relaxing stay


Chapman Family

Very comfortable, great views and a fantastic set of facilities - all of the kitchen equiptment that you could need and more! Loved West Angle beach, the point house pub, freshwater west beach. Recommend Bosherston Lily ponds and Broadhaven beach, beautiful! We would very much like to return.


The Sharpe Family

Love the views! Especially from the window seat at night! Fantastic beaches - especially Freshwater. Overall fantastic property in a great location.


Teh Adams Family

Great weather this week! Beaches at Saundersfoot and Broadhaven are the favourites. Barafundle excellent, a short trek across the top to get there but well worth the effort! Stackpole Inn, VERY nice for an evening meal - strongly recommended! Lily ponds are great too, a lovely beach at the far end! Lovely quirky cottage and great views from the top of the tower.


The Woodman Family

We could not have wished for a better holiday location. the house is just perfect, our 2 teenagers could not get over the tower rooms - so much fun! We felt so lucky to have such wonderful views without even leaving the house - it is a holiday in itself! The Hibernia and Old point house are great for food, the local beaches are amazing - thank you!!


Gibson Family

Brilliant cottage. very well equipped - lots of space for the surf boards, bikes, wet weather gear - warm and cosy! A great choise of beaches, try the Speculation Inn for food!


Katie and Pete

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in such an amazing home and location! Fantastic holiday, thanks again!


Rebecca, Stephen and Olivia

Another trip back to the fabulous home! Olivia (now just over one) loved running around the beaches and making mud pies! Yummy food in the Hibernia, we will be back again soon!


The Duffin Family

We have had a great week here and have really anjoyed staying at this lovely cottage. Thank you very much!


Sunny and Jane

Thank you so much for letting us use the cottage to celebrate Rach's 40th Birthday. We have had an amazing time - the cottage is absolutely fabulous!! It is a little piece of heaven. We have had the best weather too and loved Barafundle Beach and the Stackpole Inn! The hibernia was great too! We look forward to coming again in the future and we cannot wait to tell everyone about it! Thanks again, it is absolutely gorgeous here!!


Pauline and Doug

We have had a lovely short break in this amazingly quirky house. It is extremely comfy and we have appreciated being able to watch the boats in the haven from the lounge. Have been really lucky with the weather and able to visit seom fo the lovely coastal bays including Freshwater West, Broadhaven and Manorbier. Many Thanks.


Nick and Steph

The Rocketcarthouse certainly has the 'wow' factor! As we approached for the first time we were speechless. On further investigation we were enthralled by the view from the sitting room. and the amazing sight of Freshwater Bay from the bedroom window. We could not resist climbing the ladders, well worth the effort. During the stay we have appreciated all the transuality so generously provided. Everything that we ahve needed had been to hand. Our delight in the house and surrounding area has resulted in us not straying far. The food was delicious at the Hibernia Inn, the shop could not have been more helpful, providing the odd provisions and papers. We are reluctant to leave tomorrow, cannot wait to return, many, many thanks!


The Peters family

We don't want to leave the cosy, quirky, beautiful Rocket Carthouse. We have had a really lovely holiday and the weather has been kind. Kids and dog have braved the sea - Freshwater West is exceptional and dog friendly. Recommend Picton Castle, St. Davids, Pembroke Castle and Carew Castle.


The Harvey family

Wonderful holiday, fantastic location and we'd definitely love to return. All of the little extras in this well appointed home were appreciated. The kids adored the tower room. The mackerel fishing trip from Tenby was a big success - freshly caught and barbecued fish such a treat.


The Morton family

We have all enjoyed our week here in Angle, but the highlight of it has been staying in this wonderful house! It has been a cosy and comfortable house for all of us. The uniqueness of the tower and the decoration has proved to be a special aspect fpr all of us and our memories of the place are sure to be re-lived for years to come. The tower and the trapdoors made the experience fun - it feels more like a treehouse or something rather than a house! The views from the top are spectacular. The jacuzzi bathis great, all the furniture and equipment is perfect and we have loved our stay! Thank you! And I hope we can visit again.


Wilde family

Beautifully presented house, even cosy in 45mph winds this week. Lovely views, fabulous scenery, great expanses of sandy beach at Freshwater West.

What a unique place. The window bed in the siting room has the best view of the sunrise from the comfort of your duvet. The history of Rocket Cart House makes it all the more interesting.


Lucy & Roddy Butt

This is our second visit here and the house did not disapoint. V warm and comfortable We enjoyed blustery walks on the beaches and the best part was being able to see the strs so clearly

Superb break! We’ve enjoyed all aspects of this fascinating Rocket Cart House from the “home from home” comfort – so well equipped- to its superb location, great nearby beaches and places to visit.

A lovely place to spend the half term break. Fantastic variety of weather – made the most of the sunshine to walk the coast path and explore the rock-pools on Freshwater West beach. Loved the views and the great DVD collection for the rainy days. Thank you.


Brand family

Had a fantastic week. Beautiful house. special treat looking at the stars from the tower at 4:30am-wifes idea!!! Amazing extremes of weather. Watched snowstorm,gales,thunder and lightning from bay window-spectacular! We'll be back!


Corless Family

The pleasure of our stay here has been enhanced by the memory of the excitement we experienced on 11/11/95 when we were on the three main bidders for the property at its auction on that date. Seeing what others have since done to beautify it and make it so comfortable wins our full admiration and praise. we've greatly enjoyed our stay in a place that has been an abiding facination to us for years!


Lusher family

This amazing little house is full of surprises-had a fab time! The best part probably just on the doorstep, out of the drive,turn right, 20 yards, left over the stile through two fields {one full of mad cows} over two more stiles, then through the vegetation, to the freshwater beach. The view was amazing-well worth the trek!


Hawkins family

I thought it was really cool and the views were amazing, thanks for a really good holiday. It was wonderful.I loved it!And the tower was amazing.We spent more time up there than in the actual house! The views were amazing, the villagers so nice and friendly,thank you for an absolutely fantastic holiday.A really spectacular house with a lovely atmosphere and tremendous views! Scary tower steps, but so beautifulit's worth it..
