If youre looking for a more peaceful and remote holiday in Pembrokeshire, Wales, surrounded by beautiful vistas and away from the livelier towns such as Tenby and Saundersfoot, then Angle should be your first choice. Angle is small village situated a short 25 minute drive West from the historic town of Pembroke towards the coast. Dotted with small colour washed cottages Angle presents an idyllic scene and in 1995 it was made a conservation area by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
Angle has a long and proud seafaring history which is evident from the lifeboat station. If you are an avid history fan then you will enjoy learning about the history of the lifeboat station at Angle as well as several other points of historic interest. In the village you will come across St Marys Church and also the castle which is actually a single Pele tower which dates back to the 14th century. In the same century a number of guard towers were also built around the Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven area as lookouts for invasions, you can find three of these towers along the coast path around Angle. These are known as the East Blockhouse Battery, Thorn Island Fort and Chapel Bay Battery.
A must see is Thorn Island, an unusual sight being just 2 acres in size; Thorn Island is just off the coast of Angle and in 1854 the fort that dominates it was built to guard a place of naval importance. Divers recognise over 12 different shipwrecks surrounding the island but the most well-known of these is the Loch Shiel which sank in 1878 and lost a cargo of whisky, beer and gunpowder. Divers have since found untainted, drinkable bottles of beer from the wreckage some of which have sold for £1,000 in auctions.
As well as having a rich and fascinating history, whilst staying at Angle you will also find one of Pembrokeshires favourite beaches West Angle Bay which is also a site of special scientific interest. Wildlife is in abundance here as well as a special species of starfish known as the Cushion starfish which can sometimes be found in the many rock pools.
When you have tired of exploring and feel like relaxing whilst soaking up the views then visit the Old Point House which sits right on the seafront. Here you can enjoy real ales and delicious meals created from fresh locally caught fish.
To top it all off stay at 2 Bay View which is one of FBMs most sought after holiday cottages. Set in a peaceful location overlooking East Angle Bay, this property is one of 4 former lifeboat cottages, situated on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The extensive front garden leads directly on to the Path, with the East Angle Bay immediately beyond; an ideal spot for boating enthusiasts (the property has a mooring). During the season a ferry service runs twice daily from The Point to other coastal village resorts (weather permitting). If youre a water sports enthusiast Bay View presents a great base to stay as the beaches in the area are great for sailing and swimming.
