Angle is a peaceful little village tucked away in the far south-west of Pembrokeshire.
It is an idyllic place, dotted with small colour-washed cottages and is close to plenty of other beautiful locations and things to do to which will keep you amused. Located just a 15-minute drive away from the historic town of Pembroke, where the castle is famous for being the birthplace of Henry VII, you won’t be too far away from all the amenities you need. Additionally, Freshwater West, a well-renowned surfing beach and Harry Potter film set location, is just a short drive away, as are Stackpole Quay and Woods. Bosheston Lily Ponds and Barafundle Beach, which is listed among the top 10 in the world are also close by.
Thorn Island is a more unusual attraction just off the coast of Angle. It is a 1854 fort 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.
Angle really is perfect for a staycation without the crowds. Rest assured though; you will not be out of civilisation! You will have the choice of two pubs within the village, The Hibernia Inn and the 500-year-old Old Point House Inn, both of which serve delicious meals and real ales.
There is also a gorgeous, highly recommended café, Wave Crest which has an extensive menu including seafood and gorgeous cakes. Its location just off the beach makes it a perfect spot. Particularly as you can watch the boats go by along Milford Haven.
If you are wanting to make the most of Pembrokeshire’s stunning coastline then Angle is the place to stay. It is sheltered from the full force of Atlantic gales and swells and has it’s own micro-climate, making it one of the warmest and sunniest parts of the county. There is a stunning beach, West Angle Bay, just a 15-minute walk away which has a shallow topography and crystal clear water. Make sure you pack your snorkel, it has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the rock pools within it are home to a sweet little starfish (Asterina phylactica).
Furthermore, important ecological study area East Angle Bay, which is closest to the village, is made up of estuarial mud and is arguably equally as picturesque.
Traditionally cockle and mussel beds flourished here. It is not surprising much of the Angle peninsula has been designated as a conservation area by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
