Exploring the Area Surrounding Dale Fort, Pembrokeshire, Wales UK
Dale Fort has a spectacular location on a rocky peninsula in beautiful Pembrokeshire.
Our staff will be able to advise you of the best places to go in Pembrokeshire; these are just a selection of the places you could visit during your holiday, and many are free:
Newgale Beach A magnificent two mile long stretch of wide flat sand with a huge pebble bank behind it. The sand does disappear at high tide, but at low tide it's fabulous for sporty types - Newgale is one of Pembrokeshire's top three surfing locations and attracts surfers, kayakers, wind surfers and kite surfers. There are two cafes, one at each end of the beach
St David’s This is the smallest city in the UK! Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral, St David’s is in reality a small attractive village with two of the best ice-cream shops in Wales. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it is surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery and is renowned for its beauty and abundance of wildlife. Whitesands Beach and trips to Ramsey Island are close by.
Marloes Sands A huge expanse of sand at low tide with rocks and interesting cliff formations. Rockpools can be found at the western end of the beach. Scenes from the Hollywood film "Snow White and the Huntsman" - featuring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart - were shot here in September 2011.
Skomer Island Skomer is a haven for wildlife and is most well known for its puffins. It’s only a 15 minute drive from the Centre to the embarkation point for the island. Skomer, with its sister island Skokholm, is surrounded by some of the richest waters off the British Isles. The seas are full of fantastic wildlife, from delightfully coloured sea slugs to magnificent cetaceans.
Scolton Manor Museum and Country Park This Victorian manor house, museum and award winning visitor centre are set in 60 acres of Country Park and woodland, and include Period rooms, railway displays, farming exhibition, costume, stable/rural crafts, art exhibitions and World War II home front exhibition. Don’t miss the picnic and play areas, shop and tearoom.
The Blue Lagoon Waterpark Great fun for all family members whatever the weather. This indoor waterpark features crashing waves, a rapids river ride and two enclosed flume rides that venture outside the building and bring you hurtling back into the pool.

There are loungers, patios, observation decks and warm, balmy temperatures. The site also has a cafe and shop.
