The village of Marloes lies on a spectacular stretch of the Pembrokeshire coast, seven miles west of Milford Haven. It forms the western tip of St Brides Bay and is located within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. A stroll from holiday cottages in Marloes, Marloes Sand is known as one of Wales’s most beautiful beaches. At low tide, its sandy shore stretches for more than a mile, and a maze of rockpools and caves is revealed. Backed by towering cliffs, the beach features many unusual rock formations. Look out for the remains of the paddle steamer, Albion, which ran aground in 1837 while it was transporting a cargo of pigs and whisky. Marloes Sands is the perfect place to sunbathe and swim at low tide, but the entire beach disappears as the tide rises. The clifftops on the doorstep of your holiday cottage in Marloes are a haven for rare birds including puffins and peregrine falcons. As you explore the coast, look out for passing seals and porpoises. In the village centre, there is a small grocery, a church, and a pub, the Lobster Pot Inn, where you can expect good food and a variety of local ales.
Set in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is Gwelfor, a luxurious coastal cottage in Marloes. The sophisticated cottage enjoys access to the highlights of South Wales and Pembrokeshire and offers contemporary open-plan design, light-filled spaces, lovely grounds, a sea breeze and a wood burner.
