If you’re 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.
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.
When you have tired of exploring and feel like relaxing whilst soaking up the views, then visit the Old Point House Inn which sits right on the seafront. Here you can enjoy real ales and delicious meals created from fresh locally caught fish.
