Cottage in Dale, Nr. Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire - The Living Room Looks Across The Bay, And You Can Fall Asleep To The Sounds Of The Sea
About Caroline Keeble
Morgan's Cottage has been in the same family since before the war, and we are now in the fifth generation of family coming to Dale. Three of the houses along ‘the Brig’ date from the eighteenth century, when Dale was considerably bigger than it is now, with a busy port. Before our grandfather bought the cottage from the Dale Castle Estate in 1939, it was a Post Office and shop run by Polly Morgan. It is named after her.
Caroline Keeble purchased this Cottage in 1949
Why Caroline Keeble chose Pembrokeshire
My mother and her brother and sisters were evacuated to Dale during the WWII where they had spent previous family holidays. When the cottage became available, because of its wonderful position, our grandfather bought it, and rebuilt it after the war to be the family holiday home.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is right on the sea and overlooks the bay which is perfect for sailing, swimming, canoeing and fishing; the coastal path runs right past it; it's in the heart of the tiny village, a pebble's throw from the Griffin Inn which is the social centre; and it's a short walk to West Dale where there is a sandy beach and good surfing. Milford Haven and Haverfordwest (for shopping) are both about a 20 minute drive away.

Perfect relaxing break
We spent a weekend here celebrating a birthday, the house was perfect for the 6 of us. The photos really do not give the property credit, it’s much better in real life! Sea view from every bedroom. Very spacious and well equipped. It really is s beautiful place to stay and by far the best house in the village. Lovely walks right on your doorstep and the pub does really good food. I would highly recommend this property.
Perfect place for our family reunion
Only 6 of us stayed in this cottage which sleeps 8 but Morgan’s Cottage was the perfect place for our family reunion because of the layout, position and equipment. We were fortunate to have perfect weather as well. The only small issue was a slight smell of damp in the downstairs twin room but there was a dehumidifier to address this and for a cottage of this age it was understandable. Especially loved the first floor living room with the fantastic outlook through 3 windows. Lovely big open plan kitchen/dining room. We would certainly come back if circumstances allow.
2nd time I’ve stayed here this .year, I can’t fault it. Would recommend to anyone who loves walking.
Perfect cottage for us and two other couples to stay in for a wedding close by. Very comfortable and well equipped. The Griffin was visited for a delicious fish supper. Would definitely recommend the cottage.
So pleased you had a good time.
We had a great stay at Morgan’s Cottage. The location is perfect and the house comfortable, with everything we needed.
A wonderful place to stay to get away from it all, with fantastic views across the bay from the sofa, easy access to walks along the Pembrokeshire coast path, and a good pub across the road.
Although it didn’t bother us and didn’t spoil our stay, the WiFi was very intermittent with long periods where there was no wifi available, presumably because of the remote location of the village.
I would highly recommend Morgan’s Cottage.
Thank you for your kind comments. Regarding the wifi, we had hoped it had got better and will look into it once again.
