Silk Purse Holiday Home in Angle
Silk Purse is a beautifully converted stone barn brimming with character with exposed stone walls and A-frame beams set in the heart of the waterside village of Angle in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
One of five cottages, and forming part of an original farmyard set back from the main street, it has been finished to a high standard throughout with interesting artwork and tasteful furnishings and décor. The spacious, modern fitted kitchen/diner is well-equipped, steps lead up and into the separate sitting room, a cosy retreat on chillier evenings. While the 2 well-appointed bedrooms both with ensuites complete this charming cottage. A door leads out to a small secluded patio, a veritable sun trap where you can relax. 2 steps take you up to a gated meadow garden which overlooks a green mosaic of pasture land and uninterrupted rural views.
A short stroll takes you to the village pub nearby, as well as West Angle Bay a superb sandy beach, popular with holidaymakers with its beachside café, Wave Crest, where you can enjoy an excellent Sunday lunch. Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to explore this stunning coastline, a stop at the The Old Point House for a pint overlooking the water should not be missed, all within an easy walk.
There are a range of stunning beaches within easy reach including Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf, long, golden beach, and its high, sheltered sand dunes - the perfect film set for blockbusters "Robin Hood" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 2009. It is popular with surfers and dog walkers; enjoy refreshments at the beachside hut - Café Mor. Take a drive to Bosherston, walk round the Lilly Ponds onto Broadhaven South beach, while away in the village, stop at the Ye Olde Worlde Cafe for traditional afternoon tea or St Govan’s Inn for something stronger. The area is renowned for the variety of its bird colonies - guillemots, razorbills, cormorants, coughs, gannets, puffins and many more. Take in the Green Bridge of Wales and the medieval St Govan’s Chapel, built in to the cliffs as you explore the Coastal Path round.
Silk Purse is a perfect retreat whatever the season for couples and families alike.

A wild, wet and windy week, which left the beaches deserted just for us! Lots of walking, then home to a hot bath and warm, welcoming cottage. We made full use of the takeaway food at the Angle shop – their Sunday lunch was excellent. Thank you for all the extra touches, they are appreciated by all. Looking forward to returning
