Dale offers two beaches; Turn left out of the house to West Dale Beach.15 minutes walk from the house or 5 minutes if you take the car. Check tides on tide timetable provided in the information pack. Dog-friendly (don’t forget to pack water for the dog).There are no amenities here so we always pack a loo roll, useful for all sorts of things! The cross currents are strong so we recommend that you do not go out of your depth if bathing as there is no lifeguard at this beach. Walk out the house, turn left and follow the one way until you get to the castle. Continue straight on and up the gravel track past the castle (instead of following the road around). Don't follow the track left either but go over the fence straight across the field heading for the horizon. There are cows in the field. Then you'll find yourself looking down on the beach! It’s about a mile. Or you can take the car (useful if you are taking a lot of things down to the beach). Again, go around the one-way system and just before the church you will see a left hand turning, go up the lane and at the top you will see roadside parking. There is a footpath down to the beach. The walk down the cliff is steep but there are steps and it's well worth the effort. This beach is a great place. It is a large sandy beach with pebbles, rock pools, and surf. Take beach games, a bucket & spades is a must, fishing net for the rock pools, body boards, surf boards or just a book. I recommend that you take food and drink with you as we always stay longer than we plan. Matches and paper are a good idea as there is always lots of drift wood to build a fire. Great surfing while being quite a small bay, it can pick up some massive swells because of its South West facing aspect. The area has an abundance of wildlife including birds, seals, dolphins and porpoise. The cliffs and coastal path also provide stunning views and the chance to see a wide variety of beautiful wildflowers. Or turn right out of the house1 minute walk to Dale front. Is a lovely shingle beach with sand at the far end of the beach. A busy pontoon with boats coming and going and children crabbing, wind surfers, kayaking and sailing There is a Lifeguard and safety boat on duty during the summer. It has been awarded European Blue Flag Status. Please respect this is a no smoking house. Have a magical holiday; please contact me with any queries 07962171131
