Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Property Set on a rocky peninsula within the boundary of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, you will be delighted to find this quite spectacular Grade II listed property known as 'Leading Light'. The property was built circa 1870 and is made up of two 3 bedroom former lighthouse keepers' cottages. The adjoining plant room houses the lighthouse beacon, which is now automated and is owned by Milford Haven Port Authority.
The 'west' and 'east' sections of the accommodation are connected by an inner hall, but could equally be used as one 6 bedroom larger dwelling. Many of the original features have been retained, such as flagstone flooring, fireplaces, fitted dressers and cupboards, as well as stripped pine internal doors. The current owners have added double/secondary glazing to some rooms, as well as central heating, providing the comfort to which many modern families have become accustomed.
The cliff top location offers spectacular panoramic sea views stretching from Gelliswick Bay right out to St Ann's Head and beyond. The coastal footpath runs alongside the grounds of the lighthouse, which extend to 9 acres (or thereabouts). On the north east side of the peninsular there is access to a half tide jetty, for those who enjoy boating. This is a very substantial Victorian structure (in need of some renovation).
 

Location This truly is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase a unique property. Leading Light is positioned on sandstone cliffs on the north side of Milford Haven waterway, south facing and offering spectacular panoramic views. Located midway between the town of Milford Haven and Dale, the closest village is St Ishmaels which has a public house. The Lighthouse is within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and has direct access to coastal footpath walks. To reach the sandy beach of Lindsway, takes about 15 mins walk along the coastal footpath and down steps cut into the cliff. Leading Light offers the privacy of being fairly remote but is by no means isolated.
