- English, German
About Christine Fletcher
I was introduced to holidays in Pembrokeshire over 40 years ago and still get the most wonderful delight in all that it has to offer. Our house in Dale is an excellent base from which to explore and walk on the coastal path to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Christine Fletcher purchased this House in 2000
Why Christine Fletcher chose Pembrokeshire
We have always spent a lot of time in Pembrokeshire, particularly around Dale and Marloes. We love the remoteness and beauty of the beaches, and the scenery as you walk along the coastal path. Photography and art work are wonderful pastimes in this area, along with sailing,surfing and windsurfing.
What makes this House unique
Gateholm is a very comfortable and conveniently placed property with the benefit of an en-suite, family bathroom and shower room. It is fully double glazed, well insulated, and has character and warmth. The rear garden and wooded bank attract a beautiful collection of birds. Skomer Island which is renowned for the birds is reached by a local boat, bookable in Dale. Windsurfing, Surfing and Sailing are all on hand, as is walking on the Pembrokeshire coastal path.

Great House and lovely location
Gateholm certainly lived up to, if not exceeded our expectations. The directions were spot on, thank you, and checking in was a breeze. The house was lovely, clean, spacious, extremely well equipped, tastefully decorated and situated centrally in the sweet village of Dale. We wanted to explore the coastal paths in the area and the house was ideally placed for that. Many walks could be accessed directly from Gateholm. Thank you also for the unexpected goodies we found on our arrival and for the wonderful advice of having a Tesco shop delivered to the door. That was most convenient. We had a gorgeous meal in The Griffin. The food isn’t cheap, but it is excellent and the staff were very friendly. All in all our holiday was a 5* experience from start to finish, especially as the sun shone in abundance. Thank you Christine for a lovely stay.
Thank you so much and I am very pleased that you had such an enjoyable stay. The walks on the coastal path are glorious and particularly with good weather. I hope we will see you again in the near future.
Best wishes and thank you,
Gateholm. Location, views, got it all
Stayed with my family of five and also my parents. Plenty of room. Great location 100 yards from the beach and pub. Well stocked with everything a family would need. Great hosts. Thanks Chris and Phil
Thank you very much for writing a review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the local area. Chris and Phil
Couldn't be better
Gateholm is a big, spacious, clean, quality home from home. The back garden faces south so has sun all day (it was sunny mostly, luckily). It is in Dale which is beautiful.
Christine, the owner, was very helpful indeed and all instructions and tips were excellent.
We had not visited this part of Pembrokeshire before but we will certainly be returning for more. If you like to relax this place is perfect.
Thank you - that was what holidays are all about.
Thank you and I am so happy you had such a good time in Dale. It is a beautiful part of Wales and many beaches to enjoy. You are always welcome to return. Chris
Best equipped property we've stayed in. Excellent location - we timed it from the property to the sea front at 1 min 30. Lovely sunny back garden where we spent many hours chilling. Wet suits, a canoe, table tennis table, bbq, all were provided. Ideal for families, but we were a greedy couple and kept it to ourselves!
Thank you so much and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It is really appreciated that you have taken the time to write a review and thank you. We love Dale and particularly this time of year with the bluebells colouring the landscape of Skomer and also the coastal path to Musselwick.
We hope you will come and stay again. Thank you, Chris and Phil
