Slate Mill Lodge
An introduction to Slate Mill Lodge
Slate Mill Lodge provides Self-Catering and Bed and Breakfast style accommodation in beautiful Pembrokeshire. A completely restored 14th Century corn-mill, the lodge is situated just minutes from Dale in superb peaceful surroundings, close to many local attractions, bars and restaurants. Guests have the option to let a complete apartment or a private en-suite bedroom. Slate Mill Lodge is open ALL YEAR, priced from £35pppn.
In the fourteenth century six brothers came from Sweden to Great Britain and settled in Wales. They were millers and apparently found what they were looking for in Pembrokeshire with its many streams and fertile land.
Bountiful crops of wheat, barley and oats were grown, which meant plenty of work for the mills. Each of the brothers built for himself a water mill for grinding grain, and one of these was our very own Slate Mill (From The Midas Touch, Codd, 1980).
Now after almost 2 years of restoration Slate Mill is a completely modernized, energy efficient building. The building has solar-powered assisted water-heating and rainwater is collected for use in the toilets and laundry.
Guests have the choice of self-catering or B&B style accommodation, in warm comfortable, en-suite rooms. The lodge itself is set in 20acres of our own land, so those seeking some fresh air can walk amongst the rolling hills and streams enjoying views of the Pembrokeshire National Park and local wildlife.

The Slate Mill Lodge is situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
This is Britain's only truly coastal National Park and boasts some of the most spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife in Britain. It's a spectacular landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills, and a place of sanctuary for wildlife.
The landscape has been shaped over the centuries by people, leaving their mark in tombs and castles, crosses and cottages, quarries and quays.
It was established as a National Park in 1952, and is the only one in the United Kingdom to have been designated primarily because of its spectacular coastline. Beaches
Pembrokeshire's coastline boasts some of the most magnificent scenery in Britain, if not Europe. Some of Pembrokeshire’s beaches are classed as being among the best beaches in Britain. With over 50 beaches breaking up the rugged, rocky landscape, there’s something for everyone - from bustling beaches in the seaside resorts to quiet sandy coves that can only be reached by foot.
