Marloes, Pembrokeshire

Local Gem

Well worth the walk down from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, the remote expanses of Marloes Sands can be completely submerged during high tide (you have been warned). Located in a farmyard adjoining the car park, Runwayskiln's little café serves breakfast baps before 11am and a short but varied lunch menu ranging from smoked haddock gratin or crispy slow-roasted Myrddin Heritage pork shoulder with smoky black-bean chilli, pickles, chipotle mayo and soft corn tacos to ‘light and almost ethereal’ beer-battered fish with chips and mushy peas. In summer, picnic benches make the most of the coastal view, while the courtyard has a kiosk serving ice cream and toasties. Self-contained, hostel-style bedrooms too.
