Where to go and what to do while staying at Anchor Cottage
Let's start at home - 8 great things to do in Angle!
05 Visit the Lifeboat
The busy Lifeboat is a big part of Village life, as the boat is crewed by village residents who are mainly volunteers. The Lifeboat Station annual open day is well worth a visit!
06 Walk around the Point
The coastal path links East and West Angle, which means that you can enjoy a scenic circular walk from the cottage with views across the estuary to Dale and St. Anns Head and of the old island forts - about an hour and half.
07 Visit Chapel Bay Fort
A Military Fortress with a Café and Museum. Website for opening times : Chapel Bay Fort & Museum
08 Go Crabbing
A perennial favourite with the children - just need a crab line (or a piece of string) a little bacon or sausage for bait, a fishing net and a bucket!
Tip - try the jetty near the Old Point House or the Old Bridge ruins - both East Angle Bay
01 Row a boat
The gently shelving beach is perfect for swimming or messing about on a boat* Or if you prefer something larger, you can launch your boat from East Angle Bay. Perfect for paddleboarding too!
02 West Angle Beach
Angle beach has the perfect combination of a gently sloping sandy beach for paddling and swimming, edged with rockpools, with sheltered areas for sunbathing too!
03 Wavecrest Cafe
Overlooking the beach, the Wavecrest sells ice creams, snacks, drinks and beach toys, as well as a lovely menu - enjoy coffee, lunch with a glass of wine or an afternoon tea!
04 East Angle Bay
East Angle Bay is brilliant for bird watching, admiring the beautiful boats while sipping a drink at The Old Point House, or exploring the pebbled shore to find shells
In the village:
The Hibernia Inn - less than 100 yards from Anchor Cottage, you will be met by a roaring fire in the bar and a warm welcome from landlady Hayley! There is a good sized dining room with further tables upstairs, but can be very busy in season - always best to book! Serves good pub food, takeaways, fish and chips and Sunday lunches are highly recommended.
The Old Point House Inn - East Angle Bay has superb views across the bay and a large garden for the children to play in with plenty of seating for outdoor eating. There is a small indoor restaurant serving mainly seafood based dishes, so if you wish to sit indoors booking is essential. The Old Point House is also the home of Cafe Mor, a burger bar in a boat situated in the garden, perfect for family summer afternoons and evenings!
Just 2 miles away by road you will find the fabulous Freshwater West for surfing, bodyboarding, exploring the sand dunes,Kite flying, walking the endless beach or finding Dobby's Grave! We highly recommend Outer Reef for surf lessons here.
