Angle is a village located on a peninsula on the south shore of the Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. The village sits in a sheltered valley at the head of an inlet on Angle Bay. Angle lies within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and was designated as a conservation area in 1995.
As with much of Pembrokeshire, Angle is renowned for the beautiful coastline and the beach at West Angle is a magnet for families with its golden sands, sheltered position and interesting rock pools.
Angle has a long and proud seafaring tradition and its lifeboat station is evidence of this. East Angle Bay is very popular with boat owners and the tidal flats in the Bay are a draw for both birds and birdwatchers.
The village has two public houses, a school, a village shop, post office, a castle, and a parish church. The Old Point House Inn, part built with ship's timbers, has been popular with fishermen for centuries and, with the Hibernia Inn, has a new lease of life with tourists and modern day seafarers frequenting the village.
Several medieval buildings survive in the village and it has a fine medieval fortified residence in the Tower House. The stone built Tower House, constructed in the 14th century by a powerful local family, overlooks the sheltered anchorage of Angle Bay - more than likely as a defence against sea-borne raiders. The single-tower fortified residence is unusual for Wales, being more common in Ireland and the Scottish borderlands.
St Mary's Church stands in the main street, and is thought to have been built in the thirteenth century with the tower added in the fifteenth century. The church's grounds include a number of graves of Japanese seamen from the First World War.
The All Wales Path skirts the Angle peninsula and offers fine views of the glorious coastline that surrounds the village of Angle. However it is not necessary to complete the circumnavigation of Wales to appreciate the beauty of Angle as the village is well situated for some interesting circular local walks.
