Located in Marloes, The Lobster Pot features a restaurant, a bar and a garden. The inn has family rooms. All guest rooms in the inn are equipped with an electric tea pot. The staff are super friendly and cannot do enough to help. Very welcoming and friendly. Great location to explore the headland, the ocean and of course skomer !

More than a stopping point on the Pembroke coastal path. With more time I'd have done the boat trip to Skomer Island. Walking round the Deer park (National Trust parking) at the end of the peninsula you could see seals and pups in the coves below. Great views of the coast from the becon on left by the road to the Luckley Centre for the boat trips. By 14th September they were on their winter arrangements and the actual centre was closed - boats were running so check details between Sept- April.
Marloes is a very convenient place to stay if you want to visit Skomer Island - only a 5 minute drive to Martins Haven. The Lobster Pot pub serves pleasant food and if you want something more up market, then the Griffin in Dale is only a 10 minute drive away and the seafood there is excellent (best to book as all tables seemed to have been reserved). Skomer island did not disappoint, the puffins were there in force and were very cute plus loads of other sea birds. The £3 guide produced by the WWT was an excellent source of info for the novice bird watcher.
The Puffin Shuttle was still on the Winter timetable so only running 2 days a week until 25th May 2019. When I booked this trip in late December the bus website stated that the summer timetable would come into effect from the first Sunday in May. This made it more difficult for walking different sections of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path but fortunately I had my own transport so could manage some circular walks.
Probably my favourite part of the coast. Away from the big crowds. Scenery, cliffs, islands and beaches still jaw droppingly beautiful, even on a stormy day. No real steep climbs along this portion of the coastal path. Parking (in summer) is/has become expensive (£5 in 2018). Car park is large but busy in summer too. Free (in 2018) public toilets are available, a short walk from the car park Marloes is a beautiful beach but it is a fair walk down (approx 1.5km) and not flat (on the way back). Path is suitable for buggies but try and be efficient and prepared with what you take. No toilets here.
Marloes is great for walking the Pembrokeshire coast. Marlow sands is a lovely beach but Rocky in places. Boat to take over to Skomer Island near by. Plenty of wildlife including seals. Didn't eat in the only pub so can't comment. Small village shop which is well stocked .
The staff are super friendly and cannot do enough to help. Very welcoming and friendly. Great location to explore the headland, the ocean and of course skomer !
