Leading Light Leading Light is a unique, Grade II listed property, set in one of the world's most spectacular coastal areas. Classed as having historic significance, this Victorian building was originally built circa 1870 and used as 2 lighthouse keepers' cottages. Whilst the property is indeed now one residence, it is easy to see how it was originally separated into 2 cottages. The existing owners have enjoyed this family home for over 3 decades and they have retained many of the original features, which include flagstone flooring, fireplaces, stripped pine doors and fitted dressers/cupboards. For the right person, Leading Light is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a magnificent, historic & spacious detached property in a beautiful setting.

Location Located within the world famous Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Leading Light is set atop a rocky peninsula, with magnificent sea views. The beauty of Britain's only coastal national park hasn't gone unnoticed. National Geographic Traveller magazine in the us recently rated the Pembrokeshire coast one of the top two coastal destinations in the world. The Pembrokeshire coastline is an intricate ribbon of weather-worn cliffs, dazzling beaches and secret coves, jewelled with rock pools. Here, where land, sea and sky combine, walkers, surfers, kayakers and sailors are in their element. Leading Light offers the privacy of being fairly remote but is by no means isolated. Nearby Lindsway Bay is a wide, sandy beach less than a mile south of the village of St Ishmaels on the northern shore of the Milford Haven waterway, accessible from the coastal path leading away from Leading Light. The Bay is sandwiched between Watch House Point to the west and Great Castle Head to the east with Longberry Point and Rooks' Nest Point delineating the limits of the sandy beach. On Watch House Point are the remains of coastal artillery positions built at the start of the First World War in 1914, while on Great Castle Head is the site of an older fortification dating from the Iron Age.
