Dale has an artsy vibe.
Postcards are painted here, there's sculptors, potters, sketchers and watersport addicts all with perfect tans & sun-bleached manes.
It's the kind of village-y vibe you only truly get when you're fringed by a calm bay of water & one pub to quench the entire village.
Unsurprisingly Dale is pretty friendly too.
We stopped off the other morning - where we wiggled our toes in the water, drank big mugs of fluffy coffee & then found ourselves in a village hall come art exhibition surrounded by local pottery & kooky driftwood sculptures.
