White Horses was originally a fisherman’s cottage. The old part is a single storey stone building with central chimney stack of traditional Welsh pattern.

This cottage was built directly onto the quayside a few meters above the sandy shore. At high tides the sea regularly used to flood the terrace and all ground floor areas.

Flood defences were installed to ensure that the increasingly regular winter flooding would not happen again.

These essential flood defences installed have enabled this historic and charming cottage to be enjoyed all year round for the first time and have also protected the Lookout Tower or Camera Obscura Tower and the quayside promenade from the hotel.
