Details

Stackpole is both a listed designed landscape and an internationally important nature reserve. Footpaths radiate from the site of Stackpole Court, a grand mansion demolished before the National Trust owned this area.

Stackpole has two fabulous beaches, Barafundle and Broadhaven South. Barafundle is regularly voted among the top beaches in the world. You reach it by a 10 minute walk from Stackpole Quay. Head through Bosherston to find Broadhaven South. Freshwater West, six miles west of the estate, is a great surf beach.

Walking in Stackpole, you can enjoy miles of lakeside, woodland and coastal trails. There are eight bracing miles of cliff-tops and magical beaches. Linger along the wooded lakeshores, keeping a lookout for water birds and our resident otters. Peer into the clear waters from the two causeways across the lily ponds.

The famous Bosherston Lakes were created 200 years ago to provide a backdrop to Stackpole Court. They have evolved into a wildlife habitat famous for its otters, water birds and dragonflies.

Cliffs, sand dunes and tiny coves alternate along eight miles of coastline. Barafundle is a jewel of a beach set between limestone cliffs and backed by dunes and woods. This secluded bay can only be reached by a cliff path walk from Stackpole Quay, with steep steps at either end. Stackpole Quay itself is a tiny harbour used by local fishermen and small pleasure boats.

Broadhaven South, at the foot of the Bosherston Lakes, is another safe family bathing beach while Freshwater West, a few miles west of the main estate, is Wales's premier surfing beach.

Tuck into foodie favourites at the Boathouse Tea-room whilst enjoying spectacular views of Stackpole Quay.
