National Trust Stackpole

Book Tickets Online


DIscover Stackpole’s beautiful stretch of coastline for yourself. With award-winning sandy beaches, tranquil wooded valleys, wildlife-rich lily ponds, walking trails and water sports, there’s lots to see and do.

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. Exotic plantings in Lodge Park give way to mixed woodland further upstream.

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.

The Boathouse Cafe

The Boathouse is just a few steps from the tiny harbour of Stackpole Quay and 15 minutes walk from the magical beach of Barafundle.

Stackpole Nature Reserve

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

Accomodation at the Stackpole Outdoor learning Centre and at the cottages at Stackpole Quay
