Stackpole Estate

About Stackpole Estate

Just 5 miles south of Pembroke, Stackpole is a unique combination of natural and man-made landscapes. The freshwater lakes were created over 150 years ago by the Cawdor family and the dramatic coastline and superb beaches are just as nature intended. Relax on fabulous sandy beaches at Broadhaven South and Barafundle.

At weekends and bank holidays why not join our kayaking and coasteering trips from Stackpole Quay for your best wet day out. All equipment provided. Call 01646 661425 for details.

Take a stroll around the freshwater Bosherston Lakes, part of a National Nature Reserve and home to otters, wildfowl and dragonflies. June is usually the best time to see carpets of water lilies. Coarse fishing during the season (16Jun to 15Mar) is available by permit. Walk the miles of footpaths which link the lakes, woods, cliffs and beaches or join the Pembrokeshire Coast Path which passes through.

Call into the Boathouse tea-room at Stackpole Quay for delicious home made cakes, lunches and Pembrokeshire cream teas – all prepared using locally sourced ingredients and don’t miss the Mencap Walled Garden which grows and sells plants, fruits and vegetables.

Car parks at Stackpole Quay, Bosherston, Broadhaven South and Lodge Park Wood. Access via narrow lanes with passing places.
