surf and paddle boarding at Stackpole & Barafundle Bay

If the Stackpole Estate was formed by man, the beaches and coastline surrounding it has most definitely been shaped by nature. Wild, rugged and windswept, Stackpole’s coast is the jewel of Pembrokeshire.

 

Perennial perfection

Special places such as Barafundle Bay, Broadhaven South and Freshwater West have become famous for their picture-postcard beauty and their unbeatable locations.

Whatever the weather’s doing our coastline and beaches are great to visit. It’s enormously atmospheric when surging waves crash against the cliffs or when the sea mist rolls in, engulfing the coastline. Not even the rain can dampen the spirits at Stackpole!

Outside of peak holiday times, you’ll often have these wonderful places all to yourself. Standing on the solitary promontory of Stackpole Head it’s easy to imagine you’re the only person in the world. This is the stuff of which romantic novels are made.

Stackpole’s beaches

Barafundle Bay has its fair share of romantic charm with its secluded location. Only accessible on foot, it has the air of an undiscovered gem.

Nearby Broadhaven South is a great family-friendly beach, close to its adjacent car park whilst Freshwater West has become synonymous with a surfers paradise. Its dramatic and rugged landscape makes it one of the best beaches to visit all year round. It’s a little further from Stackpole but well worth jumping in the car to get to.
