Stackpole is one of Wales’s richest nature reserves. This walk takes in lakes, woods, beaches, dunes and cliffs.

The lakes were created 200 years ago as a backdrop to Stackpole Court, a great house demolished in 1963 which has since become a precious wildlife habitat. It is an exciting walk in all seasons, with wildfowl on the lakes in winter and breeding seabirds on Stackpole Head in summer. Barafundle regularly appears in lists of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Begin your walk in the tiny harbour of Stackpole Quay, and finish with a well deserved treat back at the Boathouse Tearoom.
