Explore the wonderful National Trust owned Stackpole Estate on this circular walk in the Pembrokeshire National Park. In the estate you'll find miles of coastal footpaths, woodland trails and waterside sections along the beautiful, large lake.
Stackpole is located near Freshwater East on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. There's 12 square kilometres to explore on a variety of good footpaths. This walk starts at the Stackpole Quay car park and takes you along the coast path to Stackpole Head with wonderful views of Barafundle Bay. You'll also pass the striking natural stone arches known as the Lattice Windows.
The route then heads towards Bosherton passing the delightful Stackpole Warrens. This area of grassland is great for wildlife watching with butterflies and birds visiting the wildflower meadows in the summer months. At the little village of Bosherton you can enjoy refreshments at the pub and visit the fascinating Norman church of the late 13th century.
From Bosherton you continue along the lovely Stackpole Lily Ponds. Look out for waterlilies in the summer and wildlife which includes the resident otters. The final section takes you along the deer park track, returning to the car park.
If you'd like to continue your walking in this area then you could head along the coast to the fascinating, 13th century St Govan's Chapel.
