This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

These attractive and cosy Byres are in a wonderful location on the Stackpole Estate.

This cosy cottage for two is in a complex of sympathetically converted farm buildings just metres from the sea, cliff path and quay. It has lots of character, retaining its stone walls and wooden beams. If feeling energetic you have great water sports on your doorstep, including canoeing and coasteering!

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
kitchen, dining/sitting room with multi-fuel stove, one double bedroom (with 6' bed which can also be a twin on request) and bathroom with shower over bath.
Visitor notes

There is a shared grass area situated to the side and rear of the Byre Cottages. This area leads down to a shingle beach. If you follow the coastal paths, this will lead to unfenced cliff tops.

The bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor but the cottage may not be suitable for wheelchair users. We no longer provide a cot and high chair at this cottage. Gas central heating included.

South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David’s Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.

South West Wales has spectacular coastline, unspoilt countryside, thrilling activities and fascinating places to visit, making it one of the UK's most appealing holiday destinations. Pembrokeshire, on the South West tip of Wales, is a spectacular coastal region, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park takes in the entire coastal strip - the only national park in the UK to be wholly coastal in nature and for good reason. The coastline is stunning! Neighbouring Carmarthenshire is known as the 'garden of Wales' and home to the National Botanic Garden. Visitors can explore the rich heritage and culture, myths and legends, with spectacularly sited castles and picturesque market towns and the area is a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers, with the Red Kite a common sight soaring over the countryside. Cardiganshire in the north boasts dramatic clifftop scenery overlooking Cardigan Bay and a haven for wildlife and pretty traditional Welsh seaside towns such as Aberaeron, the home of the famous Welsh cob and where one house in every four is a listed building. National Trust places to visit include the beautiful Bosherston Lily Ponds, Barafundle Bay, Colby Woodland Garden and the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby. Other attractions include the smallest Cathedral City in the UK, St Davids, many pretty seaside resorts, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail extending 186 miles from north to south and Oakwood theme park.

    Delightful cottage

    The place is stunning. The proximity of sea, beach and coastal path is amazing. We went on a lovely walk recommended in the information folder. The cottage is delightful and having other tenants around didn't matter - they were all very considerate!

    The standard of accommodation in the cottage was brilliant but the most amazing thing, it was only 78 steps to the beach, which was generally deserted. Paradise !

    Lovely break

    The cottage and location was wonderful. I was also very taken with the extras left for us over Christmas such as the fresh flowers and biscuits. A lovely touch I thought. The booking process was easy and friendly. A lovely stay and I would go again. Thank you for a lovely break.

    Fabulous location

    The property is in a fabulous location and that outweighed all other considerations this time.

    I am so impressed with the work that the NT do around the Stackpole Estate. The fact that there is such a place for all, including non-members to visit is of such value. We have stayed with Landmark Trust regularly for over 30 years and after a poor experience last year, we were looking for an alternative. NT proved to be far superior in many respects and the problem we had (with the dishwasher) was sorted out immediately. We could not have been more satisfied.

    Special place

    Made special by its...Wonderful location and very relaxing. Having the access to the coastal path was magic! The cove opposite to the cottage felt like our own private beach, where we could re-live our childhood memories of rock pooling and skimming stones. What a special place... a revisit is already on the card but this time with some kayaking :) The one NT Stackpole leaflet that was in the folder (with the map on the back) was very useful. Could you pop more than one in the cottage? Only we wanted to take it away with us and on our walk, but felt bad if we didnt return it or if it got damaged. What a great resource :)
