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.

Once upon a time, calves were kept in this pretty whitewashed building that stands to the rear of Stackpole and Farm Cottages. Converted to a home some time ago, it is a cosy hideaway for two.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
small hallway, sitting/dining room with open fire and galley kitchen, one bedroom (1 double) and bathroom with shower over bath.
Visitor notes

Gas central heating included. 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. The cot in this cottage is a travel cot.

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.

    Well equipped cottage

    Our stay was made enjoyable by its beautiful location and a small, well equipped cottage. Peaceful and with wonderful walking straight from the door.

    Know standards will be high

    Having stayed at many NT properties we value the knowledge that standards will be high (e.g. beds are always of a good quality - not the case in many other providers!) and of a similar nature in all properties. We love the unique and often exclusive locations that all the properties we have stayed in offer. Wi-fi although not essential, is very useful especially where there is no or little phone signal (as is the case in most of the properties because of their amazing locations). In our recent holiday, there was no signal in the cottage or in the local area and although there was a pay phone available, it would have been very useful to have wi-fi to be able to contact our children for example using skype or What's App.

    Welcoming and cosy cottage

    Love the location and the cottage. The cottage is very welcoming and cosy - perfect for two. Stackpole is a gorgeous area and seeing the lilies at Bosherton and, on one occasion, 14 choughs doing an aerial display was lovely.
