About Phillippa Townend

We have been visiting Stackpole for the last 20 years & have enjoyed many happy family holidays there, playing on the beach, walking through the woods & just generally enjoying the pleasures of rural life.

Why Phillippa Townend chose Stackpole

We really love this cottage & the surrounding area & have been visiting for the last 17 years (my husband is originally from that area). The village of stackpole is made all the more lovely by the Stackpole Inn (a traditional country pub which also serves stunning food & is Condé Nast recommended) & the surrounding Pembrokeshire countryside is beautiful.

There are beautiful walks from the front door which take you across fields & woodland (well maintained tracks) directly to Barafundle Bay (approx 25 mins) & Bosherston Lily Ponds (approx 20 mins) and give easy access to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

What makes this cottage unique

The joy of this cottage is in it's idyllic location - if you're looking for a rural property with easy access to fields, woodland & coastal scenery, you'll be delighted! We are also dog-friendly & the property is maintained in very good order.

The most perfect place - made us smile!

  • 5 of 5

We are so very glad we chose this beautiful cottage to stay in!

The perfect peaceful location looking out over hedgerows brimming with birds an on to Woodland and fields.

The cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped. Beautiful art and finishing touches everywhere. Loved the big dresser in the dining room.

Peter next door acts as caretaker and he is DELIGHTFUL! So so helpful! Gave us some wonderful walking directions and letting us know we had to duck under the first electric fence and could then unhook the rest! An easy walk down to stunning Barafundle Bay. We also easily joined the 6 mile Bosherston Wildlife Circuit! Be sure to look for the Slow Pig Wagon.

Stackpole is s pretty little village and we ate at the fab pub three times!

We did heaps of stunning walks, never straying that far by car. Longest trip was an amazing boat over to Skomer! Puffins galore!

Also did Carew Castle, Manorbier (beautiful tea room too!), Tenby, Saundersfoot - and beautiful walks at Angle and at Lawrenny - both of which have sister cafes which are AMAZING!!!!

The perfect sunny week!!! Thank you Phillips!!

Superb ! Excellent family place .

  • 5 of 5

We were here for a week and had a great time. The cottage is absolutely delightful and offers much more than what is described. There is not a thing we did not like.

Location - Perfect to get away from busy city life and enjoy the countryside with family .

Could not recommend highly enough. Beaches and walks around are brilliant. Had a great time exploring with our 4year old. Will definately plan another trip.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week. Stackpole area is glorious, the woods were full of spring flowers, there was lots of wildlife​ to see, garden and grounds on Stackpole Estate lovely and beaches are absolutely fantastic.We didn't use car at all during our stay as there was plenty of walking, as well as relaxing on the beach without it.
