About Stackpole Dip Cottage

This delightful stone cottage is nestled on a quiet private lane located on the Stackpole Estate close to multi award winning Barafundle Bay and Broadhaven South, two of the most beautiful beaches in Britain.

  • Set in a truly unique position adjacent to the Bosherston Lily Ponds and the former site of Stackpole Court Country House, this charming cottage provides a sanctuary in which to relax.
  • It has been beautifully enhanced by the new owners to include a whole host of fine Welsh treasures. The owners are antiques dealers who have lovingly gathered an eclectic mix of pieces to enhance the house and give it the warmest of feels.
  • All of the design elements are focused on Welsh heritage from the pictures on the walls, the old sailors chest and traditional Welsh farmhouse dresser with porcelain pieces.
  • There are lovely touches that make this an inspiring place to stay. The signs depict the original use for the house which was a stable building and sheep dip, the kitchen worktop was originally a snooker table, the welsh slate reworked to fabulous effect. There are an abundance of genuine Welsh blankets and throws that create a warm and cosy atmosphere.
  • The property has three bedrooms, the master has a hand-crafted padded headboard, the twin beautiful antique brass beds and the bunk beds mean the children have a fun and fabulous stay. These are served by a bathroom with shower and separate toilet.
  • French patio doors lead from the lounge/diner to the simple terrace with outside seating and the ultimate place to relax ,with the birds singing in the woodland beyond.
  • Leave the car at the cottage and set off on foot. Stackpole Dip Cottage has instant access out of the door to The National Nature Reserve. Explore miles of paths amongst the woodland and lakes, and walk the spectacular limestone cliffs for glimpses of coastal birds, butterflies and wild flowers.
  • The Estate is now owned by the National Trust and is recognised for its abundant wildlife with amazing lily ponds and lakes, with fabulous water fowl, swans and fishing.

Loved this comfortable attractive cottage! Very easy place to stay. So quiet. Fantastic location to be able to stroll out of the door to the lily ponds and then down to the beach. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed on a holiday and I will be very likely to book again!
