In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Please note that this property is set in a unique location close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Castlemartin has the highest concentration of seabirds on the Pembrokeshire mainland, including guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. Most important of all, it provides an ideal habitat for the nationally-rare chough. The coastal heath and unimproved grassland also supports birds such as wheatears, skylarks, meadow pipits and stonechats. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8 km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan's Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.

Beaches near The Byre

Freshwater West is a huge sandy beach backed by sand dunes and has a rocky reef at the southern end of the beach. It is a haven for surfers, who are drawn to the area by the big Atlantic rollers, so it seems only natural that the beach should be the setting for the Welsh National Surfing Championships. The water here is in pristine condition and home to many species of bird life, seals and fish. However please note, it can be dangerous to swimmers because of strong undertows and hazardous quicksands, so families with young children should be on their guard. In the main season there are lifeguards patrolling the beach.
There is a large car park above the beach with W/C. Look out for Cafe mor parked here too- an award winning food outlet with a menu focused around local seafood dishes. Cafe Mor is available from Easter until the end of the summer season.

Bosherston
Backed by sand dunes, which are an important habitat for wildlife, this beautiful beach is a vast area of soft pale sand. Offshore is a large and dramatically-shaped limestone stack, known to locals as Church Rock. The stream running down to the beach drains from Bosherston’s Lily Ponds, part of the Stackpole Estate. The lakes cover about 80 acres and support a rich variety of wildlife including otters, water-fowl, dragonflies and water lilies. Forming part of a National Nature Reserve managed jointly by the National Trust and the Countryside Council for Wales, these Lily Ponds are idyllic to explore and are also dog friendly. 
Grab an ice-cream and a cold drink from the car park’s van during the summer months, or take a walk or a short drive back to Bosherston village and try a fabulous afternoon tea at Ye Olde Worlde Café or a hot meal at The Bosherston Inn.

Stackpole
No doubt one of Pembrokeshire’s most breath-taking beaches, Barafundle consists of picturesque beauty, golden sands, and sparkling blue waters and is backed by dunes and trees. It’s easy to make comparisons to that of a Mediterranean location. 
East facing and well sheltered from any winds, this is an ideal hideaway spot. The steep steps that descent from the cliff path down to the beach need to be respected, however the prize at the end is completely worth the stroll. There are toilets and a cafe at the car park half a mile away at Stackpole Quay, which can be accessed along the headland coastal path.

St Ishmaels
A large expanse of subtly coloured sand is revealed at this estuary when the tide retreats. Suitable for bathing, although swift currents do arise at some stages of the tide.

From here take the footpath along the west side of the field to the coast path, follow the coast path for approx 200 yards eastwards. Access to the beach is then down a steep zig-zag path with stone and concrete steps. At the bottom it is a short walk over the sandstone boulders to reach the sand. Once you get to the sand, you'll know it was worth the little stroll!
Freshwater East
Freshwater East is a wide bay of golden sand and blue water backed by dunes and grassy headlands, there is a freshwater stream running through the beach to the sea at the Southern end. Popular with boat owners, divers, fishermen and surfers alike, it has a shop, pub, caravan park and toilets - all set behind the dunes. .
Watwick Bay is a beautiful, secluded beach accessible only from the Coastal Path, approx. 1 mile South of Dale village, or half a mile walk from the roadside - care is needed as it is quite a steep walk down to the beach.
