Adventurers and nature lovers both feel at home at Freshwater West. It’s a wild stretch of sand, perfect for surfing. This is your chance to introduce your tiny adventurers to the joys of catching a wave!

But if you’d rather just chill out in the sun, you’re welcome to just stretch your towel and work on your tan while the kids build sandcastles...And for the Harry Potter fans, you may recognise Freshwater West as the real-life location of Dobby’s Shell Cottage.

Fancy staying in the area overnight? Enjoy a quiet night under the stars at the Gupton Farm campsite. Pembrokeshire will wow you even after dark! Rather sleep indoors? Gupton Farm also has farmhouse accommodation for those who like their comfort.
