Scenic backdrop to Newgale beach, with charming valleys and a history of wealth

For many, one of the iconic views of Pembrokeshire is the open expanse of St Bride’s Bay greeting you as you approach Newgale.

In 2003, we were left the Southwood Estate as a generous legacy by Mrs Maurer. She loved this part of the world and hoped that we would look after its special qualities for the benefit of the nation.

Southwood Farm, with its magnificent range of Victorian buildings, stands proudly in the landscape. We’re using this place as our home farm for north Pembrokeshire. The extensive network of traditional field boundaries provides a timeless feel to the landscape as well as a home for wildlife.
