Kayaking along the Pembrokeshire coast

What better way to explore our stunning coastline than launch from the sheltered Stackpole Quay. Investigate the amazing geological features carved out of the limestone cliffs, and watch from a safe distance the colonies of sea birds that frequent the sheer cliffs.

We all love having a little bit of this beautiful world all to ourselves for a couple of days. Why not join one of our organised wild camps. Our rangers and education officers are experienced in bush craft, camping and foraging. Camp out under the stars in our secluded deer park wood. Great fun for all the family.
