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.
Starting from Newgale beach, one of the longest in Wales, why not walk the coast path to Maidenhall Point and return inland through wildlife-rich farmland and the charming wooded valley below Southwood Farm? Here's the route with things to look out for
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|

In line with Welsh Government legislation and 'fire break' lockdown, all our places in Wales will temporarily close from 24 October to 9 November to restrict the spread of coronavirus. We urge people to follow legislation, stay home and not travel.
