Gupton Farm

Gupton Farm is our new visitor base at Freshwater West, with camping, surf lodge accommodation and community facilities on-site. This traditional Pembrokeshire farm has been reinvented and is now the gateway to the beach, the place to learn more of the area’s story and see how agriculture can deliver for nature.

Visitor and community facilities

We’ve been working hard to restore a series of traditional buildings at the farmstead, injecting a new lease of life into this special place for you to enjoy.

For visitors and the local community, we’ve created an interpretation hub that shares an insight into Gupton Farm and Freshwater West’s past, present and future. We've also created an outdoor activity base which is now run by Outer Reef Surf School - come along and book a watersports session.

Farming for nature

Gupton Farm was left to the Trust in 1976 and until 2013 was a tenanted farm. When the site came back in hand, we chose to introduce a more sustainable approach to farming with a conservation focus.

This approach has included restoring and extending historic habitats and working with nature to adapt to coastal change. Read more about Gupton’s nature-friendly farm and meet Chris James, the local tenant farmer who’s helping us deliver for flora and fauna.

A place to stay

Gupton Farm opened in spring 2017 and offers a campsite and surf lodge accommodation for those wanting to stay at Freshwater West a little longer. It’s a great opportunity to see this special place in a whole new light and re-energise in a simple, rustic setting.
