Surf’s up at National Trust Gupton Farm! We're delighted to be teaming up with Pembroke's Outer Reef Surf School at our exciting outdoor activity base.

The activity base, which is located within walking distance of Freshwater West beach in Pembrokeshire, will offer outdoor activities such as surfing and stand up paddle boarding.

Work is now underway at Gupton Farm, which also includes a campsite and farmhouse accommodation, to transform the former milking parlour into the activity area, with the base due to open this summer.

The new addition to the farmstead will focus on engaging visitors and the local community with the great outdoors and the area’s stunning stretch of coastline.

Speaking about the partnership, our Gupton Farm campsite manager Bethan Jones, said: “We’re really excited to be working with Outer Reef Surf School at National Trust Gupton Farm and championing outdoor visitor experiences at this special place.

“Visitors can stay in an amazing location, have a go at surfing at one of Wales’ best beaches, as well as being able to follow our walking trails and enjoy wildlife watching at the on-site bird hide.”

Outer Reef Surf School’s Dean Gough, added: “We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the National Trust at Gupton Farm and call Freshwater West our office.

“The activity base will provide a great space for us to run watersports sessions, engage with visitors to the area and support our local community.”

The project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government, and Cotswold Outdoor.
