About Kestrel Bunkhouse

A roomy bunkhouse in the heart of Stackpole, with walks from the doorstep in every direction.

Kestrel Bunkhouse is one in a group of converted stone farm buildings, sleeping 38 people and offering plenty of space for groups to come together. 

On the ground floor, Kestrel has a commercial-style kitchen, a games room and a living room with dining area and a log fire. There are another 12 bedrooms upstairs: four singles, three 2-bunks and five rooms with a mix of bunks and singles. There are bathrooms on both floors. Outside, there’s a private courtyard with picnic tables.

Kestrel Bunkhouse, along with neighbouring Kingfisher Bunkhouse, a pair of group houses and a cluster of small cottages, is part of the Stackpole Centre. A comfortable central seating area has WiFi and is available to all guests. Guests also all have access to a grassy area with a firepit.  

Stackpole is possibly the most wildlife rich and well preserved coastlines in Wales. A shady, mile-long walk takes you to the beach. You’ll be on the edges of the grade I listed landscape of Bosherston Lily Ponds. Head to Stackpole Quay for guided kayaking sessions along the coast. From here you can hop onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path for walks across the headlands, woods and beach, Barafundle Bay. Or if surfing is your thing, drive 20 minutes to Freshwater West for reliable waves all year round.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level.

The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions (stated on the cottage's webpage). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
