About Stackpole Under The Stars

Our family-run campsite is like a little green oasis, tucked away behind woodland in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and yet only 10 minutes’ drive from the historic town of Pembroke. It’s the best of both worlds. If you’re seeking a place to unwind, in a quiet rural location but within easy reach of what others may call ‘civilisation’,
we think you’ll love it.

About our family-run campsite

We run a small, relaxed, family-friendly campsite with just ten grass pitches, set in the field alongside our home. Five of the pitches are set aside for our own glamping accommodation and five are reserved for camping. Because of our size and the popularity of our location, we recommend booking for all pitches. If you want to bring your camper or caravan early on in the season it’s best to call us first to check ground conditions are suitable.

A very special place

When you stay with us, you’ll enter the campsite grounds through a pair of rather splendid Grade II listed stone gate pillars. That’s because our home, North Lodge, was once the northern gate house to the Stackpole Estate. In the 1800s, carriages heading to the manor house, Stackpole Court, travelled along the tree-lined approach to what is now
Stackpole Under The Stars.

Although the manor house itself was demolished in 1963, the estate – including the beautiful Bosherston Lily Ponds – is now owned and managed by the National Trust. We have lived and worked in the Stackpole area for 20 years and bought North Lodge in late 2016. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to run the only camping and glamping site within the grounds of this historic estate.

It’s an idyllic spot in a very special place and we look forward to sharing it with you.
