In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Bosherston is located close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The border of the range is approx 800m away. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8 km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan's Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.

Having spent a wonderful time at Sycamore Barn we feel like we have won the lottery! We have been coming to Pembrokeshire for over 25 years and we have finally hit the jackpot! What a fantastic cottage that Caroline and Simon have created, all their hard work deserves wall to wall bookings! Thank you so much for being such lovely and thoughtful hosts. We did a lot of walking when we were here, make sure you use the Top 10 Pembrokeshire South Wales book, it's excellent!
Thank you Caroline & Simon for providing all we could possibly need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday in your beautiful cottage. It's been an ideal location for exploring our favourite coastal walks and beaches. Wishing you every success with your holiday business in the future.
Lovely comfortable cottage, a real home from home. Caroline and Simon were super hosts.
Thank you so much for our relaxing break in your gorgeous cottage - it really has been a delight to stay here and all the extra touches were so thoughtful!
We've had a wonderful two weeks in Pembrokeshire and the weather has been glorious. You certainly have some of the finest scenery in Great Britain. The cottage deserves a special mention, as comfortable, relaxing and well equipped. Also a big thank you for all the little extras. We wish you every success and happiness in the future.
Sycamore Barn is delightful, cottage beautifully presented, we were made very welcome with homemade cake, flowers and eggs. We have enjoyed our stay here especially your lovely peaceful garden. Thank you for the fan you provided in the heatwave we have had! Very thoughtful.
A wonderful place to stay, thank you. We had a lovely time walking and on the beautiful beaches. Chapel Bay fort worth a visit. Lovely food at Stackpole Inn and cream tea at the Quay.
Delightful! Thank you :) x We had such a lovely time. Thank you for the cake too, it was delicious. Look forward to coming back soon.
Perfectly equipped holiday house with thoughtful and appreciated extras. Super location for all the delightful area has to offer. Shame the heatwave ended but the beaches are still the best in the world - arguably! Thank you.
First class accommodation. The cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore this part of Pembrokeshire. Good coastal walks. Pembroke Castle well worth a visit, good lunch at the Cornstore opposite castle over the Mill Pond bridge. Best pub food at The Stackpole Inn - must book.
Enjoyed our week here very much. A beautifully renovated barn, spacious, clean & well equipped. Quiet and also lovely garden. Out walking the coastal walks each day and have managed to avoid the rain most days! Recommend visit to Pembroke Castle - excellent guided talk and falconry display - great day out! We hope to visit again in the future. Good luck with Sycamore Barn!!
