BEACHES
My favourite beach and less than a 15 minute drive from the house. A small bay backed by dunes and pine trees. Accessible only by a half mile walk from the nearest car park. Swathes of golden sand and crystal clear waters. Barafundle has been voted many many times as one of the best beaches in Britain and the world.

A 10 minute drive from the house. Noted for its strong waves and currents and one of Wales' top surfing locations. The beach is wide, sandy and backed by an extensive system of dunes. Freshwater West was featured in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, where it was used as the backdrop for Dobby's shell cottage, which was built on-site.
