Bosherston Lily Ponds are part of the National Trust’s Stackpole Estate and are about 5 miles out of Pembroke. The ponds are the result of three small valleys being flooded to create a series of lakes for the earls of Cawdor and their families to enjoy.
Nowadays, there are several walks available depending on your energy levels. This is the kind of walking where you need to stop and look and listen as there is so much wildlife to spot and so much beauty to enjoy. The Freshwater Magic walk is one of our favourites and definitely worth checking out!
The lilies flower in June and make a colourful spectacle. Tiny moorhens and their chicks make a wonderful sight when they are dashing about on the lily pads. The lily ponds are now a wildlife habitat famous for their otters, water birds and dragonflies. There are lots of places to sit and admire the view along the way. Why not take a picnic with you and make a day of it but watch out for the robins – they are so friendly they will come and enjoy your sandwiches with you!
At the far end of the lakes is Broad Haven South beach, a popular dog-friendly beach in West Wales. If you fancy a pub lunch, the St Govan’s Inn is a short walk into the Village of Bosherston. There is also the Ye Olde Worlde Cafe (known now as Bosh Tea Rooms) – which is perfect for afternoon tea.
