In a most spectacular coastal setting on the South Pembrokeshire Coastline. The beauty of the Pembrokeshire
coastline is well scripted and whilst the larger and popular beaches are known to most, Swan Lake Bay, accessed other than over West Moor land only by foot off the coastal path, remains one of a few isolated beaches on the coastline. Even at the height of summer you could be one of only a few handfuls of visitors. This completely unspoilt beach and bay is surrounded by the fields of West Moor Farm which contain an abundance of
wild flowers and many different species of wildlife and some truly spectacular views. Lovely walks in each direction along the
coastal path lead you to Manorbier, lauded by its most famous son, Geraldus Cambriensis, alias Gerald of Wales, as the 'pleasantest spot in Wales' which is dominated by its medieval Castle. In the opposite direction Freshwater East, a popular surfers' paradise, and leading on to Barafundle Bay and St. Govans Head.
