Just to the north of the delightful village of Saundersfoot, Coppet Hall is a must-see location - a small cluster of properties that lies next to a beautiful sandy beach, at the foot of a wooded valley.
Although remote, Coppet Hall enjoys easy access to Saundersfoot
through the old railway tunnel or across the beach - allowing
visitors to easily explore the larger town and use their
facilities. During the summer the area receives many tourists
attracted by the easy parking above the flat, sandy beach, which
was granted the Blue Flag Beach award in 2012.
Coppet Hall provides a useful resting point on the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, as it falls on the line of the old coal railway which runs along the seawall between Saundersfoot Harbour and Wisemans Bridge, before turning inland.
What to do in Coppet Hall
There are plenty of activities for all the family in Coppet Hall and Saundersfoot - from relaxing on the beach and exploring some of the natural rockpools to partaking in some water sports or visiting Saunderfoot's local shops, bars and restaurants.
As a Centre of Excellence, Coppet Hall will be made accessible -
enabling all visitors to enjoy grand panoramic views from new
visitor centre to the beach.
The redevelopment proposals have been thoughtfully designed to complement the award-winning beach and provide 'safe route' walkways between the car parks and the family changing cubicles found in the Visitor Centre. The changing facilities are equipped with toilets and showers to make Coppet Hall the 'go-to' beach destination in South East Pembrokeshire.
Take a walk along the Pembrokeshire National Trail – 186 miles of spectacular coastal walking, which now comprises part of the All Wales Coastal Path. Stay safe on the Coastal Path
Why not that a short walk from Coppet Hall through the old railway tunnel to Amroth, and take in a spot of lunch, a quick coffee, or just some sitting and staring. More info about the tunnels can be found here ....

With plenty of sand even at high tide, Coppet Hall is a great location for some beach games. Get out that rounders set, cricket and football and have some good old fashioned family fun.
Get to grips with rockpooling
From 2014 you’ll be able to undertake a whole range of watersports from the new Coppet Hall visitor centre – keep your ear out for news on kayaking, walking and cycling from the centre.
The development will allow visitors of all abilities to enjoy the panoramic views from Coppet Hall beach stretching across Carmarthen Bay. Coppet Hall provides an ideal base to explore further delights such as Saundersfoot and Amroth which can be readily accessed by foot along the Coastal Path.
