Stackpole 1997

The Stackpole Centre in Pembrokeshire has accessible accommodation, including a swimming pool with a hoist, and a big group kitchen.

Our holiday started out rather wet.

st-govans-headThis did not prevent us from having a good time. We had a trip to St Govans Head, in the rain.
st-govans-viewWe could still see some of the dramatic coastline, and noone was blown off a cliff.

We had several day trips; one to St Davids, where we visited the Marine Life centre and the Cathedral and the Archbishops Palace.

archbishops-palace-groupAt the Archbishops palace – before the downpour which sent us back to the Minibus.

We also did various outdoor activities.

sailors-returnReturning from ‘sailing’ in a flat calm and pouring rain.

We enjoyed it so much that we returned to Stackpole in 1998.
