Visited as lilies in flower beautiful quiet walks along to the beaches. Stunning array of dragonflies. National trust car park became very busy during the afternoon but not a problem would recommend. A visit on route to the beaches .

We stayed at Stackpole Quay for 10 days and visited the Lily Ponds 7 times 😊 each visit we saw something new - swans, ducks, heron, damsel flies, dragon flies and to top it all Baby Toads migrating by the dozen!

Hi yes I think if you took the right path, instead of the left there were a couple of seats to use.

Hi Cheryl , No you can't , it's actually protected and as it is literally covered in lilly pads, it would destroy the habitat if you kayaked on there ..
