The Slebech Park Estate is set in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park in West Wales. The facilities at Slebech Park revolve around the 18th century Grade II listed coach house, once the centre of the traditional agricultural Estate. The Coach House commands a stunning position on the shores of the Daucleddau, one of Europe’s largest natural harbours. The Estate numbers some 650 acres split between mature ancient woodlands, fallow meadows and arable land.
Slebech holds an important position in the history of Wales. During the 13th and 14th centuries it was home to the most powerful monastic foundations in Wales. It was a hospice of the knights of St John and as such was arresting place for the pilgrims en route to St David and a gathering point for the crusades. The only remaining structure associated with these times is the ruined 13th century church in the grounds with the Norman watch tower as its bell tower. As a result of the hospice, Slebech became an important point of the waterway and unusually had lands both sides of the estuary. The Park was not created until 1760 when Slebech Hall was built of the old commandery of St John, reputably designed by Antony Ketch, the famous Georgian architect, the houses remains one of the most important Georgian hoses today in Wales.. The majority of the coach house was built about the same time as Slebech Hall, an extension of the older granary, one of a number of granaries or mills found along the shore of the estuary.
There are 15 bespoke bedrooms, tastefully designed to enhance the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside.
The restaurant has a growing reputation for being one of the finest in Pembrokeshire, showcasing the finest of Welsh and locally sourced ingredients, supplemented by good old fashioned Pembrokeshire.

At night you will hear the Curlews calling while by the day the shores abound with wading birds notably shell duck in the spring and Eagrets. In the winter the woods abound with Woodcock, Snipe and our Pheasants. Kingfishers and Herons are other common sightings. More elusive are the otters that fish on the edge of the water early in the morning for sea trout (Sewin) and if you are really lucky, you may see a Grey Seal following the Sea Bass up river. More important than all of that are the 7 species of bat that reside in attics and cellars of the coach house itself and in the medieval tunnels nearby. At dusk these highly sophisticated mammals are to be seen going out to feed on insects in the gardens over the ponds that surround the area. They may fly as far as 10 miles in search of food but in the development of Slebech Park the team have worked closely with the Countryside Commission for Wales to enhance the habitat for all the different species, the rarest of which is the Greater Horseshoe. Work has included the planting of shrubs, the clearing of ponds and event the construction of a new cave for the bats to hibernate in during winter. The environment is very important and they value the fact there is minimal light pollution and on cloudless night you can truly star gaze. Outside lighting is kept to a minimum also so as not to deter the bats, There is a very well respected Pheasant shoot on site in season.Clay pigeon shooting is available on request, Visit Wales Walkers welcomed award.
