Stackpole Walled Gardens (Pembrokeshire Mencap Ltd)

The 6 acres of walled gardens on the National Trust estate at Stackpole were created around 1770 to provide for the needs of Sir John Campbell (later Lord Cawdor of Castlemartin) and his family who resided at the now demolished Stackpole court.
The Haverfordwest Mencap Society leased part of the gardens from the Trust and founded the Stackpole Garden Project in 1987 to give local adults with learning disabilities work experience and horticultural training. In 2000 the lease was renegotiated to include the remaining 2 acres which at that time were derelict.
We are now known a Pembrokeshire Mencap Ltd (Reg Charity No.1128982) and the original ethos of the Society remains. We provide a service for between 30 & 40 clients the majority of whom are undertaking City & Guilds qualifications in conjunction with Pembrokeshire College and Pembrokeshire Learning Disability Services.
The gardens are open to the public 7 days a week from 10am – 5pm from April to the end of September with reduced hours for the remaining months. Cawdors tea room is open daily from April to September serving a range of light bites, homemade cakes and beverages using produce from the garden wherever possible.
The Garden Shop sells a large selection of fruit & vegetables in season along with local free range eggs and a selection of jams & preserves made from garden produce.
We harvest our crops daily and ‘Pick Your Own’ soft fruit is available in season.
