Description

Coppet Hall Beach is a small sandy beach with some pebbles at the high tide line. Can get busy in summer. You can park at the beach or access via a short walk through an old railway tunnel from Saundersfoot village.

Coppet Hall beach is at the northern end of Saundersfoot Bay and is a beach of sand, backed by some shingle and a Pay and Display car park.

Facilities include toilets and the Coast Beach Centre with a bar/restaurant. Beach access is down steps or a short track. A voluntary dog ban operates from 10 am to 5 pm from May to September inclusive. Saundersfoot’s rail station is just over a mile away, and Coppet Hall can be reached by following the B4316 down to St Issell’s church, taking a public footpath through the Old Mill Caravan Park. The final section of this footpath follows the line of a former horse-drawn tramway and is known as the Black Walk.

At low tide, you can walk left to Amroth Beach or right you can get all the way around to Monkstone beach crossing Saundersfoot Beach and Glen Beach. Remember to check our tide time table at the bottom of our home page before setting out.

The name ‘Coppet Hall’ derives from ‘Coal Pit haul’ - a reference to its earlier mining days. A former colliery tramway which ran from Saundersfoot harbour to Stepaside is now a foot and cycle path, linking Coppet Hall to Saundersfoot through a 70-yard tunnel, and to Wisemans Bridge via tunnels of 20 and 110 yards. Two old mine adits, now blocked off, can be seen adjacent to the path. These were haematite (iron ore) workings and did not link to pits further inland. Wisemans Bridge can also be reached along a wooded cliff path which begins at the rear of the car park.
