The total worth of one of Pembrokeshire’s and Wales’ leading natural attractions has been laid bare in figures released last month.

The Wales Coastal Path, which runs through Pembrokeshire, attracted 102,000 visitors last year to the county and nearly three million visitors to Wales according to Cardiff University research.

The path, which stretches 870 miles from the River Dee in Flintshire in the north to Chepstow in the south, provides 'a real economic boost to coastal towns in Wales' according to Environment Minister John Griffiths.

Offering walkers stunning vistas amidst rolling coastal countryside, the Wales Coastal Path is one of the region’s proudest features and has become something of a Mecca for nature enthusiasts.

Should you be planning a break in one of the stunning Pembrokeshire cottages this summer, be sure to enjoy a walk along this beautiful part of the country.
