The Coastal Paths of Pembrokeshire
Grab your walking boots and head for the Pembrokeshire coastal path, 186 miles of designated coastal trails, from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, the trail covers a huge variety of maritime landscape, from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries with small coastal villages dotted along its length offering welcome breaks to visitors on the way. The coastline also offers fantastic surfing, sailing, swimming, rock pooling and coasteering.
Lying almost entirely within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the trail has an array of coastal flowers, birds and sea life, as well as evidence of human activity from Neolithic times to the present. As far as possible the route runs close to the cliff edge and coast and the walking is not too strenuous, but has some undulations and narrow sections, including stiles.
For the majority of walkers, the coastal path is walked in shorter sections and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park lists some 130 shorter circular walks on its website. There is access to the coastal path by car and the whole coast is served by a number of dedicated walkers' bus services, which operate over the length of the path, including the Puffin Shuttle, the Coastal Cruiser, the Celtic Coaster, St David's Peninsula Shuttle Service, the Strumble Shuttle, and the Poppit Rocket.
Many of our cottages are located within a short drive to the coast so we've put together a list of some great options for you to browse.
