Pembrokeshire National Park

Click here for details of our walks in the area.

The coastline in Pembrokeshire is of such environmental and ecological importance that it has long been designated a National Park, ensuring that its spectacular beauty may be protected and conserved. Its one of the smallest national parks in Great Britain and predominately coastal; apart from taking in a few inland waterways and the Preseli Hills towards the north.

The coastline is some of the finest in Europe, stretching from Amroth on the border with Carmarthenshire in the east round to St Dogmaels in the north. A variety of varied landscapes are taken in comprising high rugged limestone cliff faces, harbours and mud flats in contrast to golden sands at the extremely popular holiday resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot. This makes for a great area to relax and unwind in at your own pace.

Coastal Path

Stretching for 186 miles (299 kilometres) from Amroth in the south east round to St Dogmaels in the northwest, the route follows the cliffs and beaches around the edge of the county. Along with the Milford Haven estuary, one of the finest natural harbours in the world.

Preseli Hills

A bare, haunting upland of gently sweeping hills scattered with remains of stone circles, burial chambers and standing stones. It was from these hills that around 2000 - 1500 BC huge "blue stones" were somehow transported 200 miles (320 Km) away to Sonehenge, where they were used to form the inner circle. Theories about the transportation of these stones (weighing upto four tons) suggest the use of a combination of tree-trunks as rollers and rafts.

Our walks in the area


Preseli Hills - Grade B

Frequently our first walk in Pembrokeshire takes us to the moorland of the Preseli hills. Plenty of hills and different scenery makes for interesting walking.

Pembrokeshire Coast Walks

West Wales beckons for our visit to the UK's only coastal National Park for a day walking along some of the most spectacular coastline in the country.
We will typically walk two or even three walks on different parts of the Pembrokeshire coast in any one year.


Freshwater East - Grade B,1

This walk includes the stunning section of Pembrokeshire from Freshwater East to the Army ranges at Pennally with views over Caldey Island.

Photos from this walk are available here.


St. David's and the Pembrokeshire Coast - Grade A,1

This rugged beautiful route takes us around the north side of St Bride's Bay to St Davids and it's historic Cathedral. Typically run in the summer term this one is a favourite of many members who look forward to the delightful little village of Solva on route.

Photos from this walk are available here.


Amroth to Tenby - Grade B,2

In 2006/7 we decided we needed another longer coastal walk and created the Amroth to Tenby route. This path runs along beaches, through a tunnel, over wooded hills and ends in the picturesque seaside town of Tenby with it's narrow alleys, town walls, harbour beach and old buildings.
