Walking Holidays in Wales

Boasting several National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stunning scenery is never far away on a walking holiday in Wales. With the mountainous region of Snowdonia in the north and the Cambrian Mountains and Brecon Beacons further south there is an abundance of choice for a day in the hills. Add to this a spectacular coastline and Wales is a magnet for walkers of all abilities.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the finest long distance walks in Britain. The path enjoys stunning views across sea and land as it twists along a coast line of ever-changing natural beauty.  Bird watchers and plant lovers are drawn to the area due to the rich diversity of wildlife to be seen. Sea birds thrive on the inaccessible cliffs and offshore islands and, due to a multitude of habitats, an amazing array of flowers and plants can be seen at all times of year.

Discover the rugged Welsh coastline and all it has to offer on one of our self-guided walking holidays. With walks varying from 4 to 16 days in length we can create the perfect walking holiday to suit your needs.

The route starts in the seaside village of Amroth in the South, then follows the coastline of the Pembrokeshire National Park before finally finishing in the village of St Dogmaels near Cardigan.

Client Feedback

Everything ran so well and I had a lovely trouble free time.

This was a fabulous holiday and experience for me that I will remember always. The planning, preparation and knowledge of the Coast to Coast that Mickledore have was the primary reason for the venture being such a success. You clearly have a great portfolio of hosts who enjoy delivering genuine hospitality. The facilities were also a far cry from the brands that are such a part of modern life and that was perfect for me.

I am a repeat customer, having done Coast to Coast with you in 2013. I knew everything would well-planned and easy from prior experience, and you didn’t disappoint. The trip was very-well designed, the accommodations very nice, and the logistics were flawless. I was able to focus just on the enjoyment of walking and leave the logistics/planning to you. I also appreciate how clear and honest you are in your dealings.
