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.

Everything was laid out well. All of our needs were taken care of. The information on the Itinerary, especially with regard to meals, was exactly what we needed. The response once we had made our decision on which package was perfect. We got the response in enough time so that had we need to make any changes we could have. We felt confident that Mickledore would have assisted in any way to make our trip fit our needs. We will use Mickledore again.

I was very pleased with all that you provided for my holiday from the initial phone call. Very helpful, friendly lady to the information pack, guidebook etc. The accommodation overall was of an excellent standard and in some cases far exceeded my expectations. Yours is the best holiday company I have used so far and I cannot see anyone doing better. Highly recommended. You thought of everything and have obviously taken trouble to research accommodation.
