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.

Best service ever! Nice that you are an organisation from Cumbria. We can feel that you have good contacts with the different people at the locations. Also, the book with the itinerary was helpful.

This was the holiday I was looking for .. to be out in the countryside and along the seaside with little worries. It was absolutely beautiful and we would highly recommend the Northumberland Coast Path. What made the holiday even more special was we did not have to worry about a thing. Our accommodation was taken care of, luggage transferred for us, breakfast/lunch provided so there was nothing left to do but enjoy the walk. An amazing part of the UK with such natural beauty and friendly people. We are grateful to Mickledore for making our first walking holiday carefree and memorable. We also thank the accommodations for taking such good care of us and we look forward to another walk in the future through Mickledore!
