Pembrokeshire Coast Path

Within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in South Wales, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the UK’s well established National Trails. Following the rugged Welsh coastline, this is one of the finest long distance walks in Britain. The path enjoys stunning views across sea and land as it twists along a coastline of ever-changing natural beauty.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is a varied and at times challenging walk. The undulating nature of some parts of the walk present physically demanding ascents and descents, however it can be enjoyed in shorter sections accessible to walkers of all ages and abilities.

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, due to a multitude of habitats, an amazing array of flowers and plants can be seen at all times of year.

Our Holidays

As well as the whole route, we have divided the trail into three shorter sections. The first of these is the 63 mile south coast section from Amroth to Milford Haven. This is followed by the central coast section of 43 miles from Milford Haven to St Davids. Finally we have the 62 mile north coast section from St David’s to St Dogmaels. All three are well worth undertaking in their own right, alternatively you could walk each of them in turn until you’ve completed the whole trail.

Please bear in mind that the distances each day are trail distances only. They do not take into account walking to your accommodation. On some days the accommodation might be on or close to the trail but on other days you may need to walk one or two miles to get to your overnight stop.

Distances can also alter with high tides and the temporary closure of the MoD firing range, meaning walkers will cover between 168 miles (270km) and 186 miles (300km) in completing the route.

Pembrokeshire Central Coast: Milford Haven to St David's

Milford Haven to St David's 43 miles/69 km

This section is a real mixture from its beginnings in a part of Wales devoted to industry which soon changes to gentle cliffs, wooded valleys and pretty bays. The terrain then changes again to high rugged cliffs leading on through the ghostly past of coal mining, interspersed with coves and sandy beaches.

Client Feedback

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.
