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 coast line 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 and, 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 offer the south, central and north sections as self-guided walking holidays. All three are well worth undertaking in their own right, or take on each section separately until you’ve completed the whole path.

When choosing your route, please bear in mind that the actual distance walked on any day may sometimes vary by up to 2 miles/3 km from the quoted distances, (depending on the exact location of your accommodation). The mileages shown are typical door to door distances for each day.

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

Client Feedback

Although clearly more expensive than DIY booking of B&B and route planning, the excellence of service made it much easier to concentrate on simply enjoying the walking.

Both my husband and I enjoyed our hiking holiday very much! We truly had a fabulous time. We found the service provided by Mickledore to be excellent in every way. Everyone we talked to or emailed with was friendly, knowledgeable and quick to respond to our requests. We found the trip to be well planned out and everything flowed smoothly. Our luggage transport was great – no problems. The booklet with each day laid out was excellent – the directions to each B&B were accurate and easy to follow. All necessary information that we needed for the hike, meal planning and transportation were provided. Every guest house or B&B we stayed at was excellent – they were clean, well kept, close to the trail and included excellent breakfasts.The hosts were friendly and helpful. We will definitely use Mickledore again and recommend you to our friends.
