Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 16. Sandy Haven to The Gann

Walk 16 starts on the western side of Sandy Haven, our previous walk having reached the eastern side of this tidal inlet. There’s very limited parking on this side of the Haven, a layby on the country lane near Skerryback Farm provides a safe space only a short distance uphill from the lane which leads …

Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 15. Milford Haven to Sandy Haven

Our plans to make progress with a series of walks on the Pembrokeshire coast this year were thrown into disarray when the coronavirus / Covid-19 global pandemic resulted in the UK implementing a national lockdown in March 2020. In Wales non-essential travel was limited to 5 miles from a home address and activities such as …

Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 13. Pwllcrochan to Pembroke

The next stage walk 13 is from the Pwllcrochan Church to Pembroke town, a distance of 6.6 miles on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. From Pwllcrochan Church we headed east along a country lane and then followed the coast path way-markers around the boundary of the power station. The large site is surprisingly well hidden from …

Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 12. Angle Bay to Pwllcrochan

After the stunning scenery of the South Pembrokeshire coastline it was a little difficult to be enthused about the next stages of the coast path between Angle Bay and Cleddau Bridge. In the maritime heyday of tall sailing ships the natural deep waterway of Milford Haven was renowned for its scenic beauty and famously described …

Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 11. Freshwater West and Angle

This walk covered the coast path and countryside of the Angle Peninsula in South Pembrokeshire. We completed this walk in March 2019 on a weekend of fine blue sky spring weather, perfect conditions for a coastal walk. Our start point was the beach car park at West Angle Bay which is situated at the end …

Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 9. St. Govan’s & Green Bridge of Wales

This walk from St. Govan’s headed westwards across a remote, rugged and wild coastal landscape until reaching the awesome natural rock feature the Green Bridge of Wales. As this area is part of the Ministry Of Defence Castlemartin Range East, access is restricted on military training days and planning a walk here in advance is …

Ceredigion Coast Walk 1. Gwbert to St. Dogmael’s

In late February we ventured to Ceredigion, West Wales, for our first coast path walks outside of Pembrokeshire. Ceredigion is Pembrokeshire’s northern neighbour and the county boundary is the estuary of the River Teifi. We stayed at The Gwbert Hotel in the coastal hamlet of Gwbert-on-Sea, three miles north of Cardigan. The hotel is located directly on …

Pembrokeshire Coast Walk 3. Tenby to Lydstep Haven

Returning to Pembrokeshire to walk the next section of the coast path from Tenby to Lydstep Haven was really enjoyable in fine early autumn weather. We started this walk within the town’s medieval walls, passing the stone tower which sits high above South Beach and along The Esplanade. The pavement footpath here provides a superb …
