Pembrokeshire has one of the most spectacular coastlines in the British Isles. This walk includes some of its most beautiful stretches, featuring magnificent cliffs, hidden beaches, varied bird-life and some interesting fishing villages and historic towns.
Walk the rugged coastal path with a small group, led by our knowledgeable local guide, enjoying the spectacular coastal scenery with wild flowers carpeting the cliffs, stretches of golden sand and offshore islands with a wealth of marine and bird life.
Beginning on the 8th June 2019, this 4 night guided walk follows the Pembrokeshire Coast Path – a must for walkers.
Your guide will not only lead the way, but give you an insight into the fascinating local history and wildlife of the region.
The tour starts in the small medieval coastal town of Newport in the Pembrokeshire National Park and winds its way over cliff tops and hidden coves where you may catch a glimpse of the abundant sea-life; dolphins, seals, puffins, basking sharks and even sea turtles have been spotted. You will pass through picturesque fishing villages and historic towns, before reaching the historic city of St. Davids.
This will be a small guided group with a maximum of 8 participants.

Day 1: Arrival in Newport

Explore the ancient streets and wander down to the Nevern Estuary that is teeming with wildlife. In the late afternoon, meet the rest of the group and your guide before dinner. Overnight at the Golden Lion Inn. (Dinner)
Day 2: Newport – Fishguard (11 miles/18 km, 6 hours)
A hike of about 6 hours to the larger town of Fishguard. Walk around beautiful Dinas Island, in fact a peninsula, enjoying the richly coloured moors on the coastal hills. Discover hidden coves and beaches and the ruined old church of St Brynach, destroyed by coastal erosion but once large enough to hold a congregation of 300. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Day 3: Fishguard to Trefin (12.5 miles/20km, 6.5 hours)
Follow the rugged coast around Stumble Head, a glorious wild stretch of coast popular with birdwatchers. The trail follows a beautiful stretch of coast dotted with picturesque coves often frequented by seals. The rocks of the hinterland of Pembrokeshire provided the building blocks for the magnificent stone circle at Stonehenge. Upon reaching the hamlet of Tref Asser, you take the coastal bus for the 25 minutes journey to the friendly village of Trefin. Overnight in Trefin. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Day 4: Trefin – St. Davids (12 miles/19km, 6.5 hours)
From Trefin walk to Porthgain where you see the remains of the slate industry in Wales and continue along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path to White Sands Bay and on to St. Davids – the smallest city in Britain. This is the final resting place of the Welsh patron saint after which the city is named and boasts a magnificent cathedral adjacent to the beautiful ruins of the Bishops Palace. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Day 5: Depart St. Davids
Following breakfast this morning our guided tour ends and you depart St. Davids – we can organise extra nights should you wish to spend more time here. (Breakfast)
You will walk between 13 and 18 kilometres per day over beaches, cliffs, and (un)paved roads, with a height between 350 and 550 metres.
