Many favour the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path as a focus for their walks, but you don’t have to tackle the whole thing in one go: you can choose short stretches, most of which are conveniently designed as circular routes so that you get to explore some inland terrain as well as the dramatic and beautiful coastline. Pembrokeshire Coast National Park have a guide for Accessible walks for families with young children or pushchairs, less able bodied people, and anyone that just wants a leisurely stroll. If you fancy walking a long stretch of the coast path, there are many buses available to take you back to base. See details of walks on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Valleys such as Cwm Gwaun and Nevern and the area around the Cleddau Estuary are well worth exploring at any time of year; their ancient woodland and rich variety of wildflowers and bird life are enchanting. The Preseli Hills (Mynydd Preseli) are a great attraction for those who enjoy open moorland with sheep and ponies roaming amongst bracken and heather. Views are often best on showery days; it tends to be hazy when the weather is fair. Towns and villages such as St Davids, Tenby and Solva offer convenient starting points for many of the walks, and allow for a visit to a pub or cafe as a reward for your efforts.

The special seasonal coastal buses such as Strumble ShuttlePuffin Shuttle and Poppit Rocket operate on a ‘Hail and Ride’ basis so that you can stop them wherever you want (so long as it’s a safe place). They make it much easier to walk the coastal path since you don’t have to double back each day. Check the Pembrokeshire County Council website for the bus routes and timetables.
