The best of Pembrokeshire

Coastal walking tour in the national park.

Walk the best of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in a week. Hidden away in the far south west corner of Wales, Pembrokeshire has rugged beauty, secluded coves, long sandy beaches, prolific birdlife and a rich history. During a week of first class walking you will wander through flower filled fields, enjoy warm hospitality in quaint fishing villages, stride out along high Atlantic cliffs and visit historic St David’s Cathedral.Bird watchers and nature lovers will be thrilled by Skomer Island, the largest colony of seabirds in southern Britain is home to puffins, kittwakes, fulmars and 100,000 pairs of shearwaters. Your walk continues on the coastal path, through meadows bursting with wild flowers, to Little Haven and then on past the surfers’ paradise of Newgale to the charming town of Solva, probably the most beautiful village in Pembrokeshire. St David’s, Britain’s smallest city, is your base for the final two nights of your trip. Discover the 12th Century Cathedral, visit the Bishop’s Palace, take a boat trip to walk on Ramsey Island or continue on one of the most rugged sections of the coast path to Whitesands Bay.

The largest of the Pembrokeshire Islands is home to the largest colony of seabirds in southern Britain. At its best in spring and early summer thousands of puffins, Manx shearwaters, razorbills and kittiwakes breed on the island. Look out for seals and dolphins on the short boat trip to the island where you can enjoy an excellent walk which explores the best of the fauna, flora and history of Skomer.

From Solva the path continues to follow the clifftops west, passing several small coves. The cliffs are dramatic and as always the views superb. You leave the coast at St Non’s, the birthplace of St David, patron saint of Wales. The path then heads inland to St David’s, the smallest city in Britain and home to 12th century St David’s Cathedral. The impressive cathedral was built on the site of St David’s monastery in 1181. Destroyed and restored over the centuries it is an important pilgrimage site and together with the Bishop’s Palace can be explored at length.
