self catering holiday wales

If you have rented a Pembrokeshire cottage for a self catering holiday in Wales then you may want to think about packing those walking boots as there are some great walks to be had all over the county and national park. Here we have complied a list of four of the most popular, though there are many more to be found.

1. Pembrokeshire Coast National Park: This is the most popular walking trail in Pembrokeshire. The trail stretches 186 miles along the still largely unspoilt and stunning coast. The path stretches from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. Don’t worry if 186 miles seems a bit far to walk as there are many buses along the route to help you find your way back. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority provides more details on over 200 walks available in the park so make sure you check out there website before you head off.

2. Preseli Hills: If you prefer a more challenging walk the Preseli Hills may be perfect for you. The hills lie in the north east of the county but still remain in the National Park

3. Gwaun Valley: is a green and lush valley found in the north of the county. The valley offers a nice alternative to the Preseli hills and coastline

4. Guided walks: during the summer months National park Rangers offer guided walks at locations across the park and county. The knowledgeable guides will inform you on the plants, wildlife and geography along the trail leaving you far more knowledgeable over the world around you. Detail of the walks can me found on the Park Authority website.
