This five-day walking holiday along the glorious coast on Wales on the Pembrokeshire Way. Over the course of the break you’ll cover just under 40 miles, so you needn’t be a real athlete to enjoy it. And because it’s all self-guided, you can go at your own pace.
Pembrokeshire is widely regarded to have the finest coast-line in Britain and the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path wends its way around the peninsula from St Dogmaels in the North to Amroth in the South. The path passes spectacular cliffs, wide expanses of sweeping sandy beaches, sheltered coves and peaceful estuaries.
Wildlife enthusiasts will be in their element on this break, as the coast here is home to all manner of creatures. The cliffs around Strumble Head to Abermawr are popular with seabirds, while out to sea, seals, porpoises – and even whales – have been spotted. Back on dry land, you can take your pick from prehistoric monuments and dinky chapels along the headland close to Fishguard. And then there’s the black sandy beach at Abereiddy that comes complete with a blue lagoon, set in the shell of an old disused quarry. Lying under the shadows of slate-grey cliffs crowned with emerald green grasses, this place makes a striking spot for a picnic.
This walking holiday is pretty easy-going – you’ll cover just under 40 miles over the five days. And the team that organises it has graded it as ‘easy to moderate’ – which means most of the time you’ll be walking on marked footpaths and you won’t come across too many steep climbs on your travels. It’ll suit families with children or anyone looking for a gentle, relaxing holiday with just the right amount of exercise. And because it’s a self-guided break it means you’ll get to spend plenty of quality time alone – or with the people you choose to take with you.
