Intrepid explorers will be in their element on this three-night break in North Pembrokeshire. During the day you’ll walk up to 14 miles, while come evening, you’ll set up camp at campsites in the great outdoors. After three days you’ll probably be in need of a long hot bath, but you’ll forget about that once you set sight on the scenery and wildlife here.
Think of Wales and you’ll probably conjure up images of Welsh male-voice choirs, rolling hills dotted with cotton-wool-like sheep, and perhaps a freshly-griddled Welsh cake. It may well be a small country, but it’s definitely got a big heart. And not even the typical Welsh weather can dampen the spirits when you’re faced with the dramatic scenery of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Ancient burial chambers stud hillsides, sandy beaches hug the coastline, and dense woodland shelters all manner of wildlife. Hiking here isn’t just any old walk in the park.
Walking in North Pembrokeshire serves up a huge array wildlife, landscapes and history. The cliffs around Strumble Head 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 tiny chapels along the headland close to Fishguard. And St Davids - the smallest city in Britain with a cathedral that dates back to 1200 has drawn crowds since the Middle Ages.
This walking and camping trip is all about connecting you with the great outdoors. There is wild camping involved – where you set up your own mini campsite for the night – so no amenities and no electricity. It’s probably best if you’re not afraid of roughing it and don’t need 5-star luxury to get a decent night’s sleep. Another thing to consider is the walking element – this is Wales, and it’s a country not known for its flat terrain, so expect demanding walks of up to 14 miles per day.
