Pembrokeshire lies in the south west corner of Wales, U.K. It is mainly a lowland area to the west of the mountains and is bounded by the sea on three sides. The coastal rim along with the islands, the Preseli Hills and the upper Milford Haven Estuary, form the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
WhereWhenWales no longer offer guided walks however we hope the following information will be of interest .
24m/37.8km walk starts near Cardigan, in the small village of St Dogmaels, and finish in the narrow, brightly painted streets of Fishguard. The walks savoured the remote cliff tops of the northernmost section of the National Trail and is not for the feint-hearted. The highest point may only be 175m above sea-level, but the constant ups and downs produced more than 10,000m of ascent in total, with this section alone boasting more than 1900m - as much as a big day out in the mountains. But the rewards are immense, with sweeping views over a wonderfully rugged coastline, some brief crossings of beautiful yet secluded coves and plenty of opportunity for wildlife spotting along the way. The almost Mediterranean turquoise of the sea is complements by a kaleidoscope of colourful flowers.
Journey time from Cardiff to Pembrokeshire is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. Newport, is a quaint village with four inns and variety of eating establishments. The people are really friendly, mostly welsh speaking who quickly revert to English once they realise you're a non-welsh speaker.
