West Wales Walks

Walks to suit all fitness levels and interests in the county of Pembrokeshire – the national coast path, inland woodlands and the Preseli mountains as well as the many rivers and waterways are all explored and photographed.


Through the Woods to the Waterfall: a walk to Aberfforest

This is an enchanting walk, full of interest and adventure, but it does require a degree of agility and wouldn’t suit anyone with mobility problems. The path is uneven, steep in places and can be muddy. Allow at least two hours there and back, depending on how much time you want to spend at the […]

St Brides Bay, Pembrokeshire

St Brides – a walk around the castle.

  They say a walk is always quicker on the way back… And it certainly is if you go out along the coast south from St Brides Haven and return via inland footpaths. In fact, it’s probably best to allow two hours for going outward and one hour for coming back – because the coastal […]

Around St Ishmael’s.

  Away from its busy inland towns, Pembrokeshire offers huge helpings of tranquillity. And one of its most peaceful areas centres on the southern coastal village of St Ishmael’s. A footway alongside the village’s expansive sports field takes you to the coastal path. And heading east along the clifftops, you soon come to the vertiginous […]

When West Wales is Wet Wales…

It’s still wonderful! I must love Pembrokeshire, because even when it’s cold, wintry and wet, I can’t resist going out and exploring it. And it never seems to disappoint. On my latest outing from St Florence, the lanes were occasionally more like streams, as my wellies, my umbrella and I headed for Manorbier under a […]

Walking the Pembrokeshire Coast.

It is midwinter in Wales and I’m standing on a deserted beach – and I’m completely naked and letting the warm December sun dry me off. Because I’ve just been swimming in the sea (which on a bright day like this doesn’t feel anywhere near as cold as you might fear) and because I neglected […]
