Little Milford woods

West Wales Walks: Little Milford.

Woodland with a history. Hidden between the main road from Haverfordwest and the Cleddau are some wonderful woodlands, donated to the National Trust in 1975 by Mr Harcourt Roberts. 56 acres  of mixed deciduous and conifer woods with tempting glimpses of the Western Cleddau make a little-known and easy-going place to stroll.

A Royal Day Out.

Nigel Summerley walks from Dale to Mill Bay with thoughts of the Tudors and the Windsors on his mind… I set off from Dale for a date with royalty – or at least with royal history – and sunshine decided to accompany me all the way. It was such a lovely day that it was […]

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 […]

Preseli Mountains, Pembrokeshire

The Preselis.

Pembrokeshire’s mountains.   If you can bear to tear yourself away from Pembrokeshire’s beaches for day I would recommend a drive inland to explore the unspoilt moorland and fascinating uplands of the Preseli hills. Further south the pastoral farmland is enchanting too, but these hills offer a Welsh hillscape to delight in. On a clear […]
