Autumn can be a glorious time for being outdoors in Pembrokeshire, with clear skies and uncrowded beaches. Choose a Wales Holidays cottage and don your walking boots for a stretch or two of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Now covering 186 miles of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Britain, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path was Wales's first long distance walking route. It first opened in 1970 and today is a substantial part of the Wales Coast Path. Running from St Dogmael’s near Cardigan and North Pembrokeshire, the Path continues all around the coast to Amroth near Saundersfoot.
Taking on the entire route would represent an impressive physical challenge to any walker but, if you’re looking for something a little less demanding, the path offers a tremendous variety of shorter day walks. Much of the route is at cliff-top level, providing superb views of the cliffs, beaches and offshore islands, with their wealth of marine and bird life. Whatever the weather over the coming months, dress accordingly and you’re sure to enjoy the coastline’s stunning natural beauty! With its rich scenery and wildlife, its cliff top wild flowers and its wealth of cultural and historical diversity stretching from the Iron Age to the present time, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path provides something for everyone. Wales Holidays is very pleased to offer many cottages within a mile of the path.
