Pembrokeshire Coast Path
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path was the first National Trail in Wales and is situated largely within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It follows the breathtaking coastline from St Dogmael's to Amroth - 186 miles/229 km of rugged cliffs, sheltered coves, beaches and estuaries.
Over its entire length, its ascents and descents are reputed to be the equivalent of climbing Everest! Why not explore sections of this popular trail whilst enjoying a holiday in one of the many Wales Cottage Holidays properties to be found close to the path.
Starting on the path from the east of the county, see these properties close to the path between Tenby and Bosherston:-
Curlew Cottage, a four-bedroomed Georgian cottage at Manorbier sleeping 7 and with lots of character. The Boathouse is a beautiful, contemporary house at Freshwater East sleeping 6 and with spectacular sea views.
For the path around Neyland and Milford Haven:-
Over on the coast on St Bride's Bay, Wales Cottage Holidays offers The School House, a traditional cottage by the village hall at Walwyn's Castle sleeping 5, and The Boathouse which, as the name suggests, is a converted boathouse sleeping 4 only 800 yards from the beach. Shippon, sleeping 2, and Vine, sleeping 4, both stand in attractively landscaped grounds and are about a 20 minutes walk to the beach.
Out in the countryside, we have Middle Hall Farmhouse, a detached property near Little Haven sleeping 4 with a lovely big garden, while this charming 200 year old detached cottage in Little Haven, The Leap, is on a wooded hillside and only 800 yards from the beach and village pub.
