Description of Pembrokeshire self guided walking holiday

Discover the unspoiled landscapes and wild coast of Walesí most western peninsula, on this Pembrokeshire self guided walking holiday. You will hike along the beautiful northern section of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire coast path, which stretches from St Dogmaels to St Davids. Highlights of this route include overhanging cliffs and dramatic rock formations, Cemaes Head and Strumble Head, which are the best places on this path for spotting seals and dolphins and lots of lovely secluded bays and sandy beaches.

This section is about 76 miles (122km) long and we recommend dividing it up into walks of between 10 and 15 miles (16 and 24km), across five days of walking, making this a six night stay. This is a self guided walking break, so you are free to set the pace youíre comfortable with, and itís also a centre based holiday, so itís ideal if you like to walk independently but donít want a point to point walk that involves packing your kit each day. Youíll be based at our five star rated eco lodge, just a mile from the coast. For a truly low carbon holiday, leave the car at home and travel here by train. You can then use the coastal shuttle buses that run from May until September, to reach each dayís walk.

This holiday is really flexible. You can decide which order you do the walks in and they can generally be cut short, too, if you fancy less time out on the trail. If you donít have five days to spare, we can trim this holiday, or we can extend it so you have longer to explore Ė thereís more great walking inland, and St Davids and Newport are both worth spending time in. We also offer coasteering, sea kayaking and surfing.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Pembrokeshire self guided walking holiday

Environment

We are committed to continuing to be an economic force for sustainable use of our coastal National Park Ė our priorities are to meet the needs and expectations of our customers, whilst at the same time benefiting the local people, the local economy, and respecting the environment.

This adventure centre is a founder member of the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group, which exists to develop sustainable environmental growth in a rapidly expanding outdoor adventure and tourism industry, and we are also involved in actively lobbying and campaigning for increased access to Pembrokeshire via public transport.

Surfing, coasteering, kayaking and hiking are all fabulous low impact ways of exploring the coastline. We keep travelling to a minimum using our wonderful nearby locations for the activities, and use our minibuses instead of many separate cars to lessen the impact of our travel.

Our adventure lodge accommodation is low impact and low carbon in many ways Ė a ground source heat pump provides hot water and heating, and electricity is sourced from a green energy provider. Food is sourced locally as far as possible, food waste is composted, and other waste is recycled. We have acheived the Green Dragon environmental standard level 2. We reuse, reduce and recycle as far as possible, and encourage our guests to do the same.

Community

We employ a range of local people as adventure guides and hospitality staff, and through our interactions with our guests we aim to impart our enthusiasm of, and respect for, the inspirational Pembrokeshire coast and countyside By providing year round employment for local people, and year round visitors in a geographical area renowned for problems of seasonality we make a strong and positive contribution to the local economy.
Through the Marine Conservation Society "adopt a beach scheme" we run quarterly beach cleans at our local beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach.
As part of our working partnership with the National Trust, we report back on our significant wildlife findings and we declare our usage of their sites so that any effects on wildlife can be monitored.
Our owner and manager Sophie Hurst is on the executive committee of the North Pembrokeshire Transport Forum and they have been campaigning for the re-introduction of the trains services to Fishguard for the past 10 years. In 2011 the service was boosted by Welsh government funding for 5 trains a day to Fishguard our local train station, so we are very delighted about that! This means our local train station is just 5 miles away.
We support other local businesses in our community and have links with local horse riding stables and Ramsey Island boat trip providers which we recommend to our guests.
