This is THE place for fantastic walks in miles of National Park. With dramatic sea views, winding lanes, woodland and endless wild life at any time of year you will be physically and mentally blown away! There are walks of all lengths and difficulties, something to suit all with lots of great and informative websites:
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
They have an office next to the 5 Archers Car Park and are extremely helpful at suggesting walks to suit your requests.
A wonderful place, worth joining the National Trust for. It does sometimes get a little busy (only by Pembrokeshire standards). Walk to Barrafundle and further on over the wonderful limestone coast. Good cafe.
This is a great two and a half hour walk along coast with lily Ponds and places for Cream Teas!
Carew Castle and Tidal Mill
This is a magnificent stone castle within the reaches of the tidal Carew River. Although partially ruined it is steeped in history and there are guided tours as will as many activities including events and re-enactments. There is a café and it is well worth a visit as its position is spectacular. Our favorite Castle and there are lots of them in Pembrokeshire! Try and go at high tide when it looks it’s best.
St Catherine’s Island
The Island was only reopened in 2014 and you can have a tour at low tide telling you of its history with its origins as a place of worship around 1066 to having the fort built in the late 1850s to its use as a party venue over the last 12 months. The tour is short and also gives you a taste of what this beautiful seaside town has seen and been through.
Picton Castle and Gardens
The castle is unusual being half fortified manor house and half medieval castle. There is a walled garden with many labelled medicinal herbs and a unique collection of woodland shrubs, ferns and rhododendrons. You can have a tour of the castle and grounds and it runs many events from horse drawn carriage days to the ‘magic of flowers’ where the castle is filled with freshly cut flowers from the garden and you are able to breathe in the marvelous scent and absorb unique facts about them.
Tudor Merchant’s House
A replica of a merchants house in 1500 and on your door step.
St Govan’s Chapel A tiny hermitage built into the cliffs, it’s a wonderful isolated place. it’s a good long walk from Stackpole.
Bosherton Lily Ponds
Close to Stackpole it is a beautiful place to walk
National Botanic Garden of Wales
The garden covers 568 acres including a nature reserve and formal gardens. It is a centre for viewing, research, learning and finding out about the history of the estate it is set in. Many events are organized through out the year. With Pembrokeshire’s warm and wet climate and rich fertile soils it has many unique and exciting gardens to visit.
