Walking & Hiking Holidays

Blow away the cobwebs, enjoy the fresh coastal air and crisp country scents that both Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion have in abundance. The network of public footpaths throughout both Welsh counties are a brilliant way of seeing the spectacular West Wales countryside. We’re only too happy to share our local knowledge of some of the best walks we’ve found, and will always let you know of any special views, bird habitats and animals to look out for when you’re out & about.

Nearby Walks To Explore

The spectacular Coastal Path: The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the most spectacular long-distance routes in Britain. Established in 1970, it meanders along 186 miles of Britain’s most dramatic coastal scenery, running from St Dogmaels in the North to Amroth in the South. The Coast Path includes a network of popular inland paths perfect for the day walker, taking in spectacular spots such as Ceibwr Bay and Cemaes Head. Walking the cliff top paths with an abundance of wild flowers and plentiful sea birds, can be one of the most relaxing and scenic experiences of any holiday destination (especially in the Pembrokeshire sunshine).

The Pembrokeshire National Park and Preseli Hills, the land of legends: The National Park was established in 1952, with a varied landscape of rugged cliffs, beaches, estuaries, wooded valleys and the Preseli hills, this area of outstanding natural beauty is home to many ancient sites. Pentre Ifan in Brynberian is one of Wale’s best-known ancient sites, the New Stone Age burial chamber was built around 5,500 years ago. There are many legends associated with the neolithical stone trail that can be explored around the foothills of the spectacular Preseli hills.

Stunning location, very well-equipped cottage which was comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Good location for walking in the hills and also visiting the amazing coast.

Lovely stay at the Hayloft.

Recommend the 1171 restaurant in Cardigan and the walk around Dinas Island! Found the waterfall after a long walk and walk down the hill turn right and visit the jam factory! Loved Preseli hills and St David’s could have walked the entire coast if the weather had behaved. Fantastic hospitality and loved the seclusion and peace.
