New Years Resolutions

Comments Off on New Years Resolutions

Pembrokeshire is the perfect place to get fitter and start your New Year’s resolutions off with a bang! With a staggering 186-miles of coast path in Pembrokeshire alone, you have plenty of choice for walks and trail runs. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path stretches from St Dogmaels, in the North, and continues down to Amroth, in the South. 

The most challenging part of the Coast Path is known to be St Dogmaels to Newport. This 16-mile stretch has frequent, very steep hills. The coast path route continues from Newport to Fishguard and onto Pwll Deri to Porthgain. Now at 49 miles into the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast Path there are even more opportunities to photograph the dramatic sheer cliffs and fantastic scenery.

Throughout the 19th Century, Porthgain and Abereiddi were firstly known for their slate. After that, Porthgain was known for brick mining and then finally for gravel quarrying. Now an extremely popular tourist village, better known for the two art galleries, a cafe and a cosy, seaside pub.

From Porthgain to Whitesands and then onto Solva is the next segment of the coast path, covering another 23-miles, the path gets very rugged in sections, take extra care with your family and four legged friends. Between Whitesands and Solva there is plenty of access to cafes, shops and restaurants to refuel.

The next section of the coast path, Solva to Broad Haven, is the closest section to Newgale Holidays, and very easily accessible from our farm. This 12-mile stretch with a series of steep hills takes you to the coastal village of Broad Haven, which hosts an array of restaurants, cafes and public houses.

Broad Haven

After Broad Haven you meander round to Martin’s Haven, then onto Dale. For the next 16-mile segment to Neyland, it is best to check the tide tables first, as there are two tidal crossings and to avoid the high tides there are long detours via road.

From Neyland you cover 16-miles onto Angle, Freshwater West and Broad Haven South. The coast path between Freshwater West and Broad Haven South is restricted due to the Military base at Castlemartin. 

The final 25-miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path will take you from beautiful Broad Haven south to the finishing post in Amroth. Passing through Barafundle and Skrinkle Haven on this stretch, and many other breathtaking beaches makes this part probably the busiest part of the coast path.

Barafundle Bay

In 2004, Barafundle Bay was listed as one of the Top 12 beaches in the World. It was also named “The Best Beach in Britain” by The Good Holiday Guide. When reaching the end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, you can conclude your walk with some fantastic food in one of the popular restaurants in Amroth.

The Smugglers Bar & Grill serve home cooked, locally sourced food alongside the Blue Flag beach in Amroth. They also have a pirate themed children’s play area to keep the little ones entertained. Click here
