Walking in Wild West Wales

January 2021

Walking is a popular choice of activity for our guests here at Trenewydd Farm. Nestled on the North Pembrokeshire coastline, near the picturesque villages of Moylegrove and St Dogmaels, we are on the edge of the famous Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and just a stone's throw from the Coastal Path.

Our National Park is the only coastal national park in the UK, and if you're looking for stunning scenery while you wander, look no further. Craggy cliffs and pebbled coves meet rolling sand dunes and miles of sandy beaches, many of which are dog friendly. This stretch of coastline was voted the second best in the whole world, according to National Geographic, covering 186 miles of Wales' full 240 mile coastal path and including 58 gorgeous beaches and coves. Most of the Pembrokeshire section is at cliff-level and it starts (or ends!) at St Dogmaels, just under two miles away.

Wales is the first country in the world to have a dedicated footpath that follows the entire coastline, so you really can dip in and out wherever takes your fancy. The famed travel companion Lonely Planet, says "...the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the most spectacular long-distance routes in Britain... Marine life is plentiful, and rare birds make the most of the remote cliffs, where peregrine falcons, red kites, buzzards, choughs, puffins and gannets can be spotted." And how about this for a spectacular and evocative quote: "The Pembrokeshire coast is what you imagine the world would look like if God were a geology teacher with artistic yearnings".

Top tip: if you want to walk a section of the Coastal Path, but don't fancy the trip back as well, check out the coastal bus services. The wonderfully-named Poppit Rocket, Strumble Shuttle, Celtic Coaster and Puffin Shuttle are on hand to drop you back to your starting point.

4 Walks near to Trenewydd Farm

1. Moylegrove to Newport

This 7 mile walk takes in the famous 'Witches Cauldron', and also Ceibwr Bay which you can see from the top of the fields at Trenewydd Farm. A note of caution, there are some steep sections and you'll need to bring refreshments with you.

2. Moylegrove to Monington (circular)

No need to worry about finding your way back for this one, and you can join it right from Trenewydd as we're right next to Pantsaeson Farm. This is a slightly shorter at 6 miles (or an even shorter 3.5 mile option) and comes further inland with some wooded trails.

3. St Dogmaels to Cemaes Head

This walk starts from the carpark in St Dogmaels, easily reachable from Trenewydd. It's a challenging length at 10 miles, but easily adapted to make it a little more manageable.

4. Moylegrove to St Dogmaels

Rather alarmingly, this is noted as being one of the 'most challenging' sections of the coastal path, so if you're up for a big effort, this one is for you! If you want to tack on a section to this 8-mile route, you can walk it from your front door.
