Guidebook to 40 circular walks in Pembrokeshire in Wales. Routes take in the dramatic beauty of the national park and its coast, the Daugleddau and the Preseli Hills, while exploring wooded gorges, prehistoric hillforts and medieval castles. Walks range from 1 to 12 miles and route descriptions are accompanied by 1:50,000 OS map extracts.

Seasons Seasons
Every part of the year has much to offer, but highlights include: the spring flowers of coast and woodlands and the countless seabirds that arrive to breed on cliffs and offshore islands. Balmy summer days on the beaches can be idyllic. As autumn approaches, there are wonderful woodland colours and countless seals arriving to pup around the coast. Winters are generally mild allowing some species flower throughout the year, but snow occasionally lies on the high ground and coastal storms can be ferocious.
Centres Centres
Tenby, Pembroke, Narberth, Haverfordwest, St David's, Fishguard, Cardigan
Difficulty Difficulty
The walks are generally moderate between 2 and 12 miles (20km). There are some steep climbs and descents, and exposed cliff-tops demand sensible care, but nothing is overly demanding. In fair weather, common sense and basic navigation skills are sufficient to get you around.
Must See Must See
Pembrokeshire's stunning coast, with spectacular cliffs and superb beaches. Unspoilt inland gems including the expansive Preseli hills, the unfrequented upper Daugleddau, superb woodlands as well as fine churches, castles, industrial heritage sites and prehistoric relics.

  • Overview

    Guidebook to 40 circular walks in Pembrokeshire in Wales. The routes, which range from 1 to 12 miles, take in the dramatic beauty of the national park and its coast, the Daugleddau and the Preseli Hills, while exploring wooded gorges, prehistoric hillforts and medieval castles.

    Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by 1:50,000 mapping. For each route, information is also given regarding parking and public transport options, as well as toilets and refreshments available along the way. The guide also includes a useful route summary table, plus information on tides, the terrain, and weather in the region.

    This collection of walks includes something for everyone, from novices to experienced ramblers. None of the walks demand technical skill and, in good weather, pose few navigational problems. Whether following the coast, wandering the hills or exploring the valleys and woods, the walking everywhere is superb and will invariably reveal something unexpected along the way.

Dennis Kelsall

Having followed a career in Human Resource management through industry, local government and private consultancy, Dennis Kelsall was led into outdoor writing with a Cicerone commission for a guide to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, an area he'd loved since childhood. Inevitably, the constraints of the day job proved too onerous and, joining the Outdoor Writers Guild (as it then was), he became established as a full-time freelance writer and photographer.

Jan Kelsall

After completing a degree in psychology and sociology, Jan Kelsall embarked upon a local government career, where she met her husband Dennis. A shared passion for walking and the countryside led to a first commission with Cicerone for a guide to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and she eventually abandoned the security of employment to concentrate on the outdoors. Although based in Lancashire, their collaborative projects have since taken them the length and breadth of Britain.
