Family Friendly Spring Pembrokeshire Walks

Carew Castle

May is National Walking Month and here at Bluestone we’re proud to call the UK’s only coastal National Park home!

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path covers 186 miles of beautiful coastline and there are plenty of quaint towns and villages to visit along the way.

Here are some of our favourite Pembrokeshire walks:

Marloes Peninsula

Marloes
A walk along Marloes Peninsula is a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

This is a beautiful part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and there are three viewpoints along the way to make the most of it.

It’s a mainly grassy path but it is mostly level with a few undulating gradients along the way.   

You’ll pass an Iron Age fort, Skokholm, Skomer and Grassholm Islands on your journey. Be sure to look out for a whole variety of birds, as this area is home to very important colonies of seabirds especially during the summer months.

Saundersfoot to Stepaside

Saundersfoot
This path follows the railway line which once transported coal from the local mines to Saundersfoot Harbour.

Park in Saundersfoot, follow the strand and head towards Coppit Hall where you’ll pass through two tunnels along the coast on your adventure.

You can stop for lunch in Wiseman’s Bridge if you please, before carrying on through the woodland to Stepaside.

Bosherston Lily Ponds

This leisurely stroll has plenty to offer with a beautiful sandy surprise along the way!

You’ll feel especially close to nature crossing the rustic bridges over the water onto further adventures. The lilies are at their best in June however it’s a beautiful walk all year round.

There’s plenty of amazing wildlife to spot! From dragonflies to kingfishers, otters and even herons!

Heron Broad Haven South
The ponds were part of the wealthy Cawdor families landscaping project in Georgian and Victorian times to enhance the surroundings of their elegant baronial mansion.

Part of the walk opens onto picturesque Broad Haven South beach, a stunning sandy surprise.

Carew Millpond

Carew Castle
This mile long loop is an easy and very scenic stroll.  

On your journey you will pass the only restored Tidal Mill in Wales, a medieval bridge, an 11th century Celtic cross and a lovely picnic area.

There are some fantastic views over the Millpond of Carew Castle. Built in 1270, its walls are brimming with history, myths and legends.

The path is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, so the whole family can enjoy a walk together.
