Pembrokeshire Coast Path Freshwest to Angle

By Yvonne Buckingham Freshwest

In the autumn of 2016, Bluestone’s Head of Sales, Marketing and Guest Services, Yvonne Buckingham set herself the challenge of walking the entire length of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Yvonne has been documenting her adventure for the Bluestone blog and has so far walked from Amroth to Freshwater West and has covered 44 miles of the 186.

After a short break for the festive season, Yvonne is back with her latest walk which took her from Freshwater West to Angle.

Happy New Year! And so our adventure continues into 2017, next section completed – Freshwater West to Angle 8.5 miles. 44 miles now under our belt so only 142 to go!

We started our walk from Freshwater West to Angle anticipating changeable weather; however as we set off, the sun started peering through the clouds and we were blessed with beautiful blue skies and sunshine. The walk from Freshwater West to Angle was full of ‘ups and downs’ which meandered through dramatic landscapes and terrains; it was a challenge but so rewarding. We met some sheep, cows and even the obligatory babbling brook; however this time there were four!

Hill Winding Climb
We kept up the pace and pushed on to West Angle Bay, where the beach is quite narrow at high tide but at low tide it reveals a huge stretch of golden sand. The northern end of the beach has rocks that are perfect for climbing too.

We stopped here for our packed lunch and to refuel before heading on to the last stretch towards Angle. This section took us along the estuary where we passed by Thorne Island, Chapel Bay fort and the lifeboat station. From here we could even spot the Irish Ferries on their afternoon trip sailing alongside us; with the sound of smaller fishing boats enjoying the beautiful day on the water.

We headed on through woodland and across fields and then arrived at our destination in Angle. Finally passing by the Old Point House Inn which is part built with ship's timbers; we ended our section of the path at The Hibernian Inn in the village for a well earned refuel to celebrate another successful section of the path completed.

Sun and Clouds

With only 142 miles to go our next journey will take us from Angle to Pembroke as we start to make our way into the north of Pembrokeshire.
