Pembrokeshire Coast Path Pembroke to Milford Haven

By Yvonne Buckingham Pembroke Castle

Last year, 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.

With 118 miles to go we caught up with Yvonne to talk about the latest part of her adventure, Pembroke to Milford Haven.

Well the next part of our coastal path walk, started from where we left off in Pembroke and headed to Milford Haven. We started our 12 mile walk raring to go, with 68 miles under our belt and 118 miles to go!

I must admit the thought of this part of the walk didn't inspire me as much to start as the other coastal walks had, as I thought it was going to be mainly road walking, however once we got going it was fantastic.

We left Pembroke Castle behind us and walked parallel to the length of it as we headed out of the town through a wooded path. We passed goats, sheep and cows on this walk and through the bluebell paths we even found time for a game of hide and seek!

The Woods 

We carried on through the town of Pembroke passing the old naval docks and headed towards the Cleddau Bridge. We walked across the estuary and took in the view of Pembroke, Neyland and beyond; looking back at how far we had come.

Estuary

We stopped for lunch on Neyland Marina and then continued on. Neyland is a small town on the northern shore of the Milford Haven Estuary east of Milford Haven and the town grew up around the railway.

We carried on from here walking alongside the estuary, through some lovely quaint little villages; and then arrived in Milford Haven on the Rath where the sun was shining.

From the Rath we could see where we had walked from previously across the estuary as in sight was one of the extensive oil refineries that form a vital part of the local economy.

We also spotted on the footpath a bronze statue of a fisherman, celebrating Milford Haven's on-going fishing industry.

Another excellent walk to clear the cobwebs. Next time its Milford Haven to Dale, I have a feeling that we will need to watch the tides on that one!
