• Pembrokeshire Coast Path

    "No2 Coastal Destination - National Geographic 2010


St Dogmaels is the perfect location to explore the spectacular and varied coastline of Cardigan Bay and the world famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path. For those interested in ancient history there are even more wonderful walks inland into the Preseli mountains and the home of the Stonehenge Bluestones.You can base yourself at St Dogmaels for the north section of the Pembrokshire Coastal Path, or the south section of the Ceredigion Coastal Path. There are some lovely walks around the village, either along the Teifi estuary, exploring the medieval Abby ruins and working watermill or up climbing up into the local woodland, hills and fields along ancient pilgrims paths. 

We are very proud to be named No2 in the Guardian Top 5 Places to Stay in Wales for Walkers.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

From St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, the trail covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.

In its entirety the Coast Path represents a formidable physical challenge - its 35,000 feet of ascent and descent is said to be equivalent to climbing Everest — yet it can also be enjoyed in shorter sections. If you are walking the coast path to or from St Dogmaels to Newport, we strongly recommend you break this section into 2 days of walking , with the split at Ceibwr Bay in order to enjoy it more.

We have maps for the Coastal path as well as a variety of other local walks up the coast or in the Preseli's if you wish to borrow them.

PCP is Britain's only coastal national park, the path covers 186 miles of the most breathtaking scenery in Britain.

Pwyll y Wrach and Ceibwr Bay

One of our favourite spots in Pwyll Y Wrach or Witches Cauldron (although the literal translation is Witch's Cauldron), a collapsed sea cave steeped in ancient myths and legends near to the village of Moylegrove. Only a 15 minute drive and 20 minute walk from Ceibwr Bay or 4 hour coastal walk from Oriel Milgi and bus or Taxi back, alternatively a 7 hour round trip coming inland past Moylegrove and down the ravine back into St Dogmaels. We have a map that Anne has drawn created by St Dogmaels Footpaths Group and can talk you through this route.

Stunning scenery, picturesque villages and a wealth of wildlife - including the highest numbers of dolphin sightings in the UK - make Ceredigion a perfect place for a weeks coastal walking. The 60 mile / 96km long trail is described here in sections that also offer a selection of short walks, while the walk downloads section details circular walks which extend inland. Discover the area's rich history, from iron-age hill forts to medieval fish traps to 19th century harbours.

The Golden Road

This is an astonishingly, otherworldly walk through the Preseli Hills on the Neolithic Golden Road an ancient track and trade route between Wessex and Ireland ( bringing gold from the Wicklow Hills) and where the Bluestones in Stonehenge originated. A stunning walk in a truly magical landscape, littered with magaliths and prehistoric earthworks, including  Bedd Arthur, or Arthur's Grave. the Preseli Hills are only 10-20 minute drive from Oriel Milgi.
