5 Reasons Why This Holiday Could Be Perfect For You – Read More

Join us for a wonderful few days of walking and glamping / camping in this stunning area of Pembrokeshire. This really is a hidden gem and we are very excited to have discovered it! Our walking holiday will explore the rugged coastline to the north near Cardigan Bay, the vast open moorland of the Preseli Hills and the tranquillity of nearby woodland and country lanes. There is certainly plenty of variety and a host of trails to choose from.

On one day, we will set out to the coast for a spectacular walk which will include the Witches’ Cauldron, a breath-taking geological feature formed by a collapsed cave. The whole length of the coast in this area is a geological feast with clearly visible rock strata rising and falling in dramatic fashion. Our walk will descend from the clifftops to end at Poppit Sands, a gorgeous sandy bay voted in the top 10 beaches to visit in Wales.

On another day, we will walk the Preseli Hills, dotted with rocky outcrops and the occasional stone circle. We will follow the ancient Golden Road and explore its associations with King Arthur, Neolithic times and the gold trade. The walk has a remote feel to it with long distance views over the Pembrokeshire countryside towards Cardigan Bay and Snowdonia.

We will be staying at a remote, hill-top “Cool Camping” glamping / camping site where nature blends with comfort. If camping is your thing then bring your tent and sleeping gear – all food provided. Or are your camping days a thing of the past? Or perhaps you have never been one for camping. Either way, this holiday offers you the opportunity to reconnect with nature in the setting of this beautiful Welsh site staying in a very comfortable glamping tent. With crisp linen and plenty of cosy blankets you can retire to bed safe in the knowledge that there won’t be a foam mat in sight!

The holiday is full board, with the exception of 1 evening meal when we will head to a lovely local pub. A cooked breakfast and 2 course meal will be provided by our hosts and there will be a packed lunch each day to enjoy on our walk.

 

Walks are between 7 and 10 miles some  involving total ascents of around 500m /1650ft. There is a mixture of coastal walking on uneven paths, moorland walks and forest tracks. A good level of fitness is required. Learn more about our Walk Grades
