A circular walk from Stackpole Quay in Pembrokeshire. This is a relatively easy but lovely, varied walk through Pembrokeshires Stackpole Estate, which provides for some spectacular cliff-top scenery, fabulous sandy beaches and a wander alongside the famous Bosherston Lily Ponds. The significant history of the Stackpole Estate began in the 1700s when the Campbell family inherited the estate through marriage. They built the Stackpole Court mansion (since demolished), the tiny Stackpole Quay harbour to provide for their love of sailing and, by damming three valleys, created the 100 acres of Bosherston Lakes. The lakes are more generally known as Bosherston Lily Ponds, on account of the water lilies which carpet the surface in early summer. There is also chance to visit the small village of Bosherston, which has a pleasant pub for refreshments and St Michael and All Angels church, with its unusual asymmetrical tower. The walk includes a few climbs and descents from the cliffs, with several relatively flat sections in between. It follows a mixture of coastal paths along cliff tops (so take particular care with children and dogs) plus inland paths alongside the lakes. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, simple gates, bridges and long flights of steps. There are several stretches where you may be sharing the cliffs with livestock. Dogs are welcome on the walk but will need to be on leads for large stretches of the route- follow local signage. Allow 3 hours.Show more

A very scenic walk. There are some steep parts between Tenby and Saundersfoot and a particularly steep set of stairs resembling the 700 steps of Highhrothgar so take it slow if you're carrying a backpack and watch your footing. There's a stream about halfway between Tenby and Saundersfoot so if you take a water filter you can re-fuel quite easily.Show more
