Broad Haven Walk

Walk Details
The Pembrokeshire Coast offers some beautiful walks and this is just one of them that takes us through a wooded valley and along part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. It’s a relatively easy walk with no steep or prolonged ascents. Depending on the weather – there may be muddy parts of the path so go prepared!

We start our walk from the car park at the northern end of Broad Haven.

In the top left corner of the car park you’ll find a signpost pointing the way along a path between the main Youth Hostel on the left and the Youth Hostel lab on the right. We continue along this path, passing the coastguard rescue station and then bear left when we see another signpost.

This path takes us past a static caravan site. We go through a metal gate and take a left (before the bridge), through a kissing gate and continue onwards with the stream to our left. We continue onwards, following the wooded valley, using the footbridge to cross the stream and then head steadily up the valley side. This is a beautiful woodland with a range of deciduous trees and abundant wild flowers (look out for the primroses and bluebells in the spring). This is where we may encounter some mud – so watch your step as we go!

We’ll see a signpost near the valley head pointing to the left, but we ignore this and continue along the main path until we pass Timber Hill Holiday Chalets on our right. We come to a T junction, just before Haroldston West Church, we turn left, going past a gate post and joining a minor road. We turn right, passing a road junction and continue along the roadside for less than half a mile until we reach the next junction.

We’re taking a left, for Druidston Haven, along a cycle route that follows an even more minor road. It’s here that we get some amazing views out over St Brides Bay. There’s a sharp right bend that takes us to a car park, with a “Haroldston Chin” sign. Here we turn left, through a gate and take a tarmac surfaced footpath in the direction of the sea. We soon join the coast path on the left. Along this part of the route you’ll see benches where you will want to pause and admire the view. If you’re in need of some refreshments – keep straight on the road for Druidston Hotel and then rejoin the coast path to walk back.

We’re going to take a left, along the tarmac path for a few hundred metres, following the path with occasional gates and possibly a grazing horse or two along the way. At a signposted junction we continue along the coast path, soon reaching the outskirts of Broad Haven. From here it’s a prolonged but well graded descent. We join the road, cross the bridge and turn left into the carpark where we started.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
