Walking around Wales

Coast path in CeredigionAs a new YHA member I was looking at the location of Youth Hostels last night and dreaming about the idea of walking around the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path stopping off at the Youth Hostels on the way. I’m not sure if it is possible yet to do this, but I’ve always wanted to walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and maybe when Morgan is a little older we’ll do it.

However, Pembrokeshire is just a start, according the CCW work has started on a 6 year project that will eventually lead to an all-Wales coastal path. Walkers will be able go all around the Welsh coastline on a continuous path by 2012, says the Countryside Council for Wales.

Sixty per cent of the coastline is already accessible, but the plan is to create new sections of path and upgrade others to improve access to horse riders and cyclists as well as walkers. Now that gives me some ideas!

    Hi Alan,

    I have just finished our blog all about walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in July last year. pembrokeshirecoastpath.blogspot.com

    By the way, you’ve made a spelling error in the first paragraph – the area isn’t really all that bad 🙂 I only spotted it because I’ve typed the same so many times!

    The long-running saga of the Ceredigion coastal path at Gwbert has finally come to an end after a high court judge turned down an objection by a tourist operator against the path running through part of his land.
