Today marks the 10th anniversary of the Wales Coast Path since its official opening in 2012. Penblwydd hapus! - The path is one of a few continuous walking routes along a country’s coastline in the world. This makes 2022 even more of a special year than ever, to explore the 870 miles of coast path.
A short walk through the woodland links Timber Hill to Wales coast path. Timber Hill has been passed down the family through three generations. We simply love it here and are proud we have a space to allow others to also make lasting memories and to fall in love with all the beautiful spots our coastline has to offer. Research by RamblersUk, shows that 89% of people find that walking amongst nature helps them to unwind and relax - improving health, wellbeing and feelings of positivity. No matter what time of year, the coastpath can be enjoyed at any time, just be sure to bring suitable clothing ready for all types of weather.
"Since its official opening in 2012, the Wales Coast Path has established itself as a beacon of Wales’s natural beauty. And, during its tenth year, we’re inviting everybody to join us in celebrating everything that the Path has to offer, not just for people living in Wales, but all over the world”.
EVE NICHOLSON, WALES COAST PATH
If you were to venture between St Dogmaels in the north of the county down to Amroth, you will be uncovering 186 miles/299km of our older coastline. The whole path is available to walkers, with some sections suitable for cyclists, families with pushchairs, people with limited mobility, and horse riders. Depending on how much of a raring hiker you are, it would take 10-15 days. Understandably this is a long way for most, which is why Wales Coast Path have teamed up with Cadw, to offer a series of 20 walking itineraries to discover Welsh heritage along the iconic path. This gives people of all abilities and ages to get involved and best admire the breathtaking scenery, including; 16 Welsh castles, hill forts, stone circles and burial chambers, a long with a map to guide you on your way.
Alternatively there are well sign posted smaller routes that you can take the time to enjoy during your stay. Look out for the signs with the distinctive blue and yellow logo of a shell with a dragon tail. A red version of the sign shows an alternative route of the official path like a high tide option. If walking isn’t for you but you don’t want to feel like you’re missing out, the coastal bus covers a great expanse of the route.
