Walking & Beaches
The coastal path is world renowned for its beauty; great walking trails, wooded dells and miles of empty sandy beaches. St. Brides Bay isn’t far and is the perfect spot to start a walking adventure. Newgale beach is 15 minutes away- a haven for surfers and walkers alike, its picturesque, mile-long sands are refreshing come rain or shine. Ask us for our favourite spots, or go an explore and tell us yours- and don’t forget to keep an eye out for our resident superpod of porpoises! Be aware that during May- September some beaches have dog restrictions, but the coastal path is dog friendly year-round.
The great outdoors activity company TYF is just up the coast, and is the first carbon neutral outdoor adventure company. They invented coasteering (jumping in to the sea from varying heights on cliffs- love it!) and have been leading groups for over 30 years in this area, so if you’re wanting high adrenaline fun, a surf /kayak/ climbing lesson or to rent bikes and equipment yourself, they’re the ones to call. Horse Riding is always popular, and a great way to see some more of the landscape around us. From trekking up hills to riding through the surf there are stables at Nolton that accommodate for most abilities. Zorbing– basically rolling down a hill in a giant bubble, Zorbing is lots of fun! We’re lucky enough to have a company on our doorstep who have just extended their grass track- well worth a trip!
