Walking & Cycling
The 186 miles of Pembrokeshire coast path set within Britain’s only coastal National Park offers blue flag beaches and numerous points of natural beauty for some of the most breathtaking walking and cycling trips. As one of National Geographic’s ‘top rated world coastal destinations’, the area continues to attract walkers on a global level with options from family rambles and cycle paths ending at secluded picnic spots to more challenging treks and ascents through the Preseli Hills in the north of the county. Tretio Cottages are part of the Visit Wales Cyclist and Walkers Welcome Awards Scheme. This gives cyclist and walkers the confidence to know that they are booking quality accommodation to meet their needs.

The National Trust runs a varied events programme for Pembrokeshire visitors – visit their website for a list of Trust sites in the local area.
