St Brides Castle

Pembrokeshire, Wales

Mill Haven walking and hiking route

Start/Car Parking - St Bride's Castle

An excellent length of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path leads from St. Bride's Haven, adjacent to the Castle, to Mill Haven. The inland return route is on good tracks via Lower Broadmoor Farm, finishing by walking along the side of the St. Bride's Castle access road (approximately one mile) and the Castle driveway. If walking along the road does not appeal, the alternative is an out and back walk to Mill Haven. The coastal scenery is very fine, including the north coast of St. Bride's Bay with Ramsey Island on a clear day.


Walk Instructions

Leave the Castle garden and go down the access drive.

At the bottom, immediately before the cattle grid, turn left towards the church; there is a signpost. Cross the churchyard, through gates, pass through the car parking area behind St. Bride's Haven to a coast path signpost and continue along a track which leads to the beach, with a lime kiln to the left. Go down a few steps and keep to the right edge of the rock and shingle, crossing a little stream. Pass Cliff Cottage on its seaward side, rising to a gate.

Follow the unmistakeable coast path above several bays, enjoying the views. There are occasional gates and a stream is crossed on a bridge.

Spring flowers include gorse, primroses, sea campion and thrift. The impressive rocks just off shore are the Stack Rocks. Pass a sculpture of a stone with a hole in it, beside the path before descending to Mill Haven.

There are the remains of stone structures, including a lime kiln, but no apparent evidence of a former mill.

Cross the stream on the substantial wooden bridge with handrails. At a signpost immediately above the lime kiln turn right, through a gate, to follow a track rising inland, between the gorse.

Pass a signpost and go over an ancient stone stile to follow a lane leading to Lower Broadmoor Farm; there is a pond below, right. Pass between the farm buildings to reach the farm access road; there is a footpath sign by the wall on the left.

In about 400m. there are huge agricultural buildings to the left and a house on the right. Just beyond the house turn right, at a signpost, to follow a broad track, descending initially with woodland on the right. This track soon joins the road to St. Bride's Castle at another farm building, continue straight ahead.

Bear left at a juncton by the telephone box. Shortly afterwards turn right into the entrance to St Brides Castle. Walk through the attractive woodland, passing the former ice house on the left before crossing the cattle grid to return to the Castle.
