Little Haven and St Bride's walking and hiking route

Start/Car Parking - Take 'The Puffin' bus to Little Haven

This route uses 'The Puffin' coastal bus service from the Castle to Little Haven for the outward journey. The return walk is exhilarating, along a fine stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, weaving its way in and out around the numerous coves, up and down over the intervening headlands, all first-rate underfoot and without navigational problems. There are no stiles.

Little Haven is a pretty settlement clinging to steep ground behind an attractive cove with sand/shingle beach. There are no less than three inns, café and coffee shop (with post office!) and boat-launching facilities.

St Bride's Haven, close to the castle, is another good little sandy beach, with former lime kiln, public toilets, a former pump house and isolated church.


Walk Instructions

In Little Haven start along Point Road beside the coffee shop, rising at once to pass the Swan Inn. There is a 'coast path' sign. There are plenty of seats from which to admire the views of the Haven on this rise to the Point.

1) Fifty metres before the Point, turn left at a waymarked post; the distant north coast of St. Bride's Bay is just in view. Nearer at hand some of the inlets of the west-facing coast such as Broad Haven and Druidstone Haven can be seen. Go up a flight of steps and through a gate to continue rising along a good grass path, passing a waymark on a post and a gate before reaching a road, with a seat at a splendid viewpoint. Continue along the path before actually joining the road, by a signpost.

2) Turn right to walk by the roadside for about 200m. with static caravans to the left. Leave the road through a waymarked gate on the right. An unusual wooded section of the coast path makes a welcome variation. Initially many of the trees are stunted but there is bird life and abundant wild flowers, including carpets of bluebells in Spring. At a fork with a warning notice keep left, rising. There are occasional gates along the way as the path continues. Before the descent to Mill Haven there is a rock on the left with an inscribed stone.

3) Mill Haven has a pebble beach cradled by cliffs of old red sandstone and the remains of a few old stone structures. The Stack Rocks are offshore, close to the Haven. Cross the stream on the substantial bridge and rise steeply up the far side. Pass a modern 'hole in the stone' sculpture. Cross another little stream on a bridge; St Bride's Castle is soon in view. Pass a gate, waymarks on posts and a large pond, then more gates before descending past cottages to St. Bride's Haven.

4) The path keeps to the left of the beach, across rocks and shingle, to a few steps then a grass track to the car park. Go through the churchyard and along a narrow tarmac path to the bottom of the St. Bride's Castle drive. Turn right to return to the castle.
