St Brides Castle

Pembrokeshire, Wales

Martin's Haven walking and hiking route

Start/Car Parking - National Trust car park at Martin's Haven, grid reference 761090. From St. Bride's drive through Marloes village and continue to the end of the road.

Lengths of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path beyond Marloes are linked by a cross country route to provide an excellent circuit, first rate underfoot and with minimal stiles.

Martin's Haven is the embarkation point for boat trips to Skomer; there is a small exhibition centre and public toilets behind the cove, and an important inscribed stone. Beyond St Martin's, the 'Deer Park', almost an island, extends towards Skomer, providing the best mainland viewpoint for that island. There have never been deer on this headland, but the substantial boundary wall is evidence of the intentions of the then landowner. The deer park has footpaths to Wooltack Point and circling the headland; a circuit can readily be added to the route set out below.

The views enjoyed on this walk include lovely coastal scenery, including the islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Gateholm.


Walk Instructions

Start through the little gate at the bottom left corner of the car park, along a track on the right edge of a field.

1) Go through another gate to join the coast path, turning left. The fine coastal scenery includes Skomer and Skokholm. Continue on the fine path just inland of the top of the cliffs for approximately one mile.

2) At a signpost fork left, through two gates, to follow a fenced track. Go through another gate and cross a ditch before turning left at another signpost to keep to the left edge of a field. After the next signpost there is a gate and the start of an unsurfaced lane. Along the lane, look out for a bird hide to the left, overlooking a pool. Pass a 'car park' signpost and the youth hostel before joining the public road by the entrance to the National Trust Marloes Sands car park.

3) Turn left to walk through the car park, continuing along a broad track at the far end to reach the Martin's Haven access road. Turn left to walk by the roadside for just over a half mile, passing Trehill Farm.

4) Turn right to leave the road at a signpost, go through the gate. Walk along the left edge of the field towards the sea. There is a gate and a left/right/left manoeuvre before the coast path is reached.

5) Turn left to follow the path above the cliffs and coves back to Martin's Haven, reached down a long flight of rough steps. Turn left to ascend the road back to the car park.
