Today was the first day of a short walking holiday on the Pembrokeshire coast. After a long journey from the north of England we arrived at our base in Little Haven late in the afternoon. We hadn’t planned a walk today, but it was a sunny afternoon and a good opportunity for a short walk to explore our new surroundings

Little Haven is a picturesque village, which was once a fishing community and still has a seafaring feel to it. We were staying in a small cottage on the outskirts of the village which is close to the long distance Pembrokeshire Coast Path. We started the walk from the doorstep, but anyone following this walk could start from Little Haven just as conveniently

After following Strawberry Hill lane uphill for a short distance we turned off to join the coast path, heading north east towards Little Haven. There were some wonderful views along the rugged coast on this section of the walk. The path gradually descended into the village, and after a short meander around the attractive streets we headed inland

We followed a path through the fields, gradually climbing uphill with ever improving views back over Little Haven and the Atlantic Ocean. On reaching a narrow country lane we turned left and followed it through the small settlement of Woodlands. The path descended through woodland back towards the start, and on reaching Strawberry Hill we climbed back up to our holiday cottage. It was a very enjoyable stroll and a good introduction to what is a new walking area for us
