British Coastal Road Trip

Day 03 – Pembroke to Cardigan

Off on our third day of travel.  We will cover about 130 miles of coastal roads today.  A grey sky, but we’ll bring some sunshine.

St Brides

Coastal Road Trip, St Brides
Julian stayed here at St Brides with his family 10 years ago, so was keen to visit again.

 

Little Haven

Coastal Road Trip, Little Haven
The cute little village of Little Haven, with 30min free parking, just enough time to do a mini tour.

And the view west from the top of the short cliff path walk above Little Haven.  Lush grass clinging to the rocky cliffs.

 

Welsh Roads

Coastal Road Trip, Windy Welsh Roads
We thought this Pembroke single track road was funny, double yellow lines on both sides, no chance to pass someone never mind parking!

 

Newgale

Coastal Road Trip, Newgale Beach
The tidy, wide and flat sands of Newgale Beach.

 

Solva

St Davids

Coastal Road Trip, St Davids
St Davids Cathedral in Britain’s smallest city.  Really impressive, except for the coffee in the Cathedral Cafe, too hot!

Pwll Mawr

Coast Road Trip, Pwll Mawr
We took the wrong turn looking for Strumble Head, and ended up with this amazing view west from Pwll Mawr.

 

Strumble Head

Coastal Road Trip, Strumble Head Lighthouse
Getting addicted to lighthouses now… took 100 pics of Stumble Head Lighthouse in the fresh and bright late afternoon sunshine.

And again stunning views west along the Pembrokeshire coast from Strumble Head.

  1. Did you see any seals on your trip ? (we saw some near St Davids!)
    Pwll Mawr looks rather awe-inspiring

    1. Not this day, but we did in Scotland on Day 20 at Gairloch Harbour (check the end of our daily video). Yes, Pwll Mawr was stunning!
