Top Customer Reviews
The book includes 28 walks of varying difficulty starting with an easy 2 mile route around Carew Castle followed by a similarly easy 2 mile walk in Manorbier which also includes a section of the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path with rugged, scenic views throughout its length. As the book progresses, the routes become longer and a little more challenging through the last featured walk along the Preseli Range which, with its exposed hillsides and climbs, couldn't be more different to the early routes. However, the 'At a Glance' summary of each walk at the beginning of the book summarises the distance, time and height gain along each route so there will be no suprises (or shocks) along the way.
All of the routes are clearly defined with clear directions, illustrated maps and enticing photography to both ensure walkers are able to follow routes easily but are also inspired to tackle each route to see the features of each, whether a remote lighthouse, craggy coastline or stunning view, there is something for everyone with these routes along with interesting facts about the area along the way.
For anyone either lucky enough to live in the Pembrokeshire/Carmarthen area or just visiting to enjoy it for a short while, this is an excellent book to help you enjoy some of the best the area has to offer and it is suited to all levels of ability from a gentle afternoon stroll to a full day's coastal path or more challenging walk for the more active walker.
A highly recommended book for all.
There are easy to follow point by point instructions and great maps to ensure you don't get lost.
As keen walkers we have found certain guides a little vague in their directions but this book was spot on and we will certainly return to the area to do more of the walks listed. It is a beautiful area to explore and this guide certainly does it justice.
Great price on Amazon too, highly recommend it.
After providing all the essential information on key labels the book then goes on to look at the summary of each of the 28 circular walks and these cover specific hand picked locations that differ in size, geographical location, popularity. These cover city's, towns, forests, beaches, castles and waterfalls to name but a few.
Sent for review the book then goes on to introduce you to the Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire county's and although it's very difficult to summary such a large area in 4 pages the author does a first class job of it.
Each route varies in length from about 3 miles to 10 miles and provides specific information on height gain, estimated time, route terrain, GPS waypoints and more. Each of the 28 sections of the book are between 2-4 pages long and fully prepare you for the walk ahead. It provides an accurate introduction to each walk before exploring the area in more depth as you progress with the walk. It provides very useful and informative information on the key areas to look out for and provides early warnings for events and dangers such as tides and cliff drops.
As an avid hiker I know that the most important part of any route guide is the maps themselves and these are with the best that I have seen. The maps are appropriately sized and each circular route is highlighted in yellow with red arrows pointing you to the correct directions.Read more ›
