This book is more that just a book telling you how to navigate circular walks. There is a lot of information on the local history and various places of interest. Just as well really because it was often difficult to follow the directions. The map extracts were quite small and the OS map was required too. We got lost completely on the Kilgetty walk. It also involved trying to find the way through a farm and the farmer was not very friendly. The path was not signed very well even though it was supposed to be a main walking route. It made me wonder whether the signs had been tampered with. However, having managed to find our way through the farm we got lost further on. It involved crossing a stream (which my wife was not happy about!) and the next instruction was that it swept to the right so we turned right when coming across a track. It should have been left and that was the end of the planned walk because by the time we realised it had gone wrong we were miles away.

The book is better as reading material than the landranger book but was sometimes difficult to follow.

Excellent choice of walks let down by some vague instructions or lack of detail on where to park to start the walks!
As with other reviews for this book, I recommend using a separate OS map for clarity because the yellow outline used in maps sometimes obscures differences between paths (for walkers) and tracks (for walkers and other users).
Walk 1, circular Amroth walk, is a great start. The initial steep ascent is aided by steps but the coastal views are well worth it. There is a camp shop at Wisesmans Bridge that sells multi-flavoured ice creams. There is a pleasant walk along an old tramway line followed by typical countryside walking. The return to Amroth passes through Colby Woodland Gardens run by the NT. The tearoom here is a great place to stop for refreshments.
Walk 29 Kilgetty is a varied walk, woodland and countryside. We missed a style on the main road close to Folly Farm due to overgrown vegetation. We later found that there is a style there. In our case we walked passed Folly Farm walking on the road through Broom and re-joining the track at Thomas Chapel. Nice pub, Begelly Arms, at the end of the walk.
Walk 30, Canaston Wood, is a nice woodland walk, the instructions are vague in places but the path is pretty straightforward.
Walk 36 Cwm Gwaun is another lovely woodland walk. We took the B4313 from Fishguard following signs to Cwm Gwaun. The road from the B4113 is a fairly steep decline but it leads to a car park opposite a telephone box. The car park sits very close to Cilrhedyn Bridge but is called Allt Clun, not Cilrhedyn Car Park! You walk through a farmyard just after the bridge to start the walk.

As a keen walker and regular visitor to Pembrokeshire for the last 26 years, I was very keen to accept the invitation from Cicerone to review their range of walking guides, especially as I have previously written walk routes myself and know Pembrokeshire and its footpaths well.

The index lists each numbered route together with the starting point and distance and these are shown clearly on an area map dotted with icons marking the starting point making it easy to choose which area from which to start a walk and there's a good mix of both coastal and inland walks throughout the county. Following this is an introduction to Pembrokeshire, its Celtic history and past, wildlife and coastal path.

The walk routes each feature a short list of bullet points giving essential information for the walker including the start point, distance, approximate time to allow, any ascents and the height gain, OS maps covering the route, nearby parking, public transport, refreshment availability and the location of any public toilets, ie all essential basic information for any walker yet often missed from other guides.

Each route is accompanied by an overview of the natural history and heritage of each area, landmarks and general observations on the route eg 'the path can be muddy', 'floods at high tide but a bus service is available'.... A strength of this book is the photography with beautiful shots depicting the county's stunning rugged coastline and browsing through the guide is giving me very restless feet.

I'm familiar with about half the routes in the book having already followed sections of the routes without forming them into the themed circular routes the authors have devised.

This guide was very useful along with the accompanying maps. All walks are clearly described with lots of useful and interesting information to accompany them. A clear route in the form of a section of the relevant OS map accompanies each walk. Written by people who really know the area - highly recommended

This book is great. I recently worked part time in a tourist information centre in Pembrokeshire and regularly referred visitors to this book.

It has walks of varying length and in different parts of the county so you can see the diverse landscape. The book tells you where to start your walk and has a small map accompanied with descriptive text and points of interest.

Great for money-its like having a guide in your pocket!
