United Kingdom

Quaint, peculiar, funny: the United Kingdom… our "Wahlheimat".

We actually like it here: the weather (and the food) are not quite as bad as the natives (and the French) make you believe.

South Pembrokeshire

 

(vero;2019-April-26)

We spent a week in the area in April 2019 with the aim of hiking a part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and based ourselves in Sageston, a small village in walking distance of Carew Castle, and central enough to reach easily and quickly the starting points of our walks. We walked a bit of the coast path every day, covering the distance between Saundersfoot and Angle twice, in both directions, as we always had to go back to our car at the end of the day. We were lucky with the weather and were also glad to be able to explore the portion of path located within the Castle Martin Firing Range: it is usually open at week-ends but often closed during the week; in our case, it was open only at the week-end and the weather was fine on those two specific days, it could not have been better. We had time enough on the way to visit Tenby, Manorbier, Bosherton and the Stackpole estate, it was all in all a perfect week although we were far too early in the season and did not see the lily ponds of Bosherton in bloom. To help you plan your walks, you can check this website for the firing schedule of the Castle Martin Firing Range.

Colourful cliffs not far away from Freshwater East (coming from the west). There has been some kind of fortification in Carew since the iron age, but the medieval fortress was built in the middle of the 12th century. The medieval fortress of Carew was transformed into an Elizabethan manor by <a target="_blank"  href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Perrot">Sir John Perrot</a> (1530-1592) and boasts huge elegant windows overlooking the Millpond. Saint Govan's Chapel. Bullslaughter Bay. Cliffs between Bullslaughter Bay and Elegug Stacks. Elegug Stacks colonised by thousands of guillemots.
