Newport to St. Dogmaels

Section 4

Lightouse on the North Pembrokeshire Coast Path

Cliffs, cliffs and cliffs! Exhilarating walking on the edge of the world, or that’s how it feels as the path climbs up, while beside me raucous seagulls wheel and cry. Far below the bark of seals nestled in tiny coves floats up on the breeze to meet me.

Two people sharing a double or twin en-suite room can expect to pay somewhere between £95 and £120 per person per night,  inclusive of luggage transfers.

Please be aware that these prices depend on accommodation chosen, time of year, etc. and are indicative only, based on customers walking with us between 2021 and 2023. For accurate pricing please request a quote.

Our prices include -

  • - Your choices of good quality en-suite B&B, Inn and small hotel accommodation with full breakfast (where available), together with upgrade options.

  • - Detailed walking route planning and ongoing support from specialist walking advisors from your enquiry through to the end of the walk

  • - Secure and reliable daily luggage transfers between accommodations

  • - The best available maps & guidebooks along with your own personal detailed route notes & itinerary posted to you whether you are based in the UK or overseas

Please see below for six factors which affect your quoted price - 

1 - The time of year you are walking -  The low season (outside of May to September) is generally cheaper than the peak months.

2 - How early you book. Cheaper accommodation tends to book out first so to get the best prices and choice of accommodation we recommend you book as early as you can. Bookings open for the season the previous summer.

3 - Which routes and areas you choose - Cornwall, South Devon and Dorset are the more expensive regions while Wales, Somerset, North Devon and Dartmoor tend to offer better prices. We also often run seasonal special offers on certain routes so ask if these would be of interest.

4 - Type of accommodation  -  You can choose to upgrade to luxury hotels or downgrade to basic B&B's and we will try to match your walk to your budget. Quotes will show standard options and the costs for any upgrades so you can pick and choose to suit your plans.

5 - The number of walkers - rates are generally based on 2 walkers -  the more walkers the cheaper prices get as we split the costs of providing the walk between the group.

6 - Luggage Transfers - our quotes include two prices - with and without luggage transfers so if you want to keep the costs down you can choose to carry your own luggage to avoid those charges.

If you want to try to get the lowest prices let us know your budget - we can advise honestly and openly what is possible - we don't want to see anyone unable to walk the routes due to costs.


To request a quote costs nothing and there is no commitment to book - so do try us! We usually have quotes emailed back to you within a few days and these documents are very detailed with accommodation choices, website links to the accommodations, route descriptions, daily walking grade and mileage, travel info to the trail and of course a guaranteed price to consider.  All for the specific walk YOU want.

Reviews & Feedback


The crescendo at the end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, this is wild, wild and wilder walking as you head north around a series of high volcanic headlands sitting above almost inaccessible coves and inlets. A run of tiny coastal hamlets clinging to this boulder strewn cliff run is broken up by the welcome facilities and shelter of two historically significant towns at Newport and Fishguard  Then a final push around one of the most remote sections of the Wales Coast Path at Cemaes Head to emerge into the golden sands and shelter of the beautiful Teifi Estuary and a return to habitation at St Dogmaels and...
