Whether you’re blowing away the cobwebs from a Saturday night out or walking off your roast dinner, these Sunday walk ideas are guaranteed to fit the bill. What’s more, the routes incorporate many interesting features, are all close to fabulous eateries and are dog friendly too.

Minwear Woods
There are a few routes through these woods but one which weaves through the trees and offers fabulous views over the eastern Cleddau towards Slebech is particularly worth doing.

The car park to start the walk is a little further along from Blackpool Mill (if you go past it on your right) and is clearly marked. Signs from the car park point you in the right direction to start the walk which is 1 ½ miles long and takes about an hour. It really is a lovely walk to do in all seasons.
The route is classed as easy and is mainly level, so it’s a great one to do with children. There are also benches to enhance your enjoyment of the views and to give little legs a rest.

Lawrenny
The walk starts from the glorious Lawrenny Quay, offers estuary views and a chance to immerse yourself in an ancient oak woodland.
You’ll need to head through the boat yard (past the Quayside Café) to start the walk which is sign-posted from there. After the first gate you can simply follow the track which runs high above the water and gives views of the river bank opposite. Keep your eyes peeled for estuary birds en route. Once you get to Garron Pill you can either turn back or take a right at the road to the village. From the village, follow the footpath which starts from the road in front of the church or a left down the road back to the Quay.

The circular route is about 3 miles and is moderately difficult but provides an opportunity to see the West Williamston Nature Reserve salt marsh from a different angle.

Lawrenny village shop stocks essential supplies and is run by the community so has limited opening hours. There is also a multi-award winning café on the quayside (open seasonally) and a family friendly village pub on the waterfront.

Bosherston Lily Ponds
This walk provides bridge crossings across the ponds, a walk on the beach and of course, at the right time of year, beautiful lilies. In the winter months the pads can still be seen along with resident wildlife such as otter.

You can either start your walk from the car park located in the village of Bosherston or from Broad Haven South Beach car park. If you start from the Bosherston car park the route is circular, well-marked and you have the option of heading down to the beach. If you start from the beach car park take the steps down to the beach and follow the curve of the beach around to the left. You’ll come across a bridge which leads onto the main Bosherston Ponds loop.

There are public toilets located in both car parks, foot washing taps and a water bowl for dogs.
