  • The ten walks featured here highlight the very best Welsh lighthouses and huge variety of the coastline of Wales. From vast expanses of sand, sea and sky, such as at Whiteford Point and Llanddwyn Island, to rugged coastline where seabirds wheel and skrike and porpoise and seals slide through the waves, like Strumble Head and South Stack, these walks to lighthouses guarantee a fine day out. All are circular, and vary from short and easy, like the to Talacre lighthouse, to longer and more demanding, such as that to St. Ann’s Head lighthouse — but none are beyond any reasonably fit and enthusiastic walker.
  • One of seven Official Guides to the Wales Coast Path The Snowdonia & Ceredigion coast offers a tremendous variety of landscape to those who walk its entire 132 miles/213 kilometres: from high, airy cliff-tops to secluded coves; from estuarine salt marshes to beaches backed by tremendous dune system that stretch on for miles. And with that diversity comes a huge range of wildlife, including seabirds, choughs, dolphins and rare wildflowers. The history too changes with every twist and turn of this fascinating route: visitors should always be prepared for the unexpected in a region that contains the ruins of once mighty castles and has links with characters as disparate as King Arthur and members of the rock band Led Zeppelin.
  • Pembrokeshire’s Café Culture is booming and it’s not the big chains leading the way. Gone are the steamy fugs, greasy-spoon menus and chipped mugs; instead, there’s no shortage of bright and friendly venues serving speciality coffees and teas, home-made baking, and wonderful snacks and meals that capitalise on the best of local produce and culinary talent. Very often there’re take-away options too and sometimes interesting wines or Welsh-brewed beers and ciders. Many are open all day from breakfast and morning coffee to afternoon tea, with some venues running into the evening too with live music, poetry or storytelling. They’re great places to rest or meet up with friends, too; so go for a walk and see what you can find — you’ll not be disappointed.
  • This attractive and good looking book will take you on ten short circular walks to some of the finest and most iconic pubs and inns in Pembrokeshire, in South Wales. Ever since rambling became a recognised pastime, country pubs have been magnets for walkers. Whether a lunchtime stop along the way or a final destination for the day, the promise of a thirst-quenching pint, bar snack or a hearty meal is for many, an integral part of the day. Many of Pembrokeshire's coastal inns have origins in serving seafarers, while those inland lay beside routes to and from the coast or beside old droves along which livestock were herded to market. Today, all have a fine tradition of serving visitors who come for no other purpose than to enjoy the magnificent countryside. Those chosen here have long established reputations for their food or ale and have an individual quirkiness worth seeking out.

  • Product Description One of nine books in the new Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path series. The past two centuries have wrought more change on South Wales than any other section of the country’s coast. Until the end of the 18th century, Swansea, Barry and even Cardiff were just small ports, though their ships traded far and wide. The industry of iron and coal changed things forever but most of the coast and its immediate hinterland were left unspoiled and elsewhere, nature has reclaimed some of what was taken. The coast is one of extreme contrasts, ranging from great dune systems through sheer cliffs to miles of coastal saltmarsh. Nowhere is far from a delightful stretch overlooking the sea, with fine views, nature and heritage all around.
  • The Lakeland Fells have some of the finest ridge walks in the country. Exploring these ridges offers fell walking at its most satisfying — staying high, taking in several summits and enjoying the spectacular settings. Many of the Lake District’s ridge walks have become classics, like the grassy edges of the Fairfield and Kentmere Horseshoes, or rocky aretes of Striding Edge and Swirral Edge and the aptly named Sharp Edge of Blencathra.
