 The highest point in Pembrokeshire 

The Preseli make up the highest points in Pembrokeshire and rise to 536m. Stroll across the 8 mile “Golden Road” track that meanders along the spine of the hills and is said to date back to Neolithic times some 5000 years ago.

 

Travellers would toil along this stretch on their way from Ireland to the East of the country. The rugged landscape is very different to the softer south of the county and is an ideal location for some superb hiking taking in the 360 panoramic views.

 

The hills form part of the Pembrokeshire National Park and contain some rare species of plants and flowers. They are an excellent contrast to the coastal walking that is also easily accessible by car from the cottage.

From Danclawdd you can walk from the front door, keep walking and be onto the Preseli Hills within a few minutes. Then you are free to strike out across one of the numerous routes that circle and climb around their beauty.
