The Welsh Coast Path - officially known as "Wales Coast Path"

The Wales Coast Path is the longest walking route in the UK, and currently is little walked. Read on for your opportunity to help change all that!

 

Information on The Welsh Coast Path

The Welsh Coast Path is about 870 miles long and although it is the longest hiking path in Britain, it is not yet a designated National Trail. This is almost certainly  because the Welsh Coast Path was only officially opened in March 2012 and any hiking trail of such length will inevitably need much time to flourish and develop such services which hikers need. Of all the necessary services short break friendly accommodation must be the most pressing concern, and although the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (which forms a 186 mile stretch of Wales Coast Path) is well catered for in this area, much of the remaining Welsh Coast Path certainly isn't.


In fact it is difficult to find set daily hiking itineraries for much of the Welsh Coast Path and this is because - at the time of writing - many are yet to be written. Because of that we at Lt have took the plunge and set daily walks based around the pre-existing standard walks. We looked at the hundreds of miles of blank and unwritten Wales Coast Path and broke it down into daily legs. We did so by trying to ensure some form of accommodation was available at the end of each daily leg, or at least where none seemed to exist, we made sure the end of the walk leaves you in a sensible place to book a pick up and drop off service.

Remember, although what follows is the result of many tens of hours of work and research, inevitably when you actually walk the entire Welsh Coast Path there may be some flaws exposed in our list. If you do walk it and find fault with our information, please do tell us so we may update as necessary and then future walkers will benefit from the pioneering experience of those walkers who hath gone before!

Stretch 1 of The Welsh Coast Path

Note 1: Some walkers start the Welsh Coast Path at Shotton, some at Flint and some before or in between. We have not seen the start point accurately defined as yet, but will let you know as soon as it becomes known.

Note 2.   We hope to be covering the Welsh Coast up to Bangor in the future, however we regret we will not be doing transfers there this year (2015)
