Nearby AttractionsGreenhills Country Hotel sits on the edge of Britain's only coastal National Park which offers some of the most beautiful and spectacular walking experiences in Europe.
We specialise in catering for walking holidays, especially if you are coming here in a group - although a 'group' of 2 or 4 people is also good with us! We will be pleased to welcome groups up to 50 people who can enjoy both the great walking and our excellent bed & breakfast accommodation, with or without dinner. You can also relax in our swimming pool, sauna or solarium - or enjoy a drink in our comfortable bar - after an exhilarating day out and about on our trails and walks.
There are, in fact, four totally different types of walking experience for you to choose from - the internationally famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path; along the stunning Daugleddau Estuary; inland up and around the magical and mysterious Preseli Hills - reputed home of Merlin!; and circular walks centred on the hotel specially created by us for you to explore the local wealth of history and beauty.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path offers 186 miles (300km) of superb and varied walking that stretches from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south - and we are only a couple of miles from it! The enjoyment of this celebrated trail is enhanced by the use of the coastal buses - The Coastal Cruiser and The Puffin Shuttle - both of which allow you to be returned to your start point from along the coast.
The Daugleddau Estuary is known by locals as 'The Secret Waterway' which stretches from Carew to Slebech. Here you will pass Norman castles at Carew and Picton, mills at Blackpool (no relation!) and next to Carew Castle, as well as secluded gems such as Cresswell Quay and Lawrenny. There are longer walks that run down the eastern bank of the Daugleddau and explore the Landsker Line - the traditional imaginary line the separates South Pembrokeshire (the 'Little England beyond Wales'!) and the Welsh speaking North Pembrokeshire.
The Preseli Hills are famed as the source of 'The Blue Stones' that make up Stonehenge - but how did they get them there? There are many footpaths and bridleways that traverse this magnificent countryside through pastoral farmland and over rugged peaks. The mystery of the Preselis can be tangibly felt with its strong Celtic past visible by way of the many Standing Stones and Cromlechs that abound with legends of Merlin and Celtic Druids roaming these hills.
However, for the less adventurous, there are still wonderful lanes and tracks to explore closer to the hotel which we have identified for you. St Florence is a picturesque hamlet dating back to Norman times. It straddles the Ritec River with many interesting sites - one feature is known as the Flemish Chimney - the last surviving example of its kind in the area. It also has an interesting 13th century church.
"The village forms one of the most cheerful and interesting objects in the delightful ride from Tenby to Pembroke. Many of the cottages, which are grouped in pleasing clusters around the church, are of ancient appearance" (from A Topographical Dictionary of Wales - S. Lewis, 1833)
All these walks are easily accessible from our hotel and we specialise in catering for such walking holidays. You will be provided with a 'Welcome Pack' on arrival with more details of the various walks and we also provide a 'drying room' and boot cleaning facilities.
We will be pleased to provide you with packed lunches (by arrangement) and transfers for groups (by arrangement).
