Dogs in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is 186 miles long which will tire both you and your dog!The views are stunning and you can take a well deserved rest whilst dolphin or porpoise watching.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority are fitting dog gates to many new and replacement stiles and have decreased the number of stiles from 530 down to 108 with 40 of these having dog gates.. These are still designed to exclude lambs so you may struggle with a larger dog.

Dogs should really be kept on a lead due to the closeness of the cliff edge in some places. There will be wildlife as well as farm animals grazing.

The Coastal Park was created in 1952 and is protected by law from any damaging change. There are over 200 circular walks to suit your needs, all with stunning scenery as well as some great cycling routes for everyone. Climbing is a popular activity too.
