Bosherston Lily Ponds And St Govans-(4.4 Miles)

Bosherston Nature Reserve

Dogs should be kept under control so as not to cause disturbance to other people, wildlife or livestock. 

This scenic 4-mile route visits the remarkable St Govans Chapel, standing just above the golden beach at the bottom of 75 steps. You then enjoy grand views from St Govans Head before returning beside the hushed waters of Bosherston Lily Ponds.

This route enters the Castlemartin Firing Range area - and are therefore advised to ring 01646 662 367 after 16.30 the day before you visit to check access for your safety. Please ensure that you obey all notices displayed regarding the Castlemartin Firing Range.

Start: Parking is available in Bosherton National Trust Car Park.

Make a right turn from the car park and then take a left to walk through Bosherston village. Ignore a road which branches to the left, and continue straight ahead, to reach the car park by the Ministry Of Defence range entrance.
In leaving this car park, walk past the sign towards the sea, departing to the right to visit St Govans Chapel, which is situated at the bottom of 75 steps. After visiting the Chapel, return to the top of the numerous steps and veer right, to walk past the sea, appearing on you're right hand side, and pass through a gate to pursue the Coastal path. If you do have the time to spare, the beautiful scenery and views surrounding St Govans Head are well worth experiencing. Fantastic photo oppurtunitiesfor your album!
The Coast path continues through a gate, leading you to cross a stile, ultimately revealing steps descending to Broad Haven Beach and its glistening golden sands.
If you then walk across the back of Broad Haven beach, veering left to cross a surving footbridge, and continue straight ahead, neglecting a path to your left, to walk around the blue waters found at Stackpole Warren.
Cross another footbridge, turning left and continuing ahead, to cross yet another footbridge and continuing ahead as before. Finally you reach a third footbridge, which you cross to follow the path, which shall lead you back to the car park where you began.

You are also able to turn left at the beginning of the walk in stead of right, and simply stroll around the Bosherston Lily Ponds if you do not wish to visit St Govans Chapel.

If you feel in need of a light lunch, or cold beverage, then St Govans Country Inn is a few minutes walk away, (you will have passed it on your way round).
