There are many Popular Walks Near St Dogmaels

Antosh, Gill, Ann Cakebread and the local Footpath Association created this folding waterproof map. Catch the 405 “Poppit Rocket”, one of the Coastal Walkers Bus Services. Many guests use these buses so that they can base themselves at one B&B for two or more days and walk in different directions along the Coast Path. We use the bus and the bus drivers and other passengers are helpful.
