St Govan's, Elegug Stacks and the Green Bridge of Wales


Josh had a day off last Saturday and we were much in need of a fun family day together as things have been very busy recently. The weather was good so we decided to tick some things off our Pembrokeshire bucket list and walk the coast path between St Govan's and the Elegug Stacks.


First we visited St Govan's Chapel which I've wanted to see for ages. It's a tiny stone building right in the cliff built sometime around the 6th century which you reach by climbing down a steep flight of steps. It's an amazing place and the inside is covered in carved graffiti with the waves thundering outside.


We then carried along the coast path. I had heard that this part of the coast line is particularly spectacular and has some of the best sea-caves and arches in the county; we certainly weren't disappointed! We even saw some nesting Guillemots which was an unexpected surprise.


We found a beautifully sheltered spot among wildflowers and long grass overlooking the beach to eat our picnic and feed Alys before heading back to the car and an ice-cream. I just feel so blessed to live in a place where we can do this kind of walk on our day off. It was stunning!

  1. What a wonderful stretch of coastline to explore, it looks very like North Cornwall. the old chapel looks like something out of a period drama and a great one to explore. Gorgeous photos and perfect picnic spot. Just my idea of a perfect family trip. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.
