Pembrokeshire Coast Path
Jagged and remote, the Pembrokeshire coastline juts out towards the Irish Sea. Crumbling cliffs and picturesque villages pepper this breathtaking coastline. The best way to explore this stunning area of the UK is by trekking the 299km Coast Path from Amrothto St Dogmaels. Allow around two weeks, but for a taster base yourself at St David's, Britain’s smallest city, and strike out for the sands of St Brides Bay, where swimmers, beachcombers and surfers make the most of the unspoilt sands.
If there is one walk to sum up the beautiful British countryside, it would be this 164km path winding through the gentle limestone hills of the Cotswolds, from stately Bath to the market town of Chipping Campden. This is the area of stately homes and afternoon tea, and after a long day of walking you’ll have earned a hearty scone with clotted cream.
Hadrian's Wall Path
When the Romans built Hadrian's Wall, they likely didn’t consider that their handiwork would one day form the backdrop for one of the country’s finest walks. Spanning 135km from Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria, to appropriately named Wallsend in Tyne and Wear, this National Trail combines bracing hiking with the cultural heritage for which the UK is famous.

Clever Sheep, Angry Cows and Iron Men … these were just some of the things author Nick Corble encountered during his diagonal walk through England. Almost exactly a year ago we featured Nick as he set out on his alternative coast to coast walk across England. Of course, being an author, Nick has written a book about his walk. He is making copies of the book available to Stay In a Pub followers for only £9.99 (RRP £12.99) including UK p&p. All you have to do is follow this link.
