Pleasant Valley walk

This flat walk of just under a mile through the Pleasant Valley is part of the South Landsker Trail. It used to be a very muddy experience, but, it has recently been completely re-surfaced with a hard base and gravel cover making it very popular with local joggers, holidaymakers and, of course, dog owners.

The route runs east-west through the Pleasant Valley woods from Wiseman's Bridge - actually from the bridge itself - along the route of the former industrial tramway to just short of the old iron works (see the link below for more about that). A stream runs just below one side of the path and a wooded hillside is on the other.

The path is now highly suitable for wheelchair users, which is unusual for public footpaths. All credit to Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority for this. Occasional seats are provided along the path, as are bins for use by te dog walkers. Bicycles and horses are permitted to use the path, though these are rare.

Walkers can double back along the same path, or return via a slightly longer route along the road - take care as this road is narrow and can be busy in the holiday season.

For a longer journey, combine the Pleasant Valley walk with the walk from Wiseman's Bridge through the old railway tunnels to Coppet Hall and Saundersfoot (see here)

This is the Wiseman's Bridge end of the walk. On the right is the main road from Saundersfoot, with the bridge far right. The walk is accessed from the left hand road. Just below the bollards are public toilets, but don't be tempted to use the footpath there as, although it goes the right way, it is usually very muddy.

The inland end of the walk is very close to the historic iron works. This is where the footpath - on the right - joins the road which runs down the Pleasant Valley back to Wiseman's Bridge..
