Martins Haven to Nolton Haven

This is Haven heaven, stringing together 6 bays with a ‘Haven’ name: Martin’s Haven, St Bride’s Haven, Little Haven, Broad Haven, Druidston Haven and Nolton Haven. It’s a relatively easy walk to start with, as there’s very little change in elevation until you pass Little Haven. It gets a bit more strenuous after.

ROUTE

  • Head east from Martin's Haven for 1½ miles.
  • If the tide is out, take a look at Musselwick Sands before veering round to the north.
  • After a couple of miles, you’ll turn a corner and spy both St Bride’s Haven (toilets) and St Bride’s Castle, a 19 th century baronial mansion, now a plush self catering complex.
  • St Bride’s Haven was the site of a Mesolithic flint factory. Take a look at the church if you have time.
  • Proceed along gradually higher cliffs until you emerge onto a very short section of road.
  • The path then drops rapidly towards Little Haven, finally descending steep steps to The Cobb.
  • If the tide is well out, you can walk to Broad Haven along the beach to avoid the steep hill in between.
  • A gradual gradient north of Broad Haven brings you to a spectacular viewpoint at Haroldston Chins.
  • Take to the road for half a mile as you pass Druidston Hotel, then head down a track to the beach.
  • It’s a bit steep up the far side but it’s not sustained. It’s fairly level until you drop gently down to Nolton Haven.
  • If in doubt, follow the acorn symbols that indicate where the route goes.
