Wild about Pembrokeshire

The unique beauty, history and spiritual aura of St Davids, Britain’s smallest City, and its surrounding landscape continues to attract pilgrims and visitors from all over the world. Its Gulf Stream climate, the stunning coastline that was shaped by the sea, its wildlife and ancient landscape lies within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only coastal National Park in Great Britain

This beautiful area has recently received two new accolades:- UK readers of Coast Magazine have voted the 186 mile coastal path as their favourite, and National Geographic Magazine have rated the Pembrokeshire Coast with its 50 beaches as joint 2nd best coastal destination in the world!!

So what better and more appropriate place could there be to discover your ‘inner forager’!!

It isn’t all about food though! Foraging is just ‘gathering or ‘searching’ or ‘rummaging’ so covers all manner of pastimes in all sorts of locations!! On these Really Wild courses and walks you can go exploring for plants and seaweeds that are used for remedies, cosmetics, or foods and drinks…..and plenty more…….!

The courses are a great way for the curious to learn about wild produce, and the lanes, green byways and coastline around the historic Cathedral City of St Davids will provide much to inspire you. No walk or course will be the same because of the different ingredients each season offers. But you will have fun experimenting with different flavours and discovering all sorts of weird bits of information whilst enjoying Pembrokeshire’s glorious scenery. You will be given a chance to have taster samples on some of the walks and a more comprehensive wild picnic on the longer courses. On some of the day courses we may cook and eat what we have gathered whilst we are out, maybe on the beach, but if the weather is bad we’ll cook together at Julia’s home at the Old Carpenters Arms, in Goat Street.

If there isn’t a walk/course/day to suit you or your group then please get in touch and we’ll try and tailor one to fit in with you.
