Pembrey Country Park
Walk: SOC 05
Location: Pembrey Park, Pembrey Forest & Pembrey Beach (and Kidwelly Castle)
Directions: Down to Swansea, joint M4 J45, go West to J48 M4 and follow signs to Pembrey Park, or set Sat Nav to get to Pembrey, then look out for signs to Pembrey Park. It is well signposted from the motorway but then the signs become rather pathetic and you can miss it. The nearer you get to Pembrey, you will find it is not that well signposted. If you are going north coming out of Pembrey, it is almost immediately on your left before Kidwelly, marked by a small brown tourist sign. If you have gone beyond Pembrey's small airfield on your left, then you've gone too far.
For Kidwelly Castle, continue on past Pembrey and the airfield signs and Kidwelly is on your left. Kidwelly castle is in the town centre pretty well and does not make a full dog walk, though dogs on leads are allowed in the castle.
Distance (miles): 34.2
Time (hours): 1.04
Length of Walk: 2-5 hours or more; you can make a day of it here. Bring a picnic.
Pembrey Park: 24/12/2008, 27/09/2009,

Parking: £2.00 in the winter but up to £6.00 or more in the high season/ summer.
Pop in to: There is a small woodland walk on the right before you get to the park, which is further along a private looking stretch of road. This is worth popping in to if you are not wishing to go to the Park itself.
