A summit with views of three countries shares top billing with a 5,000-year-old trail on this stroll
Here’s something that not too many people know – Pembrokeshire, famed for its coastline, also has one of the finest viewpoints in southern Britain. Foel Cwmcerwyn, in the Preseli Hills, may be quite modest in altitude, but on a clear day it offers a superb view over three countries. Its 536-metre summit can be reached relatively easily and is the high point of this walk.
I do this walk regularly, always setting off from the delightfully named Rosebush village, which has nothing to do with roses but is probably an anglicisation of Rhos-y-bwlch, meaning a gap in the moors.
