The Pembrokeshire Walkers Coastal Bus Services:
The Walkers Coastal Bus Service runs around the whole coast of Pembrokeshire daily from early May to late September, connecting towns & villages along the length of the Coast path. The ‘Poppit Rocket’, which passes Argo Villa travels to Fishguard (via Moylegrove & Newport) and back 3 times a day. You can ask the driver to be dropped off at Argo Villa, the 'blue house' opposite the Ferry Inn in St. Dogmaels. In winter the 405 runs on Thursdays & Saturdays only.
Some guests use these Coastal Walkers buses to return to their B&B at the end of a days walk and then the next day catch the bus back to where they finished walking the previous day. This allows walkers to base themselves at one B&B and explore in different directions.
We use the bus quite frequently and the bus drivers are helpful
