The “Saundersfoot Tunnel Walks” are an enjoyable trail walking from Saundersfoot to Wiseman’s Bridge, passing through two low tunnels following the route of the railway that used to carry coal between the two towns. We usually walk from Saundersfoot to Wiseman’s Bridge and back but on this occasion we actually parked at Coppet Hall, walked into Saundersfoot then back to Coppet Hall and onto Wiseman’s Bridge and then back to the car park located next to Coast restaurant (SA69 9AJ)
Coppet Hall to Saundersfoot
The tunnels are each about 100m long on a flat surface making them accessible for all but beware they can be very wet (wear wellies!).
In Saundersfoot we went into the arcade (a must for the kids on every visit). Then we paid a visit to Chobbles, the lovely traditional sweet shop. There are plenty more things to do in Saundersfoot- you could play on the beach or go for a pub meal.

We made our way back through the tunnel from Saundersfoot to Coppet Hall.
Coppet Hall is a blue flag beach with excellent facilities nearby making it a day out itself within the summer months. A voluntary dog ban is in place between May to September during the beaches busier season.

My favourite part of this walk is strolling along the promenade right next to the rough sea. When larger waves crash you can get wet (as the kids did and squealed with delight then laughter!).
We have fond memories of Wiseman’s Bridge as we often stayed here in our tourer caravan as a child. There is a lovely beach and also The Wiseman’s Bridge Inn pub. From Wiseman’s Bridge you can then walk on through another tunnel to Stepaside- I’ll take you there in another post.

During the warmer months it’s a good idea to pack your swim clothes and towels for a paddle on the beach (or beaches) of your choice. But during the cooler months the Saundersfoot to Wiseman’s Bridge trail is a great way to blow away the cobwebs, get your sea air fix and watch the wild waves without having to step foot into the freezing cold sea.
