Harland, Merrill was raising money for charity (around 500,000 for RNIB as I recall) and, as a consequence, had a lot of support from Rotary Club members enroute. But it's a long time since I read that book to be fair. This may be the reason he doesn't detail much of his accommodation specifically though..?

Bit of a late update. Completed the hike and found there was no problem finding 'wild camping' along the Pembrokeshire section. Actually found that was basically the case all of the way along the Wales Coastal Path.
My four 'non wild camps' in Pembrokeshire were...

Hampton House B&B run by Chris and Viv Prior (most thoroughly recommended!)at Trefin. Clean, quiet,comfortable, friendly and excellent breakfast. This is almost next door to the hostel at Trefin, which turned out to be full at the time.

Sandy Haven Campground (about 4 miles from Milford Haven)
Fairly basic with no store but a welcome haven after a long day and a long cold wait awaiting a tidal drop to use stepping stones to access the area. Ground looked like it could be a bit sloping for tent pitches in places but my spot was ok.

Manorbier YHA at Lydstep. Clean, with good meals (albeit small ones!)and facilities.

Llangain Campground (adjacent to old church not too far from pub)
Pleasant spot, quiet. Maybe a tad expensive for a tent pitch at ten quid?

Pembrokeshire, as expected was a 'highlight' section along with Anglesey, Lleyn Peninsula and the Gower.
