Loz’s Leisure itinerary
Check in at Wildernest
Wildernest is a haven set in the coastal hills above the Aeron Valley, featuring cosy cottages which have been restored from original old stone buildings.
Address: Wildernest, Dihewyd, Lampeter SA48 7QR
AM - In the morning, spend time exploring Llangrannog and take a walk along the beach. Just north of Llangrannog beach is the secluded cove of Cilborth, accessed either from Llangrannog beach at low tide or via the cliff steps from the Coast Path. Between the two beaches is a large tooth-shaped rock known as Carreg Bica. Legend has it that it once belonged in the mouth of a local giant.
Park here: Llangrannog Park and Ride Free Car Park, Min-Y-Nant, Llandysul SA44 6RL (there is a regular shuttle bus that is run by volunteers that you may be able to hop on, but it’s only a short walk into the village otherwise)
PM – Jump in the car and drive north to New Quay. Once a thriving port, its now well known for dolphin spotting and Blue Flag and Seaside Award-winning beaches.
Park here: New Quay Rock Street Car Park, Wellington Pl, New Quay SA45 9NR
Evening meal at Y Seler in Aberaeron. Local menu highlights include the Celtic Pride fillet steak and fresh Menai mussels. If you have time, arrive a little earlier and spend some time walking around the Aberaeron harbour or look out for the pastel-coloured houses opposite.
Address: 8 Market Street, Aberaeron, SA46 0AS
Park here: Aberaeron Car Park, SA46 0BH
AM – Drive into Pembrokeshire to Strumble Head. On the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and within the Pembrokeshire National Park, Strumble Head’s rocky and jagged headland juts out of the coastline. This area of the coast path boasts incredible wildlife including with bottle-nose dolphins, grey seals and even orcas having been spotted here. Bring a good pair of walking boots.
Follow the postcode to Pencaer (SA64 0JL) which will take you as close as you can get in the car to Strumble Head. There is a section of layby parking which we’ve highlighted on the map below in red.
Check in at Baytree Bed & Breakfast
Address: Maesglasnant, Cwmffrwd, Carmarthen SA31 2LS
Coastal Foraging, the foraging courses will teach you all about edible seafood, where to find or catch it and a bit of local history at the same time.
Dress appropriately with comfy waterproof shoes – wellies would be ideal. Take a drink and a snack with you as you’ll be out for between 5-6 hours.
