Out and About – on Dry Days
On a dry day, there is nothing better than to explore the beautiful landscape and coastline of Pembrokeshire. Soaking up the warm sunshine and breathing in the fresh Welsh air are all you need to realise you are on holiday in one of the most beautiful places in the British Isles.
A leisurely (or sometimes taxing!) walk along the famous Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coastal paths, will allow you to take in some breathtaking views and scenery and you may even be lucky enough to see the Cardigan Bay Bottlenose Dolphins which are resident in the area.
To get ‘up close and personal’ with the dolphins, seals and occasional whale, take a guided sightseeing boat trip around the coast or a sea fishing trip to catch your supper!
For those of you who would rather keep your feet on dry land, there are heritage sites and castles to visit. Cilgerran Castle, a beautiful ruin, is just 2 miles away from the Cottages at Fron Fawr and sits high above the Teifi river with views across the surrounding valley.
To walk along the Teifi gorge, visit the nearby West Wales Wildlife Centre at Cilgerran where there’s a new visitor centre and organic café. The whole family can enjoy a gentle trip down the river in a canoe or the more adventurous can opt for a kayak.
National Trust properties and Cadw sites are plentiful and you can visit historic houses and gardens; try your hand at panning for gold in the Dolacothi Gold Mines; or take part in an archaeological dig at Castell Henllys, a reconstructed Iron Age Fort.
The beaches in West Wales are simply stunning – wide and open with rock pools and sand dunes or sheltered and sandy for lazy summer days.
