amazing walking, even without getting the car out

Walking

You don’t have to get the car out to enjoy lovely walks – there are several which start right here at the mill or Park Villa.  Cross the bridge in the mill car park across the Mamog and you’re onto a truly beautiful gem of a walk, up the river gorge, through bluebell woods.  When you reach the quiet road at the top, it’s your choice – past the ruined chapel, through the fields to Capel Iwan, or along the lane to Cwmorgan, then back down the Cych valley or up into the woods.  We can lend you a map and have lots of local walking books that you can borrow.

Our river, the Cych, runs down into the Teifi Valley – 75 miles of stunningly beautiful landscape, culture and history. There is a Teifi walking trail http://www.visitcardigan.com/teifi-river-trail.php and beautiful walks in the Teifi Estuary:

The Lonely Planet guide has declared the Welsh Coastline the greatest region on earth in 2012.  When you add that to National Geographic magazine’s ranking of Pembrokeshire as the 2nd most beautiful coastline in the World, you know that you are coming somewhere really special. http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/2011/10/28/welcome-to-wales-coastline-the-greatest-region-on-earth-in-2012-91466-29675500/

In May 2012, the All Wales Coast Path opened – the only continuous coastal path in the world.  It runs some 870 miles (1,400km) from Chepstow right the way to Queensferry in Flintshire, North Wales.  We are 25 minutes drive from the start of the best part of it – the Pembrokeshire Coastal path, with 186 miles of amazing scenery.   Take a look at this article for 10 amazing views along the Pembroksehire section: https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/getoutside/explore/ten-unbelievable-views-along-the-pembrokeshire-coastal-path/

It links up with a further 60 miles of the Ceredigion Coastal Path, an ideal route to spot seals and dolphins as you walk.   Here’s an article about this 250 miles of glorious walking:   http://wales.gov.uk/newsroom/environmentandcountryside/2011/110221coastpath/?lang=en&dm_i=FO5,DRC8,20G0BD,13B3Z,1  

There are also amazing walks in the Preselli Mountains, where the bluestones for Stonehenge came from, and many other wonderful walks and trails to choose from, with plenty of friendly pubs and cafes to refresh yourselves on the way.
