A walk on the wild side

Wales: I had promised myself a day exploring the opposite side of the estuary from our holiday flat. It's somewhat wilder and less developed, although there's a small village, Gwbert, with a hotel that sits atop the cliffs, offering fine views (and a decent cup of coffee!) The Wales Coast Path continues along here, though a farm park visitor attraction means the most interesting bit, overlooking Cardigan Island, is not accessible to walkers. The coastline is craggy, with numerous little beaches and caves. There were lots of wildflowers everywhere we went. The field walls are often covered in earth and flowers, like walls in Ireland. On this stretch, it was the sea pinks that caught my attention.

From the highest point, there are fine views back up the Teifi estuary to St Dogmael's and Cardigan. 

(Tomorrow my blog returns to Saltaire for a few days, to celebrate the recent Saltaire Arts Trail. I'll carry on with my holiday journal again after that.)


  1. Hi Jenny - love that song ... while your walk looks delightful and reminds me of Cornwall - particularly the pinks ... it's been a pleasure being a part of your visit to Wales - cheers Hilary

  2. The Welsh coast looks wonderful, Jenny!
