Out and About
Only a few miles from the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast and Cardigan Bay, the cottages are ideally situated to explore the wonders of West Wales.
On the borders of three counties – Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, there are soooooo many places to visit and things to do, you’ll wish you were staying longer!
Check out this lovely film, ‘Summer from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path’ from Visit Pembrokeshire, for some holiday inspiration!
There is nothing better than to explore the beautiful landscape and coastline of Pembrokeshire and the surrounding counties. 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.
Sandy beaches, coastal and woodland walks and fresh air are available in abundance and cost nothing except your enjoyment, enthusiasm and time. And if you’ve brought your pet along on holiday too, what could be better than seeing them frolic in the gentle surf with the breeze blowing through their fur or jumping through bluebell woods, picking up numerous scents of woodland creatures?
Between 1st October – 30th April, dogs can go on any beach without restriction. From 1st May – 30th September, some beaches do have areas restricted to dogs. The following links will show you where you can enjoy the coast with your four legged friend:
There’s a wealth of activities to suit all abilities and ages, come rain or shine.
