Activities And Days Out From Our West Wales Holiday Cottage

Walking: we have local walking maps for you in the cottage

  • Paths wind through mixed beautiful broad-leaved and conifer forest, tranquil glades past ancient abandoned stone buildings, with great cathedral-like canopies , past waterfalls and over a strange, curved, wooden bridge, straight out of ‘Lord of the Rings’!
  • We are in close proximity to public footpaths and recognized trails and circular walks.
  • There are a range of walks….for difficulty, length, themes, seasons.
  • Sarn Helen, the 160 mile roman road from Caerhun near Conwy in North Wales to Carmarthen, passes through Brechfa Forest.
  • A review in the INDEPENDENT as of tuesday 24th March 2015..

Gorlech Stone Gorlech Stones: Once thought to be the fossilized remains of some sort of prehistoric animal, they are now understood to be nodules with lines of calcite running through them. Some can be seen as you walk through the village of Abergorlech, in peoples gardens. They are very rare and found nowhere else in the world, except Anglesey
