Mwnt to St Dogmaels – Wales Coast Path

 

« 1 of 2 »

Moving on from Pembrokeshire Coast Path to Ceredigion.

This particular section is pretty but bitty.

Mwnt is a favourite spot of mine for dolphin spotting and sunsets.

Thet tiny whitewashed Church of the Holy Cross dates from the 14th century, and nestles below Foel y Mwnt.

Lucy’s friend, Louise Williams, based her Bake Off design on this little church and when it collapsed on the show it was her turn to leave the kitchen. The memory resulted in a Lucy Tweet.

The beach at Mwnt is sheltered on all sides and has a National Trust Car park and toilets!

One thing we missed on this stretch is the Grid references on the signposting, and the Ceredigion Path logo predominates with few Wales Coast Path signs.

The path veers inland through a field and then down through Ferwig towards Gwbert with views across to Poppit Sands Following the track alongside the main road, we soon reach a turn off which takes us through fields with tantalising views down onto the river Teifi.

Crossing a road to some fields which takes us further away from the river, we follow the signs until we pass the Sewage works and we eventually drop down to Netpool.

The path takes us up Quay street, and you cannot miss the newly renovated 12th century castle. Walk down the hill to the Quay and across the bridge over the Teifi. Turn right passing a new Fusion Asian restaurant (this used to be the Eagle pub). Signposting needs to be looked out for the turn towards St Dogmaels Abbey – the only Tironian Order Abbey in England and Wales.

If you are lucky enough to be here on a Tuesday the local produce market is worthy of a visit – winner in its category of the BBC Good Food Award. Producers sourced within a 30 mile radius.

We had a hearty lunch at the White Hart pub nearby.
