Itinerary

Description

One of the most stunningly rugged regions in the UK, the west coast of Wales is renowned for its grand hills, dramatic coastline and purple-heather moors, and we discover it all on this five-day break. Visiting ancient sites of natural beauty and elegant Victorian seaside resorts, we get a sense of the past in this lovely landscape before joining a preserved narrow gauge railway for a spectacular journey weaving through the Vale of Rheidol. If you are looking for the perfect holiday to relax and unwind in the diverse country of Wales, then look no further!

Itinerary

Included Excursions

Aberystwyth & the Vale of Rheidol Railway (full day)

We spend some time in the well-known resort of Aberystwyth, where we climb aboard the Vale of Rheidol narrow gauge railway. Recreating Edwardian ambience, we sit back and relax in our restored vintage carriage for a journey of almost 12 miles through stunning scenery. We pass through ancient and enchanting woodlands to the village of Devil’s Bridge, home of the famous waterfalls.

Tenby & Saundersfoot (full day)

We start our relaxing day in Tenby, a picturesque seaside town on the south coast that was once a popular health resort with Victorians. There’s plenty to explore here, from browsing the wide range of shops and strolling along the cobbled streets or the sandy beaches, to admiring the distinctive town walls, built in the late 13th century by the first Earl of Pembroke.

Afterwards, we continue to the small seaside resort of Saundersfoot with its wide sandy beach and busy harbour. Saundersfoot was designated as a conservation area by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in 1995. There are a number of cafés, pubs, shops and restaurants to enjoy, including some along the beachfront.


Optional excursion

Cardigan & St Davids – £13pp (full day)

On our optional excursion, we spend some time in the estuary town of Cardigan, close to the border between Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion and lying next to the River Teifi. This historic town has retained its charm, with the narrow streets, Georgian and Victorian buildings and traditional inns creating a unique atmosphere.

We then travel to St Davids, an attractive and peaceful village within the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, granted city status due to the presence of its 12th-century cathedral. This is the smallest city in Wales and is where the country’s patron Saint, St David, was born.
