Lamphey South Wales, October 2010


October 2010

We stayed near Denbych-y-pysgod, otherwise known as Tenby in South Wales. We stayed in a Georgian (1814) farmhouse, (yellow push-pin on the map) about 2 miles east of Pembroke.  The weather was great for Wales in October, in fact it was great for the UK at anytime.  The coloured  routes on the maps below show our longer walks.

Sunday, we had a long walk (the blue route on the map) south to Freshwater East, then along the coast to Manorbier and then back, via a very muddy lane, very popular with cows. We walked about 13 miles in all. Pictures:

Monday, we visted Tenby, and walked just about every street, following an historic Town Trail. We then went BACK around the town by courtesy of well-known equine local celebrity ‘Mr Ed’ and his handler John.  Watch the film below. Just click the big white triangle, to start, then click the arrows just below the YouTube logo to watch in full screen.

Tuesday, another seven miles, walking (the lilac route on the map) around a lake near Bosherston, over the dunes and along the extensive cliff top walk.

Wednesday, we visited Caldey Island, (the yellow route on the map) two miles off the coast from Tenby. It is owned by a group of about 16 Cistercian monks, who make perfume and fudge. It was very tranquil. ‘Cistercian’ derives from Cistercium, the Latin name for the village of Citeaux, near Dijon in eastern France.

Thursday, we visited Pembroke, and spent a long time exploring it’s ancient castle and underground cavern.  Wales has 641 castles, and this is one of the best.

Friday, another 8 miles of walking (the orange route on the map), near Cresswell Quay and Lawrenny, up hills, through ancient woodland, along a low-tide river estuary and back.
And here’s a map to show where we were...
