Ceredigion Coast Path

Ceredigion Coast Path

Ceredigion Coast Path

by: Liz Allan
This book describes a route devised by the author which aims to follow the Welsh Ceredigion coast from Cardigan in the south to Borth in the north, a distance of 60 miles. When this route was conceived there was not a continuous right of way along the whole coastline, but thanks to the Ceredigion Coast Path Project the situation is changing and this edition of the guide has been updated to reflect changes on the ground. The route now also forms part of the Wales Coast Path.

The route is an adventure. A challenge in parts, and easy as pie in others. This is a relatively unexplored part of the Welsh coastline, but boasts internationally important marine wildlife, stunning landscapes, picturesque villages and warm welcomes. The guide divides the route up into six sections each representing a day's walking which ends at a village or town with accommodation and refreshments. The guide includes detailed directions and sketch maps.

The six sections are:
Cardigan to Aberporth - 11.7 miles
Aberporth to Llangranog - 4.8 miles
Llangranog to New Quay - 9.3 miles
New Quay to Llanrhystud - 14 miles
Llanrhystud to Aberystwyth - 10.6 miles
Aberystwyth to Borth (Ynyslas) - 9.8 miles

Ceredigion and Snowdonia Coast Paths

Ceredigion and Snowdonia Coast Paths

by: John B Jones
By turns rugged and gently contoured, sweeping and intimate, exciting and atmospheric, the coast of Wales down Cardigan Bay, from the end of the Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path to the start of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, makes for an inspiring walk. This guide covers the splendid and varied section of the Wales Coast Path along the Snowdonia coast, around the Dyfi Estuary and down the Ceredigion coast - a distance of 233km (145 miles).
The route follows long sandy beaches, high rugged cliffs and steep-sided cwms; you walk beside saltmarshes, stride over coastal plains, wander through the margins of Snowdonia's coastal hills and crunch along pebble storm beaches. And there are great views: on clear days, especially from the central parts of Cardigan Bay, you can see the whole sweep of the coast from Bardsey Island to Strumble Head, backed by the mountains of Snowdonia in the north and rolling green hills in the south.
There are beautiful inland routes around the estuaries of Traeth Bach and the Dyfi, many attractive settlements to pass through and much of historic interest. A fascinating geology is laid bare in the different rock strata and landforms, and there is a rich and immensely varied natural history.
This guidebook describes this route in 16 day stages from Porthmadog to St Dogmaels. The guidebook offers all the information walkers need to complete this 233km section of the Wales Coast Path that curves down Cardigan Bay, passing through a range of contrasting landscapes. It is also worth considering building in rest days in order to visit, for example, Harlech Castle, or ride on of the narrow gauge railways. With excellent public transport links, you don't have to tackle it all at once. It's easy to split into short breaks and day walks as suits your schedule. Background information on geology, history and the many points of interest along the way are included in the book together with coloured OS 1:50,000 map extracts and custom-drawn sketch maps plus practical details on facilities, accommodation and travel.
