Mwnt & Llanerchaeron

Last day in Pembrokeshire – tomorrow I head north for a week in Swowdonia
Promising start to the day – the warmest so far.

St Dogmaels

First off – head to the beach at Mwnt (pronounced “moont”). I read great things about it and I wasn’t disappointed.

Mwnt

It’s only a few miles from where I am staying but it’s fairly isolated – it’s not somewhere you would find by chance.

It’s looked after by the National Trust which means there this a good car park, easy access down a number of steps and it has basic facilities – a shop and WC.

One of the things the beach is famous for is the Dolphins and Seals that frequent the bay – I didn’t expect to be lucky but I was – the Dolphins were fairly far out and only on the surface for brief periods so it was hard to capture them with the camera – this was the best I could manage.

The seal was even more elusive – when I finally reaslised it was a seal and not a swimer’s head – it disappeared under the surface and I didn’t see it again.

After the beach – I headed for the Llanerchaeron estate – I’d forgotten I had visited it before in 2006, but it was still worth the trip.
