Starting with a walk on the Friday evening, we will attempt to cover around 25 miles over the weekend with 3 walks of approximately 7 miles, 8 miles and 10 miles. We will be walking from Cardigan to Newquay across this weekend with a view to doing the next section North to Aberystwyth in September. I hope to be able to make a bit of an event out of this and will be appealing to Welsh speakers locally to join us on some or all of the journey.
Cardigan to Mwnt. 7m
Mwnt to Penbryn 8m
Penbryn to Newquay 10m
The coastal path can be slightly more challenging than a straight forward walk so this weekend is for people with some walking experience. Because we will need to pick up and drop off each other in cars, ideally I would prefer it if people can drive for this weekend but if you can't send an email and we will see how it is looking for drivers.
Cost of the weekend including 3 nights accommodation in a single room at Garth Newydd is £155 with a deposit of £50 to secure your place. Our weekends are aimed at people who have some conversational Welsh and wish to practice/improve. We will be using Cymraeg only to communicate across the weekend. We will be accompanied by a qualified walking guide.
Breakfast and evening meal will be provided in the house for free but of course you may need a little bit of money for bits and pieces out and about.
To book a place please pay the deposit £50 now and the rest on arrival
