Out and About
The Old Pottery is in the Preseli National Park so from the door you can walk straight out on to Mynydd Preseli.
Nearby are Iron Age earthworks and burial cairns. A short uphill walk to Foel Drygarn and Carnalw will reward you with fabulous views of the hills and coast. On a clear day you can see across Cardigan Bay to Snowdonia and over the sea to the hills of Ireland.
Walk a little further and you will find Carn Menyn. The bluestones of Stonehenge come from these rugged crags. From here you can follow the Golden Road, an ancient track that would have been a main trade route between Wales and Ireland, to Bedd Arthur (Arthur’s Grave). Legend has it that King Arthur and his Knights roamed and fought in these hills. These days you will have red kites, buzzards, ravens and kestrels keeping you company on your walk.The beautiful beaches and imposing headlands of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park are close by. The coastal path is 186 miles long and hugs the surf between St Dogmaels and Amroth.
The walking is spectacular, with most of the miles on narrow cliff-top paths that run over headlands and down to the sea. The trail passes through some breathtaking scenery. Sea birds fill the skies and craggy cliff-sides and you will see porpoises, seals and even dolphins. Binoculars are highly recommended.
