Local Walks

There are a number  of scenic walks - footpaths and trails in the area  - including the spectacular new Ceredigion Coastal Path. Click on the photos below for more information. 

The Cei Bach circular walk

A relaxing 1.5 mile walk, this section of the coastal path starts near the Cei Bach Country Club and offers some fine views of New Quay and Llanina Point. The photos on this walk  were taken on an afternoon in mid November. This walk is best taken when the tide is low enough to return along the beach. Click on the photo for more information.

The Cwmtydu circular coastal walk

Organised by Ceredigion County Council and led by David Thomas, author of several books on Dylan Thomas and New Quay, the walkers met in the car park of the Crown Inn at Llwyndafydd. This pub, now a renowned local restaurant also, was once the meeting place of the Cilie poets - children and grand children of Jeremiah and Mary Jones.

This walk takes in a section of the coastal path from Cwm Tydu to Cwm Soden. Click on the photo for more information.

'Cors Caron' - Tregaron Bog

Tregaron Bog is one of the few remaining examples of a raised peat bog in Britain. Lying beside the river Teifi just above the small market town of Tregaron on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains, there is now an excellent walk through the heart of the Bog on a timber decked walkway.

'Quite Early One Morning' - The New Quay circular cliff walk.

There is an excellent  walk from the centre of New Quay immortalised in the Dylan Thomas poem 'Quite early one morning'. It takes the visitor high above the town where the sounds of the community  can be heard from a considerable distance.

From the Tourist Office on the sea front, walk up Church Street as far as the Indian Restaurant and then turn right in to Albion Terrace. When you come to a cross roads, continue straight across into Lewis Terrace. Click on the photo for more information.

The Dylan Thomas Trail in New Quay

The Author David Thomas, in his recently published book 'Dylan Thomas, A Farm, Two Mansions and a Bungalow', has put together a convincing case that New Quay is the inspiration of Thomas's Llareggub  (read it backwards!). Details of the 'Dylan trail'  in his book 'The Dylan Thomas Trail' ( Published by Y Lolfa Cyf, Talybont, 2002,  6.95) take the visitor to a number of locations identified as models for locales in the fictional Llareggub.

Ceredigion Council provides a leaflet entitled 'Dylan Thomas - New Quay' available from the New Quay and Aberaeron Tourist Offices (below). Click the photo to see the locations mentioned in New Quay. Click on the photo for more information.
