Beautiful accommodation / Stunning Views – YHA Poppit Sands, Sea View, Poppit, Cardigan, Pembroke, SA43 3LP.
This year FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER WE ARE VISITING PEMBROKSHIRE IN SOUTH WALES AND WE HAVE SECURED FABULOUS coastal accommodation right on the iconic Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
Poppit Sands is a former inn overlooking the Teifi Estuary, and it stands in five acres of grounds reaching down to the sea. At the northern end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, this area provides exceptional views of the fantastic Blue Flag beach which is occasionally visited by bottlenose dolphins, seals and porpoises.
Located at the Cardigan Bay, the most important area in the UK and Europe for bottlenose dolphins where you see the largest resident population – approximately 300 all year round. Watch the sunset from the porch as you sip your wine and chat with your friends, walk along the unspoilt Pembrokeshire coast, take a boat trip to look at dolphins and wales up close, stroll through the picturesque coastal villages or go sightseeing at the fully reconstructed Iron Age Hillfort at Castell Henllys. Pembrokeshire has it all!
South Wales is home to the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only national park of its kind in the UK with nearly 40 unspoilt beaches recommended by the Marine Conservation Society. It is truly a gem among the landscapes of Britain where you can see many bird species and bats hunting along the lines of twisting hedgerows rich with wild flowers, and Atlantic grey seals, dolphins and porpoises playing in the waves. There are some extraordinary visiting creatures as well, returning every year to the stunning Pembrokeshire’s shores: basking sharks, orcas, blue whales, blue sharks, sunfish, turtles and Risso dolphins.
4 DAYS OF FUN – OUR SCHEDULE
There is car share available and parking at our accommodation for no extra cost. We have a 4/5 hour drive with the last hour being a truly enjoyable, picturesque journey through Wales! After we have arrived at the accommodation we will be unwinding with a drink or two and meeting our fellow weekenders enjoying wine / lager and perhaps the odd sing song.
Following a cooked breakfast at the accommodation we will be taking an optional activities of horse riding, pony trek along the Pembrokeshire coast, admiring the local landscape and wild life or a beautiful coastal walk. Following our activities we will be visiting a local Welsh pub for a well-deserved pint and pub lunch. Then it’s back to the accommodation in time to see the stunning sunset from our front door. Views of the evening twilight’s descent enjoyed it is time for a party, games and prizes and even a little karaoke whilst we drink our chosen tipple until late into the night (or early in the morning)
Following a fully cooked breakfast we have a drive to the stunningly scenic and historic village of Cilgerran where we will be visiting the beautiful Cilgerran Castle and learning all about its amazing and fascinating history. Following a wholesome lunch in the local village our afternoon sees us taking a 2 hour boat trip (this is optional). If you choose to take this interesting and fun boat trip we will be visiting one of the Pembrokeshire Islands and seeing some of the amazing dolphins up close. There is an option for those who don’t come on the boat trip to site see whether that is to visit the St Dogmael’s village and abbey, visit the butterfly farm or visit the fabulous Felinwynt Rainforest.
We’ll come back to the house to enjoy a few drinks and a lovely home cooked dinner and then depending upon your preference we will either party at our accommodation whilst enjoying the backdrop of stunning views of the beach and sea or if you prefer we will visit the local town of Cardigan either way we will be drinking, enjoying music, let our hair down and socialising with each other in a party atmosphere!
After a leisurely cooked breakfast and reading the Sunday papers, if there is time we will be taking a visit to the local town of Newport and taking in the views and atmosphere of this well visited Welsh popular holiday town before we will say goodbye to the beautiful vistas and the lovely Poppit Sands and head back home to Manchester.
