If you love walking and you love food, why not combine the two on a culinary Cambrian Trail

The Cambrian Way is a beautiful coast to coast walk through some of the highest and wildest parts of Wales, covering 298 miles from Cardiff Castle in the south to Conwy in the north. It also takes in many great places to eat along the way and Visit Wales have compiled a culinary trail with hand picked dining recommendations to help replenish those much needed calories. 

Starting just south of Cardiff, they suggest you begin your journey with a delicious meal at the one Micheliin star, Home at Penarth, run by top chef James Sommerin and his daughter Georgina. There speciality is a leisurely eight course tasting menu with a cooking demonstration before you dine.

For something a little more rustic, why not drop in at Hills Burgers in Brecon where you can feast on traditional beef burgers or for something a little different you could try the vegan doughnut bacon cheeseburger, which is 100% plant based patties, with beetroot, onion jam served in a iced ring doughnut bun.

Or for a traditional Sunday lunch or good pub fayre, stop off at the Brigands Inn, Mallwyd or the Cross Foxes Dolgellau, which offer a curry night, Sunday lunch menu, as well as a good range of vegan and gluten free optons.

And finish your journey at the now famous Dylans in Llandudno which specialises in local fresh seafood, all served in a high ceilinged, Art Deco restaurant with sea views.
