Winter warmers (part two)

by Webmaster, 17th December 2019

Finish your cold-weather excursion this month with a tasty tipple in a traditional pub, while warming your weary feet next to a blazing hot fire… ahhh, lovely!

There’s something very satisfying about post-walk weariness. Even the odd aching joint doesn’t bother you too much, as you know the dull pain means you’ve tackled the elements, breathed in the fresh air and given yourself a jolly good workout.

That gratification is magnified when you leave the cold for the comfort of a warm pub. And there’s no more tantalising a sight after a winter’s walk than a flickering, crackling fire.

All three of our trips this month offer outstanding coastal scenery and – crucially – end with the chance to finish with a glass of something refreshing while cosying up to either a wood burner or an open fire.

ROUTE 1 – The crisp waters of the Menai Strait are followed by a drink in The Bull

ROUTE 2 – Fine views over the Dyfi Estuary from both the walk and Penhelig Arms

ROUTE 3 – Enjoy one of Gower’s quieter spots before a drink at the Britannia
