Short climb & cake walks

by Webmaster, 21st January 2020

In the final part of our winter-warmer trilogy, each walk turns up the heat with a short climb with fab views followed by coffee and cake in a cosy cafe

There are many ways to keep warm over winter. A simple method is to walk into a cafe, order coffee and cake, and sit by the fire. A more active option is to don a hat and scarf, head outside and walk in the direction of up.

This month each of our routes encompasses both of these tried-and-tested techniques. They all involve a climb, but ascent-a-phobes needn’t worry – none of the hills are particularly high. However, they’ll all do the job of raising your pulse and hopefully your mood too, as the view from the top of each hill is one to savour.

Then, once your body temperature starts to drop, it’s a quick descent to somewhere snug where coffee and cake are abundant.

ROUTE 1 – Enjoy Anglesey and Great Orme views from the top of Conwy Mountain

ROUTE 2 – Reach the rocks atop the Preseli hills, Pembrokeshire

ROUTE 3 – See one of the country’s most stunning bays from all angles on the Gower Peninsula
