In 16 day stages from Porthmadog to St Dogmaels, this guidebook offers all the information walkers need to complete the 233km (145 miles) section of the Wales Coast Path that curve down Cardigan Bay, passing through a range of contrasting landscapes.
Six days are spent on the Snowdonia Coast Path, two around the Dyfi Estuary, seven on the Ceredigion Coast Path and one from Cardigan to St Dogmaels.
Linking the Llyn Peninsula Coast Path with that of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, this section takes in Snowdonia National Park’s splendid coastal plains, leads inland through beautiful hill country around the Dyfi Estuary and follows some of the finest coastline in all of Wales on the Ceredigion Coast Path.
The Snowdonia Coast Path
This is not an official title, but since most of the route is within Snowdonia National Park it seems appropriate. The truly coastal sections tend to be along huge sandy beaches, while the remainder is through nearby hill country or across the coastal plains.
The Ceredigion Coast Path
The path starts at the flat lands at Ynyslas and joins the Wales Coast Path at Borth. Over a distance of just short of 100km (60 miles), it links Ynyslas with Cardigan on the Teifi Estuary, following some of Wales' finest and most varied coast.
Stong walkers could complete the full walk in just less than two weeks. It is also worth considering building in rest days in order to visit , say Harlech Castle, or ride on of the narrow gauge railways. With excellent public transport links, you don't have to tackle it all at once. It's easy to split into short breaks and day walks as suits your schedule.
"Between Penrhyndeudraeth and Llandecwyn the opening of the road across the estuary of the Dwyryd means the path now follows the parallel cycle path, rather than making the inland detour via Maentwrog. However, as the Coast path is now immediately alongside a main road, walkers may well prefer to follow the original route, which, although well inland, is a very attractive alternative. Refer to the Wales Coast Path website maps for the new route."
Day 8 Machynlleth to Borth
There is a community café and shop, in the village of Tre'r-Ddol; Siop Cynfelyn. http://www.cletwr.com/en/shop.php
The major landslip referred to in the sidebar text on page 137 has been repaired, and the main coastal route has now reopened.
A permanent routechange has been made at Fairbourne. This can be seen on Map 47 on the Wales Coast Path website.
The Path now continues along the seafront south of Fairbourne, rather than following the road through the settlement. It passes under the railway, goes left along the A493 and then turns right in 0.5km up a minor road, rejoining the original route in 500m.
While this revised route includes a longer section beside the sea, it is all on road. The original route uses rights of way and is still walkable.
Cardigan Island Farm Park
Although published OS maps show the proposed route of the coast path running along the drive of the farm park, readers should note that – should this route become available – it will run parallel to the drive in the field to the east, not along the drive itself, as currently illustrated on the map on p150. See a revised map here.
Cicerone and John Jones reiterate that the proposed route, as described on p151, remains exactly that for now. When any further information is released about the route, it will be published here. Readers are reminded that the interim route, as described in the guide and illustrated by the orange main route line, must be followed until updated information is available and published here.
