Itinerary

(DAY 1) Monday 11th September

Today's journey includes some beautiful countryside as we travel through the Gloucestershire Cotswolds and rural Herefordshire. Entering Wales we skirt the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. By late afternoon we reach our Hotel in a stunning location on the Pembrokeshire coastline. We stay for four nights, with dinner and breakfast included.

(DAY 2) Tuesday 12th September

We follow the coast to the university town of Aberystwyth. Next we take a journey through the spectacular Rheidol Valley by Narrow-Gauge Steam Trainon one of "The Great Little Trains of Wales". The 11¾-mile journey between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge takes approximately one hour, as the train overcomes a height difference of 600ft, affording superb views of the Valley below. We may take the train in the opposite direction, depending on the 2017 timetable.

(DAY 3) Wednesday 13th September

Enjoy a full day drive through the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Our tour includes St. David's, the smallest cathedral city in Britain. The Cathedral dominates what is really only a small attractive village, and was a popular pilgrimage destination throughout the Middle Ages, still attracting thousands of visitors today.

(DAY 4) Thursday 14th September

A shorter day today as we visit Llanerchaeron. This elegant Georgian villa, owned bythe National Trust, is set in the wooded Aeron Valley. Remarkably unaltered for 200 years, the estate includes a farm, walled gardens and a lake. Later you can relax at the Hotel, spend some time in the attractive town of Cardigan, or take an optional Adventure Wildlife Boat Tripin Cardigan Bay, which is the largest Bay in the British Isles. It is home to a rich variety of wildlife, including bottlenose dolphins, porpoises, Atlantic grey seals and a wide variety of bird species. Further details of the boat trip will be sent nearer the time.

(DAY 5) Friday 15th September

Leaving Pembrokeshire we return via the Severn Bridge, making a stop for lunch in elegant Marlborough. We reach the local area by late afternoon/early evening for taxis to your door.
