Having just experienced yet another fantastic day with Tim and Corinne can I recommend the following itinerary for a brilliant day out from Glebe House? It involves a bit of driving, but takes in wildlife, fishing, spectacular varied scenery, pre-historic architecture and wonderful beaches. The precise itinerary is up to you, but the furthest point is Newquay in Ceredigion. This is about 80 minutes away. You can travel there via Solva, St Davids and the pretty villages of Newport and Fishguard, or via the B road which leads from Haverfordwest across the Preselli Hills towards Cardigan. I would suggest going one way and returning via the other.
Newquay is probably the setting for Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood (and literary types will certainly be able to link some of the steep streets to this lyrical poem), but the main draw on this trip are the dolphins and fishing. There are some 300 bottle-nosed dolphins in Cardigan Bay, but Newquay has the biggest, tamest, population. Many people come on a targeted dolphin excursion, but most would do better to go ut with Epic Fishing (07989 496296). Tim and Corinne have simply the nicest sea fishing set-up I’ve ever come across and we’ve never failed to get good sightings (today – 28 May 2016 we were surrounded by about 12). Epic tailors its trips to the party and these are very child/beginner friendly. The boat takes up to 12 people, but they prefer slightly fewer, so a full-house at Glebe could constitute a personalised charter. Prices can vary according to the party, but the base point for a two-hour trip is £20 per adult and £10 for a child. On the way home (or out, depending on your itinerary), the wonderful beaches at Pen Bryn and Mynt (between Newquay and Cardigan) are some of the best in Wales.
One of the most remarkable parts of this tour, is Pentre Ifan, possibly the oldest manmade structure in Europe. This is located about two miles off the back road shortcut (B4329) which runs from Haverfordwest across the Presseli Hills to the coast road (A487) between Fisshguard and Cardigan. It is truly spectacular in any light, but dawn, dusk or brooding clouds work well . . .
