At the start of this month, my friends, boyfriend and I made a 4 hour+ car journey to the lovely coastal village of Tresaith, for a weekend in Wales. We arrived late morning on a Friday and left late Monday afternoon. Have a read to see what we got up to and all the lovely things Wales has to offer.
Day one – April 5th 2013
We stayed at B&B called ‘The Ship Inn‘ which sat right on the beach. The B&B only has four rooms, though they’re all front facing, meaning whatever room you have, you get to benefit from the beautiful beach views.
Originally we were very sceptical about eating, because there had been some terrible reviews left on Tripadvisor. However, what we found out on our first day, was that since the start of the year the B&B has been taken over by new owners and they have certainly turned the place around, the food was delicious (but more on that later).
It’s only a small B&B, so parking can be very competitive. We arrived about midday, when all the locals came for lunch, so unfortunately there weren’t any spaces. However, at the top of the hill there’s a field for parking, which only charges £2.50 all day. So we stuck the car there and walked back down.
We arrived a little before our rooms were ready, so we sat in there and had a few drinks. The place isn’t too badly priced… for two pints of Peroni, one Archers & Lemonade and a Southern Comfort & Lemonade came to about £14.
We sat there for about an hour, chatting and looking out the window when we were told our rooms were ready (there was also a space in the car park by then, so we quickly grabbed the car – parking is also free by the way). The rooms are lovely, great size, clean and all with en-suite bathrooms. We had fantastic weather and the views from our room to boot (see image above).
Although sunny, the sea was rough as you like and it was very windy, so we all ran down to the beach to have an explore. At either end of the sandy beach is a lot of rock face, perfect for exploring and climbing. We were all enjoying ourselves until a huge wave came along and soaked us. However, it was so windy we were dry within a matter of minutes.
On the other side of the beach to where we were was a huge steep hill, which we walked up and is the perfect viewing point for some spectacular views of the village and the beach.
Well and truly feeling the cold from the wind at this point (it was about 5pm), we headed back to the B&B for some dinner.
We’d booked our table before heading out (just as well too because the place was packed with diners). For me there wasn’t much on the menu I liked (lots of fish!) But was there that I liked was delicious!
