Moylegrove, Cardigan & Llwyngwair Manor
When my Gran and Auntie told us that they’d decided to sell the caravan at Llwyngwair Manor Holiday Park at the end of the year, my boyfriend and I immediately made plans to book one last trip. And in true Dave and Amy style, we opted to go on my birthday weekend – mainly because Dave’s caravan fry ups are the best, but more on that in another post!
The caravan and Llwyngwair Manor Park holds many, many memories for me and my family – again, I’ll be sharing more about this in a different post – and so, the fact that it was being sold meant the weekend would definitely be an emotional one. But we arrived late on the Thursday full of excitement for the long weekend ahead.
We woke the next morning to the rain tapping on the caravan windows. Determined to not let it put a dampener on our day, Dave and I headed out for a delicious breakfast at Blas at Fronlas.
Arriving at Moylegrove with full tummies 20 minutes later and the bad weather had eased slightly. Still, on went the coats and we headed out in to the drizzle. Moylegrove is a small town that has some excellent coastal views at Ceibwr nearby. Dave and I made our way to the edge of the cliffs and took in the scene before us.
If anything, the weather had made the stop even more interesting as the landscape looked moody and brooding. And we were incredibly lucky because the rain did ease whilst we were there! I had hoped we’d also spot a seal but alas, it wasn’t meant to be. OK, not the only downside as I’m definitely a sun worshipper but it was still pretty warm and refreshing!
When we’d had enough of the coastal cliffs, Dave drove us in to Cardigan where we went for a little wander. In a bid to avoid the rain, we decided to go for a drink at The Grosvenor. We’d visited a couple of years prior and enjoyed sitting in the corner, watching the world go by on the river outside.
With more storms on the way, we had chosen not to make any plans for the afternoon. Instead, we spent it at the caravan and Llwyngwair Manor. During the one hour where the rain had subsided, we took a walk through the park and up to the Manor.
The Llwyngwair Manor had been transformed since our last visit. It looked brilliant! It was modern, fresh but still held the traditional air about it. We ordered drinks from the bar and settled down in the comfy chairs to watch a bit of the golf.
After one final drink from Llwyngwair Manor, it was time to go back to the caravan. We settled down for the evening and watched films, ate a delicious picnic spread and played games. Dave’s brothers had kindly bought me Exit the Game: Abandoned Cabin and Codenames Duet for my birthday. Although it took some time to get used to how to play it, Exit the Abandoned Cabin was brilliant. So good in fact that we’ve already done another one! Codenames Duet was also great fun! Codenames is one of my favourite games and it was good to have a 2-player version.
Despite the rain, it was the perfect first day from the last weekend at the beloved caravan. It also set us up nicely for our day in St. Davids on the Saturday…
