We are extremely lucky that we are within walking distance to a number of lovely pubs. One of our favourate walks is to Abercych where you can visit the ‘locals’ Penrhiw Inn or head on an extra 100m down the hill to the Nags Head right next to the river Cych. The walk takes about 40 minutes.
Starting from the dogs field head through the gate and into the field next to Owl Cottage. Following the fence with the wood on your right, head down the field until you come to a gate at the bottom.
This gate will take you into the woods where the path will take you across a small footbridge across Nant Morw and onto a forestry track.
Turn right onto the forestry track and follow this track for 3/4 of a km, winding you way between the trees. Keep your eyes open for the birds as you do, with Buzzards and Kites overhead and the secretive Jay often seen.
Just after you pass the small sewage works on your left the forestry track will end as you hit theminor road that runs through upper Abercych. Opposite the track is a house that sells lovely cakes, jams and chutneys with an honesty box (so take some change).
Turn right and follow the road past the cottages and houses that make up Abercych. Just before you reach a T junction, where this minor road meets the B4332, you will pass the Penrhiw Inn on your left. This ‘locals’ pub has great reviews on trip advisor with one of the friendliest barmen in Wales https://whatpub.com/pubs/PEM/2/penrhiw-inn-abercych
A few yards further on you will meet the main road. Cross the road and turn left, down the hill towards the river for another 100 yards or so and you will come to the river. On your right is the nags Head, with its lovely riverside garden and great food. https://nagsheadabercych.co.uk/en/home/
The walk is just over 2.5km and takes about 45 minutes.
