Penbryn Beach National Trust Wales

One of Ceredigion’s best-kept secrets

This beautifully secluded sandy cove lies down leafy lanes, lined with flower-covered banks. There is a local cafe called The Plwmt Tart which sells coffees and cakes, a great place to pop into after a walk on the beach.  They sold soups and lovely toasties and homemade brownies and cakes.

We went during winter so it was pretty cold but the kids loved the freedom of the beach and the space to run around.  I can imagine in the summer it’s absolutely beautiful to spend the day there making sand castles and running into the sea.

 The National Trust car park at the top and costs £4 per day to park or free to members, then a walk of about 5 minutes down to the beach.
