Tips from locals

After a walk on the beach, call into the beach cafe for a great coffee and snack

The most fantastic strip of golden sand, with fascinating rock pools at low tide.
It is safe to swim between the lifeguard's flags and although usually shallow and calm there is often enough swell to challenge even the most seasoned surfers. Even the highest tides do not completely cover the beach…

There are 2 beaches that are close to Top of the Woods and they are both spectacular. This is Dylan’s favourite beach because you can take dogs on all year round (in the summer it is restricted to the right-hand side of the beach). It has a great little café, wildlife sand dunes, long golden sands…

Closest beach to us, large stretch of sand with cafe and large carpark.

A local’s beach, popular in summer, but alway plenty of room. A lovely place to walk out of season.

Natural Feature
“A pretty, pebbly bay from which you can often see seals and other wildlife. Pwll Y Wrach (Witches Pool) is a short walk away on the coastal path from Rocket House heading South West and is surely one of the most dramatic spots in the whole of Wales! Follow the website link for the PDF of the whole walk including a stunning wooded glade.”

Other Great Outdoors
“Channel your inner Celtic Warrior! I always know when our visitors have been to Castell Henlly's, the kids come back with blue tribal face paint and in the meadows, everything becomes a bit ‘warrior’ and ‘tribes!’ They also tell me it is a brilliant fun day out!”
