Walk Details
We’re starting our walk today from the car park in Llangoed. From here we cross the bridge, turn right (past the waymarker) along a concrete drive. At the end of the buildings we take a right, along a grassy track until we come to a metal gate. Here we head off to the left, along an obvious path through the woodland until we reach a road.

Here we turn left, cross over the bridge (noticing the 1863 date stone) and look for the footpath sign that’s about 25 yards ahead on the right. It’s a narrow path that leads down into a caravan park. Bear left towards a surfaced road – where this divides we’re heading right (the waymarker is almost hidden in a bush!). You’re aiming towards the stile that’s situated between two caravans.

As you cross the field you’ll see some white chimney stacks in the distance – we’re aiming towards Cichle (tall obelisk on the distant horizon) to locate an intervening stile. We cross the ensuing field in line with the obelisk, and exit at a ladder stile before turning right along the narrow road.

Follow this road for nearly a mile then turn left along the driveway of Tan-y-Coed. We’ll pass between the main buildings to a waymarked gate, then go straight on passing through a second gate. Curve right, between gorse bushes, seeking a gate on higher ground, then aim towards a strategically placed waymark in the next field. Take a moment to enjoy the view here – it’s stunning!

From here we head upwards passing through a wooded area, then keeping close to the left boundary, cross a field and curve left around the white painted farmhouse, departing along the uneven access track, ignoring the turn to Bod Feddau. Where the road surface changes, we swing right towards a tiny church behind a white bungalow and ladder stile on the right. Crossing the field to another stile near the barn, we then proceed towards a tiny gate, and walk straight ahead (boundary to right) to locate another ladder stile – and the road where we turn right. Immediately before a dwelling on the left, hop over a stile (waymark) and walk in a straight line across several fields, before passing to the right side of a large farmhouse, which has yet more stunning views.

Leave along the access road, and at the main road turn left, then right, towards the church. Carry on beyond the church and then leave the road on the right, at a signpost situated beyond Ty Mawr. We walk along a green swathe and cross a ladder stile. Then keeping close to the right hand boundary, look for a gate, which has been carefully positioned at the distant angle.

Now keep left to waymarkers on boundary and exit the field at another gate. Veer left for a few paces, before turning right, uphill, between the gorse bushes, to merge onto an uneven track. This track merges with the road. Turn left and follow the road back into Llangoed where we started.
