Bessie is world renowned as an amazing character that has run her pub in the Gwaun all of her life. Bessie and her pub is a very rare cultural experience for only those who understand the authenticity of someone being utterly themselves and who do not give a * what anyone else thinks. She runs the valley and is respected highly. Do only use the back door to her house. Do not dare sit in HER armchair by the fire. Be honoured if she teases you or asks pertinent questions. Beer is excellent. No other good options. She sometimes closes the doors after "closing time" and continues on if the locals are playing music or if it is the local New Year celebrations on the Julian calendar. (Hen Gallen)

Our hugely precious Mountain of Angels. St. Brynach lived on the mountain for 30 days and nights and spoke with Angels as you can as well, if you climb up there and get quiet. Astounding 360 views, over the profoundly indented coastline. Wild moors with many horses, ponies, sheep, and a few donkeys and cattle that enjoy the huge public beautiful space. Great for hiking, painting, meditations, photography, mountain biking and picnics. Many come to this area just for this magic mountain.

This is a rare memorable experience. If you do just one thing when you come to The Old Rectory then this is IT! You will never forget it!

They have walked over my legs! gannet s, razorbills, owls, basking sharks, oyster catcher chicks. Take the ferry from Marloes and go very early if you can for a full day.

Spectacular Slate Cliffs, rocks. Huge rock arch in the sea. One of the most spectacular walks of any coastline is right here. Walk 15 mins west along the Coast path and reach Witches Cauldron. It was a huge round cave that collapsed, now leaving a cove, often with baby seals in cut off from the sea except by a small archway in the rocks. This is memorable to swim through if you are brave. There is also an impressive blow hole and caves. The rock formations are so very unusual and sculptural. A must!.
