Reasons for trip

The TV programme Countryfile regularly features places in Wales so we were pleased to see Cwm-yr-Eglwys along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Thankfully, it wasn’t cold enough for icicles on the bench like in the programme, but we were still thankful for our waterproofs tucked away in the boot of the car.

A beautiful blue sky and bright sunshine so a perfect day to see the stunning end wall of the tiny church, all that’s left after the storm in 1886 that washed away half of the graveyard and the bulk of the church. It is officially designated as an area where there are no formal sea defences so that it is left to stand whatever the sea throws at it. You can only admire the small community that lives in the village, checking whatever damage appears along the existing sea wall and fixing it as best they can. As the lady on the TV said, they always take a small bucket with a bit of cement in it when they go for a walk!

The car park is £2 (drop the money in the box by the gate) and a friendly lady serves tea, coffee and home-made flapjacks from a little kiosk. We visited in April before the real holiday season starts so we only had to reverse for one other car along the single-track lane off the A487. Not sure what happens if it is busy as it will be impossible to pass once there are two or three cars close to each other. It is worth a visit though, and you could always walk to the bay along the coastal path rather than trying to drive down there.
