Holiday in Wales - Shortlands Farm

June 2nd

We got off by 9:30 for the long drive. Once we got into Wales we left the rain behind but the wind was very strong. We stopped at a lay-by in the Wye valley for lunch in Morag.
We arrived at Shortlands Farm CL (Certificated Location) at about 4:15. I got soaked from a poor connection to the tap while filling up with drinking water! The site has a spacious field, fairly level, and is just a short walk from the coast.

After a cup of tea and setting up we walked the 1/2 mile to the Druidstone Hotel for a drink. Lyn cooked dinner of pie and mash which we ate in Morag.

We woke to a sunny and much calmer morning. After toast for breakfast we walked the coastal path to Broad Haven (2.5 miles). We had a coffee in the village and then, while Lyn read her Kindle and walked Button, I walked around the beach taking a few photos.

We went back to the cafe where we had had cooffee for our lunch - a huge portion of fish and chips!
We had met a dog walker on the coast path who had suggested that we walk back via Haroldstone Woods so, after initial difficulty in finding the path, we took that route. Button loved walking through the woods.
The path climbed steadily until we came out by a small church, St Madoc in the Ferns. After a short road walk we took a footpath across the fields back to Druidstone. We had a lazy afternoon sitting and reading followed by pork pie for tea.
