Moylegrove
The pretty little village of Moylegrove, the centre of which is made up of a tumble of traditional painted cottages, grey stone chapels and two stone river bridges, lies on the unspoiled North Pembrokeshire coast 6 miles south of the small historic market town of Cardigan on the river Teifi.

Within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it lies at the confluence of two small rivers, (the principle of which is the Awen, which appropriately means to muse or contemplate) at the base of a delightful wooded valley that leads to the
National Trust owned Ceibwr Bay just 15 minutes walk away.
The Bay, parts of which are designated Sites if Special
Scientific Interest, is much treasured as the village beach and valued as a great environmental and geological asset. Its natural and unspoiled state is jealously guarded by the community".

The village has a rich heritage (see history) as evidenced by the Victorian chapels and the beautiful old church of St. Andrews overlooking the village atop the hill and looking further into the past - the presence in the surrounding countryside of standing stones and old burial grounds.

Once in times past busy with lime and slate, Ceibwr Bay like the village itself is now sleepy, untouched and very peaceful. It lies conveniently between the beaches of Poppit Sands, 7 miles to the North at the picturesque mouth of the River Teifi overlooking Cardigan Island , while 4 miles to the South is Newport Beach at the mouth of the Nevern overlooking the beautiful Newport Bay .

Moylegrove is probably best known today as a delightful access point for the walker to the 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coastal Path whose Northern end begins 7 miles up the coast at St Dogmaels and follows the coastline to the county’s southern extremity 180 stunning miles away at Amroth.

An added benefit to the walker is its proximity also to the Preseli hills which come down to touch the coast at Newport . Walking these hills is so quiet you could be forgiven for thinking the Preseli’s have yet to be discovered and in fact you wouldn’t be far wrong.

For those who seek a haven of peace and quiet, clean air, sharp colours, prolific marine and bird wildlife, a slower pace of living amongst friendly and hospitable people, or just wish to experience that relaxed feeling of getting away from it all, Moylegrove and its un-spoiled surroundings is a place that’s very hard to beat at just about any time of the year.
