Llansteffan Castle and beach

This is the third and final part of my Trip to Wales trio of posts. For those of you not so keen on Wales, you will be pleased to note that this week I will move onto pastures new aka err, Windsor. Well it is The Windsor Waffle, and there is a pandemic going on you know…

Llansteffan Castle sits upon a hill on the coast of Carmarthenshire. It is a superb castle, or remnants of, only accessible on foot by climbing up a steep hill. It is completely free of charge to the public as is the car park below (never in England does this occur my friends). Our only disappointment was that the ice cream kiosks beside the beach were shut either due to Covid or the season.

We enjoyed rambling around the ramparts.

Through the oval window…. you can see Worm’s Head at Rhossili in The Gower.

These are the portcullis slots and the “murder holes”. You pour hot oil and stuff onto your unwanted intruders here, well you used to anyway.

Baa baa black sheep.

It was a fabulous beach walk here, loved it!

Lots of jelly fish washed up.

So many shells… millions and millions of them.

Stunning views. And space. Lots and lots of space and very few people.

I loved the reflections going on here.

So that’s it. Back home from Wales and back to work tomorrow. Yikes. It’s going to be a challenging week. I wish you all a good one. Roast beef tonight.. provided Ocado turn up soon! xx

  1. Gail! This looks amazing. I’ll be checking out part one as I just hopped in when I got the notification for the second one. I really want to explore the UK some day. I also look foreword to part three. I hope all is well with you and I hope to return to writing myself sometime soon. It’s been a crazy time for Jas and I and I hope all is well with you!

    1. Hi Jordan, so great to hear from you. I miss your blog. Hope you write it again some day. UK holidays for us or none at all these days. This time last year it was the National Parks of Utah – a bit different! Arches was my favourite. And Bryce Canyon was so amazing too. Seems like another lifetime ago pre Covid.
