Our blog has been quiet because we have been away from Stallion Valley on holiday but it is nice to be home. Evan better when your daughter is staying for a couple of days with her dog Alfie.
Jane and I decided to take Alfie and our 2 the dogs out for a walk and have lunch in Cardigan.
We set off for our walk from Cilgerran Wildlife Centre, it’s in Teifi marshes on the Teifi River estuary and is managed by The South & South West Wales Wildlife Trust. It’s really good for bird watching and there are otters and badgers as well. The centre is just over 30 minutes’ drive, 20 miles away from our holiday cottages. It is free, has an excellent visitor centre & café and lots of easy, wheelchair friendly paths. Dogs are welcome on leads and car parking is £3 for the day.

Cardigan is just over a mile away on the "Wetlands Path”. Along the way we saw lots of wetlands birds including a heron fishing and several families of ducklings.
Cardigan is a busy picturesque town with a castle, market and historic harbour area. Boats trip are also on offer here as well as adventure days.
There are plenty of dog friendly restaurants. We chose a new one PizzaTipi, where they serve Pizzas I the evening and quiches at lunch time. Great food, superb salads, eat inside under the Tipi or outside on the river terrace. Dogs are made very welcome.
Suitably refreshed we enjoyed our walk back past the castle and over the town bridge back to the wildlife centre. The dogs enjoyed a good run, we had a relaxing walk, the chance to chat and a great lunch.

Stallion Valley has been designed to be properly dog friendly, and has a wide range of dog friendly facilties.
