Newcastle Emlyn before the Bank Holiday rush.......

The weather has failed to live up to the forecasts - blue skies for much of the time but a cold wind and odd shower.
We stopped in Bromyard for coffee, Brecon for tea (where it did rain!)
We need another trip there -the "Cupcake Shop" does wonderful teas!
We have to walk to the castle ruins and visit The Mund today, before planning a journey home.

Newcastle Emlyn boasts two of the Welsh rugby internationals, the best Indian restaurant in Wales(4th in UK), The Jasmine, and the last Welsh dragon died here - prior to our arrival.
Not road kill, as far as I know.

The hotel is family run and excellent as is the food.
Booked months ago, the hotel matched a Travelzoo deal - highly recommended.

Yesterday we walked along exciting footpaths to Cenarth from where we caught a bus to Cardigan.
Then we caught the bus the 10 miles back to Newcastle Emlyn and pottered around one of the antique centres before collapsing prior to a hot bath then dinner.
A good day.

Beautiful area.
Holes in bridge for overflow?
