Cwm Yr Eglwys’s and it’s scenic sandy cove makes for a firm favourite with those ‘in the know'. This wonderfully sheltered hamlet, right on the shore, has a micro-climate many degrees warmer than other sections of this coastline. The trees and flowers seem bigger, brighter and have a longer flowering period.
Ideal for walkers, cyclists and photographers, there are a variety of circular walks incorporating the coast, country and nearby Dinas village. One shorter route is across the cliffs and through a wooded valley which even incorporates a pathway designed for the disabled.
Dinas is a thriving village under a mile from Cwm Yr Eglwys bay and well served with shops, pubs, a garage and a tasty Fish & Chip shop. Alternatively, Newport with its range of shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries, as well as the glorious, sandy beach where the river Nevern meets the sea, is only a short drive away.
Cwm-yr-Eglwys is a petite, eye-catching cove popular with families, kayakers and sea swimmers. Overlooking the picturesque shingle and pebble beach are the remains of the 12th Century church of St Brynach's, which was destroyed during a fierce storm in 1859. To find Cwm-yr-Eglwys follow the narrow, twisting road off the A487 just to the east of Dinas Cross.
