Cambrian Way Accommodation

Cambrian Way Accommodation and Other Services

RambleFest lists details of Cambrian Way accommodation, Camping, Pubs, where to eat, maps and guidebooks, and public transport. We include contact info, and website and location links.


The Cambrian Way is a 275 mile walk connecting Cardiff in South Wales to Conwy on the North Wales Coast, and involves a total of just over 60,000 feet of ascent.
Consequently, it should not be undertaken lightly. It requires, at the very least, good navigational skills.
The Cambrian Way is a first-class walk through some of the most remote areas of Britain, and will appeal to those who prefer the open moor and high ground. We advise reading as much information as possible before tackling the walk.
Please see our Cambrian Way Mileage and Services Table (below) for the places visited on the Cambrian Way. Click a location to open the page displaying accommodation, camping, pub and restaurant information for that location. An Ordnance Survey map at 1:25,000 scale is included for each location; once opened, the map can be dragged and re-scaled.

Notes on Cambrian Way Accommodation

We have listed Cambrian Way accommodation for each location in our Cambrian Way Mileage and Services Table (below). Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accomodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Cambrian Way accommodation recommendations.

Cambrian Way Restaurants and Pubs

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. We have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants and their proximity to the Cambrian Way, especially regarding whether pubs serve real ale and/or food. But restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.

Cambrian Way Photographs Etc

We would like to show as many photographs of the Cambrian Way as possible. There is always room for your photographs and walk logs – just email them to us. Alternatively, if you have them online you can send us the link.
George Tod has excellent pictures.
