Llanbedrog to the Warren - Wales Coast Path Circular Walk

This is a 4 mile circular walk with a leg to the beach at Abersoch. It passes through woodland, open limestone moor, a sandy beach and some quiet lanes. It takes in a church, an art gallery and some fine statues. Start by parking your car at the National Trust car park in Llanbedrog, visit the nearby St Peter’s church and then enter the grounds of Plas Glyn y Weddw which has a grade 1 art gallery, a good bookshop and a wonderful cafe. Walk past the new outdoor theatre and follow the Quarryman’s Trail sign which will lead you through the Winllan Woods and on to the Iron Man Statue.

St Peter's was badly knocked about by Cromwell's forces, but is now beautifully cared for.
Plas Glyn y Weddw, with tearoom in conservatory. Entry is free.

The path climbs up from the Plas into the woodland behind.

There are fine views over the beach.

Superb views over the bay towards Pwllheli in the east.

The Iron Man Statue.
Dense vegetation has been removed in recent work.
Fine views towards the Cilan Headland and Abersoch.

The path takes you over the mynydd and then inland a little, before dropping down to the sea .

The route to the sea is clearly marked as this is the Wales Coast Path.
This is the sea lane with very little traffic.
The lane takes you to the sandy beach of Ti'r Mynydd, often known as the Warren beach.

This quiet lane goes all the way back to Llanbedrog.

This is where you re-enter the village. If in need of refreshment Glyn y Weddw Inn is on the hill to the left.
