During the summer months the beaches on Cardigan Bay change their rules about dogs on the beaches. From around May to September they are generally not permitted leaving you with a very hot and tired dog, and no sea to play around in. However, here at The Falcondale we have discovered a gem.
There is a fabulous option for you and your best friend on Newport Beach (not the one next to Cardiff, but Newport in North Pembrokeshire). North Beach on Newport sands is open all year for Rover to frolic around on. Follow signs for Newport golf club, and you’ll soon come across the car park and toilets.
A mile of sandy beach and surf for you and your pooch, and even access to the Coastal Path should you wish to stretch your legs even further. Only a 10-minute walk from the shops and cafes of Newport village.
Lisa and Mark took Snoopy, Macsen and Milly to test it out on a snowy day in March with great success and very tired dogs at the end of the day. Highly recommended!
