Ferryside Station – Ferryside DIRECTIONS

1. As you arrive at Ferryside be sure to exit into the village with the car park in front of you and not on the water side. The public toilets are on your right. The walk heads left along the road passing the Ferry Cabin and eventually the school. You are now following the Wales Coast Path (WCP), you’ll be on this for quite a while so keep an eye out for the yellow and blue markers.

2. Continue along Eva Terrace which becomes Carmarthen Road heading out of the village. You’ll be passing houses either side. Just after a small bridge be sure to bear left following the WCP signs. This single-track road brings you alongside the railway line and eventually into Bronyn Farm. As you reach the farm houses the route bears left and then right to head out the other side of the farm. You’ll eventually arrive at a road.

3. Bear right here still following the WCP. You now have quite a steep climb along this road until you reach a signed footpath on your right. Leaving the WCP take this path to drop down towards Iscoed Uchaf. As you reach the house the track drops down to pass through 2 gates and out the other side of the farm. Continue along this track to eventually take a gate into a yard outside a house. Take the kissing gate on your right into a field. Bear left diagonally across this field to reach a stile. Continue straight across the next field keeping to the left of the field. You’ll cross another stile as you continue straight ahead to drop slightly and reach a road.

4. Bear right here, and shortly after go left over a small bridge. Follow this road as it climbs up through woodland. Eventually you’ll have houses on your right. Just after these houses take the turning right. Follow this road as it starts to bring you back to the village. You’ll reach a T-Junction, bear right to arrive back at the car park.
