September offers long walks, tasty cuisine and not forgetting an adrenaline filled sporting event!

With summer holidays coming to an end it doesn’t mean that the holiday season is over, in fact this September it’s far from over. Some people are now starting to look forward to the Autumn season. The long walks through the crunchy leaves, woollen jumpers, hot chocolate by an open fire…

The Cors Country House is situated in the perfect location for one of those autumnal walks. Did you know our quaint little Laugharne sits directly on the Wales Coastal Path? It’s the perfect location for walkers of various abilities, whether you decide to take the relatively short stroll along the path and just turn back on yourself, or continue on the various inland routes. The main coastal path route is 2 miles and will provide you with spectacular views of the River Taf, across to Gower and beyond.

Let’s not forget the historical Dylan’s Walk! Laugharne is well known for its connection to the famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, so much so, a 3 mile route is now mapped out and named after him. Dylan’s Walk to the north east is on relatively level ground for most of the way and is surfaced as far as Dylan’s writing shed and Boat House. Further along from here, there are fields and short uphill sections through rough farm tracks.

So what happens after that fun filled day out? For those who want to continue exploring, The Cors is situated within walking distance of some fantastic hidden food gems, see the Places to eat page for all our recommendations. Or is it back to the house for a home cooked family feast around the dining table?

The main question is after food, is it family snuggles in the cinema room with hot chocolate and popcorn, or a round of pool in the bar area with cocktails? How will your day end…
