An amazing place where the weather can change from one hour to the next, countryside that is stunning and is only outdone by the people. If you ever fancy an adventure this is a good place to start and if you like a challange theres always the Beautifully Brutal Pen Llyn Ultras.
The beauty of Dinas powys is that it's a small, Welsh yet affluent community. It is unusual in that in Wales it is both a Tory AND plaid Cymru stronghold which is unusual. It has a dilapidated castle at it's heart which is almost impossible to find and a delightful welsh village centre with deli, village hall, community centre, three rather nice pubs, an indian takeaway and restaurant and two chinese takeaways and a fish and chip shop. Many of the villagers speak Welsh. Every year it holds village fairs with several competitors taking part. It's music festival, held annually, has some of the best artists Wales has to offer. One of the highlights of the year is the Christmas Dickensian evening usually held in the first week of December. The whole village square is taken up with stalls, games and the local orchestra. Dinas Powys boasts some of the finest houses in Wales. Charlotte Church resides there. The newer part of Dinas Powys beyond the railway station is known as 'The Murch' which boasts a brand new health centre and pharmacy as well as shops and small supermarket. It is situated equidistant between the city centre of Cardiff and the town of Barry (home of 'Gavin and Stacey')- 4 miles either way!
The whole area was beautiful could not say one place was better than the other . dined at Bryncynan Inn good choice of food. travelling around the area was easy if you have your own transport although the roads are narrow. great scenery for walks and photography. The whole area is good for tranquillity scenery and the countryside.
Lovely walks from B and B . Do visit Ty Coch, worth the walk from Nat.Trust car park and spent a couple of hours over light lunch on beach by sea surrounded by baby sparrows. For dinner try the Ship at Edern, only 15mins drive from B and B . Charming waitresses, good food and pleasant atmosphere. Also the Whistling Sands cove. Small but efficient,comfortable cafe for coffee,light lunch or tea and cake on beach.. A little walk but easily done. Take a stick if short slope from car park difficult. John and muff

Dinas is well situated for exploring both coasts of the Lleyn Peninsular. The beaches on the north coast are delightful for children....safe and accessible. Walking around the headland near Aberdaron is spectacular The Ship in Edern is great for food with generous portions and an imaginative menu
