Llwybr Pwll Cornel, Newport

Short Walk

CHARACTER: No stiles; unsurfaced country path with steep gradients in Berryhill wood.
LOOK OUT FOR: Semi ancient natural woodland and meadow habitats; views of the estuary, Carningli hill and the coast.

Llwybr Pwll Cornel is a footpath created in 2021 by the National Park Authority, with the permission of the respective landowners.

It is named after Pwll Cornel (corner pool) on the river Nyfer which is overlooked by the path. It follows the Nyfer through a varied landscape of oak woodland and meadow.

In itself it is a super walk, but it also provides links to the wider network of public paths in the valley, offering new walking opportunities.

The woodland section of the walk has some steep gradients but the walker is rewarded with some great views of the estuary, Carningli hill and the coastline down to Dinas Head.
