Discovering the Welsh Coast with the support of NTWales

Yesterday, I needed to escape.
The thing now about escaping is that I can't imagine doing it alone.
And despite the fact it was throwing it down and the wind was high, we all put our coats on and went outside.
And we are fortunate.
Two minutes of walking and we are here.
The Welsh Coast.

This is my favourite place.
Why we moved here two years ago.

And a thirty minute lap of this part of the Wales Coastal Path and we are home.
Recharged. Exhausted. In this weather, exhilarated.
Whilst my favourite part of the Welsh coast is my favourite because it is home, there are many other wonderful places to seek out.

The National Trust cares for 157 miles of the Welsh coast alongside some of the best beaches, which are consistently voted some of the most beautiful anywhere in the world; beaches like Rhossili on Gower, Barafundle in Pembrokeshire, Penbryn in Ceredigion or Porth Oer (Whistling Sands) on Llŷn.

I have such vivid memories of Rhossili from the year of A-levels. Escaping Cardiff. The pressure of exams. And discovering Rhosseli to the soundtrack of Alanis Morrisette.

The National Trust has launched a coastal app on  Facebook, celebrating all that is great about our coastline.
You can enter this fantastic competition by popping on to the app and letting people know why you love your favourite National Trust place and you could win a day’s kayaking and / or coasteering for you and 4 of your friends with our qualified instructors at the amazing Stackpole Quay, Pembrokeshire.

The most original and inspiring comment will be chosen by Justin Albert, our Director on the 31st of October and the lucky winner has a year to claim their prize.
