A THREE-WAY search with a Welsh flavour is taking place in Saundersfoot on Saturday.

It takes place during the Saundersfoor Cawl Factor 2016 - a special one-day event to attract out-of-season trade to the village.

Alongside the popular Cawl Cooking Championship of the World….and Elsewhere, with its quest for the best dish of the tasty traditional delicacy, the day also features a Dragon Trail and a treasure hunt.

The Dragon Trail aims to track down the cuddly creatures hiding in shops and businesses around the village, while the table-top treasure hunt will launch the new Saundersfoot Bay map which is being promoted by Cawl Factor organiser, Saundersfoot Chamber for Tourism.

Said Chamber chairman, Phil Odley: “Our cawl trail has been a massively-popular attraction for a number of years, and this year we decided to put it at the centre of our Cawl Factor event.

“The reaction from everyone has been great, and it’s proving to be a big draw to the village, with virtually all our available accommodation fully booked.”

|There are six stop-offs on the cawl trail - contest regulars The Marina, The Mulberry, Philly’s and The Old Chemist Inn will be joined by newcomers, the Regency Hall and the Salvage Bar. Commemorative cawl bowls are available at the Regency Hall, where there is free admission to an Artisan Showcase, featuring local craftspeople; a chance to admire some creatures brought along by Saundersfoot’s Reptile Experience and enjoy the live music from Buskers’ Corner.

There are also quick crafting sessions for children as well as face-painting (small charge applies).

The hall will be open from 10am to 4pm, with the cawl trail taking place between 11am and 2pm. Cawl bowls, which are £5, go on sale at the Regency Hall from 10am.
