Activities and Family Days Out

A series of headlands shelter small fishing villages and clean, sandy award-winning beaches and rocky coves, ideal for swimming, watersports and fishing. The exquisite coastal path has walking to suit all fitness levels. Move away from the coast, however, and you are greeted with a mix of countryside that suits cyclists, ramblers and anglers. Ceredigion provides you with the opportunity to truly 'get away from it all' particularly in the wild and beautiful Cambrian Mountains, where you'll rarely meet another person even in the height of summer.

There are endless opportunities for walkers of all levels of experience and fitness (
Walking in Wales). The spectacular cliff top walks along the Ceredigion Coast Path which frequently afford glimpses of seals, porpoise, dolphins and marine birds are not to be missed.

There are also delightful inland walks such as the Ystwyth Trail through the river valleys of the Teifi, Aeron, Ystwyth and Rheidol. To truly 'get away from it all' visit the wild and beautiful Cambrian Mountains, where you'll rarely meet another person even in the height of summer.

Marine Life: Cardigan Bay, a Special Area of Conservation, is renowned for its rich and varied marine life, in particular the celebrated bottlenose dolphins. A Bay to Remember offers adventure wildlife boat trips of Cardigan Bay and the Heritage Coastline.

Birdwatching: West Wales is probably most famous for its flourishing population of red kites; one or two are often seen gliding close to Pencnwc cottage. Good locations for birdwatching include: Mwnt or Llangrannog for coastal species such as chough, peregrine and stonechat. For waders then visit the estuaries of Nevern and Teifi and for wildfowl it has to be the Teifi estuary or the Teifi Marshes.
