There is plenty to do in our area.
A visit to Ceredigion offers so much with its idyllic Blue Flag family-friendly beaches for those with young children, impressive coastal paths for the outdoor enthusiast and explore the towns, cafés, castles and shops.
Cardigan Bay is one of the best places around the UK to see dolphins. Regular dolphin and wildlife boat trips are available down in New Quay. More information on the dolphins is available on the Visit Wales site available here.
Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre based in New Quay is a great place to visit to learn more about marine wildlife and also have many events running throughout the year.
Another ‘must see’ place for wildlife enthusiasts is Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forest just outside Aberystwyth with daily feeding (2pm in winter and 3pm in summer) which can attract up to 150 Red Kites. There is the Barcud Trail (an easy access route around the lake) and the café offer fantastic views of this spectacle. There is also a bird hide overlooking the feeding area. RSPB Cymru staff and volunteers are on site most days throughout the summer to answer questions about red kites and other birds and wildlife at Bwlch Nant yr Arian. There is more for bird lovers at RSPB Ynyshir and also the Osprey Centre in the same area.
There is also the Welsh Wildlife Centre based in Cilgerran near Cardigan which is great for both adults and children of all ages with adventure play areas, Nature Trails and indoor play activities.
Being a coastal region, there is definitely plenty to do out on the water just down the road from us in New Quay to include:
– swimming (many beaches have lifeguards)
– stand-up paddle boarding
If water is not your thing there are a number of mountain bike trails and skills park suitable for Beginners up to Advanced up in Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forest.
The going can be challenging at times and you need to select the right route for your party as some of the coastal walks are not ideal for families. However, there is plenty of literature available to help you make the best choices. And for breathtaking beauty and sense of space, the Coastal Path is simply fabulous.
There is plenty to do nearby to keep everyone occupied from National Trust properties such as Llanerchaeron near Aberaeron or further afield Dinefwr near Llandeilo, the castle at Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn to picturesque towns such as Llandeilo or stunning coastal or river scenery like Cenarth Falls. If you are ever stuck for ideas, our reception staff are always happy to help.
