Tucked away in beautiful West Wales, Ceredigion is a dreamy holiday spot. One of the least ‘spoilt’ regions in the UK, this is definitely a place to mark on your map. The region is large yet sparsely populated, lending it a sense of tranquillity and calm. From breathtaking natural beauty, such as Cardigan Bay and the Ceredigion Coastal Path, and a collection of Blue Flag beaches to quaint market towns like Lampeter and coastal villages such as Llangrannog, there’s something for all the family here in Ceredigion, Wales. What’s more, Ceredigion is classed as one of the great cheese-producing areas in Europe, meaning a visit will be a delight for the tastebuds too.
When it comes to adventure, Ceredigion certainly does not disappoint. Keen hikers will want to head to the Cambrian Mountains, one of the last remote wilderness areas left in Southern Britain. The 60-mile-long Ceredigion Coast Path is also a great chance to discover the local Welsh towns and villages, as well as the wildlife and flora. The local area is not short on beautiful islands either: Cardigan Island, Ramsey Island and Skomer Island (the latter two located over the border in Pembrokeshire) all make for excellent day trips. Meanwhile, the gorgeous Teifi Valley is definitely worth a visit, as are the neighbouring counties of Carmarthenshire and Powys, over in South Wales and East Wales respectively.
Culture lovers will delight in the vast array of cute little towns and villages this region has to offer. From seaside spots, such as Aberystwyth, Aberporth, Cwm Tydu and New Quay to sleepy countryside havens, like Penrhiwllan, Swyddffynnon and Llangeitho, you certainly won’t be short of places to visit here. What’s more, there are a whole host of activities on offer too. From horse riding along the beach to visiting Oakwood Theme Park, the options abound here in Mid Wales. Housed in a gorgeous old Edwardian theatre, Ceredigion Museum is the ideal spot for a rainy day. Meanwhile, boasting the longest sandy beach in Ceredigion, Borth is a great choice for a sunny afternoon. Nature lovers will adore Mwnt, where you can glimpse dolphins, seals and other aquatic wildlife. Gwbert is the perfect place to catch a beautiful sunset, while over in Pembrokeshire, Machynlleth hosts a busy market every Wednesday.
Those looking to book the finest Ceredigion Accommodation will certainly find it here at Cottage Holidays. From the best Ceredigion self-catering holiday cottages to remote wood cabins complete with hot tubs, you’ll find options to suit every kind of group here. If you’re searching for a quiet, sleepy spot then a pretty little village like Goginan, Llanrhystud, Henllan or Llanon should suit. Alternatively, those craving a bit more hustle and bustle should head to the charming towns of Aberaeron or Newcastle Emlyn. Part of the Wales Coast Path, Tresaith is the ideal spot for ramblers; while Newport is ideal for outdoor activities, being framed by a mountain, an estuary and numerous beaches. Finally, located on the border between Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, and close to Pembrokeshire, the tiny hamlet of Cenarth is perfectly positioned for exploring the best of the local area.
