Easter is a fabulous time to get away with the family and enjoy the great Welsh outdoors as it bursts into life.

There are plenty of ‘eggscellent’ activities to keep the whole family entertained this Easter at Llanerchaeron. Nothing says Easter better than an Easter egg hunt. Set in this beautiful National Trust estate, you can find chocolate eggs, feed the lambs, do a spot of gardening and get creative with a craft activity.
You’re spoilt for choice with coastal destinations in Ceredigion. Check out the rock pools at Aberporth, enjoy the long stretch of golden sands at Aberystwyth or visit New Quay, a Blue Flag beach perfect for building sandcastles or setting up camp for the day on, with water sports and boat trips available.
Cenarth village lies on both sides of the river Teifi and has a mystical, magical feel to it. You half expect a little fairy to flutter by as you meander through the Cenarth falls walk, decorated with rare mosses, buzzing with wildlife and showered in dappled sunlight through the trees. Whilst you’re here visit the coracle museum, and travel through time to the fishing history of the river. This is one of the few remaining areas where fishermen still use and make Coracles with traditional methods dating back to the Bronze Age.
Journey on the steam train to Devils Bridge and admire the outstanding waterfalls as you pass through breath-taking scenery, especially beautiful in the springtime.
Visit Lampeter for food festivals, craft fairs, and farmers markets. The perfect stop for fresh local produce followed by tea and cake in a cafe.
Cardigan has a reputation as the creative hub of Ceredigion. Full of artists, musicians, artisan bakers, and fantastic food, there’s a quirky, charismatic charm to this old market town.
A bustling nature reserve in nearby Cilgerran, where you can see owls, birds, otters, frogs, dragonflies and more. Pack a picnic, follow a trail and enjoy the spring flora and fauna all around you, or visit the amazing glasshouse restaurant on site.
Whilst you’re in Cardigan check out Cardigan Castle, steeped in 900 years of history and newly renovated and restored.
National Dolphin Day is the 14th April and Cardigan Bay is home to large populations of dolphins and porpoises. Keep an eye out for splashes and it’s highly likely you’ll spot one of these mesmerising cetaceans.
