Ceredigion offers an unspoiled, rugged and varied landscape includes 60 miles of heritage coastline to the west. The Cambrian Mountains, a wild plateau, to the east and beautiful, undulating, lush countryside in between.
Even a drive along the Ceredigion’s coast road will take your breath away with views stretching across to Snowdonia National Park. There are gorgeous, traditional seaside towns and villages and beautiful award-winning, sandy beaches to explored along the way too. Aberaeron, the home of the Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs, is a great place to stop for a leg stretch and a honey ice cream. Further north, Aberystwyth is a fun and cultural city with iconic Victorian and Edwardian buildings, pier and beach while in the south of the county, Cardigan is a delightful mixing pot of artists and farmers. Mwnt, Tresaith, Penbryn, Borth, Poppit Sands, and Llangrannog are must-visit beaches.
The wildlife which calls this county home includes magnificent Red Kite in the uplands, delicious Sewin (Sea Trout) in the River Teifi and Razorbills and Kittiwakes along the coastline. Within Cardigan Bay dolphins, porpoise and Grey Seals play. Bwlch Nant Yr Arian is a Red Kite feeding station you can visit, and Ynyslas National Nature Reserve will enable you to get close to all sorts of other wonderful creatures and plant life.
Just some of the outdoor activities you can take part in within the county include fishing, wildlife watching boat trips, horse riding, and cycling. As to be expected with a county filled with such fabulous scenery, the walking is excellent. National Trust managed estate Llanerchaeron has a historic working farm and another estate, Hafod is recognised as one of the finest examples in Europe of a picturesque landscape. Sculpture Heaven is a fine garden which is recommended and AONB Devils Bridge Falls are also worth a visit. There is also plenty to do to satisfy the curious mind. The Small World Theatre in Cardigan usually has lots you can take part in and Aberwysth Arts Centre hosts some well-known names. The Magic Life Butterfly House and the Edwardian Vale Rheidol Steam Railway are also fun attractions for all the family.
