Cardigan/Ceredigion

The Cardigan/Ceredigion region is probably best known for its superb beaches and iconic harbour ports which make this stretch of coastline such a great place for a cottage holiday in Wales. It’s where Dylan Thomas was inspired to write some of his best work and with the Cambrian Mountains as the back drop you can relax and enjoy a region full of wildlife and natural beauty.

The region’s coastline offers mile after mile of golden sandy beaches, many of which have been awarded the coveted ‘Blue Flag’ award. Discover hidden coves and smugglers caves, old fishing harbours and magnificent cliffs where you can take the coastal path which extends some 60 miles.

There are two special areas of conservation here and a rich diversity of marine wildlife including Bottle Nosed dolphins, seals and sea birds. It’s easy to hop aboard one of the many boat trips that operate from New Quay and Cardigan to fully appreciate this designated ‘Marine Heritage Coast’.

Inland a great plateau rises to form the largest part of the Cambrian Mountains with Pumlumon Fawr its highest peak at 752m (2,468 feet). This large and remote plateau is broken up by steep valleys which include some of the most beautiful mountain passes in Wales.

Further explorations of local wildlife can be found at the Welsh Wildlife Centre. This great visitor centre stands on the Telfi Marshes Nature Reserve and, thanks to its glass fronted design and elevated position, offers incredible views of the surrounding area and a variety of wildlife.

Some visitor attractions and activities of interest include the National Wool Museum were you can learn all about the region’s sheep farming heritage, or if you’re feeling adventurous try the Cardigan Bay Watersports and Sea School. Here you can enjoy dinghy sailing, yacht cruising, power boating, windsurfing and kayaking in one of the UK’s most glorious coastal locations.

Enjoy the simple pleasures of great walks and magnificent scenery; take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Cardigan for a perfect break.

    Ref: OQ2


    Lying in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, this unique detached stone cottage makes an unforgettable experience for a family or couples alike. The first record of Llechwedd Mawr dates back to 1587 when a farmer, Richard Morgan, rented the land. It was the traditional way back then to graze cattle through the summer and make butter and cheese to sell in the neighbouring villages. A survey of 1811 described the building as "a stone house with a slate cover in good repair and that with 983 acres the rent shall be £22 per annum."

    Over the following years the house saw many changes and occupants until the 1950s when it became inaccessible due to a hydro-electric dam being built, and it stood abandoned and isolated for many years until a road was made. The present owners purchased the land and cottage in the 1980s and it was used merely to store sheep food until its complete renovation in 2011 and then two years later it was transformed into the uniquely positioned and beautiful holiday home it is today.

    The owners have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH The Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales.

    There are mountain views from all windows and a scenic route leads you from the village of Talybont over the Nant-y-Moch Dam to Ponterwyd and Devil’s Bridge. On your approach to the cottage, ‘Pumlumon’ - the highest peak in the Cambrian Mountain range - will come into full view with its 760 square mile vastness of heather, forest, shimmering lakes and sourcing the mighty Severn and Wye rivers. This high country of compelling emptiness defies civilisation, providing a natural playground for ramblers, mountain bikers and bird watchers alike. If you can drag yourself away from the tranquillity of Llechwedd Mawr, the nearby charming towns of Aberystwyth, Machynlleth and Aberaeron are well worth a visit, offering traditional Welsh pubs, boutique shops and sandy beaches where dolphins and porpoises are often spotted on a clear day. Horse riding nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant, 8 miles.

    Open-plan living room with wood-burning stove and dining area with mountain views and tiled floor. Kitchen with tiled floor. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Twin bedroom. Bunk bedroom. Shower room with toilet.
