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.

    Gerlan is a quaint town cottage built around 1866 sometime after the railway arrived in Tregaron. Tregaron was once a very strategic point for taking animals from the farms in West Wales to markets in England. Before the railways, it is said around 30,000 animals were escorted overland on drovers’ roads through the Cambrian Mountains. The trading importance of the town was such that it even had its own ’Black Sheep Aberystwyth and Tregaron Bank’, and the number of black sheep engraved on the bank notes issued indicated the number of pounds value.

    The Cambrian Mountains are one of the few remote areas left in southern Britain, and Tregaron lies close to this wild open wilderness. Although there are only few roads across the mountains they are acknowledged as some of the most scenic routes in Britain and walkers and cyclists revel in the peaceful solitude.

    The current owners of Gerlan have lovingly restored the property so that it now provides the perfect base to discover this wonderful part of Wales. The ground floor has a country kitchen leading into a spacious living and dining room, and an attractive stone fireplace with a wood burning stove so that you can be cosy year round. A ground floor bathroom and two first floor bedrooms complete this quaint cottage.

    Today, historic Tregaron is a ’Walkers are Welcome’ town, and the annual walking festival held in May is a firm favourite on the walking calendar. Competitors and visitors come from all over the UK and Ireland for the annual horse trotting and carriage racing too. It is also the home of the Welsh Gold Centre, selling Celtic inspired designs.

    The town is small and has a friendly village atmosphere. A short stroll will bring you to independent shops, and on the square, the award winning pub and restaurant, the renowned Talbot Hotel. Also standing proudly on the square is a wood carving depicting Twm Siôn Cati, the legendary 17th-century ’Robin Hood of Wales’ who is said to have used his wit and bravery to outsmart gentry and crooks alike.

    Cors Caron, or Tregaron Bog as it is also known, is the largest raised bog in Britain and lies just outside the town. It is a peat bog of international importance and a nature reserve since 1955. It provides a habitat to very rare flora and fauna and is fantastic for wildlife spotting, including buzzards, peregrine falcons, harriers and iconic red kites.

    The beautiful Ceredigion coastline can be reached within 30 minutes drive and offers lovely beaches (many dog friendly year round), and interesting towns and villages to visit. The university town of Aberystwyth has a historic castle, long promenade and pier, plus it is home to one of Wales’ most picturesque steam train journeys through the valley over to Devil’s Bridge. Georgian harbour town Aberaeron, and quaint fishing town of New Quay, are also great places to go for restaurants, shops, boat rides and dolphin spotting.
