Explore from the comfort of a holiday rental home or holiday cottage in Ceredigion Wales

Cardigan Bay, Gwynedd, Powys, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire border Ceredigion, a coastal town in Wales and three out of every five inhabitants speak the Welsh language. This area is often compared with Cornwall because it has lovely sandy beaches and clean clear blue seas. It is the only bay in the UK to have bottle nosed dolphins all summer long.

A few of the main towns and villages in Ceredigion are Tregaron, Penparcau, Llanrhystud, Llanilar, Llandysul, Llanddewi Brefi, Lampeter and Aberarth.

Places to holiday in Ceredigion

The geography of Ceredigion makes it remarkably suited to a wide range of activities within a relatively small area. New Quay, Cardigan, Aberaeron and Aberystwyth all have harbour facilities and so water sports are well catered for, but what really makes Ceredigion such a popular tourist destination and draws thousands of holidaymakers each year are the activities that involve cycling, walking, golf and angling, as well as the rich medieval heritage of the area.

Self catering holiday rental homes and cottages are one of the most popular types of holiday accommodation available in Ceredigion as they allow you freedom to explore and are more spacious than caravans or hotels. Holiday cottages give you somewhere special to come home to after an exciting day and this is why the tourist information at Ceredigion county council receives so many enquiries.

Mountain cottages are popular with visitors wanting to climb Snowden, the highest peak in Wales and for the National Three Peaks Challenge. County cottages are popular with visitors wanting to see Devils Bridge, Mynach Falls and Porthmadog, which is the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park and seaside cottages are available in Rhyl, Barmouth and Borth. A holiday cottage makes the ideal base to travel even further a field than this mid Wales County to North Wales and areas such as Wrexham, Anglesey and Bryn

                                                            tasteful and homely, with attention to detail

                                                            This is a delightful holiday home. It actually felt home-from-home here, with a very welcoming feel to the place, fab decor and attention to detail. It was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. There is plenty of space both inside the house and in the courtyard - my partner and I stayed for a long weekend, but decided we'll come back with a group of friends next time.We are both walkers, so being right next to the start of the Pembrokeshire coastal path was perfect. Recommend it? Definitely!

                                                            Where to start.....such a beautiful, peaceful place. The whole weekend left me smiling. Even though we decided to stay in February, you would have thought it was summer. The setting is beautiful - something you would normally only see in photographs. Friendly locals everywhere. The house itself is magnificent with a garden to really appreciate the beautiful view over the Quay. Prime location - within walking distance of everything in New Quay. It's safe to say we found our own little heaven in New Quay. Highly recommended property!
