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

Owners were helpful and available, while completely non-intrusive. It's a lovely spot with the chickens and geese around - and our boys (8&10) loved it. You can just about see the sea from the veranda of the caravan, and there are lovely views from the cottage (we had other family staying with us too). It's close to Aberaeron which is a lovely spot, and we found lots to do, including walking on the coastal path, going to the local vintage show, hiring bikes at Llanerchaeron, a steam train trip up to Devil's Bridge from Aberystwyth and more. Perfect for star-gazing too - we lay out on the grass one night watching the meteor shower in a sky full of stars. Phone reception in the area is patchy, but on my network I had internet access at the caravan. Everything you need for lovely self-catering holiday here - we thought our holiday was really good value.

New Quay was a bit fraught - very busy. the weather was kind and we had some beautiful sunsets. If you just want relax the ponds on site were a short walk with ample room to sit and read - not that we had time. All in all great either as a base to tour the surrounding area or as somewhere just to relax.
