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

Things to do in Ceredigion

Ceredigion council tourist office and the Cambrian news are an excellent source of what's on and where to go in Ceredigion. If you are looking for castles and ruins to visit, then you are in for a real treat, as Ceredigion not only has the popular Carmarthen Castle (Caernarfon) and Aberystwyth Castle but also Caer Penrhos, Cardigan Castle, Castell Dinerth and Castell Gwallter. St Dogmael's Abbey is an eye-catching hillside remains of a 12th century Benedictine abbey near Cardigan and a visit to Llanerchaeron gives an insight into how the Welsh gentry lived.

The Aberystwyth arts centre has won numerous awards and is situated in the centre the university's Penglais Campus. Also in Aberystwyth are the Electric Cliff Railway and the Ceredigion Museum. Other museums in Ceredigion include Cardigan Visitor Centre, Catherine Lewis Gallery and Print Room and the Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine Museum.

Exploring the Ceredigion Heritage Coast is an amazing experience whether you choose to do so on foot or otherwise. Its twenty-one miles are divided into four sections including marine conservation areas and numerous nature reserves. The conservation area in Cardigan Bay supports grey seals, porpoises and bottlenose dolphins.

Weather in Ceredigion

Wonderful View

5 of 5
Stayed in this lovely spacious house in June 2017. The owner Lorraine was very helpful. We had everything we needed, the downstairs bedroom and bathroom were ideal for my elderly parents. Poppit Sands across across the estuary was perfect for walking the dog and rock pooling, also the cafe there serves great food with friendly staff and we liked the RNLI shop too. Great place for walking with lovely beaches, Mwnt beach and the church are a definate visit, although you can't take dogs on the beach between May and September. A great base for exploring the area, we had a lovely relaxing holiday, and the weather was kind to us too!

Fantastic view, very comfortable and well equipped.

5 of 5
The house was beautifully furnished throughout. It was like a home from home with an extremely well equipped kitchen. The beds where very comfortable and the house was deceptively spacious. The garden was lovely but the view was fabulous. We regularly holiday in New Quay and this was definitely my favourite holiday home todate. Thank you Jo for all the information and the attention to detail. We will definitely book again in the future.
