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

Precious quiet time

5 of 5
We stayed December, this is a beautiful little cottage with local amenities. As it was out of season it was very quiet but the reality is it was just what we needed. As we stayed in and had a totally relaxing break. Visiting sea breeze on the evening for something to eat. I would totally recommend it and may consider visiting again when the weather is better !
