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

As we were staying over New Year extra touches such as a Christmas tree, card and bottle of wine upon arrival were appreciated. Good location for exploring the area and local shop open regularly for forgotten items.

The cottage has every amenity you could wish for with a lovely log burner in the lounge and comfy sofas and chairs to relax in. The sea views from the lounge and bedrooms upstairs are beautiful and would highly recommend this property.

But after a phone call to Ann we found it straight away. There is a very handy, large entrance hall , where our two dog slept. Kitchen is well equipped. Everything very clean and tidy- well managed. The driveway is pot holed 'country farm track' so I would imagine anyone with a low car would struggle. There are some stunning walks from here and also from the coastal path- children had a brilliant time finding beach treasures and the waterfalls just inland near Cwm Tydu were magical. We had a great time and would love to return for longer next time to explore more. Thank you!
