Mad about marine life? Can’t get enough of the great outdoors? Cuckoo about arts and crafts? Better pack your bags and head for Aberteifi (or Cardigan as it’s also known). On the estuary of the River Teifi and at the bottom of Cardigan Bay, you’ll need your waterproofs more than your knitwear when you stay at our Cardigan hotels.
On this Cardigan Bay boat tour, you’ll spy Cardigan’s most famous residents: bottlenose dolphins. Keep your eyes peeled for harbour porpoises, Atlantic grey seals, sea birds and maybe the odd whale.
Cardigan is the gateway to the Ceridigion Coastal Path. You don’t walk the entire 60-mile trail - keep it local and appreciate Cardigan Bay’s Marine Special Areas of Conservation, and do some birdwatching
Just under 40 miles away from Cardigan, the bustling university town of Aberystwyth is ideally placed for a day-trip. Looking out to the Irish Sea, its colourful seafront is a jaunty sight, and the 2km long promenade covers the town’s main landmarks such as Constitution Hill and the Cliff Railway.
