Ceredigion and North Pembrokeshire offer some of Wales’s most unspoilt beaches. The park is within 5 miles of Llangranog, Aberporth, Penbryn and Tresaith beaches. A little further afield you will find bustling New Quay and the vast expanse of Poppit Sands. Take your time to discover the beautiful coves at Mwnt and Cwmtydu. Take a boat trip from New Quay (www.newquayboattrips.co.uk) and see if you can spot seals or even Cardigan Bay’s famous bottle nose dolphins !
The park enjoys countryside views but take advantage of the locality to enjoy the Preseli Hills, the Brecon Beacons, the coastal paths or perhaps a more leisurely walk along Cenarth falls and watch the salmon leap.Head for the wildlife centre at Cilgerran (www.welshwildlife.org) and study the native birds from the hides or take an afternoon to watch the spectacular Red Kites feeding at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian.
Early man left his mark in the locality – visit Pentre Ifan Stone Age Burial Chamber or spend time at Castell Henllys reconstructed Iron Age Fort (www.castellhenllys.com) Castles galore – Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn, Cilgerran, Carew to name but a few or seek the peace of St Davids Cathedral, St Dogmaels Abbey or Strata Florida. Enjoy a trip back in time with a visit to a working mill, or see what life was like above and below stairs in Scolton Manor or Llanerchaeron House.
Attractions for young and old.
For the tinies a day at Folly Farm is entertaining fun and the teens can get their thrills at Oakwood Theme Park (www.oakwoodthemepark.co.uk) or Heatherton Country Park.
Young and old will enjoy a steam train trip at Henllan or a ride on the Vale of Rheidol Railway from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge.
With so many attractions in Ceredigion and West Wales this is just a selection of things to do and see in the area. On Woodland Hideaway Caravan Park we have a comprehensive display of tourist information.
