The region of Ceredigion has been one of the last to retain the Welsh language and many of its traditions. Dominated by the spectacular heather-swept peaks of the Plynlimon mountains, the region offers a unique space to explore and relax. There are over 40 holiday parks in Ceredigion on our site including everything from idyllic coastal campsites to 5* award-winning caravan and lodge sites.
If you love to spot native wildlife you’re spoilt for choice in Ceredigion. The waters of Cardigan Bay are a Special Area of Conservation, and there you’ll find Europe’s largest population of bottlenose dolphins. Take a guided boat trip and see the porpoises, turtles, seals and sunfish that also live in these waters.
Pop along the coastal path south of New Quay and you’ll reach Bird’s Rock where the skies are alive with guillemots that nest on the craggy clifftop. Keep your eyes peeled for peregrine falcons, gannets, razorbills and rare crow variety, the chough.
The remote Cambrian Mountains provide scenic views of the moorland ridges and small lakes. Amongst abbey ruins and restored waterwheels and chimneys you’ll stumble across vast farmlands with roaming livestock. If visiting at night, be sure to look up as the mountains have some of the clearest skies in Europe, so star gazing is a must.
The river Teifi winds its way through Ceredigion, over the Cenarth Falls and under the bridge at Cardigan Castle. The Teifi Valley has become passage for migrating wild trout and salmon and is a must-visit for fly fishers. If you’re visiting in autumn, you might even see the salmon leaping out of the river.
As well as its castle, Cardigan town has old-fashioned market town attractions and modern eateries and galleries such as Stiwdio 3 where they host workshops such as shoemaking, silver carving and book binding. Be sure to browse the wares in Cardigan Guildhall Market. This modern Gothic building houses local makers and sellers so it’s ideal for picking up souvenirs and gifts.
Aberystwyth is vibrant and diverse – making it a must on your tour of Ceredigion. The town was established in the Middle Ages, so you’ll be able to experience the history as you stroll through. There are plenty of independent shops, cafés and if you’re walking off your lunch, the Iron Age hillfort of Pen Dias. Don’t forget to meander along the prom and the oldest pier in Wales.
