Ever dreamed of living on a farm? You can come close, with a visit to this pretty site: the pitches at Cardigan Caravan & Camping Site are only 100 metres away from a working farmyard, and you’ll be greeted by the resident ducks, sheep, hens, Welsh cobs and Arab horses - as well as some rather stately-looking white peacocks.
Surrounded by mature hedgerows and imposing oak trees, the roomy, well-equipped site at Aelybryn Farm also enjoys top notch views (and spectacular sunsets) over Cardigan Bay and the Preseli mountains.
Open from 1 Mar to 1 Nov
The ancient market town of Cardigan is only half a mile from the park (the bus in stops right outside the entrance) and offers good shopping, drinking and eating, as well as a cinema and theatre. It’s a place with a fascinating history, too: check out Cardigan Castle, St Dogmaels Abbey, and the beautiful Guildhall building, which now houses the town’s market.
Beach lovers, rejoice: a 10-minute drive will take you to the sands of Mwnt and Aberport, and a few minutes further away you’ll find masses more of the golden stuff at Poppit, Tresaith, Newport and Penbryn (all these can also be reached by bus, but obviously it takes a bit longer).
In addition to the thousands of rare sea birds to be found on this stretch of coast, animal fans can spot Atlantic grey seals and bottle-nosed dolphins in Cardigan Bay, visit the Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park, or flit amongst the butterflies at the Felinwynt Rainforest Centre. The equinely inclined will enjoy horsing around at Cardigan's Barley Saturday (end of April), the Agricultural Show (July), and nearby Aberaeron’s Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs (August). Autumn visitors can see the dramatic spectacle of salmon and sea trout leaping up the cascading waterfalls at Cenarth Falls.
Athletic types will find a good range of golf courses, horse riding, river and sea fishing on hand, as well as kayaking and canoeing in the picturesque Cilgerran Gorge. For adventure seekers, this area is renowned for coasteering (high impact climbing, scrambling, canyoning, swimming, jumping and diving along the rocky coastline). Alternatively, the Ceredigion coastal path offers a more relaxed meander past tranquil coves and breathtaking beaches, plus further wildlife and birdwatching opportunities.
Families will also enjoy the Oakwood Theme Park and the Folly Farm adventure park and zoo.
