Ceredigion is proud of its Welsh-speaking heritage and it is a wonderful place to immerse yourself in Welsh culture. It's also blessed with the most extraordinary landscape, including 50 miles of coastline, a mountainous hinterland, sandy beaches and the long-distance Ceredigion Coast Path. This sparsely populated part of the world is a blessing for family holidays, exploring coves and countryside, visiting family farms and sampling local produce. The rugged beauty of the area lends itself to romantic breaks, roaming the Teifi Valley with its market towns, visiting local art galleries, and exploring the likes of Cardigan, New Quay, Aberaeron and Aberystwyth. Stretches of coast at the likes of Mwnt, Aberporth, Lochtyn, Cwmtydu, Penbryn, Tresaith are like something out of a fairytale, and Cardigan Bay is well known for its populations of dolphins and porpoises. There is much effort that goes into protecting this Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The Cambrian Mountains are ideal for adventurous souls looking to mountain bike in the wild, while a steam train ride at the Vale of Rheidol Railway, which opened in 1902 is excellent entertainment. For those looking for more culture than countryside, the Aberystwyth Arts Centre is well known for its cinema screenings, dance, comedy and theatrical events, and Cardigan Castle is definitely worth a visit. For those seeking a really unique getaway, Ceredigion has so much to offer, and its hotels, inns and B&Bs only serve to enhance the experience.
