N. B. Over 10's only due to the hazard of the stream, located beyond the garden fence.
Over a little footbridge and across the meadows takes you to the 18th century Welsh gentry estate.
The mansion (designed by John Nash) gardens and cafe are set amidst rolling parkland. There is a service courtyard with dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house and walled kitchen gardens (with produce for sale in season). It is also a working organic farm with Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.
Once a thriving and prosperous fishing port with a shipbuilding industry - some 60 sailing vessels were built here including 35 schooners 'the greyhound of the ocean' - a walk on the historic Town Trail gives a fascinating glimpse into this past, including the origins of the famous Aberaeron Shovel.
There is a fantastic regular calendar of events during the year to enjoy including Cardigan Bay Sea Food Festival, Yachting Regatta, a Beer & Cider Festival, Tug of War, Annual Carnival and Mackerel Festival.
Aberaeron Craft Centre
Ceredigion Coast Path
The Ceredigion Coast Path is virtually on your doorstep - from Cardigan in the South to Yns-las in the North the path runs along the coast past Aberaeron and takes in part of the Marine Heritage Coast - secluded sandy coves, endless golden beaches, undulating clifftop walking where the only sound is the cry of the seabirds and there are charming fishing villages - spot bottlenose dolphins in the bay along the way!
This pretty sheltered sandy beach is good for bathing and has beautiful scenic views - the Coastal Path from Aberaeron to Cei Bach passes over a waterfall as it wends its way along the cliff tops.
This is a bustling seaside town with picturesque houses, pubs and restaurants clinging to the sides of the hills as they rise above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay above the sandy beaches - great for relaxing, sailing, fishing and water sports.
From New Quay's pier, you can see the famous Cardigan Bay dolphins on most days in the summer or take a fishing trip or coastal cruise to truly experience fantastic coastal scenery from a different aspect and perhaps have close encounters with the dolphins, seals, porpoises and sometimes whales!
This is a tranquil, secluded cove at the end of the Dewi valley. Once the haunt of smugglers, it is now a popular destination for walkers, nature lovers and holidaymakers with caves to explore at low tide and spectacular cliff top views from the Ceredigion Coast Path as it passes through.
This pretty little-sheltered cove is popular with families and has great rock pools with the famous Carreg Bica rock (Devils Tooth) divides its 2 sandy beaches at low tide.
Enjoy a drink or food at the Ship Inn overlooking the beach - fabulous sunsets too!
This is the charming county town with its high street lined with Georgian shop fronts - call into The Custom House Gallery, visit the indoor market, sample some of the eating places and perhaps see a film or show at Theatr Mwldan which has a constantly changing programme of events.
Recently refurbished, the castle is more of a Georgian mansion within 11th century fortified walls overlooking the Teifi river. Dine in the 1176 restaurant and enjoy special events.
