Things to do, places to see, memories to make

We are proud that our beach has a Blue Flag! Find out more about its amenities here:

Where to eat?

If you don’t fancy cooking, the Ship Inn at Tresaith is often busy. In July 2018 it was noted in the Sunday Times as one of the best placed beach bars and restaurants in the UK. The Harbourmaster at Aberaeron is a popular fish restaurant - or closer to home the Gardd y Nos Restaurant is located on the road between Aberporth and the A487. There are also various Indian restaurants and takeaways in Cardigan. 

There is a Tesco store just outside Cardigan. Tesco deliveries can be made from this store directly to the house.

Cardigan Bay offers visitors a number of beautiful beaches, coastal paths, charming towns and villages and opportunities to explore.

Wildlife Spotting

Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and seals in Tresaith Bay, choughs at Mwnt, seals at Gwbert and red kites at Tanyr-Groes. From nearby Newquay, a traditional seaside town, dolphin, seal and bird spotting trips can be arranged.


  • Take the cliff path from Tresaith to Aberporth or Penbryn to Llangranog and onwards North;

  • Walk from Gwybert along the cliff top;

  • From Llangrannog village take the path up to the right hand side and over the headland;

  • Walk up the hill at Mwnt and see beautiful views over the bay;

  • Cardigan Golf Course, a traditional Links Golf Course 15 minutes drive away.

Other places to visit

  • Llangrannog - little village with two pubs. The drive back up the windy road on the far side is for the daring only!

  • Ynys Lochtyn - a lovely headland lying above Llangranog, owned by the National Trust and well worth a walk up for the views. You can take the footpath up from the village. 

  • Mwnt - a dear little bay surrounded by National Trust Land. The church is special, the beach is small and great, the climb to the top of the hill worthwhile!

  • Cardigan (the City!) - 8 miles away. Home to Tesco, Queens Bakery on the main street, Cardigan theatre and cinema, the dentist and doctors and the market in the Market Hall which is open all week.

  • Newcastle Emlyn - worth a visit on market day for live animal auction sales and vegetables in very large quantities. Ededa J is a very good dress shop - there is a coffee shop opposite where you can consider your purchases!

  • Aberaeron - home to best local ice cream at the Hive on the Quay. A pretty town with pastel coloured houses.

Further leaflets on activities available in the local area can be found in the book shelf of the living-dining room at Craig yr Awel.
