The Ceredigion region
Llys Bach is located in the picturesque Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron in Cardigan Bay, West Wales. Once a busy port with a thriving ship-building history, it is now home to vessels designed for leisure rather than work. It is still a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying one of the town's famous Honey Ice Creams - available from the Hive on the Quay.There are numerous high quality, local cafes and restaurants, and your day can end with anything from a really good fish and chips eaten al fresco, to haute cuisine. There are also several traditional public houses.
Aberaeron's architectural gem is full of interest. There's a Sea Aquarium, the famous Harbourmaster Restaurant and the National Trust's Llanerchaeron estate. It is also a very central location for touring Wales and ideal for pursuits such as angling, sailing, birdwatching, cycling and walking.
Travel inland from Aberaeron to the Teifi Valley. A favourite with visitors is Cenarth Falls, a famous beauty spot. To the north, travel from Aberystwyth on the narrow-gauge Vale of Rheidol Railway to experience the waterfalls at Devil's Bridge or visit the ruins at Strata Florida Abbey, near Pontrhydfendigaid in the Cambrian mountains. Just a few miles south, coastal towns and villages such as New Quay and Llangrannog offer Blue Flag beaches, dolphin spotting or fishing boat trips, Go Carting and Paintball Centre, Felinwynt Rainforest Centre, New Quay Honey Centre and much more.

Cardigan Bay and Ceredigion have so much to offer the visitor. What is your passion?
Llanerchaeron National Trust property is just a 10-minute drive from the apartment.
A little further but still only a short trip away is Cae Hir. Built by a welsh-speaking Dutchman with a vision, from 6 acres of barren hillside, it too is well worth a visit. A little further still, and the star of its own BBC television series; Aberglasney is a must for those who love a happy ending along with their gardens. We also have the National Botanic Garden of Walesat Llanarthne, Carmarthenshire.
Most have plants for sale and all have refreshment facilities.
If nature and wildlife are what you love, then again Ceredigion has so much to offer you. The Red Kiteis staging a remarkable comeback, and in this area has gone from a handful of birds to an estimated 200+ breeding pairs. There are several places to visit that you are guaranteed a sighting, though it is not uncommon to see the distinctive forked tail above you anywhere in the area.
Cardigan Bay also has resident populations of Bottle-nosed Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises and Atlantic Grey seals. The dolphins can often be seen from the beaches, and there are wildlife trips around the Bay available from Aberaeron Harbour and from Newquay (Ceinewydd) from Easter to October.
Steam train buffs too can indulge their passions in and around the area. In Aberystwyth there is the Vale of Rheidol Railway that takes a scenic trip up to Devils Bridge. There are many more railways in the area, details of which can all be found at the Great Little Trains of Wales web site.
Going from the past to the future, the Centre for Alternative Technology just north of Machynlleth is an interesting and informative day out with something for everyone. Their café is exclusively vegetarian and has an Egon Ronay award.
Aberystwyth Arts Centre in the grounds of the University has theatre, cinema and various festivals throughout the year for those who wish to catch up with their culture, and also housed in Aberystwyth is the National Library of Wales.
For satisfying the less esoteric tastes there are food festivalsthroughout Ceredigion & mid-Wales; the Lampeter Food Festival in July and a Food & River Festivalin Cardigan in August as well as The Seafood Festival in Aberaeron itself in July.
For golfers there is a variety of links and parkland courses available within easy reach at Borth and Ynyslas, Cardigan, Penrhos and Aberystwyth. There are also 9-hole courses available in Penrhos, Lampeter, Llangrannog & Rhydyfelin.
