The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
This area of West Wales is surrounded by sea and landscapes of great beauty and outstanding environmental quality. Aberporth is centrally placed to enjoy the fabulous Heritage Coast line of Cardigan Bay stretching north into Ceredigion and south into Pembrokeshire.
Here there are miles of tranquil, unspoilt coastline with secluded sandy coves, award winning accessible beaches, towering cliffs garlanded with flowers in early summer, and islands set like jewels in clear waters where dolphins, porpoises and seals abound.
Step into a gentler pace of life, discover our beautiful beaches, great walks, rivers, stunning wildlife and breathtaking scenery of the Teifi Valley and Cardigan Bay.
Cardigan, on the estuary of the River Teifi is a very special place to visit for holidays and enjoy. Its unspoilt townscape and rich heritage provide a nostalgic backdrop to a thriving contemporary culture of the arts, festivals and events.
West Wales offers a special visitor experience, ideally located to explore the fabulous land and seascapes of the Teifi Valley and Cardigan Bay. Activity packed or pure relaxation - visitors will discover a vibrant culture, first class accommodation, great local food and a naturally thrilling adventure playground.
Two sheltered Blue Flag sandy beaches in Aberporth make this seaside village one of Ceredigion's favourite holiday destinations. At low tide, rock pools are exposed and seals, dolphins and otters can often be seen close to shore. The coastal path passes just by Elm Cottage providing wonderful walks passing sandy beaches, towering cliffs and rocky headlands.
With the village amenities within walking distance - including the local store, two pubs serving food and two takeaway restaurants - you need hardly leave Aberporth! However, with so many nearby places to visit you'll be tempted: the area has numerous tourist attractions and the apartment's central location allows for day trips exploring the rest of Cardigan Bay and Pembrokeshire. All village amenities are within walking distance. The local Inn is close at hand serving homemade meals and a warm welcome and the Café offers traditional fish and chips to eat in or takeaway. There is a well-stocked Village Shop, a Post Office, Pharmacy and excellent Chinese & Indian Takeaways. Everything you could need for a wonderful holiday is right on your doorstep.
Should you choose to explore the surrounding area, there are many activities and attractions to entertain - golf, horse riding, boat trips, theatre and theme parks, something for all the family.

Excellent apartment with wonderful views. Beach only just over the road, which can be busy. Good base for exploring this part of Wales when you have had enough of sand and sea - if possible. Very helpful owners met us on arrival and even helped with the bags!

You couldn't ask for more from your stay the The Old Post Office. It's in a prime location, with the most fabulous views!
A beautiful coastal walk will take you accross to Tresyth in 30 mins, to a lovely pub called The Ship - gorgeous views of the sea while you sit & eat lovely food :)
There is nothing more to say other than make sure you check out these apartments for yourself & have a wonderful stay!

"Perfect family beach holiday"
Really clean, well thought out accomodation overlooking beautiful, uncrowded beach.
Giving a warm and friendly welcome, Sam English could not have been more thoughtful, friendly or helpful. We found the apartment to be everything we'd hoped for and the website photos give a true respectation of what to expect. We loved the TV/DVD in each room, the outside shower (to remove sand) and shed where we could store beach things, the large balcony and the general level of decor and comfort throughout. The location meant that the children could be safely playing on the beach while we prepared for the day (we could see and hear the children easily from the apartment).
The location was extremely quiet with lots to do and see a short drive away, if you don't want to sit on the beach. Would wholeheartedly recommend the apartment for a traditional and relaxing family holiday on the beach.
