The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
This area of West Wales includes part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park: the length of coast between Strumble Head to the west of Fishguard and the Teifi estuary near Cardigan, and inland, the craggy slopes of the Preseli Mountains.
Near the pretty resort of Newport, you will find Celtic heritage sites such as Castell Henllys, the reconstructed Iron Age hillfort, Pentre Ifan, one of the finest megalithic burial chambers in Britain, and on Carn Ingli mountain, the remnants of a hillfort with stunning panoramic views across the sea.
There are sandy beaches at Newport and Poppit. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the Preselis offer a choice of walks amidst breathtaking scenery. Free coastal bus services in the high season allow you to walk the coastal path without having to double back. The quiet country lanes provide safe family cycling routes. Excellent fishing is available in the Teifi and Nevern rivers as well as sea fishing from boats or off the rocks and beaches. The National Park runs an extensive programme of activities and events for both adults and children.
There are charming places to visit such as Nevern village with its legendary churchyard, Newport with its friendly village atmosphere and wildlife-rich estuary, as well as the larger Fishguard, a ferry port offering the opportunity of a day trip to Ireland.
The two sheltered Blue Flag sandy beaches of 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 The Old Post Office 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. But no need to buy postcards: just take photos of the gorgeous views from the balcony and add ‘Wish you were here?’!
