Location description from owner
The Wales region
Borth is set on Cardigan Bay between the university town of Aberystwyth and the tourist resort of Aberdovey. Just inland lies the Plynlimon mountain range with the Dyfi estuary leading up to Machynlleth. The mainline train runs from Borth to Machynlleth and then north along the coast via Tywyn and right through to Pwllheli on the Lleyn Peninsula. This is a picturesque journey through some magnificent countryside alongside the ocean for much of the way.
Departing from Aberystwyth railway station daily on the narrow gauge railway line there is a small steam engine with its open carriages winding through the picturesque Rheidol valley to the waterfalls at Devils Bridge. Also in the Rheidol valley is the 'Butterfly House' and the 'Rheidol Riding Centre' providing horses and ponies suitable for both novice and experienced riders. Further along the valley towards the Plynlimon Mountain Range the 'Llywernog Silver Mines' are open to the public with guided tours and at the 'Nantyrarian Visitor Centre' there is a Kite Feeding Station plus trails suitable for walking and mountain bike riding. There is also a cafe, information centre and children's outdoor activity area.
Places to eat are on the increase in Borth and outlying areas. On the seafront in Borth there is a first-floor cafe above the Nisa store which also houses the Post Office. In nearby Bowstreet 'The Welsh Black' has a good menu and further afield there are two award-winning restaurants, one in Ynys-hir (near the RSPB Bird Sanctuary at Furnace), and the other in the 'Harbourmaster Hotel' at Aberaeron. There is also a highly recommended award-winning restaurant in the Wynnstay Arms in Machynlleth.
In Borth there is a Fish and Chip shop and in Bow Street a Chinese take-away.
