Beach Guide


There are stunning sea views from the property itself and you may not wish to leave at all! If you do wish to explore the area then please see below some local beaches which may be of interest.  This is not a definitive guide but only a list of our favourite beaches which you may wish to visit during your stay all of which are all close by

Cwmtydu

The closest beach to the Property (Around 1 Mile away). A small cove of shingle and some sand. Seals are often spotted here. If you walk along the path to the right of the cove, then there are several secluded coves which are usually empty.  It is possible to walk to Cwmtydu from Caerwenfor either along the coastal path or along the road.

Llangrannog

A sandy beach which is popular with body boarders and occasionally surfers. The main beach can be seen from the car park but there is another beach to the right, if the tide is out it is possible to walk from the main beach to the secret beach. If the tide is in then you can walk along the cliffs and down the steps to reach this beach. It is a bit of a climb but worth it. Take the steps which are situated near the Patio Café to the right of the beach and continue up until you see the other beach – the steps will then become visible.

Again it is possible to walk to Llangrannog from Caerwenfor along the coastal path, discover hidden coves and maybe even spot dolphins in the bay, enjoy a nice pub lunch in the village or a divine ice cream from the Patio Café and then walk back to Caerwenfor and chill!

Penbryn

A National Trust beach, the best sandy beach in the area. There is small café in the car park but there are no facilities on the beach itself. There is a nice walk form the car park through the woods to reach the beach.  In the spring the bluebells in the wood leading to the beach are spectacular and certainly should not be missed!

Aberaeron

A quaint town with interesting shops, delightful restaurants and cafes, a great place to spend an afternoon wondering around the harbour, great walks along the sea front.  A striking feature of the town is its architecture, apparently one house in every four is listed with either special architectural or historic interest.  Aberaeron has even been described as the most stunning on the welsh coast.  The Cardigan Bay Sea Food festoval is held in Aberaeron every year, this year it will take place on the 10th July 2011.  Fantastic opportunity to taste amazing local fresh sea food, watch cookery demonstrations or just chilax in the atmosphere.

Tresaith

View from The Ship Inn Tresaith

A small sandy cove with a waterfall situated on the right hand side.  Very popular beach for families during the summer months however virtually empty in the winter.  The Ship Inn which is located in a stunning spot overlooking the beach is a great place to stop for a beer and to watch the world go by.

The old church at Mwnt

A peaceful location, a sheltered sandy cove with an old church on the cliff edge.  Owned by the National Trust.  A well troden path circles Foel y Mwnt leading to the top of the hill which overlooks the beach.  Atlantic Gray seals as well as bottle nose dolphins are often spotted in the bay.

Cei Bach

The beach north of New Quay.  No facilities as such on the beach itself but a great place to come for a walk on a rough day!
