A visitor called me recently at our offices at West Wales Holiday Cottages because she wanted to stay near a friend who had already booked a holiday cottage. All she knew about this was the name of the cottage and the fact that it was in a small village called something like Cerdig. She was very surprised when she discovered that Cerdig was actually Ceredigion and not a small village but a whole county!
Ceredigion which was formerly called Cardiganshire obviously has an image problem. Only a few people outside Wales know what it is but those that do understand its delights. Located just north of Pembrokeshire and bordering Cardigan Bay, it’s a haven of peace and tranquillity. The stunning understated landscape is made up of rolling hills and a patchwork of small fields. Tiny farms nestle in quiet valleys and the network of country lanes lead to small fishing villages and sandy beaches separated by rocky headlands.
All this means an ideal place to have a family holiday, a weekend away or a more active break – maybe walking the Ceredigion Coastal Path. Visitors who come to Ceredigion love the county. You will too – but please don’t tell everyone. As accessible as more the popular areas of Wales, Ceredigion is not crowded even in the height of summer. See you there!
