Beach with direct access

One of the many great things about holidaying with us, is our private beach with direct access. Perfect for those times your little ones fancy a paddle (whilst supervised of course), and you want to relax by the calming waves. Make sure you take along your bucket and spade!

Dolphin spotting

You don’t need to spend lots of money on an overseas trip to see dolphins, head here to Ceredigion for a similar experience! You are almost guaranteed to spot a bottlenose dolphins, porpoise or grey seal. If you want to make a day of it, join a guided tour boat trip and see how many marine friends you can spy!

National Botanic Garden

On the same theme, if your youngsters are interested in nature then the National Botanic Garden of Wales should be on your list of places to visit.
