Aberaeron was once a major trading port in west Wales, and many of the colourful painted houses were once owned by sea captains. Today, it is the jewel of Cardigan Bay, priding itself in lively festivals, exhibitions, events & sporting tournaments. There is plenty of shopping, an array of cafes & renowned restaurants to suit all tastes. With the Heritage Coastline of Ceredigion stretching out in front of you, there are a myriad of places to visit such as quaint New Quay, famous for its bottlenose dolphins & the pretty seaside village of Llangrannog. There are attractions within easy driving distance such as the Rheidol Steam Railway, Devil's Bridge, Cilgerran Castle, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines & the Cenarth Falls. After a day exploring the wonderful sights, what better way to relax than to chill out around the appealing harbour, watching the spectacular sunset over Cardigan Bay & enjoying some local Welsh honey ice cream.
