Cardigan Bay Cottages
Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Cardigan/Cardigan Bay, Wales.
Enjoy a refreshingly slower pace with a stay in a Cardigan holiday cottage, gateway to spectacular coast and countryside.
The old market town of Cardigan oozes timeless appeal and is blessed with a fabulous natural setting - on the River Teifi estuary, just a hop from the Heritage Coast of Cardigan Bay.
This is superb walking country! For exhilarating cliff-top walks, follow the river seaward and join the Coastal Paths, north into Ceredigion or south into Pembrokeshire. Look out for dolphins, grey seals and porpoises along the way.
Or head inland to the trails zigzagging through the deeply wooded Teifi Valley, a wilderness that's home to otters, buzzards and leaping salmon. The region is also an angler's haven, with world-class sea trout.
Families may choose from a string of gorgeous beaches like Poppit Sands, Aberporth and Penbryn, almost a mile of sands protected by The National Trust. And don't forget those glorious sunsets dipping into the sea - for a front-row view, sample a sundowner at The Ship on Tresaith Beach!
Explore Cardigan's twisting streets, noting the attractive Georgian and Victorian architecture housing traditional shops, cosy inns and tempting restaurants. Worth a closer look are the Guildhall and indoor market, the riverside Heritage Centre, Theatre Mwldlan and Cardigan Castle.
The annual line-up of events ranges from a Walking Festival and Outdoor Shakespeare to the fascinating Sea Trout Challenge. Foodies, meanwhile, will relish the River & Food Festival, which celebrates the amazing diversity of local produce.
And if that's not got your taste buds watering, our Cardigan cottages certainly will!
