Aberaeron is a little town on the Welsh coast, and a place that no one outside of the west and middle parts of Wales has very little knowledge of. But it should be better known, as it is growing in great popularity and the summer months increasingly attract more people to its shores.
An Aberaeron holiday can cater for every type of visitor. The town is a terrific place to stay for a couple’s vacation looking for a secluded break and for larger groups or families aiming to have a fun filled Welsh holiday.
Many people drive through Aberaeron to get to the larger Aberystwyth, or to reach the famous Snowdonia mountain range. Therefore the town does everything it can to make passes by notice it and to appeal as a holiday destination. The town is made to look appealing with brightly painted houses, lovely family run shops and chic window displays that draw people in to stop and stay. It is said that Aberaeron prides itself in offering the highest levels of shopping standards and restaurant cuisine. The cafes and restaurants serve the best local produce and fish, freshly brought in from the sea, and the pubs off the real finest ales.
Holidaying in Aberaeron can be rejuvenating and captivating. Days spent chilling around the harbour, browsing the shops and watching the spectacular sunset equals pure relaxation. For visitors who wish to get the heart pumping, Aberaeron has many beautiful cycle routes in the area and for couples or dog walkers there are many inland walks. The town has a leisure centre, a swimming pool and many sports facilities to keep the whole family amused on the wetter days.
In sunny weather the harbour is the best place to be. Fishing is particularly popular and throughout the summer the town holds many colourful festivals, exhibitions and sporting tournaments. Plus the two beaches, one on either side of the harbour, allow sunbathing and good surf conditions with parking allowing easy access to the water. From the harbour the Coastal Voyage boat can be caught to explore the Heritage Coast and Special Area of Conservation of Cardigan Bay, ideal for nature lovers and selfie photo takers.
The Snowdonia National Park is to the north of Aberaeron and The Brecon Beacons National Park lies to the south east. These places of natural beauty offer a full day out for couples looking for romantic walks and picnics on hill tops, for families on holiday looking for water sports on the lakes and for dogs who wish to use this natural playground to give their owners a run around.
Any Aberaeron accommodation promises to be as relaxed and as unique as the area itself. Cottages, small bed and breakfasts and large hotels give a wide choice of places to stay whilst experiencing this beautiful location. See our full catalogue for more details.
