Top activities and things to do
If you're short on ideas, below we've listed some of the best things to see and do whilst you're here in West Wales.
Around the site...
You don't even have to leave the campsite to find things to do! Onsite, we have a play area for the children, and our newly created Coedmor Jubilee Woods. The woods are perfect for spotting wildlife or simply getting away from it all and enjoying the natural world.
There's nothing quite like coming back to your pitch or bell tent after a busy day of exploring the local area and getting a campfire going, chilling out at sunset to take in stunning views of the night sky that we get here at Coedmor Camping.
We also have farm animals for you to meet, a treat for adults and kids alike! We have Coco and Zara, our donkeys, Bill and Ben the pygmy goats, Sunny and Luna our goats, Boi and our other pet lambs too. Come and say hello!
There's a plethora of quality beaches nearby, including Poppit Sands, Tresaith, Aberporth and Mwnt. Aberporth has been awarded with a blue flag (as has Poppit Sands) for its excellent water quality, is easily accessed with amenities nearby. There are two beaches at Aberporth, Dolwen Beach restricts dogs from May to end September however, dogs are welcome throughout the year on Dyffryn beach. Tresaith is a beautiful beach with a lovely waterfall.
Mwnt is not as accessible as the likes of Aberporth, but has a refreshments and toilets, as well as a fourteenth-century church overlooking the sands. Mwnt is one of the best places to spot dolphins in Ceredigion, often seen swimming, playing and feeding in the bay below.
2) Coast Path
Coedmor is close to the northern reaches of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and the Cardigan/Pembrokeshire length of the Wales Coast Path. Offering stunning views of Cardigan Bay and the opportunity to spot some special wildlife, walking a section of the coast path is an experience not to be missed!
Cardigan, our local market town, has something for everyone. Only a short drive away, Cardigan is layered in history, complete with its own 900 year-old castle, where the first Esteddfod was held in 1176. There are many boutique shops and restaurants in Cardigan, as well as its own independent cinema, Theatr Mwldan, for the rainy days. Cardigan being nearby makes it ideal for getting in provisions and topping up with fuel when you need it.
4) Welsh Wildlife Centre
Just outside Cardigan is the Welsh Wildlife Centre, situated in the Teifi marshes. The nature reserve is a lovely spot for the family, and has both walking and cycling trails around the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife on the marshes that can be observed from the hides, including kingfishers, otters and birds of prey. Well worth a visit!
5) Castell Henllys Iron Age fort
Another gem that brings the rich Celtic of West Wales to life is Castell Henllys Iron Age fort. Complete with reconstructed roundhouses, outbuildings and even some Celts, Castell Henllys makes for an insightful and enjoyable experience. Wander amongst the woods and go back in time and glimpse what life was like for our Celtic forbears. During the summer months there are workshops and demonstrations of arts and crafts - from weaving to bread making and even weapon handling!
6) Cardigan Bay & Wildlife Tours
Cardigan Bay is designated as a Special Area of Conservation, where dolphins regularly pass through, with sightings of other species of dolphins and whales not uncommon. There are a number of tour operators that will take you around the Bay, such as Bay to Remember, and up close to some magnificent wildlife, including dolphins, whales, seals and seabirds.
