This part of Wales is extremely popular with holidaymakers looking for an away from it all holiday, as well as those seeking an adventure-filled break. Penbryn beach, owned by the National Trust, is a real joy, with its mile-long stretch of golden sand and gentle waters that are safe for bathing. The coastal path runs from Penbryn, with LLangranog in the north and Tresaith to the south giving spectacular views and some excellent birdwatching opportunities, with choughs, peregrine falcons, rock pipits and even red-throated divers often spotted along this stretch of coast. This part of Cardigan Bay is, of course, known for its resident dolphins and seals, and lucky visitors will be delighted to spot these, often quite close to the shore.
A visit to nearby New Quay should increase the chances of seeing some dolphins, as these beautiful, friendly creatures often swim close to the harbour wall, and volunteers are usually on hand to help visitors spot them swimming nearby. Regular boat trips are available from New Quay, for those who'd like to see the coastline from the water. New Quay is also well known as a place where Dylan Thomas lived for a while, and its widely believed that many of New Quays residents at the time became the inspiration for characters in Thomas's most well-known work, Under Milk Wood.
History lovers will also find much of interest locally. Nearby Cardigan Castle has recently undergone an extensive restoration programme and now boasts an engaging and informative visitor experience for all ages. Cilgerran Castle, just south of Cardigan, and now an imposing ruin, is also well worth a visit. Going back even further in history, this area has many standing stones and other ancient sites, including the inscribed Corbalengi stone, between Penbryn and Tresaith.
Visitors looking to eat out during their stay are spoiled for choice, with many excellent restaurants and pubs just a short distance away. The Plwmp Tart, in Penbryn itself, is great for a light lunch or afternoon tea and cakes, whilst both the Pentre Arms good food excellent beer, (recommended in the Times 3.5.17) and the Ship Inn, in nearby Llangrannog, offer a wide choice of meals for both lunch and dinner.
From a quiet and relaxing holiday in a tranquil location to a more adventurous trip walking the coastal path, kayaking or paddle boarding in Cardigan Bay, there really is something for everyone in Ceredigion, and Tan-y-Bryn is perfectly located to access both coast and countryside.
