On the Map: Extraordinary Stays in Ceredigion

Host Writer
Published 24/01/2022 On the Map: Extraordinary Stays in Ceredigion


If you're looking for an authentic introduction to all things Wales, look no further than Ceredigion.

The historic green county is seen as the centre of Welsh culture, with more than half of its population able to speak Welsh (so if you learn a few words yourself, you're likely to be greeted with an extra-warm welcome... or croeso!)

Ceredigion also combines sheep-dotted rural heaven with over 50 miles of sweeping coastline, featuring sandy beaches and a windswept, long-distance coastal path that's just begging to be explored.

Why not complete this idyllic holiday picture with a stay in a unique and characterful Ceredigion retreat?
