Walks around the Teifi Valley Cardigan Bay Coastal Paths & Preseli Hills - Cardigan awarded 'Walkers are Welcome'
Cardigan and its surrounding countryside is an unspoilet and largely
undiscovered area of outstanding natural beauty.
There are dramatic cliff-top paths with views of extraordinary rock formations
and stunning wildlife, tranquil walks in deeply wooded valleys and challenging
climbs in the Preseli hills.
The walks explore these main areas:
Hinterland around Cardigan
This is an area of great beauty and variety with several outstanding features
dramatic grandeur of Cilgerran gorge with its imposing castle ruins.
award-winning Wildlife Centre, where otters and red
kites can be seen.
Falls, with its Coracle Museum and breathtaking riverside walk.
beautiful Teifi estuary with the wide open beach of Poppit
Sands and rugged
cliffs of Cardigan Island.
To the south, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is famous for its
unique views, rock formations and seals, whilst to
the north there is a lesser known but equally beautiful Ceredigion Marine Heritage
Coastline and Cerdigion Coast Path. Coastal walks in
this area afford the chance to see regular sightings of dolphins,
the picturesque Mwnt church and the dramatic cliff paths at Llangrannog.
Home of the famous Preseli Bluestones used for Stonehenge with
its open moorland, Neolithic monuments and sweeping sea views this area is
a serious walker's paradise.
