Like the bordering county of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion was a favourite spot of the poet Dylan Thomas, who took inspiration from the beautiful surrounding area and wrote 'Under Milk Wood’ based on his experiences here. Indeed, like many counties in this region, it has played a major role in Arthurian legends over the years and the almost mystical scenery and spiritual landscapes ensure that even today, you can imagine the magical nature of these legends coming to life.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy a whole range of different activities in Ceredigion and the Ystwyth and Rheidol trails in particular, offer some challenging but rewarding routes. Amongst the open hills and remoteness of many areas of the countryside is Bwlch Nant yr Arian, a mountain biking route with 3 different trails. If going at a gentler pace is more amenable, then donning some sturdy shoes and taking off on foot around the glorious landscape is a fantastic experience and you can witness wildlife including warblers, deer or birds of prey on your travels. From the low down river valley walks, to the tranquil coastal paths and windswept mountainous trails, there is a walking route in Ceredigion to please all fitness levels.
Golfing is a particular sport that is held dear in the county and golfers of all abilities and handicaps can find challenging courses within its borders. Aberystwyth, Llanrhystud, Cardigan and Borth & Ynyslas all have stimulating courses with links conditions and great views over the coastline. Aberystwyth itself is a market town that is perhaps famous for its university but also has a great vibe to it. A bustling student population means that it holds lively and energetic nightlife, combined with the history of the Aberystwyth castle and nostalgia of its old town centre.
The town of Cardigan has windy narrow streets with small independent shops and hosts various festivals throughout the year including local food festivals, Christmas fairs and the Aberaeron Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs for kids and adults with a sense of fun. Indeed, culturally Cardigan is significant with the largest percentage of the population speaking Welsh as a fluent language.
Ceredigion is perhaps not as well-known as other counties in Wales, however it is a real gem just waiting to be discovered. It has a very typically Welsh landscape with mining and railway towns nestled amongst the acres of green hills and valleys. With various activities for everyone in the family, an active nightlife scene in the University town of Aberystwyth and a traditional charm, the county is one of the best areas that Wales has to offer.
