Adventure awaits in Aberystwyth

Experience a dynamic coastal town like no other in Aberystwyth. Boasting a 13th-century castle, Wales’ oldest pier, the highest number of pubs per square mile in the UK, and a university, this is the place to come if you’re looking for a holiday that combines the best of nature, history, and modern culture. There is so much to do in this stunning region of Wales; the hardest part will be deciding how you want to spend your holiday.

From mountain biking to whitewater rafting, local culinary delights to buzzy taprooms, you’ll have the luxury of choice in this diverse region. Relax and unwind amidst Aber’s sandy shores or up the ante with thrill-seeking adventures – it’s up to you. Whatever you decide, we have a fabulous range of Aberystwyth holiday cottages designed to suit every taste, preference, and budget. 

Experience Aberystwyth like a local

Begin your day with a hearty Welsh breakfast at local café Sophie’s – currently rated as the best brekkie on TripAdvisor. Afterwards, stroll down to the seafront and experience The Royal Pier – the first pier ever built in Wales. From there, you’ll have a brilliant vantage point with a 360-degree view of the surrounding ocean.

If you fancy seeing Aberystwyth from above, the Cliff Railway is a charming funicular train that opened in 1896 and has been awarded grade-listed status. En route, see if you can spot climbers bouldering along the sea wall. Aber is well-known for this, and if conditions are good, you’re likely to see some brave members of the public scaling the rocks.

For something adventurous, Nant Yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre is a short 18 minute drive away and offers mountain biking, horse riding, red kite feeding and a range of walking trails. Or, if you’d rather stay in town, Aberystwyth’s Ultracomida Deli is a Spanish deli where you can indulge in a gorgeous lunch including homemade sourdough, cured meats, fancy cheeses, and other culinary delights. 

Wrap up your day with a delicious dinner at Medina, where you can enjoy great, fresh food in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
