Aberystwyth is ideal for a walking holiday base, situated right on the coastal path and benefiting from the nearby hills of the Cambrian Mountains.
Walks from Aberystwyth Town Centre
The most popular within the town, other than the mile walk along the Promenade, are what could be called the Three Hills walks which incorporate Constitution Hill, Penglais Nature Park and Pendinas. A route through the woods of Penglais Nature Park will take you ultimately to Clarach's neighbouring village Llangorwen. This walk is always a joy but especially so in the spring when bluebells are in bloom.
The Pen Dinas walk will take you up to the top of an Iron Age hill fort which dates back over 2,000 hears. it is believed to be the "Allt Faelor" (Maelor's Hill) of Celtic poetry. The monument, in the shape of an upturned cannon, was erected in 1852 in memory of the Duke of Wellington.
From the Tanybwlch side of the Harbour a level riverside path known as "Nanny Goat's Walk" extends to Rhydyfelin along what was once the Railway line to Carmarthen.
