Aberystwyth provides a marriage of both coast and countryside with scenery that you’ll never forget. Beautiful sunsets over the bay are enhanced only by the majestic backdrop of the mountains of North Wales or even a glimpse of the resident family of bottlenose dolphins. A land of contrasts, the towering cliffs between Aberystwyth and Clarach give way to the wide open spaces of the Dyfi estuary and coastal salt flats at Ynyslas.
Inland, and only minutes away from the coast, a patchwork of lush green hills, leafy lanes and hedgerows laden with briar and honeysuckle give way to mountain scenery where a gurgling brook or bird of prey will be your only company. The seasons bring an ever-changing beauty from the breathtaking bluebell woods in spring to the snow-clad mountain tops in winter. Take your time and find the hidden villages in the hills, enjoy the crystal clear mountain streams or the rivers quietly flowing through peaceful glades. This is walking country that you’ll want to return to time and time again.
