Exploring Ceredigion

Take a look at opportunities for enjoying Ceredigion's coast and countryside. Explore the Coast Path, other promoted routes as well as Local Nature Reserve and a range of countryside sites.

The new Ceredigion Coast Path follows a 60 miles / 96 km route between the Teifi and Dyfi estuaries. The Coast Path links towns and villages dotted along the spectacular Cardigan Bay coastline.


The network of public paths offers an excellent way to explore Ceredigion. The diverse countryside offers a range of opportunities for the walker, from gentle coastal walks to rugged mountain hikes. There are also many routes for horse riders to follow.


Ceredigion has three Local Nature Reserves, all near Aberystwyth - Coed y Cwm, Pen Dinas and Tanybwlch and Parc Natur Penglais. These sites have been designated because of their importance for wildlife value and their value for community enjoyment and education.


Have you visited other countryside sites, woodlands and other sites managed by the Coast and Countryside Section?


Forget about the car: there is extensive network of local bus services linking towns and villages in Ceredigion. There is also a train service along the Dyfi estuary to Aberystwyth.


The Cardi Bach operated up to 30th September 2014 (the Cardi Bach was supported by the RDP and the current programme is reaching its conclusion).
