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 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 service enables people to travel between local towns and villages along the south Ceredigion coast. The bus travels along a set route between Cardigan and New Quay and can also collect you from your home or other convenient location within the 'pick-up' zone which is shown on the Cardi Bach leaflet. .
