This is an amazing Italian restaurant in the wilds of West Wales! Homemade pasta, deftly sauced, wide range of fish and other main dishes. Perfect ending to a day out exploring the coast line between Cardigan and New Quay. This is down what feels like a mere track. Do not worry, persevere. Look their website up for better directions. Wales is the country of hidden places, and this restaurant confirms my view.

This place has the advantage of being right on the Harbour. Lots of people love it. Get a reservation in the restaurant. The bar is loud and the food not as good. Personally, I prefer one o the other restaurants recommended in my list below but this is handy if in Aberaeron.

aking a drive to Pantyfod gardens is well-worth getting out the OS map for. This drive will take you up towards some spectacular scenery beyond Tregaro. There a several acres of gardens to explore and a wonderful pizza terrace in the summer. The pizza is worth the drive. Baked in a proper kiln. bake-house. Hard to categorize whether this is a place to eat, sightseeing, parks & nature -- definitely all of these but Airbnb forces me to pick just one.

Learn about the tradition of Welsh quilts from the authority -- Jen Jones. Shop at ground level and usually an exhibit upstairs. Lovely. The cafe across the street, Granny's cafe is the best in Lampeter, selling lovely cakes, ice cream and old-fashioned sweets.

Parks & Nature

Best beach in a small cove. When the tide is out you can walk quite a distance. Beach food, pub, and other small shops are practically right on the beach. Lovely drive down the backroads to this small village. Visit the statue of Saint Grannog overlooking the village for a lovely view.
