countryside with scenery that you'll never forget. It has an excellent
selection of individually owned shops, pubs, supermarkets, cinema etc.,
with an array of places to have morning coffee, snack lunches or a romantic
evening meal in one of the local restaurants on the sea front.
Further inland, the quiet Welsh countryside - a walkers'
paradise and an area full of surprises has an abundance of local inns
and craft centres ideal for a relaxing lunch or an afternoon tea whilst
exploring the many country lanes in Ceredigion. For the energetic there

walk along the promenade, a round of golf on one of the local courses,
a game of tennis or indoor swimming. In Clarach Bay and Aberystwyth
there is always plenty to do and see.
