Welcome to our website about Cardigan and St Dogmaels – two towns that straddle the river Teifi in west Wales. Here you will find information about attractions, activities, where you can shop, where you can eat and much more.
Both Cardigan and St Dogmaels are bustling towns and whether you are a local or a visitor on holiday – there is plenty to see and do. Regular markets, great beaches, lots of places to walk including a great section of the ‘All Wales Coast Path’ and heaps of Restaurants, Pubs and Cafe’s are sure to keep you fueled up and on the go.
The area is steeped with historic buildings and ancient sites abound in and around both Cardigan and St Dogmaels, so if a good dose of antiquities is what’s in order then you won’t be disappointed. Neolithic standing stones, Iron Age hill forts, an Abbey, Castle’s, an ancient fishing trap and a great selection of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture will keep you happy for days if not weeks.
Fancy a bit of culture? There are two theatre’s and during the summer the Abbey in St Dogmaels is home to various productions that you can enjoy – take a blanket, something to sit on and watch an open air play whilst the sun sets behind the Abbey.
If a little action or adventure are in order there are plenty of activity providers to take advantage of – you could try paragliding, kayaking, windsurfing and a host of other outdoor activities. There is even a dry ski slope just a short drive north.
Regular busses service both towns and either can be reached easily within an hour of the M4 to the south and the university town of Aberystwyth to the north if approaching by car.
If you’re looking for accommodation in the St Dogmaels or Cardigan area, then we have a great section on self catering holiday cottages in the area also.
Our lists and articles are not definitive, but we do try and add as much information as we can gather.
