Aberystwyth is a charming seaside town on the West Coast of Wales in the county of Ceredigion. Being a seaside town, it offers a pleasing choice of holiday cottages for rent in all seasons. Wales’s largest and award winning arts centre is located in Ceredigion, the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, and is widely recognised as a national flagship for the arts. The Arts Centre presents all forms of arts including drama, dance, music, film, new media, and community arts, which make it an ideal place for a family day trip. Aberystwyth is also home to a cliff railway that offers a birds eye view of thousands of square miles of land and seascape, and offers superb coast and countryside views. If steam trains are more your thing, The Vale of Rheidol Railway runs from Aberystwyth to The Devils Bridge and taking the walk along the nature trail reveals a spectacular 300ft waterfalls.
For literary and history lovers, The National Library of Wales is a grand building with the aim of collecting every book, photograph, film and piece of music made in the country. The library is very accommodating to visitors with constant guided tours and all material accessible to visitors. The nearby Cambrian Mountains offer an ideal playground for those more interested in outdoor activities such as mountain biker and walkers, of which there are several designated trails for each. A café and two children’s play areas sit out of the way, overlooking the peaceful nearby lake.
