Ciliau Aeron is about 4 miles inland from the seaside town of Aberaeron on the West Wales coast. The chalet is in a quiet, wooded area. About 1/4 mile away is the beautiful Ty Glyn Davis Trust walled garden which offers an attractive riverside walk, mainly on level ground. Quiet woodland walks run along the Aberaeron to Lampeter long distance footpath very close to the chalet. The National Trust house, Llanerchaeron, is about a mile away and is next to footpaths through woodland by the River Aeron. This is also excellent cycling country and there is a comprehensive cycle shop at Cilcennin about 2 miles away. Ty Glyn, a restaurant with rooms, is within 100 yards of the chalet and has a super restaurant and public bar.

Aberaeron (right) is a charming Georgian seaside town, famed for its multi-coloured houses. It has a range of interesting craft shops, a second-hand bookshop and many cafes and pubs. There is a yearly food fair held in the high summer and several other annual events for children and adults. Aberaeron is also on the superb coastal path network which runs south of Aberystwyth (there is a particularly lovely section above Llanrhystud). At Newquay, there is a long sandy beach which includes Cei Bach.

Newquay is a vibrant place (of Dylan Thomas fame) and houses the Marine Wildlife Centre. There are dolphin-watching boat trips and sea fishing trips from Newquay harbour. There are a number of excellent inns, restaurants and cafes. The university town of Lampeter, with its range of interesting independent shops, is about 9 miles from Ciliau Aeron. Aberystwyth (left) is about 18 miles away and houses the magnificent National Library of Wales. This is an unspoilt part of West Wales and is most worthy of exploration.
