Local Attractions

Ty Canol Ancient Woodland


Ty Canol is part of the largest block of ancient woodland in West Wales; it's in an area famous for achaeological sites.


Ty Canol NNR is one of the most important sites in the UK for lichens, and the trees, exposed rocks and low-level crags found in the reserve are covered with them. 


Note: Just the most magical place to visit - like a fairy garden in parts!

Very steep hill down to the woods past some very impressive rocky outcrops.

Traeth Bach 


This is a gorgeous 'Secret Beach' accessed from Penbryn Beach carpark along the coast path.  Or from Llangrannog in the other direction.  It is only accessible from the coast path and is a very steep climb down from the path itself - hiking boots highly recommended!

Car Park for Llangrannog: Link to Google Map


Not for the faint-hearted. It is a good walk from Penbryn and a scramble back up the cliff from the beach back to the Coast path.

ABERPORTH BEACH


Aberporth is a lovely sandy dog-friendly beach.  Cafe, pub, toilets, showers and Lifeguards during the summer months.  A great place to swim, paddleboard, surf etc.  Lessons can be booked locally for most activities.


Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and seals!


National Wool Museum 


A lovely restored historic mill exploring the Welsh wool industry.  Very well set-up museum, about 20 minutes drive away.  Loads of information and excellent exhibits to see, along with lots of hands-on activities.


Well-stocked coffee shop and gift shop with some beautiful Welsh wool blankets to buy.

Ffynone Woods and Waterfall 


There are lots of paths through and around the woods at Ffynone.  It is a stunning mature woodland with well marked and very accessible paths.  A map board is available in the car park.  Advised to take a photo of the map as mobile signal is patchy deeper into the woods.


The waterfall is in a lovely little clearing about 5 min walk from the carpark and is a beautiful place for a very cold wild swim!

PENBRYN BEACH


Penbryn is a beautiful National Trust beach.  Plentiful parking at the top of a narrow lane down to the beach.  This is fairly steep and about 5mins walk.  The car park is on the coast path, so you can walk left through the woods to Tresaith, or right, along the headland to Llangrannog.


Toilets and fabulous cafe - The Plwmp Tart - in the car park.
