There are an abundance of local walks, footpaths and bridle paths. There is a circular footpath leading through Penlan Coastal Cottages fields down to the village of Aberporth and its beaches and back up going through some wonderful scenic places, showing views of Cardigan Bay, one moment and then wandering through wooded areas the next.
Once in the village of Aberporth you can connect to the Ceredigion Coastal Path.
Most of the local attractions have also created walks within their boundaries such as Llanerchaeron and the Welsh Wildlife Centre.
Visit Cardigan has several local maps of walks that can be downloaded and we do have information in all the cottages of some of the local walks.

The Wales Coast Path is now officially open
Wales is now the first country in the world to have a formal trail the whole way around its coast.
Furthermore, the Wales Coast Path (which is 870 miles long) can now join up with Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail to provide 1,030 miles of walking opportunities right around the Welsh border. The sheer size and brilliance of the Path has already received public recognition with Coastal Wales being acknowledged as the world’s top destination to visit in 2012 by Lonely Planet, the travel guide experts.
The Coast Path winds its way through towns and villages, across cliff tops and sandy beaches, sometimes darting inland before emerging once again at a sheltered cove or tiny hamlet that you would forever miss when travelling by car, bus or train. It will take you from the mouth of the River Dee, along the north Wales coast with its seaside towns, over the Menai Strait onto the Isle of Anglesey, from the Llyn Peninsula down the majestic sweep of Cardigan Bay, through Britain’s only coastal National Park in Pembrokeshire, along miles of golden sand, via Gower with its stunning scenery, along the waterfront of Cardiff Bay and Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, to the market town of Chepstow.
