One of the highlights of this tour is the standard of the
accommodation. You will stay in carefully selected B&B’s,
guesthouses, country pubs and small hotels. We will always try and book
en-suite rooms wherever possible.
If you require single rooms within your party we will always try and
accommodate you subject to availability. A single supplement is payable.
A hearty breakfast is included each morning. Lunch and dinner are not
included but will be available either at your accommodation or nearby
pubs and restaurants.
Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate walkers with dogs as many of the accommodation providers do not accept pets.
There is a great wealth of information on the Ceredigion Coast Path website and this also has up to date diversions so it is worth a look before you set off on your walk.
Our itineraries and guide book are written from South to North although the itineraries can be reversed if required.
Additional Nights and Extensions
Many of our clients choose to add extra nights along the walk to sample more of the wonderful walking and attractions available on the Coast Path.
Cardigan, Aberystwyth and Borth are great choices for extra days.
The Ceredigion Coast Path is waymarked with wooden posts. The walk is on well- maintained footpaths, clifftops, beaches and woodland trails. It does involve some steep ascent and descent especially in the Northern Sections of the Path.
This walking holiday is available to solo walkers but as we incur additional baggage transfer costs there is a solo walker supplement payable.
Daily door to door baggage transfer is included in the cost of your holiday. We ask you to limit your luggage to one bag of up to 15kg per person.

Getting to Cardigan
If you are coming from Cardiff then the best option is to get a train to Carmarthen (1hr 40) then take a bus to Cardigan (1hr 35). From Swansea the train takes 50mins to Carmarthen and then the bus (1hr 35) which is the best option.
If you are taking your car you can park in either of the 2 designated long term car parks in Cardigan.
Getting from Ynys-las/Borth
There is no accommodation in Ynys-las so we will more often than not book you in to Borth for your last overnight
By Train—There is a train station in Borth and from here you can catch the train to Aberystwyth (25 mins) where you can connect for onward travel.
We are often asked the following questions and we hope that you will
find the answers useful. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have
any other questions.
How fit do I need to be?
We offer a range of itineraries with differing daily distances so you
can find an itinerary that suits your preferred level of activity. If
you currently don’t enjoy an active lifestyle we suggest regular walking
in hilly terrain supplemented by cardio vascular exercise prior to your
walk. A good gym or personal trainer will be able to draw up a
personalised training programme.
How far in advance do I need to book?
We suggest you book as soon as your plans are finalised as the Coast
Path is extremely popular especially over April/May and July/August. You
will find up to date availability on our website and we will always try
and accommodate your plans.
What personal equipment do I need?
You will need good walking shoes/boots (ideally waterproof),
comfortable walking clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, a daypack
and hats/gloves etc.
When is the best time of year?
This walking holiday is best enjoyed between March and mid October.
Springtime weather can be changeable but usually the driest time of
year. Autumn is another good time to walk with the path being less
crowded and the weather should still be good.
Am I able to take my dog?
Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate walkers with dogs as many of the accommodation providers we use do not accept pets.
What happens if I can’t walk a stage?
You can use public transport or local taxis to continue to your next overnight stop.
