Visit Aberaeron and the local area

We’re proud of Aberaeron and its surrounding area. A small planned Georgian town of around 1500 inhabitants, with the tidal harbour as its focal point and interesting independent shops.

Come and stay and you can do as much or as little as you wish.
Summer in Aberaeron is bustling, come and spend time crabbing with the family on the harbour wall, take long coastal walks or enjoy a sun-downer taking in the infamous Aberaeron sunsets.

Take a trip to the sea side during our quieter times and blow away the cobwebs and re-charge the batteries.

Watching the sun set on Cardigan Bay is one of our top tips as you enjoy a drink on the harbour wall, as is walking the Coastal Path to New Quay and Llangrannog, strolling to Llanerchaeron National Trust or further afield on some great cycling routes.

Aberaeron looks like a magical town from a mid-20th-century Ladybird children’s book, grand houses painted in bright rainbow colours lining the quay. The Harbourmaster is the prettiest of them, bold and commanding in blue, with silver bathtubs and Welsh blankets livening up its beautiful rooms.

Seafood for supper is an Aberaeron institution: visitors mixing with locals to eat Cardigan crab, crispy cockles and oysters from the Irish Sea.

Breakfasts is also delicious – the Harbourmaster beans with chorizo, eggs and handmade sourdough is a dream. You’ll be brushing up on your Cymraeg too with the bilingual menus.”
