Perfect in every way! We saw 2 Dolphins at Aberporth whilst having a picnic on the beach. Beautiful beach at Cwmtydu where we spotted a seal from the beach and a nice shallow stream for our Westie to swim in. Honey farm near Newquay worth a visit with live hives to observe and a meadery that smells amazing! Beautiful home-made cakes in the cafe too! Mwnt beach (dog not allowed in Summer) but definitely worth a visit for beautiful scenery. Cenarth village beautiful picnic spot with salmon jumping from the river! Best food we had was picnic items purchased at the St Dogmaels Tuesday market - especially the potted crab, fresh bread and organic cheese! Fish and chips in the village was gorgeous. Pizza at The Pizzatipi by the river in Cardigan - unique Tipi experience even in the rain! Gallery in Cardigan for food 'Pendrae Art' also lovely. The Ferry is good for a drink! Every person we have met has been so friendly and helpful - would love to be here at Christmas! Thank you do much for everything, our home from home in the most beautiful location, you are so lucky to live here.
