Two great attractions and a pub lunch – all in one day

Llanerchaeron House and Aberaeron


Some two and a half miles inland from Aberaeron is the National Trust owned Georgian Villa of Llanerchaeron which was designed by John Nash. This is a real gem in the Ceredigion countryside being practically untouched for nearly 200 years.

On-site there is plenty to discover including the Georgian Villa, a working farm, walled garden and a lake to explore. Also don’t miss the Geler Jones collection of early 20th century agricultural equipment, or the cafe. You can also purchase estate produced produce too.

The Harbour Master

Overlooking the entrance to Aberaeron Harbour on Quay Parade is the Harbour Master. Serving up mouth watering food including Cardigan Bay crab, Welsh sirloin steaks and Welsh rarebit amongst other choices, and if you can hold out on the desert – just down the parade towards the Town is the Honey Ice Cream shop, we thoroughly recommend chocolate.


Sitting on the Cardigan Bay coastline almost exactly half way between Aberystwyth and Cardigan is the picturesque harbour Town of Aberaeron.

The first thing you may notice about Aberaeron is the shear amount of Georgian Architecture which can be seen from almost anywhere in the Town. Many of the buildings house shops, pubs and restaurants, but there are streets of pretty lime washed houses to take in too. Do also look around for some marvelously ornate house name plaques.

During August there is the annual Festival of Welsh Cobs and Ponies, held on the green in the centre of the Town and well worth spending some time at if you are in Town whilst it is on.
