Pet-friendly cottages & accommodation in Aberystwyth in Ceredigion
Aberystwyth is a coastal town in Cardigan Bay which is renowned nationally for its well-respected university. Dogs will love Aberystwyth for its beautiful coastline and views over the bay. Sat at the confluence of the Rivers Ystwith and Afon Rheidol, it is quite remote for a town of its size, but this fact hasn’t had a negative effect. The town, set on the West Wales coast, is full of cool shops and dog-friendly cafes and pubs to investigate. Take the hound for a lovely seaside walk along the promenade past the lovely pier to the town harbour. Watch boats come and go and share a bag of fish of chips whilst watch the sea waves. Dogs are permitted on the Vale of Rheidol Railway, a narrow-gauge course that runs between the town and Devil’s Bridge, 12 miles inland. It’s a fun way to see the surrounding countryside without wearing your legs out. Also, check out the grounds of Aberystwyth Castle which provide some love views near the harbour and across the bay.
Aberystwyth offers the best of both worlds for visitors; it is a fine town with all the amenities and evening entertainment you’d need as well as being on the doorstep of some fantastic Ceredigion countryside and rural Welsh coastline. Pick up the Ceredigion Coast Path for some superb cliff-top walks with your dog. A bit further afield for you and your hound is the Dyfi National Nature Reserve (10 miles), a huge area of open space where you can go to bird watch or spot wildlife and rare insects in amongst the dunes. There are several trails across Dyfi Reserve’s three distinct areas: peat bog, dunes, and the estuary. A petrified forest can be seen at low tide on occasion here at Dyfi too, a sight to behold if you time your visit right.
