Cwmtydu sits at the mouth of a quiet and secluded valley, offering a retreat if that’s what you want, but there’s also a wealth of activities available in the area.

Walking, along the Coast Path, through woodland, and across country, with walks to suit all abilities, and the Cardi Bach bus extending the range as far as Cardigan to the South and New Quay to the North.

Fishing, kayaking, dingy sailing, wind surfing, climbing, cycling, diving, watching the wildlife (birds, seals, and dolphins), and surfing are all possible in Cwmtydu or nearby. There are boat trips and other water sports in New Quay.

You can bring your own equipment and store it safely in the boat house, or contact us to find out about equipment and training available from ICY UK Ltd. with themed courses in the Autumn and Spring.


ICY will provide themed courses in the Spring and Autumn this year, and can provide further courses for families or groups. The activities you choose can be tailored to meet your requirements - you design your own itinerary. You can book individual days or whole weeks and transport is available for up to 8 people. Contact ty Cwch if you want to book a place or design your own course.

There's the landscape to discover, towns to visit and explore, Cardigan, New Quay, Aberaeron (a rare example of a planned Regency town), and the market towns of Newcastle Emlyn and Lampeter.

There are several National Trust properties: the beaches at Penbryn and Mwnt; Lanerchaeron, designed by John Nash; there's also the food, the drink, and the people. Wales’ newest distillery, Dà Mhìle, near Llandsul (try the seaweed gin) and Teifi Cheese, Gwinllan Llaethiw Vineyard near Aberaeron, several micro-breweries, and at the top of the valley a farm selling organic vegetables.
