Cardigan Golf Club is a cliff top golf course enjoying panoramic views over the river Teifi Estuary and Cardigan Bay. A testament to its current standing is that it has hosted recent Welsh Golfing Union championships as well as international matches. Amongst its most notable features are the outstanding views from every part of the course - Cardigan Bay, the River Teifi estuary and the Preseli Hills in the distance. On a clear day Bardsey Island and the Lleyn Peninsula can be seen across the bay. In spring and early summer the course is a blaze of colour with yellow flowered gorse and bluebells featuring on nearly every hole. With undulating fairways, boldly contoured greens and strategically placed bunkers, the course provides a good test of golf for players of all levels. Whilst it is a mixture of links and meadowland, it has exceptional drainage abilities and is playable all year round. Indeed, many believe that it is at its best in Spring and late Autumn. Cardigan Golf Club prides itself on welcoming visiting golfers and societies every day of the week by prior arrangement.

Visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery, an island nature reserve, dramatic cliffs, clear blue sea, maritime flowers.

Please Note: Dogs are allowed, but must be kept close to you and on a lead. We recommend contacting the centre for a full list of guidelines.

Beaches near Cormorant Cottage

St Dogmaels
Near the mouth of the River Teifi, on the southern side opposite Cardigan, stands St Dogmaels. It is essentially a seafaring village, as examination of headstones in the churchyard will testify. The remains of an Abbey founded by Robert Fitz-Martin in the 12th century are worth a visit. Poppit Sands a little further down the estuary has a beautiful and extensive beach which denotes the start (or the end!) of the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
Poppit Sands
Poppit Sands is a sandy beach, backed with sand dunes at the mouth of the Teifi Estuary. It is the beginning, or end, of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The proximity of the beach to the town of Cardigan has made it a very popular venue for visitors, but bathers should be aware of dangerous currents and heed the warning signs and lifeguard flags. It is a blue flag bathing beach making it an ideal holiday location. Lifeguards patrol the beach between July and August from 10am to 6pm each day. Dog restrictions apply to a section of the beach between 1st May and 30th September, but the rest of the beach remains dog friendly. 
Ceibwr Bay
Ceibwr is an attractive little bay, totally undeveloped and the haunt of shy seabirds and Grey Atlantic seals, with the nearby village of Moylegrove within walking distance. The cliff walking is high, craggy and awesomely beautiful whatever the weather or season. The cliffs show evidence of impressive forces at work circa 400 million years ago when Ceibwr was created - admire the elegant folds and scrolls in the rock face. The ruins of a fine Celtic fortress can be found on the northern cliff edge. The more romantic can envisage the smugglers taking advantage of such a remote spot along with the ideal locality of the cave on the beach. This area is for those seeking a quiet holiday near the amenities of Cardigan and Newport but away from the more popular sandy beaches and busy centres. There is a car park with toilets in Moylegrove and roadside parking closer to the cove with space for approx 20-25 vehicles.
Tresaith
Tresaith is a delightful little sandy beach, very popular with families during the summer offering safe swimming and rock pools. There is a waterfall at the northern end of the beach which is a result of glacial activity when a glacier blocked and diverted the route of the river Saith, causing it to cascade in a waterfall directly onto the beach. Dolphins can be spotted almost daily throughout the Summer.
Newport
A superb long stretch of beach with lots of room to play games and sail boats. The beach is backed by a popular golf course with club house. At low tide you can walk across the estuary to Newport Parrog, and the walk around the river bank through a bird sanctuary to the road bridge crossing is always enjoyable. Visitors should be careful of dangerous currents around the river. Nature has given Newport a spectacular setting of sea, castle and the towering Carn Ingli – at 1100-feet this makes for a wonderful view from the beach. Access to the beach is easy – no steps or cliffs.
Newport
This large, picturesque horseshoe shaped bay is generally well protected from the winds and waves that pound much of the Pembrokeshire coastline. The historic town of Newport stands near the mouth of the River Nevern where there are 2 beaches - one on each side of the estuary. The Parrog is on the Southern side, and although this is the more sheltered beach, unpredictable currents make bathing dangerous. However, the area is rich in prehistoric sites, including Pentre Ifan burial chamber. To find the beach follow the signs from Newport and the A487. It is dog friendly all year round. 
Aberfforest
Aberfforest Beach is a small bay made up of a mixture of sand and shingle, situated between two majestic cliffs and just under two miles from the local villages of Newport and Dinas. 
Accessible via a long footpath, which leads along a wide farm track (follow Aberfforest signs) almost all the way to the beach, or alternatively along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from Cwm Yr Eglwys, this beach is quiet and peaceful - perfect for a relaxing day by the seaside, a picnic or taking a few beautiful photographs.  
Aberfforest is a great beach for swimming and kayaking, and is a popular haunt for seals. 
A special little gem that you mustn’t miss out on, is the secret waterfall which is nestled in the wooded valley just behind the beach. It is definitely worth a visit.
Cwm Yr Eglwys
Cwm-yr-Eglwys is a petite, eye-catching cove popular with families, kayakers and sea swimmers. Overlooking the picturesque shingle and pebble beach are the remains of the 12th Century church of St Brynach's, which was destroyed during a fierce storm in 1859. To find Cwm-yr-Eglwys follow the narrow, twisting road off the A487 just to the east of Dinas Cross.
Pwllgwaelod
A small sandy beach with cliffs on either side means that the west facing Pwllgwaelod is unsuitable for most 'forces-of-nature' sports, however it is very handy for launching small boats and kayaks/canoes. There are low rocks on both sides to clamber over and numerous rockpools. The beach does however offer good views across Fishguard Bay to Fishguard Harbour and a short walk of a kilometre or so takes you across the southern end of Dinas Island to the beach at Cwm-yr-Eglwys.
Cwmtydu
Primarily a pebble beach, Cwmtydu Beach is a small cove with plenty of rockpools. A popular place for spotting dolphins as seals, mean that this cove is often known locally as Seals Bay, due to the frequent views of seals lounging on the rocks. Cwmtydu Beach is dog friendly all year round.

Had a really lovely week, views over the estuary and having the lounge at the top make this cottage really special. Lots of lovely walks, with or without driving. Would totally recommend the cottage and the area, Thank you


Daniela and Simon

We spent a great week in this lovely cottage, Perfectly appointed for great walks, beach with amazing views, The Ferry Inn offers great food, friendly staff and an amazing location-just a 5 minute walk down the road, Booked a boat ride to Ramsay Island from St Davids, which was thoroughly enjoyable-dogs welcome too. Tenby is a lovely little place to visit for a day trip, Highly recommend a visit to Pembroke Castle, We took bus to Moylegrove and walked back to the cottage-amazing views along the way, The St Dogmaels market on a Tuesday is well worth a visit-we bought great pies and pasties from one of the stalls, Overall a great trip and we will definitely be back. Thank you

The property is approached via an A-road, then approximately 2 miles along narrow country lanes. House is accessed via a steep driveway down leading to a parking area with a labelled parking bay for Cormorant guests. This is on a level asphalted surface with the allocated bay only a few metres from the front door.

Front door reached over one step of brick height.

Shared garden extends over 3 acres, including a tennis court, orchard and fish pond, sloping down towards the Teifi estuary. It is accessed from the parking area via a sloped grassy track and then over lawn, gravelled paths, steps and inclines. Metal hand rails are fitted by both main sets of steps within the garden. The top gardens are mainly flower beds with the lower levels laid to lawn. There is direct, gated access to the estuary via a now disused, grassed over slipway or via steep slate steps.

Care needed as there are some steep steps, unfenced drops and unfenced water in the grounds.

There is a level gravelled area with outdoor seating accessed via the front door which is raised slightly (one brick high) from the parking area.

Ground floor facilities include whb/wc, washing machine in utility room and double bedroom.

First floor facilities include lounge, dining area, kitchen and main bathroom/overhead shower/whb/wc.
