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.

A collapsed cave which gives stunning views to those walking and kayaking in the area, and lots of intricate tunnels seen only by kayakers. Access is denied during the autumn when seals gather to pup, and the walkers path is steep and narrow in parts.

 

Beaches near The Boathouse

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.

Set in the Eastern Preselis, Foel Drygarn (also known as Foel Trigarn) can only be accessed via a footpath, however there is nearby parking. It is the remains of a large Iron Age Hill-fort covering almost 4 hectacres, with three defended enclosures, and three large cairns each three metres in height. Historians state that it is likely to have been a heavily populated fortified village which was built sometime between 650BC and 100AD.

Fantastic accommodation in a brilliant location! Lots of superb walks-both along the coastal path and through the gorge at Cilgerran. Excellent Sunday lunch at the Ferry Inn. We'll be back!


Karen and Peter

Perfect! Warm welcome from Venita with great tips on places to visit and eat etc. Comfortable and restful base with good local food, walks, bird life and pubs. Good Cider and Ale at the rustic White Hart Inn and Sunday lunch at the Ferry Inn was fantastic. We paid for the tour of the local flour mill and bought some bread from the flour milled there at the Tuesday Market-delicious.

Top quality cottage in a superb location, the bird life is amazing and the weather exciting! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and hope to return, through when the days are longer we can appreciate the views properly! Thank you so much.

What a fantastic little place with a brilliant location. We've had some lovely, lovely walks and lots of cosy nights in with the fire. Nice touches to leave flowers and cake and wonderful décor in the property.


Elaine

We arrived at 3.20 to an amazing sight. 'Boathouse' is by far the best place that we have ever stayed! The welcome most warm, by is lovely lady 'owner' she could not have been more helpful. the Boathouse is immaculate from the instance we walked into the beautiful old Boathouse! It will always have that certain flair as it has been renovated beautifully, detail is in its every corner, well done 'Venita' you have certainly acquired the look! Been around village today, walked all the way around about 4 miles. Meal at the Ferry inn! Beautiful place with beautiful people.


Emma and Tom

We have thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in this lovely boathouse. we've had a good mix of walking, exploring and resting even managed to find some local wool (in Fishguard) and two weaving mills which kept me very happy! Looking forward to looking round the flour mill and market just before we head home.


Liz and Mark

Just a lovely place to spend a few days away! Friendly locals, nice pubs, beautiful walks. what more could you want? Will definitely return.


Vivienne and Gareth

We have had a wonderful time thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Beautiful setting over looking the estuary. The Boathouse was immaculate on entering and enjoying the welcome cake! Relaxing walks with the dog until by far the best place to eat 'The Ferry Inn' just at the top of the hill, excellent food. We shall return.


Phil and Shelia

We have been coming to the boathouse for about 8 years, and were over the moon to find how well the refurbishment had gone. What a brilliant job, can't wait to visit again.

Thank you for all the thought that you have put into our lovely holiday, the flowers, the cake and the milk. We have really enjoyed our stay here very much. Thanking you.


Roth Family

We have come from Northern Germany to explore this part of Wales for the first time. We had a lot of walks along the impressive coast, saw castles, villages, cities and lots of other sights but in the end the Boathouse with its beautiful furnishings and lots of lovely accessories made us really feel at home.A very warm 'Thank you' to our hosts. the long voyage of nearly 30 hours (by car and ferry) from our home was worth the experience and we hope to come back to the Boathouse in the next few years.


Kathy and Arthur

Our first visit to Wales. What a beautiful country! Thanks for the great base for exploring, milk and cake much appreciated. Poppit Sands is an excellent beach. Tuesday market has tasty fresh produce. The Marine Parade coastal walk in Fishguard has super views!


Lynne Taylor and Andrew Spencer

What a lovely find! We have been to Wales many times but never to this part and will definitely be returning. The 'Boathouse' is ideal so homely with everything we needed. the location is perfect, what a pleasure to sit outside each evening with a glass of wine. We visited the places previously mentioned so chose to mention some that were not. Newport is a lovely little place with a small antique shop with loads of old books and trinkets. St Davids is so lovely-the abbey and Cathedral make it picture perfect. Walking along parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast path the views are stunning-but particularly love Ceibwr Bay and Devils Cauldron (if you aren't afraid of heights and cliff edges) Whitesands also lovely, too many to mention!! Had a brilliant week.


Carol, John and Sammie

Our third visit and again everything perfect in The Boathouse and the weather. Can't wait to come back next year.


Keith and Christine Wilcox

We find it very hard to leave this wonderful location, which offered us everything we were in search of. Relaxing days, lots to do and see and wildlife in particular. So may great coastal paths have been walked, with views of dolphins, Peregrinne Falcons and Red Kites. A lovely cottage ' The Boathouse' where we have been very happy and comfortable, our thanks to Venita and Gareth for providing us with everything needed for a lovely holiday, plus the extras supplied.


David and Karen Roberts

We have had an extremely relaxing week here in the Boathouse. St Dogmaels is ideally placed to visit the local tourist sites. Everything you could want is supplied in the property, with 'extra' delights such as cake and milk as welcome additions. A really comfortable holiday home that we would readily book again.


Rob and Kim Harley

From the moment we arrived at the boathouse we felt so relaxed, the location is breathtaking. We have had an amazing week lots to see and do along the way, but you then look forward to spending an evening back here chilling outside with a glass of wine. This truly is 'That Place' everyone hopes to find so glad we came do not want to leave. Thank you


Frank and Betty

Beautiful location, lovely property - everything we needed. Saw lots of birds, scenery - we'll be back.


Richard and Linda

Like other visitors, we've been very impressed by the make over. Lucky though to sample two separate settings. we've been coming to the area for years yo act in the abbey and are increasingly grateful for comfortable private space for rest and relaxation. If only it we not such a long drive from our bases, we'd be forever dropping by.


Jay and Chris Richards

Idyllic! A haven of perfect peace next to the restful river Tefi. Love the location, the people and the laid back pace of the place. Long may it remain so definitely one to recommend!!


Mr and Mrs Parry

Great location and lovely cottages. Weather was kind and lots to see and do here. Warm welcome. Fabulous.


Mr and Mrs Gardiner

Our enjoyment here rises with the tides! A most enjoyable stay again.


The Flynn's

What a fabulous time we've had! The Boathouse is in an idyllic location. We've while away many hours just watching the boats and wildlife. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Many thanks


The Morfett Party

Being beside the river is perfect. I've loved watching the tides rise and fall. The Boathouse has everything you need and the area around is full of beauty and interest. Thank you.


Mr & Mrs Houghton

The Boathouse is warm, very cosy and relaxing with a wonderful view. It is picturesque and exactly as the brochure shows. Watching the various birds and their activities was both interesting and relaxing. Thank you for a wonderful break.
