We have some of Wales’s most famous famous attractions within this book, but we also have some of the countries biggest hidden gems. Take the coastal farm park here in Cardigan for instance. There is a wide variety of your usual every day run of the mill farm animals, but then and this is what took me completely by surprise, is the huge amount of animals that you wouldn’t usually associate with a farm park, like grey seals and bottlenose dolphins, making this coastal farm park one of its kind. I absolutely loved my visit here and the views to the island are just truly spectacular. Another thing worth mentioning, is the camping and caravanning park which is situated adjacent to the coastal farm park. With excellent onsite facilities, staying here means you get to wake up and witness one of Wales’s best coastal views, whilst sat having your breakfast.
Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park
Attraction in Ceredigion
Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park is located in the southern part of Cardigan Bay on a picturesque headland overlooking the Teifi estuary, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and of course the nature reserve of Cardigan Island which is home to an array of bird life and just 200 metres offshore. Part of Clyn-Yr-Ynys Farm, the Farm Park was set up in 1993 and it is very much a family run business.
There are a variety of friendly farm animals to see including pigs, sheep, goats, rare breed cattle, ponies, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and Dilwyn the donkey. There is also Llinos the llama and Bruce the emu from far-off lands. A small colony of Atlantic grey seals breed in the many caves located within the cliffs of the Farm Park, and can be seen virtually every day the park is open. Dolphins and porpoises are also frequently seen from the cliffs; they are easier to spot on calm sunny days, especially at high tide.
So say hello to our various farm animals; enjoy our fenced clifftop walk to the headland from where you can watch the seals or spot dolphins; browse in our gift shop, with a selection of toys as well as local and Welsh crafts; children will enjoy our indoor and outdoor play areas; have a bite to eat in our cafe and enjoy the scenery; or stay a little longer at our campsite.
We hope you enjoy your visit!
