New Quay

Victorian fishing and shipbuilding village

The Victorian fishing and shipbuilding village of New Quay situated half way between Cardigan and Aberystwyth is one of the most picturesque towns on the Ceredigion Heritage Coast. The village is built on the gentle slopes of the Neuadd and Penywig Hills, falling to a sheltered harbour and a golden sandy beach on one side of the quay and a stoney craggy beach on the other. There are five beautiful beaches within an eight mile radius of New Quay and many others in the near vicinity.

Whitewashed and stone faced houses arranged in terraces on these slopes present a charming appearance from the sea, commanding an extensive view of Cardigan Bay. New Quay is open to the warm south westerly breezes which blow throughout the year to make it an ideal summer and winter resort. Dylan Thomas lived here and it is very likely that the "cliff perched town at the far end of Wales" on which he based Llaregub in Under Milk Wood is New Quay.

New Quay offers many opportunities for relaxation, dining, sailing and indeed walking. There are many delightful attractions for walkers. The character of the coast is very diverse. The coastline to the north leads to the headland of Llanina with its secluded church, sheltered woodland and the sandy beach of Cei Bach. The coastline to the south with its rugged cliffs is only broken by narrow glens and secluded coves. Either way one can walk for many miles along the beach or cliff tops amidst spectacular scenery.

New Quay Boat Trips.
The Pleasure Boats Ermol V and Ermol VI sail daily from April to September, offering 20 minute, 1 hour and 2 hour trips down the coast of Cardigan Bay to Birds Rock and The Caves, Cwmtydu and Seals Bay; the 2 hour trip also takes in the romantic peninsula of Yn­­ Lochtyn. Marvel at the magnificent coastal scenery and wildlife along the heritage coast!

Why come to Mid Wales and the Ceredigion Coast?  You may well see seals and dolphins and some lucky visitors this year saw a blue shark just off the beach at New Quay.  At Nant y Arian near Aberystwyth the RSPB feed the Red Kites daily and the warden told us that in winter they can have as many as 250 each day.  It is truly an amazing sight and well worth the trip especially as you can combine it with watching the spectacular display by starlings over the sea in Aberystwyth in the late afternoon.

Nov 2015 Perfect house with excellent views. A family reunion with 4 generations, everyone loved Park Hall with lots to do inside and out, very well equipped with everything you need for a break away for all ages. The booking was simple and straightforward with fantastic communication with Carol and Roger. All the rooms were lovely and comfortable and the bedrooms had fantastic views. I can't recommend Park Hall enough.
