Picturesque Aberaeron

A spectacular 25 mile drive north of Valley View Cottages brings you to the historic seaside town of Aberaeron.

The Georgian town is clustered around a harbour created by the River Aeron flowing into the sea. This port is home to a small fishing fleet and once had a thriving boat-building industry.

The current town was built around 1805 and boasts many fine Georgian houses painted in an array of pretty colours.

This is a great place to wander around the many independent and unusual shops. When you need a rest there is a great choice of places to eat and drink or maybe just sit by the harbour with a local honey flavoured ice cream from The Hive

.

Either side of the harbour is a quiet pebble and sand beach if you want to simply sit and stare out to sea or swim in the crystal clear waters.
