The joy of the jewel of Cardigan Bay
Wide Horizons Holiday Park is in such a wonderful spot. On your doorstop is the historic town of Aberearon. The town retains its Georgian charm with elegant, brightly painted town houses and atmospheric shops. You must try some of the traditional food and have a drink in one of the pleasant pubs. It is still a focal point for the rural communities in mid-Cardiganshire. The town also has an excellent Sea Aquarium and Craft Centre. Aberearon has a long history as a fishing port and visitors from all over the world come and experience for themselves the ‘Jewel of Cardigan Bay’, taking with them a little bit of it in their hearts as they leave.
Many believe that the quaint fishing village of New Quay is the ‘cliff-perched town at the far end of Wales’ immortalised by Dylan Thomas in his classic ‘Under Milk Wood’. Dylan Thomas lived in New Quay in 1944 in a little house called ‘Majoda’ atop the cliffs opposite the town.
