There are also opportunities for angling, horse riding, golf and water-sports.

The Wales Way:

The Wales Way is a series of three touring routes: The North Wales Way, The Coastal Way & The Cambrian Way, which can be combined to make a Grand Tour of Wales.

Tanyresgair Cottages is situated between The Coastal Way and The Cambrian Way and would be an ideal stop-over for anyone planning a touring holiday based around the Wales Way. Especially if you only have time to do half the country - for either the northern half or the southern half, we are the halfway stop on your tour.

Further afield:

Its quite possible to take a day-trip to North Wales, Pembrokeshire or South Wales. So for instance you could visit Mt. Snowden, Betwys-y-Coed, Barmouth, Portmeirion, St. Davids, Fishguard, Carmarthen, Brecon Beacons, Builth Wells or the National Botanic Gardens of Wales.
