Travel: West Wales

by Jane Hayward on Thursday, 2 February 2012

Check in Step behind the distinctive blue facade on Aberaeron's Victorian harbour to discover bedrooms that mix vibrant Welsh blankets with Frette linens. Top for a tryst: the Aeron Queen warehouse suite with sea-view Juliet balcony.

Easy pleasures Sip morning coffees while watching fishing boats from a sheltered harbour seat. Take a dolphin-spotting trip out into Cardigan Bay.

Trips for two Free bike hire comes with your room – it's a cinch of a ride to the National Trust's Llanerchaeron villa. Or drive to idyllic beaches such as Penbryn's dunes, which are hidden by woodland.

Love bites The Harbourmaster's new open kitchen and smart crowd mean you don't need to stray. Rich local dishes such as Cardigan Bay crab cakes with tamarind ketchup, and Welsh beef with Béarnaise, are total treats.

What it costs Doubles overlooking the harbour from £110 B&B per room. Call 01545-570755 or visit
