New Quay - or 'Cei Newydd', with its picturesque harbour and houses has a good selection of pubs and restaurants and clings to the sides of the hills rising above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay on the coast of West Wales. New Quay’s stone pier has been standing for almost 200 years and is one of the best places to see the Bottlenose Dolphins for which Cardigan Bay is famous.
The sheltered harbour and safe beaches are the focus of activity in the summer when New Quay becomes a bustling and vibrant holiday resort where boat trips, sailing, fishing, water sports and relaxation, are among the main attractions. The local area has much to offer with the safe and sandy beaches of Llangrannog, Tresaith, Penbryn and Mwnt just a short drive away.
Coastal Path: This house is just a short walk to the Coastal Footpath.
