Cwmtydu – Once a smuggler’s paradise

The secluded Cove at Cwmtydu, once a smugglers' paradise, breaks the coastline to the south west of New Quay. Part of the National Trust and Cardiganshire Heritage Coast, grassy slopes lead down to the sea and village with its shingled beach. Visiting Cwmtydu one can easily imagine what it was like to live in days gone by when smugglers dominated the Welsh coastline.

It is said that the building materials for Park Hall were landed at the Cove when it was built in 1912 to avoid the windy lanes of the time

The well used Ceredigion Coastal Path follows the cliff tops all the way to New Quay or Llangranog and affords some outstanding views of Cardigan Bay.

At low tide why not take a look at some of the caves which over the years have played host to many of the smugglers which frequently used the secluded bay, safe from prying eyes.

In the last century, the little sailing ships landed their cargoes of culm and limestone and the kiln where they burned the lime is preserved by the National Trust and is easily reached from the car park.

In World War 1, a German submarine commander took his submarine into the cove to surface, charging his batteries and fetching fresh water from the stream for his men. He knew the cove from a peacetime visit.

Whatever you do at Cwmtydu you are sure to want to return again and again to take in its natural beauty.

2019

Bookings for next year are coming through steadily.  So if you are planning a family gathering or some other event and are thinking of specific dates do contact us soon. 

Why come to Mid Wales and the Ceredigion Coast?  You may well see seals and dolphins and some lucky visitors this year saw a blue shark just off the beach at New Quay.  At Nant y Arian near Aberystwyth the RSPB feed the Red Kites daily and the warden told us that in winter they can have as many as 250 each day.  It is truly an amazing sight and well worth the trip especially as you can combine it with watching the spectacular display by starlings over the sea in Aberystwyth in the late afternoon.

Nov 2015 Perfect house with excellent views. A family reunion with 4 generations, everyone loved Park Hall with lots to do inside and out, very well equipped with everything you need for a break away for all ages. The booking was simple and straightforward with fantastic communication with Carol and Roger. All the rooms were lovely and comfortable and the bedrooms had fantastic views. I can't recommend Park Hall enough.
