4. Sample some seaweed…
Seaweed is a healthy food. Welsh laver bread is highly nutritious because of its high proportions of protein, iron, and especially iodine. It also contains high levels of vitamins B2, A, D and C.
With seaweed cheese, gin and lava bread a local delicacy in Ceredigion visitors tend to either love it or hate it! We’d recommend getting in some fresh fish and having a seaside feast. A trip to Da Mhile Distillery and Caws Teifi HQ is always a fun day out. A nice place to stay is self-catering cottage Heddfan.
