With St Dwynwen’s day ahead and then Valentine’s day close behind, we’ve been feeling the love in the air. Here are our top five quirky and romantic things to do together in Ceredigion;
1. Search for Dolphins
Why not share the spectacular moment of spotting the UK’s biggest pod of Bottlenose dolphins? Better yet, combine that with an exploration of the stunning coastline courtesy of ‘A Bay to Remember’ – you can discover hidden birds and coves at the same time as spotting dolphins, seals and birds. Trips range from just an hour to a whole half-day trip.
2. The food of Love
Indulge your senses together with a chocolate making class at Chocolate Fusion. In the charming country village of Glynarthen, you can enjoy a taste of artisan chocolate with husband and wife Nick and Kitty and take home some sumptuous handmade chocolates at the end of the session.
3. The Romance of Art
Stroll through the exquisite gardens at Sculpture Heaven, taking in the beautiful wildlife, stunning artwork and some wonderful views over the River Ceri Valley. The Angel House sits in the centre of the pond and perfect for sneaking off together as you soak up the beauty.
4. Feed the Birds
Enjoy a unique experience together and head to Bwlch Nant yr Arian where you can join in at feeding time when over 150 kites come during the winter months – you might even spot the rare ‘white kite’. Watch the birds swoop in from the picturesque lakeside along the Barcud Trail.
5. The Romance of Words
The National Library of Wales is one of the great libraries of the world and is home to the works of some of the most renowned poets and writers of Britain. Snuggle up together in one of the reading rooms and recite the poetry of the old romantics, from Shakespeare to the Welsh Bard Iolo Morganwg.
And finally the quirkiest place to stay… For a truly romantic trip, spend the rest of your time curled up together in a romantic bolthole for two overlooking the ocean. Under The Thatch specialize in cosy, traditional Welsh properties with a unique twist!
