There is plenty to see and do within the locality in every weather and season.

Primrose Cottage is 4 miles from the beach and sand dunes of Borth and Ynslas. The huge expanse of sand is great for sunbathing, ball games, kite-flying and watersports.

There are attractive walks nearby including the delightful Artists Valley and RSBP Ynys-hir Nature Reserve. For the adventurous, the wild natural beauty of the nearby Plynlimon range, as well as Cader Idris in nearby Snowdonia are highly recommended.

Aberystwyth (9 miles) has lots of interesting independent shops and an attractive sea front promenade with ruined castle at one end and Victorian electric cliff railway up Constitution Hill, with stunning views, at the other.

The Centre for Alternative Technology at Machyllneth is an interesting eco-centre over 7 acres, with water-balanced cliff railway, and loads of ideas for greener living.

The Hafod Estate, Llanacheron Estate (National Trust), Ponterwyd red kite centre, Devils Bridge waterfalls, as well as the many steam railways also make enjoyable days out.
