Accessible things to do

Up for the idea of accessible glamping but unsure on what there is to do around here?  Read on for some ideas of accessible places to visit. In some cases the terrain is rougher than others so please get in touch if you need to know more about each place.

National Botanic Gardens (45 mins South)
Really beautiful place with a new restored parkland, butterfly house, great dome and bird of prey centre.  Wheelchairs are available at the NBG and they have a 'bus' service for people who need a bit of help with longer distances.  The NBG now have a Changing Places toilet installed as well as other accessible toilets. They only allows dogs on some days, so check the website.

Llanerchaeron National Trust (15 mins West)
Lovely small house and farm and parkland with great walled gardens.  House is accessible downstairs only. Just along from here is a 3 mile cycle path that leads into Aberaeron, it is an old railway line and great for biking and traffic free.

Aberaeron (18 mins West) lovely little harbour town which is pretty accessible. Great for crabbing and ice cream. We have crabbing nets you can borrow, the beaches are rock not sand but great for exploring and there is a flat tarmac path that runs along beside the North beach.

Dyfi Osprey Project (1 hour North)
We haven't yet been but they have put in a changing places toilet and new visitors centre which is supposed to be fantastic, lots of level boardwalks, no dogs except assistance dogs.

Aberystwyth & The Cliff Railway (45 mins North)
Lovely promenade which is all level access (providing the sea is behaving and hasn't covered in it gravel).  There is a vehicular railway which is wheelchair accessible. We haven't been since the wheelchair access has been put in so can not truly vouch for it.  Aberystwyth has 2 changing places toilets in the Welsh Government and NRW offices. You can hire beach wheelchairs from the kiosk by the beach.  There is no time limit on hire but you can not book, it's first come first served.  Borth beach, about 10 mins north of Aberystwyth also has beach wheelchairs. Again you turn up at the kiosk and ask.

Rheidol Railway (45 mins North - departs from Aberystwyth)
A narrow gauge heritage railway. That travels through some breath-taking countryside to Devil's Bridge. The train ride takes about at hour. The train is accessible but please note the accessible carriage is an open carriage. There is a roof, but there is no glass in the 'windows' so check the weather or wrap up warm! Access statement here.

Cors Caron (30 mins North) a raised walkway around a wetland, and links to a cycle path. It looks like it is closed but you just need to go a bit further on to go in at the other end.

Dinefwr National Trust (35 mins East), lovely parkland and estate with deer and white cattle with a boardwalk suitable for wheelchairs and a lift in the house....yes a lift in a stately home!!

Aberporth (35 mins south) an accessible part of the Wales coast path, about 1 mile of tarmac path with beautiful views across the sea. There are 2 beaches at Aberporth and the dog free beach has a ramped walk way down to the beach. It can be a bit steep in places but guests with electric wheelchairs have made it down to the beach. There is disabled parking and an accessible loo.

Cenarth falls (30 mins South) there is a lovely set of low level falls (where the salmon leap in the autumn). They have just opened a board walk along side, about 900m, again we haven't visited since in opened.

Welsh Wildlife Centre (30 mins South) - Another off road cycle path through a nature reserve, really lovely and leads into cardigan town which is nice for a mooch around.

Poppit Sands (50 mins South) a lovely beach not far from Cardigan. Car parking right next to the beach, they have accessible toilets, beach wheelchairs you can borrow (you have to book online) and will soon be extending their boardwalk.
