'Five Oaks' sits within six acres of woodland, mature gardens and meadow surrounded by
countryside. Yet, despite this, it is also a stone's throw away from the coast and walking distance from two of Ceredigion's most beautiful beaches - Traethgwyn (which means 'White Beach' in Welsh) and Cei Bach ('Little Quay').
New Quay is only a few minutes away by car and takes around 25 minutes to walk. If the tide is out then you can walk from 'Five Oaks', through our woods and down to Llanina bridge, cross the road to join the Welsh coastal path, down to the beach and along Traethgwyn all the way to the town.
Walking in the other direction, the gorgeous Georgian town of Aberaeron, can be reached in around an hour and a half - following the coastal path and affording some unforgettable views. If you haven't the energy to walk back, the local bus drops you back off in nearby Gilfachreda.
The chance to actually watch bottlenose dolpins in the wild is a major attraction to the area and they can be seen most days during the summer, by taking one of the organised boat trips from New Quay or, if you are lucky, whilst you are stood in the town, eating an ice cream and gazing out to sea. Porpoise and seals can also be seen, again, sometimes even from the beach.
By car there is easy access to the larger towns of Cardigan (25 minutes) and Aberystwyth (35 minutes), with their Castles, Museums, Cinemas and miriad other attractions.
The Welsh Coast Path, which skirts the edge of our grounds, covers the entire coast of Wales - full details can be found here
