Advice on Cottage Holidays in Lampeter
The town of Lampeter can be found in south west Wales in the county of Ceredigion and has a wonderful feel to it due to the vast number of individually owned shops that line the streets as opposed to chain stores. It is also home to a theatre and a museum and is surrounded by forests and lakes. These woodlands include Wern Wood, Lodge Wood and Pond Wood, and all make excellent places to walk, hike, cycle or enjoy a picnic in. If you are going on a pet friendly self-catering holiday then these many woods are excellent for taking your dog in, so that you can both explore your new surroundings and lap up the beautiful atmosphere of this gorgeous Welsh town.
