Aberaeron to Llanerchaeron Walk

3 miles (5 km)

A lovely walk from the Ceredigion town of Aberaeron to the Grade I listed mansion of Llanerchaeron.
The walk starts in the coastal town of Aberaeron, next to the pier. You then pass along the harbour before picking up a trail along the River Aeron. The trail branches off the river before passing through woodland and arriving at Llanerchaeron.
There's some nice trails to follow around the grounds of the attractive Georgian villa. Features include a working farm, an ornamentallake and walled gardens.
On the farm you can see a variety of animals including Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep, rare Welsh pigs, chickens, geese and doves.
The walled gardens date from the 18th century and feature kitchen gardens, 200 year old fruit trees, beautiful herbaceous borders and a herb garden.
In the woodland areas you can see wild daffodils, wood anemone and bluebells depending on the time of year. Also look out for birdlife including nesting herons, goldcrests, redstarts and nuthatches.
After exploring the estate you can return to Aberaeron on the same path.
The Ceredigion Coast Path passes through Aberaeron. You could follow the waymarked trail north east to Llansantffraid to extend your walking in the area.
