A must for nature lovers, the Youth Hostel is set in five acres of stunning grounds, there is plenty of room to get lost exploring during your stay. For UK coastal breaks, Poppit Sands is a number one destination.

Manager recommends

  • Mwnt is a favourite beach in the area. Spend a pleasant evening sat on top of the hill watching the sunset over Cardigan Island. Pods of dolphins regularly visit the Mwnt area, so if you're lucky you might spot these awesome animals on your family activity break.
