“Cardigan is a good day out, the town features a mix of high street brands and independent shops to browse or stock up on essentials or a beach picnic. Lunch is recommended at the Pizza Tipi come rain or shine, with its wood fired ovens, selection of local brewed beers and undercover firepit area. Dogs are welcome too. Followed on by an afternoon at one of the many local beaches which hardly ever get crowded.”
