Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park is stunningly located on a scenic headland, overlooking the nature reserve of Cardigan Island, which is just 200 yards off-shore, so it can be clearly viewed from the park. Cardigan Island is home to thousands of nesting sea-birds, so access has to be restricted. A colony of Atlantic grey seals breed in the many caves below the farm park cliffs and can be seen virtually every day. Cardigan Bay's bottlenose dolphins are frequent visitors to the waters surrounding the park, particularly during calm weather, when they swim closer to the shore. They can be viewed clearly from the park.

There are a variety of friendly farm animals for visitors to view and feed, including pigs, sheep, goats, rare breed cattle, ponies, chickens, and Dilwyn the donkey. There is also Llinos the Llama and Bruce the Emu from far-off lands.

The Visitor Centre features a lovely cafe serving meals and drinks, with a focus on Welsh-sourced ingredients, which can be enjoyed either indoors or on the large patio to make the most of the glorious scenery. There is an out-door adventure playground and sand-pit for children to enjoy as well as some indoor games, and a well-stocked gift shop.

Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park is open daily from 1st April 2017 until the 4th November 2017.

We came on a windy and down cast day, the threat of rain made it difficult to decide whether to brave the walk around the farm with our part of 8 adults and 5 toddlers but we are glad we did. The walk around the farm has the most stunning coastal views and a great array of animals in beautiful... More

Fantastic farm, with rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, emu, cows, pigs, horses and all within a beautiful coastal path walk, with fantastic views of the sea and cliffs. Got to see jelly fish, sea birds and many sightings of grey seals, who kept looking at us from the sea! All animals friendly and adored the horses. You get to feed... More

A cheap family day out although the animals are a little limited but the main reason to visit is the access to the sea containing seals and dolphins visible from the cliff tops.

What a beautiful place. Spotlessly clean, very warm and informative welcome. The coastal farm is beautifully kept well fenced and all the animals look happy and well cared for with lovely large enclosures. Large bags of feed available to buy for 70p to feed the animals on your way around and hand wash station on walk. Amazing views and walk... More

A wonderful walk along the cardigan bay. And nice to see farm animals along the way. A huge playing a area for children outside, a spacious eating area and shop. I managed to see some seals the last time I came too, but not seen any dolphins as yet. A wonderful walk in the summer
