About 2 miles away from Nineoaks’ is the picturesque fishing village of New Quay, West Wales with stunning sweeping sandy bays, crystal clear waters, and a busy little harbour. From the Harbour Break Water Dolphins and Seals can seen nearly every day. The best times to see them are on the change of the tide, when it changes from high-to-low water or low-to-high water. Close by, in 2005, Hump Backed whales and a large pod of Dolphins estimated at 1000 strong were seen within 100 yards of the shore! Here you can check on activities around and about New Quay.

North Ceredigion

A few miles north of Aberystwyth you will find King Arthurs Labyrinth with a mystical tour through tunnels and caves.

Corris Mine Explorers Step back in time with Corris Mine Explorers in Mid Wales as you explore the workings of an old Welsh Slate Mine. Take a walk through time through the vast underground caverns of the disused mines and way back to 1836 when the mines were first worked. See the machinery and miners’ tools, their candles and even a packet of cigarettes. It feels as if the miners have just gone, with lots of things they left behind and still in place.
