Situated in a truly idyllic location at the northern end of what was the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, Hafan enjoys a privileged position overlooking Poppit Sands, from the decking outside you will enjoy panoramic views of the bay to Cardigan Island and also the lower reaches of the Teifi Estuary. The beach at Poppit is unspoilt, undeveloped, with just a handful of chalets, café, car park and the Cardigan RNLI Station set in the sand dunes. Hafan is just 1 mile from the quaint village of St Dogmaels and 3 miles from the historic market town of Cardigan.

There are several good pubs/ restaurants nearby, the Teifi Waterside (previously the Webley) is just a short walk away. There is golf at Gwbert and Newport Pembs and other activities such as horse riding, carting, fishing, boating and theme parks. Whether you just want to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful scenery or need a base whilst walking the Welsh Coast Path, Hafan is the place for you.


For food close by there is the recently refurbished Webley Hotel, now The Teifi Waterside Hotel or in nearby St Dogmaels you could try the Ferry Inn.

With Hafan situated 100yds from the beach there is plenty of opportunity for various watersports and fishing alike.

Gwbert or Newport are the closest courses for a round of golf.  If you fancy a spot of horse riding there is Crosswell's, Est. 25+ yrs and licensed riding centre.

For a step back in time you could try Castell Henllys, a unique Iron Age hill fort.

For dolphin, seal and sea bird watching boat trips try Bay to remember.

Or, if you're after a wild theme park experience, Oakwood is for you, if you have younger children and you think that's too much you could try a more relaxed visit to Folly Farm.
