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, rabbits, 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 every day is 2015 from the 23rd March until the 31st October.

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

Perfect camp site and splendid visitor centre, and all so clean and spotless. The Welsh call "Welcome" as "CROESO" and this CROESO excelled itself here.

I was stimulated to write this review, because someone called Richard S. of Cardigan slagged it off on such spurious grounds that I doubt he's ever been there. It is a joyful experience for youngsters, as all the other reviews state, but may I just respond to the badly-written criticism by Richard S. He criticised the muffins in the cafe,... More

We took the dog whilst on holiday, no problem, and the gent behind the counter couldn't have been more accommodating. We had a coffee from the cafe to start, which was of a decent quality, and then off to explore! Really fun selection of animals, following the track takes you down to the cliffs and a chance to view the... More

My wife and I took our 15 month old son to see the animals. It was great, nice selection of animals (horses, goats, donkeys, an emu and pigs) all of which you can feed. The view are great and if you're lucky you can see seals and dolphins. The cafe is also good with a varied menu and indoor activities... More

We weren't intending on visiting here, we were walking the coastal path to Poppit Sands and stumbled across it. Admission is reasonable at £3.90 for adults and £2.80 for kids (70p for animal feed). This is essentially fields with farm animals in en route to the coastal path to the seal colony below. The walk was bracing due to the... More

I took my children aged 4 and 6. On arrival we were asked if we wanted to buy some animal food - which we did. There are hardly any animals there so we were instantly disappointed, but when the goats sniffed out that we had food, they bounded towards us. My son - wary - asked "Mummy will it jump... More

This is a lovely little place. First of you can walk round and feed a load of farm animals (goats, sheep, ponies, cows, alpacas) 'Stormin Norman' one of the goats jumps out of his pen and walks round looking for extra food haha! Then you can take a little cliff edge walk and some of the views are amazing! If... More
