Scenic Walking Trails near The Falcondale
Our countryside location really is a walker’s paradise, with a large variety of Mid Wales hiking trails available. Whether you like to amble down a coastal path, stroll along the riverside, hike a mountain or take part in a rambler walking holiday, there is an option for everyone – all just a stone’s throw away from The Falcondale Hotel.
Below, we will look at some of the best walks in Wales for inspiration. Or, if you fancy staying a little bit closer to the hotel, we have 14 acres of land and gardens for you to explore at your leisure, as well as lots of local attractions for things to do in Mid Wales.
The Riverside Walk is one of our local favourites, and you can use the hotel as your starting point. It’s a 3-mile loop walk that does a fantastic job of showcasing the gorgeous Welsh countryside. But, beware, it can get a little muddy, so remember to bring your wellies!
The footpath will guide you through luscious fields, passing through kissing gates and hopping over stiles as you follow the River Teifi before eventually reaching the Creuddyn stream.

The Wales Coastal Path
In Ceredigion, we have access to 60 miles of the Wales Coastal Path – our top tip is to take the route between Aberaeron and New Quay. If you are a nature lover, you won’t want to miss this one! There is a chance that you will spot dolphins and seals that reside on the coast; and if you look up, you can enjoy the array of seabirds sailing through the skies.
As you explore this 6.5-mile route, you will walk the same footsteps as Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, who often frequented these paths when he lived in the area. You will also spot the statue of Llanina, who represents the halfway point of the Wales Coastal Path.
