Winter News

It’s so hard to choose our favourite time of year in FABerystwyth. Each season brings with it something special. Now the clocks have turned back, and the mornings are a little chillier, it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a cosy stay in one of our luxurious seafront holiday apartments.

Our latest newsletter shares with you just a few of the fabulous things we’re looking forward to this season: 5 Reasons to Stay with Awel Môr this Winter.

Craft Fair and Shows

Our ‘National Flagship for the Arts’ is pulling out all the stops this Winter. Something different is happening each week; November sees Sir Ranulph Fiennes drop in as part of his Living Dangerously UK Tour.
Bjorn Again get the party started in December; before Shane Williams shares some rugby secrets in January.

All this plus plenty of local and Welsh language talent and, of course, this years’ Panto – Peter Pan.

For a perfect way to spend an afternoon, why not visit the Art Centre’s Christmas Craft Fair? More than 80 craft suppliers from all over Ceredigion and Wales showcase their artisan produce, offering unique gifts perfect for your loved ones (and maybe a treat or two for yourself!)

Murmurations at the Pier

50,000 starlings come to visit Aberystwyth each year, and people come from all over the country to witness one of their world-famous murmurations.

We’ll let you in on a secret – Awel Môr’s seafront accommodation is the perfect place to watch their mesmerizing twists and tumbles against the setting sun – right from the warmth of your living room.

They arrive at the end of October and leave around March and you can see (and hear them) each evening under the Royal Pier!

Steam Train Adventure

Aberystwyth’s Victorian narrow-gauge railway is a delight to visit any time of year, but as the leaves change colour and begin to fall, a whole new landscape appears.

Learn about the legends as the steam train chugs its way through the Cambrian Mountains to Devil’s Bridge – said to be the last place the Devil visited in Wales.

Take a walk to the waterfalls and bridges celebrated by William Wordsworth.

The little station shops are worth a visit alone – they specialise in railway books; railway-inspired garden gifts; train sets plus gifts and crafts from all over Wales.

December 7th – January 3rd 2020

Following a phenomenal inaugural year, the Winter Wonderland and Ice Rink return to Aberystwyth castle again for 2019.

There will be a small funfair and a traditional German market with an extra local food and gift fair each weekend. All in and around Aberystwyth’s landmark medieval castle ruins.

Advancing Aberystwyth – who run the event, have plenty of festive fun arranged for this season, including drive-in cinema evenings and a traditional lantern parade before the switching on of our Christmas lights in the town centre.

The Perfect Location 

New for Winter 2019 – Our luxury accommodation properties 1 & 3 now have subtle secondary glazing, ensuring our properties are warmer and cosier than ever, with extra soundproofing to ensure a restful night’s sleep!

This is just a handful of events you can look forward to when you book a stay at Awel Môr this winter.

Imagine your stay.

A winter walk along the seafront will bring colour to your cheeks. A hot cup of tea with some treats from your complimentary hamper will warm your soul. It’s time to settle into one of our comfy easy chairs to watch one of our stunning winter sunsets from the window.

Relax in one of our beautiful holiday apartments – your home away from home.

We can’t wait to welcome you.
