There are plenty of things to do and many fantastic places to visit, and all within a short drive of Nineoaks, here are some of them:-

The general location of Ceredigion within South West WalesCeredigion is located on the South West Coast of Wales and is almost unknown as a holiday destination and is well worth a visit - you won't be disappointed! With crystal clear waters, beautiful bays, fabulous scenery and views with lots to see and do.

About 2 miles away from Nineoaks' is 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.

A little further north is the University Town of Aberystwyth with castle, cliffs, huge sandy bays and plenty of shops. Travelling time from the fishery about 25 minutes
Also 25 minutes travelling south and definitely worth a visit is the beautiful town of Cardigan with lovely quaint shops and a real sense of history.

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 still in place.
