fforest quayside


informal 1 day venue located on the riverside in the centre of Cardigan town and minutes away from the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion coastline.

A courtyard bordered by heritage maritime buildings steeped in history, this venue is perfect for a relaxed informal summer wedding under the giant hat tipi, guests sitting on the riverside terrace, watching the river flow past Cardigan castle towards the sea.
Or a cosy, rustic, barn wedding in the Coalyard with music, dancing and atmospheric lighting, guests spilling out into the courtyard to chat around the firebowls or grab a drink from the Smwglin pub, decorated with vintage maritime pieces.



A double giant hat tipi in the courtyard can accommodate 200, while the adjoining Coalyard barn can host 400 for a party. The Canoe Club is a small intimate space accessed from an open staircase in the courtyard.


You can throw a stone at it. Just across the river in a beautiful old warehouse, looking over the Quayside venue and Cardigan Castle, we have 5 self-catering lofts including a romantic studio apartment, sleeping a total of 17 guests.
For details of our Granary Lofts please click here.


For eating the Giant Hat tipis will accommodate up to 120 people and our Coalyard barn up to 150.


Civil ceremonies can be held at the Guildhall just a 5 minute walk up Cardigan High Street.
