We have enjoyed every day of our stay in this beautiful cottage. What a find, exactly what we wanted. Will & Janet were so friendly and very welcoming. We enjoyed many local attractions such as Llanerchaeron, Aberaeron and the craft centre but were well placed for visits to New Quay, Cardigan and beyond. Plenty of lovely places to eat out but it was so nice to come back to the peace and quiet of this beautiful place. We are already planning our return visit. Thank you Will & Janet, we will find it difficult to read.

What a gorgeous cottage & beautiful location. Richard, Will & Janet made us very welcome and gave us all the information we needed about the cottage, area, where to eat etc. The cottage had everything we needed and we loved the wood burner at night, also used the washing machine and outdoor line which was great as the weather was so good. We had good meals at the Harbourmaster, Cellar and The Hive. Enjoyed New Quay (saw dolphins on boat trip) Laugharne, Poppit Sands, Tresaith & Penbryn. We would love to come back, thank you!

We have enjoyed an excellent few days in this lovely peaceful place. The coastal walks are magnificent, Aberaeron delightful & Llanechaeron walled garden, magical. Very good food at The Harbourmaster. Richard made us very welcome and Will & Janet looked after us very well. It has been very special to stay in a cottage so recently and beautifully fitted out.

About the Area

This 'Jewel of the Ceredigion Coast' with its Georgian houses is a delight - boutique shops, art galleries, cafes/tea rooms, pubs, a great fish and chip restaurant take-away as well as The Hive, famous for its award-winning honey ice cream and lovely home-made produce. The renowned Harbourmaster Hotel is just across the harbour and is a delightful stroll at lunchtime or early evening. A fabulous restaurant renowned for fantastic fare and superb local beers.

Once a thriving and prosperous fishing port with a shipbuilding industry - a walk on the historic Town Trail gives a fascinating glimpse into this past, including the origins of the famous Aberaeron Shovel.

There is a fantastic regular calendar of events during the year to enjoy including Cardigan Bay Sea Food Festival, Yachting Regatta, a Beer & Cider Festival, Tug of War, Annual Carnival and Mackerel Festival.

Ceredigion Coast Path

The Ceredigion Coast Path is virtually on your doorstep - from Cardigan in the South to Yns-las in the North the path runs along the coast past Aberaeron and takes in part of the Marine Heritage Coast - secluded sandy coves, endless golden beaches, undulating clifftop walking where the only sound is the cry of the seabirds and there are charming fishing villages - spot bottlenose dolphins in the bay along the way!

Llanerchaeron (NT)

A cycle ride or walk along the old railway track from Aberaeron takes you to this 18th century Welsh gentry estate.

The mansion (designed by John Nash) gardens and cafe are set amidst rolling parkland. There is a service courtyard with dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house and walled kitchen gardens (with produce for sale in season). It is also a working organic farm with Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.

Rheidol Railway

From the coast at Aberystwyth, watch the scenery passing by your window. See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields, ancient woodland and rugged mountain scenery as the line twists and turns, clinging to the hillside to reach Devil's Bridge - home of the famous Mynach Falls and Devil's Punchbowl.

Look out for birds of prey such as red kites and buzzards soaring high above the valley floor and listen to the sound of the narrow gauge steam engine working hard on the climb into the hills.

Opened in 1902, the railway is a masterpiece of engineering and has been delighting passengers young and old for generations. Although the line no longer carries lead ore from the mines it has been carrying holidaymakers to the beauty spot of Devil's Bridge for over a hundred years!

Cei Bach

This pretty sheltered sandy beach is good for bathing and has beautiful scenic views - the Coastal Path from Aberaeron to Cei Bach passes over a waterfall as it wends its way along the cliff tops.

New Quay

This is a bustling seaside town with picturesque houses, pubs and restaurants clinging to the sides of the hills as they rise above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay above the sandy beaches - great for relaxing, sailing, fishing and water sports.

From New Quay's pier, you can see the famous Cardigan Bay dolphins on most days in the summer or take a fishing trip or coastal cruise to truly experience fantastic coastal scenery from a different aspect and perhaps have close encounters with the dolphins, seals, porpoises and sometimes whales!

Cwmtydu Beach

This is a tranquil, secluded cove at the end of the Dewi valley. Once the haunt of smugglers, it is now a popular destination for walkers, nature lovers and holidaymakers with caves to explore at low tide and spectacular cliff top views from the Ceredigion Coast Path as it passes through.


This pretty little-sheltered cove is popular with families and has great rock pools with the famous Carreg Bica rock (Devils Tooth) divides its 2 sandy beaches at low tide.

Enjoy a drink or food at the Ship Inn overlooking the beach - fabulous sunsets too!


This is the charming county town with its high street lined with Georgian shop fronts - call into The Custom House Gallery, visit the indoor market, sample some of the eating places and perhaps see a film or show at Theatr Mwldan which has a constantly changing programme of events.

Cardigan Castle

Recently refurbished, the castle is more of a Georgian mansion within 11th century fortified walls overlooking the Teifi river. Dine in the 1176 restaurant and enjoy special events.

Welsh Wildlife Centre & Teifi Marsh

Visit this award-winning venue with indoor and outdoor attractions and Glasshouse Cafe. Children will love the play area, wildlife films and interpretation centre. Outside are 4 nature trails with bird hides, willow sculptures, picnic areas and canoes for hire.


Less than 30 minutes drive away is the vibrant coastal and university town of Aberystwyth with its elegant promenade, interesting independent shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, arts centre, cliff railway and National Library of Wales. Recommended eaterie, The Hafod, Devil's Bridge,
