About Gwelfor

Welcome to Gwelfor, a stylish coastal house that has been recently lovingly transformed, offering wonderful sea views, 3 beautiful bedrooms and 2 contemporary bathrooms.

  • Located directly opposite the beach, this coastal house sits in an ideal position overlooking the blue waters of Cardigan Bay.

  • Set over 3 floors, Gwelfor cleverly combines a chic coastal theme with a cool contemporary twist. It is a truly wonderful home from home and the thoughtful owners have considered everything in creating this relaxed and comfortable holiday abode.

  • Step through the front door to a generous hallway, kick off your shoes and wander through into the spacious lounge. This beautiful room is filled with sunlight by day, and offers a relaxing ambience with comfortable sofas and wood-burning stove by night.

  • A circular driftwood dining table will play host to your holiday meals and the well-equipped kitchen awaits with everything you could need to create a Welsh feast after a day on the coast.

  • Set on the first floor there are two well-appointed bedrooms and a family bathroom - the family bedroom with double and twin is to the rear of the property and the first floor kingsized bedroom is a place to relax in bed in the morning and watch the ever-changing seascape. It doesn't get much better than this.

  • Upstairs on the second floor is the master ensuite bedroom - a perfect place to escape from it all and enjoy your own space and comfort. It is an amazing room to wake up in the morning with panoramic views over Cardigan Bay headland and New Quay. The bedrooms are all beautifully appointed and exude quality with natural fibres in all of the mattresses, duvets, pillows and bedding .

  • The sunsets here are truly stunning - soak up the sun from the beach or relax in the rear courtyard garden and enjoy an evening drink.

  • Whether you are a smaller party or full house of six, Gwelfor comes highly recommended whatever the occasion or season.

Julia and Greg from London
29th December 2017

Christmas in Aberaeron was wonderful. Your home is welcoming and beautiful with charming décor, comfortable beds with breath-taking views. Our Christmas dinner in The Hive was delicious. Thank you for giving us all the home comforts and we will be back next year.

Bev and Keith from Cornwell
15th December 2017

We enjoyed all time we sent in this unspoilt haven. I slept so well and woke refreshed each morning. We had great food in The Hive and super walks all around especially along the beach at low tide right outside the Gwelfor.

About the Area

  • This 'Jewel of the Cardigan 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 - some 60 sailing vessels were built here including 35 schooners 'the greyhound of the ocean' - 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.
Aberaeron Craft Centre
  • Browse a range of quality crafts under one roof including jewellery, art, clothes, accessories, stylish homewares and more.
Ceredigion Coast Path near luxury coastal house in Aberaeron
  • 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 sea birds and there are charming fishing villages - spot bottlenose dolphins in the bay along the way!
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.
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) and gardens 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.
  • 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 in to 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.
A luxurious house set along the coast in Aberaeron perfect for year round holidays.
