An extremely relaxed and relaxing holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Very efficient booking and joining instructions. The bungalow is very relaxed and informal and comfortable to stay in; not high-end luxury, just comfortable. Well supplied and fitted out with decades of owners possessions - everything (including pantry supplies) needed for a simple holiday

Stayed before, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Owners are lovely, good communications. Cottage is in a fabulous, peaceful and very scenic location. Lots of room, board games & videos for kids if a rainy day. Lovely big garden and views. Clean and comfortable. Everything you need. 5 minutes car from Borth high street and 15 minute drive from Aberystwyth. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Excellent.

Wow, highly recommend this large spacious and well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from a fantastic week in this cottage. The weather certainly helped our beach holiday go so well but we couldn't of had a better base. A spacious family bungalow very well equipped for keeping my 4 teenagers happy with wifi, freeview tv, games table and plenty more. The beach was fantastic and dog friendly in August which is brilliant, with a few local shops for all your essentials and the town of Aberystwyth about 30 minutes drive away we found it a truly enjoyable holiday. A really good value for money accommodation which was both comfortable and ticked all the boxes highly recommended

Car: recommended

Nearby Borth (1.5miles) is an old Victorian seaside town strung along the seafront with a range of traditional, cafes, fish and chip shops, and art and craft shops. Upper Borth beach has an area of rockpools which are great for children to explore as well as an area of beach supervised by lifeguards in the summer season.

Machynlleth and Aberdovey lie to the north along the beautiful Dovey estuary. The former is a charming market town [markets on Wed am], with the Celtica experience, Centre for Alternative Technology and Raptor centre nearby. Aberdovey is a very pretty seaside town.

For wildlife lovers the area is unsurpassed, with the Borth Bog wetlands/ Dyfi nature reserve, and sand-dunes surrounding Ynyslas supporting rare and prolific wildlife, the RSPB/Osprey project at Ynys-hir, and the Red kite feeding centre at Nant-y-Arian. Ravens, peregrines and seals can be seen on cliff walks south of Borth, and dolphins are commonly sighted in the bay.

For walkers there are cliff walks, farmland and forestry commission, the beautiful Reidol valley, and the stunning mountains of the Plynlimon range and Snowdonia.

There is golf at Borth, Aberdovey and Aberystwyth, [all good 18-hole golf courses] and a smaller charming 9-hole course [pay and play] at Capel Bangor, a few miles inland. Fishing, swimming, surfing [lessons at Borth], sailing [Aberystwyth/Aberdovey], and horse-riding are all available.

For children there is an Animalarium at Borth, a butterfly farm at Capel Bangor, and the fascinating Llywernog silver mines in the hills near Nant-y-Arian where you can go underground like miners of old. The Reidol narrow gauge steam railway runs out of Aberystwyth along the valley to the waterfalls at Devils bridge- a great day’s excursion.

The larger town of Aberystwth [20 mins by car along the scenic coast road] has a wide range of impressive Victorian buildings, shops, supermarkets and restaurants to suit all tastes. There is a cinema, leisure centre, good museum, castle, pier/promenade, and excellent theatre/gallery [at the university] which puts on very good summer productions.

All in all this area of west wales has something for everyone who likes getting out and about!
