Guestbook comments from the manager

“What a lovely place, great taste, had a great week here, recommend Jamieson’s Steak House.” (The Payne family, Oxford, May 2014)

“What a lovely house! Fitted our situation perfectly. Very comfortable, could’ve stayed a lot longer. Lovely enclosed garden which was safe for the young grand-children. We were very lucky with the weather -it was gorgeous. Had a lovely week, would certainly recommend it.” (The Rushton family, Newcastle, Staffs, June 2014)

“Another great week at Aberporth!” (The Carletons and Needhams – July, 2014 – 3rd stay at Tir a Môr)

“We had a wonderful stay at Tir a Môr! The house is an excellent holiday home, fully equipped with everything we couldhave needed. Thank you for the badminton rackets – after much playing we managed a rally of 113!” (The Grahams and Goldings, Stoke-on-Trent, July 2014).

“Never been here before and I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a more beautiful house. Add to this a superb view and lovely countryside and you have the recipe for a perfect holiday. The little train to Devil’s Bridge was a delight, and the cathedral at St David’s was a deeply uplifting experience. Try to go.” (Enoch and Vaga families, Ilkeston and Liverpool, Aug 2014)

Beautiful house with amazing sea views

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful holiday although the weather was mixed. The house was spotlessly clean and spacious, with lots of information about things to do in the area. The sea views from the kitchen, and particularly the lounge, were splendid. The private garden, which was not overlooked, was perfect for a BBQ and al fresco dining. Also, a perfect place to relax.

Dolphin beach in Aberporth was our favourite in the area, but we also walked from Aberporth to Tresaith on the coastal path. We played golf at Cardigan Golf Club and there were sea views from all 18 holes. It is well worth a visit for golfers. For a special night out, we would recommend Jamieson's Steakhouse in Aberporth.

We definitely recommend this property and hopefully we will return in the future.

Great Property with Amazing Views of Aberporth

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with amazing views. We spent 5 nights here during the Easter holidays with our 2 boys (4 YO and 11months). The house feels very warmly and has all the facilities you need, really clean and showers are also great. The walk down to the beach is fantastic and we had a good few days on the beach, there is a café, pub and chip shop close by. Overall a fantastic property, spacious kitchen and lovely living room to lounge in on those relaxed evenings. We will definitely be back ... !

Lovely holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

Great house in elevated position above Aberporth with great sea views, mainly from the upstairs lounge. All the facilities were excellent and the house spotlessly clean. The garden areas are lovely and private but due to some dodgy weather we didn't get the chance to use them !

Aberporth is a bit short of eating options and the pub (The Ship) stops serving food at 8pm. Worth going the mile or two up the coast to the pub at Tresaith (also called the Ship) - a much nicer pub with a wider choice of food, great sea views and serves much later - worth booking if you want a sea view table though as it gets busy. Excellent base for the Ceredigion coastal trail, would recommend the sections north up to New Quay as being better then the section down to Cardigan. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your excellent review, Mike. Very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Tir a Môr. Just for information for those who may not know Aberporth - in addition to the Ship, Aberporth has an Indian Restaurant, a fish and chip shop and a Chinese takeaway. Also Jamieson's Steakhouse - a bit pricey but very good food.

Fantastic house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit but hopefully not our last. I have stayed in many rental properties and this was one of the best. Well equipped and maintained to a very high standard.

The views were great and the morning cuppa sitting by the patio doors became our routine. An easy walk to the beach made for a relaxed day and on a clear evening the light pollution is low so the stars come out in abundance.

The Ship in Aberporth was really good for an evening meal and Cardigan is close, and is a nice town to visit for a wander and lunch.

Definitely a property and area that should appear on your shortlist.

Home from home + stunning views

Stunning holiday home with fab views


5 out of 5

Two adults, two teenagers and one toddler.

We fell in love this stunning house the minute we saw it. It is in a very quiet location and, because it is totally enclosed, felt really secure. The view from the upstairs sitting room is fantastic, while the room itself is very spacious. The rest of the house is well laid out and furnished to a very high standard. Everything you will need for a complete holiday is at your finger tips. It is spotlessly clean and fresh with every little detail thought of-- books, pictures, DVDs, CDs and guides to the surrounding area, which we found helpful. The patio area is a real sun trap, which 2 sun loungers available in addition to the table and chairs for six people.

The location is ideal for either quiet time or take a short walk into the village and explore the two small clean beaches.

The Ship In, the local Bar/restaurant is the place to go. Lovely, welcoming staff and a nice uncomplicated menu. It is very family friendly and on the two occasions we went there we had a very enjoyable time. We went swimming and rock-pool exploring on both beach's, followed by a wonderful coastal walk and topped off with ice creams on the way home We highly recommend this holiday home (and I mean HOME) and the whole area to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life or for families wanting to spend some quality time together.

From the Owner

The house was built in 2011 and it is now complete. We love West Wales and when this plot became available we went for it. It feels like going back in time to a more leisurely rural environment. At the same time, there are plenty of shops and things to do in the area.

Further Details:

Ceredigion is a coastal county extending from just south of Cardigan to Aberystwyth and beyond to the north, and inland as far as the dramatic Cambrian Mountains. It is Wales’s best kept secret – it’s attractions may not be as well-known as those in some other counties, but it is nonetheless a region with a wonderful countryside and coastline. The Teifi Valley flows through the county rising near the historic abbey of Strata Florida. It flows through Tregaron then curves westwards through Lampeter, Newcastle Emlyn and out to sea at Cardigan. This beautiful valley wends its way through a variety of land formations from the peat bogs near Tregaron, to the waterfalls at Llandysul, Henllan and Cenarth and a gorge at Cilgerran, before flowing out to sea at the vast Poppit Sands beach west of St. Dogmaels. All of these places are accessible by road and can be easily visited and enjoyed. Aberporth is an ideal base for visiting the county and all its attractions.

Local events taking place in the area include:

Barley Saturday, Cardigan – horse and vintage machine parade: end April

Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival, Aberaeron : July

Cardigan River Food Festival : August

Cardigan County Agricultural Show : July

Cardigan Bay Regatta, New Quay : August
