About the property

5 bedroom period townhouse close to fantastic coastline

This early 19th century, traditional Welsh stone town-house has period features such as slate flooring, original oak beam over an inglenook-hearth and Victorian iron-work fireplaces, and provides comfort and space for family members of all ages or groups seeking a tranquil, relaxed stay. The house is in the old part of Cardigan; a bustling, historical Welsh market-town. You can walk to shops, cafes, restaurants and stalls selling local produce, or visit cultural events, art galleries, theatre/cinema. Walk to the Wildlife Reserve or the coastal path, which is on the Heritage coastline with its protected, marine observation area. The nearby coast is unsurpassed and is a bird-watchers and water-sports haven. There are many superb beaches close by as well as interesting Celtic sites to visit eg Iron Age Settlement, burial chambers, Saints and Stones tour, St Davids Cathedral etc. Beautiful countryside for pony-trekking and nearby golf. Enjoy extreme sports; learn about conservation!

Lovely house for families

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four shared a wonderful 3 nights over the New Year at this lovely house in the old part of Cardigan. The Red Lion pub next door was always welcoming and literally a stone's throw away, even for those with a poor throwing action! Cardigan town has plenty to offer with beaches and other amenities close in a car. An hour's drive will take you to St David's where our families enjoyed a day out at a sustainable bug farm, where the adventurous can try their hand at a new food source. I recommend it for the kids. In terms of the accommodation it had everything we needed for three wonderful nights away.

Wonderful stay in the cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a terrific week in and around the cottage in Cardigan. Our three children adored the billiard table and the space the cottage offered. Everything was to our full satisfaction. Kitchen was well equiped.

We especially recommend to make use of the numerous possibilities of the Cardigan area for nature lovers, hikers, dolphin spotters etc.

Beach day at Mwnt was extraordinary....

The town of Cardigan offers everything you may need. Excellent pizza at the fforest (riverside).

Thank you and best regards,

Andrea with family, back in Switzerland

Lovely Welsh house great for a group/ large family.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Welsh house with an interesting history.

Very will equipped with anything you would need (and more) for a holiday, including safety equipment for little ones if you needed it and things to do on a rainy day.

Very thick walls so hampers phone/ internet reception, quite amusing watching people stand in odd places to get a reception though :) also means that you can get away from it all.

Stayed with a party of 8 in August and plenty of room for everyone.

2 of the mattress's are futon so quite firm, and therefore may not be to everyone's preference, others are apparently comfortable!

Town its self is nice and a good base to explore nearby beaches, scenary is stunning. Yum Yums sweet shop was a big hit with us too.

Local beaches are simply beautiful, local people that we spoke with all very friendly and helpful.

Owner very accommodating.

Would recommend.

Unique historic property in need of some TLC

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 adults recently spent 4 nights in this unique home. It is full of character and located in an ideal location for walking into town. We were attending a wedding in Cardigan, and were able to walk to the wedding and back home from the reception. Since parking is down an alley from the house, we were happy to have the option of walking. Driving our mini bus to the parking lot through the alleyway was a little challenging.

Even though there are only 1.5 baths, we were able to rotate our shower times to accommodate everyone, and we never ran out of hot water. The only criticism I have is that the home needs a really good cleaning......a big dose of TLC. There were cobwebs over all the light fixtures, and in many of the rooms. The kitchen counter had coffee grounds (or tea leaves..... couldn't tell which) all across the counter, and the tea kettle still had water in it. The floors, too, needed a good scrubbing.

All in all, though, the home can't be beat for it's location to town. The owner was very responsive and helpful when we needed it. We enjoyed out time there.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry our normally high standard of cleaning was not fully met on this particular occasion but can assure prospective guests of our lovely traditional house that this will be rectified! L. Sofair, owner

Lovely Spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend at this cottage. We were 2 couples each with 2 young children and we had lots of space. We had the top floor with 2 bedrooms - 1 with double bed and the second one with 3 beds - perfect for the kids. Our friends had the middle floor with 2 bedrooms and a lounge and bathroom. There were stair gates at the property which were easily installed to keep the kids on the right floor!. Ground floor had the kitchen, dining room, playroom, toilet and laundry, All in all very spacious, well equipped, lots of interesting books and very comfortable and clean.

There is a small pub next door - but quiet and not very busy so we did not hear it. There is a small public parking place 2 mins around the corner near the river which is perfect. Cardigan is lovely town with lots of shops and restaurants and there are lots of amazing beaches nearby.

All arrangements and communications with the owner were organised and friendly. Happy to recommend this as a place to stay.
