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 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.

Spacious house in good central location

  • 5 of 5

House was large enough and well equipt for two families staying. The immediate area is stunning , walking distance to a wildlife centre and a short drive to the coast.

The Amenities in Cardigan were all a short walk away, with the pub next door being very hospitable and a great Pizza restaurant just down the river.

Fabulous base for exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

A well equipped and comfortable town house, full of character, in the centre of Cardigan town. We had a wonderful family break, lots of diversity in the area and loads to do. The house was great value and we received very good service and communication about our stay. Recommend the wood-fired pizza tipi place down by the river!

Wonderful holiday home, full of character....

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully presented 3 story home housed our party of 9 with ease. With 4 children and 5 adults, all our needs and wants were met with this wonderfully well appointed period house. Cardigan is a perfect spot in itself with the water a stone's throw away and a busy little town a short walk down the road. From quaint coffee shops to major banks, this town sated all desires. The kids loved the playparks and the adults loved the pub right next door to the house. Boat rides, nature trails, museums plus much much more were all with walking distance. We took time out to visit Gwili Steam Railway a short drive to Carmarthen which was delightful but the miniature railway got the biggest smiles from kids and adults alike. The petrol heads amongst us enjoyed the go karts at Aberaeron particularly my 4 year old son who enjoyed his drive with dad in the 2 seater karts...Revisiting old childhood holiday destinations of New Quay and Aberystwyth brought back fond memories and the weather was kind enough for everyone to enjoy ice creams on these picturesque beaches.

All in all a fantastic home in a wonderfully central location. All mod cons, spacious and close to everything enjoyable by young and old alike. Looking forward to my next visit to the UK.

Stayed for a weekend for a local wedding - the house is lovely, in a great location within walking distance of the town & has everything you need.

All communication from the owner was clear and dealt with professionally.
