About the property

Bungalow in Llangrannog, Ceredigion, Wales - 5 Minutes Walk To Beautiful Beaches, National Coast Path And National Trust Heritage Coastline

Morwelir occupies an elevated position above the popular holiday village of Llangrannog. It offers value for money accommodation in a glorious, quiet position and is surrounded by sun terrace , private garden and mountainside. The property has been in my family for 40 years and we have been letting it out for at least 25 years with many guests returning year after year, we hope you will be one of them.

About Linda Synge

If you have got this far with my advert I hope you like what you see and are considering our property for your holiday. As a family we have had many happy times in Morwelir over the years, and put a good deal of thought and hard work into it. I hope my character is reflected in the property, flaws and wonky bits as well as the sleek and smooth bits!

Linda Synge purchased this bungalow in 1960

Why Linda Synge chose Ceredigion

I had my 2nd birthday at Bywell a house in the main village that my parents rented by chance because my mother loved Cornwall, and someone said that Llangrannog was very like Cornwall but a good deal nearer from our home in Warwickshire. We came every year after that. One day we walked up the track past Morwelir to picnic in the fields at the top and my mum spotted a grubby postcard in the window saying 'for sale'. My father bought Morwelir at auction in 1967 for £2000! Since taking over the property I have been trying to modernise and update it and all profit is used for repairs and improvements.

What makes this bungalow unique

As soon as I arrive at Morwelir I know why I love this place. Come wind, rain or glorious sunshine it is fun to be in. I love the fact that you can have an almost car free holiday just walking down to the beach for the day, it makes such a change from zooming everywhere in the car.

Llangrannog is a lovely safe village where children can have some independence and buy ice creams and things from the shop without parents always being right behind them.

People say isn't it boring to keep coming back to the same place but I still find places that I haven't been to and new things to do every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bungalow far exceeded our expectations and had a lovely time in Llangrannog, as ever, nice to get away in peaceful surroundings with great views. Ps. When I win the lottery I will make Linda an offer she can't refuse for the property as we loved it. Oct 13

Morwelir is a lovely, quaint cottage in a beautiful location and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. May 13

The house is basic but comfortable- you get what you pay for, but has a great family feel to the place. Surprisingly big rooms too. We just stayed 2 nights, wish it was longer. May 12

morwelir cottage

  • 1 of 5

the property itself was in a lovely position overlooking the sea but it was very basic. We booked it for four days and I'm sad to say that we were very disappointed with the state of the cottage. There was a serious problem with flies in the attic bedroom that needs to be addressed. It was very cosy in there of a night and if you are able to look past the condition then you will enjoy your stay. The kitchen wall was black with damp and the bath needs replacing. The wall over the fire was black with damp and most of the paint was peeling off the walls The village itself and the surrounding area is beautiful, the people are really friendly and The Ship is a definite must. Beaches are all lovely and clean and the walks take in some fantastic scenery.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you liked the position and outlook. We always get flies coming into the gaps around windows every autumn, along with every other house in the area. We provide cans of fly spray for use, but I realise it is a problem. The kitchen is being replaced and the walls lined early next year. The bathroom was refurbished last year, but the cast iron bath was not replaced as it is an original fitting. Thank you for your feedback, it is very helpful.

Perfect seaside holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Morwelir was the perfect dog-friendly seaside cottage. The cottage has the best position in Llangrannog being equally close to easy access to the countryside for dog walking and to the village with its wonderful sandy beach and eating & drinking places( two pubs, two cafes and fishχps). When we went (June) half the beach was dog friendly with easy access to the next totally dog friendly beach, both pubs were dog friendly and The Ship Inn did superb food.

The beaches were safe for swimming and the main one had life guards so good for kids.

The cottage itself was bright, cheerful and homely with practical flooring and furnishings. It had everything we needed apart from a washing machine but I understand that the kitchen is being updated to accommodate one this winter. The bathroom was cosy; the shower better than the bath which I could never get quite deep enough. The huge living room had ample comfortable seating plus the big dining table and the view from the window was of woodland and the sea. There was space to sit and eat outside plus a private garden for lounging in. Plenty of parking and few neighbours all of whom were friendly. The nearby Farm Shop was very good indeed but the local garage had a good range of supplies too so there was no need to go far. The village beach shop sold milk etc.

We had a wonderful two weeks.

A little piece of heaven

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Morwelir for 9 days it being April we didn't expect wonderful weather, so we had, sun, rain, hail & snow! The beach is very pretty and easy to walk to 5 minutes down hill, 10 minutes back up. It's a very safe area for dogs and children alike. Watch out for sheep in the top field along the lane! Definitely need a car to go anywhere.

The property is aged and could do with a lick of paint but as we had dogs it was ideal for us. The character of the property is definitely time warped 1930's? which is great and I hope it remains like it when decorating is done. Fantastic views and sunsets, very quiet, a little piece of heaven! Really enjoyed our stay.

Great location but in need of maintenance and a thorough clean

  • 2 of 5

It's a lovely peaceful location very close to the coast and Llangrannog village with a public footpath into the woods straight from the house. The cottage is well equipped with plenty of space, though the kitchen is small.

Negative points:

Damp must be an issue in places as there was black mould on areas of the kitchen walls and in places in the front bedroom. Also, the skirting boards in the front bedroom were very dirty and in need of a good wipe down. Some of the furniture had seen better days, including the garden furniture - one wooden seat at the front had fallen apart. Outside at the back a sack of rubbish was left by the back door and one of the bins was full - presumably from a previous let. The drain from the bathroom was blocked causing flooding of the rear yard - it had clearly been like this for a while. Every time we used the sink in the bathroom it caused flooding outside the back door and this put us off from using the bath and shower. We contacted the owner on our first morning and someone was sent to unblock it 4 days later.

This could be a great holiday home but it was clearly in need of some TLC. It is described as 'value for money' accommodation, but it should at least be clean for guests and rubbish removed, and the blocked drain should really have been addressed straight away. We did enjoy our stay as the location is lovely but but it was spoilt somewhat by the aforementioned. We took photos but unfortunately can't attach them to this review.

Owner's Response: I know this guest experienced difficulties with the drains. It was my daughters wedding that weekend and so it took longer for me to get it sorted that I would like. My cleaning lady was surprised and sorry that you found the property unclean,I think she offered to clean it again for you, but she has taken note of your points for the future. The sea air makes all properties susceptible to damp, we have begun a programme of lining the walls with thermal board ( as in the bathroom) but this will take a while to complete, however this will deal with the slight mound problem. A new kitchen ( with lined walls ) is going in this Autumn. I know that the property is far from perfect but I feel that this is reflected in the price which is considerably lower than similar properties of this size in this type of location. I'm glad to you managed to enjoy parts of your holiday.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful peaceful location, very surprised at the lengths the owner has gone too with making sure everything is available in the cottage. We had a lovely time and will certainly be returning.
