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

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in a quiet location with stunning views, then this is the place for you. Just 5-10 minute stroll into the village, where there are 2 pubs, 2 cafes and a small general store. The cottage is also comfortably equipped with all the usual mod cons. A perfect place to sit, relax and watch the world go by.

A comfortable, homely property with beautiful views of the sea and the surrounding countryside

  • 4 of 5

We had a short 3 day trip with my wife and 2 boys and a close friend and his wife and son. It was ideal for us with easy access to local beaches and via a short walk down the hill. Very safe for the kids. The house was ideal for us as the two couples had a room each with the plenty of space in the large attic room available for all the kids to share. The accommodation was homely but basic. This suited us. It wasn't luxurious, but that wasn't what I was looking for, as I didn't want the kids to have to worry about anything. The place was easy for us to look after and with a dishwasher we could easily put all the breakfast things in the there to get clean while we were out on the beach.

We were there during the Easter break so the wood burning stove was great for keeping us all toasty while we played board games later in the evenings. I particularly liked the patio chairs and tables towards the front of the house. Great for having a morning cup of coffee overlooking one of the best views in the world.

The village is small with a couple of good places to eat, two pubs and one small shop but to be honest that was all we needed. The roads there are very narrow so I would advise parking up outside the house for the duration of your stay and only use the car when absolutely necessary.

The owner was very helpful in her communication but the "owners direct" website less so. I certainly plan to go again.

Fantastic location for a long weekend break for 2 adults.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this as a last minute, long weekend break at the end of March. The property is in a great location, 10 mins walk to the beach or the coast path in either direction. For a couple staying here, the property had everything we needed (we are simple folk) it was clean and felt very homely, We will certainly be back. Fantastic weather, great walks, good pubs and amazing coast path views. Even had the urge to do one of the jigsaws there... which nearly resulted in having to book an extra night!

Spacious, quiet and lovely but lacking bare essentials

  • 3 of 5

Set on the hilltop looking at the sea, its location is wonderful and was the perfect get away from city life. Slightly dated and lacking in things like a frying pan, salt and pepper and other basic commodities, it was charming nonetheless. Thank you Linda for letting us stay in your families home, we enjoyed our stay as we sure many others will too.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you liked the property and had a good break. I'm sorry about the frying pan, I had thrown it away and had not been able to replace it in time for your visit. There should have been black pepper in the mill in the dining room, salt is always a problem as it doesn't keep dry. Thank you for your feed back- it's always useful.

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.
