About the property

Cottage in Dol y Bont, nr. Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Wales - A Perfect Base For Exploring The West Wales Coastline.

A single-storey detached property, situated across a driveway shared with the owners, Tanrallt Cottage is set in a quiet hamlet with views overlooking open farmland. Bounded by a stream, our cottage is comfortably furnished and offers a double bedroom, large fitted kitchen, shower room and a large living/dining room. Patio doors open from the living room onto a small patio area with garden furniture.

The cottage and the main house share a lovely setting, five minutes drive from the beach at Borth and equidistant from the spectacular sand dunes at Ynyslas and the university town of Aberystwyth, both approximately ten minutes drive away. Machynlleth, the ancient capital of Wales is only a twenty minute drive from the cottage.

With spacious rooms, gas central heating and double glazing throughout, the cottage is ideal for both summer and winter breaks.

Modern and very well equipped property with everything you could need. Clean, tidy, well decorated; a little home from home. Lovely welcome gift on arrival very much appreciated. Set in a very quiet hamlet with beautiful views. Would recommend and revisit.

A very nice and large house for two persons and in a very quiet region. We recommended this house.

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Karen, is very friendly and her service is very very nice. The cottage is about 10 minutes from Aberystwyth and the lovely coast. But also central when we travelled to the mountains or several nice towns and villages in the middle of North Wales.

Lovely clean comfortable cottage in a lovely spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable stay at Dol Y Bont. It is a very quiet and peaceful village. The cottage was ideal for the two of us, very comfortable with everything that we needed and more. There was a wee patio with table and chairs where you could sit, relax and enjoy the sun. The seaside town of Borth was only 5mins away, so it wasn't far to the beach.

Karen, the cottage owner, was very nice and very helpful.

No complaints at all.

  • 5 of 5

The area was beautiful, with plenty of fabulous costal walks and places to visit. The scenery and wildlife made it a walkers paradise. The cottage was perfect, well equipped for all our needs and set in an idyllic location for a truly memorable and relaxing holiday. Karen is an excellent host, whose thoughtfulness, attention to detail and help during our stay were invaluable. This is a fabulous little gem in a beautiful area, not to be missed. Perfect!

Activity and Interests


Two miles to Borth beach, approximately 5 minutes by car.


Birmingham International airport has a direct train service to Borth and Aberystwyth stations with onward travel to Dôl-y-bont by taxi or bus.

We recommend a car in order to fully explore the surrounding area. There are car hire facilities in Aberystwyth or if you drive here set your satnav for SY245LX.


Aberystwyth, the local large town with all amenities, is 5 miles away, and Borth which has beaches, supermarket, pubs, and restaurants is 2 miles away.

Further Details:

Aberystwyth is one of Wales favourite seaside resorts. Its Victorian prom spans both north and south beaches, a marina at one end and a clifftop railway to the other. The town offers a wide range of visitor attractions, including the Vale of Rheidol steam railway which links Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge and its spectacular waterfalls.

More recently, the areas surrounding Aberystwyth have been home to the locations of the BBC Hinterland series.

Borth lies to the north of Aberystwyth. Its family friendly beaches lead onto Ynyslas and the Dyfi National Nature Reserve with its magnificent sand dunes. It offers a range of cafés, shops and pubs.

Machynlleth, the ancient capital of Wales is home to a weekly market and near to the Centre for Alternative Technology.

East of Aberystwyth, Bwlch Nant yr Arian is a Red Kite feeding centre with walking and mountain bike trails, and to the north, the Ynys-Hir RSPB nature reserve offers five miles of nature trails.
