Pant -y- Celyn
Cardigan Bay in general and New Quay harbour in particular are among the best places in Britain to spot dolphins at play. For self catering accommodation within easy reach of this marine wonderland, enjoy the comforts of Goitre Bach or its sister property Pant y Celyn, a studio apartment ideal for couples or small families.
These privately owned, dog friendly properties are both in the village of Llwyncelyn, only 20 minutes’ walk from the Wales Coast Path, the shingle beach of Gilfach yr Halen and the bay which attracts not only bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises, seals and seabirds but also surfers, kayakers, windboarders and anglers.
Nearby is the pleasant town of Aberaeron with unique shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. Along the coast there are beautiful sandy beaches and opportunities to walk and explore, including the National Trust mansion at Llanerchaeron.
Goitre Bach sleeps up to five people in two rooms, plus a baby. The bathroom has a walk in shower, making it easy on the knees and downstairs are a beautifully furnished living room and well equipped kitchen/diner. The outside has an enclosed patio garden.
Pant y Celyn is small but perfectly formed and all on the ground floor, adjoining the owner’s bungalow.
“Both properties are home from homes with everything they need to be comfortable,” says owner Collette Jenkins.
Towyn Farmhouse is surprisingly spacious 5 Star self catering accommodation and absolutely perfect for the larger family or a group of friends to enjoy the picturesque Ceredigion coast. With five large bedrooms, sea views and an impressive hot tub, the formerly derelict farmhouse has been recently been rebuilt, stone by stone, and stylishly equipped with all the modern conveniences to make it the perfect modern holiday haven.
Sandy beaches abound in this glorious part of west Wales and the nearest are just a few minutes’ drive away. The coast is known for its dolphins and other wildlife – easily spotted from the coastal path – and nearby Cardigan is a vibrant market town rich in history, culture and character.
Pet-friendly Towyn Farmhouse is sheltered behind trees in the coastal hamlet of Gwbert, and sleeps 12 plus one well behaved dog. Three bedrooms have king sized beds, two en suite and one on a mezzanine floor with sea views. A fourth bedroom, a twin, is also en suite.
Downstairs is another double bedroom and a separate wetroom shower and toilet. There are two TV lounges with sumptuous seating, both with a log burner. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully equipped and there are separate utility and games rooms. Outside there are gardens back and front, a sun terrace, that fabulous Swimspa hot tub and parking for eight vehicles.
