New Quay 13 miles.
The small scattered Welsh village of Pontsian offers a village shop and pub, and makes an ideal spot for exploring this part of Wales. The wonderful Welsh coastline is within a short drive, with sandy beaches and spectacular scenery on coastal walks. New Quay offers a great day out shopping, relaxing on the beach, surfing the waves, visiting the tea rooms, restaurants or pubs, or taking a boat trip to spot the resident seals and dolphins. The dry ski slope at Llangrannog is a fun day out for all the family, and all the local towns run weekly markets. Explore historic flour and woollen mills, castles, craft centres and museums in the surrounding area and enjoy the natural scenic beauty of the countryside wherever you walk or drive in this unspoilt part of Wales.

Previous visitors' comments about Yr Hen Beudy:
The hosts were very friendly and we had a very warm welcome and stay. The cottage's rooms are well equipped and furnished and all marvellously decorated with the artist's work.
Mr Hebenstreit, Rudolstadt, August 2012
We liked the peace and quiet and the remoteness of the property. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Mrs Sutton, Southampton, July 2012
A warm welcome from the owners on our arrival. The cottage was in a very peaceful location along a lane well off the main road. However, it is also conveniently located for exploring the Ceredigion countryside and towns such as Lampeter, Newcastle Emlyn and Canarth as well as the coast from Aberystwyth right down to the Pembrokeshire coast, with all the little villages and beaches in between. A very relaxing week which passed all too quickly.
Mr Hunter, Glasgow, June 2012
The cottage owners made us so welcome when we arrived. The cottage was lovely, all mod cons and we cannot fault any of the amenities at all.
