  • "We love Bari."

    Our 3rd stay, this time over Christmas. The house is so well equipped it’s like home from home. We had asked if there would be a Christmas tree and were told no, but when we arrived there was one and a fabulous Christmas welcome pack. The house was very clean and so warm. We had a fabulous week. The location, so close to the harbour, beach and beautiful town is perfect.

    Thank you for your kind remarks. We are Glad you had a Great time. Happy New Year. Property Owner

    Some really good places to eat and drink, definitely will be back next year.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Bari and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The property needs improvements."

    There was black mold on the silicone in the shower and black spores on the ceiling, the bath panel was all cracked, looks like it had been taken off to fix the tap. The toilet seat was so loose we were nearly falling off. The twin room, one bed had stains on the duvet cover, the other, when stripping the bed on leaving day, there were dried yellow stains on mattress protector. There was thick dust everywhere, don't think sofa has ever been moved to be cleaned underneath or behind. The front door if you don't have the key shuts behind you and are locked out, luckily Sykes got in touch with owners who had a spare key. There were no recycling bags left out for us for rubbish day. It is the only place that I have ever stayed that have never left a small welcome pack. The only good thing about the property is location, however if I think these issues are sorted, it would be a lovely property

    Thank you for your comments although why you did not report this to Sykes when you locked yourselves out seems a bit strange. Also when you were let back in you said that everything was Fantastic. We have lots of repeat bookings and a very good score over the 5 years that the house has been a holiday home. Property Owner

  • "Initial impressions were very good, the house is superbly situated and close enough for any shopping and restaurants, let alone the splendid views over Cardigan Bay."

    Once we’d settled in on the Sunday evening however, we noticed a very distinct odour in the living room, which we put down to dogs. There were several air fresheners and candles on the mantelpiece, but what the room needs is a deep clean, and possibly the carpet to be replaced. We ended up buying several of our own candles to make sitting in the living room bearable, it served only to make us spend our evenings away from the house. We were aware that the property was pet friendly prior to booking, and having stayed at various properties where pets are welcomed this was a little surprising. One or two other minor points which need addressing, the bath panel being cracked and ill fitting and the fan for the bathroom does not work in the shower, where grouting between tiles has mould ingress. Finally, the toilet seat is too small and discoloured in the same bathroom. Positively speaking, the decoration and exterior are well maintained, and the property has all you’d need for a good sized family holiday. The layout of the house is quite charming.

    Thank you for your feedback, We have cleaned both carpets downstairs now. We are sorry you thought there was an unpleaseant smell and wish you had contacted us when you arrived as we could have sorted it out for you. Property Owner

    Very well equipped home from home, lovely welcome pack left for us - bread, butter & welsh cakes, thank you! Also lots of basics in cupboards although we had bought our own. Bed was so comfortable & great little garden to enjoy too! Love the area, been coming since childhood. Bari is perfectly located to enjoy Aberaeron & surrounding area. Walked along river to Llanchareon, short drives to New Quay & Aberystwyth & many more lovely places very nearby. Free parking was always available nearby or paid car park a short walk will be useful in busier periods. Sad to leave!

  • "We love Bari."

    This was our second stay. The location, so close to the sea, harbour and town is perfect. The house itself feels like home from home. The kitchen is so well equipped, there’s everything you could need. The garden is dog secure which is such a bonus. One small observation, we slept in the front en suite room and although the bed is very comfortable, the fitted sheet isn’t deep enough so as soon as you get into bed it pings off the corners, taking the mattress cover with it. We kept waking up on the mattress itself. That could be easily rectified. Anyway we will try to get back again next year.

    However, and please note this is not a criticism, only an observation. There were clothes pegs but no clothes line, there were no tea towels and there was not a non-slip mat despite there being 2 showers and a bath.

    Thanks for your feedback we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Bari. We are sorry there were no teatowels or no nonslip mats for the shower these are definately always there. We will rectify that. We do not have a clothes line but we do supply a clothes airer which can be put outside Property Owner

  • "Our second time staying here - the location is fab and we can bring our dog too!"

    Has all the facilities you need, the garden is a sun trap and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If I could make any improvements I would like the info folder to have more up-to-date info in it - I only knew when to put the rubbish out by looking at the council website - plus there was no black box for the glass. There is also quite a few lightbulbs needing replacing, didn't really bother us in the summer but just fyi. Would also be good if there was instructions on what to do on the last day. Oh, and there was a distinct lack of mirrors - the main bedroom just had 1 tiny mirror and nothing in the ensuite which wasn't great for my parents.

  • "Bari was a lovely well equipped and spacious house."

    We slept in the en-suite room and the bed was very comfortable. We were so close to the sea and a short level walk to town. We were able to park outside every day. Just two suggestions for the owners, there was no mirror in the room we slept in and the exterior of the house is tired and doesn’t reflect the interior. Other than that we had a lovely stay and would recommend the house. We have stayed in a lot of dog friendly holiday let’s and this was probably the best.

    Thank you for your kind comments. There should have been a mirror in the main bedroom, we will rectify that. We agree about the outside of the house we have been trying to get someone to paint it for 3yrs. it will definatly be done by the end of the year Property Owner

  • "The directions given were out of date as another person had mentioned owing to a new one way system being implemented."

    The web site said there was a dishwasher - if there was I never found it. The situation on recycling was nor very clear and no bags were left to utilise. I contacted the cleaning company on the second day and one bagwas delivered. I obtained the other bags from the council offices later in the week. I also notified the cleaning company that thre main light in the lounge had 4 dead bulbs in it making it difficult to read in. Despite being there for 2 weeks they were not repaired and I didn't think an elderly person should even attempt to repair them. Otherwise everything was spot on and a lovely place to stay in.

  • "Unfortunately our bedding was blood stained."

    We requested clean bedding and it arrived quickly. There are hardly any pans or bowls, to cook with. The one and only frying pan needed washing. The arrival pack needs up dating especially with addresses of Drs, dentist, hospital, and vets. The instructions for waste disposal very poor.

    Thank you for your feedback. The housekeepers have confirmed the bedding was clean and fresh on arrival.They were only notified on the second day of a fresh blood stain The kitchen has been checked and is fully equipped. Unsure why it has taken over three weeks to write your review when any problems could have been rectified immediately. All our previous feedback has never highlighted any of these issues.

    The town gets very busy during the day with visitors taking road parking up. Come evening we were able to get the car closer to the house. The house was very comfortable and the kitchen in particular very well equipped. The courtyard was a lovely spot to relax with a glass or two! A washing line or clothes horse would have been useful for drying beach wear. The bed linen in main bedroom was too small for the quilt/bed so a bit lumpy and bottom sheets wouldn’t stay put, but we managed and the beds themselves were very comfortable. All in all we had a fabulous week at Bari!

  • "First impressions: Bari looked a little tired from the outside."

    Now forget that. The cottage was well furnished in good taste. Very clean throughout, a credit to the cleaners. The kitchen was really well equipped (need more wine glasses). The little backyard was a suntrap. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was good to see a little chair in each bedroom. The two bathrooms were fresh and clean with plenty of hot water. The utility room and extra loo downstairs was a bonus. Overall we would give Bari and Sykes 11 out of 10. Would love to go back. Aberaeron is such a picturesque and friendly town.

The property

Positioned just a stone's throw away from the harbour and seafront, this colourful, semi-detached cottage rests in the heart of Aberaeron, between the coastal sweep that joins Cardigan and Aberystwyth.

Bari is a cosy dwelling for families and friends looking to explore this beautiful region of Ceredigion.

Step straight into the hallway from the street and feel a warm welcome from inside.

Move through to the inviting sitting room and unwind from a day at the beach on the sofa.

The kitchen to the rear of the cottage is well-presented with double doors through to the dining room, where you can gather for a delicious, sociable dinner and catch up on the days' activities.

There is also a separate cloakroom/utility from the kitchen, with a handy washing machine, should you need to do any laundry during your stay.

Up the stairs is a split landing with a twin room and family a bathroom on one side, whilst the king-size double with its own en-suite followed by a double room.

You have access to a lovely patio area to the rear, a real sun trap with garden furniture for you to sit out and soak up the seaside atmosphere as you sip a well-earned glass of wine.

You can enjoy a scenic stroll to Llanerchaeron, the National Trust's elegant Georgian villa set in the Aeron Valley.

There are some fantastic beaches in the area, such as the mile of golden sands at the National Trust's Penbryn, one of Ceredigion's best-kept secrets.

You can also enjoy the secluded cove at Mwnt, which is framed by a luscious patchwork of green and jagged cliffs jutting out into the bay.

Spend some time exploring the villages of Cwmtydu, Llangrannog and Tresaith accessed via the Wales Coast Path, and journey over to New Quay to catch glimpses of dolphins gliding across the water.

If you venture north to Aberystwyth, you have the Funicular Railway and steam railway, suitable for all ages to enjoy, as well as the Royal Pier and promenade.

Further inland are the Cambrian Mountains and Cors Caron National Nature Reserve at Tregaron.

You can have whatever holiday you choose here at this delightful seafront cottage.
