  • "Cosy cottage with all we needed."

    The only thing would be that it is close to the main street and heavy traffic loud starting at 5am. When we booked we thought from the photo that the cottage might have been overlooking the marina. However everything else was fine.

  • "Thank you for a lovely few days."

    Personal circumstances forced us to cut our stay short but this is a lovely cottage in a great location.

  • "Cottage was well located and very well equipped."

    Site photos don’t do it justice. Very clean too. Bed was a little too soft for my back - but that was a minor issue. Weather was awful and we needed to keep the fire going to keep place warm enough - but owners had left plenty of logs to start us off. Would definitely recommend cottage.

  • "Fabulous cottage very comfortable and the garden is a real sun trap."

    We have had the best 4 nights with our Jack Russell Tommy he settled in straight away. The town is full of exciting places pub hosts amazing and The butcher had the best bacon and sausage. The cottage is just the best location for walks and little outings. Hope to book again soon Thanks

    Marianne, thank you for the kind words. We also have a Jack Russell called Mollie. When there isn't anyone in the cottage she enjoys coming up for a stay and loves walking around the harbour. Everyone there is so welcoming. Property Owner

    Really comfy, clean, well located and has been updated since the photos so even nicer. Would 100% recommend for a hassle-free stay in Aberaeron.

    Laura, Thank you for the lovely feedback, hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay in the cosy cottage which has been updated since these photos and was right in the centre of the small town."

    The yard was enclosed and private so our dog was safe to go outside. Pam Lai and the paradise pizza takeaways have nice food if you don't feel like cooking and there are a few shops nearby. We would go back for a weekend break.

    Hi, thank you for your feedback. The only question is, why have you marked the cottage down on the Accuracy of the listing. Many thanks. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the quaint Welsh town of Aberaeron in Ceredigion, Wales is this charming, two-bedroom semi-detached cottage, Melbourne House.

Enjoying a fabulous central location with easy access to the local amenities, as well as the beautiful pebbled Aberaeron beach, Melbourne House makes for an idyllic dwelling for couples or a family of four who are looking to explore this beautiful part of Wales.

Be welcomed into the living/dining room, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush sofa in front of your favourite film on the TV, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

As you start to feel peckish, make your way into the kitchen to rustle up flavourful culinary delights for your loved ones, with the help of the electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge.

Settle down to savour a delicious meal at the dining table for four, or if the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out on your very own private patio?

Wash away the day with a refreshing shower, before climbing the stairs to the first floor, where you will find two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Take advantage of your central location, where you will find a good selection of pubs and restaurants just a stone’s throw away, where you can treat your guests to a meal out and yourself to a night off from the kitchen!

Wander through the town which is speckled with multi-coloured houses and delightful gift shops where you can pick up a souvenir to remember your trip by!

Head down to the beach where you can soak up the beautiful sunsets, beach combe the shores or tuck-in to fresh fish and chips as you explore.

If you’re looking to get out on the waters, why not try your hand at one of the excellent selections of watersports on offer, including sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding, and for those who are after something more leisurely, boat trips where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Next stop is the bustling town of Lampeter, where you can brush up your local history at the Lampeter Museum, tour the delights of The Welsh Quilt Centre or enjoy a peaceful walk along the Afon Teifi.

Further afield you will find the scenic Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons National Park), where you can embark on a plethora of picturesque walks, discover market towns and fascinating heritage sites or embark up the impressive Pen Y Fan.

Be sure to check out Aberystwyth, home to a glorious beach and the fantastic Vale of Rheidol Railway offering a 12-mile-long ride through the rolling hills and woodlands.

For an unforgettable stay in Mid-Wales, look no further than Melbourne House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Lampeter 13 miles; Aberystwyth 16 miles.

A pretty Georgian coastal town located between Cardigan and Aberystwyth with a lovely pebble beach and beautiful sea views. There is an abundance of shops with unusual gifts, great eating places and pubs, and a quiet little harbour to enjoy watching the boats come and go. Aberaeron is perfectly positioned to enjoy boat trips and watersports, or coastal and countryside walks and cycle rides. Short drives to Cardigan to the south, or Aberystwyth to the north offer more shops, craft centres, museums and cinema or theatre visits. A wonderful Mid Wales location all year round.
