    Lovely cottage, superb location, great views across the valley and of the resident red kite. Sunny balcony and a conservatory for all weathers. Genuinely dog friendly.

The property

Aberaeron 4.5 miles.

A lovingly converted barn situated adjacent to the owner’s smallholding in Ciliau Aeron with stunning views across the Aeron Valley, just a short drive from the popular harbour side town of Aberaeron.

Providing flexible accommodation, this is a perfect base for family and friends who are looking for somewhere tranquil to retreat to where they can soak up the views after a day exploring the fantastic beaches of Cardigan Bay.

The large galleried sitting room is a cosy space to relax in front of the woodburner in the evenings.

On the mezzanine level is the quaint dining area which has doors opening out to a terraced balcony where you can take in the breathtaking valley views.

Up four steps from the sitting room is the well-equipped kitchen which leads to a shower room equipped with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner dispensers.

There is a ground floor twin bedroom which can be a king-size double on request and on the first floor is a large king-size double with en-suite facilities.

Completing the accommodation is the fantastic benefit of a rear conservatory which can be enjoyed no matter what the weather.

Outside, you can sit in the lawned garden or relax with a glass of something cool on the balcony and watch the sun go down.

This cottage is in a fantastic location within very easy driving distance of Aberaeron which is a charming coastal town.

There are a number of different walks on offer, National Trust properties, the Cors Caron National Nature Reserve and the seaside resorts of New Quay, Lampeter and Aberystwyth are well worth a visit.

With all this and more, Horseshoe Cottage provides a fantastic base.

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.
