  • "When we arrived the freezer was completely frosted over."

    There is no handrail on the stairs and as the toilet is downstairs It was awkward as I go several times in the night. I found it difficult to light the open fire as no kindling was provided, only firefighters which took several attempts. There is no information as to where the fuse box is so when the light when out there was a problem. I phoned the emergency number but could not speak to anyone but had to use the ap which was difficult

    Thank you for your comments. We have added the location of the RCD consumer unit to our welcome letter but we would be grateful if you could let us or our Agent know which appliance caused the circuit to trip and whether it was one brought with you. RCD's are far safer and sensitive to faults that might not immediately blow a fuse in a traditional fuse board. I am glad we were able to quickly resolve the issue. A handrail is planned to be installed next month. We supply a starter pack for the fire. Apologies if the kindling was missing. Defrosting the freezer between changeovers is difficult but it has now been defrosted. We hope you enjoyed your week in our stunning valley. Property Owner

  • "Such a beautiful home with a beautiful beach within a 5 min walk."

    We loved our stay here, the view was beautiful, it was very peaceful, the log fire was a special touch too. We felt very at home, cosy and safe. Other beaches, villages and attractions within a short drive too. There is a caravan park close to the property which the photos hide, and at the end of the driveway there is another rental property. One improvement for us as dog onwers would be for the access between the two properties to be gated/fenced maybe? We had to be really on top of stopping the dogs wandering to next doors garden as they also had a dog - maybe something about garden not been enclosed could be added to description. Either way, I'd love to visit again! Beautiful. Thankyou

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The gardens are enclosed but we haven't erected a dog proof barrier between the properties as this would affect the stunning views. The mobile homes in the valley below are not intrusive. We look forward to welcoming you back.. We've now set up an instagram account for 'dolwylan' that has more photos of the views and beaches nearby which compliment those shown on the web-site. Property Owner

    Very clean and comfortable. Location perfect. Tons to do. Peaceful and lovely to be so close to nature and experience the elements 10/10.

    Thank you for your kind comments. It's a lovely spot and we have further improvements planned for early 2023. Property Owner

  • "We loved Dolwylan."

    The decor was well judged and the house very well appointed - every time we wondered ‘I wonder if there’s a…’ sure enough there it was. The area was wonderful and our girls loved the pebbly beach. The caravan park nearby (busy when we were there) was a little unexpected and isn’t represented in the clever photography of the property. However, we had a lovely time and adored the house and its setting.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear you liked the Cottage and enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Such a beautiful cottage."

    Amazing sea views, from the terrace. A great location for alfresco dinning. The interior design was perfect. Such thoughtful details. The sheep were an added bonus! Lovely to know the barn is so close, would be easy to rent both properties at once for larger groups. Great location for all the local beaches and walks.

    We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you again next year. Property Owner

  • "Hello - We had a lovely time at Dolwylan Cottage."

    Perfectly happy with our stay. If are your looking for issues to improve the outdoor chairs look a bit old and not too sturdy. Also the rubbish arrangements were clear enough but we only found the one official council bin bag for the recycling. Once we'd put it out for collection on Wednesday we needed to buy our own for the remainder of the week. Do the council only supply /collect 1 bag per week ? Thanks, Dave.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you had a good week. This is our first year and we continually look to improve the facilities at Dolwylan; an upgrade to the garden furniture is on the list. There should be an ample supply of bin bags under the sink; the council do supply additional bags but these need to be collected. We will add this information to our Welcome letter. Property Owner

Dolwylan Cottage & Barn

These charming properties rest near the picture-perfect coast of New Quay, Mid Wales and consist of a one-bedroom barn and a two-bedroom cottage. Situated in Cwmtydu, the properties make a lovely base for exploring Wales, or even as an escape to relax and unwind in the fresh sea air. With off-road parking, sea views and character features, these pet-friendly holiday homes are a superb choice for a family break or friends sharing. Take advantage of your closeness to the glorious Welsh coastline by walking the Ceredigion Coast Path; start off by heading down the short walk to Cwmtydu, a delightful little shingle beach with stream which was once a smugglers cove. Continue along the Coast Path, soaking in the spectacular sights as you explore the stunning coastline up towards New Quay and down towards Llangrannog and Penbryn beaches which have been included in the Sunday Times' 2022 selection of the 50 best beaches in the UK; the options are truly limitless! At the end of an action-packed day, take a break from cooking by indulging in some fish and chips at New Quay or a spot of pub fare at The Ship in Llangrannog or the Ship Inn at Tresaith! For the adventurous, try the white water canoeing at Llandysul or perhaps a more leisurely paddle further downstream on the River Teifi at Cilgerran. Those looking for a more leisurely time can take in the Georgian delights of coastal Aberaeron and then travel inland to tour the 18th century estate of Llanerchaeron, preserved by the National Trust, where an exquisite walled garden and an ornamental lake offer a truly idyllic setting for a stroll. Further afield, Cardigan offers a visit to its Castle which hosted the first Welsh Eisteddfod in 1176, along with a range of independent shops, galleries, cafes, pubs, supermarkets, a leisure centre/swimming pool and a fantastic cinema at Theatr Mwldan. Enjoy a coastal break with loved ones at the Dolwylan Cottage & Barn.

This delightful seaside town is one of the most popular holiday resorts all year round, and it is easy to see why when you stroll along the sea edge and enjoy the beautiful views.

Just 7 miles away is Aberaeron, a lively Georgian harbour town with multi-coloured cottages and a good selection of restaurants and inns. This wonderful area of Wales not only has stunning sandy beaches, but also beautiful countryside walks and the outstanding Devil's Bridge is world-renowned for the three bridges, the narrow gauge steam railway and the cascading waterfalls.
