  • "Blackout blinds in ground floor bed room would prevent waking up with the dawn."

    Lovely property with amazing views. People of a certain age should be warned of the steepness of the top of the drive, and that a small car is an asset as the space for parking and turning is limited. Signage to the cottage could be improved.

    Thank you for your comments, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. The last section of the drive to the cottage is steep, there have been food delivery vans to the top and the parking can accommodate two cars. I have asked the gardener to clear the roadside sign which recently has got a little overgrown. The downstairs bedroom was refurbished this year but I will review the lined curtains. Property Owner

  • "Difficult access across a field ( two gates to open )to the property which is sited on a steep incline."

    Beautiful views and comfortable property. Kitchen needs updating. Washing machine but no drier.

    Thank you for your comments. I am pleased you found the cottage comfortable and the views exceptional. The access is a private tarred road, with two gates which can be the norm in rural farming areas. The property and country kitchen have recently been refurbished with new kitchen appliances, as detailed in the description. There is ample outdoor hanging space and an indoor airer, a dryer would detract from the cottages eco carbon footprint. Property Owner

The property

A beautiful stone barn conversion with Carbon Neutral Eco Credentials overlooking the idyllic Cardigan Bay in Llanaber, Ceilwart Cottage sleeps six guests and offers stunning sea views; it’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy with friends or family.

The downstairs living room is the perfect place to cosy up in winter with a well-deserved drink after a long day exploring the local beaches; let the wood burning stove crackle away whilst you unwind.

Ceilwart cottage has a good size kitchen with all the amenities you need including a fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and Aga range cooker.

There is a large garden room with a table where you can sit down and enjoy a freshly cooked meal, all whilst admiring the incredible sea views thanks to the large bi-folding doors which open up bringing the outside in.

Wake up to a beautiful view in the roomy double bedroom with en-suite downstairs and admire the beach and sea in front of you as soon as you open your eyes, with a ground-floor shower room to freshen up in.

Upstairs there are two more bedrooms with the spacious double bedroom boasting a Juliet balcony for further picturesque sea views, along with a twin bedroom and another bathroom offering a roll-top bath with an overhead shower.

Relax in the first-floor sitting room with a good book for a quiet moment away from the group, complete with a TV, electric fire and a corner sofa, as well as access to the fabulous first-floor terrace, perfect for sitting out in the sunshine enjoying spectacular views.

With plenty of garden space to also enjoy with garden furniture the only worry you’ll have is what drink to have next.

The location of the cottage is within walking distance of all the essentials you'll need including bars/restaurants, not to mention the stunning stretch of sandy beach which is always clean and rarely overcrowded!

Venture into Barmouth to explore the quaint streets and classic seaside amusements, with Barmouth Harbour being an idyllic spot to spend an afternoon with lots of cafés and ice cream parlours to visit, before trying your hand at some crab fishing or taking a boat ride!

Head down to the local watersports shop to rent equipment like paddle-boards, surfboards and kayaks for fun in the water.

Barmouth Bridge, which was 150 years old in 2017 offers free passage for pedestrians or cyclists to cross from Barmouth to Fairbourne where you'll find the famous Mawddach Trail along the disused railway line towards Dolgellau via the George the III pub.

Visit Harlech for a day surrounded in Welsh history and take a walk around this striking castle or take the little ones to the swimming pool here where they can splash about and have hours of fun.

Go and explore the great outdoors with a hike, with nearby footpaths that leads to the beach or up over the hills whilst visiting this area, with the nearby Snowdonia National Park offering a wealth of amazing walking routes bringing you to breath-taking scenery.

Barmouth 1 mile; Harlech 8 miles.

The small coastal village of Llanaber lies between one of the most picturesque resorts on the Welsh coast, Barmouth, and the World Heritage Site of Harlech, all surrounded by the unrivalled splendour of the Snowdonia National Park. Llanaber overlooks beautiful Cardigan Bay and the Llyn Peninsula beyond and is home to the historic 13th century St Mary & St Bodfan church. This is a renowned location for wonderful beaches, fishing, golf, walking, sailing, cycling, mountain biking and horse riding and has ready access to mountains, steam railways, slate quarries and a variety of historic castles. The traditional seaside town of Barmouth boasts an enormous sandy Blue Flag beach, perfect for families. A variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, combined with the mild climate, make this an ideal destination for a holiday, even out of season. This area is a paradise for walkers and climbers, with Mount Cader Idris nearby, the second highest mountain in Wales. An abundance of wildlife along the Mawddach Estuary, trout fishing in mountain lakes, Harlech Castle, St David's golf course and Portmeirion Italianate Village are just a handful of the many superb attractions within this beautiful area.
