  • "Although at first I was disappointed at the location (close proximity to the road etc) but it was all fine."

    The cottage itself was very clean and very well equipped. White bedding and towels added to the comfort as they were spotless. In a very convenient distance to Aberystwyth, which was quite useful on few occasions. Drivable distance to lovely beeches managed by National Trust: Penbryn and Mwnt near Cardigan. Good walking paths near Mwnt as well. Spend good few hours in an absolutely stunning Dinefwr Park with a nice small walk to the castle on the top with beautiful views. Magic of Life Butterfly House was a unique experience, which was voted as the top attraction by the kids. Vale of Rheidol Railway is also worth a try, give yourself some time to be able to explore Devil's Bridge. Aberaeron is a charming place to have a walk around and grab some delicious food. The beech near the house is not very attractive as covered in stones and on the caravan park site but good enough for an evening walk . Overall we had lovely time and really enjoyed the cottage.

  • "Lovely week in this comfortable cottage."

    Good position to visit places such as Aberystwyth and Aberaeron, beach is a walk away. Not brilliant beach for access with small car park and lots of pebbles to cross, but once on the beach it was great. Village is lovely and everyone was very friendly. Cafe by bridge was fantastic, very good pizzas.

The property

The cottage is set back from the A487, between Aberaeron and the University town of Aberystwyth, on the Cardigan Bay coastline.

Within about a 15 minutes’ walk (3/4 of a mile) there are two beaches and access to the All Wales coastal path on this stretch of Cardigan Bay.

Llanrhystud is a pretty village with a post office/shop, small supermarket, church and The Black Lion, which serves food.

An open air market is held in the village each Tuesday.

This cottage is a perfect base for exploring Cardiganshire (Ceredigion).

There are many interesting towns and places, such as Aberaeron, Aberystwyth, Lampeter, Tregaron and Devil's Bridge within a half hour drive, providing a whole array of things to see and do. There is a golf course about a mile away with a restaurant and bar open to the public all year.

About the location


Aberaeron 7 miles; Aberystwyth 9 miles.

Llanrhystud is a charming village in Mid-Wales on the west coast, with three rivers, Carrog, Wyre and Wyre Fach, all meeting to flow into the sea through this quaint settlement. The area surrounding the Grade II listed church, St Rhystud's Church, is now a conservation area, with the village enjoying beautiful rural views as well as a shingle beach. Llanrhystud beach is great for swimming and general watersports, whilst holding views over the lovely Cardigan Bay. Pick up all you need from the local convenience store and garage, or head to the pub which serves classic dishes when you don't feel like cooking. An 18-hole golf course can be enjoyed on a pleasant day, while riding schools and a farm park are not far away and are great for entertaining the little ones. The Wales Coastal Path runs through the village and presents a fantastic way to experience the rugged coastline of Wales, enjoying pitstops at other coastal villages along the way, such as Aberaeron, a delightful Georgian fishing town which still retains its character and charm, head to the harbour and take a boat trip to see the glorious landscape from the coast and discover Cardigan Bay's marine life before sitting down in one of the several eateries.

Note: Please bring own beach towels.
Note: No parking in the garage, storage only.
