  • "The mattress was very soft and a little uncomfortable but apart from that the cabin has great facilities and is perfect for a holiday and the location is great."

    The beach is only a short walk away and the bay has great facilities and the food and Ice cream shops are excellent, It's our second time visiting and we would definitely visit again. Contact with the owners and site is first class. We had a great time and would highly recommend to anyone.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Clarach Bay."

    However, the cleaning of the Cabin on arrival was very poor and I felt the need to clean it on arrival myself. We found several smelly socks around from the previous guests and the crockery and cutlery was all dirty, so i had to clean it all. It wasn't the most relaxing start to my holiday. The cleaners had opened the windows and popped fans on for our arrival, which was nice as it was a very hot day. The cabin looks much bigger in the pictures but it was ok for us. We had an issue with the door on the childs bedroom but the owners were quick to sort this. The facilities on the site were nice and staff very friendly. There were lots of lovely days out nearby, we enjoyed the railway to devils bridge to see the waterfalls. We also went on a boat trip to see dolphins, but unfortunately we didnt spot any. It was still a nice ride though. The coastal walk to Aberystwyth was pretty too and the cliff top railway. Sophies cafe had lovely lunches and the Seafront Palace Chinese was lovely for a takeaway. All in all, apart from the cleaning being poor, and the double bed being springy, we enjoyed our stay and the owners were friendly and helpful. The children loved their holiday and were sad to come home.

    We were very sorry to read this feedback and can only apologise. We weren't aware of these issues until you had left and would have tried to resolve them if we had known. We have since spoken to the cleaner as we want the highest standard of cleanliness for our guests. Kind regards, Teresa and Henry Property Owner

  • "Absolutely lovely chalet which is positioned above the rest of the holiday village giving a view to the sea."

    It was very quiet which is what we wanted. The cabin looks bigger on the pictures however it was still plenty for a weekwnd away. My husband is 6ft2 and was comfortable. We decided he had the back room as the bed isnt a true double, which can be expected in a cabin, and I took the sofa, which turns into a pull out bed. The cabin is well equiped and the cosy electric fire really warmed the cabin up very quickly. The bath is about the length of an arm and we didnt feel the need to bathe, however for other people its probably good to know its not one you can lay down in. Loved the decor and the 3 wifi was as good as at home, where we have broadband. Communication with the Cabin owners was brilliant, they even had the cleaner warm the olaxe up for our arrival, which was very kind. The staff on site were lovely, even opening up the shop for my husband. This was our first stay here and it was romantic and lovely for our anniversary. Our dog, Scruffy came with us, and there was enough room for her bed and bowls without getting in the way, and shes a large Mioritic Shepherd. Very nice stay, and well definitely book again.

  • "The cabin was nice and the site was nice but the facilities that were there, did not operate successfully."

    On checking in at Reception we were told the Showboat did take away and deliveries and Sunday Lunch. We rang on the Saturday to book for Sunday and were told they would not be doing them. Also wanted a Delivery during the week but were told they may be too busy and that the kitchen was closed for maintenance. None of this was advertised or advised on beforehand. Also if shops were not busy, they would shut before the closing times.

    The interior exceeded our expectations and had everything we needed for our short break. Soft furnishings were like everything very clean. Bedding was spotless and including duvets and pillows. Lots of choice to keep children busy and safe on site, again all v clean and tidy. Good beach with lifeguards in attendance. Would visit again and recommend to friends.

The property

Nestled at Clarach Bay near the thriving town of Aberystwyth is this cosy log cabin with stunning, panoramic vistas engulfing the area.

Walk up a few steps and into the property from the front where you will be welcomed into a homely, neutrally styled open-plan living room with comfortable seating for you to fully relax into your well-deserved holiday.

At the dining table you can enjoy a card game after dinner or socialise over a delicious meal.

A galley-style kitchen awaits you just off from the main interior space, neatly packed, yet just what you need by means of cooking essentials.

The family bathroom rests at the end of the kitchen hosting a nautical theme which coincides with the name of this idyllic little retreat in Mid Wales.

The bedrooms are of a simple design yet offer comfy beds in which to enjoy a peaceful nights' sleep.

Outside, the small veranda enjoys far reaching picturesque views out across the bay and over the Irish Sea to the horizon, the cool waters glisten in the summer sunshine and draw in a whispering coastal breeze.

Sit out with a nice glass of wine and watch the world go by from this elevated position.

A five minute walk away is the delightful sandy shores of Clarach Bay and the on-site facilities are to be used at your leisure.

Head into Aberystwyth, whether you enjoy a delightful stroll along the Ceredigion Coast Path or drive in for the day, this vibrant town offers much to see and do for the whole family.

Take a trip on the steam railway to Devil's Bridge or delight in the array of tea rooms, pubs and shops, the old ruins of the castle grounds are an idyllic 13th century landmark from which to behold panoramic views of the shoreline.

Enjoy this lovely little hideaway in a wonderful area of Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

A trip on the steam railway from Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge is a great way to visit the falls. The seaside resort of Borth is just 7 miles away, with its 3 miles of sandy beach and an Animalarium to keep all ages amused. With the ruins of Aberystwyth Castle close by, welsh craft centers and stunning countryside to explore, this is a perfect base for a well-deserved break
