  • "We loved the house due to its location and view."

    The listing was accurate in terms of the decor - it does need quite a bit of updating. But because it was listed as such it did not concern us. The bathroom was clearly quite new and very well done. If the owners update the rest of the house to that standard then it will be lovely. The kitchen was okay, with everything required, but again needs updating. There were only two of us for this stay, and I would have thought this would be quite small for 6 people. If it were me I would punch through the two front bedrooms into one and have a large 'grand' bedroom with an amazing view. The smell of oil took some getting used to, but I guess that is normal for that kind of heating? There is plenty of parking - probably 3 or 4 cars in its own drive area, so no worries about that. The beach is a 30-second walk away and the pub is about 60 seconds (!). The pub has great food and is really worth a visit if you are not up for cooking. If you are a dog owner you can take your dog in. You are able to walk the coast paths north or south right from the house. All-in-all a relaxing stay, and exactly what we expected.

  • "Very disappointed."

    The property was dirty, appliances rusty and it needed a deep clean and tidying up. The outside of the property was full of weeds and overgrown so the BBQ was a right off. I can cope with peeling wallpaper and a bit tired looking but there is no excuse for dirtiness. It is not a 4* property and is a disgrace when you find hairs in the freezer and have to empty the shower trap full of hair and gunk to stop it overflowing. The only good thing about the place is the view.

  • "Location, location, location."

    What a veiw from Delyn Aur. We found the bungalow very well equipped with kitchen ware although the units could do with being replaced. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the beds made up with lovely clean fresh bedding. The bathroom was great, especially the shower, looks like a new bathroom. The main living room was a disappointment as it obviously needed decorating and if you don't like moths then don't book this place, although we didn't leave any windows open, we continually had a high moth count every evening but only in the living room, maybe they were breeding in the wood panel ceiling but 20 moths a night was not pleasant. I think it needs treatment. The rest of the house was fine. It was great to have a basket of goodies on the table and milk in the fridge, that was a very welcome touch. The seating area at the back could do with a tidy up, I felt that the property just needed a bit more TLC.

  • "Fantastic views."

    Couple of minutes stroll to a small quiet beach. So peaceful sitting on the terrace looking out to sea. Some comfortable outside seating would be a huge bonus. Bathroom has been refurbished and is lovely but the walk in shower does need a hand rail. The rest of the bungalow, as the stated in the spec, needs an update, although perfectly comfortable. We too were plagued with moths every evening in the living room despite keeping doors closed. Assume they are breeding in the wooden ceiling. The property does need a deep clean, as very dusty, which we discovered when moving furniture to get to the moths.Toaster needs replacing and a dishwasher would be a great addition.

  • "I was nearly put off because of poor old Vivien’s horror review."

    The reality was a bungalow, with huge amounts of parking, comfortable beds, plenty of storage space, ample facilities and a breathtaking view. It’s a lovely little place that is clearly being renovated. The odd bit of peeling wall paper is nothing to worry about, just sit on the patio and breathe in the sea air and you won’t care! There is a great pub just two minutes away, but the real star is the beach; which is clean, sandy and a great place to wave at the grandparents sitting outside the house!

  • "On arrival it was apparent that the property was in need of a makeover."

    Wallpaper was coming off in the hall and bedrooms. Floorboards very badly scuffed and in places loose. The beautiful new bathroom had black mould in the shower and the pedal bin was very grimy on top. The kitchen is very dated and in need of a deep clean. The oven was very dirty. Lots of chipped crockery and dirty spatula in the drawer. The central heating was very efficient. The settee still sported an ugly big stain (this was noted in a September review) no remedial action had been taken. We covered it with a throw so we could use it. The lounge curtains were ripped and about 40 years old by the pattern. On departure we stripped the double bed and discovered to our horror a badly stained mattress protector. At that point we ceased cleaning and departed. Not the standards we expect from a rental property. The location was perfect but the feeling of grubbiness never left us for the duration of our stay

  • "The location of the cottage is great, amazing!"

    The outside seating is great, with amazing views. The down side is the fabricate of the cottage is shabby and grubby. There was a big dirty stain on the settee, which looked like urine. I had to use a cover off one of the beds to go over it. The place was very damp and not good for someone with breathing issues. The wall paper was coming off the walls in places due to the damp and it all looked unclean. The bedding was old and not pleasant and the head board was covered in dry skin and hair from others. It is such a shame as the actual cottage is lovely and there are some really nice touches, for example the fire made up in the log burner and the use of a bbq.

  • "What a great location and lovely character bungalow with great views (including some lovely sunsets)."

    I will definitely be back! Yes, I agree with some comments that the kitchen perhaps needs a bit of an update and deep clean. However the new shower room is fantastic and the beds are all comfortable. Bedding and towels were all spotless, and there was a lovely, new outside dining set on the patio. Good amount of parking; lovely walks along the coast; great little local pub; and a good location to venture further if you can bear to tear yourself away from Tresaith. I would just add that the beach is supposed to be dog-free for some months but this seems to be largely ignored by locals and some visitors - unfortunately not everyone keeps their dogs under control or picks up after them. So if you are going there for a dog free beach holiday, this may not be the beach for you. However, on the whole it was a clean and quiet beach with a lovely waterfall.

  • "The location of Delyn Aur is stunning - sea views from the living room, kitchen and main bedroom, and a very short walk to be on the beautiful beach."

    It was also the perfect location to explore other beautiful surrounding areas. The house is fairly basic but that is reflected in the very reasonable price. No dishwasher so bear that in mind! Although it sleeps 6 I’d say it would be cramped with that many people, and there’s only one bathroom. It was perfect for 4 of us, two adults and 11 & 13 year olds. Took us a while to get the hang of the hot water - setting it on “twice” barely gave us one hot shower, heating is excellent and the house warms up very quickly when you put it on. Very responsive owner when we had a radiator glitch, although no toilet roll was ever delivered after arriving to virtually none! Overall a wonderful stay, we’d love to go back.

    House lovely and warm with central heating (we were there in February and during storm Eunice). House is well equiped and comfortable. It could do with a minor refurb.

    There were dust balls in one corner of the lounge and when I moved a cushion, to tidy it , I found sweet papers, a stone and lots of sand. The bedding, towels etc were of a high standard. This property is obviously a work in progress and will eventually be superb... just not yet.

  • "Had a lovely break at the cottage in October, great location for coastal walks and nearby pubs which you can walk to, cottage was lovely and warm with lovely views of the sea and plenty of room to park cars, it is equipped with everything you need, we slept with the windows open and it was lovely to go to sleep listening to the waves!"

    In the summer you would be able to have your breakfast outside on the terrace furniture looking at the lovely view. The only negatives were the bathroom which could do with a refresh, the bottom three inches of the shower curtain had horrible brown/black mould on and the silicon sealer around the bath had black mould as did the top corner of the bathroom where the window has obviously not ben opened after people had showered, toilet seat was very loose and moved every time you sat on it which was a bit annoying. Also we felt the property did not have that "freshly cleaned smell" on arrival and looking under the sofas there was dust and a few conkers so they had not been moved for a while, bed linen did not have that freshly washed and conditioned smell. We rent a lot of holiday properties from various companies around the UK and Europe and we always leave what we feel is constructive criticism feedback, we are not over fussy people but a lick of paint in the bathroom and a bit longer spent on cleaning would make the property more pleasant to stay at. We would stay at the property again because of its location and hope it might have had a lick of paint throughout to freshen the property up by then. When we were departing the property the two male cleaners arrived and we informed them of the issues in the bathroom, they said the owner of the property was staying in the property the following week and they would inform him of our comments Bryn and Gill Jones Stayed 3-10th of October 2020

  • "No towels for two people Heating system was run by diesel and gave off fumes !"

    would off been nice to have milk left for us as other Sykes cottages do more logs for woodburner would have been nice positive side the beds were very comfortable and ever thing clean

    In response to your feedback, we are so glad you found the beds comfortable as we replaced them at the beginning of February and hoped they would enable those staying to have a restful nights sleep. I'm sorry you were not left out any towels, this has been addressed with our changeover provider and will be made available for every booking. As for the boiler, it runs on domestic oil rather than diesel. We will look at improving ventilation from the cupboard to the outside. Milk and logs are difficult for us to provide as we do not live close by, therefore we do provide tea, coffee and sugar, but advise those staying, to bring fresh milk with them. We are looking into how we can make dry logs available, we hope to build a storage facility in the near future. They are usually available to buy at the garage shop though, which is 5 minutes drive. Thank you for your feedback, we are new owners of this property and we use any feedback to help make this lovely little property better for future bookings. We stay in the house with our 3 young daughters regularly and have a vested interest to make it as nice as possible. Onwards and upwards. Property Owner

The property

This detached single storey 'colonial-style' bungalow, built in the 1950s, provides an idyllic holiday location, being just a short distance from the Blue Flag Tresaith beach.

There is a range of facilities on offer, a café, shop, the Ship Inn and public toilets all within a stone’s throw of the beach and are requisites to be awarded a Blue Flag.

The beach has golden sand, a waterfall and is flanked by dramatic cliffs.

Children love exploring the rock pools exposed at low tide on either end of the beach.

Coastal walks lead you to more sandy beaches at Penbryn, Aberporth and Llangrannog. Cardigan Bay is famous for its resident bottlenose dolphins and you may be lucky enough to spot them from the beach at Tresaith or a little further up the coast at New Quay, where you can go on dolphin spotting boat trips and be rarely disappointed of a sighting.

About the location


Cardigan 8.5 miles.

Tresaith is a pretty, bustling seaside village sitting on the stunning Ceredigion coastline. Benefitting from a popular local pub and shop, it is just one of many gems dotted along the coast. Tresaith is equidistant from Aberporth and Llangrannog, both equally attractive bays, and worth a walk along the extensive coastal path that stretches away in both directions. Tresaith offers the opportunity to see an abundance of flora and fauna, and to glimpse some of Ceredigion Bay’s resident dolphins and grey seals. The popular town of Cardigan is a few miles away, and there is plenty of beautiful countryside and coastline to explore. A perfect location to while away a few days of relaxation.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
