  • "This accommodation is basic but fun."

    It is just across the road from the River Teifi and you can walk along the shore for a few miles, excellent if you have a dog. It's clean but has seen better days. Everything works though and is perfectly adequate. We had trouble with the TV upon arrival. I contacted Sykes and we were lent another TV for a day and then a brand new one was delivered and connected. I was most impressed. The sun lounge is divine, looking out across the river. Great for bird watching or just admiring the view and changing scenery with the tides.

The property

This Victorian railway carriage is just yards from Patch Beach at Gwbert on Sea in Ceredigion.

It provides no frills, simple accommodation in a superb location, which is perfect for a family holiday, being just a stone’s throw from the beach and local boat club.

You can even take a dolphin watching trip from the beach.

You can walk to two hotels, both serving non-residents, or enjoy a spa day at the Cliff Hotel for a treat.

The market town of Cardigan is about 2 miles away and has a beautifully restored Georgian house within the original castle walls.

Cardigan also offers a good selection of individual and high street shops, as well as a cinema/theatre and several pubs and eateries.

Poppit Sands, Mwnt Beach, Aberporth and Tresaith are all within easy reach.
