    “The accommodation was good, comfortable, warm and the location couldn't have been better for exploring the west coast of Wales.”

    The beautiful Mwnt with its resident choughs was only 15 minutes drive away and Cardigan with all its facilities also a short drive. Spectacular walks and scenery only a short drive away. First time in this area and will visit again for further exploration. ...

    The beautiful Mwnt with its resident choughs was only 15 minutes drive away and Cardigan with all its facilities also a short drive. Spectacular walks and scenery only a short drive away. First time in this area and will visit again for further exploration. The description describes the property as having a private garden and dog friendly. Yes, it is dog friendly but please be aware that the small garden is not private or fenced in and is in fact a walk through for the other properties to access the communal parking. If it is important for future customers to have a secure or private garden for use by children or dogs then they would be disappointed. Plenty of space just outside property to walk dogs. We initially had a bit of concern when we saw the coin meter for electric as this wasnt mentioned! However, it became apparent that the coin meter was disabled and power was indeed included in rent. It might be a good idea to put a notice on the meter to make it clear that no need to 'feed' the meter. The accommodation was well kept, clean and tidy. The shower is now very efficient. The toilet cistern does, however, get stuck and the buttons on the top dont release properly allowing water to continually run into the bowl. The buttons need to be jiggled to reset the mechanism inside the cistern to allow it to refill. Once we got the knack the toilet operated effectively. The above didnt detract from our experience but the garden situation does need to be better explained.

The property

Aberporth 1.2 miles.

A wonderful semi-detached cottage on the end of a lovely complex of holiday cottages.

With a wonderful open-plan living arrangement, this coastal cottage near the town of Aberporth is in a great location for a family looking to explore the North Wales coast and beyond.

There are two bedrooms within the property, a king-size double and a twin, both featuring stunning skylights for you to capture a glimpse of the beauty of the landscapes of Wales.

The open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting area is the hub of the house, perfect for spending time as a family while you open up the patio doors and let the coastal breeze flow through the property.

With an easy access downstairs bathroom right next to the entrance of the cottage, it's the perfect place to hose down the dogs after a day of sea splashing and sun soaking.

Outside is an enclosed space, safe for both the pets and the kids, where you can watch over them form the window; you can also curl up on the sofa and enjoy a DVD from the wide selection offered in the sitting area.

The local area is remote and relaxing, but you can walk into the main coastal village of Aberporth to be greeted by a selection of eateries and places to grab a drink, as well as being just a short walk away from Aberporth Beach and bay, where you can take a boat trip to watch dolphins swim amongst the waves.

If you don't fancy a boat trip, be sure to check out the Leaping Dolphin statue and rummage through the rock pools to uncover wonderful wildlife.

The area boasts an array of fantastic walking trails, including the Ceredigion Coast Path, leading to the sheltered sandy coves of Mwnt Beach, perfect for paddling and soaking up the Welsh sun.

Located close to the West Wales airport, this property is in a brilliant location for avid aircraft spotters, as well as being close to the Welsh Wildlife Centre; there's lots to explore, no matter your hobbies or interests!

Blackthorn Cottage is a wonderful family cottage to return to after a day at the beach enjoying the best of the North Wales coast.

About the location


Tresaith 1 mile; Penbryn 3 miles; Llangrannog 5.5 miles; Cardigan 7 miles; Poppit Sands 8.5 miles; New Quay 15 miles.

Aberporth is a small town that sits on the southern edge of Cardigan Bay in Ceredigion, renowned for it's fabulous beaches that attract visitors, all year round. There are two beaches that sit between the rocky headlands of Trecregyn and Fathgarreg, separated by a smaller rocky outcrop. Uniquely, at low tide they interlink, but at high tide, they create individual beaches and create great rock pools for the children to play in and explore. Small boats, canoes, and kayaks can easily be launched from the north beach, while the south beach lends itself beautifully for a spot of sunbathing. Close to the beaches, there is a small seaside café, fish and chip shop, and a friendly pub serving good food and drinks. In the village itself, there is a range of shops and takeaway stores. Nestled directly on the famous Wales Coast Path, between the towns of Cardigan in the south, and Llangrannog and New Quay to the north, it is a great base for exploring this glorious stretch of coastline. Venture to Cardigan and discover the town’s many shops, tea rooms, restaurants, pubs, and bustling markets. Visit the nearby themed farm park, spot dolphins from the coastal path, or take a boat trip for the chance to see them up close! Aberporth is a great base for exploring this wonderful part of West Wales, with something to do for all the family.
