Description

Brynhoreb is a delightful, cosy cottage in a tranquil rural setting and yet only three miles from Aberystwyth and the wonderful coastline of Ceredigion. The garden raised up behind the cottage takes full advantage of the stunning vista. Whether you are sitting in the comfortable summer house, on the decked terrace created to look like a pirate ship, or relaxing in the bubbling hot tub, you can glimpse the sea across the rolling countryside. There is even an information pack provided in the cottage, perfect for those wanting to explore the surrounding area.

Apart from its sweeping promenade and pier, Aberystwyth has the famous Constitution Hill, the Victorian equivalent of a modern day theme park, rising dramatically from the sea, providing spectacular and uninterrupted views of the town, Cardigan Bay, and on a clear day, 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales. This majestic panorama can be reached by train on the longest funicular electric cliff railway in Britain, which has been transporting visitors to the summit since opening in 1896. Aberystwyth is also the starting point for the Vale of Rheidol steam railway to Devils Bridge and a huge tumbling waterfall and gorge; a scenic journey well worth taking. Aberystwyth is much more than a seaside town. It is surrounded on three sides by some of the most glorious countryside in the UK. Apart from the wonderful Ceredigion Heritage Coast, there are the mountains of Pumlumon to the north-east, where the sources of both the Severn and the Wye are to be found. Pumlumon is part of the Cambrian Mountain Range, the last refuge of the Red Kite in Britain, until a few years ago when a management and protection scheme was started. Now you will frequently see them soaring above the hills and hear their distinctive cry. The visitor attraction of the Red Kite Feeding Station is just nine miles away, close to the Silver Mountain Mining Experience, another great attraction for families.

Other interesting places to visit in the area and within easy reach from Brynhoreb is the impressive sand dune system of the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve, which jut out halfway across the mouth of the Dovey Estuary; the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron and the pretty resort of New Quay that once inspired poet Dylan Thomas, and where Bottlenose dolphins can often been seen from the harbour. The whole area is a haven for walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts and lovers of golden sandy beaches, many of them dog friendly year round. Brynhoreb is the perfect base to discover what a Welsh gem Ceredigion is – you will certainly want to return once you’ve been!

About the local area

One of the most rural counties in Wales, overlooking Cardigan Bay, Ceredigion offers unspoilt countryside and uncrowded beaches. Much of the coastline is designated as a `heritage coast', and is one of Britain's most diverse areas for marine wildlife.

The coast is home to a resident pod of some 130 bottlenose dolphins as well as porpoises and grey seals. Eco-friendly boat trips to fully experience the coastline and its wildlife run frequently in the summer months from New Quay and Aberaeron. Hidden coves and sandy beaches also allow you to escape from the crowds.

Inland the countryside is a green vastness of hills and valleys dotted with small villages and market towns. There are several nature reserves, home to rare species of flora and fauna. Explore these on one of the many walking trails across the county and for the more adventurous; there is an awesome 35 km mountain biking trail in Nant Bwlch yr Arian high in the Cambrian Mountains. And afterwards, treat yourself to an award wining honey ice cream from Aberaeron!
