Corlan, meaning gathering place, is aptly named, as the house provides all the space for a group of friends, or families enjoying a holiday together. This large detached house is set within the village of Llanfarian, just 2½ miles south of the university and seaside town of Aberyswyth. The open plan L-shaped living space is a wonderful area to gather with everyone at night. The separate games room, with darts and a mini pool table, is a great place for both young and old. There’s a ground floor bedroom and shower room, and as there are no steps to the property, this may be ideal for anyone who is less mobile. Upstairs there’s a master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and separate family bathroom. The large outdoor hot tub will be a welcome place to relax after a busy day exploring the area, towels not included.
The seaside town of Aberystwyth is less than 3 miles away, and here you will find an array of shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as the pier and promenade. To the north end of the sea front, you will see the Victorian Cliff Railway taking passengers on the stately journey to the summit of Constitution Hill, where you can see the Camera Obscura, or sit and have a coffee whilst taking in the magnificent views of Cardigan Bay stretched out in front of you. Being a university town, there’s a very good arts centre and theatre, and the National Library of Wales offers free guided tours. The steam railway departs from the town and goes through stunning countryside to Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls and is well worth a visit. If its beaches you’re after, then the area has a stunning selection. At the northern end of the superb Aberystwyth beach, is the impressive sand dune system of the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve and visitor centre at Borth, which juts out halfway across the mouth of the Dovey Estuary. Visit Ynys-Hir, the RSPB wildlife haven and the Dyfi Osprey Project.
The fascinating Borth Submerged Forest is most of the time hidden by sand and the sea, but occasionally rough seas scour the sand away, and you see the forest at low tide along the beach, where stumps of oak, pine, birch, willow and hazel, which have been preserved by the acid anaerobic conditions in the peat, can be seen. Radiocarbon dating suggests these trees died about 1500 BC.
Families will enjoy a day out at the Silver Mountain Experience lead mines, just 15 minutes east of Aberystwyth. Walkers and cyclists will appreciate the myriad of opportunities. Join the cycle path at the end of the road that goes to nearby Tanybwlch beach in one direction, or all the way to the old drovers town of Tregaron, 15 miles away. A nearby footpath will lead you to a children’s play area in the village. Immerse yourself in this thriving region of west Wales and make Corlan your base for a lovely holiday full of memories. Beach 2½ miles. Shop 530 yards, pub 2½ miles.
