Situated within over 5½-acres, and adjoining the owner’s home, Five Acres Cottage has been lovingly created to make a delightful and stylish 2 bedroom (both en-suite), holiday cottage. Approached down a long private driveway, the former smallholding now grazes cattle and sheep on the land at certain times, but guests are free to roam across the land when the animals are not grazing. The owner’s home dates back to the late 19th-century, but the holiday cottage is a later addition to the property. Outside there is a covered porch with seating and guests also have exclusive use of a garden area with table and chairs across the driveway, perfect for enjoying the lovely views or eating al fresco and watching the variety of birds that can be seen, including red kites and buzzards.
The setting is perfect for making the most of both coast and countryside, with the superb scenery of Cardigan Bay and the whole of Ceredigion within easy reach. A little over 7 miles will bring you to the attractive Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, where the colourful painted houses look so pretty around the harbour, and there is an array of chic shops, cafés and restaurants to enjoy. Just a few minutes’ drive further down the coast will bring you to the quaint, seaside resort of New Quay, where the houses cling to the rocks, and the long harbour wall is the perfect place to spot the frequent visitors of bottlenose dolphins. There are interesting towns and villages scattered across the whole area, all with their own unique cultural identity. Ceredigion is perfect for a weekend break or a longer stay with beautiful beaches, sandy coves, sea cliffs, caves and wonderful wildlife, spectacular sunsets and starry dark skies. Beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.

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!
