Glasfor, meaning The Blue Sea in Welsh, stands in the quaint coastal hamlet of Llansantffraed, a mixture of old white-washed cottages and seaside homes looked over by the ancient parish church, just less than ½ mile down the lane from the village of Llanon. The owners, who live across the lane, have lovingly created a charming holiday cottage for you to enjoy. Glasfor is a detached, single-storey cottage with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The modern, country-style breakfast kitchen has plenty of room, and the separate spacious dual-aspect beamed living/dining room has patio doors leading out into the enclosed cottage garden, ideal for children or pets to play. There’s a cosy wood burner for you to cuddle up in front of, making the cottage ideal for winter breaks too! The separate snug gives you the space to sit back and relax whilst listening to music or reading a book.
A short stroll will bring you to the coast where you will have plenty of choice as there are beaches all along Cardigan Bay, and many which allow pets all year round too. The village of Llanon has a pub, fish and chip shop, convenience store and butcher, so you will be able to get all your day to day needs. Just 11 miles north will bring you to the Victorian and university seaside town of Aberystwyth, where you will find a promenade and pier. Take a trip on the longest electric cliff railway in the UK to the top of Constitution Hill and take in the most amazing views over coffee and cake. Or, why not catch a steam train on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to Devil’s Bridge and waterfall, travelling through verdant countryside along the way? Travel 5 miles south of Llanon where you can visit the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron. There’s a good selection of independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants and lots of events featured throughout the year. A little further along will bring you to New Quay, where the houses cling to the rocks above the bay and dolphins can often be seen. Ceredigion is full of inspiration for a holiday whether you want to take in the wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains or enjoy the sparkling beaches and pretty coves, or even walk along the 60 miles of coastal pathway. Beach 100 yards. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
