Nant y Bwthyn (Stream Cottage) is a characterful, 19th-century detached cottage in Dol-y-Bont, a peaceful village 1¼ miles from the beaches at Borth and Ynyslas, and just 5 miles from the seaside resort and university town of Aberystwyth. The cottage has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished to provide holiday accommodation that exudes charm, along with all the modern touches you will need. The original beams, inglenook fireplace and wood burner in the living room give a lovely cosy appeal, perfect for relaxing in front of on those chillier evenings. Patio doors lead directly to the private garden and summerhouse with table and chairs. There are two first floor bedrooms, plus a ground floor shower room and first floor bathroom.
If you love beaches, then be prepared to be wowed by Borth, Ynyslas and the nature reserve. Apart from the huge expanse of golden sands, there are four walking trails around the reserve and the dunes are remarkable, providing a home for many rare plants and insects. The phenomenon of the submerged forest, the remains of tree trunks, appear at low tide. Dovey Estuary is home to many wading birds, including the colourful shelduck with its bright green head. In spring and early summer, plovers lay their eggs directly on the sand. When you look out to sea, you may see dolphins and porpoise too. Whilst in Borth, why not visit the Animalarium, a rapidly expanding zoo, dedicated to conservation with endangered animals and birds?
Aberystwyth is famous for its promenade and the UK’s longest electric cliff railway dating back to the Victorian era. Take a trip up to the top of Constitution Hill, have coffee and cake and take in the most breathtaking views out across Cardigan Bay. You can even see Mount Snowdon on a clear day! The town offers a wide choice of shopping and places to eat, and you can also catch the Vale of Rheidol steam railway from here and take a very scenic ride to Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls, well worth a day out.
