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.

Staying at Nant y Bwthyn gives you easy access to one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere in the UK, whether you want to walk the miles of spectacular and varied coastal paths or visit the delightful small seaside towns and villages, such as New Quay, Aberaeron and Aberdovey.

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!
