With stunning views directly over the beach and harbour, Sailhouse Loft is a contemporary apartment in the delightful west Wales resort of New Quay. The apartment is located on the third floor with panoramic view across Cardigan Bay. While sitting in the dining area enjoying your breakfast or morning coffee, you might just spot the bottlenose dolphins; regularly seen swimming and diving as they follow the shoals of mackerel into the bay. There are boat trips available from the harbour to explore the Marine Heritage Coast and spot the dolphins even in the winter time, weather permitting.
Sailhouse Loft boasts two bedrooms and an open plan living space thoughtfully furnished to provide everything you need for a holiday. In times gone by, the secluded coves around New Quay provided ideal hiding places for smugglers, but today you can stroll along the sandy beaches that extend in a golden arc around the bay.
New Quay hosts many events throughout the year including the annual Cardigan Bay Regatta, with sailing and dinghy competitions, as well as inshore swimming and rowing events, a three day Music Festival and even a New Years Day swim.
New Quay has a strong link with writer and poet Dylan Thomas, who lived in the area in the 1940’s. New Quay is often cited as inspiration for the fictitious village of Llareggub, the setting in his most famous work, Under Milk Wood. The 2008 feature film The Edge of Love about Dylan Thomas’s life, was filmed locally and included stars Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller and Matthew Rhys as Dylan Thomas. You can take the Dylan Thomas walking trail around the town.
If you like sailing and other water sports you’re in for a treat. Visit the Cardigan Bay Water Sports Centre, which offers various water-based activities like dinghy sailing, power boating and windsurfing. Fishing is another popular pastime, with the chance to catch sea bass, crab and lobster.
New Quay has an excellent choice of places to eat and drink, from pub grub to international cuisine, and of course, no day would be complete without sitting on the harbour wall enjoying an ice cream. There is so much to see and do in the area, why not visit the pretty Georgian town of Aberaeron. The quaint resorts of Aberporth and Llangrannog, and the ancient town of Cardigan to the south and the Victorian resort of Aberystwyth to the north are all within an easy drive. Beach 40 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
