Seadrift is so aptly named as it sits overlooking the sea in the pretty town of New Quay. One of a row of terraced cottages built in 1836 for the local fishermen, Seadrift is now comfortable holiday accommodation for up to six people. On the ground floor as you enter the cottage you will find a double bedroom and the family bathroom with bath and shower over. The original old stone staircase leads you down to the lower ground floor and into the characterful living and dining room and through to the well equipped kitchen. The living room has original beams and a wonderful wood burner for cosy nights by the fire, French doors take you out on to the patio where there are two terraces on different levels overlooking the sea. Whether you sit inside or out, you will be mesmerised just watching the ever changing seascape and maybe see some dolphins! Upstairs there are two further bedrooms; a double room with a sea view and a room with bunk beds suitable for children.
Just a short stroll will bring you into New Quay itself, a quaint town and the inspiration for Dylan Thomas’s writing when he lived here. You can follow in his footsteps on a marked trail around the higgledy piggledy town. There are independent shops and a good selection of restaurants, pubs and café’s as well as the obligatory seaside fish and chip shops. Take your fish and chips or an ice cream down to the harbour wall and watch the fishing boats in the bay or take a dolphin watching trip to get closer to the resident pods of bottlenose dolphins. From the sea you will appreciate how New Quay clings to the rocks and you see the three resplendent town beaches, all with soft sand. You can take your dogs on two of the beaches all year round and it’s not just your pets that will have a great time; fishing and watersports enthusiasts will love it here too!
If you can tear yourself away from New Quay there are plenty of other options for exploring, including 60 miles of coastline and the coastal path. There are secluded coves at Cwmtydu where seals come to have their pups in the autumn, and at Llangrannog you can enjoy the view from two coastal pubs. New Quay Honey Farm and tea rooms are worth a visit and the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron is a 10-minute drive. Just outside Aberaeron you’ll find the National Trust property of Llanerchaeron. The coastal towns of Aberystwyth and Cardigan are also within very easy reach or venture inland to the market towns of Lampeter, Tregaron and Newcastle Emlyn.
Come for a short break or come for a longer holiday and enjoy this area and make Seadrift your home. Beach 175 yards. Shop 175 yards, pub and restaurant 130 yards.

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!
