This beautifully renovated seaside retreat sits on one of Ceredigion’s longest sandy beaches, on the stunning sweep of Cardigan Bay. Step straight onto the pebbles and down to the sand from the deck area, or sit and take in the panorama of sea and sky with glorious sunsets and seabirds and, if you are lucky, dolphins jumping among the waves. Choose your level, on the deck or on one of the two breathtaking balconies with sea views.
Right in the heart of the ancient fishing village of Borth, local amenities such as cafés, pubs, food shops, local art and vintage clothing shops, and even a boutique cinema, are all on your doorstep. This is a great location for water sports, walking and wildlife enthusiasts, with the enormous Dyfi National Nature Reserve protecting its wading birds, wildfowl, ospreys and red kites. Get up close to meerkats, monkeys and many other exotic creatures at Borth Wild Animal Kingdom, with a butterfly sanctuary and pony trekking centre just a short drive away in the Rheidol Valley. Borth Golf Club welcomes visitors, should you fancy a round or two. Train lovers may take the narrow gauge Vale of Rheidol steam train on a scenic journey up to the famous Devil’s Bridge, with its gorge walk across the ravine featuring wild waterfalls and lush vegetation.
The historic seaside town of Aberystwyth is easily accessible by road, bus, rail, or about 5 miles along the stunning coastal path from Borth. From the Victorian promenade and pier, to the play area in the ruined castle, the Arts Centre and National Library of Wales, there is something for everyone, not to mention many wonderful restaurants and shops. The UK’s longest funicular railway, dating back to the Victorian era, takes you to the summit of Constitution Hill and offers the most magnificent view over Cardigan Bay.
This coastline has many picturesque seaside towns and villages. Visit New Quay, Aberaeron and Aberdovey with their myriad of visitor attractions and activities, or head for the Centre for Alternative Technology, Cader Idris in the Snowdonia National Park and the fantasy village of Portmeirion. Situated on the seafront. Shops, cafes and restaurants 200 yards, pubs 100 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!
