Find cottages in Aberaeron

The pretty Regency town of Aberaeron is renowned for its brightly painted Georgian houses, which overlook the attractive harbour. Located on the heritage coast of Cardigan Bay, the town is surrounded by unspoilt sandy beaches, spectacular coastal walks and has plenty of opportunities for some great wildlife watching.

Aberaeron has a rich maritime heritage and is surrounded by some lovely coastal and country walks, which pass through notable landmarks and by historic buildings. In town there are many independent shops, a craft centre and art gallery.

The headland overlooks the sandy beach of Mwnt, which is a National Trust Blue Flag beach. On the headland sits the tiny Church of the Holy Cross, which stands on the site of an ancient Celtic church dating back to around 1400.

The stone walled harbour is the perfect place to enjoy a stroll. Sample freshly caught fish at one of the restaurants, or treat the kids to some homemade honey ice cream at The Hive bar and grill. Plan your visit in July, and you can enjoy some fantastic local seafood at the Cardigan Bay seafood festival on the quayside.

There’s plenty in the town to entertain younger visitors. The family golf course includes pitch and putt and the Fantasy Farm Park is close by, with farm animals and pets to feed and both outdoor and indoor play areas. There is also a small aquarium where children can learn more about the rich marine life of Cardigan Bay.

For days out along the coast New Quay and Cardigan lay to the south and Aberystwyth is to the north.

For a holiday on the stunning heritage coastline of West Wales, visit holiday cottages in Aberaeron today.

    Beudy Llyswen has been converted from the cowshed and barn, (Beudy means cowshed in Welsh), and is now a well appointed holiday home, close to the owner’s home. It is situated in a tranquil location with a rural feel, but only 10 minutes’ walk to the centre of Aberaeron, with its picturesque harbour, often referred to as the jewel in Ceredigion’s crown. This is a haven for wild flowers and wildlife with 5 acres of hay meadows where guests can walk freely; there is even a tennis court so bring your rackets. Direct access over a footbridge will bring you onto the path and cycle track leading to the National Trust Llanerchaeron Estate, an elegant Georgian villa designed by John Nash, set in the wooded Aeron valley. From the conservatory you can relax with a coffee and enjoy the lovely view and you may see many of the frequent visitors including ducks, pheasants, grey wagtails, marsh tits and majestic red kites overhead. You can also see dippers on the river, where, if fishing is your hobby, the owners have two rod licences to fish on their own stretch. To the rear of the property there is patio and lawned garden to enjoy, with direct access from the French doors leading from the dining room. Inside the cottage is comfortably furnished and both bedrooms offer en-suite facilities.

Aberaeron hosts a series of events during the season, Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs, the Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival, Aberaeron Regatta, Beer & Wine Festival, Tug of War across the harbour, Rugby 7’s, Carnival and a Mackerel Festival.
