Aberystwyth

Sitting resplendent on the Ceredigion coast is the historic town of Aberystwyth; with a long sandy beach and rows of colourful Victorian and Edwardian houses that face out seawards over a wide, winding promenade and ample beach; just the ideal place for relaxing seaside strolls.

If you want to take in some of Aberystwyth’s many sights and landmarks, then you can see most of them from the 2000 metre long promenade; relax by the bandstand where in the summer they hold live music events. Or hop onto the cliff railway, the longest electric cliff railway in Britain, to the summit of Constitution Hill and marvel at not only the view of the sweeping North Beach, but also visit the Victorian Camera Obscura that is housed here.

From Aberystwyth Pier take in the sights of the beautiful Cardigan Bay, treat yourself in the ice cream parlour or indeed dance the night away in the pier’s nightclub.

Explore Aberystwyth of old with a trip to the ruins of the thirteenth century Aberystwyth Castle; the inner and middle walls remain in part and a ramble around the ruins gives you a feel of the great castle that once stood proud on these grounds. There are also picnic areas, playgrounds and a crazy golf course.

Aberystwyth is famously a university town and also houses the National Library of Wales, which is home to large collections of books and archives as well as exhibitions and galleries for visitors to explore. As well as taking in art in the National Library exhibitions, you can explore what the Ceredigion Museum, Aberystwyth Arts Centre and the School of Art have to offer.

With many walks both in and around town, as well as plenty of places to shop and eat and drink and a wealth of natural beauty, Aberystwyth is the perfect place for a holiday by the sea; search for cottages in Aberystwyth today.

    Trafford House is a stunning detached property, one of five individual, architect-designed executive homes built by the current owner and situated within the historic Trawsgoed Estate, where Trawsgoed Mansion sits. Trawscoed (Welsh for Crosswood) Estate and Mansion, located about 8 miles east of Aberystwyth, has been in the ownership of the Vaughan family since 1200 and has a fascinating history. In has been the family seat of the Earls of Lisburn for many generations, and in the late 19th century was thought to be the largest estate in Wales. Edward VII, Edward VIII, Winston Churchill, Stanley Baldwin and William Gladstone are all recorded as having visited the Estate.
    Trafford House sits on a sizeable plot with a large private garden, and there’s ample parking so families and friends can meet up together. The house has been luxuriously appointed and features a state of the art efficient ’tri-heating’ system. The spacious living room centres around a feature fireplace with wood burner, and to the other end there is a pool table. The kitchen/dining room is equally sociable, with a large central island with bar stools and bespoke built in seating. Here you will appreciate the luxurious finish of the marble floor, granite worktops and very high quality appliances, including a steam oven, eye level dishwasher, induction hob, instant boiling water on tap for hot drinks and an American fridge/freezer with ice dispenser. Huge bi-fold doors bring the outside in, and a large granite topped table on the patio is perfect for al fresco dining. The bedrooms are equally spacious and well appointed, and the bathrooms have been luxuriously fitted too.
    The Estate shares a border along the River Ystwyth (fishing available) and the beautiful Hafod Estate, fantastic for walking. From the house you have direct access to a cycle path, part of the Sustrans Ystwyth Trail, which connects to Aberystwyth, on the shore of Ceredigion’s Bay, with Tregaron in the northern Teifi Valley. Substantial sections of the Ystwyth Trail follow the track of the old Great Western railway line. All of the Ystwyth Trail is suitable for walkers and offers access to circular walks around Trawsgoed, and several level sections are suitable for less mobile people or those with disabilities. Aberystwyth to Llanfarian, for instance, is almost all on a tarmac surface. Just north of Tregaron, 12 miles, a circular route across the stunning Cors Caron National Nature Reserve offers accessible walking via level boardwalks to the bird hide.
    Visit the mines at the Silver Mountain Experience, 12 miles, an adventure day out with the Black Chasm experience and the fascinating Time Lab. Devil’s Bridge Falls, 8 miles, is a world famous tourist attraction where the unique waterfalls and trails provide a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge. You can travel by steam train between Aberystwyth and Devil’s Bridge, and appreciate the scenery without being too strenuous. The seaside resort of Aberystwyth has lots of shops, cafés and restaurants, but also has a pier and promenade, and boasts the longest electric cliff railway in Britain. Take a trip to the summit and enjoy a coffee and cake whilst taking in the breathtaking views across Cardigan Bay. There are over 60 miles of coastline, lovely beaches (many dog friendly all year round), coves and seaside towns to enjoy.
    Tregaron, 12 miles, was once a strategic point for drovers taking their animals to markets in England, and is a quiet market town at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains, with an award-winning inn and restaurant that is well worth a visit. Whilst you are here, why not pop into the Welsh Gold Centre, which sells Celtic inspired designs. If you can drag yourselves away from lovely Trafford House, you will find so much to discover in ...

    Ref: UKC902

    Tyllwyd, so named after the grey stone used to build this Victorian, detached farmhouse, is wonderfully situated within 80-acres of farmland, which takes full advantage of the glorious hillside views of the Rheidol Valley or “Cwm Rheidol”. The farm now only grazes cattle and sheep, along with hay and silage crops taken from the fields throughout the summer. There is record of a Tyllwyd at this location dating back to 1716 and it may have been part of the Abertrinant Estate at this time. Most of the estate was sold in 1830 and the census from 1841 and 1851 show farmers with their families living at Tyllwyd along with their servants. A later census records lead miners and farm labourer’s residing at Tyllwyd. Only one other building survives from this period and this was the milking parlour, until 2003. The extent of the farm and the house today were probably established in the late 19th Century and was built with servants’ quarters that are now the bathroom and utility room. Servants continued to be employed at the farm and maybe as late as the 1940s. A dairy herd was established with 70 cows and the milking parlour was installed in one of the old 19th-century buildings. Potatoes were also grown and supplied the local chip shops in Aberystwyth. Dairy farming continued at the farm up until 2003.
    The house has now been carefully and lovingly restored by the present owners, retaining period features, including original flagstone flooring, that gives the house its character. The spacious country kitchen, with a traditional clothes airing pulley, features a large range cooker with three ovens. The kitchen is open plan with the comfortable dining area so it’s the perfect place for a sociable gathering with friends or family. The living room boasts a cosy wood burner and there’s an adjoining games room to enjoy with table football and darts. On the first floor there are four light and airy attractive bedrooms, two with double aspect windows. The master bedroom features an en-suite shower room and walk-in dressing room. Outside, the large garden is great for children to enjoy and adults to appreciate sitting out with a glass of wine around the fire pit on colder evenings.
    Capel Bangor has a village shop and two pubs, one of which is a gastro pub, using local produce serving fine wines and their own real ales as it’s also home to the world’s smallest commercial brewery.
    The Vale of Rheidol narrow gauge steam locomotive is the finest way to explore the stunning Rheidol Valley. Opened in 1902, the railway has been delighting passengers young and old for over a century and the train which begins in Aberystwyth calls at Capel Bangor station on its way to Devil’s Bridge where you can alight to visit the unique waterfalls that have attracted many thousands of visitors since the 18th Century, including William Wordsworth who wrote about the "Torrent at the Devil’s Bridge". Today, the Falls Nature Trail provides a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge. Birds of prey such as red kite and buzzards are regularly seen soaring high above the valley floor and breathtaking views can be enjoyed by all.
    Stay at lovely Tyllwyd Farmhouse and enjoy this distinctive Welsh region with a thriving cultural identity. It’s perfect for a weekend break or a longer stay with award-winning beaches, sandy coves, sea cliffs, caves and wonderful wildlife, spectacular sunsets and starry dark skies.

    Step outside and the space continues! The large Welsh slate patio area leads you all along the periphery of the barn where you’ll pass numerous impressive wood carvings, a landscaped flower and herb garden and a full size football/rugby pitch.
