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.

    Why not experience something truly unique for a short break or a longer stay? Cliff Railway Apartment is located above the station and ticket office at the base of the longest funicular electric cliff railway in Britain, which has been transporting visitors to the summit since opening in 1896. Situated at the northern end of Aberystwyth promenade, the apartment boasts very comfortable accommodation with sea views from the kitchen and direct views over the railway from the bedrooms. Guests are offered free passes on the railway for the duration of their stay (please note there are reduced operating days and times from November to mid March).

    The Aberystwyth Cliff Railway operated on a water balance system until electrification in 1921. Today the carriages are hauled to the summit at a stately four miles per hour, and travel majestically to the summit of Constitution Hill, rising dramatically from the sea, providing spectacular and uninterrupted views of the town, Cardigan Bay, and on a clear day, 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales. Once at the summit visitors can experience the views afforded by the one of the world’s largest camera obscuras, which offers a bird’s eye view of 1000 square miles of land and seascape. There are also fascinating historical displays, a kids play area, a well-stocked gift shop, and a cafe selling delicious meals, homemade snacks and cakes. The café itself was used for filming during the popular TV detective series "Hinterland" as were many locations around Aberystwyth.

    Just a short stroll from the apartment is the beach and promenade, lined with Victorian buildings and leading to the pier. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping and a wide choice of places to eat in this university town, as well as castle ruins, the harbour, the National Library of Wales with a visitor centre, and Aberystwyth Arts Centre, a bustling entertainment venue. The surrounding hills hold the visible remains of an iron age fort and also a monument to Wellington and, once climbed offer stunning views of Cardigan Bay. Also not to be missed is a trip on the lovely Vale of Rheidol steam train, departing from Aberystwyth and travelling through the stunning Welsh countryside to the beautiful Devil’s Bridge waterfalls.

    Within very easy reach of Aberystwyth, there are golden sandy beaches, colourful seaside towns and villages, and places to explore such as the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve dominated by a sand dune landscape and home to an array of rare plants, wading birds and wildlife, including colourful orchids early in the summertime. With views inland and across the estuary to Aberdyfi, it is a great spot for walking or relaxing with boardwalks and trails through the dunes. Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian Forest Centre is a large woodland site with a host of activities including walks, cycle trails and red kite feeding with a shop and information centre. The peaceful wooded and landscaped Hafod Estate in the Ystwyth Valley has a variety of waymarked walks.

    Y Berllan (The Orchard) is a delightful bungalow situated in an elevated position to take full advantage of the amazing views over Borth, which has a four mile award winning beach with a submerged forest seen at very low tide, the Dovey Estuary and the Ceredigion coastline. As you sit looking at the stunning views of the sea, Cambrian Mountains, rolling hills and countryside, it will be hard to tear yourself away from Y Berllan; but luckily wherever you go in Ceredigion, wonderful views await you. The coastal towns and villages of Cardigan Bay are colourful and charming, still displaying their fishing and boat building roots. Lovers of wildlife or the outdoors will appreciate the abundance on offer from Red Kites to bottlenose dolphins and world class walking, cycling and mountain biking. RSPB Ynys-hir with oak woodland, wet grassland and saltmarshes is a haven for all types of birds and where you can watch them from the hides. Close by, the Dyfi Osprey project will equally delight nature fans.

    Visit nearby Ynyslas sand dunes with waymarked boardwalks and visitor centre, appealing seaside resorts of Aberdovey, colourful Georgian harbour town Aberaeron, quaint New Quay and stately Aberysytwyth with a Victorian electric cliff railway, promenade and pier, or take the narrow gauge steam train to Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls. You can get acquainted with the history of lead-mining in the area including a trip underground, at the Silver Mountain Experience.

    Pumlumon, pronounced “Pimlimmon” – is the highest summit in the Cambrian Mountains of mid-Wales and dominates the countryside of north Ceredigion. For centuries the wild summits, rolling foothills, and deep valleys have made this one of the least-known parts of Wales and today, the remote, peaceful atmosphere and lack of development are among the area’s greatest assets. The natural mountain lakes, old mine ponds and reservoirs of the Rheidol hydro-electric scheme, along with rivers and streams, provide a wide choice for the angler and some of the best brown trout fishing in the country.

    A warm Welsh welcome awaits you, or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say, and at the end of busy days exploring the region, the village of Talybont is a just a couple of miles away from your holiday home, offering welcoming pubs with good food.

Talypont is about 8 miles north of Aberystwyth and less than 5 miles from the beautiful beaches and coastline of Ceredigion. Outside the sun trapped courtyard is an ideal spot for enjoying a gin and tonic or a barbecue. The village is well served for those who appreciate good inns serving food on the doorstep. There are also several mapped walks from the village ranging from easy to strenuous, including part of the “Spirit of the Miners Trail”. Guests looking for some of Ceredigion’s more challenging walking experiences can tackle the summit of Pumlumon, the highest point of the Cambrian Mountains in Ceredigion. Take a trip to the nearby Nant Yr Arian Visitor Centre and enjoy seeing the red kites being fed or enjoy the most popular woodland in mid Wales with a range of walking and mountain biking trails, visitor centre and café.

    Lying in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, this unique detached stone cottage makes an unforgettable experience for a family or couples alike. The first record of Llechwedd Mawr dates back to 1587 when a farmer, Richard Morgan, rented the land. It was the traditional way back then to graze cattle through the summer and make butter and cheese to sell in the neighbouring villages. A survey of 1811 described the building as "a stone house with a slate cover in good repair and that with 983 acres the rent shall be £22 per annum."

    Over the following years the house saw many changes and occupants until the 1950s when it became inaccessible due to a hydro-electric dam being built, and it stood abandoned and isolated for many years until a road was made. The present owners purchased the land and cottage in the 1980s and it was used merely to store sheep food until its complete renovation in 2011 and then two years later it was transformed into the uniquely positioned and beautiful holiday home it is today.

    The owners have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH The Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales.

    There are mountain views from all windows and a scenic route leads you from the village of Talybont over the Nant-y-Moch Dam to Ponterwyd and Devil’s Bridge. On your approach to the cottage, ‘Pumlumon’ - the highest peak in the Cambrian Mountain range - will come into full view with its 760 square mile vastness of heather, forest, shimmering lakes and sourcing the mighty Severn and Wye rivers. This high country of compelling emptiness defies civilisation, providing a natural playground for ramblers, mountain bikers and bird watchers alike. If you can drag yourself away from the tranquillity of Llechwedd Mawr, the nearby charming towns of Aberystwyth, Machynlleth and Aberaeron are well worth a visit, offering traditional Welsh pubs, boutique shops and sandy beaches where dolphins and porpoises are often spotted on a clear day. Horse riding nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant, 8 miles.
