Steeped in history, this luxurious, first floor apartment is located within a Grade II listed house boasting amazing sea views.

Part of a Grade II listed mansion house with an illustrious background, Spindrift is a luxurious apartment with amazing sea views within this imposing residence. Built in 1835 by a Napoleonic war hero, it has been a WWII isolation hospital, a catering college and owned by a rock star with recording studios used by many famous music artists, a shrine to Jimi Hendrix once existed. The building, now converted into luxury apartments, nestles in 7 acres of grounds, just south of Aberystwyth, with dramatic vistas of the sea and views of no less than three castles. Spindrift, an evocative name after the fine sea spray blown from cresting waves, is located on the first floor via a staircase. This attractive apartment has been restored, keeping many original 19th-century features including architrave, plasterwork, and sash windows; and is stylishly furnished from the open plan living space to the spacious double bedroom (both with sea views) and en-suite shower room.
The apartment has access to 7 acres of shared woodland so you can make the most of this idyllic location and the outstanding sea views. A comfortable 30-minute beach walk or a 15-minute cycle along a Sustrans route will bring you to the university town of Aberystwyth, where you will discover the pier and promenade, castle, and the National Library of Wales (free guided tours available). Constitution Hill has a Victorian electric cliff railway to the summit as well as an unusual Camera Obscura allowing you to look back over the whole of Aberystwyth through a camera lens. The Aberystwyth Arts Centre is a top quality entertainment centre and considered the best in Wales outside of Cardiff. From Aberystwyth you can take the steam train on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to Devil’s Bridge. There are 60 miles of coastal paths in Ceredigion accessible from here and if you prefer a day out without the car, a ¾-mile walk will bring you to the stop where the buses go north or south to a variety of destinations, such as New Quay, where you may take a dolphin watching boat trip, and Aberaeron, a Georgian harbour town famous for its coloured houses and chic shops, cafés and restaurants. Ceredigion has a wealth of things to see and do whilst on holiday - from unsurpassed beaches, renowned nature reserves, historic houses and gardens, and interesting coastal and inland towns and villages.
Whatever your interest, you won’t be short of ways to fill your days and Spindrift is the perfect elegant apartment to return to every day. Beach 400 yards. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.

    We had a super stay in a beautiful part of the world. The house has a fascinating history and the view is perfection. Sit and watch the sea from the Victorian windows with the sea spray drifting up the valley.

    A delightful comfortable apartment with great views. We enjoyed peace and quiet; just the lovely sound of the waves to send you to sleep. The owners were very attentive, both after booking and on arrival day but gave us full privacy thereafter. The property is very well equipped with everything you need.

    Really enjoyed the quiet location, the wonderful views and proximity to Aberystwyth. Spindrift was really comfortable, well designed and furnished and the welcome pack and other little additions were very much appreciated. Hope to go back before too long.

    Lovely, well presented and clean apartment. We were made to feel very welcome by a welcome pack from the owners and a detailed tour of the apartment upon arrival including where all the equipment manuals were kept. The apartment enjoyed undisturbed views down to the coast and just a shirt walk outside of the town centre. Overall we had a lovely and relaxing stay.

    We enjoyed everything about the apartment, its position and the nearness to Aberystwyth. Plenty to do in the locality and the Vale Of Rheidol railway a definite must.

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Spindrift. The owner had provided us with very clear written directions in advance of how to find Plas Tanybwlch, as the sat nav does not take you all the way! The location is spectacular. We were met by the owner on arrival, who gave us all the relevant information re the apartment and provided a very welcoming hamper. There were difficulties with the WiFi, which we had been told about before and on arrival. The owner was doing her best to resolve this. The apartment is very clean comfortable and well equipped. The views of the sea from both the living room and bedroom windows are amazing. The walk along the beach to Aberystwyth was delightful. We had a wonderful week and hope to return.

    Great location, wonderful views and great walking area. This is my new go to place in my mind's eye when I want to relax and unwind. Great place for quiet contemplation. Would love to live in a place like this, hosts and neighbours excellent and knowledgeable.

    Fabulous location and Spindrift offered excellent accommodation and facilities. The welcome pack was a delight and the rooms very spacious. Close to all the local amenities and the seafront walks were fabulous. The internet dips in and out but we were there to relax and unwind so didn't bother us too much. would highly recommend to anyone and if we visit again will look to see if this is available.
