This property is part of our Wales Regional Cottages collection

The Wales Regional Specialist -Fantastic properties in the most favourable locations. No one knows Wales better!


With its first floor living room looking out over the river, this property is just a short stroll from the lively harbour town of Aberaeron.

Y Bwythn Pren, meaning wooden or timber cottage, is a delightful ‘upside down’ house set in the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron. Standing detached, the cottage is half timbered and arranged with the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor. A quaint, spiral staircase takes you up to the first floor open-plan living space which takes advantage of the lovely view over the River Aeron. Open the doors to the Juliet balcony and listen to the sound of the water flowing down to the harbour and out to sea. Outside is a little courtyard where you can sit and there’s a bike store available and room to store canoes too as there is direct access to the river in front of the property. No doubt you will want to enjoy the delights of Aberaeron itself, which lies just a stone’s throw from this peaceful spot. Colourful buildings sit around the harbour, constructed in 1807, where boats bob about. There is an array of pubs, restaurants and cafés to suit all tastes and budgets, and a good variety of independent shops, many of which sell local produce and chic seaside gifts. The town is awash with festivals and unique events throughout the summer, so you can leave the car behind and enjoy the delights on offer such as a seafood festival, a cider and beer festival, a festival celebrating Welsh ponies and cobs, a mackerel festival, a carnival and more. In the winter, Aberaeron takes on a more sedate air, but you will find everything open for business and the pubs less crowded!
Take a delightful stroll from the town along the leafy pedestrian track to Llanerchaeron, an elegant Georgian villa set in the wooded Aeron Valley. Remarkably unaltered for over 200 years, this self-sufficient estate includes a farm, walled gardens and a lake, and is now run by the National Trust. Enjoy a coffee and a cake here before taking a leisurely stroll back.
If you want to explore a little further afield, the whole of Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay awaits. There are 60 miles of glorious coastal path if you enjoy walking, and lots of towns and villages to explore. Visit the Victorian seaside resort of Aberystwyth, with its pier and promenade, or take the steam railway to Devils Bridge. New Quay is just a few minutes’ drive away and there you will find a quaint town, once the home of poet Dylan Thomas, and a great place to spot the resident bottlenose dolphins or take a boat trip out to discover the wildlife. There are lots of lovely sandy beaches to discover - many are really quiet even in the height of season. After a day out, head back to Aberaeron, sit on the harbour wall and sample a famous honey ice cream or enjoy a drink. Beach approximately ¼ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 150 yards.

    Excellent property provided you can manage the spiral staircase. We found it wasn't a problem. Spacious for the two of us. Well equipped throughout. Comfy bed. Room to relax for four people to sit and natter. Close to local pubs and restaurants and near the harbour? We hired for a long weekend but would have been comfortable here for a longer stay.

    Excellent little cottage. Very clean, very peaceful, very relaxing. We enjoyed a 4 night stay here and loved it, there's a small patio area which isn't advertised which was a pleasant surprise. Definitely would stay here again!

    We enjoyed our stay at Y Bwthyn , slept really well in the very comfy kingsize bed , the cottage is very clean and as everything you need , the parking is a little awkward but l found if you drive in rather than reverse its easier .You are two minutes walk away from pubs and restaurants , we would recommend the harbourmaster for a drink . Had an enjoyable holiday .

    One of the better cottages we've stayed at. Good location. A bit on the small side but everything you need. Only reasons for giving 8 instead of 10 are, Parking space is tight for medium sized car, and house gets hot when sunny (no blinds on velux). Aberearon is a lovely little town.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. Most of our guests manage to park within the designated area. We are fortunate that there is space to park opposite the property and next to the river wall. Y Bwthyn Pren was built around 10 years ago and is therefore very well insulated. We were sorry to read that you felt it was too hot during your stay. As the 2 Velux windows are situated in the roof area, which is a living space rather than a bedroom, we did not feel that blinds were needed but appreciate your feedback.
