Gwynfa offers charm and comfort for your holiday. With beams, and exposed stonework it’s the epitome of a traditional, terraced Welsh cottage, but with the modern comfort you’d expect. The open plan ground floor flows nicely from the living room with a comfy sofa and wood-pellet stove through to a well-equipped kitchen with stainless steel work tops and dining area with French doors that lead out to the chamomile lawn. The wooden staircase leads up to characterful double room, a bunk room and a shower room. There is no dedicated Wi-Fi in the property but you are in a BT hotspot area for paid access, or free if you have your own BT account. Show more
The pretty little garden has a decked terrace with integrated seating that looks out across the fields where cows are often grazing. It’s so peaceful here you could get lost in a good book; but don’t forget to get out and explore this wonderfully diverse area. It’s a nice walk through the lanes to the beach at Cwmtydu, 2 miles away, or if you prefer to drive there is a car park there. This gorgeous cove is unspoiled but there’s a café for the all-important drinks and ice creams (usually closed in winter though), before you head off to mess around on the beach or walk part of the coastal path. In the autumn you may be lucky enough to see the seals and their pups on the beach. There are lots of other coves and beaches in the area so make sure you also visit the National Trust beach at Penbryn or the beaches at Tresaith and Llangrannog; the latter two having great pubs overlooking the sea. The pretty seaside town of New Quay is only a 10-minute drive away and here there are more beaches and a good selection of independent shops and eateries. Explore the Dylan Thomas trail around the town or catch a boat to go looking for dolphins. The bottlenose dolphins are frequent visitors to the bay and some time spent sitting on the harbour wall (with fish and chips of course!) will often be rewarded with sightings.
A 20-minute drive in the opposite direction will bring you to Cardigan town itself; a thriving market town on the banks of the estuary. There’s an Indian restaurant on a boat and in season a tipi restaurant serving wood-fired pizzas and craft ales. Stroll through the narrow streets and soak up the atmosphere and make time to visit the ancient castle ruins and exhibitions. There is so much to explore along Cardigan Bay but you are also within easy reach for a day out in Pembrokeshire and the family attractions of Oakwood Theme Park and Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo can be reached in an hour. St David’s, the smallest city in Wales is 75 minutes away and you can see the magnificent cathedral and Bishops Palace. There’s so much to do in this region, whether you like relaxing, walking and beach combing or activities such as golf, fishing or sailing. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
