- Unit 1
This lovely renovated stone built School House - is a delight! Quirky, stylish and perfect for a chilled family holiday by the sea.
This cottage has a strong design aesthetic and has managed to bridge the gap brilliantly between old and 'funky' contemporary styles!
There are wide reaching views over the valley to Llangrannog and to the sea beyond. You are within walking distance from the seaside village of Llangrannog with its cosy pubs, Sea & Slate gallery (!) and cafes, it is the ideal location for walkers (the Ceredigion coastal path is virtually on your doorstep) and families alike. You can watch the sunset from the excellent cafes (with delicious ice cream as recommended by Rick Stein) and pubs that serve fresh seafood straight from Cardigan Bay (season permitting)
Go surfing, kayaking or for the less adventurous enjoy a picnic on the beach (only a 10 minute stroll away - for the less energetic, you can catch the bus shuttle from the top of the hill)
Positioned roughly halfway between the market town of Cardigan and the Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron. You are perfectly positioned to explore the rugged Ceridigion coastline and the pretty beaches of Llangrannog.
