The Lowdown

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.

The nuts & bolts:

The cottage is heated with modern electric radiators. There is also a fabulous log burner to keep you toasty. All windows are double glazed.  There is also wi-fi.

Well  equipped 'galley'style kitchen with an open side/counter so that you can still be a part of what is go on in the living area! There is a dishwasher, an electric hob and fan oven. Pod Coffee maker, stove top Bialetti Espresso maker. Fitted kitchen  units, under counter fridge.

Comfortable, but a few issues

A comfortable cottage and nice to be able to walk down into Llangrannog for the beach or a drink - about 12 mins downhill and 15 mins back! We did find the upstairs double bedroom smelt damp and our clothes also then smelt damp. A few equipment issues, eg the Nespresso machine didn’t work and no hand towels or bath mats supplied. No feedback form either.
