This detached pet-friendly West Wales cottage is set directly opposite the owne'rs house on a smallholding that includes chickens,a duck pond and horses. The cottage is just 1/2 a mile from the village of Cross Inn with its pub and general stores.
Aberaeron is only 6 miles away from this pet-friendly West Wales cottage with the university town of Aberystwyth some 13 miles to the North. Aberaeron was once a busy port but is now a quaint Georgian harbour town with some great restaurants, plenty of local cafes, pubs and shops to enjoy. With tastes to suit all, from fish and chips down on the quay to a la-carte dining. The harbour and nearby beach are worth a visit as is the Llanerchaeron Country Estate. Fishing and sailing trips can also be arranged from the harbour and the area is also popular for walking, birdwatching and is great for families.
Aberystwyth is another family friendly seaside resort. This university town is larger than Aberaeron and has a great selection of shops including some brand chains such as M&S (arriving summer 2014), Next and local boutiques. Dolphin watching has become one of the favourite attractions in the area and Cardigan Bay has a large dolphin population. Dolphin watching trips can be booked from New Quay but quite often just a walk along the headland at Mwnt, Llangrannog or New Quay can be enough to catch a glimpse of these amazing mammals in action.
A firm family favourite is the Fantasy Farm park This attraction is only 2 miles away and includes animals, nature trails, rodeo area, go carts, boating lake and much more.
Aberaeron is the closest beach. 4.0 miles and ideal for gentle water sports such as sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. There are many other beaches nearby including the lovely Llangrannog 14 miles.
The water sports centre in New Quay offers a great choice of activities to suit all. 12 miles.
Sea fishing – Excellent beach and shore fishing all around the coast and charter boat trips available from Aberystwyth and Aberaeron Harbour. 4 miles
Course Fishing - there are some lakes in the area including Celtic Lakes with over 75 acres of water to enjoy. 13 miles
Game Fishing - The River Aeron has a run of sewin (sea trout) and salmon and day tickets can be purchased. The Teifi is one of Wales' most famous salmon rivers. 6 Miles
Ceredigion Coast Path is now part of the All Wales Coastal Path and follows a 60 mile route between the Teifi and Dyfi Estuaries. You can even do a spot of dolphin watching whilst walking the spectacular coastline. 4 miles
Superb quiet country roads, ideal for road cycling and many trails available.For mountain biking the Brechfa Forest includes many trails including Gorlech, Raven and Derwen Trails and Bwlch Nant yr Arian also has great trails. 20 miles. Bikes can also be hired from Cyclemart near the cottage.
