This Aberystwyth self catering accommodation is set in a quiet rural location with great views over the town and out to sea, on the hillside near Constitution Hill. It is accessed through half a mile of private road, up from Aberystwyth's promenade and therefore enjoys the best of both worlds. It is situated in a secluded spot, sharing the road with only a handful of other properties scattered along the road, guaranteeing a quiet, relaxing setting with enviable sea views.
The nearest amenities can all be found in Aberystwyth, including a wide range of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. Amongst the numerous recommended eating establishments in town, you have Baravin, Pysgoty, Medina, Gwesty Cymru, Agnellis and Ultracomida - all within a mile. There are plenty of pubs, lovely cafes and a few cocktail bars to enjoy, as well as two beaches and a promenade for a relaxing walk along the sea front.
Aberystwyth also boasts an excellent Arts Centre, the National Library of Wales, the longest cliff railway in Britain (and the only one of its kind in Wales) and a traditional, family run cinema. Not to mention direct access to the Wales Coastal Path that will bring you to more excellent beaches such as Borth and Ynyslas, with amazing views over Cardigan Bay along the way.
Aberystwyth (literally translated - Mouth of the River Ystwyth) is a bustling University seaside town that also offers direct access to the Cambrian Mountains and Rheidol Valley. The Vale of Rheidol Railway offers a very popular day trip up to Devil's Bridge (seasonal timetable), an area steeped in myths and legends. When you arrive in Devil’s Bridge (Pont-ar-fynach in Welsh), follow the riverside walk to see the three bridges built on top of each other and a magnificent waterfall.
