Reviews

We loved our stay in Riverview. The location is fabulous; the view takes in the river, the sea and countryside, too. There is a lovely walk right on the doorstep and it's possible to walk into Aberystwyth easily. We found the property to be well appointed and very comfortable and the owners were most helpful. We definitely want to visit again!

Mrs S,

River view is an amazing place, if we could live there it would be a dream come true. Stunning views all around, lovely walks and close to everything.

Miss B,

Location

River View is situated in an enviable location with stunning coastal and river views, just over half a mile from every amenity that the lovely seaside town of Aberystwyth has to offer. Perched on a rocky outcrop above the river Ystwyth, directly on the Wales Coast Path, and nestled at the foot of an Iron Age Hill fort, it is a perfect location for walkers, nature lovers or those who simply want to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. It also offers plenty of tranquility as the furthest of a handful of terraced houses along a private drive.

A short walk (approx 15 minutes) brings you to the centre of town and the nearest supermarket is just over 0.5 mile from the house. As one of West Wales’s main towns, Aberystwyth offers varied and plentiful shopping, bars, restaurants and cafes. It also features three beaches (including Tanybwlch on your doorstep), a promenade, a unique cliff railway, a castle and museum, Aberystwyth University, the largest Arts Centre in Wales and the National Library of Wales.

The best places to eat in the area includes Medina (0.5 mile) with fantastic Mediterranean influenced food, Ultracomedia (0.5 mile) offering high quality Spanish tapas, Pysgoty (0.7 mile), a small restaurant specialising in fish and seafood dishes and Baravin (0.7 mile), serving Italian food and overlooking the main promenade. Gwesty Cymru is also highly recommended on the seafront. For a few drinks, The Libertine (0.7 mile) serve great cocktails whilst recommended pubs include The Glengower (1 mile) on the seafront, serving good food and ale, Bottle and Barrel, a trendy craft beer bar, Ship and Castle for local ales, and Rummers by the bridge for live music and outdoor seating.

Aberystwyth 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. For activities, Colossal Activities can provide anything from golf to mountain bike hire to fishing and kayak hire. You can also enjoy excursions into the Cambrian Mountains for views, local history and wildlife with Cambrian Safaris. Other attractions include The Magic of Life Butterfly House, the remains of a Welsh Cistercian abbey at Ystrad Fflur (Strata Florida Abbey) and the Animalarium in Borth.
