100% cannot fault this property it was everything we wanted and more. Stayed for the weekend 8 Girls Celebrating a 50th birthday. Fully equipped with everything you need, Hot Tub was amazing enough for all eight of us. The caretaker was fantastic we even got to meet the owners of the property who were lovely too. You will not be disappointed with this property.

Mr L,

Excellent property, the hot tub was great to relax in after one of the many walks, taking in the beautiful scenery.

Mrs B,

Lovely spacious, spotless cottage with extras such as the hot tub and pool table, adding to the holiday experience. Cycle path was great pretty much opposite the property, lovely run into Aberystwyth. Dog shower with hot water at the back was a great added feature for the rainy days. Owners have thought of everything!

Mrs L,

Fabulous 5* accommodation! Hot tub, pool table, dog friendly, won't be disappointed!!!

Mrs M,

Gorgeous property, helpful owner and maintenance man, clean, tidy and a fair price. We absolutely loved our long weekend here walking from the door and relaxing in the hot tub afterwards! Cannot fault this property or our experience AT ALL. Highly recommend.

Mrs J,

A wonderful home from home property with modern furniture and fittings, central location with local supermarkets close by. The property was true to description on the website, we all had an enjoyable stay.

mrs Z,

Fabulous property would highly recommend on all aspects, especially for a dog walking holiday with friends. Found some excellent dog friendly pubs including The Glengower in town and YFarmers a 15 min drive which was remote but fantastic food. Owners and Caretaker were readily available if we needed them. Would definitely return if we were in the area again. Hot tub a bonus. As was the Charging Point for the car.

Mrs B,

The house is beautiful and felt very safe with an 18 month old to run around. Excellent location and the hot tub was just perfect after a day of exploring

Mrs M,

Very nice and clean house, great location, friendly area - we couldn't recommend it more and tried to book to come back in summer but was already booked, will hopefully come back next year with more family.

Mr S,


Ideal group accommodation near Aberystwyth, Corlan Aber is a detached large property in a tranquil setting in the village of Llanfarian, with an enclosed garden and private hot tub. Just a 1/4 of a mile off the main coast road between Aberystwyth and Aberaeron, this is a highly convenient and central base for your holiday on the Cardigan Bay coast.

The village of Llanfarian offers a licensed fish and chips shop and a small shop for essentials, whilst Aberystwyth with its bigger shops and amenities is within 3 miles. For eating out, Aberystwyth has plenty of recommended options including Ultracomida and Baravin, Pysgoty, Byrgyr and Gwesty Cymru. For Sunday lunch, Marine is highly recommended whilst Tynllidiart Arms and Maes Bangor in Capel Bangor (6 miles) and Y Ffarmers in Llanfihangel-y-Creuddyn (7 miles) and Halfway Inn in Pisgah (7.4) are also well worth the journey. Plenty of good pubs, including the Glengower (dog friendly) and Ship & Castle for local ales.

Ynyslas’ RSPB Nature Reserve is also very popular whilst a steam train ride along the Vale of Rheidol Railway from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge offers a great day out (seasonal timetable). This area is steeped in myths and legends and 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. Treat yourself to a meal at Hafod Arms before catching the train back to Aberystwyth.
