Rose Cottage is a delightful white-painted semi-detached stone cottage, with enclosed rear garden, overlooking Afon Leri (Leri River), just 1.5 miles from the coast at Borth and 6 miles north of Aberystwyth on the West Wales coast, overlooking the heart of Cardigan Bay, ideal for spotting dolphins and sea birds. This lovely old cottage retains many original features including beamed ceilings, slate floors and large inglenook fireplace with bread oven. Originally just ‘one-up one-down’, the cottage has now been extended to include a kitchen and ground floor shower room in addition to the spacious living room and bedroom.

"Beautiful cottage!! Ideal location for walking from the door - did not use the car at all during our stay!" 

The accommodation and facilities comprise:

Kitchen: well-fitted galley kitchen with hand-made units, electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, tall fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and slim dishwasher.

The original dark oak staircase, narrow and with two turns, rises from the living room direct into the first floor bedroom.

Outside: An enclosed side and rear garden with lawn and mature planting, patio and Summer House, overlooking the river. Garden furniture and barbecue. Fishing rights (trout and occasionally salmon) on the River Leri, from the patio, if you have your own rod and license.

Parking: Rose Cottage fronts the lane running through the picturesque village of Dol-y-Bont. There is one private gravelled parking space adjacent.

"Perfect little cottage for a relaxing break. We loved it." 

Borth and Ynyslas together provide over three miles of sandy beach, a lovely walk from Borth to the Ynyslas Nature Reserve, where the Afon Leri joins the Dyfi Estuary. Ynyslas also has a historic golf course. There is a small supermarket in Borth and several pubs, cafes and takeaways along the road from Borth to Ynyslas. A little further inland is an attractive waterfall, water mill and woodland walks at Furnace, also known as Artists' Valley, and nearby RSPB Nature Reserve at Ynys-Hir. The university town of Aberystwyth has a castle, harbour, promenade and pier, with lovely views from Constitution Hill over Cardigan Bay.

Mr Graham J,

Very nice location, very friendly helpful owners

Mr Derek W,

The beach walk from Borth to Ynyslas is a delight - at low tide can walk through the remains of the 6,000 year old submerged forest. This area is also practical for visiting southern Snowdonia - hiking Cadair Idris for example. If you enjoy the romance of an old cottage, this is a good one.
