About the property

Family friendly cottage in lovely quiet location, minutes from beach, cafes etc

Situated in the lovely seaside village of Llangrannog on Cardigan Bay, West Wales, the cottage is only a three minute walk from the beach and a variety of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. It is located at the end of a quiet lane along a stream.

The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and rocking chair, and the second bedroom has a double bed and set of bunkbeds, ideal for couples on a romantic getaway, or for families with up to three children. The newly renovated kitchen seats up to six people at a fold-down dining table, plus a highchair. It has a new dishwasher and washing machine, microwave and electric cooker with induction hob. The living room has a cosy log and coal burner and comfortable leather furniture. New storage heaters have been installed throughout. There is wifi (fibre broadband), a TV with DVD player and Freeview Play for catch up TV and Netflix access.

The cottage is over two floors, with the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Parking is available for one small car, and access is limited on the lane. For larger vehicles, free parking is available approximately 400 yards away. One well-behaved dog is allowed for an additional charge of £25. No smoking.

The coastal path is less than 200 yards away. The spectacular rocky coastline has a number of beautiful sandy beaches and the possibility of spotting seals and dolphins. Aberporth, Penbryn (National Trust) and Tresaith beaches are a short drive away. The nearest large supermarkets are Tesco and Aldi, 12 miles away in the historic market town of Cardigan, which also has a good range of shops, restaurants, cafes, a theatre, cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre. The scenic harbour at Aberaeron is 14 miles up the coast.

Two miles away in Brynhoffnant is a good small supermarket and petrol station, and there is a great farm shop in nearby Sarnau selling local Welsh delicacies. The Urdd (youth) Centre is just outside the village and offers dry slope skiing and other activities. Further afield are the Preseli Mountains, several historic castles and heritage sites such as St Dogmael’s Abbey, and family attractions like the Welsh Wildlife Centre. Other activities include dolphin watching, kayaking, coasteering, golf, horse riding and river fishing.

About Julia

Hi, my name is Julia. My husband Jim and I purchased this lovely cottage in 2016 so that we could visit family nearby. My daughter Shannon manages the property and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We really hope you enjoy your stay in Llangrannog!

Julia purchased this house in 2016

Why Julia chose Llandysul

This is the place to stay if you want peace and quiet, but still close to the beach, pubs, cafes and ice cream parlours. It's especially nice if you love coastal walks, and the scenery is very rugged and natural, with lots of opportunities to enjoy the local wildlife - dolphins, sea birds etc.

Lovely quiet cottage near beach

  • 5 of 5

Bodawen is a lovely 2 bedroomed cottage tucked away down a quiet lane but within a short walk of the village and beach. Although small, it is very well equipped and the owner kindly provides milk, fruit and basic groceries for new arrivals. We have been coming for many years and intend to so again.

Lovely cottage on a quiet lane

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here at the start of the month with our family, including 2 teens. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. It is situated on a quiet lane only minutes walk from the lovely beaches at Llangrannog.

Very well equipped, cosy and perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, the cottage was brilliantly well equipped for self catering, clean and warm especially with the wood burner lit. The owner and daughter were at the end of the phone if needed. The cottage is a traditional fishermans cottage and probably over 100 years old, a short walk to the beach it was just what we wanted.

Lovely short break

  • 5 of 5

Directions to the cottage were easy to follow. The lane is indeed very narrow, good thing our i20 car had a rearview camera, and that I am a confident reverser.

The cottage kitchen is provided with everything you could ever need on holiday, incl lots of 'basic' provisions such as welcoming fresh pint of milk, coffee and tea, various herbs and spices, cooking oils, cleaning products, etc. The double bed was very comfortable, we have slept like a rose on all days. The shower over bath has good water pressure, with lots of bathroom provisions too. The vestibule has a handy seat for taking off dirty boots and plenty of space for shoe storage. The living room sofa was very comfortable. There are plenty of books, board games, some toys etc. We were not too sure what the outside sitting/garden area was, or whether we used it for parking, but was not needed for our stay.

The area near the cottage is very quiet, at only a few minutes easy walking distance from the beach and vatious outlets near it. The village shop has only very basic fresh meat provisions so if you need more than breakfast sausages or ham you will need to go elsewhere.

Perfect base location for coastal walking, and for watching dolphin antics in nearby New Quay or Mwnt.

Host Julia and daughter Shannon were pleasant, efficient, and most helpful.

Nice little cottage in great location.

Comfy, well equipped cottage at the end of a quiet track. We love the village and barely stepped foot out of it the whole time.

Grubby and damp

  • 1 of 5

Didn't enjoy this cottage. It was grubby and damp. After having to buy fuel we still weren't warm. The cottage is in a very steep valley and I felt claustrophobic, so after Christmas Day we came home. I have a 5* gold property in Herefordshire and I certainly wasn't judging this cottage against that. BUT one should be warm and cosy whatever the rating.

We love Llangrannog but we won't return to this cottage.

Owner's Response: We're so sorry the cottage was not to these guests' liking. However, they were informed in advance that the cottage, which is quite old, did not have central heating. We have owned the cottage for slightly more than a year, and we are continually making improvements. All of the old radiators have now been replaced with storage heaters, and the upstairs windows have been replaced with new, triple-glazed, energy-efficient windows. The fact remains that Llangrannog is on the west coast of Wales, where it can be cold, windy and rainy in winter, which makes a visit at that time of year a bit risky. We do take exception to the term “grubby,” which suggests a lack of cleanliness. As seen from all other reviews, NO ONE has suggested that the cottage was anything other than clean and tidy. The cottage is old, it’s true, but that does not make it grubby.
