About Joy Davies
I am a retired university lecturer and have taught French and Spanish all my life. I now work as a free lance translator - mainly English into Welsh. I love travelling and feel it is important to provide guests with the same experience as I expect to receive when I'm staying elsewhere.
Joy Davies purchased this House in 2011
Why Joy Davies chose Aberporth
The house was built in 2011 and is maintained to a high standard. We love Ceredigion and West Wales and when this plot became available we went for it. It feels like going back in time to a more leisurely rural environment. At the same time, there are plenty of shops and things to do in the area.
What makes this House unique
For us it's our second home so it has everything we expect when staying there. It's within easy reach of the beach, coastal path, restaurants and shops but is is also a peaceful haven where we can relax and unwind. And the views are out of this world. You can see Snowdon and the Llyn Peninsula from the kitchen and lounge on a clear day.

Excellent Holiday in Aberporth
Tir a Mor is a great place for a holiday on the Welsh coast. Accommodation was immaculate on arrival, it has great views from the kitchen and upstairs lounge and features everything a family on holiday could need. Quick 10 minute walk to the beach (uphill on the way back) but was fine for us. As others have said, we'd highly recommend food at the 'The Ship Inn' down the road in Aberporth. We also enjoyed trips to Cardigan and New Quay... The Bluebell Deli & Bistro at New Quay was also one of our favourites for food out. Aberporth itself is very nice, with an excellent beach, that splits into two at high tide. Joy is also very helpful, friendly and easy to get hold of. Big thumbs up for Tir a Mor!
Lovely quiet location within easy walking distance of the beach and coast path. Spacious, spotless and everything catered for. Everything went very smoothly from booking to leaving the property.
Amazing House, Great Location
Highly recommend this house, very clean, everything you need for a comfortable stay. Communication with the owner is effortless and she is happy to answer any questions you might have. Good location for exploring the area, Aberporth is a small village with a lovely sandy beach, we were very lucky to see Dolphins all along the coast including in Aberporth bay.
We stayed for a week in this beautiful house. As many other reviewers have commented, the photos on this site really don’t do the house justice! It is light and airy and very spacious. The facilities are top notch and Joy has thought about everything you could possibly desire!
The views from both the kitchen and lounge area are outstanding and the telescope is a lovely added touch.
I had an issue with the boiler (which was totally my fault) and Joy still answered the phone just before midnight and talked me through how to rectify my error! Such a wonderful, pleasant owner to deal with. Thank you for an amazing stay!!
FYI, anyone with kids must go to the Cardigan Island Coastal Farm! We spent a wonderful morning there and saw nine seals in their natural habitat!
I'm delighted to receive such a positive first review of the year. Much appreciated. I try to make sure that every guest has the best possible experience and am at the end of a phone most of the time to help with any issues that might arise.
Thank you for the recommendation for Cardigan Island Coastal Farm. It sounds great! We have a lot of leaflets and a guest information book at the house, but it's always good to hear about personal experiences of a particular destination.
Superb house in a superb setting
The house was excellent. It was very comfortable, very well equipped and the decor was modern and imaginative. The views from the lounge were stunning. Aberporth was lovely, with two attractive bays.
The food at The Ship Inn was very good, and reasonably priced. We liked Cardigan, and the Fishermans Rest became a favourite lunch stop. The coastal walk from Aberporth to Tresaith was easy, and the views were magnificent. Cenarth is well worth a visit, and Mwnt is a must. We will definitely go again, hopefully the weather will be better next time.
Thank you for your excellent review - I'm delighted that you liked the house and enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for your helpful advice for future guests. This is always appreciated. Joy
A fabulous house with breathtaking views of the Sea and coastline
This property caters for everyone ..and every need. It is modern, relaxing, beautifully decorated and faultless.I stayed here with my husband and elderly parents, the local beach is wonderful-the best I have ever visited, peaceful, safe and ideal for every age group. As a base to visit the Ceredigion and surrounding area Tir a Mor is the finest, I would chose this property every time. Cardigan, Newquay, Pembryn, Fishguard , Tenby, Carmarthen, The National Botanical Gardens of Wales, the Cliff Hotel at Gwbert and sailing all within easy reach. Our favourite was the beautiful evening strolls along the coastal path above the bay at Aberporth as the Sun set..The owner deserves a great deal of credit as this property is simply outstanding .
Many thanks for your review. I am very pleased that you and your parents had such a lovely time and that you liked our house. The walk along the coastal path to Tresaith is magnificent!
Aberporth is a delightful coastal village situated 5 miles to the north of Cardigan. There has been little in the way of major change or development in the village over the years and it is very much a family resort in summer and a popular base for touring and walking all year. The village is centered around two small sandy beaches separated by a rocky promontory. Aberporth is one of the 5 beaches in Ceredigion to receive the Blue Flag Award 2016. The village has two pubs that do food, cafés, a Chinese takeaway, a post office, launderette, small supermarket and pharmacy.
Aberporth Beach 5 minutes walk. 2 small sandy beaches very popular with families. Several other beautiful small beaches in the vicinity - Tresaith, Mwnt, Penybryn, Cwm Tudu, Llangrannog.

The house is within easy driving distance of the market town of Cardigan, the Preseli Mountains, the Pembrokeshire National Park and the beautiful Teifi Valley with its renowned Cenarth Falls.

Ceredigion is a coastal county extending from just south of Cardigan to Aberystwyth and beyond to the north, and inland as far as the dramatic Cambrian Mountains. It is Wales’s best kept secret – it’s attractions may not be as well-known as those in some other counties, but it is nonetheless a region with a wonderful countryside and coastline. The Teifi Valley flows through the county rising near the historic abbey of Strata Florida. It flows through Tregaron then curves westwards through Lampeter, Newcastle Emlyn and out to sea at Cardigan. This beautiful valley wends its way through a variety of land formations from the peat bogs near Tregaron, to the waterfalls at Llandysul, Henllan and Cenarth and a gorge at Cilgerran, before flowing out to sea at the vast Poppit Sands beach west of St. Dogmaels. All of these places are accessible by road and can be easily visited and enjoyed. Aberporth is an ideal base for visiting the county and all its attractions.
