This attractive cottage is located 3 miles from the picturesque seaside town of Aberaeron, and is a great base for exploring the Ceredigion countryside and coastline. The property is located among a number of similar private dwellings, on the rural parkland estate of Tyglyn Vale, which is set in the glorious Aeron Valley countryside.
The area surrounding Tyglyn Vale, is perfect for walking , with quiet country roads and footpaths. The low levels of road traffic in this area also makes cycling a joy.
The nearest town, Aberaeron, with it's brightly painted houses, and pretty pebble beach, offers a number of excellent restaurants, many good pubs, and small shops offering local produce. The local Indian takeaway is a favourite of ours (their naan bread is a must). You can also enjoy 'dolphin spotting' boat trips from the harbour for a very reasonable price.
The seaside town of New Quay is several miles to the south. It has a beautiful sandy beach that the family can enjoy, along with a good choice of pubs and restaurants.
To the north is the bustling student town of Aberystwyth. Here you will find a great selection of restaurants and bars, along with a number of larger national stores.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
The county of Ceredigion is largely undiscovered, and therefore a great place to visit for those who want to relax and get away from the stress of modern life.To the east is the Cambrian Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park which are perfect for hill walking, rock climbing, and many other outdoor pursuits, whilst to the south is Pembrokeshire, with the theme park of Oakwood, and Folly Farm, within easy reach.
The 60 mile long Ceredigion Coast Path follows the spectacular and varied coastline of Cardigan Bay on the west coast of Wales. Stunning scenery, picturesque villages and a wealth of wildlife - including the highest numbers of dolphin sightings in the UK - make Ceredigion a perfect place for a week's coastal walking.
Whether you are looking for a short walk from a seaside resort or a more challenging adventurous hike along remote rugged shorelines, the Ceredigion Coast Path has something to offer you
The coast of Cardigan Bay is ideal for those who enjoy water based leisure activities such as sailing, scuba diving, or angling: regular boat trips depart from Aberaeron and New Quay on 'dolphin spotting' trips. There are many beautiful beaches dotted along the coast, including Mwnt, Penbryn, and Cwmtydu, and some of the picturesque towns and villages, such as Llangranog, Aberporth, and New Quay, are well worth a visit.
Surfing, windsurfing, landsurfing or kitesurfing - Ceredigion's coast is a favourite with experts and beginners alike, and Borth, in northern Ceredigion, is undoubtedly one of Wales' most popular beaches for watersports. Recently constructed artificial reefs at Borth were designed not only to protect the the village of Borth but also to enhance the surfing experience along the shore. Windsurfers enjoy excellent conditions too, with experts heading for the swell at Ynyslas.
South of Aberystwyth, Aberarth is popular with surfers, whilst the large, horseshoe shaped bay and sandy beach at New Quay are sheltered from rough winds, making it a great location for family watersports. In southern Ceredigion, on the Teifi estuary the conditions at Gwbert are good for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing too.
Sea kayaking is a perfect way to explore the Ceredigion heritage coast's hidden coves and sea caves and to spot wildlife including seals, dolphins and seabirds.
If you've never had a go, you can try your hand with Aber Adventures at Borth or New Quay Watersports Centre. A range of activities can be tackled at Llain Activity Centre, near New Quay, whilst Aberystwyth based company Colossal Activities offer a range of challenging adventure courses and experiences for families and individuals, as well as groups. Adventure Beyond in the Cardigan area can arrange activites for groups of all sizes.
With a strong heritage of seafaring it's no surprise that sailing is a popular sport along Ceredigion's coast, with clubs at the harbours of Aberaeron, New Quay and at Gwbert, near Cardigan on the Teifi Estuary. There are also visitor berths at Aberystwyth harbour marina. Sailing competitions start as early as February in New Quay, with a three day focus on the sport at the Cardigan Bay regatta in August, combining sailing races with on shore swimming and a range of fun activities. Regattas are also held at Aberaeron, Tresaith and Cardigan.
Sea rowing is also a popular sport, with seven clubs along the Ceredigion coast. Every two years, the clubs compete in a gruelling race between Ireland and Aberystwyth.
Inland, the Teifi river is a focus for canoeists thanks to a series of great rapids to ride, with Llandysul being a focus for events, including international slalom competitions, an annual river festival in August, and popular Teifi Tour in October.
Ciliau Aeron is located in the beautiful Aeron Valley, and is surrounded by rolling hills and forests which contribute so much to the area's stunning beauty.
Within a 5 minute walk of Tyglyn Vale you will find the Secret Garden of Tyglyn. This walled garden is a must for any guest to visit, and is a fantastic place to picnic and explore. Within it's walls you will find flower beds, and borders which contain many types of interesting plants: some of it's produce is left out for visitors to purchase by the gardeners when in season. There is also a play area for small children, and many places to sit and relax.
The River Aeron flows alongside the garden, and you can take a stroll along it,s banks and explore the area further.
Just 100 metres away from the cottage is The Tyglyn country hotel. This can by accessed by footpath directly from the estate, so there is no need to take the car if you fancy a tipple.
The pretty harbour town of Aberaeron, which has a good selection of restaurants, pubs, and independent shops is 3 miles away, and the holiday resort of New Quay, with its sandy beach, is 8 miles away.
The area surrounding Ciliau Aeron is particularly good for the keen angler. The River Aeron passes close to the cottage, and there are several commercial fishing lakes nearby. The beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay is just a 10 minute drive away.The expansive Aeron valley stretches from Aberaeron on the coast inland through Llangeitho to its source at Mynydd Bach.
Panteg Woods, along the banks of the Aeron is full of daffodils and bluebells in spring and a nearby detour leads to the oak and ash woodland trail at Allt y Graig.
A gentle 4km cycle and walking route follows the old railway line alongside the river Aeron with short sections of quiet country roads at each end. It winds its way from Aberaeron to the National Trust country estate and visitor attraction at Llanerchaeron.
Llanerchaeron is a rare example of an 18th-century Welsh minor gentry estate that has survived virtually intact. The furnished villa, designed in the 1790s, is the most complete example of the early work of the famous architect John Nash (who also designed Buckingham Palace!). It has its own service courtyard with dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house, and walled kitchen gardens with its produce for sale in season.
The estate's grounds, ornamental lake and parkland offer peaceful walks and picnic spots. Llanerchaeron's? Home Farm complex has an impressive range of traditional outbuildings and it is a working organic farm with Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.
At Talsarn, lively cattle and horse fairs were once held when the village was a halt on a well-worn drovers' route. Earlier still, in 1180, a Cistercian nunnery linked to Strata Florida abbey was founded at nearby at Llanllyr. Theatr Felinfach at Ystrad Aeron is the cultural focus of Welsh culture and language in Ceredigion.
