The Penny Black
About the home
You are right in the midst of stunning coastal scenery with access to the beach, the sea and Ceredigion’s Heritage Coast.
This ground floor apartment at The Old Post Office boasts a prime location in the heart of Aberporth: just grab your bucket and spade and walk onto the beach! The two sheltered Blue Flag sandy beaches of Aberporth make this seaside village one of Ceredigion’s favourite holiday destinations. At low tide, rock pools are exposed and seals, dolphins and otters can often be seen close to shore. The coastal path passes just by The Penny Black providing wonderful walks passing sandy beaches, towering cliffs and rocky headlands.

The West Wales / Pembrokeshire / Ceredigion region
This area of West Wales includes part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park: the length of coast between Strumble Head to the west of Fishguard and the Teifi estuary near Cardigan, and inland, the craggy slopes of the Preseli Mountains.
Near the pretty resort of Newport, you will find Celtic heritage sites such as Castell Henllys, the reconstructed Iron Age hillfort, Pentre Ifan, one of the finest megalithic burial chambers in Britain, and on Carn Ingli mountain, the remnants of a hillfort with stunning panoramic views across the sea.
There are sandy beaches at Newport and Poppit. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the Preselis offer a choice of walks amidst breathtaking scenery. Free coastal bus services in the high season allow you to walk the coastal path without having to double back. The quiet country lanes provide safe family cycling routes. Excellent fishing is available in the Teifi and Nevern rivers as well as sea fishing from boats or off the rocks and beaches. The National Park runs an extensive programme of activities and events for both adults and children.
There are charming places to visit such as Nevern village with its legendary churchyard, Newport with its friendly village atmosphere and wildlife-rich estuary, as well as the larger Fishguard, a ferry port offering the opportunity of a day trip to Ireland.
The Aberporth area
The two sheltered Blue Flag sandy beaches of Aberporth make this seaside village one of Ceredigion’s favourite holiday destinations. At low tide, rock pools are exposed and seals, dolphins and otters can often be seen close to shore. The coastal path passes just by The Old Post Office providing wonderful walks passing sandy beaches, towering cliffs and rocky headlands.
With the village amenities within walking distance - including the local store, two pubs serving food and two takeaway restaurants - you need hardly leave Aberporth! However, with so many nearby places to visit you’ll be tempted: the area has numerous tourist attractions and the apartment’s central location allows for day trips exploring the rest of Cardigan Bay and Pembrokeshire. But no need to buy postcards: just take photos of the gorgeous views from the balcony and add ‘Wish you were here?’!

We stayed at the Penny Black for a short break. It was a lovely apartment, beautifully presented and maintained. Everything had been thought of. Comfortable and warm. Ideal location, pub, cafe and fish&chip shop next door, beach over the road and coastal path, what more do you need. If I was going to holiday in Aberporth again, I wouldn`t think of staying anywhere else.

We stayed at the Penny Black for two nights and it was so relaxing and fun that we cant wait to return.
It is beautifully decorated, exceptionally comfortable and very welll appointed with all you could possibly need.
Being just across the road from the beach makes it in ideal bucket and spade holiday. Aberporth beach is gorgeous and sitting eating breakfast while watching the dogs play on the beach was wonderful.
Sam and Jeff are very attentive hosts who ensure all your needs are met and we can't wait for the Summer holidays to come around so we can stay in this little slice of heaven.
