About the home
Take a step back in time as you enjoy this large quirky terraced house which overlooks Borth beach and has sea views from many of the rooms.
The owners have used the 1920's/40's as the theme for their careful renovation and incorporated many items of historical interest whilst providing the modern comforts we all know and love.
Borth beach is on the Cardigan Bay coast between the Dyfi estuary and the town of Aberystwyth stretching almost three miles to Ynyslas, it is excellent for swimming and surfing. The town has several cafes, pubs and small shops.

The West Wales / Pembrokeshire / Ceredigion region
Borth's award-winning beach is of a particularly shallow gradient but many are fooled into thinking the steep pebble bank visible at high tide is representative of the ebb-tide scenario. Nothing could be further from the truth! Because of its shallow waters, Borth's beach is particularly popular with sailboard enthusiasts and families with younger children
The Aberystwyth / Borth area
Borth's main attraction to visitors is its wonderful long beach of golden sand and shingle, which stretches for over two miles north to south. At the northern end of this superb beach is the impressive sand dune system of the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve, also known as the Dyfi National Nature Reserve, which juts out halfway across the mouth of the Dovey Estuary, enclosing a sheltered, boat-user's haven, or even heaven, behind it.
Borth's award-winning beach is the longest in Ceredigion and has a particularly shallow gradient, making it especially popular with families with younger children and sailboard enthusiasts. The tide goes out a long way, so its shallow waters are great for the little ones to paddle in and splash about.
At the southern end of this wonderful beach, an ancient submerged forest is exposed by the ebbing tide. Welsh legend has it that the trunks of and tree stumps of old forests long hidden under sand and sea, are the remains of the land of Cantre'r Gwaelod, which disappeared under the waves of Cardigan Bay, long ago.

We rented this house with our grown up children and their partners. It is an unusual place - quirky furnishings and every room has something unusual to look at. However, it is well worth a visit. The house is huge and could easily sleep 10+ people in its many bedrooms. The kitchen has everything you could need (although the cooker is a tad bit on the small side). The views out the back are stunning and there is a lovely patio to sit on (if the weather is ammenable). We had a lovely week with family and were genuinely sad to pack up and leave. The ONLY thing we would warn prospective visitors is that the house is not centrally heated so pack LOTS of jumpers and wooly socks if you visit in February as we did. However, in every other respect this is a great place to stay!
