The ground floor luxury bathroom has a roll-top slipper bath, separate corner entry deluxe power shower, shaver socket etc.

Our area

If you can bring yourself to leave Gwynfryn, New Quay and the surrounding area have lots of facilities and activities to suit all ages. The picturesque sheltered harbour, award-winning beaches and narrow, terraced streets add to the charm of this friendly fishing village. Shops, pubs, restaurants and take-aways are all within a few minutes walk of Gwynfryn. Fishermen sell their freshly caught fish on the pier. There are some excellent seafood restaurants nearby too.

Boat trips as well as canoeing, fishing, windsurfing and sailing facilities available in the harbour. You could learn to sail whilst on holiday in Gwynfryn as courses are available nearby (Easter to October). Gwynfryn is also just a few minutes walk from the stunning coastal path with breathtaking views and stunning wildlife for you to enjoy. Bird's Rock, an SSSI, has an awesome range of seabirds for you to sit and watch and the bottle-nosed dolphin and Atlantic grey seal are also resident along the coastline here. There are miles of both inland and cliff walks which are well worth exploring and pony-trekking, horse riding, great golf courses, a dry ski-slope and fishing (both sea and lake/river) facilities are all available in the area.

Take time out to enjoy the truly magical county of Ceredigion. With stunning cliff and mountain scenery, hidden coves and harbours, quaint towns and villages, friendly locals and of course those absolutely fantastic sunsets.

Aberaeron is just 6 miles away, Aberystwyth, Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn within 20 miles. As well as some stunning coves and harbours to explore there are also wonderful attractions nearby too. Llanerchaeron, a recently renovated National Trust house and walled garden is a short drive away. The National Botanical Gardens of Wales, Aberglasney and the Centre for Alternative Technology are all within a pleasant hour's drive. So too are the city of St Davids with its stunning cathedral and Bishop's Palace, Tenby, Fishguard (take a day trip to Ireland), the Preseli and Cambrian Mountains and much, much more.
