About Llanborth

On the stunning Cardigan coast in undiscovered West Wales, charming Llanborth Farmhouse is just down the lane from a beautiful unspoilt beach.

A short distance from Penbryn beach, one of the area’s best-kept secrets, Llanborth welcomes families, outdoor lovers and walkers. Step onto the all-Wales coastal path from the cottage door, and fall in love with this stretch of coastline which offers sweeping seascapes, rugged cliffs, tucked-away beaches and opportunities for dolphin-spotting. 

Set in a little farming hamlet of Penbryn, just 400 metres up from the beach, your seaside escape starts when you open the door to this beautiful dog-friendly Victorian cottage, recently completely renovated in contemporary tones with a nod to the stunning coastal setting. Inside, the living room, kitchen, dining room and toilet are on the ground floor and upstairs you’ll find the master with ensuite, a further double/twin and the main bathroom. The second floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom too. Outside there are reserved parking spaces in front of the cottage, with an enclosed garden to the front and a grassed area to the side. There’s also a patio table and chairs, great if the evenings are balmy and you want to stay outdoors.

From the cottage, head down the road to the beach or take the scenic route through the woods. There’s also a cafe opposite, open until 5pm (open in the spring and summer months). This area is all about the coast though, so whether you’re walking, relaxing on a beach or looking for some adrenaline-fuelled water activities you’ll be spoilt for choice. For nearby sand-between-your-toes based beach encounters, try surfer’s favourite Llangrannog; sandy, sheltered Mwnt or the wide open Poppit Sands, popular with all sorts of activity-lovers like kite boarders.

Cardigan is the nearest town, although there’s plenty to explore along the coastline in both directions from the cottage, if you head south into the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park to places like the pretty cathedral city of St Davids, coastal village of Solva, or Abereiddy with its Blue Lagoon (all about an hour away by car). Or adventure northwards towards the vibrant ancient market town of Aberystwyth, or a little further to the sand dunes of nearby Ynyslas (also a National Nature Reserve). Break up the journey by stopping halfway at the self-sufficient National Trust Llanerchaeron estate, with its Georgian villa, walled gardens, farm and lake.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
