About LlanborthOn 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 and a further kingsize which can also be a twin bedroom 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.
