“A lovely quirky house on the beach and shops, chippy and pubs all within reach on the same road.”
Lovely relaxing and watching the sea, it was so quiet. So authentic making up the coal fire . Would definitely stay again
Lovely relaxing and watching the sea, it was so quiet. So authentic making up the coal fire . Would definitely stay again- Tina, October 2021
“Great quirky cottage filled with items from a bygone era, loved exploring it - something new to see in every room.”
The old range in the kitchen was great too and we spent cosy evenings in front of it. Being a stones throw from the beach was great for the view and watching lovely sunsets, the dog loved it too although crossing the stones to get to the beach was somewhat tricky. Lovely village and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Short train ride to Aberystwyth for shops and attractions was a restful way to explore the town.- Susan, October 2021
“The house itself was quirky which we expected and liked but the standard of cleanliness was poor and the kitchen equipment was also lacking.”
Position on the beach wonderful- Rowena, September 2021
“Images shown on Sykes do not match with current interior.”
There is a huge amount of unnecessary clutter in this house. It felt more like a cross between an antiques centre, a living museum and a grand father's garden shed than a holiday home. There are some super, quirky features and some interesting artefacts and photographs on display, that reflect the history of the house. Sadly, this is overshadowed by the overwhelming quantity of random 'stuff' that leaves very little room for you to place your own belongings and make this place feel like a home (drawer filled door knobs, cabinet filled with decorating materials, master bedroom drawers filled with bedding, multiple cleaning products in cupboards etc) With enough beds for 7, there also needs to be at least one place in the property where all guests can congregate. We were only able to sit 5 in the sitting room and 6 at the dining table. With some considered editing, reorganisation and an appreciation that guests need room to unpack and feel like they're home, this place could really capture your heart. The beach front setting, stunning sunsets over the bay and regular dolphin sightings were magical.- Ruth, May 2021
“We loved Neptune house.”
It was a step back in time for myself and my husband. So many things to see from times gone by. In todays modern world it was a welcome change. The log fire was enjoyed every night in the front room by myself and my husband, with no TV and it was not missed. The setting on the beach was beautiful. Even got to Seal watch. Don't worry there's a few modern luxuries. TV in back lounges, washing machine and drier, cooker, and a fridge etc. I would have liked to have had WiFi in the house. Could barely get a signal in the house. The shower was a bit small for me, but apart from that I loved everything about Neptune, we all did, even the dog. Would definitely go back again and we love Borth also. Peaceful little town, we've been a few times to now. Thanks for a relaxing holiday where we all felt totally chilled out.- Elizabeth, October 2020
“This feedback is perhaps a little biased.”
Mike and Jacque are friends of ours and have rented Neptune to us a lot over the years before you took it on. We love the place even with all Mike’ s quirkiness.- Ian, August 2020
“This is an eclectic property which backs directly onto the pebble beach at Borth so perfect in terms of location if you wish to explore the area.”
We expected Neptune House to take us back in time but important also to be prepared that the logistics of a party with 4 adults and 3 children were challenging in terms of space around the kitchen table and sufficient glassware etc particularly in inclement weather. It was also strange to receive a note through the door to vacate the property an hour earlier than we had been told when booking even with the COVID-19 revisions!- Sophie, August 2020
Thank you for your feedback. I will reassess the quantity of glassware etc currently provided. There is a larger table in the dining room which will comfortably seat 7. Apologies that you were mistakenly asked to vacate the property an hour earlier. Property Owner
“Lovely cottage in a fantastic location.”
The decor was unusual to say the least and we loved it all. I would recommend this property to any family who would like something a little different. Thanks for sharing this gem. The Follon family- Christopher, August 2020

Take a step back in time as you enjoy this large, quirky, retro-styled terraced house which overlooks Cardigan Bay's Borth beach and has sea views from many of the rooms.
The owners have used the 1920s to 1950s as the theme for their careful renovation and incorporated many items of historical interest.
Borth beach is on the Cardigan Bay coast between the Dyfi estuary and the town of Aberystwyth, stretching almost three miles to Ynyslas and is excellent for swimming and surfing.
The town has several cafes, pubs and small shops.
