    “It is a stunning cottage in a fantastic location.”

    We fell in love with it before we opened the door. It has everything you need for a short break or a full holiday. The only thing we found missing was either a clothes airer or a small washing line would of been great. Have already recommended to family and friends.

    Claire, Thank you for your review of the Barn. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The clothes dryer is stored under the stairs but you managed with chairs and the large'drying area' under the porch. We plan to put up an extendable washing line which will be easier for guests to find and to use, and look forward to welcoming you back, with family and friends. Property Owner

The property

This characterful one-bedroom cottage, Dolwylan Barn, can be found near the Welsh coast at Cwmtydu.

Dolwylan Barn lies within a smallholding of 12 acres with majestic coastal views and is located just 300 metres from the quiet coastal cove of Cwmtydu.

Well decorated with a contemporary touch, this cosy cottage has vaulted ceilings upstairs, exposed stone walling and is the perfect place for a romantic getaway for two.

Park your car alongside and make your way towards this delightfully converted barn to begin your staycation.

When you arrive, you'll be greeted with a light and spacious kitchen/diner, beautifully-appointed with those high ceilings and a lovely pastel colour scheme.

Pop open a bottle of wine and set the table for a romantic meal for two as the chef gets to work, or why not enjoy meals outside in the garden during the summer months, where you can gaze out over the glistening waters of the sea in the distance.

After another tiring day of adventure, unwind in the sitting room, with a classic movie on the screen and the crackle of the wood burning stove nearby.

The ground floor is completed by a contemporary shower room, while a second shower room and a well-presented king-size bedroom are located on the first floor.

Whisk your better half away on an unforgettable retreat with a stay at Dolwylan Barn.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref: 1066980, together sleeping six guests

Dolwylan Cottage & Barn

These charming properties rest near the picture-perfect coast of New Quay, Mid Wales and consist of a one-bedroom barn and a two-bedroom cottage. Situated in Cwmtydu, the properties make a lovely base for exploring Wales, or even as an escape to relax and unwind in the fresh sea air. With off-road parking, sea views and character features, these pet-friendly holiday homes are a superb choice for a family break or friends sharing. Take advantage of your closeness to the glorious Welsh coastline by walking the Ceredigion Coast Path; start off by heading down the short walk to Cwmtydu, a delightful little shingle beach with stream which was once a smugglers cove. Continue along the Coast Path, soaking in the spectacular sights as you explore the stunning coastline up towards New Quay and down towards Llangrannog and Penbryn beaches which have been included in the Sunday Times' 2022 selection of the 50 best beaches in the UK; the options are truly limitless! At the end of an action-packed day, take a break from cooking by indulging in some fish and chips at New Quay or a spot of pub fare at The Ship in Llangrannog or the Ship Inn at Tresaith! For the adventurous, try the white water canoeing at Llandysul or perhaps a more leisurely paddle further downstream on the River Teifi at Cilgerran. Those looking for a more leisurely time can take in the Georgian delights of coastal Aberaeron and then travel inland to tour the 18th century estate of Llanerchaeron, preserved by the National Trust, where an exquisite walled garden and an ornamental lake offer a truly idyllic setting for a stroll. Further afield, Cardigan offers a visit to its Castle which hosted the first Welsh Eisteddfod in 1176, along with a range of independent shops, galleries, cafes, pubs, supermarkets, a leisure centre/swimming pool and a fantastic cinema at Theatr Mwldan. Enjoy a coastal break with loved ones at the Dolwylan Cottage & Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Lampeter 12 miles; Cardigan 20 miles; Aberystwyth 24 miles.

This delightful seaside town is one of the most popular holiday resorts all year round, and it is easy to see why when you stroll along the sea edge and enjoy the beautiful views. The lovely range of gift shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs offer all you need, while boat trips are a wonderful opportunity to spot the playful dolphins, seals and other rare animals and birds that inhabit the bay's sheltering waters. For the hands-on members of your party why not try sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, and power boating with expert tuition available? The famous poet, Dylan Thomas, penned many works with inspiration in New Quay including "Quite Early One Morning" and you can follow the Dylan Thomas trail around the town. Just 7 miles away is Aberaeron, a lively Georgian harbour town with multi-coloured cottages and a good selection of restaurants and inns. This wonderful area of Wales not only has stunning sandy beaches, but also beautiful countryside walks and the outstanding Devil's Bridge is world-renowned for the three bridges, the narrow gauge steam railway and the cascading waterfalls. A perfect base for wonderful holidays, all year round.
