    “Hello - We had a lovely time at Dolwylan Cottage.”

    Perfectly happy with our stay.

    Perfectly happy with our stay. If are your looking for issues to improve the outdoor chairs look a bit old and not too sturdy. Also the rubbish arrangements were clear enough but we only found the one official council bin bag for the recycling. Once we'd put it out for collection on Wednesday we needed to buy our own for the remainder of the week. Do the council only supply /collect 1 bag per week ? Thanks, Dave.

    - Dave, July 2022

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you had a good week. This is our first year and we continually look to improve the facilities at Dolwylan; an upgrade to the garden furniture is on the list. There should be an ample supply of bin bags under the sink; the council do supply additional bags but these need to be collected. We will add this information to our Welcome letter. Property Owner

With sea views, off-road parking, and a lovely garden, this holiday home is ideal for families or groups of friends looking to get away to the coast.

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.

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.
