    “This remote cottage is the ideal place to "get away from it all".”

    The cottage was extremely comfortable and equipped to the highest standard. Would not hesitate to recommend to others provided the isolation would not be a problem.

The property

New Quay 5 miles.

Deep in the countryside down a private lane you will find Barley Cottage, ready to welcome you to an unhurried restful stay.

As you round the corner you will enter a spacious courtyard with plenty of off road parking, then follow the sign through a gate onto a charming patio area where you will be able to relax and unwind.

Entrance to the cottage is through a sun room where a comfy sofa invites you to take your ease, curl up with a good book enveloped in the warmth of the sunlight streaming through the picture windows.

A quaint stable door takes you through into the main living space, here you will find a unique handcrafted, well equipped kitchen area perfect for preparing that special dinner for two to enjoy in the charming dining area.

Settle in for the evening and enjoy your experience of lighting the rustic wood burner and sink into the inviting cozy sitting area created especially for you to unwind after your days’ activities.

Upstairs you will find an inviting characterful double bedroom with panoramic views over the countryside to feast your eyes on, with an ensuite spacious shower, the window seat is a favourite spot to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee while watching the red kites soar over the fields.

If you’re heading out for the day, then we suggest you make your way over to the coast at New Quay to watch the dolphins in the bay from the harbour wall or from a boat trip, and enjoy tasting the local cuisine from fish and chips to gourmet meals.

If you love being active then there is safe swimming and a watersports centre for sailing, kayaking or paddle boarding down on the beachfront, or take a fishing trip to catch your tea.

The colourful Georgian town of Aberaeron is only a short distance away, here you will find a good range of artisan cafes, craft shops, boutiques, an organic food shop, bookshop and local butcher.

Enjoy your time browsing before you stop to experience the local honey ice cream at the Hive on the Quay and stroll along the harbour and promenade enjoying the boats as they bob on the sparkly water when the tide is in.

Watching the sun go down here is a real pleasure and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

Other local attractions nearby include National Trust's Llanerchaeron Estate where you can visit a fabulous farm and meet the Llanwenog sheep and Welsh pigs, before admiring the historic Walled Garden of Llanerchaeron which has been producing fruit and vegetables for over 200 years.

Visit the enchanting coves of Cwmtudu, LLangrannog, Penbryn and Mwnt, the hidden treasures of the West Wales coast, and enjoy our beautiful rugged Coast Path before returning to a good night's sleep and your log burner for the evenings.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
