The property

‘Sea the Stars’ (named after the famous racehorse), provides a unique opportunity to stay in a vintage 1969 Ford Series D Horse Lorry converted to a very high standard.

The accommodation provides visitors with a glamping experience with home comforts benefits from solar power in addition to mains electric.

What sets this property apart is its location, with truly stunning uninterrupted sea views and sunsets across Cardigan Bay experienced from the tail gate patio of the lorry.

The horse lorry is sited on a smallholding located between the fishing village of New Quay and the smugglers cove of Cwm Tydu.

It’s an ideal location for walkers as there is direct access to the beautiful Ceredigion Coast Path from where the famous resident Cardigan Bay dolphins can often be seen.

Within a short walk from the lorry there are 2 beaches (only accessible on foot) and the famous Bird’s Rock.

Although in a relatively secluded location, it is within easy reach of other Ceredigion beaches such as Llangrannog and the National Trust beaches of Mwnt and Penbryn.

Sea the Stars is a unique experience for your holiday.

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.
