This lovely, semi-detached cottage, Awel Aeron, is located on the edge of Aberaeron in Ceredigion.
The cottage is ideal for family-friendly accommodation in Wales, as it is close to the beach and local attractions, as well as being well-equipped for self-catering holidays.
For a stress-free arrival, find off-road parking for two cars; you'll be greeted by a traditional Georgian-style holiday home with a pastel pink exterior.
Freshen up in the convenient cloakroom before heading into the contemporary kitchen/diner with shaker-style, granite units to rustle up your best home-cooked meals.
Before meeting around the dining table to plan your travels over a beautiful family supper, keep the chef company at the breakfast bar for two.
Allow the dishwasher to handle the dirty work as you relax in the sitting room with a traditional Welsh blanket and a crackling woodburner nearby for added comfort!
Throw towels and wetsuits in the washer/dryer in the utility room after a day at the beach, then climb the stairs for a peaceful soak in the bath.
Choose between one of the double rooms, or claim the master double with its own en-suite shower room, all of which have been charmingly decorated with Welsh blankets, local artwork and ample storage space!
Awel Aeron has a great garden space to dine alfresco with a barbecue, outdoor seats, and a hot tub for the ultimate de-stress; the garden is totally enclosed for little ones to play and picnic on the lawn area throughout the summer months!
Aberaeron Beach, a scenic pebble beach where you can sit and listen to the waves, is a short walk away; there are lots of shops, cafés, and bars to accommodate the whole family.
A short drive inland will take you to the beautifully restored 18th century National Trust run Llanerachaeron estate, where an exquisite walled garden and an ornamental lake offer a truly idyllic setting for a stroll.
Further up the coast, Aberystwyth, a lively coastal town, offers plenty of activities such as climbing Constitution Hill up the cliff railway to view the Camera Obscura, before strolling along the promenade towards The Royal Pier and past the Old College towards Aberystwyth Castle, which is perched spectacularly on the headland overlooking the Irish Sea.
Take a ride on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to the stunning Devils Bridge Falls, for an incredible picturesque journey over rolling hills and woodland, or bring your bikes and join The Rheidol Trail, a well-marked 15-mile trail that runs from Aberystwyth Harbour to Devil's Bridge across the stunning Rheidol Valley!
Then on your way back to your Aberaeron base, call in at Strata Florida in Pontrhydfendigaid near Tregaron to view the remains of one of the earliest Cistercian monasteries, to tap deep into Welsh history and culture.
Continue this Welsh odyssey down the coast in Cardigan, the home to a 12th-century riverfront castle which was the birthplace of the Welsh Eisteddfod in 1176.
Awel Aeron is a great place to stay for a family-friendly holiday in Wales.
