    “Fabulous location and accommodation and would definitely recommend it.”

    However some small issues such as only one toothbrush beaker and some of the kitchen utensils dirty so needed to wash them before using. Also if you really want to watch tv the signal was very poor so unable to watch it. However this didn’t bother us as we don’t miss the tv when on holiday. And these small issues certainly wouldn’t stop us from booking here again. Aberporth is so beautiful and a great base for some beautiful coastal walks. The view from the railway carriage was wonderful ...

The property

This stylish conversion of an Edwardian railway carriage retains its original charm while hitting all the right notes on contemporary comfort.

There are 180 degree sea views over Cardigan Bay from the stunning cliff top location, with frequent sightings of resident bottlenose dolphins and seals.

The carriage is just moments from Aberporth's sandy beach, the Ceredigion Coast Path and local pubs, shops and places to eat.

Tresaith, Llangrannog, Cwmtydu, New Quay, Cardigan and Aberaeron are all close by, as are the two famous National Trust beaches of Mwnt and Penbryn.

On a clear day you can see all the way to Snowdon and North Wales.

This is a great spot for bird watching, with many sea birds including oyster catchers, gannets, cormorants and kittiwakes, as well as kestrels and red kites to be seen.

The main rooms enjoy wonderful views over the sea and to the rear, over the orchard garden.

You will enjoy all the comforts of the snug carriage, but you will take away with you the memories of the spectacular location.

About the location

ABERPORTH

Tresaith 1 mile; Penbryn 3 miles; Llangrannog 5.5 miles; Cardigan 7 miles; Poppit Sands 8.5 miles; New Quay 15 miles.

Aberporth is a small town that sits on the southern edge of Cardigan Bay in Ceredigion, renowned for it's fabulous beaches that attract visitors, all year round. There are two beaches that sit between the rocky headlands of Trecregyn and Fathgarreg, separated by a smaller rocky outcrop. Uniquely, at low tide they interlink, but at high tide, they create individual beaches and create great rock pools for the children to play in and explore. Small boats, canoes, and kayaks can easily be launched from the north beach, while the south beach lends itself beautifully for a spot of sunbathing. Close to the beaches, there is a small seaside café, fish and chip shop, and a friendly pub serving good food and drinks. In the village itself, there is a range of shops and takeaway stores. Nestled directly on the famous Wales Coast Path, between the towns of Cardigan in the south, and Llangrannog and New Quay to the north, it is a great base for exploring this glorious stretch of coastline. Venture to Cardigan and discover the town’s many shops, tea rooms, restaurants, pubs, and bustling markets. Visit the nearby themed farm park, spot dolphins from the coastal path, or take a boat trip for the chance to see them up close! Aberporth is a great base for exploring this wonderful part of West Wales, with something to do for all the family.
