Property code: 81502

Charming first-floor apartment suitable for a couple, situated above a shop in the pretty town of New Quay on the West Wales coast, just a short walk from one of the town's two sandy beaches.

This quirky romantic bolthole for two, in the idyllic coastal town of New Quay, is the perfect base for exploring the breathtaking Cardigan Bay. Wander along the town’s sandy shores, watch dolphins playing beyond the harbour wall or take a boat trip along the fascinating heritage coast. The vibrant university town of Aberystwyth (24 miles) makes a great day out, with a plethora of delicious eateries and independent shops to browse. Head home to the decked veranda and enjoy drinks in the sun.

Take the stairs to the decked veranda of this unique property and enter the gorgeous open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The property is decorated in a seafaring theme, with a range of intriguing nautical accessories creating a truly unique backdrop for your holiday. The stylish bedroom – designed to look like a ship’s cabin – is absolutely beautiful and when you wake up, you’ll be greeted with stunning sea views, inspiring you to get out and explore. After a cosy dinner for two at the dining table, head out onto the veranda for a little sundowner and the chance to reminisce about your day.

It’s easy to while away the hours pottering around New Quay. Soak up the holiday atmosphere with a stroll along the beach and around the pretty harbour, following in the footsteps of Dylan Thomas, who once inhabited the town. Hop on one of the many boats that depart from the harbour for a magical wildlife-watching trip along the coast, looking for dolphins playing in the water and seals basking in the sunshine. From New Quay, it’s easy to visit the vibrant town of Cardigan (21 miles). Full of history, this fascinating town boasts a fabulously restored Norman castle, stunning river walks and a colourful high street with numerous independent boutiques and galleries.

Beautiful location. Clean cabin with very creaky flooring, high bed and bath making it difficult for those not agile. Nice sunny balcony to escape the creaky floor. Just around the corner from the beach and plenty eating out facilities on your doorstep and local shops.

A perfect seaside cottage in a great location. We loved our stay in the Captains Cabin, so well set up with everything you could possibly need and in a fantastic location near to the beach and quay and lots of lovely places to eat. You can hear the sound of the sea from bed, what more could you ask for.
