Fern Cottage

This pretty former fisherman’s cottage is tucked alongside similar properties, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the sandy beach of Aberporth, a thriving seaside village on the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline. This semi-detached cottage is a perfect base for families or friends looking to enjoy the benefits of a traditional seaside holiday, with plenty of nearby activities and miles of coastline to explore. Set over two floors with three bedrooms, there is also a well-equipped galley kitchen and a spacious sitting room with everything you need to make the most of the dining area, with comfy seating and a cosy woodburner. Outside, you can sit in the pretty enclosed garden with distant sea views across the garden, relax on the patio and enjoy watching the sky change colour as the sun sets over the horizon. The Wales Coast Path passes through the thriving village and opens up fabulous walking along sandy beaches such as the National Trust’s Penbryn, rocky coves of Llangrannog and local fishing villages of Tresaith. You are ideally placed to explore the wonderful coastline of Cardigan Bay with a variety of beaches a short distance away, including Mwnt with its iconic white chapel.
