Charming first-floor apartment suitable for a couple, situated behind 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 property is in the town of New Quay, a pretty seaside town on the West Wales coast. A quieter alternative to some of the bigger resorts such as Aberystwyth, New Quay is a quaint town where colourful Georgian houses line the seafront and visitors have a choice of two splendid beaches, both of which offer plenty of sandy space to relax. There is a good choice of shops, cafes, and restaurants and local amenities in the town, as well as several interesting attractions, including dolphin-spotting boat trips, a marine centre, and the Dylan Thomas Trail which allows visitors to follow in the footsteps of Wales' best-loved poet who once lived in the town. (Please check admittance for the various attractions).

Approach this property via a set of stairs that lead from the pavement outside; they cross a decked veranda before coming to the front door which opens directly into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Guests will easily find everything they will need here to cook up a storm in the kitchen area, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and a washing machine is also provided. Moving past the kitchen to the lounge area, there are comfortable sofas from which to enjoy your favourite programmes on the TV. There is ample storage in the lounge with a good-size storage cupboard. The bedroom lies at the far end of the property and is an attractive double room with storage, and offers stunning sea views; a wonderful way to wake up. There is also a bathroom which has a shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, there is a wide decked veranda. The owners have thoughtfully provided garden furniture, making it easy to enjoy al fresco drinks on a sunny afternoon, or as the sun goes down. There are public car parks available nearby (charges apply).

Very lovely place and very clever how it's been made to look like a ship's cabin. Well worth the money and very clean. Well worth going to this cottage.

This place is a haven with the lovely touch of feeling like you are in a ships cabin and the sit out area is a sun trap. The location is prime for access to local shops and bars/restaurants, even though you are close to everything you don't hear much noise. The hosts were easy to deal with and very welcoming.

What a wonderful little holiday retreat, right in the center of New Quay, highly recomended. The decor is fab, it was clean, tidy and cosy. The floors do creak, but, I think it adds to the Captains Cabin ambience. You also have to be aware that it is above a working shop, (it didnt bother us ) and next to a wine bar, but everything was quiet by 9pmRead more, it was just perfect. Thank you x Hide

We loved the cottage. Very quirky yet cosy. Great position in the centre of town, near to all the lovely restaurants, pubs and shops. The seating area on the balcony was fantastic, it was basked in sun all day. We spent several hours out there playing cards over a bottle of wine.
