This property is situated just a short walk away from the stunning beach at Mwnt on Wales’ Cardigan Bay. This secluded beach is maintained by the National Trust and is not only a beautiful spot to enjoy swimming and sunbathing, but also offers direct access onto the Cardigan Bay Coast Path, and is a brilliant location for spotting the bottlenose dolphins which congregate around the bay. In summer, visitors can even join National Trust rangers on a dolphin spotting boat trip, increasing the chances of seeing these magnificent creatures. Just a few miles south-west of the property, the historic town of Cardigan is a great place for day trips, especially for those with an interest in history, who will relish the opportunity to visit the town’s 11th century castle.

On arrival at this detached property, the first room that guests will come to is the welcoming lounge which offers sofa seating, a TV, and Blu-ray player. The kitchen/diner opens onto the terrace and enjoys fantastic sea views, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. One of the property’s bedrooms can also be found on the ground floor, a double room with its own TV, next to which there is a contemporary wet room with shower and WC. Two further bedrooms can be found upstairs on the first floor, both of which also boast their own TV. The first of these is a dual-aspect king-size room with views to the sea, whilst the third bedroom is a pleasant twin room. The bathroom is also located on the first floor and offers a shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, the property enjoys an enclosed shingled terrace and garden area with furniture and a BBQ, which is the perfect place for sitting back and enjoying the peaceful surroundings and the breath-taking panoramic bay views. .

Very remote location with very narrow lanes. But we wanted that so we're very happy. Great views. Cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. Owner left some base provisions milk tea coffee plus lovely cake. Small local Mwnt beach just 5 mins walk away. Good walking routes along coast. Cardigan was only 20 mins drive away. Would recommend New QRead moreuay as a place to visit as well. Hide

The place is amazing! You get sea views from every window in the property. The cottage in itself was lovely, very spacious, very comfortable and homely. The place is located a short (about 10 mins) drive from the nearest town/ shop/ pub, the drive is a single track road, so watch out for tractors, but this did not bothered us at all. If you are a kRead moreeen walker there is plenty of coastal paths to explore and the views are incredible. Hide

Had a lovely break at The Old Parlour. Fabulous house with enclosed garden and gorgeous views.

We loved The Old Parlour! Perfectly located on the stunning Cardigan Coastline, it ticked every box and more for our week away with puppy. Peaceful and historic, we were within walking distance of Mwnt National Trust, where you can dolphin spot and walk the beach and only 15 mins from Cardigan in the car. Previously part of the farm, The Old ParlouRead morer has undergone a beautiful conversion combining coastal decor with modern amenities, everything you need for a family holiday. Highly recommend.
