Have you ever stayed in a Victorian primary school loo block? There’s always a first for everything and here at The Wanderlist we are proud to present this fabulously unique property. A thoughtfully planned studio which is the perfect getaway for two. Situated only two miles away from the stunning Ceredigion coast, Ty Bach makes a fantastic base from which you can explore the local area.
Treat yourself and escape to this lovely, compact, coastal retreat. Ty Bach literally translates to tiny house in Welsh, however don’t be fooled by the size. This wonderful studio has everything you need for a relaxing coastal getaway. Spend your days exploring the beautiful, secluded beaches only accessible by foot and then in the evenings rest your head in your own Ty Bach.
Featuring stylish furnishings throughout, this is a great place to rest and unwind. A super comfy day bed, which can be converted into a king-size bed or two single beds, awaits your tired legs. A stylish kitchen area with microwave, toaster, sandwich maker, fridge and sink provide all the essentials for whipping up a simple breakfast or tasty snacks. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk and bread are provided. Ty Bach also has a beautifully designed bathroom with a walk-in shower, stunning white tiles and hexagonal flooring. A warm towel rail and underfloor heating will ensure you are nice and cosy. Fluffy towels and soft bed linen are all provided.
Ty Bach sits within its own fenced area within the grounds of the owners home. Featuring its own private courtyard area, perfect to sit out in the summer evenings. With adventurists in mind, just outside Ty Bach there is a handy copper shower (cold water only) to wash off those sandy wetsuits or muddy boots. Storage for bikes and boards is also provided so your beloved sports gear also has a place to stay.
Located in the quintessential village of Caerwedros, Ty Bach is less than 2 miles from a gorgeous stretch of the Ceredigion coastal path and some ‘secret’ beaches. Enjoy a stroll from Ty Bach to the coast, either across the headland or through a beautiful woodland valley with waterfalls and meadows managed by the National Trust.
The retreat is also nearby to two secret coves only accessible on foot, ask your host Claire for more information. The slightly more well known beach of Cwmtydu is also close by. Then just a short drive away are other numerous beaches awaiting your footprints; such as Mwnt, Aberporth, Penbryn, New Quay, Cei Bach or Poppit Sands.
The popular coastal villages of New Quay and Llangrannog are only a few miles away and are great for spending your days. New Quay is a great place to spot some dolphins, who frequent on a daily basis in the summer months. Wildlife spotting boat trips run regularly in the warmer months. If you fancy taking to the water, Cardigan Bay Watersports centre at New Quay is a great place to start. The centre offers lessons or the hire of paddleboards, kayaks and more. Slightly further afield, the pretty Georgian fishing harbour of Aberaeron is just up the A487. And a 40 minute drive will bring guests to the traditional Victorian seaside and university town of Aberystwyth.
Foodies will enjoy the plethora of nearby eateries to indulge in. You are likely to find Ty Bach owners Claire and Rob at the local pizzeria, PizzaTipi, which serves delicious handmade (you guessed it!) pizzas! New Quay also has many restaurants and take-away’s to enjoy such as the Pepper Pot Bar and Grill and The Lime Crab. As well as a fabulous ice cream parlour called Creme Pen Cei, which serves up numerous inventive and delicious flavours of handmade ice cream. And owner Claire highly recommends SY23 Restaurant and it’s outdoor dining space SY23 y sgwar if you venture to Aberystwyth.
