Named in The Times Top 50 Cottages and No 1 in their Top 10 Quirky Cottages & Beach Houses (2013)
"Kids will love sleeping in this 1950’s pleasure cruiser on the Cardigan Coast. The snug wood-panelled interior is a delight with padded seating (which converts to two single beds for children). A double bed in the front of the boat has a glass dome for stargazing. Cook, eat and wash in a neighbouring building." Liz Bird for The Times
This must be our quirkiest UTT property yet! Land-locked in a little private paddock with lovely views to the sea, this 1950's pleasure launch is a must for landlubbers and would-be sea-faring folks alike - a boat in a field overlooking the sea!
This unspoiled area is little touched by tourism. You have walking and cycling directly on your doorstep, the Ceredigion Coastal path and above you a wooded valley - with all of its incredible flora and fauna and with the opportunity to spot dolphin and seals from the local beaches, which are just fifteen minutes' drive away.One beach (NB steep access) is even closer, just down from the boat and you can often get it to yourself, even on summer days.
Being so close to nature and the wildlife you cannot help but feel a genuine sense of peace and relaxation here within your own very special private paradise. See new gallery here
Privately located with your own kitchen, bathroom, sitting and dining area with a comfy double bed settee in the adjacent converted little barn, this is the ultimate 'boating on dry land' holiday (ie. no sea sickness!). The Guardian stayed in winter and loved it, producing this independent review.
