about the property

Cae Bach

Cae Bach is located high in a rural spot above Aberystwyth.  This lovely cottage for two has the best of both worlds! Tucked away along a private track it has far reaching views over its own valley to sea - the views are amazing!  However, a 5 minute walk will take you onto the Promenade in the heart of the bustling University town of Aberystwyth where you will find local restaurants serving fresh fish from Cardigan Bay and pubs to enjoy a glass or two by the sea.

The cottage has been lovingly converted from stables using environmentally friendly, natural materials. The traditional Welsh slate floor has cosy underfloor heating plus a log stove to ensure you are snug in all weathers. The perfect place to get away from it all, go walking, cycling, or or visit the gorgeous beaches of Cardigan Bay.  There are footpaths and cycle routes which can be explored from from the doorstep. Local pubs, restaurants and cafes are a short wander down the hill into Aberystwyth where you will find top class restaurants and pubs.

This place has it all!

customer reviews for Cae Bach

Everything worked really well. We found the cottage easily and gained entrance as advised. Cae Bach is exceptionally well equipped and comfortable . A really lovely kitchen and shower room with everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and overall the cottage has a fresh, modern feel. We really enjoyed our stay The owners left us a very nice welcome message, a jug of fresh Daffodils and some lovely treats.

Cae Bach is a lovely little bolt hole in a fab location, everything is within easy reach, if you want to venture out and about. We enjoyed our surprise in the fridge a nice little touch which went down a treat whilst lazing around in front of the woodburner. The cottage is well equipped including underfloor heating, cosy and warm we will come back I'm sure, but we are off to Snowdonia National park for our next short break with UTT .

We had a lovely holiday at Cae Bach. Comfy cosy cottage with everything we needed. Interesting and imaginative restoration of an old agricultural building. Amazing sea and rural views. Thoughtful treats and welcome message from owners waiting for us on arrival which was a lovely surprise. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

If anything the photos don't really do it justice. Extremely well appointed - felt like we were the first guests there- but discovered that the many guests before us all agreed it is a superb cottage in a great location. Hosts were exactly what we love, just a call away when we needed their help, came and sorted our small problem and otherwise we had perfect peace. The only point to mention is, if like me you are a very light sleeper, the sliding doors can be noisy, but all in all it was more than worth it. We will be back.

The cottage is exceptional, simple and uncluttered but not lacking anything and with lots of thoughtful details. We travelled to Aberystwyth by train and it's been a bonus to be able to leave the car at home - the house feels very private and rural but very handy for everything. There are great walks along the coast path that can be accessed by local train or bus and we're already planning a return trip with our bikes. Thank you for a very warm welcome.

We had a wonderful time at Cae Bach. It really is a lovely little place, really quiet and secluded, with amazing views across the hills and out to sea. The décor and layout of the place is really lovely - we really enjoyed getting back there each day after our days sightseeing. It's also well equipped for eating in so we stocked up at the Spanish deli in the town and thoroughly enjoyed staying in. Waking up in the morning was also a real treat - the view whilst eating breakfast outside, and the sound and view of the starlings doing their daily swirl right in front of us was just treat! Hope we'll have a chance to visit again!

Cae Bach is a stunning place to stay in Aberystwyth. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished and the setting is perfect. You have all the advantages of the town including fantastic restaurants and pubs, beaches and historic sites but you can then retreat from the hustle and bustle and relax in an idyllic setting with wonderful views. This is the best place we have stayed in Aberystwyth.

Cae Bach is an excellent holiday cottage, in a beautiful rural location within walking distance of Aberystwyth town. We loved the design of the cottage and the fantastic views over the sea. At dusk we watched bats fly around the garden - easily visible through the huge windows. We'll hopefully be back to stay in Cae Bach again soon - it's lovely!

What a fantastic place to stay! A well needed rest and relaxation break and nowhere better to take the break than Cae Bach. Fabulous views across Cardigan Bay, remote and peaceful location yet within 10 minutes walking of Aberystwyth. Certainly be back to stay there again. Can recommend lazy breakfasts sat outside on sunny days. Will definitely be back very soon for another break.

Cae Bach is a beautifully renovated and enlarged holiday cottage for two, with wonderful views. We had an excellent, peaceful weekend there and only wish it could have been longer. We hope to return!

What a fantastic place!! Cae Bach is a place where you can forget about the stresses of work and just chill in an oasis of calm and beauty. The recent renovation has been done to an extremely high standard with quirky little details that make it special. The outdoor area has such a lovely view of the coast and very comfortable garden chairs/loungers if the weather is kind to you! There are plenty of walks that can be done right from the front door onto the coastal path or down into Aberystwyth for an ice cream. We will definitely be back! Thank you Sion & Meleri

What a delightful cottage! We loved the mixture of new and modern furniture. The fantastic kitchen with the beautiful old stone wall, the spacious lounge with the large windows with the great view over to the sea and the hills and thanks to these windows and the roof windows the cottage is incredibly full of light. Very peaceful and quiet and only 10 minutes walk to Aberystwyth so no need to worry about parking spaces. Lovely walks near the cottage. We loved the Vale of Rheidol Railway to Devil's bridge and Barmouth. The first time we went to Aberystwyth 3 years ago we thought "wouldn't it be nice to book a cottage near this beautiful city?". Thanks to the owners and UTT we had a fantastic week there in a great cottage!

Superb renovation of existing building plus extension to house all mod.cons in a remarkably well-sheltered yet panoramic situation within walking distance of Aberystwyth. We were one of the first guests: everything was to hand. Very tasteful interior. A real safe haven. We felt very much at home. Will certainly revisit.

A great little one-storey cottage for two people, with fantastic views across the fields to Aberystwyth and Cardigan Bay. A very recent and modern conversion-cum-extension of an old agricultural building, with plenty of exposed grey stonework, floor-to-ceiling glass and painted steel roof beams giving the building a clean, light and spacious feel. This feeling is augmented by the brilliant white kitchen area with skylights above and by space-saving sliding doors to the bedroom and its en-suite. If that sounds rather stark, then there are plenty of creature comforts - books, TV, excellent wifi connection and, if the weather permits, beautiful outdoor furniture. Lots of personal touches too - pictures of the cottage pre-conversion, jars of tea & filter coffee, a pot of very good local honey.
