Zenobia is a smart Georgian townhouse overlooking Cardigan Bay & the sandy beach at New Quay, West Wales. It has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard by a professional interior designer, and will appeal to those who like a bit of luxury. Click here for aerial photo and for our Facebook Zenobia gallery. The house is on a quiet dead-end road, with the coastal footpath at its end. This is our best property for seeing the local colony of bottle-nosed dolphins - you can watch them from your window if they are in the bay, or boat trips are available from the quay below. 5* cottage review
