about the property

A simple traditional West Wales fisherman’s cottage near the beach at Llanon in Ceredigion/ Cardigan Bay, with a hot tub. Only a hundred yards down to a quiet beach. Great traditional roof and detail.

Sunday Times Top 100 UK Cottages - "Just 150 yards from this simple fisherman's cottage is a shingle beach. Nobody goes there, because there are sandy ones nearby, so you'll more or less have it to yourself for sunset walks. There are only three rooms, but the airy open-plan kitchen-cum-sitting room is big enough for long mornings in front of the papers, as well as leisurely suppers, and is warmed by an open fire." Sunday Times review.

Traeth Llanon is a charming little fisherman's cottage at Llanon beach. On a dead-end road, just 150 yards from the sea, the cottage sits virtually in the shadow of the historic Llansantffraed Church. Cute and romantic, you can come home to an open log fire and roll-top bath. Immaculately kept inside and out, the chief delight is the little-used beach. Being shingle the tourists spurn it in favour of nearby sandy beaches - which means that you'll often find you get the whole beach just to yourselves.

in detail

The property is centrally-heating throughout and the cost of this is included in the holiday. There is also an open log fire.

Small entrance lobby with doors left (to bedroom) and right (to Cegin Fawr).

Cegin Fawr - the main room is open to the rafters, with sash windows to the front and side and a small window to the rear. It is an open-plan living space including the kitchen, lounge and dining areas.

The room is centred on the open log fire and includes a leather double sofabed. CD Stereo. Plasma television with basic Sky satellite package. DVD player.

Note that if more than 2 stay the bathroom is off the main bedroom. We don't recommend this cottage for 4 adults.

Kitchen: is in a simple country style with Belfast sink, solid wood counters, fridge and microwave. No freezer, but the fridge has an ice compartment.

Dining: Table & chairs for 4.

Double Bedroom - with sash window to the front, and bathroom off to the rear. Stripped pine floor, new furnishings and a Victorian bedroom grate (not in use). Double height ceiling and internal walls clad in painted pine tongue & groove boards.

Bathroom - with window to rear & with all new fittings - a roll-top double-ended bath and a modern shower cubicle with power shower.

Outside - There is a small seating area with bench to the front inside the stone wall, and a very small enclosed garden to rear with decking and hot tub.

The lane to the rear runs alongside the river down to the beach.

Parking (one car) is currently on a patch of land 20m down the lane, that belongs to the cottage. In future, the small rear garden may be replaced with parking directly behind the cottage.

Travel cot and high chair available on request. Guests to bring own cot bedding.

Like all Under the Thatch accommodation, this property is entirely non-smoking inside.

customer reviews for Traeth Llanon (with hot tub)

This cosy cottage was a delightful place for a relaxing break. We didn't use the hot tub but it was lovely to be able to sit outside in the September sunshine listening to the sound of the nearby stream, while the deserted beach was only a pebble's throw away.

Amazing weekend break. Lovely accommodation, hot hub was a big hit. The cottage reminded us of the one in the “the holiday” , chocolate box look! Will definitely be returning

We loved staying here again as it's such a wonderful location next to the quiet beach. The bigger outside area is perfect and a huge improvement as we were now able to sit and eat outside. Kids adore the hot tub and we will be booking for next year!

Lovely cottage. The hot tub, and little seating area at the back are fab'. The weather was mixed, but walks from the door were superb, so much so that we didn't use our car the whole 4 days we were there. Local shop is good for basics. Some more homely touches have been removed due to Covid restrictions ( books games,DVDs) but we always overpack, so this wasn't a problem! Sorry about the kettle - unsupervised partner in the kitchen!

We had a lovely few days in Llanon. The cottage was beautiful and so was the surrounding area. Thank you very much for the wine and welsh cakes on arrival!

We enjoyed a peaceful, romantic break in this beautifully restored cottage. A one minute walk took us to the beach - an unspoilt stretch of pebbles and shingle teeming with wildfowl - no doubt due to the lack of people. We walked along the beach on two of our three mornings. The cottage was well-equipped and with excellent heating which warmed the rooms quickly on our return. We did not need to light the log fire, although that would have been an additional treat on a really cold evening. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bedroom and bathroom were lovely with a really cosy double bed. We did not use the hot tub as the weather and walk around the cottage were not enticing enough. We could have stayed in the cottage and village for our entire stay, but did venture further afield. We ate at The Harbourmaster in Aberaeron on one evening, and drove out to Devils Bridge and Aberystwyth on another day - watching the flocks of starlings over the sea and pier in the late afternoon was amazing. Thank you for making us so welcome - the Welsh Cakes and bubbly were brilliant. We can't wait to return!

This lovely fisherman’s cottage was perfect for the two of us plus our Lab. So close to the beach which we had to ourselves and straight onto coastal paths, but minutes from local amenities such as a good butchers and a chip shop that does Gluten Free fish and chips! The hot tub was a nice touch, sitting out under a canopy of trees listening to the birds and river rushing past. Mandy and Gary are caring and thoughtful hosts and we’ll definitely stay again. Many thanks, Steve and Stacey

A lovely cottage perfect for a couple who want the peace and quiet of Ceredigion but close enough to Aberystwyth and Aberaeron .Comfortable with lots of extras such as hair dryer iron even tea, coffee milk and condiments. Lovely gentle coastal walks. Public transport nearby excellent and we were able to leave the car parked up all weekend. My only negative comment would be the lack of an outdoor sitting area for meals, I know there is a hot tub and this may be more important for others.

We had such a lovely time in this charming cottage. There were 4 of us (2 children) so it was a squeeze but was perfect for the couple of days we wanted. We all loved the (almost always) empty beach, ability to walk to get essentials such as fish & chips and the luxury of a hot tub.

What an idyllic break. Perfect position close to the beach where we spotted seals. Lovely to have no wi-fi and spend time as a family. We used the hot tub every evening to relax after long walks along the coast and in the Cambrian mountains. A real log fire was also a treat.
