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.

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...

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)

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.

What a beautiful cottage! Me and my partner had the loveliest long weekend at Traeth Llanon. The cottage was set up perfectly for our arrival, was a minute or two walk from the stunning beach! The hot tub was incredible but my favourite part was the log fire. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a cozy romantic get away

We had a relaxing few days at the cottage. A lot of thought and attention to detail ensured our stay to be comfortable and so very, very chilling. Just what we needed.

We have just returned home from a stay at Traeth Llanon. What a wonderful place. The cottage was beautiful and provided everything we needed. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed being so close to the beach. We enjoyed excellent coastal walks and found many places of I terest to visit, which were a short drive away. We highly recommend Traeth Llanon and certainly hope to visit again. And what a treat to have our own hot tub!

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage with our 2 year old and 9 year old. The cottage is rustic and comfortable, and the bath is lovely. We had a couple of evenings in the hot tub and access to Llanon beach is just 2 minutes away. We highly recommend Dolphin watching in Aberaeron and the Steam Railway in Aberystwyth. We also had a great meal in the local pub in Llanon, which is walkable distance and the local fish and chip shop is also very good. We had a lovely evening of fish and chips on the beach. Highly recommend this sweet, little cottage.

A fantastic and wonderful cosy cottage, the owner Amanda could not have done more to make us welcome and also to keep our holiday peaceful and quiet. Great hot tub and perfect for relaxing after the beautiful beaches locally. A must do is dining at the Harbourmaster in Aberaeron, perfect meal and lunch, also the The Feathers. Everything at the cottage was cosy, clean and cwtchy. Thank you for a lovely stay, will be back again

This is a beautiful cosy cottage in an idyllic village. It is a short walk to the beach and near a number of larger towns which have coffee shops and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The cottage is stylish and warm and the open fire and the hot tub really make this a great place to go and stay. I would highly recommend it and we would happily come again.

Very cosy little cottage, loved all the special touches provided by the owners. The hot tub was very relaxing especially in the evening looking up at the stars. Will definitely return soon.

A delightful cottage, both stylish and cosy, set in peaceful surroundings by the village church. The owners certainly make their guests feel welcome, leaving them a card and treats. We loved the fact that we could be on the beach in a minute, walking past other lovely cottages on the way. Residents and other holiday makers were all friendly when we met them on our journeys around the village and we were ideally placed for sightseeing. The hot tub was a real luxury after a day out and the 12pm departure time on your last day is very civilised!

Just came back from a wonderful stay in the cottage. What a gorgeous place! Location is perfect, so peaceful and romantic. Had some lovely morning and evening walks on the beach and travelled further afield for fantastic walking along the Welsh coastal path from Newquay and Llangrannog. We were also lucky enough to visit for the seafood festival at Aberaeron which was brilliant and we recommend the Harbour Master for dinner, amazing oysters! Will definitely be back. Thank you!

The cottage was just so cute and a fantastic use of a little house ! The addition on the hot tub was great. The cottage was clean and nicely decorated. The welsh cakes and welcome card were a nice touch.It was located in a lovely little hamlet , shame that there is no pub now in Llanon to have a bite or a drink . New quay by far the nicest local place to visit .

Just returned from Cysgod-y-Mor and oh my what a wonderful weekend we have had! A beautiful and cosy fisherman a cottage, very quirky, very romantic with its stunning interior and real log fire. Tucked away in what could be a little hobbit town, private secret garden with hot tub. Such a quiet and peaceful location it's next to a stream and only yards from a secluded rocky beach. I feel like I've left the real world for 3 days and hidden away in bliss xx

We had a fabulous weekend at Cysgod-Y-Mor. The cottage was comfortable and homely. The hot tub was a bonus! Great location - so nice to be so close to the sea. The perfect getaway for our first wedding anniversary. Would love to go back again one day. .

'A wonderful, relaxing cottage in a picturesque location. A meal at the Harbourmaster is a must, so is a trip to the water falls at Devils Bridge. Spent hours walking on the isolated beach.
