about the property

Cae Bach is a luxury private bolthole walkable from Aberystwyth. Sea views and great design at home!

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 visit the gorgeous beaches of Cardigan Bay.  There are footpaths and cycle routes which can be explored 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

As always booking through UTT was an easy and pleasant transaction. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cae Bach. It was easy to find. The location was great being close to town and to the coastal path. The cottage was spotlessly clean and warm. Our hosts were always available if we needed anything. Highly recommend this cottage and look forward to returning soon.

The photos did not do the view justice! Stunning location and so peaceful. Beautifully appointed property, with lovely unique items. Great spot for walking, mountain biking and bird watching. Highly recommend.

Wonderfully quiet and extremely comfortable property, we really enjoyed our stay. The view from the window on a nice day is fantastic! Everything is provided. When we asked Sion and Meleri about maps and local walking books, they very kindly provided some before we arrived. Richard & Pam (stayed July 2020)

Peaceful tranquil wonderful views, all of the above I can only repeat the reviews of others. Cae bach is a beautiful cottage with everything you need for a relaxing break without being too far away from civilisation. A good place to explore the Ceredigion coastal path and local walks. We didn't use our car all weekend and the walk to town took about 15 minutes a steep walk back but all part of the experience, no rush we're on holiday. Would love to return

Absolutely gorgeous - Cae Bach is perfect - calm and peaceful surroundings -great views and walks from the door. Lovely minimal decor matched the tranquility of the setting. Just brilliant!

We had a lovely holiday at Cae Bach and enjoyed many walks along the coastline. The cottage is peaceful and cosy. We were lucky with the weather so were able to enjoy the garden and the views of Cardigan Bay. Hope to return again soon.

Such a lovely calm place to stay. Brilliant for walking either way along the coast and with fantastic view. Woodpeckers, buzzards, crows and Aber's starling murmuration are gorgeous to watch as well as many other birds, bees and wildlife. It's a little haven.

Just spent a delightful short stay at Cae Bach The cottage was warm( underfloor heating) stylish and comfortable The location was ace, offering wonderful views and an ever changing sky, and plenty of sheep for company. Access to coastal path and Aberystwyth was close , if rather windy out of season . A good variety of shops / restaurants In Aberystwyth and easy access to coastal hideaways A delight!

We had a wonderful stay at Cae Bach. We travelled by train and it is well situated for a car-free holiday (though the taxi driver from the station had trouble finding it late at night). The walk up the hill from the town is not too steep! You feel you are miles from anywhere with the fantastic views around. It is very convenient for walking the coast path and Aberystwyth in winter was quiet and the seafront very dramatic at night in the wind and rain with waves breaking over the sea wall. The cottage is very well equipped (though I didn’t spot a hairdryer). We had some lovely walking weather and a day of wind and rain during which we just snuggled up in the warm in front of the fire listening to the howling winds around us. We would love to return in the summer.

Lovely cottage with beautiful views of the sea and close to the town of Aber and a lovely wood burner and everything you need for a cozy getaway. Would definitely visit this place again.
