about the property

Fabulous holiday home in harbour town New Quay, Ceredigion, West Wales where you can watch dolphins from your door-step!

Sŵn y Don is a bright and spacious property with incredible sea views. It is situated in the centre of the pretty harbour town, New Quay (Cei Newydd) where you can watch the dolphins from the comfort of the light and airy lounge that looks out over beautiful Cardigan Bay. You can walk down to the harbour and enjoy the two large sandy beaches that New Quay boasts and eat the best fish and chips on the harbour wall in minutes 

The open plan living area has floor to ceiling style windows to make the most of the views of the spectacular coastline - who needs TV?! Each bedroom also have views out over the bay, and there is access to the patio area for alfresco dining and drinks.

Sŵn y Don is perfectly suited for families with older children, with its close access to the shops, restaurants and beaches, and because it sleeps up to 8 guests you can bring the grandparents along too for a family holiday to remember!

You really will have a holiday to remember here!

We had a fantastic time at Sŵn y Don . The accommodation was fantastic and we really felt at home. It was lovely waking in the morning to see the dolphins in the bay. I’d recommend this to anyone...

customer reviews for Sŵn y Don

We had a fantastic time at Sŵn y Don . The accommodation was fantastic and we really felt at home. It was lovely waking in the morning to see the dolphins in the bay. I’d recommend this to anyone looking to visit this lovely part of Ceredigion. New Quay is great for ice cream, fish and chips and just generally chilling. Hopefully we will be back sometime.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Swn y Don. A lovely spacious property in excellent condition. Very close to all local amenities. Stunning views over Bae Ceredigion.

What a special place. We enjoyed every moment of our time at Sŵn y Don. The house is positioned looking out over the ocean, so that at any time of day you can enjoy being on the coast. The beach is so close that you can hear the waves on the sand. One afternoon we sat on the sofa and watched a group of porpoise surfacing over and over. The house itself is wonderful. It's so comfortable, clean and well-finished. Every room is breezy. It has a very positive atmosphere to it that's both energising and relaxing. I really appreciated how well equipped we found the house to be. Little things like there being a coffee pot (we'd forgotten to pack ours) and spare lightbulbs. Finding ice in the freezer after a long day in the sun was bliss. We'll definitely be going back again.

Fantastic cottage with incredible views of the sea and dolphins. The girls and I loved the cliff climb adventures, kayaking, jumps off the harbour and the amazing wildlife. We saw butterflies, bumble bees, seals, crabs and jellyfish. Thanks for looking after us - we will be back in 2020. Tiny&TheGirls.

The house was very clean, welcoming and well decorated. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and each had an amazing view of the bay, especially the lounge. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The beach was within walking distance as was a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops. There was a great aray of activities for all ages and interests. We would definitely choice this property again. You can’t beat having a little drink sitting in the lounge and watching dolphins out of the floor to ceiling window! Guest, April 2019
