Once voted one of the top places in Britain to enjoy the seaside, why not stay in this stylish conversion of an Edwardian railway carriage which retains its original charm while hitting all the right notes on contemporary comfort. The Clifftop Railway Carriage Aberporth has been cleverly done, retaining the character of the original carriage while providing light and bright accommodation for two, with a decent-sized bedroom with king-sized bed, an open-plan kitchen and dining area that opens out onto a deck and a cosy sitting room with wood-burning stove.
Perched on the cliff top where it enjoys wonderful 180 degree sea views over Cardigan Bay while serving as a deliciously original one-bedrooms self-catering property. The stunning cliff top location enables frequent sightings of resident bottlenose dolphins and seals.
The carriage (named Wendy) is just moments from Aberporth’s sandy blue flag beach, the Ceredigion Coastal Path and local pubs, shops and places to eat. Tresaith, Llangrannog, Cwmtydu, New Quay, Cardigan and Aberaeron are all close by, as are the two famous National Trust beaches of Mwnt and Penbryn.
On a clear day you can see all the way to Snowdon and North Wales.
This is a great spot for bird watching with many sea birds including oystercatchers, gannets, cormorants and kittiwakes as well as kestrels, red kites and many other breeds.
The main rooms enjoy wonderful views to the front over the sea and also to the rear over the orchard garden. You will enjoy all the comforts of the snug carriage, but you will take away with you the memories of the spectacular location.
