Once voted one of the top places in Britain to enjoy the seaside, you'll want to climb aboard this converted Edwardian railway carriage, parked on the clifftop where it enjoys wonderful views over Cardigan Bay while serving as a deliciously original one-bedrooms self-catering property.  It's 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. Wherever you are in the property, you're aware of the sea views, and you'll almost certainly be able to spot cormorants and kestrels gliding just outside your window; if you're lucky you'll be able to see seals and dolphins too. You're just a few hundred yards from the sandy beach at Aberporth, the coastal path runs right by, and the county town of Cardigan is just a few miles to the south. Book well in advance for summer – it's popular!



Open all year.


From around £400 to £800 a week in high season.

Relaxing amazing views

We stayed here on the 7th February 2016. It was a well equipped carriage; the renovations they have done to this carriage are very good .It was very windy while we were there but cleared up from the middle of the week and we managed to do some walking along the coastal paths with spectacular scenery. You can get to some quirky places from here within 1/2 an hour but be wary the carriage has no wifi and it's difficult to get a signal but if you don't care about that then just sit on the patio that is attached to the rear of the carriage and keep a eye out for seals and dolphins.
