You are right in the midst of stunning coastal scenery with access to the beach, the sea and Ceredigion's Heritage Coast. This ground floor apartment at The Old Post Office boasts a prime location in the heart of Aberporth: just grab your bucket and spade and walk onto the beach! The two sheltered Blue Flag sandy beaches of Aberporth make this seaside village one of Ceredigion's favourite holiday destinations. At low tide, rock pools are exposed and seals, dolphins and otters can often be seen close to shore. The coastal path passes just by The Penny Black providing wonderful walks passing sandy beaches, towering cliffs and rocky headlands....You are right in the midst of stunning coastal scenery with access to the beach, the sea and Ceredigion's Heritage Coast.

However, with so many nearby places to visit you’ll be tempted: the area has numerous tourist attractions and the apartment’s central location allows for day trips exploring the rest of Cardigan Bay and Pembrokeshire.
