Plas Tanybwlch, now converted into luxury apartments, nestles in 7 acres of grounds just south of Aberystwyth, with dramatic vistas of the sea and views of no less than three castles. The main entrance to Plas Tanybwlch leads to a grand reception hallway and the apartments Valley View No.3 (ref OU8) and Sea View No.4 (ref OU9) are located on the first floor via a grand staircase. They have been restored, keeping the original 19th-century features including architrave, plasterwork, internal shutters and sash windows, and are stylishly furnished to include every comfort and convenience. The building is an imposing Grade II listed mansion house with an illustrious background. Built in 1835 by a Napoleonic war hero, it has been a WWII isolation hospital, a catering college and owned by a rock star with recording studios used by many famous music artists, a shrine to Jimi Hendrix once existed. A comfortable 30-minute beach walk or a 15-minute cycle along a Sustrans route will bring you to the university town of Aberystwyth, where you will discover the pier and promenade, castle, and the National Library of Wales (free guided tours available). Constitution Hill has a cliff railway to the summit as well as an unusual Camera Obscura allowing you to look back over the whole of Aberystwyth through a camera lens. The Aberystwyth Arts Centre is a top quality entertainment centre and considered the best in Wales outside of Cardiff. From Aberystwyth you can take the steam train on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to Devil’s Bridge. There are 60 miles of coastal paths in Ceredigion accessible from here and if you prefer a day out without the car, a ¾-mile walk will bring you to the stop where the buses go north or south to a variety of destinations, such as New Quay, where you may take a dolphin watching boat trip, and Aberaeron, a Georgian harbour town famous for its coloured houses and chic shops, cafés and restaurants. Ceredigion has a wealth of things to see and do whilst on holiday - from unsurpassed beaches, renowned nature reserves, historic houses and gardens and interesting coastal and inland towns and villages. Whatever your interest, you won’t be short of ways to fill your days. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.
