About The Penny Black

The Penny Black is a fantastic 5-Star holiday rental right on the beachfront at Aberporth. The ground floor apartment sleeps four people in two bedrooms. With two bathrooms and the option of one room having a kingsize or two single beds, the property is perfect for families, friends or couples. You're only steps from the sand and a short walk from cafes, shops, restaurants and the waterfront Ship Inn pub. It is one of three superb apartments in the Old Post Office building, which can, depending on availability, be booked together to accommodate extended families or friends. Please see the owner's website for information.

Aberporth is a year-round favourite choice for a relaxing seaside holiday. It has two beaches - one of which has lifeguards in summer and the other with a slipway for launching boats - and consistently good surfing conditions. You only have to look out of the window to see if it's worth getting your wetsuit on when you stay at The Penny Black - that's how good the view is! If the conditions don't suit you, then there's a whole coastline of other beaches to choose from. Walk along the Ceredigion Coastal Path to Tresaith, or jump in the car and hit the waves at Mwnt, Penbryn or Llangrannog.

While you're out and about, why not take a walk around Cwmtydu or to the Devil's Bridge Falls. Browse the shops and markets in New Quay and Cardigan. Visit the Welsh Wildlife Centre or book a sightseeing boat trip to visit Ceredigion Bay's resident dolphins. The Honey Farm and Oakwood are two more excellent local attractions, while mountain bikers and walkers love the choice of trails at Bwlch Nant yr Arian.

There's never a "best" time of the year to enjoy a self-catering holiday in West Wales. For every person who loves sunning themselves on the beach in summer, there's another who relishes a breezy coastal walk in autumn or the solitude of the beach in winter when it's just you. Whatever the time of year you choose to visit, you are assured a warm welcome at The Penny Black.
