Situated within a 20-minute stroll down to New Quay’s picturesque harbour, Montrose is a stone-built terraced house which has been furnished to provide comfortable accommodation. Built in the early 1870s, the property lies in an area known as ’Arba’ and was built when a number of tenants from the nearby Llanina Mansion were ejected from the estate for not voting as their landlord required. Since the early 1900s the house has been in the ownership of the same family, and the current owner is the grandson of sea captain Daniel Evans. Born in 1886, he was the last survivor of the New Quay Cape Horners, famous for sailing his vessel 3000 nautical miles on the treacherous journey around the Horn. Adjacent to the owner’s home, Montrose offers plenty of living space. Sea views can be enjoyed from the rooms at the rear of the property, and the pretty enclosed courtyard has direct pedestrian access through a holiday park, down to the long stretch of beach at Traeth Gwyn, which is dog friendly all year round.

Once famous for smuggling, fishing and wooden boat building, the pretty seaside town of New Quay (Cei Newydd in Welsh), has pubs, shops, restaurants and cafés clinging to the sides of the hills above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay. Enjoy the sheltered harbour and wonderful sandy beaches, or sailing, fishing and water sports which are all available locally. The harbour wall is a great place to sit and enjoy an ice cream whilst watching the boats bobbing about. Look out for the resident bottlenose dolphins too. Boat trips are available in season to see them up close. Poet and writer Dylan Thomas lived in New Quay in 1944. It is easy to see why he loved the place and how it gave him such inspiration. If you are here during the summer you may catch one of the many events in the town such as Cardigan Bay Regatta and New Quay Music Festival. The firework display over the harbour around bonfire night is a spectacle not to be missed.

There are many interesting and beautiful places to visit including the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, just 15 minutes away by car, and the university town of Aberystwyth, 20 miles, with its long promenade and pier, cliff railway, camera obscura and Vale of Rheidol steam railway to Devil’s Bridge. Cardigan with its castle, is 18 miles, and there is plenty of stunning scenery to explore inland, including Cors Caron, one of the few remaining examples of a raised peat bog in Britain. Lying beside the River Teifi, just above the small market town of Tregaron, on the edge of the dramatic Cambrian Mountains, there are excellent walks through the heart of the bog on a timber decked walkway. Montrose is the ideal property for both short breaks or longer holidays, so come and discover what a charming and diverse area Cardigan Bay is. Beach 400 yards. Shop 600 yards (seasonal shop 200 yards), pub and restaurant 300 yards.
