Part of a Grade II listed mansion house with an illustrious background, Spindrift is a luxurious apartment with amazing sea views within this imposing residence. 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. The building, 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. Spindrift, an evocative name after the fine sea spray blown from cresting waves, is located on the first floor via a staircase. This attractive apartment has been restored, keeping many original 19th-century features including architrave, plasterwork, and sash windows; and is stylishly furnished from the open plan living space to the spacious double bedroom (both with sea views) and en-suite shower room.

The apartment has access to 7 acres of shared woodland so you can make the most of this idyllic location and the outstanding sea views. 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 Victorian electric 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 and Spindrift is the perfect elegant apartment to return to every day. Beach 400 yards. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.

Guest Comments

"Spindrift is a lovely apartment in a beautiful location. As it's on the first floor, the views over the field to the sea are amazing and it is brilliant that there are no other buildings nearby. In effect, this means that the beach is inaccessible to the public other than via the coast path or a long walk on a public footpath so there was barely anyone else on the beach which was perfect for us!The apartment is comfortable and warm, with everything you could need for a vacation, including washing machine, dishwasher and freezer - particularly useful as we were staying for 2 weeks.We didn't see many other residents in the building but those we met were warm and friendly. It was very peaceful. Our hosts were helpful and were there to welcome us on arrival and only a phone call away if needed.Although the location is away from town, it was ideal for trips out to other places and we were able to have grocery deliveries as we would at home. Aberystwyth is walkable from the apartment and there are lovely local walks from the front door too.We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we wanted to visit Aberystwyth again."

"Had a lovely holiday, everything we had hoped for."

"We absolutely loved our stay at Spindrift. The location was brilliant especially the sea view. We thought the apartment was very spacious, comfortable and so well equipped. The only minus point was that there was no tumble dryer. We enjoyed the walk down to the beach and then into Aberystwyth. Everything was perfect and we will hopefully return again one day."

"The apartment is lovely, very comfortable and more spacious than it looks on the photographs. Windows in the living area and bedroom look out on to amazing views of the coast up to Aberystwyth and at this time of year you can see the sunset. The beach is 5 mins walk, and Aberystwyth is 25 mins walk so very easy to get out and about. The place is very peaceful, but not too remote with Aberystwyth only 10 mins drive. The owners were very helpful and responsive to queries. Loads to do in the surrounding area with beautiful coastal walks and nature. We loved our time here and would thoroughly recommend Spindrift."

"My fiance and I had a fantastic week at Spindrift. The property is furnished very well and is exceptionally spacious. Furthermore it's just wonderful to come back every night and look out across the fields to the sea. The owners are very friendly and have gone the extra mile to ensure the property is cleaned to a high standard and to put measures in place to protect against COVID19. We spoke to one of the friendl neighbours who told us that you can see the sunset from the apartment from mid May to mid August without needing to walk to the beach. Whilst we were just too late in the year for that, we still witnessed the beautiful skies at sunset from the bedroom and living area. If you enjoy country walks, you are spoilt for choice. We spent most days exploring different bits of the dramatic Welsh coastal path. We came home feeling invigorated with all the sea air and lack of crowds and wished we could have stayed longer. A week just wasn't long enough."

"Beautiful apartment in stunning location. Everything you need is provided by the owner"

Maree, September 2020

"Wanted a quiet holiday with sea views and beach access. And that's exactly what we got."

Gillian, August 2020

"Spindrift is a beautiful house in an ideal location. It is well equipped and very tastefully furnished. We also found it to be exceptionally comfortable, with stunning views of the coast line. It was a lovely place to return to after enjoyable drives and walks in the local countryside."
