Our guest corridor offers a single/twin/king bedroom, study & bathroom. We are a couple of minutes from the railway station, on a very quiet street, overlooking the School or Art gardens, within easy reach of everything that Aberystwyth has to offer.
The bedroom, this can be made up as a twin, single or king size bed. One mattress is slightly shorter than normal as it stows away underneath the other mattress when not in use.
The room has a single/twin/kingsize bed which can be made up to accomodate one or two guests. The bedroom looks out over Aberystwyth University School of Art grounds and is very private and quiet. The room can comfortably accommodate a couple or two friends.
The house is a three storey Victorian house which was completely renovated in 2010.
In addition to the guest accommodation there are two sitting rooms (both with fires) which guests can use, a kitchen/diner, a playroom, and the family bedrooms. The children are all on the second floor so can't be heard from the guest room!
Guests have exclusive use of the rear corridor which has a small study with desk etc, which also contains a selection of teas and coffee and a kettle, a large bathroom which has an original claw foot bath with a shower, as well as the bedroom itself.
Guests are welcome to make use of either of the sitting rooms. One has a TV with freeview channels and the other a TV with DVD player only. Guests can also make use of the washing machine and tumble drier which are located in the utility room off the kitchen.
There is a good wi-fi signal available in the bedroom and all of the first and ground floors as well as a mobile signal on most networks.
Guests do not have access to the top floor or playroom.
Interaction with Guests
One or other of the family is around most of the time and we enjoy spending time with our visitors during their visits.
We really enjoy meeting people from different cultures, countries and backgrounds.
Aberystwyth is a lovely seaside town with a unique character, due to the combination of it's location and the impact of the University, the town's population increases by almost half in term time. As such we have a good range of restaurants and cultural attractions for such a small place!
We have details of local listings for the Arts Centre, cinema and museum, as well as local walks and the associated Ordinance Survey maps and local guides. Guests can borrow maps and guides as well as flasks for tea and coffee!
We are a very short walk from the bus and railway stations and about 5 minutes from the promenade, beach and sea.
There is on road unrestricted parking in front of thehouse and we are a 10-15 minute walk (allowing for the hill!!) from the main University campus.
Other Things to Note
All the breads at breakfast are home made and we can cater for pretty much any dietary requirements with 24 hours notice.
We have two pet budgies which live in the children's playroom on the ground floor of the house.
This is a family home so we would ask guests not be be excessively noisy late at night.
There is no smoking anywhere in the property.
Our hosts made us feel quite welcome and at ease in their lovely home on a quiet street in Aberystwyth. The room with twin beds was very comfortable. The private bathroom was huge and nicely renovated. We enjoyed our brief one night stay, including the simple breakfast with the whole family.
Hello Rebecca, thank you very much for the warm and nicely hospitality. It was a pleasure to stay at your home. Thanks for all the tips you gave us. We like to recommend your place to all other guests who are looking for a nice place to stay in Aberystwyth.

The host family were delightful and they made us feel very welcome. Matthew and Becky and the children were very friendly and we felt very relaxed and well looked after. The house is lovely, very good location, very comfortable. Matthew made us dinner one evening and it was one of the best meals I've had for ages. Highly recommended.

La casa e'confortevole e di buon gusto ed i bimbi sono deliziosi ,educati e simpaticissimi!
A delightful night in Aberystwyth. Becky and Matthew were very kind and hospitable, and we spent an excellent evening in conversation and eating wonderful food, courtesy of Matthew. Their three highly intelligent and very lively children were a pleasure to be with, so this made a perfect introduction to our week in Wales. Thank you very much!
Rebecca & Matthew has a gorgeous Victoria house that is beautifully decorated and also homely in a lovely residential area right in the heart of the town. Such comfortable bed, spacious bathroom. There's everything you ever needed for a stay and more! Thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast in their stunning kitchen. Rebecca & Matthew are very welcoming and wonderful to talk to. They have adorable, intelligent children who are wonderful hosts themselves. Definitely the best address in Aberystwyth!
