About This Listing
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.
Lovely welcome from the family. We really enjoyed our meal and conversation with everyone. Very comfortable bed. Quite neighbourhood.
The house is a beautiful Victorian house, and we had a floor for ourself. Rebecca and Matthew were lovely, and we really regret not to done with them in the evening, the smell of dinner was divine!!! Make sure you eat with them, as they are a lovely couple and Matthew is a great cook!
Matthew, Rebecca and their children were wonderful hosts and the rooms were as comfy and private as described. Lovely bed for sleeping, especially after traveling 10 hours from Killarney Ireland by trains and the ferry. We felt a bit like the rarely-seen Aunt and Uncle from the States who had come for a visit, actually. Great morning conversations about culture and politics with Matthew, helpful information about the town and surrounding area from Becky, and delightful talks with the the couples' twins and son that always left us smiling. (Kids names withheld for privacy, but we haven't forgotten them!). We came and went as we pleased and never felt like we were intruding. And the proximity to the train station and the National Library was convenient. Sorry that we had to leave. Highly, highly recommended for one person or a couple. And we loved Aberystwyth. Walking the hills and seeing the sites in a seaside location with frequently changeable weather reminded us a bit of San Francisco.
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.
