Overview

Wind your way along country lanes, glimpsing the sea glistening ahead and find yourself in front of Mwnt’s white washed little church, looking down at a breathtakingly beautiful beach in a hidden cove.  This is a National Trust treasure and voted number 1 in the Daily Mail’s list of Europe’s top ten loveliest hidden beaches and number 1 in Country Life’s list of UK picnic sites. 

No other cottages have the outlook enjoyed by Fynnon Grog nestled in the hillside above the beach, looking directly out to sea – one of the very best views imaginable!  Surrounded by its own land, the peace and quiet is broken only by birdsong and the bleating of Welsh lambs.  A true haven of tranquillity & scenic splendour!

The business has been run successfully since 1990, purchased by the current owners in 2016 with numerous refurbishments and improvements undertaken.  All the cottages have well equipped kitchens, stylish bathrooms, double glazing and full heating with each having a garden or patio.  Four of the five have stunning sea views over the Mwnt (Welsh for mound), the pretty whitewashed 13th century church and the beautiful beach and cove beyond which bottle-nose dolphins and grey seals are resident along with a plethora of birds.

The complex provides a perfect opportunity for a family or couple looking to live somewhere idyllic and run an established business with further development potential, in almost 20 acres of land with the most enviable position looking out across the bay, in what the current owners describe as “A piece of Welsh Heaven!”. 

 

History

The name Ffynnon Grog roughly translates to mean ‘Well of the Holy Cross’, with Mwnt taking its name from the steep hill called Foel Y Mwnt.  The Grade 1 listed white church nestled on the cliff above the beach is known as Eglwys y Grog (Church of the Holy Cross) and dates from around the 13th century. The church has a connection to the main house at FFynon Grog as in 1815, the nave of the roof was raised by Mr Williams who lived at Ffynnon Grog and was the Church Warden.

 

Location

Ffynnon Grog Cottages are uniquely situated in nearly 20 acres of its own coastal land on the Ceridigion coast approximately ½ mile from the delightful National Trust beach of Mwnt.  Ideally located near the well known and much loved coastal path providing beautiful walks with breath taking views from the headlands to hidden coves, cliffs and harbours, Nearby are many other local beaches such as Poppit Sands, Llangranog, Cwmtydu, Ceibwr Bay, Tresaith, Aberporth and Penbyrn.  Local attractions include Cardigan Castle and Guildhall Market, The Welsh Wildlife centre, boat trips to spot dolphins and seals in Cardigan Bay and a host of small villages and towns to visit and enjoy.
