About Joy Davies

I am a retired university lecturer and have taught French and Spanish all my life. I now work as a free lance translator - mainly English into Welsh. I love travelling and feel it is important to provide guests with the same experience as I expect to receive when I'm staying elsewhere.

Joy Davies purchased this house in 2011

Why Joy Davies chose Aberporth

The house was built in 2011 and is maintained to a high standard. We love Ceredigion and West Wales and when this plot became available we went for it. It feels like going back in time to a more leisurely rural environment. At the same time, there are plenty of shops and things to do in the area.

What makes this house unique

For us it's our second home so it has everything we expect when staying there. It's within easy reach of the beach, coastal path, restaurants and shops but is is also a peaceful haven where we can relax and unwind. And the views are out of this world. You can see Snowdon and the Llyn Peninsula from the kitchen and lounge on a clear day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“What a lovely place, great taste, had a great week here, recommend Jamieson’s Steak House.” (The Payne family, Oxford, May 2014)

“What a lovely house! Fitted our situation perfectly. Very comfortable, could’ve stayed a lot longer. Lovely enclosed garden which was safe for the young grand-children. We were very lucky with the weather -it was gorgeous. Had a lovely week, would certainly recommend it.” (The Rushton family, Newcastle, Staffs, June 2014)

“Another great week at Aberporth!” (The Carletons and Needhams – July, 2014 – 3rd stay at Tir a Môr)

“We had a wonderful stay at Tir a Môr! The house is an excellent holiday home, fully equipped with everything we couldhave needed. Thank you for the badminton rackets – after much playing we managed a rally of 113!” (The Grahams and Goldings, Stoke-on-Trent, July 2014).

“Never been here before and I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a more beautiful house. Add to this a superb view and lovely countryside and you have the recipe for a perfect holiday. The little train to Devil’s Bridge was a delight, and the cathedral at St David’s was a deeply uplifting experience. Try to go.” (Enoch and Vaga families, Ilkeston and Liverpool, Aug 2014)

A fabulous house with breathtaking views of the Sea and coastline

  • 5 of 5

This property caters for everyone ..and every need. It is modern, relaxing, beautifully decorated and faultless.I stayed here with my husband and elderly parents, the local beach is wonderful-the best I have ever visited, peaceful, safe and ideal for every age group. As a base to visit the Ceredigion and surrounding area Tir a Mor is the finest, I would chose this property every time. Cardigan, Newquay, Pembryn, Fishguard , Tenby, Carmarthen, The National Botanical Gardens of Wales, the Cliff Hotel at Gwbert and sailing all within easy reach. Our favourite was the beautiful evening strolls along the coastal path above the bay at Aberporth as the Sun set..The owner deserves a great deal of credit as this property is simply outstanding .

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely delightful property! The house is a short walk away from the lovely beaches in Aberporth. The layout of the kitchen downstairs and lounge upstairs means that the view of the sea can be appreciated from both. It is spotlessly cleaned, well furnished and well equipped with everything that we needed for our family of 6. The high chair and cot were really helpful to have.

The Tesco in Cardigan delivers to the property so we had our shopping delivered on the afternoon of our arrival which saved us a trip out. I would not hesitate to re-book if we visit the area again.

Beautiful spacious house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was pristine - amazingly well-equipped and so tastefully decorated. The photographs on the site really, really do not do it justice! It's very spacious and light, and has a beautiful garden and amazing views.

Every detail has been thought of, the colours in each room coordinate perfectly, and there's even a telescope in the lounge upstairs that you can use to watch the dolphins in the bay.

This holiday home is within easy reach of many beautiful beaches, fantastic scenery and good places to eat. The house itself has many board games and books, two televisions and a bathroom for each bedroom. The hot water is HOT and plentiful.

The Wi-Fi signal is strong, and the small TV in the kitchen is a smart television. The one upstairs is freesat with a massive range of channels.

We would not hesitate to return here, and look forward to doing so in the near future. Top notch, five stars all the way!

The pictures of the house are great, but it real life if possible the house is even better!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures look great of the house, but if possible it is even better in real life! I stayed here with my husband, 2 year old daughter and my parents for a week. It is without a doubt the best house we have stayed in. Your can really see the time and effect the lovely owner has put into making the house so great, from the decor, to the setting, the gardens, the facilities in the house, the extras like games and lots of information on what to do in the area to just how clean the house is, top rated place to stay. The views from the house are stunning, and Aberporth itself is lovely. We enjoyed a few drinks and a meal in the Ship which was lovely. We explored the area and loved New Quay although we didn't see any Dolphins on our visit. The Weather was not on our side for week but we were able to get two afternoons in on the lovely beach in Aberporth, it was our little girls first time on a beach and she loved it!! The beaches are so clean and well looked after. We will be heading back to this lovely property in the future I am sure, cannot recommend it enough, we had a great family holiday and made lots of lovely memories.

Beautiful house, lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

As a previous reviewer stated the photos really do not do the house justice!

Spacious, spotlessly clean and plenty of kitchen equipment for a large family. The welcome bottle of wine, was a nice touch!

We particularly loved the sea views from the upstairs lounge.

Aberporth beach is literally minutes away, and you can walk to the beach. There is parking available, with a conveniently located chip shop and pub.

Joy, the owner was a pleasure to deal with, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Julie, thank you for your lovely review. I'm really pleased you had a good stay and that you like the house. I hope you will come back to Tir a Môr soon. Just for information for readers of this review, I do not always leave wine – I left it as a thank you because of a PayPal issue that arose during the booking process. I would not want to disappoint future guests. Joy

Further Details:

Ceredigion is a coastal county extending from just south of Cardigan to Aberystwyth and beyond to the north, and inland as far as the dramatic Cambrian Mountains. It is Wales’s best kept secret – it’s attractions may not be as well-known as those in some other counties, but it is nonetheless a region with a wonderful countryside and coastline. The Teifi Valley flows through the county rising near the historic abbey of Strata Florida. It flows through Tregaron then curves westwards through Lampeter, Newcastle Emlyn and out to sea at Cardigan. This beautiful valley wends its way through a variety of land formations from the peat bogs near Tregaron, to the waterfalls at Llandysul, Henllan and Cenarth and a gorge at Cilgerran, before flowing out to sea at the vast Poppit Sands beach west of St. Dogmaels. All of these places are accessible by road and can be easily visited and enjoyed. Aberporth is an ideal base for visiting the county and all its attractions.

Barley Saturday, Cardigan – horse and vintage machine parade: end April

Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival, Aberaeron : July
