The Owner Says

Six new refashioned shipping containers, (each 6m x 2.4m), make a spacious building with  3 cosy bedrooms on the first floor and 3 living areas on the ground floor providing a kitchen, a sitting room, utility and drying room, and a secure storage area for valuable equipment. The white walled interiors are fully- heated and light permeates into the bedrooms through very large portholes. The living areas below open out onto a wide decking area, (18m x 5.5m), sheltered by three permanent sails, with further living and dining spaces. The deck itself can open out further as the walls open to reveal the coastal valley setting.

The exterior of local Welsh Larch and the sails echo the coastal environment, and the design using recycled containers provides a very low energy building, (especially when the solar PV panels are added). An Air Source Heat Pump provides lots of hot water.

Accommodating up to 12 people this unique development makes an ideal base for making most of its local environment. There is a secure space for storing, washing down and drying of equipment and clothes. There are showers for post swimming in the sea which is just 200 metres away, and somewhere to clean off those sandy or muddy boots from the many walking routes in the area.

A bonus is the wildlife. Nestled in a quiet part of the Welsh Coast Path on the Ceredigion Heritage Coast there is in abundance with seals, dolphins, rare butterflies and many unusual birds.

About Ty Cwch Boathouse

Stylishly converted, shipping-container accommodation just metres from the beach

The Owner Says

Our unique collection of glamping cabins are located just metres from the coast. These smart, up-cycled shipping containers that have been clad in wind-blown pine panels and shaded by canvas canopies – making the accommodation here a maritime masterpiece! Stacked together like giant lego, our shipping containers are in two storeys: on the very top are three cabins – each sleeping four people in bunk beds and available to book separately or all together – while below, the compartments contain a well-equipped communal kitchen and a cosy sofa and reading space. Beyond, extends a wide, open deck with up-cycled pallet furniture and boxes housing body-boards and rock-pooling nets for the beach. Together, our collection of cabins is known as the Ty Cwch Boathouse and, with its sail-like canopy shading the deck and round, porthole windows, it certainly has a nautical feel. If you’re bringing your own kayak or fishing equipment you can actually use it as a bit of a boathouse, too, storing your things securely while you stay. You can go from steeping your coffee to launching your kayak in a matter of minutes. We look forward to welcoming you to Ty Cwch!
