Llanon cottage

Llanon cottageIn the village of Llanon there are ruins known as Neuadd (hall) which was probably an important Tudor building and nearby is one of the last surviving cottages in West Wales with original straw rope underthatch. This is a typical 2-roomed Cardiganshire cottage of the 18th century; the thatched roof is now covered by corrugated iron.

Acknowledgement: This cottage with the adjacent Tudor ruins and a plot of land being developed as a small nature reserve were given to Ceredigion District Council by Mr A D Cameron of Edinburgh in fulfilment of the wishes of his late wife Mrs Elsbeth Cameron (formerly Lloyd).

Llanon village lies on the A487 between Aberaeron and Aberystwyth.

It is famous for its association with St Non and St David and for the strip of good agricultural land which borders the sea, particularly between the rivers Clydan and Peris where medieval strip fields still survive.

Llanon cottageOn the coast there is an interesting church with a 13th century tower and early 19th century nave. The beach is pebbly with some sand, and is normally secluded. The geological strata on the cliff have been classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
