Magnificent views across the Bristol Channel & on the beautiful Heritage Coast

The Limpert is situated on the Leys Beach, at Limpert Bay, it was originally a 15th century boat house and is the most southerly house in wales, The Limpert Inn which was next to the boat house was a thatched inn on the beach were many a sailor stayed whist their boats brought merchandise to nearby Aberthaw Port. Room was limited in the Inn and very often the boat house was used for overflow accommodation. The building was also used for dances for the village folk and visiting sailors.

The beach is mainly pebble and offers magnificent views across the Bristol Channel to Exmoor and Minehead.


Guest Reviews

Beautiful clean, airy room with fantastic views over the pebble beach. Quiet location but easily reached and accessible from the bigger towns. Friendly hosts, offering knowledgable information of the area and things to see and do.

Fantastic Stay
My girlfriend and I stayed her when we travelled to Cardiff for the 6 nations. We had a fantastic stay, the hosts couldn’t do enough to help.

Brilliant find!
Originally booked elsewhere but had to cancel, luckily found this hidden gem and glad we did! Brilliant hosts both Tucker and Sharne, very welcoming and helpful. Didn’t arrive until quite late but was welcomed and recommended a local pub for a bite to eat and a delicious pint of cider! Clean throughout, comfortable bed. Brilliant location; will be back next year hopefully.



We had a wonderful time at Limpert Bay. Sharne and Tucker treated us like old friends. On arrival Sharne asked if we had brought milk. As it happened, we had forgotten the milk and Sharne instantly made a bottle appear for us. She then kindly offered to give us a lift to the nearby pub if we wanted an evening meal. The flat was perfect. Compact but with everything you could possibly need including a ridiculously comfortable bed.
