Why we recommend Cistercian Cottage...

Pet friendly, pretty Cistercian Cottage provides a wonderful base from which to explore the magnificent Cambrian Mountains and Cambrian Coast

About Cistercian Cottage

Cistercian Cottage, with hot tub, is a perfect base from where to explore the Cambrian Coast, Devils Bridge and Aberystwyth
  • The cottage location is wonderful, set at the head of a valley looking down onto a lake and to the coast beyond. The owners house is close by but the cottage is completely private. 
  • There is a hot tub to luxuriate in, ample off-road parking for two or three cars and plenty of storage space for bikes etc. The enclosed garden is a wildlife haven, teeming with birds clinging to the feeders. 
  • A unique feature of the cottage is the living area with its  stunning panoramic views and magnificent sunsets to revel in  -  open the patio doors and soft gentle Welsh air will drift in  - the valley appears to blend seamlessly into the room.
  • Whatever time of year, the ever-changing scenery is always spectacular, and just up the hill is the red kite sanctuary of Bwlch Nant Yr Arian - don't forget your camera and binoculars and take advantage of the opportunity to watch hundreds of red kites feeding all at the same time
  • Druid Inn, 5 minutes from the cottage by car, serves great food - the Sunday lunchtime roast lamb is delicious.



About The Area

Bwlch Nant Yr Arian Visitor Centre 

  • Bwlch Nant y Arian is an outstanding forest recreation centre in the heart of Mid Wales.
  • An award winning attraction, the Visitor Centre has been completely re-developed as an ecologically-friendly building with excellent restaurant facilities, a gift shop and superb views. 
  • Nant-yr-Arian is famous for the daily Red Kite feeding, which can be seen from the Visitor Centre or from many places around the lake. 
  • For the more athletic, there are a number of way marked walks, one of which is suitable for disabled persons. 
  • Excellent Cycle Trails start and end at Nant-yr-Arian, with a bike washing facility at the Visitor Centre. 
Devils Bridge
  • A visit here is a must -  hiking boots and camera essential -   a great place to take children, who could complete the short walk with a little guidance. There are 2 walks to choose from, Nature Trail Waterfalls & 3 Bridges (45 mins approx) or the easier Punchbowl & 3 Bridges (10 mins approx.) It's a wonderful day out with exceptional views and spectacular water falls. 
  • En-route there are a few stopping points - take a picnic and flask of tea - where you can rest and take in the views. 

Beaches 

  • When the tide is low Borth and Ynyslas have excellent golden sandy beaches and even when the tide is high there is usually some sand at Ynyslas in front of the dunes.
  • Borth's award-winning beach is particularly popular with canoeing, fishing, sailing, surfing, motor boating,  water skiing and sailboard enthusiasts - RNLI Lifeguards are in attendance during the summer holiday season - look out  for the flags.
  • Ynyslas, with its excellent golden sandy beach, is about two miles north of Borth along the coast road and is particularly popular with shell collectors and kite flyers. You can drive onto the sands here but beware of the soft sand and tides -  a few people have been caught out by the speed of the incoming tide!!!!  
  • Call into the Ynyshir RSPB nature reserve on your way home and perhaps catch a glimpse of the elusive osprey.
Hafod Estate  
  • Enjoy the outdoors and take The Bridge Walk or The Ladies & Gentleman's walks along beautiful woodland and river paths. The waterfalls and Cascade Cavern are a sight to behold. There are some steep and rough paths in places, as well as easier tracks - there is something for everyone to enjoy here. Look out for the dippers as well! 
Aberystwyth
  • Aberystwyth's graceful sweeping seafront is a favourite with visitors and locals alike. Whenever you visit, you'll be likely to find the Promenade alive with walkers, joggers, bikers - and those who just want to relax by the seaside.
  • This vibrant university town has a wide range of lovely shops, fabulous restaurants and beach and promenade walks.  
  • Constitution Hill marks the quieter northern end of the promenade and features an impressive cliff railway up to the viewpoints, camera obscura and other hilltop attractions.
  • Aberystwyth Art Centre stages exhibitions all year round and the building is also home to a theatre and cinema.
Cambrian Mountains 
  • The rugged peaks and velvet slopes that adorn the central Mid Wales uplands make the Cambrian Mountains one of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain. Running from north to south, these mountains straddle the counties of Powys and Ceredigion and are often described as the backbone of Wales. 
  • A paradise for walkers and wildlife watchers alike, they are remarkably free of human intervention and afford their visitor some of the most enchanting environments this country has to offer.
Elan Valley 
  • The Elan Valley in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains is home to the Elan Valley Reservoirs with fantastic walking and cycling trails and a Visitor Centre with cafe and activities all year round.
  • The road between The Elan valley and Devils bridge is one of the most dramatic in Wales - a really spectacular route.
 Rheidol Cycle Trail
  • This 28 km trail takes you from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge and Nant yr Arian where there is a selection of trails available from the Visitor Centre. Perhaps your dog would enjoy running alongside as you cycle?

Rheidol Riding Centre

  • All types of leisure riding are offered from half an hour on a lead rein for small children (minimum of 4 years old) on quiet ponies, to the more exciting one and two & half hour hacks for competent riders. All-day rides can be arranged for experienced riders and also pub rides during the holiday season.
