  • Expect to be enthralled by the stunning location and gorgeous interiors of this idyllic cottage, encapsulating cosiness, style and rustic comfort in a superb quintessential, classic country cottage.
  • Full of character, with many authentic pieces of furniture and charming accessories, many of the traditional features have been retained including beamed ceilings, original doors, wooden floors and reclaimed slate, which merges with stylish contemporary comforts, creating an ideal holiday base from which to explore the jewels of the local area.

  • The beamed cottage sitting room has timeless appeal. Relax on the comfortable sofa after a day in the pure Welsh air, in the glow of the cosy wood burner on chillier evenings.
  • In such a tranquil, peaceful setting a good night's sleep is promised in the stylish, unfettered bedrooms, which enjoy quality furniture and furnishings. Exuding character and charm, the original bread oven remains as a feature in the single room.
  • Step into the whimsical garden at the rear of the property, and relax on the rattan garden furniture, which is bordered by woodland and a flowing tributary of the Aeron River. The lawned, landscaped garden is fully enclosed and is perfect for older children to play in or for soaking up the peacefulness of the surrounding area. N.B.

19th September 2019

Much enjoyed your lovely well-designed renovation. Adapted thoughtfully to the age and style of the home.It was a great pleasure to visit, our thanks for the wine and for arranging such beautiful autumnal weather

2nd September 2019

Min yr Afon is a really outstanding cottage in a quiet part of Wales. There are a number of very attractive walks almost from the front door. The weather was changeable to say the least, however the cottage is so comfortable and the walks, especially the old railway, are suitable for most weathers, so it didn't matter. A fabulous cottage to which we hope to return.

The Hucksteps

Llanerchaeron (NT)

  • Over a little footbridge and across the meadows takes you to the 18th century Welsh gentry estate.

  • The mansion (designed by John Nash) gardens and cafe are set amidst rolling parkland. There is a service courtyard with dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house and walled kitchen gardens (with produce for sale in season). It is also a working organic farm with Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.


  • This 'Jewel of the Cardigan Coast' with its Georgian houses is a delight - boutique shops, art galleries, cafes/tea rooms, pubs, a great fish and chip restaurant take-away as well as The Hive, famous for its award-winning honey ice cream and lovely home-made produce. The renowned Harbourmaster Hotel is just across the harbour and is a delightful stroll at lunchtime or early evening. A fabulous restaurant renowned for fantastic fare and superb local beers.
  • Once a thriving and prosperous fishing port with a shipbuilding industry - some 60 sailing vessels were built here including 35 schooners 'the greyhound of the ocean' - a walk on the historic Town Trail gives a fascinating glimpse into this past, including the origins of the famous Aberaeron Shovel.

  • There is a fantastic regular calendar of events during the year to enjoy including Cardigan Bay Sea Food Festival, Yachting Regatta, a Beer & Cider Festival, Tug of War, Annual Carnival and Mackerel Festival.

Aberaeron Craft Centre

  • Browse a range of quality crafts under one roof including jewellery, art, clothes, accessories, stylish homewares and more.

Ceredigion Coast Path

  • The Ceredigion Coast Path is virtually on your doorstep - from Cardigan in the South to Yns-las in the North the path runs along the coast past Aberaeron and takes in part of the Marine Heritage Coast - secluded sandy coves, endless golden beaches, undulating clifftop walking where the only sound is the cry of the seabirds and there are charming fishing villages - spot bottlenose dolphins in the bay along the way!

Cei Bach

  • This pretty sheltered sandy beach is good for bathing and has beautiful scenic views - the Coastal Path from Aberaeron to Cei Bach passes over a waterfall as it wends its way along the cliff tops.

New Quay

  • This is a bustling seaside town with picturesque houses, pubs and restaurants clinging to the sides of the hills as they rise above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay above the sandy beaches - great for relaxing, sailing, fishing and water sports.

  • From New Quay's pier, you can see the famous Cardigan Bay dolphins on most days in the summer or take a fishing trip or coastal cruise to truly experience fantastic coastal scenery from a different aspect and perhaps have close encounters with the dolphins, seals, porpoises and sometimes whales!

Cwmtydu Beach

  • This is a tranquil, secluded cove at the end of the Dewi valley. Once the haunt of smugglers, it is now a popular destination for walkers, nature lovers and holidaymakers with caves to explore at low tide and spectacular cliff top views from the Ceredigion Coast Path as it passes through.


  • This pretty little-sheltered cove is popular with families and has great rock pools with the famous Carreg Bica rock (Devils Tooth) divides its 2 sandy beaches at low tide.

  • Enjoy a drink or food at the Ship Inn overlooking the beach - fabulous sunsets too!


  • This is the charming county town with its high street lined with Georgian shop fronts - call into The Custom House Gallery, visit the indoor market, sample some of the eating places and perhaps see a film or show at Theatr Mwldan which has a constantly changing programme of events.

Cardigan Castle

  • Recently refurbished, the castle is more of a Georgian mansion within 11th century fortified walls overlooking the Teifi river. Dine in the 1176 restaurant and enjoy special events.

Welsh Wildlife Centre & Teifi Marsh

  • Visit this award-winning venue with indoor and outdoor attractions and Glasshouse Cafe. Children will love the play area, wildlife films and interpretation centre. Outside are 4 nature trails with bird hides, willow sculptures, picnic areas and canoes for hire.


  • Less than 30 minutes drive away is the vibrant coastal and university town of Aberystwyth with its elegant promenade, interesting independent shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, arts centre, cliff railway and National Library of Wales.

A Grade ll enchanting cottage tucked away on the edge of the stunning Llanerchaeron parkland, perfect for holidays throughout the year.
