Beautiful cottage with everything you need - home from home

C Haresign - 7th February 2018

Just a superb cottage and so well appointed.

Nic Naish - 31st January 2018

We stayed at the cottage for a week over Easter with my elderly parents. The cottage was wonderful and, as the bedrooms were on the ground floor, it made it even easier for my parents as stairs are becoming difficult to climb. The hot tub was a wonderful feature which my husband and I enjoyed every night - even in the rain!!

Couldn't believe it when we walked in. It was amazing, the attention to every little detail was beyond expectations. The location was beautiful with amazing views. We even got an introduction to the horses and stabling especially Alfie and Rory. Was made very welcome by Mair and she couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely give the location, accommodation and welcome 10 out of 10 and are looking forward to coming back soon. Thanks for making the start of 2014 special for us all.

This is a 'home from home' but far more luxurious! From the second we arrived, we felt instantly relaxed. The house is so well thought out and designed - it worked perfectly for our 5 year old girl and 2 year old twin boys. It was a delight to see their faces on seeing so many animals as soon as they woke up, priceless. We're going to steal some of your decor ideas when we get home, as this house is beautiful inside and out. We'll be back. Thank you.

The best Father's day surprise to date. Superb accommodation set in the beautiful west Wales countryside with views to die for. The quality and layout of the cottage made everything so special and relaxing at the same time. The children also enjoyed the gardens and farm, so much for them to see. We will certainly be revisiting. Thanks for everything.

Diolch! The Welsh is coming along now. Thank you for another great week & apologies for the boys cars.... We hope to see you again soon.

Wow- what a fantastic place, house is wonderful and fully equipped. We have enjoyed our stay, playing in the garden and visiting Bear & Lime at the horse yard. Alex (next door) and her son are very welcoming. We would definitely visit again. The local area is worth a visit but beware of the very steep climb back from the valley floor.

Helen, Ian, Rene, Eric & Alice say many thanks, what a fabulous place. We will return. Many thanks Mair for your attention to detail and the provision of a ramp to assist with access - very thoughtful. Best wishes.

The Talbot Hotel at Tregaron is also good and in Aberaeron there is a selection of top class eateries including the Manuka Restaurant. Aberystwyth too has a wide variety of eating and drinking places to choose from - do try the seafront restaurant Gwest Cymru on Marine Terrace - great food and lovely views!


  • A 10 minute drive from this comfortable holiday cottage is the vibrant university town of Aberystwyth.
  • Home to the National Library of Wales where you can visit the Art Centre and Theatre, with its year-round programme of events.
  • Aberystwyth nestles between 3 hills and has 2 beaches. With a wide, sweeping promenade overlooked by Victorian and Georgian buildings, there is also a pier and harbour as well as castle ruins.
  • A visit to the Ceredigion Museum on the high street is a must!
  • Try a ride on the longest electric cliff railway in Britain climbing to the top of Constitution Hill. There is a fantastic panoramic view, a 'Camera Obscura' and a caf for a little refreshment.

  • A small seaside village with a long sandy and shingle beach, popular with families and surfers alike.
  • At the southern end of the beach, you can sometimes see ancient remains of a submerged forest.
  • There are those who like to think that these are remains of Cantre'r Gwaelod, a legendary Welsh land which was flooded and lost through the carelessness of its night watchman.
  • Borth Animalarium is a zoo in miniature - home to a mixture of exotic and unusual animals such as monkeys, wallabies, snakes and crocodiles and also some more domestic animals that visitors are able to pet and feed.

The Magic of Life Butterfly House, Rheidol Valley

  • Come and see some of the largest and most colourful butterflies in the world! Walk among them and watch them feeding, courting and laying eggs.

Devils Bridge

  • Famous for the unique arrangement of its three bridges which are built one on top of the other, it is believed that the original bridge was built by either the Cistercian monks of Strata Florida abbey or by the Knights Templar. Various paths are accessed via coin-operated turnstiles that lead down to either side of the bridges.
  • The longest, steepest path goes right down to the valley floor giving wonderful views of spectacular cascading waterfalls and crossing the raging torrent before climbing back all the way up the other side.

The Hafod Estate

  • Travel a little further inland to the Hafod Estate in the Ystwyth Valley. Recognised as one of the finest examples in Europe of a Picturesque' landscape (an ideal which was part of the 18th Century Romantic Movement), this has been renovated and conserved and won an award for the Restoration of a Georgian Landscape in 2007.
  • If you enjoy walking this is a joy. The estate contains a number of laid-out paths which you can walk alone or with a guide. There are waterfalls, a narrow suspension bridge over a gorge, an obelisk built in 1805, narrow wooded valleys, open parkland, rushing streams and an alpine bridge. Amongst all of these is a huge variety of wildlife.

Strata Florida Abbey (Vale of Flowers)

  • This is an atmospheric and evocative, historically important site. The majesty of the huge carved west doorway illustrates how impressive this building must once have been.
