Prepare to be enchanted as you drive down to this charming luxury hideaway cottage in Ceredigion. This perfect cottage is within 10 minutes drive of the Cardigan Bay Coast. Welcomes up to 3 dogs.
We have loved our stay - thank you so much. I like your style and it's been so comfortable.
What a beautiful place. We were totally impressed by the cottage it's beautifully presented, immaculately clean and incredibly welcoming. We were especially touched by the welcome goods was very thoughtful. The guides to local walks were very helpful and we managed two out of three. We have enjoyed exploring the surrounding countryside and the beaches. Llangrannog is our favourite lovely sand and lots of room to play. We'd recommend Pizza Tippi too! April 2018
Thank you so much for the most amazing weekend. This place !!! the attention to detail, the little things have left me with so much inspiration to sort my own home out. Louise and Phil, you have taken us back in time with a twist of the modern well done you guys for creating this perfect hide out. We all enjoyed our stay, yes, even our 13 year old daughter and the 3 dogs will be sad to leave and go back to reality. Simply Wow! Anyhow Pizza Tippi is a YES! Llangrannog beach wins hands down over Newquay for us. The dogs enjoyed. The attention to detail is incredible we will be back if you'll have us. June 2018
A really enjoyable week. Perfect place, perfect weather. Would recommend the La Calibria restaurant. june 2018
What a week we've had. I can't not mention the weather. Wall to wall sunshine every day for the whole week, simply beautiful. But then we've had this lovely cottage and it's garden too. This place is peaceful, away from it all and yet it's not that far from the glorious coastline. We went to Cei Bach beach with the dogs and did the local walks from the cottage but it was too hot for our dogs to go too far. The garden though was lovely for them and us, plenty of shade when it got too much. Thank you for your hospitality, we've loved the whole experience. Ann + Graham plus Molly, Amber + Daisy - June 2018
Thank you for all you did towards us having a lovely holiday here.
We managed to visit 7 beaches, New Quay, Llangrannog, Cwmtydu, Mwnt, Tresaith, and Penbryn each one different, all of them beautiful. Also visited a lovely garden near Lampeter called Cae Hir.
Really enjoyed the wood stove in the evenings. Most of all though, came away with a sense that the house has been put together with enormous care and genuine sensitivity.
You have created an oasis of calm in this beautiful environment. It was just what we needed from our busy and stressful work environment/lives!
The addition of goodies in the fridge just added to the welcome. Loved watching the birds at the feeders in front of the kitchen window. A home from home with everything anyone could need. Hope to be back next Spring.
Rained most of the weekend. Despite that we really enjoyed the cottage and the garden. Nice dinner at the Harbourmaster in Aberaeron. Walks in the woods and on the beach. Visited a National Trust event at the Regency house, Llanerchaeron.
Huge thank you to Louise and Phil for making this such a special stay. The cottage is so warm and comfortable. The generous amount of firewood and the welcome gifts were just part of the thoughtful way that visitors are made to feel at home.
We love the way the cottage and garden have been set up for maximum relaxation. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will now face the New Year with recharged batteries.
Thanks so much! You have done an amazing job of making Woodland Dell a gem! We really enjoyed our stay. The food and drink and the logs, firepit etc really make it special. We hope to return soon!
Love it!! Don't want to go home! Got exactly what we were after, a quiet hideaway ideal for couples and dogs. Loved the garden & firepit. Cottage cosy and comfortable. Recommend The Daffodil inn at Penrhiwllan for Sunday lunch (SA44 5NG). We just had a perfect weekend. Thank you.
Wow! What a superb cottage, just what we were after but 100% more than we could have expected. We don't believe there could be another cottage so lovingly looked after. Woodland dell is wonderfully cosy with such great attention to detail. The additional extras you supplied were very much appreciated and a lovely touch.
We visited many places mentioned by others, in addition we went to Bwlch Nant yr Arian near Aberystwyth to see the Red Kites being fed. What an incredible sight of over a hundred Red Kites feeding in a beautiful location. A definite must to visit!
It is going to be so hard to go home and leave the tranquility and beauty of the haven, Woodland Dell. Thank you so much, we will be back very soon we hope! We look forward to enjoying the firepit which we didn't get an opportunity to use on our stay.
This is our second stay here at Woodland Dell. On arrival there was a dusting of snow which created a beautiful scene. The cottage was as gorgeous as our last stay with the addition of Christmas decorations. I loved all the little trolls so much I was inspired to purchase some from the gallery/craft shop in Newport.
We have had a relaxing stay with day trips out to Cardigan, Newport, Narberth and St Davids. Misty has enjoyed zooming on Llangrannog and Newport beaches and doing circuits in the garden.
Thank you very much for the large supply of wood to keep the cottage nice and cosy, the wine, prossecco and all the extras. You really do make Woodland Dell special.
The garden has been very busy with the woodpecker, all the birds and 3 of the fatest squirrels I have seen!
We hope to be back very soon.

Cardiganshire Heritage Coast and Coastal Path
Within an easy drive is the whole of the beautiful Cardiganshire Heritage Coast with its coves and beaches all linked by the Coastal Path - stunning coastal scenery, bird and marine life galore!
60 miles of delightful coastal path linking towns & villages with spectacular scenery, wild flowers, seabirds and a wealth of wildlife along the way.
Llangrannog, once infamous as a smuggler's haunt, is a pretty seaside cove at the mouth of a narrow valley with a sheltered, sandy beach overlooked by 'The Ship' - good bar food and drink, two cafes and a general store.
A sheltered bay, with a slipway and popular with sailors, is named after the River Saith which spectacularly cascades over the clifftops on to the golden beach overlooked by the welcoming Ship Inn - relax on the heated sea terrace with a drink and spot the dolphins.
This small village has two fabulous beaches separated by a small rocky outcrop.
The more southerly of the two beaches is the most popular for families and for sunbathing while the northern beach is ideal for launching pleasure boats, including sailing boats, kayaks and canoes.
Close to the beaches there is a small seaside cafe, a souvenir shop and a friendly pub for good food and drink.
Places to Eat
Pachamama in Newcastle Emlyn is a real delight. Just a 10 minute drive away this charming little restaurant offers great choices of food from all over the world.
The Daffodil is a locals favourite for Sunday Lunch. This food-led country pub is set in the pretty village of Penrhiwllan and is dog friendly.
Hammet House - a splendid 18th century country mansion which now has new owners and has been refurbished with a mixture of old and new furnishings, all adding to its stylish look. Open all day and every day including Sunday.
The Pizza Tipi in Cardigan is also well worth a visit. Open from April to October you can enjoy wood fired pizzas and local craft beers in the riverside courtyard.
Cilgerran Castle National Trust
The striking romantic ruin of Cilgerran Castle has inspired many artists including Turner. It stands overlooking the Teifi river where it merges with the Plysgog stream. Therefore it was able to patrol both a natural crossing place and the passage of sea going ships. Powerful twin towers remain.
Aberaeron Harbour Town & Beach
Aberaeron is a Georgian jewel with elegant colour washed houses surrounding the harbour - reputedly planned and designed by John Nash, with a shingle beach.
There is a range of small, interesting shops, craft centres, pubs and the award winning Harbourmaster' s Restaurant (Good Food Guide and Gold Award, Wales) and The Hive on the Quay, famous for its honey ice cream.
Cycle on the designated cycle trail from Aberaeron to Llanerchaeron - a country gentleman's estate now owned by the National Trust - well worth a visit.
Lots to see and do in and around the town - two beaches to enjoy, Cardigan Golf Course (18 holes with glorious views) and dolphin spotting boat trips from the Teifi Boat Club pontoon at the Patch beach (In season).
A great family day out sea angling, fishing for salmon/sea trout on the River Aeron or take a cycle ride along one of the 5 Wales Cycle Trails.
Cardigan town has a high street lined with Georgian shop fronts, market, a thriving theatre/cinema and a recently restored castle.
