About Crog Loft Cottage

The perfect Welsh holiday awaits in this delightful, characterful, beamed Welsh cottage.

  • A truly unique cottage, immersed in nature, surrounded by fresh air and tranquillity, with perfect home comforts too.
  • Once partly a milking parlour, probably dating back to the 18th century, renovated in the most sympathetic way to provide charming, comfortable accommodation, sleeping 4, (with 1 extra bed for a child).
  • Guests are welcome to walk through the adjoining field when the sheep are not grazing. N.B Dogs to be kept under control when there's sheep in the field.
  • Wander inside and enjoy the tasteful unfettered simplicity of this charming cottage. A step back in time, but with every comfort at your fingertips.
  • The well equipped, traditional cottage kitchen will inspire your inner chef.
  • Get a real taste of the countryside at local produce markets, held regularly in local towns or the local farm shops. The rustic pine table provides the ideal spot for leisurely meals.
  • Relax in the two cottage sitting rooms. The Cwtch sits just off the kitchen. With underfloor heating and a wood burning stove, you can laze away the day until your heart's content with a good book, on the comfortable sofas in peace and tranquillity.
  • The larger sitting room with wood burner, is a joy, light and airy under the thatched part of the roof, with lots of glass beckoning nature and blue skies in.
  • The little thatch roof is made from long wheat straw grown near Builth Wells. The wheat flour was used to make the owner's wedding cake.
  • The two hushed bedrooms are delightful, promising a peaceful night's sleep. You'll love the traditional crog loft sleeping platform, with the original ladder or the 2nd ensuite master bedroom accessed via stairs from the Cwtch. Both bedrooms are sympathetically furnished, with traditional Welsh woollen furnishings from the local woollen mills.
  • The deceptively spacious accommodation offers practical space for family or friends, with a useful utility room all your laundry needs and dog care.
  • This wonderful retreat is just far off enough off the beaten track for a tranquil escape, ideal for strolling along the nearby leafy lanes and through the fields, when the sheep are not grazing,
  • The setting is a celebration of what this kind of experience is all about. A perfect getaway throughout the year.

We liked everything! That's a stunning, comfy, beautiful cottage!It has all the facilities you need for perfect breakaway of the busy life or holiday. Cosy living room with fireplace for cold weather. Owners provide one big basket of logs, quite enough for two nights-depends weather condition. Owners themselves are very friendly, and we got a very warm welcome when we arrived! We absolutely fall-in-love this cottage straight away. It made our Xmas one of the best ever! Can imagine us to live there forever :-) Thanks

We arrived late, but had been given precise instructions how to find the cottage, and the lights had been turned on everywhere, giving a real 'croeso' to tired travellers. The care and love put into the restoration/ upgrading of this traditional Welsh cottage oozed from every corner. Although an old cottage, the facilities were ultramodern, and also- the icing on the cake- eco friendly. Excellent choice of books too. All in all an excellent retreat location.

Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. The host was very nice and gave us plenty of information on activities to do in wales, places to visit and so on. It was very nice to have some quiet time far from everything and the cottage is just perfect for this purpose because you can easily drive to the beaches during the day or simply go for walks and have a glass of wine in the garden enjoying the view.

Llandysul

  • Llandysul is a market town in the Welsh county of Cardiganshire. Sitting on the banks of the river Teifi, the small, idyllic and unspoilt market town is steeped in history and Welsh culture. The town offers a variety of shops, and is in the ideal location for walkers and cyclists, just a short drive away are the glorious beaches in Cardigan Bay.

Newcastle Emlyn

  • A pretty market town sitting on the banks of the River Teifi.
  • Explore the 13th-century castle ruins, founded around 1240 by the Welsh Prince, Maredudd ap Rhys.
  • Along the main street you will find an inviting selection of cafes, restaurants and pubs, along with an interesting range of independent shops.
  • There's a lovely circular walk along the banks of the river.

Cardigan Coastal Path

  • The walk along the sweeping crescent of Cardigan Bay forms a very special part of the Wales Coast Path. The 60-mile section has the most varied landscape and terrain of the 870-mile length of the Path.
  • As well as the great views north towards Snowdonia and south towards Pembrokeshire, the Cardigan Coast path has wildlife, geological and archaeological features, with a colourful history along the way.

Beaches of Cardigan Bay

  • Within a short drive from the cottage are many beautiful beaches including LLangrannog, New Quay, Aberaeron, Mwnt, Tresaith & Poppit Sands.

Aberaeron

  • 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.

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!

Pencastell Motte, Llangeler

  • Thought to be a medieval castle motte, set on a relatively level shelf. It's still in a very good state of preservation. The motte is densely covered by trees, but has a modern path running down to a field.

Welsh National Woollen Museum, Drefach Felindre

  • Located in the historic former Cambrian Mills, follow the process from Fleece to Fabric and visit the sympathetically restored listed mill building and historic machinery.
  • A raised walkway gives a unique view of textiles in production at Melin Teifi, the site's commercial woollen mill, while the Textile Gallery displays aspects of the National Flat Textile Collection
  • The cafe offers visitors a range of food & drink in lovely surroundings.

Cenarth Falls

  • Cenarth is a charming small community straddling the river Teifi between Cardigan & Newcastle Emlyn. The river Teifi has made its way through the hard rocks to produce a spectacular series of waterfalls.
  • Cenarth is one of the very few locations where coracles are still used. These traditional small Welsh boats can be seen on the Teifi, the Towy and the Taf where they are used for net fishing for salmon & sewin fishing.
  • The Coracle Museum at Cenarth has a display showing how coracles are made and used with examples of coracles around the world. Traditionally coracles are made of strips or laths of Willow or Ash, which are covered with calico or canvas, pitched and tarred & and may be carried on the shoulders of the coracle men.

Teifi Harp Centre, Llandysul

The Harp Centre of Wales is the home of all things harp. From the premises in Llandysul the bespoke Telynau Celtic and Lever harps are made, which are sought after by harpists, worldwide.
