    The semi-detached barn conversions of Awel Y Mynydd (ref OY3) and Golygfar Mynydd (ref OY4), meaning Mountain Breeze and Mountain View respectively, have been lovingly created by the neighbouring owners to provide luxurious holiday accommodation in a wonderful setting on their working sheep farm, taking full advantage of the stunning views and total tranquillity of the rolling hills and Cambrian Mountains, where there is an abundance of wildlife and red kites. Featuring exposed stonework, beams, slate flooring, bespoke oak kitchens, luxury roll top baths and cosy wood-burning stoves, these holiday homes are a perfect base at any time of year. A warm Welsh welcome is assured by the owners, or ‘Croeso Cynnes’ as the locals say.
    About 1 mile away lies Strata Florida Abbey, the remains of a medieval Cistercian abbey, founded in 1164. The preserved ruins of its church and cloisters are open to visitors. Beside it are the burial grounds where celebrated Welsh poet and writer Dafydd ap Gwilym and several Welsh princes are buried. The village of Pontrhydfendigaid offers pubs serving meals and village shop for essentials. Nearby, historic Tregaron has an award-winning pub and restaurant, the Welsh Gold Centre renowned for handmade, Celtic-inspired jewellery, Welsh tea room and art exhibition, and is a ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town. The annual Bro Tregaron Walking Festival is held in May, and the town is also as a centre for horse trotting and carriage racing. Tregaron also holds festivals to honour Twm Sion Cati, who originated from the region and is celebrated as the ‘Robin Hood of Wales’. The town itself was a strategic point for drovers taking animals from west Wales to markets in England - they were driven overland through the Cambrian Mountains to markets in London and even as far as Kent. The Tregaron to Abergwesyn mountain road was originally the first stage of the drover’s route, now a stunning scenic drive.
    The Cambrian Mountains and Tywi Forest are a paradise for walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders, where trails lead to the Strata Florida Abbey, Cwm Doethie, Elan Valley, Llanddewi Brefi, Cors Caron, Soar-y-Mynydd and picturesque Llyn Brianne Reservoir, all renowned for their breathtaking views. Guided walks are available through the Cambrians including Hinterland walks, exploring the locations used in the well-known TV detective series. The wonderful Cors Caron Nature Reserve, set between Tregaron and Pontrhydfendigaid covers over 2,000 acres and comprises three raised bogs built up from deep layers of peat that have taken around 12,000 years to form. It is a wild landscape made accessible by a network of boardwalks that enable visitors to get right into the heart of varied habitats, with over 170 species of birds having been recorded. Within walking distance are the remote lakes of Teifi Pools - Llyn Egnant, Llyn Hir and Llyn Teifi surrounded by open moorland; the lakes are renowned for their quality brown trout, and angling permits are available locally. Within ½ mile lies an ancient holy healing well connected with medieval religious foundations and miraculous healing powers. For walkers, the 21-mile Ystwyth Trail follows some parts of the old Great Western Railway line, connecting Aberystwyth with Tregaron, and Lampeter with Devils Bridge. Within an easy drive is the Ceredigion Heritage coastline with its coastal path and golden beaches, or enjoy dolphin watching, boat trips and visiting colourful seaside towns and villages such as Aberaeron, New Quay and Aberystwyth.
    After a day exploring this magical area, the serene environment makes the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. Beach 17 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2¾ miles.

    Ref: SSAK

    These historic cottages (refs SSAJ to SSAQ) are set within the stunning Blairquhan Castle Estate in a beautiful valley with the River Girvan winding through. Blairquhan Castle, a Regency era castle, is protected as a category A listed building and the grounds are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland, the national listing of significant gardens. Used as a location for the Oscar winning film The Queen, starring Helen Mirren, Blairquhan has also featured in other TV programmes.

    The stables, designed by William Burn in 1820-24, are also of architectural interest and, along with the lodges on the estate, form the holiday accommodation. Blairquhan Bridge was also designed by William Burn; it is a single arch, stone, hump-back bridge, possibly 18th-century and B listed. The woods of Blairquhan are a major feature of landscape. Beautifully integrated into the 200 acres of parkland that make up the estate, the unique gardens at Blairquhan Castle were originally laid out back in 1816 and much of the landscaping still remains to this day, most notably the unique walled garden. The rising ground to the south allowed the landscapers to create an unusual three-walled perimeter. During its construction the main wall was built with flues installed so that it could be heated to protect the precious fruit trees during the colder Scottish months. A famous tree at Blairquhan is the ’Dool’ tree, a large sycamore sited on the lawn to the east of the house was used for execution by hanging after trial by the laird. With well-established woodlands, beautifully manicured lawns, an avenue of 18th-century lime trees and many other magnificent vistas, the estate creates a unique atmosphere and provides the ideal holiday surroundings to escape everyday life.

    Nestled in the heart of Burns’ Country, the area is steeped in tradition and history. Fans of Burns will be able to visit many attractions including Burns Cottage, the Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’Doon - the bridge from the famous poem Tam o’Shanter. Blairquhan is within walking distance to the small Ayrshire village of Straiton, and a short drive from Kirkmichael and Maybole. The entire area is known for its gently rolling landscape and hills dotted with sheep and traversed by the winding River Girvan. On a clear day, Ailsa Craig can be seen in the distance.

    Ayrshire is home to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long coastal walk with one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals; it is also a haven for bird watchers.

    Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit and activities such as riding, racing and golf to enjoy. The many golf courses include the world famous Turnberry course which is close at hand. Culzean Castle (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction.

    Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan, and a short drive leads to Ayr, a traditional seaside town. Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh are perfect for a day out, as is Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, with ferry links to the islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae all within easy reach.
