    Plas Tanybwlch, now converted into luxury apartments, nestles in 7 acres of grounds just south of Aberystwyth, with dramatic vistas of the sea and views of no less than three castles. The main entrance to Plas Tanybwlch leads to a grand reception hallway and the apartments Valley View No.3 (ref OU8) and Sea View No.4 (ref OU9) are located on the first floor via a grand staircase. They have been restored, keeping the original 19th-century features including architrave, plasterwork, internal shutters and sash windows, and are stylishly furnished to include every comfort and convenience. The building is an imposing Grade II listed mansion house with an illustrious background. Built in 1835 by a Napoleonic war hero, it has been a WWII isolation hospital, a catering college and owned by a rock star with recording studios used by many famous music artists, a shrine to Jimi Hendrix once existed. A comfortable 30-minute beach walk or a 15-minute cycle along a Sustrans route will bring you to the university town of Aberystwyth, where you will discover the pier and promenade, castle, and the National Library of Wales (free guided tours available). Constitution Hill has a cliff railway to the summit as well as an unusual Camera Obscura allowing you to look back over the whole of Aberystwyth through a camera lens. The Aberystwyth Arts Centre is a top quality entertainment centre and considered the best in Wales outside of Cardiff. From Aberystwyth you can take the steam train on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to Devil’s Bridge. There are 60 miles of coastal paths in Ceredigion accessible from here and if you prefer a day out without the car, a ¾-mile walk will bring you to the stop where the buses go north or south to a variety of destinations, such as New Quay, where you may take a dolphin watching boat trip, and Aberaeron, a Georgian harbour town famous for its coloured houses and chic shops, cafés and restaurants. Ceredigion has a wealth of things to see and do whilst on holiday - from unsurpassed beaches, renowned nature reserves, historic houses and gardens and interesting coastal and inland towns and villages. Whatever your interest, you won’t be short of ways to fill your days. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant 2 miles.

The owners, who live next door, have created an elegant and comfortable holiday home in a peaceful spot. From here you can see the summit of Britain’s longest electric cliff railway, operating since 1896. The top of the hill has one of the largest Camera Obscuras in the world, a café and restaurant, and is only a 6-minute walk from Seascape. Aberystwyth is west Wales’ premier seaside resort and a historic town, offering varied shopping, bars and restaurants, art centres with theatre and cinema, pier and long promenade, castle ruins, the National Library of Wales (tours available) or take the Vale of Rheidol steam train to Devil’s Bridge and Waterfalls.

    These two beautiful, adjoining holiday properties have been lovingly restored from historic farm buildings. Eithinog meaning gorse, (ref OW5), has been converted from a cow and calf shed, and Helygen meaning willow, (ref OW4), converted from the adjoining stables, granary and hayloft. They lie in the peaceful, rural location at the edge of the Cambrians, amongst 350 acres of farmland and with wonderful views, and even a panoramic view of the coastline from the hillside. Just a mile away is Talybont village with local amenities, including well-known pubs and restaurant. At the nearby seaside resort of Aberystwyth, you can walk the promenade, take the cliff railway to the biggest Camera Obscura in the world, or catch the steam train to Devil’s Bridge and Waterfalls. Nature lovers will appreciate the abundance of walking available, from the stunning Ynyslas Nature Reserve and sand dunes to the Bwlch Nant Yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre. There is also a visitor centre where you can watch majestic red kites feeding over the nearby lake.

    Cardigan Bay is home to bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals. A dolphin survey boat trip will give you the opportunity to learn from expert volunteers about the work that goes into maintaining this Special Area of Conservation.


    The Dyfi Valley and Aberystwyth area is indeed a special place, in terms of the landscape, wildlife, the people and culture, and the area’s history and heritage.

The Cambrian Mountains offer an ideal destination for mountain bikers who enjoy a wild and rugged experience. There are biking trails, walking trails and a variety of other attractions in the area.


    The owners of Eithinog and Helygen have created two extremely well-appointed and comfortable holiday homes and you are assured of a warm Welsh welcome. They have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH the Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Lying in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, this unique detached stone cottage makes an unforgettable experience for a family or couples alike. The first record of Llechwedd Mawr dates back to 1587 when a farmer, Richard Morgan, rented the land. It was the traditional way back then to graze cattle through the summer and make butter and cheese to sell in the neighbouring villages. A survey of 1811 described the building as "a stone house with a slate cover in good repair and that with 983 acres the rent shall be £22 per annum."

    Over the following years the house saw many changes and occupants until the 1950s when it became inaccessible due to a hydro-electric dam being built, and it stood abandoned and isolated for many years until a road was made. The present owners purchased the land and cottage in the 1980s and it was used merely to store sheep food until its complete renovation in 2011 and then two years later it was transformed into the uniquely positioned and beautiful holiday home it is today.

    The owners have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH The Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales.

    There are mountain views from all windows and a scenic route leads you from the village of Talybont over the Nant-y-Moch Dam to Ponterwyd and Devil’s Bridge. On your approach to the cottage, ‘Pumlumon’ - the highest peak in the Cambrian Mountain range - will come into full view with its 760 square mile vastness of heather, forest, shimmering lakes and sourcing the mighty Severn and Wye rivers. This high country of compelling emptiness defies civilisation, providing a natural playground for ramblers, mountain bikers and bird watchers alike. If you can drag yourself away from the tranquillity of Llechwedd Mawr, the nearby charming towns of Aberystwyth, Machynlleth and Aberaeron are well worth a visit, offering traditional Welsh pubs, boutique shops and sandy beaches where dolphins and porpoises are often spotted on a clear day. Horse riding nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant, 8 miles.
