Delve into Y Dorlan, as you arrive you will sweep down a private driveway surrounded by paddocks to approach this architect-designed, truly unique lodge, nestled on the banks of the River Teifi. The encompassing gardens reach down to the river banks. Y Dorlan really is the perfect base from which to explore the local charms of the bustling, historic market town of Cardigan, on the edge of the dramatic Ceredigion coastline.
This beautiful lodge is full of character and features a large, spiral, open-tread staircase in the grand hallway with some rooms focusing on the views of the meandering river. You may prefer to get a closer view of the Teifi from the sun terrace, relaxing with a glass of wine in your private hot tub, or star gazing into the clear night sky. Al fresco dining is sublime, with a large built in barbecue to cook your catch of the day. Imagine waking up and heading for the sauna followed by swim in your indoor swimming pool - truly magnificent!
This lodge is perfect for families and larger groups who want to explore the three counties of Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. Just a stone’s throw across the River Teifi is the Welsh Wildlife Centre which is one of the best wetland reserves in Wales, where a huge diversity of wildlife is waiting to be discovered. You may prefer to explore the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre where you can learn how to spot dolphins, porpoise and Atlantic grey seals.
Cardigan Castle has undergone a major renovation project, and with over 900 years of history is well worth a visit. For those keen to explore the area on foot, the coastal footpath is truly wonderful, or inland, explore the Preseli Hills.
