Dildre, meaning ’pretty home’ in Welsh, is a delightful two bedroomed holiday property, all on one level, attached to the owner’s home. Situated within their 30-acre working poultry and sheep farm in a rural location, Dildre has been thoughtfully furnished to give holidaymakers a very comfortable stay. The kitchen/dining room which also has a comfy sofa to enjoy the views, has direct access through the French doors on to a secluded patio, which is a tranquil place to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening drink. The cosy separate living room also provides direct access to another seating area at the front of the property, overlooking the farm to the countryside and hills beyond. The cottage has two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and a second shower room, making it perfect for couples or friends holidaying together. The land is encircled by a footpath and bridleway of approximately 2 miles, and stabling can be made available if you would like to bring a horse on holiday with you.
Dildre is ideally situated for exploring this diverse region of West Wales, and is perfect for a weekend break or a longer stay with award winning beaches (many pet-friendly year round), sandy coves, sea cliffs, caves and wonderful wildlife, amazing sunsets and starry skies. Less than 10 miles away, you can discover the attractive Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron with its colourful houses and an array of independent shops and lots of cafés, restaurants and pubs. There are many events and festivals held annually within the town, including a mackerel festival, the festival of Welsh ponies and cobs, beer and cider festival and a rugby sevens event. The National Trust Georgian country estate of Llanerchaeron, just 2½ miles south east of Aberaeron, can be reached from the town along a wide level pedestrian pathway, ideal for cyclists, pushchairs or wheelchairs.
Just a bit further down the coast, you will find the seaside town of New Quay, where the houses cling to the rocks, and the long harbour wall is the perfect place to enjoy fish and chips whilst you try to spot the regular visitors of bottlenose dolphins or just watch the boats bobbing. Boat trips are available in season and offer a spectacular view of the coastline, and the bay is home to an amazing variety of wildlife, both above and under the waves. A 20-minute drive towards the Cambrian Mountains will bring you the historic market town of Tregaron, centre for ‘Trotian’ - horse trotting and carriage racing. The annual summer event attracts competitors from all over the UK and Ireland. It is also the home of the Welsh Gold Centre selling Celtic inspired designs. Just outside the town, you can discover the Cors Caron Nature Reserve covering 2,000 acres.
Don’t forget to visit the seaside town of Aberystwyth whilst you are here and enjoy a ride on the Vale of Rheidol steam train to Devil’s bridge and waterfalls, or take the electric cliff railway to the summit of Constitution Hill to see the panoramic view of the coastline. You are assured of a Croeso Cynnes or warm Welsh welcome when you come to stay at Dildre. Beach 9½ miles. Shop, pub and resturant 4 miles.
