Gerlan is also the perfect base for discovering all that the dramatic west Wales coastline has to offer and many wonderful cycle routes and walks are available, both coastal and inland including the coastal path walks.

    Gerlan is a quaint town cottage built around 1866 sometime after the railway arrived in Tregaron. Tregaron was once a very strategic point for taking animals from the farms in West Wales to markets in England. Before the railways, it is said around 30,000 animals were escorted overland on drovers’ roads through the Cambrian Mountains. The trading importance of the town was such that it even had its own ’Black Sheep Aberystwyth and Tregaron Bank’, and the number of black sheep engraved on the bank notes issued indicated the number of pounds value.

    The Cambrian Mountains are one of the few remote areas left in southern Britain, and Tregaron lies close to this wild open wilderness. Although there are only few roads across the mountains they are acknowledged as some of the most scenic routes in Britain and walkers and cyclists revel in the peaceful solitude.

    The current owners of Gerlan have lovingly restored the property so that it now provides the perfect base to discover this wonderful part of Wales. The ground floor has a country kitchen leading into a spacious living and dining room, and an attractive stone fireplace with a wood burning stove so that you can be cosy year round. A ground floor bathroom and two first floor bedrooms complete this quaint cottage. 100 yards from the cottage, in an elevated position, there is a natural lawned garden, with a bench, providing an ideal spot to sit and enjoy a quiet drink and appreciate the lovely views over the town, and to the hills beyond.

    Today, historic Tregaron is a ’Walkers are Welcome’ town, and the annual walking festival held in May is a firm favourite on the walking calendar. Competitors and visitors come from all over the UK and Ireland for the annual horse trotting and carriage racing too. It is also the home of the Welsh Gold Centre, selling Celtic inspired designs.

    The town is small and has a friendly village atmosphere. A short stroll will bring you to independent shops, and on the square, the award winning pub and restaurant, the renowned Talbot Hotel. Also standing proudly on the square is a wood carving depicting Twm Siôn Cati, the legendary 17th-century ’Robin Hood of Wales’ who is said to have used his wit and bravery to outsmart gentry and crooks alike.

    Cors Caron, or Tregaron Bog as it is also known, is the largest raised bog in Britain and lies just outside the town. It is a peat bog of international importance and a nature reserve since 1955. It provides a habitat to very rare flora and fauna and is fantastic for wildlife spotting, including buzzards, peregrine falcons, harriers and iconic red kites.

    The beautiful Ceredigion coastline can be reached within 30 minutes drive and offers lovely beaches (many dog friendly year round), and interesting towns and villages to visit. The university town of Aberystwyth has a historic castle, long promenade and pier, plus it is home to one of Wales’ most picturesque steam train journeys through the valley over to Devil’s Bridge. Georgian harbour town Aberaeron, and quaint fishing town of New Quay, are also great places to go for restaurants, shops, boat rides and dolphin spotting.

    Gerlan sits across a private no-through lane from property reference UK6062 Hen Efail, and they can be booked together to accommodate larger parties. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Escape to the wonderful comfort of Ivy Bush Cottage nestled within the ancient, charming and tranquil village of Llandewi Brefi, at the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. Situated in a row of four stone cottages originally all owned by the owner’s great-great grandfather 150 years ago, Ivy Bush (Bwthyn Iorwg in Welsh) is now one of three cottages still owned by the family today. It has been lovingly restored and has high quality and comfort in abundance. Exposed stone work, beams and a multi-fuel stove all go towards making it a characterful and cosy holiday retreat for guests.
    The village lies on the banks of the Afon Brefi and dates back to the 1st century when Romans set up camp in a settlement known as Bremia (bubbling stream). There is an interesting local legend to discover whilst here as to how the village later came to be known as Llandewi Brefi! In centuries gone by it was a thriving and bustling place on the drovers route taking livestock to London and beyond. Today the village is rather more peaceful but still has a village shop for your essential supplies and two warm and welcoming inns.
    The area abounds with walks and cycle routes (plenty starting from the cottage) and mountain biking opportunities. The market town of Tregaron is 3 miles away with shops, the Rhiannon Welsh Gold Centre, and an award-winning restaurant and pub. Just a mile beyond, you will find the stunning Cors Caron Nature Reserve, over 2000 acres of finest raised bog system with an access-friendly boardwalk route through it. Visit the ruins of the 12th-century Cistercian Abbey at Strata Florida and explore the Cambrian Mountains by car, bicycle or on foot. A variety of guided walking tours are available via local organisers.
    A 35-minute drive will bring you to the fantastic Ceredigion coastline with its beaches (many are dog friendly year-round), dolphin-watching boat trips, the town of Aberystwyth with its cliff railway, pier and long promenade and the attractive Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, famous for its honey ice cream.
    Back at Ivy Bush you can enjoy an al fresco meal in the enclosed garden, looking out across the Welsh slate rooftops towards the village church and you will very likely see red kites soaring overhead and hear their distinctive cry. After splendid days out exploring this wonderful area, sink into the luxurious handmade organic mattresses and dream of return journeys to this region of extraordinary natural beauty. Beach 20 miles.

    Ref: OZX

    Tan Y Dderwen (Under The Oak, ref OZV), Beudy Bach (Little Cowshed, ref OZW) and Gwel-Y-Llyn (Lake View, ref OZX) are beautiful conversions of traditional Welsh long barns whilst The Farmhouse, (ref OYV) is a bespoke, extremely spacious holiday property furnished to the highest of standards.
    Located in a tranquil setting surrounded by rolling countryside, these wonderful family holiday properties boast character and all the comforts for the perfect countryside holiday.
    Close to the borders of both mid and south Wales, the properties provide perfect accommodation ideally placed for exploring the dramatic Ceredigion coastline where bottlenose dolphins are often seen.
    The picturesque fishing town of Aberaeron is only six miles away with shops and its large harbour encased by pastel-shaded Georgian houses. A short drive inland leads to the rural and traditional towns of Lampeter and Tregaron, where the Welsh language is mostly used by the locals. Tregaron feels almost untouched by the 21st century and is a bastion of the Welsh language and culture. The river running through the town centre leads to Cors Caron, a national nature reserve of peat bog which is one of the most impressive wildlife areas in Wales; home to rare marsh grasses, black adders, buzzards and even the occasional red kite. A perfect opportunity to discover the real Wales. Shops 3 miles, pub in village.
