    Why not experience something truly unique for a short break or a longer stay? Cliff Railway Apartment is located above the station and ticket office at the base of the longest funicular electric cliff railway in Britain, which has been transporting visitors to the summit since opening in 1896. Situated at the northern end of Aberystwyth promenade, the apartment boasts very comfortable accommodation with sea views from the kitchen and direct views over the railway from the bedrooms. Guests are offered free passes on the railway for the duration of their stay (please note there are reduced operating days and times from November to mid March).

    The Aberystwyth Cliff Railway operated on a water balance system until electrification in 1921. Today the carriages are hauled to the summit at a stately four miles per hour, and travel majestically to the summit of Constitution Hill, rising dramatically from the sea, providing spectacular and uninterrupted views of the town, Cardigan Bay, and on a clear day, 26 mountain peaks spanning much of the length of Wales. Once at the summit visitors can experience the views afforded by the one of the world’s largest camera obscuras, which offers a bird’s eye view of 1000 square miles of land and seascape. There are also fascinating historical displays, a kids play area, a well-stocked gift shop, and a cafe selling delicious meals, homemade snacks and cakes. The café itself was used for filming during the popular TV detective series "Hinterland" as were many locations around Aberystwyth.

    Just a short stroll from the apartment is the beach and promenade, lined with Victorian buildings and leading to the pier. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping and a wide choice of places to eat in this university town, as well as castle ruins, the harbour, the National Library of Wales with a visitor centre, and Aberystwyth Arts Centre, a bustling entertainment venue. The surrounding hills hold the visible remains of an iron age fort and also a monument to Wellington and, once climbed offer stunning views of Cardigan Bay. Also not to be missed is a trip on the lovely Vale of Rheidol steam train, departing from Aberystwyth and travelling through the stunning Welsh countryside to the beautiful Devil’s Bridge waterfalls.

    Within very easy reach of Aberystwyth, there are golden sandy beaches, colourful seaside towns and villages, and places to explore such as the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve dominated by a sand dune landscape and home to an array of rare plants, wading birds and wildlife, including colourful orchids early in the summertime. With views inland and across the estuary to Aberdyfi, it is a great spot for walking or relaxing with boardwalks and trails through the dunes. Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian Forest Centre is a large woodland site with a host of activities including walks, cycle trails and red kite feeding with a shop and information centre. The peaceful wooded and landscaped Hafod Estate in the Ystwyth Valley has a variety of waymarked walks.

    Maesyfelin is situated in the delightful town of Tregaron, nestled at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains and within 30 minutes of the beautiful Ceredigion coastline making it an ideal base for exploring west Wales by foot, bike or car. The town received its royal charter in 1292 and it owes its origin and growth to its central location in the lush upper Teifi Valley. It is steeped in history and famous as a gathering place for the drovers who, before the advent of rail transport, herded large numbers of cattle, sheep and even geese hundreds of miles to the markets of south-east England. Today the very small town still has a friendly atmosphere and boasts independent shops and an award winning bar and restaurant in the Talbot Hotel, just seconds walk from the cottage.

    The rural surroundings of Tregaron are really an undiscovered gem. The sparsely populated county of Ceredigion offers roads largely untroubled by traffic and the footpaths and bridleways can often be explored without coming across another person. The terrain is excellent for cycling (on or off road), motorbike and motor touring, walking, birdwatching, fishing and horse riding. If you like to explore the culture and history of the area you can visit ancient churches, the ruined Cistercian Abbey of Strata Florida and remote chapels in the hills. The Tregaron to Abergwesyn mountain road is well worth driving, it offers wide open vistas of remote mountains and moorland, a world away from bustling cities and hectic motorways, and is probably the greatest wilderness in southern Britain.

    North of Tregaron is another famous landscape feature, Cors Caron, or Tregaron Bog, the largest raised bog in Britain. It is a peat bog of international importance and a nature reserve since 1955. This rare habitat is home to some very rare flora and fauna. It can easily be reached on foot from Tregaron town. This whole area is fantastic for wildlife, especially raptors such as buzzards, peregrine falcons, harriers and the iconic, attractive red kite.

    You can visit the university town of Aberystwyth with plenty to offer from its 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. The colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, and New Quay, a quaint fishing town with lovely beaches and famous for its seafood restaurants and boat rides, are also within easy reach for a day out.

    Maesyfelin has been tastefully furnished to offer every comfort for guests and is the perfect base to discover the wonderful area. Once you have visited you will be hooked! There will always be a warm welcome, or "croeso cynnes", as they say in Welsh, awaiting your return to Ceredigion!

Pony-trekking, fly fishing on the River Teifi and the Coracle Centre at Cenarth Falls (famous for its seasonal salmon leap) can all be found within 10 minutes’ drive.

    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.
