Cardigan/Ceredigion

The Cardigan/Ceredigion region is probably best known for its superb beaches and iconic harbour ports which make this stretch of coastline such a great place for a cottage holiday in Wales. It’s where Dylan Thomas was inspired to write some of his best work and with the Cambrian Mountains as the back drop you can relax and enjoy a region full of wildlife and natural beauty.

The region’s coastline offers mile after mile of golden sandy beaches, many of which have been awarded the coveted ‘Blue Flag’ award. Discover hidden coves and smugglers caves, old fishing harbours and magnificent cliffs where you can take the coastal path which extends some 60 miles.

There are two special areas of conservation here and a rich diversity of marine wildlife including Bottle Nosed dolphins, seals and sea birds. It’s easy to hop aboard one of the many boat trips that operate from New Quay and Cardigan to fully appreciate this designated ‘Marine Heritage Coast’.

Inland a great plateau rises to form the largest part of the Cambrian Mountains with Pumlumon Fawr its highest peak at 752m (2,468 feet). This large and remote plateau is broken up by steep valleys which include some of the most beautiful mountain passes in Wales.

Further explorations of local wildlife can be found at the Welsh Wildlife Centre. This great visitor centre stands on the Telfi Marshes Nature Reserve and, thanks to its glass fronted design and elevated position, offers incredible views of the surrounding area and a variety of wildlife.

Some visitor attractions and activities of interest include the National Wool Museum were you can learn all about the region’s sheep farming heritage, or if you’re feeling adventurous try the Cardigan Bay Watersports and Sea School.

The cottage, in the hamlet of Aberbanc, is just a few miles from the interesting market town of Newcastle Emlyn with a wide choice of shopping and eateries and is fast becoming the place to go for those browsing for antiques. 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.

Dolphin, wildlife watching and fishing boat trips are available in season.

    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.

    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.

Here you will find an array of independent shops and a selection of places to eat and drink, from pubs and cafes to bistros and restaurants, and of course fish and chips and the famous honey ice cream. Aberaeron hosts a series of events during the season, Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs, the Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival, Aberaeron Regatta, Beer & Wine Festival, Tug of War across the harbour, Rugby 7’s, Carnival and a Mackerel Festival. From the town you can also join the unspoilt Ceredigion Coastal Path offering excellent walking opportunities taking you over cliffs and through ancient woodland and connecting all the local beaches.
    Delightful New Quay is a few miles away with picturesque houses, pubs and restaurants, the town clings to the sides of the hills rising above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay. Often bottlenose dolphins can be spotted and in season dolphin survey boat trips are available from the sheltered harbour, or you can just enjoy the sandy beach. Within easy reach are the ancient towns of Cardigan with its castle, or Aberystwyth with a promenade, pier and the world’s longest working electric cliff railway.

    Ref: OT6


    Nestled peacefully amongst the rolling countryside, with spectacular views over the picturesque Teifi Valley and rugged Preseli Hills of Pembrokeshire, these four traditional Welsh barns have been lovingly restored. These properties (refs OQ6, OT5, OT6 and OT7) make a perfect touring base for couples or families looking for a unique holiday experience. The former barns date back to the 18th century and have been sympathetically restored to retain all of their original charm and character. Welcoming touches have been added, including blazing wood-burning stoves for those cosy nights in. Sit back and relax in the beautiful grounds, or for the more active, enjoy the numerous leisure facilities Penwern Fach has to offer, including a golf practice, a football field, children’s play area and games room, a great distraction for inclement weather. There is also a building on-site that offers wi-fi and is shared between the cottages. A short distance away lies the charming village of Cenarth, which is famous for its salmon leaping, glistening waterfalls and the nearby country club which offers excellent facilities for guests to enjoy, including a bar, swimming pool and Jacuzzi (£3.30 pp per day), sauna and gym (discounted rates). The area itself has lots to offer, including fantastic walks along the nearby Preseli Hills, where visitors can discover the numerous trails and enchanted sites scattered along the rolling countryside. Conveniently located on the edge of the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion borders, guests can explore the dramatic coastlines and discover the pretty coastal towns of Aberaeron, New Quay and Newport, offering a collection of seafood restaurants, boutique gift shops and unblemished beaches, where dolphins and seals can be spotted on a clear day! Away from the coast, the countryside is just as promising, and home to a number of historic sites and charming market towns dotted around the county, including Newcastle Emlyn and Cardigan. Just a 45-minute drive away are the thrilling leisure parks of Tenby. Beach 6 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile.
