Situated in an elevated position with commanding views across Cardigan Bay and the countryside, Bay View Cottage has been stylishly finished to provide an exceptionally spacious home with ample outside space including the bonus of a huge balcony leading directly from the bedroom where you will appreciate the tranquillity of your surroundings as you watch the spectacular sunsets and starry dark skies. In addition to your own private garden, the owners (who live next door) invite you to explore their three acres of natural grounds and pond. The village of Llanon, with pub and shops for the essentials, is just half a mile away and from here it is a short walk to the sea front.
    Ceredigion and the Heritage Coastline is a distinctive Welsh region with a thriving cultural identity and the perfect area for a weekend break or longer stay. It boasts award-winning sandy beaches, coves (many are dog friendly all year round), cliffs, varied wildlife and birdwatching.

Each holiday cottage is different but all are equally comfortable and with unique features. The Grade II listed detached cottage, Bwthyn Barri (ref OW9) is believed to have been built in 1711 and is full of character with beams and exposed stonework, and has an inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove.

    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.

    Dating back to the 1850s and once a cow shed and dairy, Ddol Cottage is now a homely, semi-detached stone cottage with a cosy wood burner and lovely open views. Situated next door to the owners’ home, this delightful holiday cottage is in a beautiful rural setting and is conveniently located for the attractive towns and villages of Ceredigion’s Heritage Coast; there are glimpses of the sea from your own enclosed cottage garden. The owners are also happy for you to visit the resident donkeys in the neighbouring paddock (children to be supervised).

    This is the perfect base for discovering all that the dramatic west Wales coastline has to offer. There are many wonderful cycle routes and walks available, both coastal and inland. The pretty cove of Llangrannog with its beachside pubs, restaurants and cafes is just over three miles away, and within easy reach is the picturesque coastal town of New Quay, once the home to Dylan Thomas. Wander around the quaint streets visiting the appealing shops, cafes and eateries, or sit on the harbour wall with fish and chips or an ice cream, looking out for the frequent visiting bottlenose dolphins. Dolphin and wildlife watching, fishing and boat trips are all available in season.

    The area has a wealth of attractions to offer year-round, including several sandy beaches. Tresaith, Penbryn and Mwnt are to name a few, and charming towns are within easy reach including Aberaeron with its Georgian harbour, coloured houses and a peaceful walk that leads to the National Trust property of Llanerchaeron, a rare example of an 18th-century Welsh gentry estate. Visit Cardigan with its castle and the interesting town of Aberystwyth with its promenade. From here you can take the steam train in to the mountains to Devils Bridge. Just a few miles inland there are the falls at Cenarth, where you can watch the trout and salmon swim in the crystal clear waters, or visit the Coracle Museum.
