    Beautifully located amidst unspoilt countryside with lovely valley views, and just a couple of miles inland from Cardigan Bay, the three cottages at Penrallt Y Cordde offer the perfect location to enjoy the Marine Heritage coastline. There are several award-winning beaches nearby, remote sandy coves and small fishing villages nestling amidst the stunning scenery. Tresaith, Penbryn, Cei Bach, Llangrannog and Mwnt are just a few worthy of a visit and several beaches are dog friendly all year round.

    The three cottages sit within the resident owners’ 15 acres of land, where they have their own farmhouse and pastures, meadows, woodlands, ponds and stream. 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.

    Y Cartws (ref OW8 and meaning ‘cart’), and Yr Ysgubor (ref OX1 and meaning ‘barn’), have been created from an old stone barn and now offer contemporary accommodation in a sympathetic conversion, also with beams, vaulted ceilings and exposed stonework.

    The Ceredigion Coastal Path takes in spectacular cliff top views and ‘Cardi Bach’ buses connect with various points along the route. Designated a Special Area of Conservation, Cardigan Bay is home to bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises, grey seals and a variety of sea birds. You can take a dolphin spotting boat trip from New Quay harbour, or just enjoy fish and chips and watch them from the harbour wall. It’s no wonder that writer Dylan Thomas was inspired to settle here for some of his life.

    There are plenty of attractive towns and villages to discover nearby, including Cardigan and its castle, the colourful harbour town of Aberaeron with elegant painted Georgian buildings, impressive Cilgerran, and bustling Newcastle Emlyn. Cosy pubs, chic shops, antique centres and good restaurants in the area, and for the more sporty, there are plenty of outdoor activities available including cycle routes, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and a canoe centre at Llandysul.

    Just a few miles further inland the scenic Teifi Valley offers excellent opportunities for fishing as well as attractions such as the Teifi Valley Railway, the National Wool Museum, the National Coracle Centre and falls at Cenarth.

From the conservatory you can relax with a coffee and enjoy the lovely view and you may see many of the frequent visitors including ducks, pheasants, grey wagtails, marsh tits and majestic red kites overhead. You can also see dippers on the river, where, if fishing is your hobby, the owners have two rod licences to fish on their own stretch.

    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!

    Maes Glas is a comfortable, two-bedroom, semi-detached holiday cottage located on a private estate comprising similar properties in the rural village of Ciliau Aeron, and less than five miles from the picturesque and colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron. This light and airy cottage, all on one level, has an open-plan living space with a dining conservatory and delightful open views, as well as a decked terrace with a barbecue and space for al fresco dining. Just a short stroll across the grounds of the estate will bring you to a neighbouring hotel with a bar and restaurant and a takeaway service in season.
    Aberaeron has an illustrious history; it was once a major trading port in west Wales and many of the colourfully painted houses were once owned by sea captains. Today the town is referred to as the ‘jewel of Cardigan Bay’, priding itself in lively festivals, exhibitions, events and sporting tournaments. There is varied shopping and a wealth of cafés, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. Plenty of wonderful cycle routes and walks are available, both coastal and inland, including nearby Tyglyn Woodland Walk and the peaceful route that leads to the National Trust property of Llanerchaeron, a rare example of an 18th-century Welsh gentry estate. After a day exploring the wonderful sights the area has to offer, what better way to relax and chill out than by sitting at the appealing harbour, watching the spectacular sunset over Cardigan Bay and enjoying some local Welsh honey ice cream? With the Heritage coast of Ceredigion available to you, this area is the perfect base for discovering all that beautiful and dramatic west Wales has to offer. There are so many places to visit including quaint New Quay, famous for its harbour, bottlenose dolphins and boat trips, and once the home of poet and author Dylan Thomas; the pretty seaside village Llangrannog, and the larger university town and resort of Aberystwyth with its cliff railway, pier and long promenade. Within easy driving distance there are also the attractions of The Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway, Devil’s Bridge, the market town of Lampeter and Dolaucothi Gold Mines.
