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.

    Penroc is a most delightful, cosy 400 year old Welsh stone cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside with magnificent views over the Cambrian Mountains.  It has been sympathetically refurbished by an interior designer to encompass the charm and character with modern comforts including furnishings to a very high standard.  The accommodation on the ground floor is a beautiful large open plan room having slate floors with scatter rugs and original beamed ceilings; there is a well-equipped kitchen/dining area, a cosy living area around an attractive gas burning stove and a spacious garden room with seating area and window seats in the bay picture windows – all of which have the added luxury of under-floor heating. The owners have thoughtfully provided plenty of DVDs to enjoy along with a good selection of books, puzzles and games for those relaxing evenings round the fire, or reading a good book in the window bay with Red Kites circling overhead – this will soon recharge your batteries!   As a mobile signal isn’t good in the cottage, a landline telephone is there in case of emergencies.  There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one with a King size double bed with ‘Vi-Spring’ mattress which enjoys a very special feature of a large balcony for relaxing with a lazy breakfast or enjoying a meal surrounded by glorious views of the Ystwyth valley.  The second bedroom has twin beds and the beamed bathroom gives the usual comforts with heated towel rail and shaver point.  If you should require more bedrooms and a second bathroom, there is a connecting sound-proofed door to the adjoining cottage, as Penroc can either be booked independently or together with Ty Mari, where you can enjoy two double bedrooms and three twin bedrooms giving plenty of space for ten people, which would accommodate the gathering of family and friends.  Both cottages have adjacent gardens with glorious views. There is plenty of space to park cars, barbecue or just sit and take in the scenery. Unfortunately Penroc is not suitable for the disabled due to the accessibility. 

    Penroc can be booked together with Ty Mari (CC624010) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Ground Floor: The property has night store heaters throughout with under-floor heating to ground floor and comprises:
    Lounge: with TV with HD Sky Box Freesat, DVD and Radio/CD, with Gas Burning Stove in Inglenook Fireplace; a characterful, cosy and well presented open plan room

    Kitchen / Dining: with electric oven and ceramic electric hob, microwave, fridge, large freezer in under stairs cupboard, dining furniture, open plan room extends out to Garden Room with full length window seat, lounge chairs and coffee table.  French Doors leading out into the garden.

    First Floor: Bedroom 1: with king-size bed with Vi Sprung Mattress

    Bedroom 2: with two single beds.

    Bathroom: with bath, WC and wash basin, heated towel rail and shaver point

    All fuel and power included. Bed linen and towels supplied.  Wi-Fi internet access.

    Ty Mari and Penroc are set in a stunning landscape and situated 100 meters along a rough track from the main road. There is a terrace of homes either side of the track, with Ty Mari at the end and Penroc at right angles on the headland. The garden area is limited and is shared between the cottages but there is space for cars, sunbathing and a barbeque! Penroc in particular, has glorious views.

    Ref: OZ7

    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. Shop 150 yards, pub/restaurant 200 yards.

    Open-plan living/dining room with multi-fuel stove, French doors, exposed stone work, tiled floor and well-equipped kitchen area with tiled floor.

The village of Cross Inn itself has a variety of amenities; two shops and a post office. A bus stop is located nearby the property, if you prefer not to drive yourself. Why not visit the New Quay Honey Farm, located just outside the village - it has a unique exhibition about the life of the honeybee, as well as a shop and tearoom. The farm’s hives are located all over the beautiful county of Ceredigion and produce some of the finest honey available. For keen walkers, New Quay is accessible by foot - it has all the charm of a traditional fishing village. The harbour wall curves into the sea, forming a safe haven for the small fleet of fishing boats, while also ensuring safe bathing on the sandy beach. The village is an artist’s paradise and many of their paintings can be bought from the local shops as a permanent reminder of your holiday here.  Cilmeri really is the perfect place to start your unforgettable holiday.

    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!

A warm Welsh welcome is assured by the owners, or ‘Croeso Cynnes’ as the locals say.
    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. The wonderful Cors Caron Nature Reserve, set between Tregaron and Pontrhydfendigaid covers over 2,000 acres and comprises three raised bogs built up from deep layers of peat that have taken around 12,000 years to form. It is a wild landscape made accessible by a network of boardwalks that enable visitors to get right into the heart of varied habitats, with over 170 species of birds having been recorded. Within walking distance are the remote lakes of Teifi Pools - Llyn Egnant, Llyn Hir and Llyn Teifi surrounded by open moorland; the lakes are renowned for their quality brown trout, and angling permits are available locally.

For walkers, the 21-mile Ystwyth Trail follows some parts of the old Great Western Railway line, connecting Aberystwyth with Tregaron, and Lampeter with Devils Bridge. Within an easy drive is the Ceredigion Heritage coastline with its coastal path and golden beaches, or enjoy dolphin watching, boat trips and visiting colourful seaside towns and villages such as Aberaeron, New Quay and Aberystwyth.

    Canary House is a stone-built house dating back to the late 19th century and was once part of an old department store in the small Teifi Valley town of Llandysul. Today Canary House has been well arranged to provide two bedrooms, a living room with an original oak beam and a lovely large dining room/conservatory which overlooks the courtyard.

    The town of Llandysul is ideally situated and at the centre of so many places to visit in west Wales. The town, more like a large village, is steeped in history and here you can find a small selection of shops, cafés and pubs, as well as a delightful walk leading from the 13th century church through the park running alongside the River Teifi. The renowned Llandysul Paddlers outdoor pursuit centre in the town, offers a variety of activities and is a centre for excellence for Canoe Wales. You can fish on the River Teifi and licences are available from the local hotel. There’s a weekly WI country market selling local produce and home baked goods and there’s a leisure centre with an indoor swimming pool. Further afield, are the interesting market towns of Newcastle Emlyn and Cardigan, and the larger towns of Carmarthen and Lampeter are all within easy reach.

    A drive of about 20 minutes will bring you to Cardigan Bay, one of the most spectacular coastlines in Britain. Many beaches are dog friendly year round, ideal if you are bringing your family pet on holiday. Visit delightful New Quay; 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, have an ice cream and watch the boats bobbing about.

    A little further up the coast, the rows of colourful painted Georgian houses in Aberaeron cluster around the stone harbour which is the focal point of the town. Here you will find an array of stylish independent shops and a huge selection of places to eat and drink, from pubs and cafés to high class bistros and restaurants and, of course, fish and chips and the famous honey ice cream. Aberaeron hosts a series of events during the season, including the Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs, the Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival, and Mackerel Festival.

    With award winning beaches and iconic harbours, delightful towns and villages framed by the Cambrian Mountains, Ceredigion is a wonderful place to visit, so why not make Canary House your choice for your holiday, be it a short break or a longer stay?
