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 burner 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 drover’s 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.

A gorgeous cottage. We had everything we needed. Well equipped. Great response from owner. Beautiful location. A bit too far from everything. But ideal if you want a quiet retreat. 5 stars ⭐️
