Enjoy a break in this traditional Welsh cottage with its own private hot tub, ideal after a day out exploring the stunning countryside of mid-Wales.

Once a humble thatch roof and clom (cob) walled cottage, traditional for this area of Ceredigion, Soar Cottage is anything but humble now. It has proved difficult to date the cottage exactly but this type of cottage was prevalent in the 16th century and will certainly date back to at least the mid 18th century. The cottages were typically built of local readily available materials, including walls built of compacted earth, straw and small stones called clom. The thatch consisted of heather and gorse, and earth clods covered with rushes and local straw. Soar Cottage followed the layout of a rural Welsh long house and consisted of a one room parlour with adjacent bedroom and dairy, and built on to this was a cow shed for milking cows for the house, and a calf pen and pig sty. During WWI many traditional crafts such as thatching were lost due to large loss of life, and it was only the use of zinc sheeting to cover the roof that saved these houses. The last known inhabitants brought up thirteen children in the cottage but it was abandoned in the early 1960s.
The new owner has been painstaking in the desire to ensure the cottage was restored to the highest standard, showcasing the talents of local craftsmen. The addition of a Welsh oak frame sun room and a new thatch roof completes this absolutely stunning cottage. As you enter Soar Cottage you will be instantly struck by the luxurious interior, and no expense has been spared in creating an aspirational holiday home. From sumptuous soft furnishings throughout, to the handmade kitchen with granite worktops, and the additional personal touches, you will find nothing lacking here. Outside across the cobble and stone patio, there’s a lovely hot tub and a raised lawned garden with amazing views across the fields to the sea and Cardigan Bay. When you can tear yourself away from the cottage, the wonderful Ceredigion coastline is only 7 miles away, as well as the delightful harbour town of Aberaeron with its colourful houses and great selection of pubs, café’s and reputable restaurants. Locally caught fish and seafood are always on the menu, and you can’t come here without sampling the famous honey ice cream too. There are delightful individual shops and the whole town has a great vibe; especially through the summer season when there are a variety of festivals and events to enjoy.
A bit further down the coast, the pretty town of New Quay clings to the rocks above the bay and from here you can catch a dolphin watching boat trip. The bottlenose dolphins can be seen almost daily from the harbour wall. A 45-minute drive will bring you to Aberystwyth; take a stroll along the promenade or ride the electric railway to the summit of Constitution Hill, or take the steam train to Devil’s Bridge and Waterfalls. Whatever you do or wherever you go, Ceredigion offers a warm welcome and a host of attractions and history. Befitting of a county that dates back over 1600 years, every town has a tale to tell and each village a mystery to discover. Crack open a bottle of champagne and relax, Soar Cottage is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life. Beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    Enjoyed the holiday and cottage. When in the cottage we spent most of our time in the conservatory or in the hot tub. I was surprised there was no large table in the garden that so we could have eaten outside. It was nice having two bathrooms in the morning.

    The best cottage we have ever stayed in. Beautiful decor and luxurious, comfortable furnishings. Warm welcome from Rosemary, the owner, made us feel at home straight away. We were sad to leave at the end of the week. Would not hesitate to recommend Soar Cottage to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday in a beautiful cottage.

    Wow, what a lovely cottage. Just as the photos, beautiful location, perfect if you want to relax and stay in one place for the week. A bit too remote for us though, you have to drive to get to the pub, local shop and generally explore the areas as the roads are narrow and winding so taking a walk from the cottage wasn't an option unfortunately. We were out and about most days visiting local towns, Aberaeron, New Quay, Cardigan and Aberystwyth, so using the hot tub was a perfect end to each day!

    Our best cottage getaway by far. Everything down to the smallest detail was emaculate. Mrs Pugh was a pleasure to deal with. The cottage had everything you might need during a time away, the location and atmosphere absolutely fantastic. The history behind the cottage and the album with photos of the construction was such a nice touch. Had the best time ever and definitely will be returning in the near future

    Absolutely gorgeous cottage that has been so thoughtfully restored. Rosemary, the owner, made us feel very welcome. We had no need to contact her after arrival but I have no doubt she would have been very responsive. She clearly has invested a lot of time and money into the property and it really pays off because our stay felt very special. We’ve stayed in a lot of UK properties and this was our absolute favourite with its attention to detail and top quality furnishings and kitchen equipment. It was fully equipped with a wonderful hot tub to top it off. It’s about a 15-20 minute drive to one of our favourite places, New Quay, a really lovely harbour and beach where you can see dolphins. Lots of lovely coastal walks between New Quay and Mwnt. The nearest decent sized shop that we found is a few miles away from the cottage but Tesco does home deliveries so order from home to arrive on your first evening. Would highly recommend this cottage and have nothing negative to say about it or the surrounding area. Plenty to do for a family.

    Absolutely stunning cottage in a very peaceful, picturesque location. Roads a little narrow and windy to get there but only a few miles to the nearest town. Every detail was of the absolute utmost quality in this beautiful cottage. Rosemary, the owner was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. The cottage had everything you could need and the hot tub was sublime. Even in the snow! Being able to then wander back in to a toasty warm cottage with every amenity you could need made for a perfect holiday.

    We have stayed at a lot of cottages over the last 15years but we both agreed this was the best one yet,incredibly high standard of finish and wonderfully equipped but remained cosy and homely and with the added bonus of the fabulous hot tub. Thank you Rosemary.
