Families will enjoy this lovingly restored holiday property set in a peaceful rural location surrounded by stunning scenery.

These two beautiful, adjoining holiday properties have been lovingly restored from historic farm buildings. Eithinog meaning gorse, (ref OW5), has been converted from a cow and calf shed, and Helygen meaning willow, (ref OW4), converted from the adjoining stables, granary and hayloft. They lie in the peaceful, rural location at the edge of the Cambrians, amongst 350 acres of farmland and with wonderful views, and even a panoramic view of the coastline from the hillside. Just a mile away is Talybont village with local amenities, including well-known pubs and restaurant. At the nearby seaside resort of Aberystwyth, you can walk the promenade, take the cliff railway to the biggest Camera Obscura in the world, or catch the steam train to Devil’s Bridge and Waterfalls. Nature lovers will appreciate the abundance of walking available, from the stunning Ynyslas Nature Reserve and sand dunes to the Bwlch Nant Yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre. There is also a visitor centre where you can watch majestic red kites feeding over the nearby lake.

Cardigan Bay is home to bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals. A dolphin survey boat trip will give you the opportunity to learn from expert volunteers about the work that goes into maintaining this Special Area of Conservation.

The Dyfi Valley and Aberystwyth area is indeed a special place, in terms of the landscape, wildlife, the people and culture, and the area’s history and heritage. UNESCO gave the whole area Biosphere status in 2009, the purpose of which is to help in the process of protecting the environment that makes the area distinctive. The Cambrian Mountains offer an ideal destination for mountain bikers who enjoy a wild and rugged experience. There are biking trails, walking trails and a variety of other attractions in the area.

The owners of Eithinog and Helygen have created two extremely well-appointed and comfortable holiday homes and you are assured of a warm Welsh welcome. They have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH the Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. As well as this they have won an award from Aberystwyth University for ’The Best Aber Welcome’ in recognition of their fantastic hospitality. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    An amazing week: the cottage is spotless and facilities are perfect, especially the hot tub. The owner lives next door and nothing is too much trouble. Welcome pack of goodies was also very generous: definite 5 star accommodation.

    We spent a wonderful week in the cottage “Ethinog”. The location is beautiful with lovely views across the hills and so tranquil; the only sounds were the sheep and birds including a Buzzard overhead. The cottage is comfortable and very well appointed including a lovely hot tub that we spent several evenings in. Our dog came along with us and with the beach only about 15 minutes away, we enjoyed many walks. We thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    We absolutely loved Eithinog. We had such a warm welcome from Evan, who couldn’t do enough for us. It was such a relaxing peaceful and tranquil location, set in the countryside but close enough to Aberystwyth and Borth for days out. We loved it so much we are hoping to come back with our dog in the future.

    The cottage was lovely and we enjoyed our stay. Up until we got back and was asked to pay a bill of £150 for draining the hot tub. (Which we never) It was snowing all weekend, why on earth would we empty it. The guy seemed nice at the time but must be trying to get us to pay for a service on his hot tub. If you go, don’t use the hot tub. And if you do make sure you don’t empty it... (although you will probably be blamed if it anyway)

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are delighted that this guest had an enjoyable stay at Eithinog. Unfortunately, the hot tub was found empty upon the guest’s departure to which we suspected there may be a leak. An Engineer was called and after inspection, confirmed there was no leak / damage which could have caused the water to drain. The cost for the Engineer to visit the property and carry out the investigation was £150.
