The property

This charming detached holiday cottage is situated up on the hill in the village of St Dogmaels, overlooking the Teifi Estuary, close to the wonderful Poppit Sands beach and one mile from the market town of Cardigan. The owners' of this St Dogmaels cottage have retained many character features, such as exposed beams, and have added some of their own touches to make this holiday home an ideal cosy base for families all year round. Set over three floors, this cottage in St Dogmaels offers three spacious bedrooms. From the second floor attic room, double doors open out onto a bridge balcony, which leads to the elevated rear garden, boasting fabulous views of the village, estuary and beyond. This St Dogmaels cottage has a contemporary feel with a bathroom, a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area, where on cooler evenings you can snuggle up on the comfy sofas in front of the woodburner. The enclosed lawned front garden and patio is a sun trap on bright days, and the steep, tiered, rear lawned garden boasts lovely, far-reaching views, from where you can enjoy a good book, or a spot of alfresco dining. A short stroll down the hill takes you to the centre of St Dogmaels where you can explore the mill and abbey, learn more about breadmaking, stroll along the river, take a cycle ride along the old railway line to the Welsh Wildlife Centre, or simply enjoy a quiet lunch or afternoon tea. From lazy sunbathing summer days to invigorating winter walks, the nearby Poppit Sands are an absolute joy, plus you may also wish to venture out to the sea to spot dolphins, try coasteering, or paddle up the river through the Tiefi Gorge in an open top canoe. Return to this welcoming St Dogmaels cottage after a great day out to relax and organise the next adventures on your Welsh getaway.

About the location


Cardigan 1 mile.

St Dogmaels is an ancient and tranquil village nestling peacefully around its ruined abbey at the mouth of the River Teifi on the totally unspoiled west Wales coast. One of its attractions is Y Felin, one of only two working watermills in Wales and retains the machinery installed in 1820. It is thought the mill was originally built by the monks of St Dogmaels' 12th century abbey. The miller shows how the mill works and bread, flour and cakes can be purchased from the mill or you can enjoy tea and cakes and light lunches in the Coach House Café nearby. The village has four pubs, a fish & chip shop, a Post Office, a cafe and a small museum at the abbey. There is also a pretty green and a millpond with ducks. Nearby is the wonderful Poppit Sands where you can relax on sunny days or enjoy invigorating walks in the cooler months, as well as exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. At Dogmaels is the start or finish of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path from St Dogmaels to Amroth. Visit Castell Henllys, the Iron Age Fort where everyone is encouraged to learn the ancient way of living, or visit the wonderful Shire Horse Farm to see how farming was before tractors. The Cardigan Bay dolphins can be seen off the bay on a regular basis and more active pursuits can be found at Cardigan Bay Active, including surfing, wildlife trips or coasteering. With scenic coastal, riverside and countryside walks and an array of other beaches and attractions all close by, this is a perfect holiday location all year round.
