  • "We have stayed here twice now and have got to say we have loved this cottage both times."

    The cleanliness is top notch. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need and more. The bed is very Comfortable with a lovely thick duvet. The lounge has 2 comfy settees. It’s the little things that make the difference too, like the cleaning items that are left for you, the dishwasher tablets, the washing up liquid. Kitchen towel. There was milk in the fridge , tea coffee sugar and cakes left for us. A really lovely touch. It’s like home from home. I can’t recommend this cottage enough.

    Thank-you for your kind feedback. It is very much appreciated that you have noticed how hard we work in these difficult times. Take care. Property Owner

  • "Chestnut Cottage is a really lovely holiday home."

    The rooms are very spacious and beautifully furnished. Kitchen has plenty of utensils, crockery and cutlery. The garden looks out over a paddock and so nice to sit out on the garden furniture watching the horses grazing and admiring the many feathered friends that came visiting. Many places of interest within driving distance including Aberystwyth approx. 8 away. My partner and I met Lindsey who manages the cottages, such a nice friendly lady always on hand to answer any queries but never intrusive. My only criticism is that the lower half of the stable door leading into the garden is rather stiff to open and perhaps some form of lighting above the garden door would be nice for those of us who are smokers and wish to enjoy a ciggy before retiring for the night. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chestnut and what's more we were lucky with the weather, sunshine every day!

  • "Lovely, very well equipped cottage."

    There was a problem with the boiler which the owner tried to resolve and the shower wasn't in use but we were informed before our stay. Would go again if the problems were resolved.

  • "We had a really lovely stay at Chestnut cottage."

    Great location, property was homely and clean with all amenities. The homemade cake on arrival was delicious and coffee, tea and milk supplies appreciated. There was a fault with the boiler whilst there on our second night which affected heating and hot water but this was dealt with really quickly. Heaters were supplied that evening within minutes and plumbers called out for the following day. We were kept informed throughout the day on the situation and luckily it was all fixed by our return from a day out. The communication and service was excellent. We would happily stay again.

    Thank-you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future Sarah and Family Property Owner

The property

Llanilar 3.4 miles.

Perched within a country estate in Crosswood near Llanilar is this fantastic Grade II listed cottage, Chestnut Cottage.

Formerly a dairy, the owner has lovingly restored the building to offer spacious, well-equipped accommodation furnished with style and charm, making it a lovely base for a group or family of six seeking their next retreat to Wales.

Park-up on the driveway with space for three cars, before unloading your bags and stepping into your new home from home.

Look forward to whipping up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, featuring a dishwasher and washing machine, ready to enjoy at the breakfast area or the dining table for six.

If the weather is nice, why not fire up the barbecue and indulge in a spot of alfresco dining out in the shared garden?

After dinner, retire to the sitting room where you can relax in front of the TV with Freeview, challenge your loved ones to a game or listen to your favourite songs courtesy of the CD player, all within the warmth of the electric fire.

After a day of exploring, soothe your muscles with a relaxing soak in the bath or wash away the day with a hot shower as you prepare for bed.

When sleep calls, choose from three well-appointed bedrooms, two doubles, one of which can be found on the ground floor and a twin.

Outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed with an excellent selection of walking and cycling trails available right on your doorstep, including the 20-mile Ystwyth Trail and the wildlife rich Birch Grove Walk.

For your local amenities, take the short drive over to Llanilar, where you will find a well-stocked village shop and the welcoming Falcon Inn & Kitchen, perfect for those evening’s when you don’t feel like cooking!

Venture over to Aberystwyth, where you will be spoilt for choice for things to do!

Peruse a wealth of independent shops, dine at the wonderful selection of pubs, restaurants, and tea rooms, tour the Amgueddfa Ceredigion Museum and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, or hop aboard a vintage steam train at the Vale of Rheidol Railway to visit the popular Devil’s Bridge and enjoy the picturesque falls.

Don’t forget to pack your bathing suits, swim trunks, buckets, and spades ready to enjoy the glorious sands of the West Wales coastline, where you can bathe, try your hand at watersports or tuck-in to fresh fish and chips with the sand between your toes.

Continue onto Borth, where you can test out your swing at the Borth & Ynyslas Golf Club, explore Borth Station Museum or visit the animals within The Animalarium.

Adventure awaits with a stay at Chestnut Cottage.

About the location

The vibrant coastal town of Aberystwyth is just 6 miles away where you will find a superb museum, shops, pubs, tea rooms, a promenade and a 18 hole golf course.
