  • “gorgeous, quiet, restful”
    This house is set amongst hills in a beautiful, isolated spot, with a brook running past the door. All you can hear is birdsong and water. Lots of lovely walks, and paradise for dogs. The house is 250 years old and is gorgeous inside. Bedrooms cosy, bathrooms great, downstairs homely and comfy, with log burners and 3 ft thick walls ! The owners, Jim and Ann, have made a lovely job of it. We were greeted on arrival by flowers, wine, scones and cake (Bara brith ?), This made our arrival extra ...

We were greeted on arrival by flowers, wine, scones and cake (Bara brith ?), This made our arrival extra special.There are lots of lovely beaches not far away, and Devils Bridge is a spectacular spot to visit. Sarah, who looks after the house, was very helpful with directions and information, of which there is lots in the house. We will be going there again, but maybe a little earlier in the summer, as the weather wasnt the best !

The property

Llanilar 6 miles.

A stunning example of a Grade II listed Welsh farmhouseset in a secluded location with mature gardens on different levels, up a private lane surrounded by a working farm.

It sits nestled on the side of the valley, next to a bubbling stream, six miles from the village of Llanilar and ten miles from the larger town of Aberystwyth.

The property’s comfy furnishings and mixture of traditional and modern styling featuring original oak beams and an inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove make this farmhouse perfect for families and friends escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life, to enjoy the tranquillity of country living.

It is set over two floors, with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and four comfortable bedrooms, including a master room with pretty views and an en-suite bathroom.

The large kitchen is well equipped and has a dining area and comfy seating beside a woodburning stove, set within a traditional inglenook fireplace.

The separate sitting room also has a woodburning stove and makes a wonderful place to relax in after a walk through the surrounding hillside woods, or to catch up on some reading.

There is even a private external games room where you can challenge each other to a game of darts or table football.

With its rural surroundings, a step outside this lovely holiday home is a step into the countryside.

There are two seating areas which can be used to enjoy the garden from all angles, either from the patio directly outside the property, or across a bridge made from a tree, up a winding path and to a swinging seat and outdoor games area overlooking a babbling brook.

There is a brick built barbecue area with a large dining table for the whole group to enjoy their alfresco meal.

Star gazing at night is a must as the light pollution in the area is non-existant.

This property is a haven for walkers as woodland walks abound and the surrounding fields are accessible for guests, perfect for taking the dogs for a stroll, or for the more adventurous there is a downhill BMX track.

There is a cycle path within walking distance and the River Ystwyth is great for swimming.

The popular village of Llanilar is an easy drive away and has a local pub and a village shop while a little further afield, the seaside town of Aberystwyth is situated on the Wales Coast Path, with a lovely sand and shingle beach.

Take a trip up Constitution Hill via the funicular railway, or take a steam train to Devil’s Bridge and enjoy the stunning and mystical scenery.

Llanilar is ideal as a base for exploring the beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay or, take a step back inland and head towards the mountains and the Snowdonia National Park.

Stop at the view point at Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian and marvel at the stunning red kites that soar above.

A spacious, comfortable family farmhouse, perfect for a secluded getaway as its tranquil surroundings make for a relaxing break or as a base for the more adventurous.
