  • "We had a lovely, comfortable stay."

    Lots of little touches and good mix of trad/modern style, e.g. great woodburner, modern kitchen, sweet herb garden, excellent shower, etc.! Situated perfectly to explore the superb coastline - Ynyslas was spectacular - scenic Snowdonia, castles and shops of Aberystwyth. Would highly recommend.

  • "Superb, comfortable holiday cottage in beautiful little village."

    The only complaint was that the garden was completely overgrown which wasn't expected. It would have been lovely to be able to sit out in it and having taken two Westies with us, would have been great to let them run around in it. However, we didn't let it spoil a fantastic week but it was a shame it let the place down. Can easily be rectified with a little tlc. Would definately use the cottage again.

The property

Perched on the fringes of the Snowdonia National Park and within striking distance of the Cambrian mountains and coastline is Cysgod Y Coed, a characterful, end-of-terrace property set within the village of Tre'r Ddol.

Inside, the property has been immaculately transformed with a clever combination of character and contemporary, providing a welcoming base for romantics, families or friends to call home as they explore this part of Wales.

Step inside to find a sleek kitchen, where the chef of the group can look forward to making the most of the quality appliances, arranged in a contemporary assortment to cook up family-favourite dishes, which can be enjoyed within the spacious living/dining room.

In here, you can look forward to relishing in your loved one’s company at the dining table as you tuck into your meals, accompanied by a special tipple before kicking back on the sofa to tune into the TV, with the crackle of the woodburning stove setting the ambiance and the complementing exposed beams perfectly framing the room.

At the end of each action packed day, sleep is sure to come easy in one of the two double bedrooms, both offering a refreshing colour palette and good storage space.

During a balmy afternoon, look forward to spending time within the spacious garden, where table and chairs offer an alternative spot for dining and the large lawn is ideal for letting your canine companions roam.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings further with a leisurely stroll into the centre of Tre'r Ddol, where you will find a superb community-run shop, Cletwr, where you can pick up local produce or any last minute essentials, whilst the pub offers a good menu for the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, or you can find Ynyshir, a Michelin Star restaurant, just a 4 mile drive away.

Alternatively, venture to Machynlleth, where you will find a larger selection of shops and eateries, before stopping off at the RSPB Ynys-hir, the setting 3-years running of BBC’s Springwatch nature programme, with more bird watching opportunities found at Dyfi Osprey project, with the pretty Dyfi area designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Alternatively, head towards the coastline to discover the seaside resort of Borth to spend a summer’s day lazing on the shoreline to catch a glimpse of the exposed remains of a forest, which is estimated to be over 3,000 years old.

The property is very well situated for road and mountain bikers, with Nant yr Arian only a 25 minute drive away, and Coed y Brenin less than 1 hour away.

Travel slightly further along the coastline to Aberystwyth, which is home to a bustling town centre with lots of lovely independent shops and a colourful Victorian promenade, as well as being home to National Library of Wales and Kings College, the place where Prince Charles stayed when he was studying in Aberystwyth.

Other attractions within the surrounding area includes the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve, the Falconry Experience and the Nant-y-Moch Reservoir, providing great walks and fishing opportunities.

Cysgod Y Coed is a wonderful retreat to call home as you explore this wonderful part of Wales.

Within the area you can find all the essentials for any self-catered stay, including the community-run shop of Cletwr providing you with any last minute essentials as well as offering local produce, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free stock too. The shop also provides a delightful café, making a great stop off after a day of rambling in the Welsh countryside, with a rewarding home-made cake to accompany your coffee. The area also boasts a charming pub where you can indulge in an ale and enjoy a hearty meal ahead of your day's adventure. Nearby Machynlleth hosts an array of attractions, including its Museum of Modern Art, a wider selection of eateries and easy access into the beauty of Snowdonia National Park where you will experience scenery and wildlife like no other, the perfect way to try something different whilst experiencing Wales in all of its glory. Head to Aberystwyth for a day out at the coast, where you can roam the Royal Pier, build castles on the golden sands of South Beach and get lost in culture in the museum and art gallery within the town's centre; there's plenty to do at any time of year. With easy access to both the coast and countryside of Wales, Tre'r Ddol provides a wonderful area from which to explore all of its excitement.
