  • "We had a wonderful week."

    All the little accessories such as tea bags, washing tablets and dishwasher tablets and more were very helpful and such a thoughtful gesture as we had forgotten dishwasher tablets. The cottage was clean and homely and spacious plus set in a beautiful quiet lane. This was our second visit snd we will definitely be back again! We visited many nearby places such as constitution hill and the steam railway taking us a lovely ride to devils bridge, we also visited the botanical gardens which gives you a free day return which was useful as we didn’t get to see everything the first time! We also visited mwnt beach which is a beautiful little cove with Sandy puddles for the children to play in. We had a lovely day in aberearon and a visit to Oakwood theme park. There was so many lovely places to visit. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay here."

    A very comfortable cottage, and a lot of thought has gone into furnishing and equipping it for guests. The kitchen is well equipped making it easy to cook large meals, and we really appreciated the hot powerful shower. The owners were friendly and helpful, and my husband enjoyed the opportunity to have a look at their model railway layout. Our only minor gripe was that the kitchen would benefit from more light in the evenings, as the area around the cooker is not directly lit.

  • "We were a family of 4 adults and 2 children ( 4 year old and a 10 month old) having a two week break at the end of October - beginning of November."

    The property was perfect for us and we loved it. The converted old stone mill was spacious: with three bedrooms and upstairs toilet; a large family farmhouse style well equipped kitchen; a cute inglenook for escaping to for a quiet moment; best of all was the well furnished, very spacious hall-like sitting room. Here, the room was divided into TV/fireplace area, the other end provided board-games, shelved books/DVD selection, playpen and giant doll-house and gorgeous rocking horse with more seating. The hosts really made a great effort in providing amusements for children as well as adults. This was particularly important for the time of the year of our visit with the very changeable weather conditions. Unfortunatly the outside areas - French doors to the table and chairs in the garden was not used due to weather - but I'm sure lovely in summer and springtime. The downstairs toilet/bathroom/shower/laundry area was well appointed and the laundry dryer and washing machine well used. Heating and water etc. worked well and there was plenty of firewood provided for fire-making in the evenings. Terry and Diane ( the hosts) were in residence next door and helpful and friendly for all queries and informative on the history of the buildings. If the opportunity arises for us in the future we would certainly hire Felin Iago again and would also recommend this Sykes Cottage.

  • "Felin Iago is an absolutely gorgeous property in a very lovely part of Wales."

    The house is spacious and comfortable and kitted out with everything we needed to make our stay with 7 people comfortable and pleasant. The owners are friendly and their love of the house (which they renovated themselves from an old watermill) is evident. The location is certainly remote, but not impractically so and it remains relatively easy to pop over to Aberystwyth to get anything you need. All in all I can't recommend Felin Iago enough, we had a great time and it was a great place.

  • "Fabulous cottage, competitively priced and so much space and comfort for a family of 5."

    Quiet location about 10mins from nearest A road which suits us and not too far (20-30mins) from the best beaches and Aberystwyth. Really good WIFI which isn't always the case in holiday homes and I'd put it up there with Blaenywawr for Sykes cottage WiFi performance, if that's important. Beds very comfy, very helpful hosts and friendly neighborhood. Nice sized TV for chilling out in the evening, you can't go wrong here!

    We were visiting as two families with 3 young kids and a toddler. So the stair gate (at the top only), the night lights, kids cutlery, play area equipped with heaps of toys, games and books were so welcomed and utilised! The hosts even added a Christmas tree in the mix and it really helped us to continue to embrace the festive season! The space was plenty big enough and catered for our two families really perfectly. The location is beautiful too with plenty of little and longer walks along streams and rivers and into woods and fields. Thank you so much to the very friendly and helpful hosts! Everything we wanted and more and we hope to stay again one day for sure!

    We all arrived separately and quite late so it was really dark in the village and we had a little trouble finding the cottage, but that all added to the fun! Terry the host greeted us and let us know that the cottage was ready for our arrival. The setting is breath-taking! Everything is catered for and I have never stayed in a cottage that provided so many extra' cleaning products, milk, bread, butter etc. We were blown away and had the opportunity to make some valuable memories. Would definitely book this again....fabulous Felin Lago.

    We chose it to be near the coast. The beautiful house exceeded expectations and was fully equipped including, a lovely touch, fresh milk, bread and butter. There was plenty more besides. There was much in the way of linen and towels. The house had lots of places to chill out, read, watch tv or play games. There were lots of games, dvd's and books for our use.

The property

Llanrhystud 4.5 miles.

Resting a short distance away from the coast of Mid Wales in the picturesque village of Llangwyryfon is this wonderfully converted water mill, Felin Iago.

This spacious accommodation boasts bags of character offering a unique base for a family or friends gathering with both coast and countryside to explore.

Upon entering the property, be welcomed into the country-style kitchen, complete with all the essentials required to cater for yourselves for the duration of your stay, boasting a dishwasher so you don’t have to worry about washing up after cooking up a storm!

You and your loved ones can gather together within the spacious sitting room hosting high ceilings, with characterful exposed beams framing the plush seating arrangement, where the adults of the group can curl up in front of the woodburning stove, whilst the children make the most of the play area to the rear of the space.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to catch your rest in between your Mid Wales adventure within one of the bedrooms, offering a real sense of home-from-home.

Choose between a family bedroom with a double bed and two singles, a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom, designed to offer a flexible sleeping arrangement.

Spend a moment or two within the garden, where you can roam the lawn areas before pouring yourself a refreshing drink as you catch the final glimpses of the sun.

If you can tear yourself away from this outstanding abode, head to the village of Llanrhystud where you will find a pub serving good food and a shop for picking up the essentials.

Alternatively, a short car journey will take you to the large town of Aberystwyth, where you will find a glorious beach and a number of attractions including the Castle Grounds, a golf club and the Vale of Rheidol Railway.

For those feeling active, head along the coastline where you will find a magnitude of walking and cycling opportunities amidst breath-taking scenery.

Felin Iago promises a wonderful escape to this part of Wales.

About the location


Aberaeron 7 miles; Aberystwyth 9 miles.

Llanrhystud is a charming village in Mid-Wales on the west coast, with three rivers, Carrog, Wyre and Wyre Fach, all meeting to flow into the sea through this quaint settlement. The area surrounding the Grade II listed church, St Rhystud's Church, is now a conservation area, with the village enjoying beautiful rural views as well as a shingle beach. Llanrhystud beach is great for swimming and general watersports, whilst holding views over the lovely Cardigan Bay. Pick up all you need from the local convenience store and garage, or head to the pub which serves classic dishes when you don't feel like cooking. An 18-hole golf course can be enjoyed on a pleasant day, while riding schools and a farm park are not far away and are great for entertaining the little ones. The Wales Coastal Path runs through the village and presents a fantastic way to experience the rugged coastline of Wales, enjoying pitstops at other coastal villages along the way, such as Aberaeron, a delightful Georgian fishing town which still retains its character and charm, head to the harbour and take a boat trip to see the glorious landscape from the coast and discover Cardigan Bay's marine life before sitting down in one of the several eateries.
