    “Kitchen equipment needs to be reviewed as some of the essential items are not fit for purpose.”

    General cleanliness, on my stay, was well below acceptable standard on arrival so I spent some time each day of the week cleaning to ensure the standard was good on day of departure. Owner, Tristan, was very helpful and did contribute to my wife, myself and our 3 dogs having a nice relaxing break.

The property

Aberaeron 6.5 miles.

A former Welsh longhouse, this lovely semi-detached cottage is situated adjacent to the owner’s property, on a smallholding, down a country lane, on the outskirts of the village of Cilcennin in Ceredigion, Wales.

This comfy cottage is ideal for families and couples looking to enjoy the local rural countryside, or perhaps just sit and relax in the sunny garden, plus dogs are very welcome to stay at this delightful holiday home.

The accommodation at this cottage comprises a bright kitchen, leading into a spacious sitting room with woodburner, and a dining area where you can relax whilst planning the days ahead.

This lovely room opens out into a spacious conservatory with comfy seating, ideal to enjoy reading a book whilst having an early morning cup of tea.

The conservatory opens directly into the fully enclosed garden, with lovely views across the owner's meadows.

The garden is perfect for the dogs to run off any remaining energy after a day exploring the local area.

As well as being able to enjoy a myriad of local walks from the door, the whole area offers a wide variety of outdoor activities including dolphin and wildlife spotting boat trips.

Alternatively, take a trip to Cors Caron which has established peat bogs, is rich in wildlife and accessed via raised boardwalks.

There are great opportunities for fishing, horse riding and golf locally, and the cottage is only five miles from the nearest beach and the Wales Coast Path, with the chance to explore some amazing bays and scenery.

There is a vineyard four miles away and the Regency harbour town of Aberaeron, with its multi-coloured houses, is also a few miles away and a lovely place to spend a day.

Take a look in the boutique style shops or sit on the harbourside and spend the afternoon crabbing off the harbour wall.

You are perfectly based to explore the sweeping coastline of Cardigan Bay with Penbryn, nearly a mile long, or Llangrannog which is a thriving seaside village with imposing rock formations.

Slightly further afield, why not try panning for gold at the National Trust’s Dolaucothi Gold Mines, or travel a little further and explore the countryside and abundant wildlife.

You can see daily red kite feeding at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian forest and recreation centre!

This comfortable cottage is an ideal base from which to explore this lovely part of the country.

About the location


Lampeter 13 miles; Aberystwyth 16 miles.

A pretty Georgian coastal town located between Cardigan and Aberystwyth with a lovely pebble beach and beautiful sea views. There is an abundance of shops with unusual gifts, great eating places and pubs, and a quiet little harbour to enjoy watching the boats come and go. Aberaeron is perfectly positioned to enjoy boat trips and watersports, or coastal and countryside walks and cycle rides. Short drives to Cardigan to the south, or Aberystwyth to the north offer more shops, craft centres, museums and cinema or theatre visits. A wonderful Mid Wales location all year round.
