The property

Llanrhystud 2 miles.

Tucked away amidst 65 acres of land, is this characterful stone-built cottage, Fynnon Hywel Farm, resting just a few miles away from the Welsh seaside village of Llanrhystud.

This superb property is without doubt something unique and is ideal for a family seeking to explore the rich heritage and unequalled countryside of this part of the Cardigan Bay.

Originally part of the Mabws Hall Estate, Ffynon Hywel is located close to the original lane leading to the hall itself, with plentiful walks for guests to enjoy the tranquillity of the local pastoral landscape and the woodlands with its rippling streams.

Upon entering the property, you will be struck by the space and the overwhelming character of this detached building, with the period features of the old beams and stonework complementing the carefully selected furnishings and quality features.

The dining area which is elevated by a stone fireplace and overhead ceiling beams, making a wonderful place to dine in the evening with your loved ones.

Wander into the adjacent sitting room, home to a woodburning stove, a Welsh stone feature and wonderful Inglenook fireplace with its historic Oak Lintel, ideal for watching TV surrounded by wonderful atmosphere of the building.

A well-equipped kitchen is a classic addition to the property and with enough room to cook for all the family, you will look forward to preparing meals from breakfast through to dinner.

Take the stairs, and a twin and two king-size double bedrooms are on the first floor, equally spacious and boasting a peaceful setup to get your rest.

A set of stairs to the other side will guide you up to a shower room and a separate cloakroom for a unique touch.

A ground floor super king-size bedroom completes the accommodation, featuring lovely views of the lawned garden.

When you are not relaxing inside, why not throw open the French doors which lead you out onto an enclosed courtyard, where you can look forward to dipping into the bubbling hot tub.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic base, venture into the market town of Aberystwyth, where you will find an array of shops, restaurants and cafés to explore to suit all ages and tastes.

Venture to the north end of the seafront, where you will see the Victorian Cliff Railway which will take you to the summit of Constitution Hill or why not visit the dog-friendly Llanrhystud beach, only three miles from Ffynnon Hywel, or enjoy the selection of over 60 miles of coastal path along the Ceredigion coastline.

This is a wonderful cottage in a unique location.
