    “We were given a very warm welcome ...”
    We were given a very warm welcome by Mr and Mrs Thomas on arrival, in fact the whole family were lovely and made us feel very welcome, they couldn't do enough for us. The cottage was very well decorated and very cosy with everything we wanted a real home from home. The patio with a large seating area was great to sit watch the wildlife and the beautiful views and just chill. Overall we had a wonderful weeks holiday, and are already looking at going next year, and would recommend to anyone.

The property

Lampeter 5.5 miles.

A delightful cottage, on owner’s working farm, slightly elevated to provide beautiful panoramic views across the valley, close to Lampeter, Cardiganshire.

The cottage is a perfect base for couples or a small family looking to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside, yet close to bustling rural towns and beaches.

This pretty cottage has all ground floor accommodation, including two light and airy bedrooms with a family shower room.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with a comfortable sitting area and cosy woodburner, benefiting from the views through the French doors into a lovely dining area where you can soak up the views with a morning coffee, or perhaps a game of cards with a glass of something cold.

Outside, you can sit in the pretty walled courtyard, which again maximises the fabulous views across the valley.

There is also a lawned area to the side of the property, adjacent to the owners’ farm.

The cottage benefits from the beauty of the ever-changing sights stretching across the undulating countryside of Mid Wales, across to Llanllwni Mountain, with heathland reaching towards the popular Brechfa Forest, criss-crossed with footpaths and perfect for a day out cycling.

Alternatively, why not take a short drive to the beautiful beaches and coves of Cardigan Bay, renowned for its diverse wildlife, with the coastline peppered with pretty towns and harbour villages?

The area offers numerous outdoor activities, such as dolphin and wildlife spotting boat trips, the Wales Coast Path, fishing and canoeing, as well as being a short drive from the Preselli Hills and the Pembrokeshire National Park.

Slightly further afield, you can visit the Wildlife Trust Centre, where different environments merge into marshlands alongside the River Teifi, or the nearby stretch of Poppit Sands Beach.

There are numerous National Trust properties, with the idyllic and tranquil beach of Penbryn, the working farm at Llanerchaeron and the Dolaucothi Gold Mines all a short drive away.

An idyllic retreat with breathtaking views to the distant mountains, yet close to popular market towns.

It's also home to a museum, a Welsh quilt museum and has a wealth of unique tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, regular markets and a fine food festival. Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and rivers, the area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. The lovely market town of Llandovery and picturesque Aberaeron Harbour are both just short drives away and the nearby Dolaucothi Gold Mines are well worth a visit. The coastlines of Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire are also within a short drive offering spectacular sandy beaches, superb coastal walks and the opportunity to venture out on boat trips to spot some dolphins in their natural habitat.
