  • "Absolutely amazing!"

    It's exactly how it is seen on photos and description... Only better!! Stayed here for 3 nights for my birthday and honestly couldn't of asked for anything better! Perfect place to escape the hustle of everyday life, so peaceful and private!Cabin was so cozy and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in! There wasn't anything that hadn't been thought of to ensure the perfect stay and the air con was an absolute bonus! Hot tub was amazing, free to use as much we liked, owners came each morning (without disturbing us) and checked on chemical levels etc to ensure we got full use of it! On our first morning our hot water wasn't working (had been the night before) we phoned Byron and he came round straight away; they only live up the road! He had replaced the gas bottle that morning on his check up and sometimes it just needs a little encouragement, he sorted it right away for us and ensured we had everything we needed! Honestly couldnt of asked to of stayed in a better place or with better hosts! Would definitely recommend and hopefully we will be visiting again soon!

  • "We had a lovely stay!"

    Cabin is warm and cosy and the hot tub was great. The sign for the cottage was a little faded on the way in we took so we actually drove past the property at first and did a u turn! Maybe make both sign posts a little clearer. The town and beaches for Aberystwyth are a short drive maybe 15-20 minutes from the cabin so there is plenty of shops/activities nearby, overall was a great stay, would recommend and would also go back for another stay!

    Hot tub was amazing and accommodation was really cosy with all the facilities you need. It is a short drive from good locations such as aberystwyth town centre and devils bridge. Would highly recommend.

  • "Great place to stay for a couple of nights."

    Warm, cozy living area, in a quiet location. We arrived a lot later than we intended, and after looking through the information provided, we quickly found the cabin. Parking is quite tight for a bigger car but wouldn't be a problem in a hatchback. Lights guided us to the cabin and it looked exactly how it did on the images. Owner was very nice and helpful. Hot tub was lovely and warm!

  • "Great stay at this property!"

    Comfy bed, amazing hot tub, and the owners were very nice! They live half a mile down in the village, so not far away if you need them. They check the hot tub every morning between 7-8. Bottle of wine and some Welsh tea on arrival was very welcomed. The only thing I would say, which is very minor, is the door of the freezer in the little fridge wouldn't close properly, so items didn't stay frozen, but I'm sure this could be easily fixed, replaced. WiFi was great, Netflix also great. Beautiful back drop of steep hill and sheep. Would definitely stay here again, the hot tub really does make it!

The property

Llanilar 4.7 miles.

Caban Glas is a delightful holiday unit resting in the idyllic countryside village of Llanafan, Ceredigion.

Boasting a beautiful garden and wide open countryside views, the property makes for an ideal retreat for a romantic break away at any time of year.

Arriving at the dwelling, off-road parking for one car welcomes you, inviting you to make your way up the steps and into your temporary abode.

Enter into the studio-style layout to find a plush double bed where you can rest your head after an adventurous day.

Whip up a quick breakfast in the kitchenette using the handy two-ring hob, before sitting down at the breakfast bar to plan your day's excursions.

After a long day of discovering the local area, sink into the sofa and admire the countryside views across the private menage, before flicking on the TV to watch a film for the evening.

In the warmer evenings, take advantage of the outdoor space at the property, home to an enclosed garden with a lawn and patio, as well as furniture and a barbecue so you can take you full dining experience outdoors and into the fresh country air.

If you can tear yourself away from this pretty property, why not treat yourself to a traditional Welsh pub grub at one of the local pubs such as Y Ffarmers, which boasts a delicious menu using fresh and local produce.

Being surrounded in tranquil, rolling green fields ensures an abundance of walking and cycling opportunities within the immediate area, why not venture out to Bwlch y Geuffordd Gardens for a peaceful day of wandering the picture-perfect gardens?

Embrace Welsh history and make your way to the Frongoch Mine Ruins to marvel at the ruins of a once-prevalent industry for the area, or perhaps enjoy exploring the Lisburne Metal Mine Waterwheel, which is just a short drive from the abode.

Slightly further afield is the thriving coastal town of Aberystwyth, home to Aberystwyth Castle Grounds, 13th century ruins which still offer an amazing viewpoint across the sea.

Railway and train enthusiasts will also enjoy Aberystwyth for its Vale of Rheidol Railway and Aberystwyth Cliff Railway experiences, but if that is not your cup of tea, you can always spend an afternoon soaking up the summer sun at the beach with an ice cream and some fish and chips!

Whatever the weather, Caban Glas is a fantastic base for a memorable holiday to Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
