Great weather for October too! Beautiful surroundings, I stood outside every morning with my coffee watching the sun rise over the hills. The horses came to say good morning they are very friendly. Lots of birds outside the front, Red Kites flying over the fields. Was so peaceful and relaxing. Clean and tidy throughout. Helen was lovely and helpful. Perfect break away from work and school and busy London. Reviewed by Angela5.0★Oct 2023 "Our family of 5 enjoyed a week's stay at the bungalow." The property was clean and in good condition. We appreciated the tranquillity of the location, and the helpfulness of the owner. The wifi worked well, which was appreciated. It may be helpful for future guests to know that we were able to receive a grocery delivery at the property from Tesco with no problem and with the prior agreement of the owner. Also, the local shop / post office closed at the end of August 2023. However, we were able to get by with topping up any extra supplies from the Sainsbury's store in Lampeter, where there's also a Co-Op store. Regarding finding the property, I'd advise drivers to follow the owner's travel directions as you approach the area, rather than relying on a different route suggested by a satnav. Reviewed by Martin5.0★Aug 2023 "We were very comfortable at this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay." The house is set on a large (to us!) farm and the owner was kind enough to allow us to wander as we pleased. The house is set in a very nice and private location with pleasant, mature garden areas to front and rear. There was so much for us to explore right on our doorstep that we didn't find the need to go out much! The owner was very helpful and kind and we enjoyed learning from her about the farm's history and the flora and fauna to be found there.

Reviewed by Anthony5.0★Oct 2021 "This place is a little gem if you wish to get away from it all." It is on a sheep farm in the middle of nowhere so if you are looking for a place close to amenities this may not be the place for you as you do need to travel to places. The cottage itself is so well equipped and Helen goes out of her way to make sure on arrival you have everything you need. So far as to providing milk tea coffee and biscuits on arrival. Even washing up liquid cloths and brush. Hairdryer an iron. There is a little shop which we enjoyed walking to with the dog - round trip takes about 30 - 40 minutes depending how fast you walk and provides essentials ( no newspapers though). Lampeter is good for the Co-op you can get everything you need here.(Takes about 15 minutes to drive there). O My Cod is a really good chip shop and the Nags Head pub is dog friendly. Small menu choice but excellent quality, reasonable priced and there is something on there to suit everyone. A walk after tea to the river is nice to do (wellies adived) good views of the Red Kites flying overhead. And there are a couple of nature reserves nearby, one within walking distance from the cottage. Cors Caron National Nature Reserve near Tregaron is dog friendly. It is a place I would definitely visit again. Reviewed by Lesley5.0★Aug 2021 "This is the 3rd time that we have stayed at Helen's,and we always have a lovely time."

Shower hit and miss with water pressure, we had no water at all for two days due to a burst water main but Helen did everything she could to help, keeping us informed and bringing us bottled water.

There were several great walks right from the door so it is perfect if you just want to walk and relax. Lampeter is only 4.5 miles away and has great pubs and takeaways . There is also a Sainsburys for supplies. We walked there through a forest walk , had a lovely lunch and walked back. The family are really welcoming and at hand if you needed anything but respected our privacy. The coast is about 35-40 mins drive so accessible for days out. The cottage had all the things we needed and the kitchen was well equipped. The garden was particularly beautiful and had a brilliant outside space to eat as the weather was good.

Kind Regards, The Property Owner Property Owner Reviewed by A4.1★Sep 2019 "A very comfortable and homely cottage/bungalow and we very much enjoyed our stay in beautiful countryside." Very accommodating and friendly owners Helen and David, and a lovely garden surrounding the property all fenced off (great if you have a pet with you) with easy parking in front of the cottage off the farm track. Large kitchen, well equipped. The bathroom is good as it has a walk in shower as well as a bath option, ideal for various peoples' needs. Comfortable lounge plus sunny conservatory. Cannot fault it in any way. We will definitely recommend it to others for a relaxing get-away but easy to get to various parts of the coastline which are also worth a visit if you haven't been in this area before. Do pay a visit to Cardigan, and take the Gwbert road off the main street which runs alongside the Teify river right to the end of that road where you will see the entrance to the Cliff Hotel in front of you - it's on the headland - magic.
