  • "A lovely place for quiet break."

    The cottage was clean and well-equipped with a lovely (though steep in places) garden. Great views in the daytime, fantastic starry skies at night.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. So pleased you enjoyed it despite the awful weather. Yes the garden is steep in places but ideal for the wonderful views from the summerhouse. A perfect place to idle the evenings away. Property Owner

  • "Lovely comfortable, warm cottage in an isolated spot with spectacular views."

    Very well equipped, even games in the summerhouse. Really appreciated the log burner being lit before we arrived and the electric blankets on the bed. Even dog treats thoughtfully left for the dogs. Short stay but perfect for what we wanted.

  • "Really welcoming hosts."

    Fantastic location. It’s as if time stops while you sit in the summer house, looking out at the cows and sheep in the distance. The best night sky I’ve ever seen. A place to completely relax. Will be going again

  • "We stayed at the cottage for a week from the 24th of July, no issues with the cleanliness of the cottage as a previous reviewer has mentioned."

    The TV did not work in the lounge on arrival but we called the owners, who then bought a replacement the next day. Could no ask for more really. The garden is lovely and ideal for dogs, very secure even for smaller dogs like ours being border terriers!! The area is beautiful, lots of walks within a few miles. The Hafod estate has lovely walks for all, some more challenging than others. Aberaeron good for some fish and chips!

  • "Well-equipped cottage set in a beautiful landscape with all you could possibly need."

    Lovely walks around quiet lanes right from the front door and Devil's Bridge only 2.5 miles away. Secluded but an easy 20-minute drive to Aberystwyth so not too remote. We loved it so much that we'll certainly book again, either later this year if possible or early 2021. Owners are friendly and helpful. All in all, one of the best holidays we've had.

  • "Lovely cottage with most beautiful views across to Plynlimon and nice walks round the lanes locally."

    Garden was great and very safely fenced. Blessed with perfect weather too! Enjoyed the Rheidol railway which was conveniently near at Devil's Bridge and visited Aberystwyth to go on the cliff railway and walk around up on the cliffs. Walked at the Hafod estate on a hot day with bluebells everywhere and went to the beach at Borth and to Strata Florida abbey.

  • "The cottage was everything we hoped for."

    We have quite a big dog and it was more then comfortable for the 3 of us. The garden was gorgeous, plenty of space for Jax to run around. Only issue we had was as pets wernt allowed upstairs (rightly so) as it was carpeted we had to use the dining chairs as a make shift barrier on the stairs but that became second nature to do anyway. The bedrooms were amazing, we used the ensuite room, huge comfy bed and the shower was brilliant. Really can't fault this cottage, we even had dog biscuits, a loaf of bread and the fire was made up on our arrival. The communication before we arrived was brilliant aswell, very helpful. We hope to go back again soon.

About the location


Aberystwyth 12 miles.

Nestling between the Cambrian Mountains and the Cardigan Bay coastline, Devil's Bridge has been a tourist attraction for centuries and was celebrated by author George Borrow who wrote Wild Wales in 1854. This famous bridge spans the Mynach, a tributary of the River Rheidol and is unique as it is actually three bridges in one, the original built around 1100, the second above this in 1753 and the third in 1903. The bridge is at a point where the River Mynach drops 90 metres (300 ft) in 5 steps down a steep and narrow ravine before it meets the River Rheidol. The set of stone steps leading down to the lowest bridge at the waterfall are known as Jacob's Ladder. The attraction offers viewing points and after the steep walk there is a hotel and cafe for refreshments. Devil's Bridge is served by the Devil's Bridge railway station on the historic narrow-gauge Vale of Rheidol Railway, which opened between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in 1902 and provides wonderful scenery along the ride to the coast. This whole area boasts stunning scenery and wildlife and is renowned for walking, cycling, fishing and bird watching as well as trips to the beautiful Cardigan Bay coastline with its wild cliffs and sandy beaches.

Bookings must be a minimum of 48 hours before the start date of the Holiday.
