  • "Had a lovely holiday at the farmhouse."

    Very clean, perfectly situated and great hosts. We've stayed in a few cottages in Wales and this is definitely one id recommend to anyone whether your adults alone or a family. The kids loved every minute and adults had time to relax and unwind. The views are absolutely amazing such a great location definitely due a return.

  • "The property was absolutely stunning and completely exceeded our expectations."

    The location is easy to get to and beautiful. The owners of the property as lovely and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished we had booked for a longer period. We will definitely be back for sure! The only small feedback we would give was we were surprised the remaining 2 rooms both had 2 single beds. Which was absolutely fine for it being just the 2 of us, but if we were to bring other family members, one of the other rooms having a double bed would have been much more appealing.

    This property is absolutely wonderful, everything you need is provided for. There is a river pool a few hundred meters from the end of the garden, where we swam daily, it is idyllic. Comfy beds, great showers and the hot tub was amazing. We visited local eateries recommended by the owners which did not disappoint. Aberystwyth was close by and we canoed on the sea and down the river. There is lots to do locally and the property is really outstanding. We will definitely return and continue our adventures.

  • "What a fantastic place to switch off and unwind!"

    Inside, the house is modern, clean and comfortable. Outside is beautiful, green and peaceful. The hot tub was great after long walks, of which there are plenty nearby. The beds are incredibly comfortable, it felt like sleeping on a cloud. The showers are nice and powerful. The kitchen was very well equipped. Our son loved the river which is accessible via some steps a short stroll from the house. He spent hours paddling, skimming stones and searching for insects. The owners were friendly and helpful and not at all intrusive. The place feels so rural and yet you are only a very short drive away from Aberystwyth where there are some good restaurants, supermarket etc. This was undoubtedly one of the best properties we have stayed at and we certainly hope to be back!

    The area is one of outstanding beauty with lots of places to visit, all within a short distance. Watching the red kites feeding just down the road at Nant yr Arian was amazing. The house itself is very well equipped, and we coped easily with the diminished supply of crockery etc due to Covid 19. The hosts could not be more helpful, not intrusive but available if needed. I look forward to another holiday in this beautiful house.

Nothing but complete praise for the lovely owners who made us feel extremely welcome and have created a lovely place to completely chill and relax. Had a couple of meals at the Halfway Inn, beautiful homemade food well worth the 'uphill' journey. Thank you again to Mr and Mrs E for being lovely hosts, we will be back

  • "The property was nice and clean, several things had been removed inline with Covid guidelines including the loose sofa cushions which made it quite uncomfortable."

    Also no hair dryer. We were a little disappointed at how difficult it was to access the beautiful river in front of the property. I was also a little surprised that the neighboring property was occupied by the owner with noisy dogs and and early morning noisy activity and not the additional holiday let as we had understood. We had to delay the start of our holiday due to track and trace and were advised by Sykes that we would receive a partial refunded or full if we chose to cancel. Very disappointed that neither the property owner, Sykes or Sykes holiday insurance were able to sort this even after their advice to the contrary.

    .....built only 3 years ago and has a lovely feel both inside and out. Superb position in the Rheidol valley.....lovely views all around and the river running by at the bottom of the garden!! Internally the house is beautifully appointed and has everything you could wish for.....including a lovely large social living space which is great for a family or friends break. Hot tub with covered pergola and disco lights!! 5 mins drive into Aberystwyth to get provisions. 10 mins to the coast. 10 mins to the mountains. What's not to like?! And to top it all you will have the most caring and attentive hosts Elaine and Owen - you can feel their care and attention which has been put into this 'home away from home'. Highly recommended.

This area of wales is in our opinion the best area of wales, lots to do, don’t miss the dolphin boat, we saw the dolphins, the red kite feeding is also a must. Devils bridge if you can manage the 675 steps. The coast road down to Cardigan is a must too stopping off at all the stunning seaside towns new quay and arbeararon was our favourites, but try them all don’t miss Mwnt beach. The whole area is beautiful. If you want a relaxing holiday with lovely accommodation, stunning views and nice places to eat try here you won’t be disappointed.

Pengeulan Cottages

Capel Bangor 2.3 miles. A pair of luxurious, detached cottages on the bank of the River Rheidol, close to the village of Capel Bangor and a short drive from the popular University and Victorian seaside town of Aberystwyth. These cottages are both beautifully designed in a modern style and are a perfect retreat for families or friends looking to relax in a stylish and spacious cottage, enjoy the riverside with fishing rights and stunning local countryside, yet being close to a busy town and sandy beaches. Both properties have been lovingly and stylishly re-built to provide comfortable, luxurious and modern accommodation.

The River Rheidol runs through the valley, which opens up fabulous river walking and a popular cycling route to the series of lakes and dams, which are popular for fishing. You are ideally placed to explore the beautiful Cambrian Mountain countryside with Nant yr Arian, its fabulous circular walks and the daily feeding spectacle of the majestic Red Kites around the lake. Nearby, is the Silver Mountain Experience, a mix of original heritage buildings and mystical adventures. Rheidol Butterfly House, a perfect summer trip is also within easy reach. There are a fabulous selection of activities in the area, with fishing in the valley, local cycle paths and great walking opportunities, a local golf course and horse riding.
