  • "It is about 4 years since we were last at Trawsnant."

    Philippa and Mark as always could not have been more helpful. On this occasion, we stayed in the older of the two cottages. Unfortunately the weather was not very kind and we could not use the hot tub as the roof above it was leaking. We used the two single beds on the ground floor because at 84 years of age I did not feel safe climbing the stairs to the main bedroom. Regrettably, the single beds had seen better days and the owners, in my view, need to consider replacing the mattresses

    Thank you for your comments. Yes, that week you did have a couple of days of poor weather. We are aware of the drip from the hot tub roof which is just in one corner. A new hot tub has been on order since August but we are unable to have it installed until the cottage is empty as this would involve disappointing guests. When the old hot tub is removed we are having a new roof fitted before the new hot tub can be installed. The single beds are also being completely replaced in a couple of weeks time as they have been on order and we have specifically asked that they be delivered and installed on a Saturday to coincide with the change over day. We hope that next time you visit you will have a lovely stay. Property Owner

    We had everything we could need there including games, books and local guides.The hot tub was fantastic and such a treat and well maintained too. Lovely walks on site and beaches nearby with plenty and wildlife fauna and flora. Definitely a place to return to ….. thanks so much.

  • "Beautiful property, amazing place to relax and unwind (particularly whilst watching the birds on the feeder outside the main window)."

    Everything you could want in the property including a wealth of information. Add to this Philippa's vast knowledge of the area and you can't go wrong. Obvious the owners deeply care about their guests with the care they take over their property. With the only noise you hear (apart from the odd tractor going past) is cows and sheep you can't get more peaceful than that. A good central base for exploring. Philippa and Mark made us feel so welcome (along with their gorgeous dogs who kindly put up with our hesitant dog, although I did have our dog and the puppy playing chase around the living room whilst I was trying to clean on the last day

    That's such a nice comment thank you. Yes, we do try very hard to make thing as we would wish to find a cottage for ourselves Property Owner

    2 of us stayed, there was plenty of room. Very clean and the hot tub was the cleanest I have ever seen. Kitchen and sofas have been updated since the photos were taken. Everything provided for in the kitchen to cook a meal. Lots of information in the cottage about the area and where to visit. Plus DVDs and books. Lovely setting. Very quiet and private. The owners were extremely helpful and provided lots of information when we arrived about both the cottage and the area. Would definitely stay again.

About the location


Lampeter 12 miles; Cardigan 20 miles; Aberystwyth 24 miles.

This delightful seaside town is one of the most popular holiday resorts all year round, and it is easy to see why when you stroll along the sea edge and enjoy the beautiful views. The lovely range of gift shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs offer all you need, while boat trips are a wonderful opportunity to spot the playful dolphins, seals and other rare animals and birds that inhabit the bay's sheltering waters. For the hands-on members of your party why not try sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, and power boating with expert tuition available? The famous poet, Dylan Thomas, penned many works with inspiration in New Quay including "Quite Early One Morning" and you can follow the Dylan Thomas trail around the town. Just 7 miles away is Aberaeron, a lively Georgian harbour town with multi-coloured cottages and a good selection of restaurants and inns. This wonderful area of Wales not only has stunning sandy beaches, but also beautiful countryside walks and the outstanding Devil's Bridge is world-renowned for the three bridges, the narrow gauge steam railway and the cascading waterfalls. A perfect base for wonderful holidays, all year round.
