  • "We just love this little hidden gem!"

  • "Dolau Meurig is a real 'home from home'."

    It is very comfortable and well equipped and beautifully decorated. Mary and Bill were extremely welcoming and helpful, recommending places to see and eat. The cottage is ideally furnished and laid out for people like us who are in their later years and lacking in mobility. There is a lot to see and do in the area, although you do need a car! Thank you, Mary and Bill. We have had a wonderful holiday and look forward to another visit if we're able.

  • "A great place to stay with good facilities and friendly owners."

    Beaches are about a 30-40 min drive, Borth is probably best for boarding/swimming. I recommend visiting the Llanerchaeron Stately Home and Gardens which are amazing.

  • "Our best cottage yet."

    The owners Mary & Bill are very caring, thoughtful and helpful. Even lent us a couple of picnic chairs to take on our days out. The view of the Cambrians is unique and ever changing. The cottage is very well equipped with large fridge/freezer, washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. We had no difficulty finding the location using Google maps.

  • "Lovely clean,comfortable and well equipped cottage."

    Very suited for a less able person like me with poor mobility. Everything on one level, walk in shower and higher toilet. There are plenty of choices of seating outside with stunning views. The chairs in the living room are high and easy to get in and out of. The views can be enjoyed from both double rooms and the living room. The owners-Mary and her husband couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "Lovely, comfortable cottage."

    Very well equipped. Hosts Mary and Bill were great, very helpful and kind. The views from the cottage are superb. It's lovely and quiet, easy to find and in an area we hadn't explored before. Great that there is a nature reserve within walking distance. On a clear night - magnificent dark skies. Saw red kites every day and were lucky enough to see dolphins on our boat trip. We hope to be back. We would highly recommend Dolau Meurig.

  • "The accommodation was just what we originally wanted."

    Unfortunately, our plans changed but my young son was very happy there. The property had all that we needed. A recommendation would be for a larger sign at the entrance to the property.

The property

Pontrhydfendigaid 2 miles.

Dolau Meurig, an endearing property, displays idyllic views of the Cambrian Mountains, two miles from the small village of Pontrhydfendigaid in Mid Wales.

Providing delightful accommodation for five people, Dolau Meurig can be enjoyed as a return base for an outdoor adventure break, or a relaxing home-from-home for time away from everyday life.

Standing next to the owner's home, enter the lovely enclosed grounds and step into your traditional holiday cottage which welcomes you from the moment that you arrive.

The property enjoys an L-shaped hallway, first presenting a well-appointed galley kitchen with a charming breakfast table and appealing country-cottage-style fittings.

This leads you into the spacious yet cosy living/dining room, benefiting from a stunning open fire and a picture window overlooking the glorious scenery where Red Kites can often be viewed soaring above.

Dolau Meurig comes with three delightful bedrooms; a king-size, a double and a single room, two of which also enjoy fabulous views.

About the location


Tregaron 5.5 miles; Devil’s Bridge 9 miles; Aberystwyth 16 miles.

Pontrhydfendigaid is a small village in Mid Wales between Devil’s Bridge and Tregaron. The village lies on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains in beautiful countryside. It sits on the River Teifi and his home to a local shop and two nearby pubs, the Red Lion and the Black Lion. 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. 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.
