About the property

Drefach Felindre 2 miles.

A pretty traditional cottage, converted from a former dairy, situated on the edge of the owner’s woodland, between the popular market towns of Llandysul and Newcastle Emlyn in South Wales.

This cosy cottage is a perfect base for couples or small families looking to enjoy the peaceful scenery, yet being a short drive from the stunning coastline of Cardigan Bay.

All on the ground floor, there is one cosy bedroom and a family bathroom.

There is a traditional cottage-style kitchen with a dining area leading into the spacious sitting room which has an impressive woodburner, comfy seating and additional sleeping for two.

Outside, you can sit in the pretty front garden with a cup of coffee, or relax in the sun in the back garden, enclosed by a 3ft high picket fence and gate and surrounded by the rustling trees.

You are welcome to enjoy the owners’ woodland path or enjoy the comedic actions of the little resident cockerel.

Newcastle Emlyn is a thriving market town sat on the River Teifi, perfect for fishing trips or to pick up some fabulous local foods or enjoy a coffee in one of the cafés.

Alternatively, the quaint town of Llandysul, also on the Teifi, offers a café and small shops or the chance to enjoy the river at the local canoe paddling club.

Both areas have a selection of boutique shops, antique shops and various great places to eat.

You are ideally placed to enjoy the sweeping coastline of Cardigan Bay peppered with pretty beaches, including the National Trust Penbryn Beach, intimate coves and popular harbour towns.

The surrounding area offers a myriad of outdoor activities such as boat trips to spot local marine wildlife and birds, including the local bay’s dolphins.

You are a short drive from beautiful walks across the Preseli Hills, and just 16 miles from the Pembrokeshire National Park.

Slightly further afield are the beach resort of New Quay, famous for dolphin sightings, and the harbour town of Aberaeron with its multi-coloured houses lining the tranquil harbour.

A delightfully peaceful retreat, with a lovely mix of tradition and comfort, close to fantastic local countryside.

About the location


Llandysul 6.6 miles; Newcastle Emlyn 4.5 miles.

Drefach Felindre is a small village in Carmarthenshire nestled in the heart of three converging valleys and surrounded by wooded valleys and lovely walks. It is home to the National Woollen Mill, a real glimpse into Wales' rural industrial heritage. Drefach Felindre is close to the popular bustling market town of Newcastle Emlyn and the wider stretches of the meandering River Teifi, popular with walkers, canoeists and fisherman. Newcastle Emlyn has a good selection of antiques, craft and jewellery shops alongside many pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, as well as a ruined castle to explore. The rugged Cardiganshire coastline is just a short drive away with its wonderful sandy beaches. Why not take a boat trip to spot dolphins and seals at New Quay or visit the town of Carmarthen? Also in the area is Dylan Thomas' Boat House in Laugharne, Cenarth Falls, paintballing, Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo, Oakwood Theme Park and train rides at Henllan, plenty to keep you occupied for the whole of your holiday.
