  • "Fantastic cottage in a peaceful corner of Mid Wales."

    Beautifully equipped with everything you could possibly need. A bit remote but we knew this before we booked. A pleasant drive into Aberystwyth and a great little pub a 10 minute drive away open for food Thursday to Sunday. Lovely riverside walk in walking distance from the cottage. Wonderful scenery whichever direction you drive.

  • "Willow Cottage is well situated about 7 miles from Aberystwyth with easy access to both coast and interior."

    The house is spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were excellent. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. We would certainly return to both house and area again.

  • "The cottage is delightful, set in a wooded estate with its own garden complete with chairs and table for relaxation."

    Extremely well equipped with a range cooker and good info about a local pub who brought us an amazing Sunday lunch and a Chinese restaurant who brought an evening meal all the way from Aberystwyth. There is a small library of very readable books, plenty of qwerky additions like cat and dog mugs, (the illustrations) and a chicken inspired milk jug. The property is exceptionally well maintained and very clean and welcoming. The owner lives on site and is so helpful, even printing a map for our return home! I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

  • "Lovely well equipped cottage in a beautiful part of Wales."

    Plenty of places to go such as beaches at Aberystwyth or new Quay or Twyn by car. Lots of walks for all locally or further afield. Cottage is comfortable and has everything you need. Nice log burner for cold nights. We went early June during covid restrictions. Cottage was very clean for us. Some nice pubs to eat if happy to drive. Superstore near Aberystwyth if eating in. Best to book restaurants in advance during these restrictions. Would definitely go to this cottage again. Thank you to Lindsey.

  • "A lovely touch was the welcome tray with a packet of ground coffee, milk and cookies."

    The recommendation of the cycle path to Aberystwyth was very helpful in planning our holiday. I appreciated the texts from the owner prior to, during and after our trip. The only thing that didn't work so well for us was amending the heating when it got chilly...the control unit was complex and appeared to be fixed. Overall I would recommend this cottage without reservation.

  • "Great service, really pleased with everything."

    The best equipped kitchen we have ever seen in a holiday cottage. Stanning walks and cycling trails. Saw red kites every day! It was not clear from the website that our cottage is part of a complex of three cottages. A plan of the complex on the web page would be helpful.

Lying within the beautiful country estate and community of Crosswood in mid-west Wales is this charming one bedroom, single storey dwelling, Willow Cottage.

Spend a relaxing and romantic retreat here with your loved one and delight in being within easy reach of many beautiful places, including the idyllic Elan Valley and the bustling coastal town of Aberystwyth, returning each day to the comfort of Willow Cottage.

Enter through the quaint stable door and be welcomed into the lofty open-plan living space, where a woodburning stove sits proudly before the plush seating, snuggle up on the sofa here after a busy day and watch the Freeview TV.

A dining table and chairs offers the perfect spot to enjoy a romantic meal for two, prepared in the wonderful, neat kitchen space, with a large gas range cooker and hob at your fingertips, as well as a fridge/freezer and a microwave, offering all you need to impress your other half with culinary skills!

Move beneath the high ceiling complete with exposed timber beams and discover the delightful bedroom where you'll have no trouble winding down, home to a double bed and a beautiful antique-style wardrobe for your things.

Choose to relax with a hot soak in the tub within the bathroom, or feel refreshed with a shower in the separate walk-in shower, a bright space to begin the day in.

Sip on your morning cup of tea in the pretty enclosed garden, with a table and chairs for some alfresco dining too, it's your own little haven to enjoy the crisp country air.

A great addition on any self-catered stay are convenient laundry facilities, with Willow Cottage enjoying access to a shared utility room where you'll find a washing machine and tumble dryer, shared with the neighbouring cottage.

For those interested in the history of this beautiful area of Wales, head to the eerie ruins of Strata Florida Abbey where generations of Welsh princes are buried, as well as incorporating the Frongoch Mine Ruins into a walk too.

A lovely day can be spent exploring the Hafod Estate spanning 200-hectares offering a range of walking trails leading to picturesque woodland and waterfalls, whilst the magnificent Devil's Bridge Falls aren't far and offer an amazing viewpoint from the bridge over the deep and plunging gorge.

Find more natural beauty at The Magic of Life Butterfly House to get up close to many spectacular butterflies, before visiting the Bwlch Nany yr Arian Forest where you can enjoy seeing the daily red kite feeding, and stop in at the lovely café for a treat.

Head to the lively coastal town of Aberystwyth for plenty of restaurants and pubs to relax in, along with a host of attractions; head up to Constitution Hill via the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway, in operation since 1896, this funicular will bring you up to some stunning views over the town and the sea, and don't miss a chance to enjoy the scenic countryside via the Vale of Rheidol Railway, a 12-mile long track with Edwardian first-class carriages.

Spend sunny days on one of the town's two beaches, taking part in watersports or simply enjoying the sands, wander around the imposing castle ruins and delight in walking along the Victorian promenade and pier, before venturing up to the Pen Dinas Hill Fort.

With plenty of options awaiting you, Willow Cottage makes a wonderful holiday home for a couple's break in Wales.
