The property

Alma House is an attractive cottage in Abercych, with five acres of fields and gardens nestling in the beautiful Teifi Valley just a few miles from the sandy beaches of North Pembrokeshire.

With a four star Visit Wales rating Alma House offers visitors free fishing on a private stretch of the famous River Teifi and the River Cych for Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon.

Abercych is a traditional Welsh village and has two pubs within walking distance of the cottage, The Penrhiw Inn a friendly local Welsh pub and The Nags Head, which serves excellent food and real ales, itâ??s deservedly listed as one of the top ten riverside pubs in the UK by the Guardian.

To the rear of the cottage spacious are safely fenced gardens and a hillside meadow which overlook a pretty wooded valley and fields, which buzzards and red kites wheel over throughout the year.

Across the road is a mix of pasture and woodland bordered by three rivers where you can enjoy the local wildlife which includes otters, kingfishers and dippers and if anglingâ??s your thing you can try for one of the sea trout which the Teifi is famous for.

Thereâ??s ample parking for two cars at the side of the property directly outside the main entrance making unloading your shopping and suitcases an easy exercise.

Inside this two storey, semi-detached cottage the timber beamed lounge is furnished with leather sofas, Persian rugs and a modern woodburner.

For your entertainment thereâ??s a wide screen TV fitted with a Chromecast, a DVD player and a sizeable collection of films and if you tire of screens we offer a good range of books.

The far end of the lounge has a leather top table and chairs - ideal for board games - as well as a sofa bed.

Three steps up from the lounge thereâ??s a spacious kitchen-dining room with windows looking out over the gardens.

You can prepare your food on an ultra-modern hob and electric oven, other fixtures include a fridge and washing machine and fitted units.

Away from the cooking area is a very large teak dining table, the focal point of the room a great place to gather round for long, relaxed meals with friends and family.

One doorway from the kitchen leads into a pretty conservatory equipped with comfortable steamer chairs, a table, a bench and dozens of well-tended indoor plants, the perfect place to chill out and watch the birds visiting the feeders in the garden.

The other door from the kitchen leads to the hall which leads to the main entrance at the side of the house via the hallway.

The ground floor bathroom is large and is equipped with an over-bath shower, a bath, WC and a bidet.

Thereâ??s an outside loo separate from the house in the garden with great views over the paddock area.

Back inside the cottage a staircase leads to the bedrooms, the first is a twin room with views out over the village, itâ??s equipped with a wardrobe, bedside tables and lamps and a dressing table.

Across the hall the second bedroom is a double with bedside tables, lamps, a dressing table, walk in wardrobe and two windows to the front and the side, allowing in plenty of natural light.
