  • "Bank House was a delight."

    Clean, comfortable, well equipped. Ideally located to visit this area of Wales. Jenny the owner is a lovely lady and very welcoming and lives nearby in case of any issues (of which there were none). The welcome supplies for dog and humans were an additional bonus. We will definitely return.

    Due to the very adverse weather we stayed in the cottage more than we normally would, which only made us enjoy the comforts even more. Many thanks Jenny for the delicious cake, eggs and wine. We will hopefully be back again next year.

  • "A beautiful cottage for 2 or 3 people."

    Very comfortable and well furnished. The main bedroom with its vaulted ceiling is a delight and a lot of thought has gone into the room lighting. The kitchen is well equipped with items such as electronic scales not usually found in holiday lets. The only small criticism was that the cooking utensils such as pans and bowls were sized for a larger group not a couple. The internet was very poor during my stay, worse than dial up, and I had no 3G phone connectivity. The owner says this is being addressed so hopefully others will have a better service. All in all a wonderful cottage with a delightful, helpful owner which I’d be happy to visit again.

    Thank you David for your kind comments. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in the cottage. You will be glad to know that I have now changed provider for wifi and the cottage now offers a much improved service with BT- fibre. Jenny Property Owner

    She had left milk and eggs in the fridge with a delicious cake she had baked that day. The property is quiet and homely with all the comfort features you can think of with very comfortable furnishings. We visited 2 dog beaches within 20 mile radius and a lovely waterfall.

    Quiet village but pretty and some nice walks. Thank you Jenny for the milk, eggs and the bottle of wine. Shower was powerful, bed comfortable and overall a homely cottage. Nice little back garden, could do with a barbecue. We had such lovely weather a bbq would have been nice. Fabulous beaches, castles and countryside all in close proximity from the cottage. We enjoyed our week and the weather certainly helped but the cottage would be cosy what ever the westher I sm sure as it has heating and a log burner. Not that we needed them. We will be back. Thank you xx

    Be aware that if you rely on the internet for business purposes or keeping in touch with international family the service at Bank House is very inadequate, however if you are after a complete get away this is not an issue. As Aussies we appreciated the Australian Shiraz too Jenny. Thank you for a very comfortable stay.

    Dear Lynda, I’m so glad you had a comfortable stay in Bank House and I’m sorry that you found the internet inadequate. We are in a rural area so don’t receive quite the same internet speeds you might be used to in the city but the service is generally very adequate for streaming movies etc. Jenny Property Owner

    What a wonderful haven from the everyday hustle and bustle this place is, and Jenny (the owner) is lovely. Hadn’t been to this area of Wales for 30 years, and I don’t think we could have picked a better place to stay. Nice secure patio area for the dog to be able to go outside, and the cottage is laid out beautifully. Hunkering down with the log burner blazing on days where the weather was against us was absolute bliss. Definitely one to book again when we decide to revisit the area, five stars aren’t enough.

  • "Beautiful & cosy cottage in a lovely village location, lovely aspect completely unoverlooked with beautiful open views to the rear of the property."

    Once you're inside you don't feel like you're in a terrace, the exterior walls (16" thick) and deep double glazing keeping out all noise from outside. Not that there was much as it's such a peaceful spot, but during our stay workmen arrived to carry out some maintenance on the electricity cables in the village and about 12 of them turned up in about 6 vehicles with a generator which was set up near the little green opposite the cottage, and we didn't hear a thing, we woke naturally and when I pulled the curtain back I couldn't believe all the activity. They were only there a day but it certainly put the soundproofing of the cottage to the test! This is one of the best & most thoughtfully equipped cottages we have ever stayed in, there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't provided - even tea & coffee and tin foil, cling film & kitchen roll. And there were even dog bowls & treats provided for your four-legged friend. Lovely & clean and a super bathroom with impressive shower - great water pressure too! The personal touches like lemon cake, wine & eggs from the owner's chickens were greatly appreciated. We didn't use the log burner in the end as the central heating was so efficient and we even had to turn several of the radiators down. Loved the charming & cosy decor and particularly loved the artisan rustic furniture, all very in keeping with the lovely character of the cottage. Very comfortable king size bed. Lovely dog walk straight from the door down a traffic free lane, all the way down to the river, but be warned, you have to climb back up! Newcastle Emlyn 10 mins drive away, lots of lovely shops including a butcher, an organic produce shop where we bought some artisan sourdough bread. The Cardigan Bay coastline is 30 mins drive away & we had a lovely coastal path walk to Tresaith. All in all, an excellently equipped, delightfully cosy cottage in a peaceful, get-away-from-it-all village setting but only 10 mins from 'civilization' and 30 mins to lovely beaches. Perfect for a couple or a couple with one child/teenager. Can't recommend highly enough. We will be back!

  • "The details of the cottage were misleading,it shows a picture of a river which looks near cottage but its at least 1hours walk if you are able, opposite the cottage is a grave yard which we were upset about as both having lost partners were the last thing we wanted on our holiday ,although it takes a dog the owner is not dog friendly, lot if rules about what dogs must not do!"

    Don’t take dogs if you try to impose these rules… the stair carpet needed replacing and the bedroom curtains had holes in them also the hand rail was really sticky as if it had been repainted and as the stairs are quite steep you really need the rail so as not to trip,the cottage is a distance from shops etc and is quite isolated would not recommend

    I am sorry that your experience of staying in Bank House was not all that you hoped for. However in the description it clearly states that the nearest town with shops is 3.3 miles away and that Capel Iwan is a small hamlet. There is a map available which shows the location which is always helpful when choosing a cottage so that visitors are not disappointed or surprised on arrival. Researching the area would have shown that there is a Chapel nearby and so of course a graveyard on the far side of the village green. Unfortunately whist I knew you were bringing one dog which is permitted at this cottage you brought two. In all Sykes properties, not just mine, no dogs are allowed upstairs or on the furnishings. These are simple requests which take into account that some guests may have allergies to pets. Unfortunately you did allow your dogs to go upstairs and so created a lot of work to clear up the mess that was left. Property Owner

The property

Newcastle Emlyn 3.3 miles.

The cottage is a perfect retreat for couples or small families looking to explore the fabulous local countryside, yet being close to a bustling small town and just twelve miles from the beautiful sandy beaches of West Wales.

Set over two floors, there are two cosy bedrooms with a family bathroom.

This is a deceptively spacious property with lovely character features and with plenty of room to relax, with a well-equipped kitchen opening out onto the patio and a spacious dining area leading through to a cosy sitting room where you can snuggle up in front of the TV.

Outside, you can sit in the split-level courtyard-style garden and enjoy an early evening drink before popping into town for a bite to eat or perhaps planning the following days adventures.

Bank House is the ultimate choice for a rural break to the heart of South Wales.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1017078, together they can sleep 8 guests.

Capel Iwan Cottages

Nestled in the small village of Capel Iwan, within the heart of South Wales, are these charming cottages, Bank House and Gwynfa. Both cottages have been renovated to a high-standard and come with a varied selection of contemporary furnishings and quality fixtures whilst still managing to retain some of its original features such as the exposed beams, making these properties a homely base to spend your holiday, and are most suitable for families or a group of friends. Be welcomed into delightful sitting rooms with a range of seating set around the woodburning stoves encased in a small inglenook fireplace. Find quaint kitchens with lovely cream units and sleek wooden worktops offering all the necessary appliances needed to cook up some delicious meals, whilst the dining areas have plenty of seating for those family gatherings over a sparkling glass of champagne. The local town of Newcastle Emlyn is a popular hub of rural life, with fabulous little shops and cafés, and sits alongside the River Teifi which is renowned for fishing all the way down river through the pretty village of Cenarth with its popular waterfalls through to Cardigan and out into the bay. You are ideally placed to explore the fabulous sandy beaches and craggy coves of Cardigan Bay with the popular villages of Tresaith and Aberporth just 12 miles away, or perhaps take a trip a little further to the traditional seaside resort of New Quay and you may be lucky to catch a sighting of the resident dolphins from the harbour wall. The area offers numerous outdoor activities including marine and wildlife spotting boat trips, coasteering and whitewater canoeing or fishing on the River Teifi. To the south are the Preselli Hills with fabulous heathland terrain, perfect for walking and enjoying panoramic views.
