  • "Quiet location overlooking a tree lined valley and Cilgerran Castle, with easy access from the main road."

    The property and gardens are well adapted for anyone with poor mobility. Internally, the property is very comfortable and we would certainly consider returning.

  • "Avalon is a lovely place to stay."

    Very clean, had everything we needed and a very nice welcome pack from the owners. Ideally situated for the Pembrokeshire Coast. Local shop and Post Office on the doorstep, local pub a five minute walk away. A traditional pub that takes cash only. Landlady & locals are very welcoming.

  • "This is an extremely comfortable bungalow, decorated to a high specification and ideally situated for local towns and attractions."

    There are some additional access aides (slopped pathways, grab rails in the wet room and all flooring on the same level) which would assist those needing additional support whilst being unobtrusive to those who are able bodied. The owners are next door if needed. We had a lovely stay at Avalon, would return and would highly recommend

  • "Amazing accommodation set in an idyllic location with plenty of wildlife to admire."

    As soon as we opened the front door we felt welcomed. The bungalow was warm, clean, light and inviting with a lovely layout. Dai and Sue, who were amazing throughout our stay, left notes with clear instructions on how everything worked. A well equipped kitchen, with complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, wine and mince pies with milk in the fridge. My cuppa brew of Welsh tea was most enjoyable after such a long journey. The Two double bedrooms were spacious with plenty of storage and very comfortable beds. The shower/wet room was big enough with a lovely light funnel in the ceiling that allowed the daylight to shine through in the morning. Although it was mostly dark this time of year, much better in the summer I'm sure, a nice feature either way. The living room was very comfortable with plenty of seating, a good TV for the evening and books to thumb through. The dining room was nice to sit in and enjoy our Christmas Dinner, Dai and Sue had a tree set up in the corner with a few perfectly proportioned decorations around the bungalow. The back garden was so big and well kept, as it was raining most of our stay we didn't use it as much, but I'm sure it would be lovely in the sunnier months. There was a bird feeder that you could see from the dining room and kitchen that had a variety of birds throughout the day making you admire the scenery. There was plenty of walks from the front door to enjoy, down the gorge to the river or to the castle just a Five minute stroll down a pleasant pathway. You can also see the castle from the back garden which is a very unique back drop. The castle was wonderful to walk around and the views were spectacular even on a cloudy, wet day. The area around the bungalow was so peaceful and the locals were so friendly and welcoming. Cardigan was just down the road, a really lovely place to shop and enjoy the history. This was a perfect base to go exploring, from all the beaches to the towns or the walking routes. I highly recommend Avalon to anyone wanting a relaxing, carefree holiday. A big thank you to Dai and Sue for making our Christmas getaway a very memorable one.

  • "Lovely bungalow and well situated for our needs."

    The weather was poor during our visit but it didn't matter as there is still plenty to see and do close by and even on the worse day the bungalow is so warm and cosy ,we just took it easy inside. The village has a well stocked shop although Tesco is not far away in Cardigan . A word of caution , don't rely on the sat nav , ours lead us a merry dance , find the shop in the centre of the village and take lane next to it . About 25 metres on the left is a another lane , the bungalow is along there on the right . Thought I would drop that in as it is a lot easier to having directions than reversing out of a footpath in the dark and then driving up some bemused residents drive way , like we did . We would highly recommend the bungalow , enjoy .

  • "Dai and Sue were excellent hosts with all we expected and more in the cottage."

    The resident woodpecker kept us entertained, and Cilgerran is a quiet backwater off the main road with a lot of history - the beautifuk River Teifi and Cilgerran castle are a short walk away. The more adventurous could also walk to the Welsh Wildlife Centre just outside Cilgerran - we took the car ! - all in all plenty to do in this lovely part of the world. The crowds do not flock to the border of Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire in the same way as south Pembrokeshire, so we felt very comfortable in these CoVid times. The slight disappointment was that there was nowhere to get a meal in the village, but our hosts provided a list of local pubs and restaurants a few minutes drive away. Cilgerran boasts a lovely shop at the corner of the road leading to the cottage, which meant we did not need to travel to get the food we needed. All in all a delightful break, and we would love to return.
