  • "Truly relaxing and tranquil area with views of the sea and lands."

    The simplicity of hut life is rejuvenating, giving you strength to face reality when your holiday is over! The owners are absolutely lovely and attentive! Jane is a superhero who helped my with an issue I was having regarding transport which meant I had to change plans at very short notice. Jane fixed the problem with absolutely no fuss. Legend. I don’t want to spoil the surprise so I’ll just say that they leave you a few treats on the kitchen table for you to enjoy during your stay (hint: yum!) Thanks Jane and Gary, and Sykes for ease of planning and amending booking.

    Rosy, thank you so much for your lovely review. We were delighted to have you as our guest in Cynefin and that you found the Shepherds Hut a peaceful space to rejuvenate and enjoy this special location on the Cardigan Bay coast. So glad you enjoyed the welcome homemade treats! We would love to welcome you back for a future stay. Property Owner

The property

New Quay 3.2 miles.

Cynefin Shepherd’s Hut is an inviting holiday retreat situated in scenic and peaceful coastal farmland between New Quay and Llangrannog on the west Wales coast.

Perfect for a couple who are looking for a restful or romantic escape to the country and within walking distance of the spectacular Ceredigion coastline.

Cynefin Shepherd’s Hut is ideally located for walkers of the Wales Coast Path.

With studio-style living and views out to Cardigan Bay, this property is a fantastic choice.

Inside, you have all your living amenities in one place with a smart open-plan living and kitchen area for whipping up a tasty meal in the evening.

Why not enjoy these meals alfresco-style with your own outside undercover dining area allowing you to take in the views while the pair of you enjoy your food and a glass or two of wine?

When the sun does start to set, the private shower room invites you to take a warm steamy wash before tucking in for the night on the spacious king bed.

If you can tear yourself from your tranquil retreat, lace up your shoes and take a walk from your door to discover an abundance of lovely walks including quiet lanes, hidden wooded valleys, gushing streams and waterfalls, secluded smugglers coves and beaches, spectacular coastal scenery and panoramic views.

For the more energetic, the coastal walks along the Wales Coast Path from Cwmtydu to New Quay and Llangrannog are a must.

Alternatively, jump in the car to explore what this part of Wales has to offer.

The coastal town of New Quay is a short drive away where you can tuck into local cuisine at a range of independent cafes and eateries and hop on board a boat trip out to see the resident bottle nosed dolphins in the Bay, before enjoying a calming amble along New Quay Harbour, or a treat of evening fish and chips.

A drive further north takes you to the picturesque coastal town and harbour of Aberaeron with its colourful Georgian architecture and several renowned restaurants.

The National Trust historic country estate of Llanerchaeron is close-by and offers a great afternoon out for all the family with its walled garden, ornamental lake, model estate farm and country manor house, and of course the obligatory tea house!

A short drive south takes you to a selection of coastal villages and sandy beaches including Llangrannog, Penbryn, Tresaith, Aberporth and Mwnt.

The market town of Cardigan has its own restored castle overlooking the River Teifi where you can enjoy a variety of eateries and cafes along with a range of interesting independent shops throughout the town.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is also a short hop from Cardigan across the Teifi where the wide sandy beaches of Poppit Sands and Newport beckon for another day out.

Enjoy this lovely spot all to yourselves by booking your stay at Cynefin Shepherds Hut.
