Whether you want to relax in the hot tub with a glass of wine, cwtch up (Welsh for cuddle up) with a good book, explore the spectacular mountain scenery, walk the coastal path or enjoy wildlife and nature at its best, our cottage is the ideal, cosy, peaceful place to escape to and breathe.
Located near the beautiful Georgian town of Aberaeron, market town Tregaron, and university towns of Lampeter, and Aberystwyth, and with a great pub within easy walking distance, you will go home recharged.
Cwtch Cottage has its own separate, secure, and private entrance, as an attached but independent cottage next door to our own house. That means that we are on hand if you need help, but will leave you totally in peace otherwise!
Totally self contained and set in 7 acres of fields including a one acre natural spring fed lake and an additional pond teaming with wildlife, depending on the time of year, you will see red kites and buzzards overhead, several species of duck, greylags and Canada geese, and our regular visitors, the heron and the occasional cormorant. There is such low light pollution that you will almost certainly be treated to a stunning night sky, bright stars and breathtaking views of the Milky Way.
Cwtch Cottage has its own all year spa hot tub for exclusive use by the cottage guests. It is screened off to ensure your privacy while at the same time allowing you to enjoy stunning views of the lake to the front, the hills and mountains to the side views over extensive country to the rear and the Milky Way and stars at night.
There is also a picnic table to the front of the cottage with views over the lake and a bench to the side.
You are welcome to take a walk around the property, try your hand at fishing as our guests, say hello to our ponies, dogs and cats or just enjoy some undisturbed peace and quiet to help you recharge.
The cottage is tastefully decorated and has broadband, a 42" TV with FreeView, a Blueray DVD player with DVDs and a range of books, games and magazines for you to enjoy. There is also an Amazon Firestick connected which you can use to log onto your own account.
The kitchen is also very well equipped with halogen hob/grill/oven, microwave, dishwasher and has both a small fridge and large fridge/freezer. There is ample cutlery, crockery, glassware, pots, pans and utensils.
A welcome tea tray consisting of Earl Grey and English breakfast teas, green tea and peppermint tea, coffee and hot chocolate together with a choice of biscuits will be ready waiting for you when you arrive.
If you need to do some washing, the washer/drier makes life easier and there is an ironing board and decent iron.
There is a shower room with shower, WC and wash basin downstairs.
Cwtch Cottage is located in the safest county in the UK, Ceredigion, within easy reach of mountains and coast.
Our nearest neighbour is several hundred yards in each direction so peace is guaranteed.
If you are a foodie, there's the Hungry Ram less than a mile away which does great food and welcomes well behaved dogs (mention at time of booking which is advised as it is very popular).
One of Wales' top pubs, the Talbot in Tregaron, whose chef trained with Pierre Marco White, is only a short drive away. There are numerous other excellent restaurants in Aberaeron, recently recognised as one of the best places to be in the UK. Notable places to eat and drink include The Cellar and Manuka while the Harbourmaster right next door to the harbour offers nationally recognised high quality epicurian delights! In addition, The Hive offers great seafood, and ribs, to go with its renown honey ice cream by day and is a lively bar, with regular live music by night. We are also within an hour of Ynyshir Hall if Michelin starred cuisine is your thing.
If you fancy a quiet night in, there is a good Chinese take away, fish and chip shop and kebab shop fifteen minutes away and a great Indian and others within 20 minutes.
Equestrian lovers will find themselves in the heart of Welsh cob country and easy reach of some of the world's top studs who welcome visitors by arrangement.
For lovers of arts and crafts, there is an active summer arts trail as well as regular fairs and exhibitions. Perhaps a view from Cwtch Cottage could provide the inspiration for your next painting, drawing or photograph!
Whatever you enjoy, Cwtch Cottage is well equipped with information leaflets for a wide range of different venues to visit and activities to try if you want to go off exploring.
