Property Details of Wales Cottage

Our clean, warm, detached holiday cottage, with its own hayloft TV & games room, (darts, snooker/pool, table tennis, table football, air hockey, piano) sleeps 1-6 persons and is available all year. It is located 5 miles from the sea and nestled at the end of a country lane, half a mile from the road, in the grounds of our smallholding. Surrounded by 14 acres of wildflower meadows and enjoying stunning views over the surrounding countryside, the cottage is wheelchair friendly with easy access to the entire ground floor. Bedlinen and towels are provided and beds made up. If you are seeking peace and relaxation come and enjoy the tranquil surroundings of our rural retreat, with Cardigan Bay with its safe, sandy beaches and resident bottlenosed dolphins just a short drive. If you prefer a more active holiday then West Wales offers everything from easy walks on the Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion Coast Paths to Quad Biking or Coasteering, a quiet game of Golf or the excitement of Salmon Fishing, gentle Pony Trekking to White Water Canoeing - enough to tire the most energetic of children (and their parents!) We understand that your pet might want a holiday too so we also welcome a maximum of two well behaved dogs, free of charge! Sorry but we do not accept any other type of pet!

What to See, Where to Go: Swallow Cottage sits high on a hillside one valley inland from the spectacular heritage coastline and its safe sandy beaches. Cardigan Bay has been designated the first Marine Heritage Coast in Britain and local beaches are quiet and clean with many having won awards or Blue Flags. Local beaches are Penbryn (National Trust(, Llangranog, Tresaith and Aberporth all 5-6 miles or 10 minutes in the car. The famous Poppit Sands Blue Flag is 10 miles as is the resort of New Quay. Harbour Beach is Blue Flag Surfing and Body Boarding are popular at Mwnt and New Quay. Rare Bottlenose dolphins harbour porpoises and grey seals can be seen all along the coast and boat trips and sea fishing are available at New Quay and Aberaeron. The Red Kite breeds locally and Choughs are often seen on the sea cliffs. There are many excellent walks including the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the new Ceredigion Coastal Path. Coarse trout and salmon fishing is available locally as well as dry slope skiing, horse riding, pony trekking, quad biking, cycling and golf. Try a gentle canoe paddle through the Cilgerran Gorge with its otters and kingfishers or a more invigorating whitewater ride on the international course at Llandysul. Cycle or ride on Brechfa Forest trails or watch the Motor Rally of Great Britain held there in October each year. Cilgerran Castle and the Wildlife Centre, the Museum of the Welsh Woollen Industry, the Teifi Valley Steam Railway and the National Coracle Centre and Waterfalls at Cenarth are all close by. Newcastle Emlyn (4 miles) is our nearest small market town with its ruined castle riverside walks and a good selection of pubs, cafes and shops. Visit flour and woollen mills, cheese makers, honey farms and vineyards and enjoy Welsh lamb and freshly caught fish. The craft centres in the attractive Georgian town of Aberaeron and at Cardigan are well worth a visit and you will find many local artisans offering a wide range of goods to tempt you including paintings, pottery, glassware, jewellery, furniture and hand woven fabrics and clothing. Cardigan is the starting point for the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and home to a Walking Festival each October.

All of Pembrokeshire is less than an hour on our quiet roads and Tenby is a popular resort in summer. Whilst there try to include a visit to the Museum of Speed at Pembrey, Pendine Sands or Dylan Thomas's boat house at Laugharne, where some of his famous works were written. St Davids with the Cathedral and Bishops Palace and Ramsey Island are worth a visit and the North Pembrokeshire coastline is rugged and spectacular. Oakwood Leisure Park and Folly Farm provide an exciting day out for all the family. Haverfordwest has good shopping facilities and the drive over the Preseli Mountains on the B4329 has wonderful distant views. The Preseli Mountains visible from the cottage are full of prehistoric remains including the Pentre Ifan burial chamber and were the source of the Bluestones that make up the inner ring at Stonehenge. Newport and its beach are very popular and Fishguard is an interesting small town commemorating the last invasion of these shores by the French in 1797. For the adventurous a day trip to Ireland is available from Fishguard on the high speed Stena service Crossing time is only 99 minutes You can visit Ballykissangel, Waterford or take a run up to Dublin.

Aberystwyth is our county town and a ride up the cliff railway gives panoramic views of the town and bay. The return trip on the Vale of Rheidol Narrow Gauge Railway from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge is a must for most of our visitors with dramatic waterfalls and spectacular mountain scenery. The National Library houses some of the Wales greatest treasures. Just to the east are the wild Cambrian Mountains with several circular drives for a longer day out. For keen gardeners the National Botanic Garden of Wales is nearby This 45 million Millennium showcase is set in 500 acres and centred on the Great Glass House, the largest single span oval glasshouse in the world designed by Sir Norman Foster. This is the first major botanic garden in the UK for over 100 years. For those who prefer their gardens smaller Aberglasney is an oasis of peace and calm Both are near Carmarthen and just 30 minutes drive. There is so much to do and see in this quiet and tranquil area that one visit may not be enough.
