Within easy reach of the beaches of Cardigan Bay, these very comfortable cottages are peacefully set in 11½ acres of grounds and command breathtaking views over the mystical Cych Valley. Carefully converted and thoughtfully planned throughout, the interiors offer an ideal combination – old beams for character, multi-fuel stoves for cosiness and modern fittings for convenience. Within its acres of rural grounds are ruins of its 13th-century long house, set beside ponds, (toddlers beware), an ideal setting for adults to relax while supervising youngsters as they explore the pond life. A meadow and steep ancient woodland meet the River Cych, a Site of Special Scientific Interest. There is a riverside pub with children’s play area within a 5-minute car journey.
The setting is perfect for making the most of both coast and countryside – sufficiently inland to avoid sea mists, yet convenient for the sandy coves of Cardigan Bay and the superb scenery of the Preseli Mountains and Pembrokeshire National Park. Cardigan and Carmarthen (both about half an hour by car) sport excellent golf courses. Pony-trekking, fly fishing on the River Teifi and the Coracle Centre at Cenarth Falls (famous for its seasonal salmon leap) can all be found within 10 minutes’ drive. And a real taste of Wales is available virtually on the doorstep; the neighbouring farm makes delicious traditional world-famous Caws Cenarth cheese.
This tranquil rural location is only 3 miles from delightful Newcastle Emlyn, with its good choice of shops, inns and restaurants. This is an interesting town to explore, with a ruined castle, craft and antique shops and a leisure centre with swimming-pool. Shops 3 miles.

This comfortable single storey cottage has uninterrupted valley views from its private terrace. The ideal retreat for those just seeking peace and tranquillity, with a ’vista’, the full extent of which no one has yet caught on camera. Open-plan living/dining room with multi-fuel stove.

Ty Rhos Mair Ref: OU5

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Gilfachrheda, Ty Rhos Mair (Rosemary Cottage) was built in about 1800 and has been restored to provide an elegant and comfortable holiday home. The property, one of a pair, is the perfect base for discovering all that the beautiful and dramatic west Wales coastline has to offer.

From New Quay itself, walk along the Wales Coastal Path admiring the stunning views, or just wander around the quaint streets visiting the appealing shops. Here, find plenty of cafés and eateries, and sitting on the stone harbour wall with fish and chips or ice cream, looking out for the frequent visiting bottlenose dolphins, is a pastime not to be missed!

These comfortable, refurbished, barn conversions are situated on this 91-acre working farm, 4 miles from Cardigan Bay, well off the beaten track, with superb views of river and countryside. Accessing the cottages down a half mile of track, each cottage has its own patio (Rose Barn and The Coach House have their own gardens), there is a shared garden and the surrounding farmland is bounded on three sides by rolling terrain. Along the fourth side flows the Teifi – at whose mouth the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path begins. The river’s changeable tidal waters offer free fishing for trout and salmon, and wonderful opportunities for observing abundant bird and wildlife, including otters.
Rosehill Farm’s setting offers the best of both worlds in an outstandingly lovely area – not only the scenic seascapes of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, but also the breathtaking grandeur of the nearby Preseli Mountains. Both coast and countryside offer superb walking and riding, as well as a rich variety of bird, animal and plant life. Long stretches of steep cliffs, small sandy coves and tracts of National Trust land are features of the Pembroke shoreline to be found within 5 miles – and there are many places for swimming or launching small boats. Touring in the area can take in a wide variety of historical sites, including a Bronze Age burial chamber at Cerrig-y-Gof, 13th-century castle ruins at Cilgerran and Newcastle Emlyn and museums of weaving at Maesslyn and Drefach Felindre. Golfers will find a fine 18-hole course only 4 miles away at Gwbert on the Cardigan Bay coast where glorious scenery is an ideal accompaniment to a good game.

Breathtaking views

These four fine detached holiday properties with breathtaking views over Cardigan Bay, are furnished to a very good standard and are just 100 yards from the cliff top. Gwbert-on-Sea is a small, quiet hamlet on the eastern shore of the mouth of the Teifi Estuary, just a couple of miles outside Cardigan. The settlement takes its name from a wandering saint. St Gwbert is said to have landed here and sheltered in a cave. The shoreline is marked by rugged cliffs and small shingle bays, with large stretches of sandbank exposed at low tide, and the area gives superb views over a diverse and scenic landscape. The ancient oak woodland of the Teifi Valley, the tidal marshes of the estuary, and the boundary of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park can all be appreciated from here. The 18-hole golf course, the home of Cardigan Golf Club, also offers fine views of the estuary and sea, and from the headland you can look across to Cardigan Island. The mud and sand flats of the estuary attracts a great variety of birds. In the autumn such waders as the redshank, oystercatcher and curlew can be seen feeding here, along with several species of migrating duck. The headland of Craig y Gwbert is the site of an Iron Age Fort. Pieces of pottery have also been found near Gwbert, and are now on display in Cardigan museum. Leisure facilities are available for £5 per person per day at the owner’s hotel, and include small gym, sauna and 7 seater jacuzzi. Shops 31/2 miles, pub 100 yards.
