Dairy Cottages offers 4-star self-catering accommodation in the tranquil setting of rural West Wales. This traditional stone-and-slate barn has been newly converted into two holiday cottages surrounded by 35 acres of rolling farmland, woods and stream with superb scenery, nature trails and wildlife. And while we cannot guarantee clear skies, our valley offers some great star gazing in the evening from the cottage deck. See our website at: holidaycottageswestwales.co.uk
Each cottage has underfloor heating on the ground floor and two comfortable loft bedrooms upstairs. All the bedrooms have south-facing dormer windows overlooking the Clettwr valley. There is one bathroom and an en suite shower room in each cottage and a modern kitchen fully equipped with fridge-freezer, cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. And to accommodate larger parties, the downstairs halls can be opened as adjoining lounges.
The two bedrooms sleep four, with one double and two single beds. An extra double sofa bed is also available, so we can accommodate larger parties of up to 10 guests in adjoining cottages. The lounges are comfortably furnished and include Freesat TV and audio-visual system. Internet access is available via our WI-FI network.
On the farm is a landmark glacial feature called Cerrig Hyllod (‘The Ugly Stones’) and visitors are welcome to follow the woodland path along the riverbank and up a fairly steep hill to the stony outcrop. Local history relates how these giant stones served in earlier times as a pulpit for a popular Welsh preacher who lived in the valley. You can see the giant stones and bluebell wood along our woodland path featured in the Walkers are Welcome short film of nature trails in the Llandysul area.
Within walking distance you can visit Rock Mills, one of the few working traditional woollen mills left in the country, and the Honorwood Flock farm and shop specialising in Shetland and Icelandic fleeces and Angora mohair. The beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay, with its clean, unspoilt beaches at Poppit Sands, Llangranog, Penbryn, Mwnt, and charming harbour towns at New Quay, Tresaith and Newport Sands are all within a reasonable driving distance from our holiday cottages. The Heritage Coast Path provides cliff walking and stunning views all along the coast of Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire with sights of rock pools, sea birds, seals and sometimes dolphins.
This area has a very high proportion of artists and crafts people which is reflected in the number of galleries and craft shops selling unique locally made arts and crafts. There are also many local producers of fine foods, with an emphasis on organic and traditional methods of production; these are often available from the makers’ premises and local markets as well as shops.
