You can stay with us B&B or hire the venue exclusively for small group holidays, family celebrations or weddings. Book yourself some well earned time out here at Over the Rainbow, where you can completely unwind and relax just watching the stars and listening to the silence.

“This is such an ‘other world’, a place to enjoy, relax, reflect absorb and wonder at.  The house itself is worthy of a chapter of praise for its originality and sheer wow factor!  So glad this place is here!


Five well appointed, sumptuous, centrally heated rooms: single, double and twin en-suites with décor influenced by female myths and legends from around the world. All have good quality mattresses; chunky bathrobes; tea and coffee facilities with a good selection of herbal teas, fair trade coffee, and a ‘midnight snack tuckshop’. All guests also have access to a comfortable shared guest lounge with a woodburner, TV, DVD player, books and games. Free Wi-Fi available.


Served in our spacious dining room warmed with a woodburner – we provide healthy home made vegetarian catering, breakfasts and evening meals (weekends); full catering for groups and workshops. Gluten-free and Vegan diets catered for. We reduce our food miles by growing much of our own vegetables on our land and in our polytunnel, and sourcing other supplies locally where possible.

“a veggie food heaven, disguised as a restored Georgian mansion in Cardigan Bay. Stay for a weekend and be treated to a meat free fry-up in the morning, explore the local coast during the day and come back to a three-course vegetarian meal in the evening”  Buzz magazine May 2014.

What is there to do locally?

You will be perfectly placed for exploring the hidden delights of the Teifi valley or for a tranquil day of dolphin watching in Cardigan Bay. You can visit the newly restored Cardigan Castle or the National Trust Llanerchaeron estate at the seaside town of Aberaeron. Within a short drive from here you can take a gentle walk around the Welsh Wildlife Centre; Cenarth Falls; Pembrokeshire National Park; Devil’s Bridge or visit the many public gardens, farmers’ markets, art studios, galleries and antique shops in the peaceful coastal county.

Over the Rainbow is a few minutes away from several blue flag beaches including Tresaith, Mwnt, Poppit Sands, or New Quay where you can enjoy a lovely pub meal and watch for dolphins porpoises and seals. For those who want a more active holiday, the Ceredigion coastline and the Pembrokeshire Coast, now form part of the World’s first National coast path ‘tracing the shape of the nation’. We can provide you with local walking or cycling maps and a picnic for the day.

We look forward to welcoming you to this rural haven. You will not be disappointed with your visit to this hidden gem. See our video
