About the property

Ideal for exploring Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire

Comfy double bed on crogloft sleeping platform + sofa bed for additional guests.

Our lovely little cottage was formerly a small milking parlour and dairy and now welcomes visitors to this beautiful part of the Teifi Valley in West Wales. In a quiet rural location along a private track it's the perfect place to explore the area on foot, bike or car. The cottage is perfect for a couple or single guest and has a traditional 'croglofft' sleeping platform with double bed, accessed by an original wooden ladder (there's a sofa bed for additional guests). It has been lovingly converted using traditional stone, slate and limewash combined with modern eco friendly natural materials plus triple glazing, a log stove and luxurious log fired underfloor heating. Close to the market town of Newcastle Emlyn with walks by the castle and river Teifi, guests are in easy reach of Llandysul with it's Norman Church, Teifi Harp makers and Llandysul Paddlers Canoe Centre. From the cottage a lovely walk along leafy lanes and fields will take you up to Pencastell motte and bailey. The surrounding hedgerows are filled with wildflowers.

The sofa bed can accommodate two extra guests for a small additional charge. Please enquire regarding rates for children

Well behaved dogs are welcome. There is a small additional charge of £10.

Beautiful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage. It's tastefully converted and decorated with lots of delightful features. It's cosy and comfortable. Ideal for a romantic break. Gill clearly has a flair for making cottages really stunning. It's also very clean.

It's ideally situated for exploring Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire as we did. Gill has left books for ideas and to give a feel of the culture and history of the area.

My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! Thanks Gill and Roger.

Cosy and peaceful rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Crogloft Cottage. It's a beautiful space, very comfortable and cosy. A great base for exploring the beautiful Welsh countryside and the gorgeous Cardigan coast. Loads of lovely beaches and pubs nearby!

Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning.
