About Susie Fugle

My Grandmother moved into the house in 1927, my father was born here and we enjoyed many family holidays here. It was a magical place to visit as a child, cooking in the inglenook fireplace, the cold water tap outside the back door (still there) and loo at the bottom of the garden (not there). Very different to city life. I remember we hired a black and white tv to watch the 1966 World Cup Final. Good investment it turned out!

The surrounding beaches and countryside are beautiful and there is as much to do.

Within walking or cycling distance from the house is The Welsh Wildlife Centre within the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve, Cilgerran Castle, Cardigan Castle and Theatre Mwldan for movies and live performances.

Also a short walk uptown for shops, cafes and restaurants.

Up the road in St Dogmaels on Tuesdays is the

BBC Food & Farming Award 2016 Winners:

St Dogmaels Local Producers Market.

Also close by Glebelands Market Garden for home grown fresh produce.

A short drive takes you to the Teifi Estuary and beaches Poppit Sands, Mwnt, Penbryn, Tresaith, Llangranogg, Aberporth & Newport Sands.

Also walking along the Ceredigion & Pembrokeshire Coastal Paths

and an 18 hole golf course in Gwbert.

You can of course, just take it easy and enjoy the large back garden and look out at the River Teifi and watch the boats, canoes and birds go by.

Quiet hideaway close to lovely coastline

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults plus infant. Lots of space for a family holiday, all the rooms were comfortable with contemporary decoration. Very little noise from the town yet shops were just 2 minutes walk away. Behind the house is an enclosed garden (toddler safe) and beyond that a small car park and green space by the river...lovely for a stroll to see ducks, waders and grebe. Cut through church and cross river to reach nature reserve with waders, kingfishers and much more. We had a restful time in and around the house, and had easy access to Mwnt, Poppit and Newport beaches. A wonderful break.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a wonderful break and enjoyed the nature reserve. I'd like to add there is an excellent Wildlife Centre there also, with ongoing events for adults and children and a very good cafe serving meals and light lunches all reasonably priced. You can also hire a canoe and enjoy the gorge and wildlife from the river.
