About Martin Samuel

The owners Martin and Emma Samuel live in Llanilar, near Aberystwyth. As property investors rent both long term and short term rental accommodation. Emma used to live in Ponterwyd and her family still reside in the village. We enjoy using the cottages with our Children to relax and enjoy the beautiful Views. We pride ourselves by renting quality properties.

Martin Samuel purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Martin Samuel chose Ceredigion

Bought as a derelict cottage, Dolcarne was purchased as a run down shell which was totally renovated to current building regulations. Making it a modernized high quality finished property with state of the art insulation and hand crafted windows, doors and A frames, but keeping the traditional features of a 250 year old grade 2 listed Welsh Cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

You won't find many cottages like these in Wales, bought back to a high standard with the traditional feel of a 18th century cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at Dinas Cottage. Brilliant for wildlife (saw a polecat in the garden) and excellent location.



Amazing cottages and lovely views, really relaxing stay.

This place was a great find and had everything we wanted for a short stay. The views were amazing and the Jacuzzi was a suprisingly enjoyable extra. Thanks so much, wish we were there longer!

2 - 7 Aug 2016 - Rheidol Cottage at Dolcarne Holdiay Cottages Ponterwyd Aberystwyth

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant location for a much needed relaxing family holiday, cottage was beautiful, comfortable and very well equipped, decor completely to my taste :) Would totally recommend a visit especially the use of the hot tub, what could be better than to sit in the hot tub looking out onto such peaceful beautiful surroundings - sheer bliss! Can't wait to return at some point in the near future, looking forward to a hot tub in the snow!! Loved waking up to the sight and sound of sheep and cows. Know the area well, often visiting and is great for hill walking, beaches, wildlife, good food (would recommend yfarmers) and more….

The cottage was even better than the discription.

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing stay, the cottage was very modern but kept its originality the setting was second to non we had views all around right on the edge of the mountains with just the sound of the stream, bleating sheep and singing birds. Needless to say we would love to go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. The hot tub was a bonus.

Fabulous Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a good holiday, Rheidol Cottage is fabulous. Modern, clean and well equipped, with fantastic views. Martin, the owner is friendly and very helpful. We wished that we had booked for two weeks because there is so much to see and do. The Ceredigion area in Wales is a hidden gem.
