I would highly recommended this cottage to everyone. It has spectacular views from every window, the nature reserve is on your door step (we have bikes down there everyday!) and the little touches inside the house is amazing. There are folders of things to do in the front room so if you get stuck you can have a browse through. Andrew (owner) topped up the bird feeder before we got here so we have seen so many birds and a naughty squirrel!! It is a dream, a perfect getaway for a couple or family. I am definitely going to come back here next year. It's amazing value for your money and it's fully equity with everything you need for a great break. Andrew is very informative and very passionate about the station house.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in the heart of outstanding welsh countryside but only 1 and a half miles to two village pubs. The cottage is very well equipped and cosy. The bed linen and towels are luxurious and Andrew is extremely helpful. Would defiantly recommend this property.

From the Owner

We love the area around Station House and when the opportunity to purchase Station House came about we grabbed the chance. We had walked by it many times when walking along the Ystwyth Trail and loved its location, on the edge of a National Nature Reserve overlooking the Cambrian Mountains. Equally not to far from Cardigan Bay coastline either so best of both worlds!

From the Owner

Station House is a character cottage with history which feels homely. Due to its location in is very peaceful and there are lots of birds attracted to the garden which we love watching. We find its so easy to walk or just hop on a bike and cycle along the Ystwyth Trail with a picnic to one of the bird hides or to the board walk out onto the reserve which is why we have included a couple of bikes for the use by guests!
