Pendre is a delightful old terraced cottage set in a quiet backwater of the charming town of Tregaron, which lies at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains. Both the living room and dining room have a wood burner, so you can relax in either room and enjoy the cosy glow of a real fire. There’s an added bonus of an enclosed, lawned garden featuring a large hot tub, and since the area is famous for its dark skies, you can unwind there and look up at the stars.
Tregaron is a friendly town with small shops, cafés and pubs, including an award-winning inn and restaurant, and was voted number two for 2017 in the Guardian, in the top ten of autumn breaks in small UK towns and cities, voted for by nature writers. The famous Rhiannon Welsh Gold Centre is just the place to buy a gift or visit the art gallery. Steeped in history, the town was once a strategic point for gathering livestock for the drovers to take their animals across the mountains along the ancient track to the markets and ports as far away as Kent. Pendre is situated on the road that leads directly to the stunning Abergwesyn mountain pass, where you can drive the undulating road through dense conifer forests to miles of wide, desolate valleys, rivers and lakes. The scenery is stunning; be sure to visit Llyn Brianne and see the dam.
Every year Tregaron plays host to trotting races and attracts thousands of visitors to these exciting harness races. Just outside the town you will find the beautiful Cors Caron National Nature Reserve: a vast, untamed mix of raised bog, reedbed, wet grassland, ponds, streams and patches of woodland. There are fully accessible boardwalks, and an observation building that will allow you to enjoy the peaceful views of the landscape and wildlife. From here you can also access a section of the Ystwyth Trail, a national cycle route. The whole area is a haven for walkers and cyclists, but you should also venture to the wonderful coastline of Ceredigion where miles of award-winning beaches await. Visit the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, or the university town of Aberystwyth and take a walk on the promenade, or catch the electric cliff railway to Constitution Hill. Have a magical day out on the narrow gauge railway which runs from Aberystwyth to the famous Devil’s Bridge and Rheidol Falls. Ceredigion is perfect for a weekend break or a longer stay, and this distinctive Welsh region with a thriving cultural identity will not disappoint. Fishing is available nearby. Come and stay at Pendre and see for yourself. Shop, pub and restaurant 175 yards.
