Description

Nestled in an almost secret corner of the rolling Welsh countryside, this delightful holiday cottage has been lovingly converted from the original milking parlour by the owners who live next door. Retaining the wooden beams and using reclaimed wooden flooring are special features, with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture, the cottage balances comfort and character perfectly.

Here you’re in an excellent central location for exploring west Wales. An easy 30-minute drive will bring you to the wonderful beaches and coastline of Cardigan Bay with craggy cliffs interspersed with wide estuaries and the coastal path! Cardigan Bay enjoys a rich marine environment throughout the year with bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoise, Atlantic grey seals and a variety of birdlife. You will not be disappointed with a visit to the pretty seaside town of New Quay where you can look out for dolphins, or take one of the regular boat trips which run most of the year, subject to sea conditions. It’s also a great place for rock pooling, surfing, sailing or just enjoying the relaxed seaside vibe of the town. Visit Ceredigion’s largest town, Aberystwyth, a lively university town and seaside resort; Cardigan, the former county town also boasts a castle, several arts venues and interesting independent shopping. Discover the picturesque Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, the Teifi Valley or the towns of Newcastle Emlyn, Llandysul and Lampeter. Even in the smallest of rural hamlets, Ceredigion offers a warm welcome and a host of attractions and history. Venture south to Carmarthen and along Dylan Thomas country, or to Brechfa which is good for mountain biking. For the adventurous, try your hand at canoeing at Llandysul Paddlers Canoe Club. Pop in to the nearby National Wool Museum, The Museum of Childhood or the Museum of Power. Befitting of a county that dates back over 1600 years, every town has a tale to tell and each village a mystery to discover. When you return to The Milking Parlour at the end of a busy day exploring the area, it will be time to unwind and enjoy the peaceful rural setting.
Hampshire Down sheep are grazing in the owner’s field from spring to autumn, red kites and buzzards often soar overhead, and in the summer, swallows return to breed. Stroll around the couple of acres of woodland and ponds or why not pour a glass of wine, sit on the patio and enjoy star gazing? Light pollution is at a minimum here and the clear night skies are amazing with a chance to see the Milky Way. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
