Dildre, named after an ancesteral family farm in the area is a delightful two king size bedroom holiday property, all on one level, attached to the owner’s home. Situated within their working sheep farm in a rural location, Dildre has been thoughtfully furnished to give holidaymakers a very comfortable stay. The kitchen/dining room which also has a comfy sofa to enjoy the views, has direct access through the French doors on to a secluded patio, which is a tranquil place to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening drink. There you will find seating for four, a table and the hot tub. The cosy separate living room also provides direct access to another seating area at the front of the property, overlooking the farm to the countryside and hills beyond. The cottage has two king size double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and a second shower room, making it perfect for couples or friends holidaying together. The land is encircled by a footpath and bridleway of approximately 2 miles. If you wish to order your supermarket groceries to be delivered on the day you arrive the owners will take delivery and put all your shopping away for you in advance of your arrival so that your wine is chilling in the fridge!

Dildre is ideally situated for exploring this diverse region of West Wales, and is perfect for a weekend break or a longer stay with award winning beaches (many pet-friendly year round), sandy coves, sea cliffs, caves and wonderful wildlife, amazing sunsets and starry skies. Less than 10 miles away, you can discover the attractive Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron with its colourful houses and an array of independent shops and lots of cafés, restaurants and pubs. There are many events and festivals held annually within the town, including a mackerel festival, the festival of Welsh ponies and cobs, beer and cider festival and a rugby sevens event. The National Trust Georgian country estate of Llanerchaeron, just 2½ miles south east of Aberaeron, can be reached from the town along a wide level pedestrian pathway, ideal for cyclists, pushchairs or wheelchairs.

Just a bit further down the coast, you will find the seaside town of New Quay, where the houses cling to the rocks, and the long harbour wall is the perfect place to enjoy fish and chips whilst you try to spot the regular visitors of bottlenose dolphins or just watch the boats bobbing. Boat trips are available in season and offer a spectacular view of the coastline, and the bay is home to an amazing variety of wildlife, both above and under the waves. A 20-minute drive towards the Cambrian Mountains will bring you the historic market town of Tregaron, centre for ‘Trotian’ - horse trotting and carriage racing. The annual summer event attracts competitors from all over the UK and Ireland. It is also the home of the Welsh Gold Centre selling Celtic inspired designs. Just outside the town, you can discover the Cors Caron Nature Reserve covering 2,000 acres.

Don’t forget to visit the seaside town of Aberystwyth whilst you are here and enjoy a ride on the Vale of Rheidol steam train to Devil’s bridge and waterfalls, or take the electric cliff railway to the summit of Constitution Hill to see the panoramic view of the coastline. You are assured of a Croeso Cynnes or warm Welsh welcome when you come to stay at Dildre. Beach 9½ miles. Shop, pub and resturant 4 miles.

About the local area

One of the most rural counties in Wales, overlooking Cardigan Bay, Ceredigion offers unspoilt countryside and uncrowded beaches. Much of the coastline is designated as a `heritage coast', and is one of Britain's most diverse areas for marine wildlife.

The coast is home to a resident pod of some 130 bottlenose dolphins as well as porpoises and grey seals. Eco-friendly boat trips to fully experience the coastline and its wildlife run frequently in the summer months from New Quay and Aberaeron. Hidden coves and sandy beaches also allow you to escape from the crowds.

Inland the countryside is a green vastness of hills and valleys dotted with small villages and market towns. There are several nature reserves, home to rare species of flora and fauna. Explore these on one of the many walking trails across the county and for the more adventurous; there is an awesome 35 km mountain biking trail in Nant Bwlch yr Arian high in the Cambrian Mountains. And afterwards, treat yourself to an award wining honey ice cream from Aberaeron!
