Penlan Cottage is a very attractive and beautifully presented example of a Welsh cottage built more than a century ago. The beams and exposed stonework exude character, and the multi-fuel burner adds that cosy touch for snuggling up in the delightful spacious living and dining room, with a sofa bed for two additional people if required. The country feel continues in the kitchen which has an ornamental range cooker, a Belfast sink and plenty of space to prepare meals. Leading off the kitchen is a family bathroom with toilet, basin, bath and overhead shower. The first floor bedrooms have been thoughtfully decorated; the kingsize room is elegant in white and the charming twin room has a painted stone wall and a nautical feel – a nod to the Cardigan Bay coast which is just 12 miles away! Outside there is a neat gravelled courtyard and decked area with table and chairs, perfect for dining al fresco or enjoying a morning coffee. If you are bringing bicycles with you, there is side access to bring them into the courtyard and pop them undercover by the log store. There are so many cycling routes around here, it’s definitely worth bringing them!
The university town of Lampeter is just a short drive away and has a selection of independent shops, coffee shops and tea rooms. There is a regular market and a museum dedicated to craft of Welsh quilts. Drive on further to find the National Trust Dolaucothi Gold Mines - well worth a visit for an underground tour and the opportunity to pan for gold! Do not miss the special coastline of this spectacular part of West Wales. There are plenty of lovely sandy beaches, picturesque coastal towns and villages dotted along it. The colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron is a must, as is the quaint town of New Quay, where you can take a boat trip or spot dolphins from the harbour wall on an almost daily basis. Walkers will definitely be impressed by 65 miles of coastal path, plenty for even the most ardent of ramblers! The attractions of Pembrokeshire are also within easy reach for a day trip, but whether you want to visit tiny seaside villages, explore ancient castles, spot exciting wildlife, wander unspoilt countryside or just enjoy some fine locally produced food and drink, there is a holiday waiting for you to enjoy at Penlan Cottage. Beach 12½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 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!
