Originally a 19th-century coach house, this lovely detached property has been lovingly converted to give really spacious accommodation for four people. The large entrance hallway leads to a bright conservatory with seating and a dining table, which overlooks the pretty patio to the front of the house. The very spacious living room has a full height, exposed A frame and beams, and a feature galleried sitting area on the first floor that overlooks the living room. There are comfortable leather chairs and a wood burner - imagine curling up with a good book and a glass of wine, bliss! The kitchen has a little breakfast table for your morning coffee and croissant. There is a ground floor double bedroom and a very smart shower room with a large walk-in shower. Upstairs, the second bedroom has a kingsize bed, so is ideal for two couples holidaying together. Rhydyfran Coach House sits within 8 acres of the owner’s land and they live adjacent. They are happy for you to take full advantage of the grounds which include a woodland walk and a huge meadow and paddock. It is worth the walk to get to the paddock where you will find chairs to sit on and enjoy the stunning view over the Ceredigion countryside.

Ten minutes away, the thriving historic market and university town of Lampeter offers a range of independent shops, a couple of supermarkets and a selection of cafés, a far cry from when it was once an important place for the 18th century drovers to gather their livestock. Although you are well situated for travelling to other areas of Wales including Snowdonia, Pembrokeshire and the Brecon Beacons, you will not be short of places to explore within beautiful Ceredigion and West Wales.

Less than 10 miles away is stunning Cardigan Bay, and you must not miss a visit to the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, the pretty seaside resort of New Quay and Aberystwyth, with its pier, promenade and the steam train taking you to Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls. There are 60 miles of coastal path and plenty of lovely beaches and coves to explore. Visit the National Trust sites of the Dolaucothi Gold Mines and take an underground tour of Llanerchaeron, an 18th-century estate and John Nash designed mansion house.

Venture towards the Cambrian Mountains and discover the market town of Tregaron and the Cors Caron Nature Reserve and wetland, with a lovely accessible boardwalk to enjoy the landscape and wildlife. Cyclists can access a section of the Ystwyth Trail. The wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains are one of the few remote areas left in Britain and have some of the most scenic routes you will ever see. You will love this area and love staying at Rhydyfran Coach House. Beach 9½ 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!
