Description


These two beautiful, adjoining holiday properties have been lovingly restored from historic farm buildings. Eithinog meaning gorse, (ref OW5), has been converted from a cow and calf shed, and Helygen meaning willow, (ref OW4), converted from the adjoining stables, granary and hayloft. They lie in the peaceful, rural location at the edge of the Cambrians, amongst 350 acres of farmland and with wonderful views, and even a panoramic view of the coastline from the hillside. Just a mile away is Talybont village with local amenities, including well-known pubs and restaurant. At the nearby seaside resort of Aberystwyth, you can walk the promenade, take the cliff railway to the biggest Camera Obscura in the world, or catch the steam train to Devil’s Bridge and Waterfalls. Nature lovers will appreciate the abundance of walking available, from the stunning Ynyslas Nature Reserve and sand dunes to the Bwlch Nant Yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre. There is also a visitor centre where you can watch majestic red kites feeding over the nearby lake.

Cardigan Bay is home to bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic grey seals. A dolphin survey boat trip will give you the opportunity to learn from expert volunteers about the work that goes into maintaining this Special Area of Conservation.


The Dyfi Valley and Aberystwyth area is indeed a special place, in terms of the landscape, wildlife, the people and culture, and the area’s history and heritage. UNESCO gave the whole area Biosphere status in 2009, the purpose of which is to help in the process of protecting the environment that makes the area distinctive. The Cambrian Mountains offer an ideal destination for mountain bikers who enjoy a wild and rugged experience. There are biking trails, walking trails and a variety of other attractions in the area.


The owners of Eithinog and Helygen have created two extremely well-appointed and comfortable holiday homes and you are assured of a warm Welsh welcome. They have been appointed Ambassadors to the Cambrian Mountains, an initiative set up by HRH the Prince of Wales to recognise high quality tourism establishments that contribute to the sustainability of the region. They have also received the prestigious certificate from the World Hosts programme in the principles of customer service. As well as this they have won an award from Aberystwyth University for ’The Best Aber Welcome’ in recognition of their fantastic hospitality. You are assured a warm welcome or "Croeso Cynnes" as they say in Wales. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

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!
