Woodpecker Rest is nestled on the edge of the quaint hamlet of Llechryd surrounded by woodland and set within the owners’ beautiful grounds with a walled garden, well-manicured lawns and an ornamental pond. This semi-detached cottage is aptly named after the family of woodpeckers that frequent the garden. The property offers a modern, contemporary, galley-style kitchen complete with beams, which leads through to the bright and airy open-plan living/dining room. The first floor master bedroom has been lovingly furnished complete with en-suite facilities. On a morning, enjoy a freshly brewed coffee in the spacious sun room or a G&T on an evening to watch the birds.

A short walk away and you can be enjoying some home cooked food and locally brewed ales from one of the eateries in Llechryd, and for that special celebratory meal try the restaurant on the edge of the River Teifi which offers some fantastic fine dining. Travelling 5 minutes north and you can discover the historic market town of Cardigan with its castle dating back to the late 11th century, with commanding views along the river and out towards the Cardigan Bay. Poppit Sands is just around the corner complete with a golden sandy beach, perfect for building sandcastles, kayaking or surfing. A little further along the coastline is Newport Sands and Mwnt Beach, which really are worth the visit and spectacular to visit all year round.

Locally, a visit to Cenarth Falls really is not to be missed and if timed well, you can see the salmon leaping up the falls which really is a fantastic sight. Nearby is the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran, which runs along the banks of the River Teifi made famous for coracle fishing. A great day out for all is the walled town of Tenby, complete with beach, cobbled streets and a host of eateries and craft shops. Folly Farm Zoo and Oakwood theme park are all within a 45-minute drive. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

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!
