Y Bwthyn (The Cottage) is a lovely traditional Welsh stone cottage situated within the village of Talgarreg, just 15 minutes’ drive from the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline. On the outside of this semi-detached cottage, a plaque commemorates the fact that renowned Welsh preacher and poet Dewi Emrys once lived here. Dewi Emrys won the very coveted National Eisteddfod ’Chair’ no less than four times for his work. The property is a Visit Wales 4* graded property (graded November 2019).
The current owners of the cottage have worked tirelessly to create a delightful holiday home, which has been thoughtfully finished to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for everyone who stays here. The interior is extremely cosy, with original features such as exposed stonework and beams, and you will be warm and cosy as you relax by the multi-fuel burner. The modern and bright kitchen/dining room is very well-equipped and includes a dishwasher and a coffee pod machine. Upstairs there are two characterful bedrooms, a double and a twin room for children with a DVD player, bed guard and night light, each with a TV. The lovely enclosed garden looks out onto fields beyond and the raised patio is the ideal spot to enjoy the views with a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Although, with the welcoming village pub right opposite you will probably want to spend some time there too!
If you can drag yourself away from Y Bwthyn, you must explore the surrounding area. The pretty seaside town of New Quay, with its houses clinging to the rocks, is charming. There are a selection of little shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, and also the Marine Wildlife Centre. You can take a boat trip to spot dolphins and seals, and from the sea you can really get a sense of how beautiful this coastline is. If sailing isn’t for you, why not just sit by the harbour with fish and chips or an ice cream, and enjoy watching the boats bobbing about? There are plenty of lovely sandy beaches to explore in the area, New Quay has no less than four, and many are dog friendly all year round if you are bringing your family dog on holiday with you. Nearby, lovely Llangrannog and Tresaith have pubs and restaurants overlooking the beach, so whatever the weather you can enjoy a meal and soak up the views.
The county town of Cardigan and the university town of Aberystwyth are definitely worth a visit, both with castles and the latter with a pier, promenade and electric cliff railway. Make sure you visit the colourful Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron too. West Wales is a haven for walkers, cyclists and those who enjoy any kind of outdoor pursuit. The local Parkrun is just a short drive away at the National Trust owned Llanerchaeron, as is the internationally known Llandysul Paddlers Canoe Centre and the West Wales Karting Centre. If you are after serious mountain biking, you can take to the muddy tracks at Nant-yr-Arian, Aberystwyth or the Brechfa Forest. Come and stay at Y Bwthyn and be sure of a ’Croeso Cynnes’, or a warm Welsh welcome; you won’t be disappointed. Beach 7 miles. Shop 4½ miles, pub serving food 10 yards.
