Situated in a truly magnificent location on the banks of the glistening River Teifi within mature grounds and on a 100-acre working farm, this traditional Welsh barn conversion, one of a pair, has been beautifully restored to its former glory to provide a perfect retreat whatever the time of year. Ceredigion, home to the dramatic Heritage coastline with wild inlet bays, golden beaches and tranquil fishing villages, provides the perfect destination in which to unwind and relax or explore. The stunning beaches of Tresaith, Penbryn, Llangrannog and Mwnt are just a few worthy of a visit and several beaches are dog friendly all year round. The holiday property itself is adjacent to owners 18th-century farmhouse, and has been lovingly renovated with stylish décor and furnishings throughout. Lying beneath the living room’s beamed ceiling, the wood-burning stove, thick stone walls and a host of comfortable furnishings provide the perfect ingredients for cosy night in. The quirky galleried bedroom is ideal for a lazy morning’s rest, as is the lawned garden to the rear where the flowing river can be heard. Guests are invited to stroll admist the owner’s extensive grounds, which are home to resident horses, goats and lambs during the spring, or for the more adventurous, head down to the fast flowing waters of the river and enjoy the peace and tranquillity it has to offer, which makes it perfect for water-based activities such as kayaking, canoeing or salmon fishing. The property is conveniently located close to the iconic Pembrokeshire National Park, and guests can ramble the majestic Preseli Hills and discover picturesque walks and ancient monuments, including the Bronze Age burial chamber of Pentre Ifan Dolmen, which stands beautifully in rugged terrain. The nearby market towns of Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn and Carmarthen are all rich in Welsh culture and offer a selection of traditional pubs, boutique and antique gift shops, along with some tasteful restaurants waiting to be explored. Ramble the Heritage Coastal Path and enjoy spectacular views across Cardigan Bay which is home to resident bottle dolphins, harbour porpoises, grey seals and a variety of rare sea birds. The popular coastal resort of New Quay is just a stone’s throw away which features a good selection of cafés, pubs and restaurants which cling to the sides of the hills rising above the crystal blue waters of the bay. The charming regency town of Aberaeron, with its multi coloured houses and attractive harbour, is well worth a visit, as is the university town of Aberystwyth, with its wide range of shops, National Library of Wales and free museum. A trip on the picturesque Rheidol Valley steam railway can be taken from here to Devils Bridge in the nearby scenic Cambrian Mountains. Beach 3 miles. 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!
