Local Area and Facilities

Want a relaxing holiday surrounded by beautiful countryside but only two miles from the historic market town of Newcastle Emlyn and only 10 miles from the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast and its wide beaches? Visit picturesque Cenarth, just a mile away, with its famous river falls. Renowned for its coracles, you can fish for local trout or walk by the river. Lunch or dine in the local inns or visit the local smithy.

Like to paintball, surf, swim canoe or pony trek, or is walking the hills, visiting ancient castles more your pleasure?

Quaint villages with real ale pubs, cafes where local art work adorns the walls and the food is good.

Like to dabble with a paintbrush? Talk painting with the owner who is a student of fine art at the local university. Visit the local artist's galleries and potteries.

For children's entertainment try the local theatre and cinema, or visit Oakwood theme park or Folly Farm for younger ones, and the young at heart.

Have an interest in wildlife? Look out for foxes, badgers and buzzards that circle the valley below. Wildlife and wildflowers abound. Feed the ducks in Cenarth and look out for the otters in the river.

Catering from two to five people, the cottage offers comfortable accommodation set in peaceful surrounding countryside. Bedding and towels are provided. Please bring your own beach towels. Electric fire and pre-timed central heating.

Sorry no pets.
