Bwthyn Tegfan sits in a small sleepy Welsh village in the Teifi Valley. The restored semi detached cottage is about 200 years old, built as an estate worker's cottage, retaining much of the original features. The cottage is in a quiet location but within a mile or so of a local pub, post office and village store.
The restored cottage comfortably sleeps three guests, one double and one single, in two bedrooms. Also welcome one small dog (no extra charge). Newly installed night storage heating in all rooms, with character original stone walls and and open beams.
There is a cosy sofa and also a wood burner in the the living room, with TV/DVD. A basket of logs and a bucket of coal is provided.
The bathroom has a corner bath with electric shower over, loo, hand basin and shaver point. Towels are provided.
The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and automatic washing machine. Tea towels are provided.
There is a separate dining room and from here stairs to the first floor, which opens to the single bedroom area.
The single bedroom is galleried (stair gate provided for younger visitors). A door leads to the double bedroom. Both bedrooms have open beams with restricted headroom. Bed linen is provided.
The cottage is accessed by a narrow lane, private off road parking and a woodland path leads to the front door. There is approximately half an acre of gardens on different levels. There is a decking area with table and chairs, which overlooks a stream, also further seating, swing seat and patio area.
I have a non smoking policy, however you are welcome to smoke outside the cottage.
Within the cottage there are a number of steps on the first floor and then there are about six woodland steps from the parking area to the front door, with a slightly uneven slate path, also steps to the different garden levels.
There is plenty to do in the Teifi Valley and Cardigan Bay area, and great places to eat out. Dolphins and seals can be seen from the coastal path. Buzzards and red kites can be seen and heard from the cottage in the surrounding woodland.
