Troedyrhiw - Pontrhydfendigaid
Sitting on the western edge of the Cambrian Mountains, Troedyrhiw is the quintessential Welsh country cottage and an ideal base for exploring the stunning countryside of West Wales, as well as the glorious beaches of Cardigan Bay. Troedyrhiw means foot of the hill, and if guests climb to the top of that hill, they will find themselves at Teifi Pools, the source of the River Teifi, and rewarded with stunning views to all sides. Troedyrhiw is a perfect hideaway for those seeking to escape everyday city life and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside, its also a paradise for ramblers and anglers.
Sleeps up to 5
This charming holiday cottage sleeps up to five guests, in three bedrooms. There are two double rooms and one single room, all with smart wooden beds and bedroom furniture. All bed linen and towels are provided.
Downstairs, there is a spacious and modern kitchen, with a small breakfast bar. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to enjoy a relaxing self-catering holiday. There is also a separate dining room, as well as a cosy oak-floored sitting room with a wood burner. Logs are available at no extra charge. Free wifi is available throughout the property.
Outside, there is a picnic area with table and chairs, so guests can relax and enjoy meals outside in the warm weather, if required.
The village of Pontrhydfendigaid is just a short distance away, with the market town of Tregaron to the south and Devils Bridge to the north. Only a short distance from Troedyrhiw are the ruins of Strata Florida Abbey, which are well worth a visit for their sense of tranquility and a glimpse into what life might have been like for the Cistercian monks who once lived and worked there.
Devils Bridge Falls is a must-see destination, and there is a walk that takes in these stunning waterfalls and pools, as well as the Three Bridges that span the Rheidol Gorge. Visitors can even learn the legend behind the oldest bridge, and how the falls got their name.
West Wales has some stunning walking trails to explore, with both mountain hikes and coastal paths to enjoy. On a clear day, walkers who reach the top of Pumlumon Fawr will be rewarded with views as far as Snowdonia to the north, and the Brecon Beacons to the east. More gentle walks may take in forest paths and old drovers paths, with stunning countryside to discover on every route. Head to the coast to walk a stretch of the Ceredigion Coast Path, with incredible views out across Cardigan Bay, and the chance to spot seals, porpoises and dolphins, all common off this coast.
The seaside town of Aberystwyth is full of Victorian charm, and an ice-cream on the promenade is recommended, and the incredible starling murmurations that take place here are not to be missed. Further along the coast, boat trips are available from New Quay, heading out into the bay in search of those friendly dolphins and seals, as well as awesome marine birds.
There are plenty of great places to eat in the area, including The Black Lion in Pontrhydfendigaid, Y Talbot in Tregaron and Harbourmaster, in Aberaeron. Pysgoty, in Aberystwyth, is an award-winning fish restaurant, with an outdoor dining terrace with views of the incredible sunsets over Cardigan Bay.
From active holidays in the great outdoors to relaxing get away from it all breaks, this part of Wales has so much to offer, and Troedyrhiw makes a comfortable and relaxing base, from which to enjoy it all.
