Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Croeso Cottage is a delightful property set amidst the beautiful private grounds of the Tyglyn Vale Parkland Estate, and an ideal retreat for those wanting to get away from it all. However if you are looking for local activities there are plenty within the local area, with children well catered for. There is a large grassed area directly in front of the property where children can safely play under a watchful eye from the cottage.
The property also benefits from free Wi Fi.
The cottage has been furnished to a very high standard, with quality and comfort assured; indeed we have many guests returning to Croeso each year.
The accommodation is tastefully furnished and comprises 2 double bedrooms sleeping 4 people.
There is also a sofa bed in the living area giving scope for additional guests.
All bed linen and towels are of a good quality and are provided for you. Electricity is also included, so there are no extras and no Booking Fees at Croeso.
The cottage has comfortable lounge seating in the conservatory which overlooks open meadow and woodland, making a lovely place to sit and relax. There is a dining area adjoining the living space which leads into the fully equipped kitchen. The family bathroom has a bath with shower. For the cooler months, fully programmable heating is installed throughout the cottage.
The bedrooms comprise one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, both with adequate wardrobe and drawer space.
All beds are drawer divans ensuring a comfortable nights' sleep.
To the front of the property there is a large decked area with patio furniture, looking out across the valley.
Here you will see Buzzards and Red Kites soaring above the grounds. Around the well maintained grounds you will find many mature specimen trees, including oak, elder and copper beech, with swathes of rhododendron and honeysuckle in Springtime.
There is pedestrian access from the Parkland Estate leading to a Country House hotel which lies just a few metres away, so no need to take the car. Here our guests make good use of the pleasant bar area and restaurant; and the food comes highly recommended!

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Ciliau Aeron lies within the Aeron Valley in Ceredigion, an area of outstanding natural beauty, sheltered from the east by the Plynlimon mountain range.
Ceredigion has much to offer with plenty of leisure pursuits and sporting activities in the area, including walking, fishing, golf, riding, cycling and watersports.
The Ceredigion coastline is designated Heritage Coast and is considered particularly scenic, in particular Mwnt, Lochtyn, Cwmtydu and Penbryn, which are cared for by the National Trust.
Tresaith also scores highly and is well worth a visit to witness the River Saith cascading over the cliff tops and onto the beach. Before leaving Tresaith pop into the Ship Inn where you can sample some fine food and take in the wonderful sea view! Rugged Llangranog is also within an easy drive.
Fans of sailing and water sports are regularly attracted to Ceredigion's welcoming beaches and harbours. Y Lanfa - Aberystwyth's marina; historic stone-walled Aberaeron; Cardigan with its broad estuary waters, and New Quay's fine sweeping bay.
Cardigan Bay is home to bottlenose dolphins, porpoises, Atlantic grey seals and a wide variety of birds, flora and fauna. Red Kites soar above, along with choughs, peregrine falcons, gannets and puffins.
Ceredigion offers a variety of walks, from gentle seaside strolls to Heritage Coast walks and rugged mountain hikes. The County features many town trails and way-marked paths including forest and countryside.
Both pony trekking and cycling are excellent ways to enjoy the spectacular scenery, with several riding stables in the area. Cycling is also well catered for with coast, countryside and mountains to explore. Off road cycling is also available, if mountain biking is your sport you will find mountain-bike trails at the Nant Yr Arian Forest Visitor Centre near Ponterwyd.
If its art and culture you seek, Ceredigion is home to the two oldest universities in Wales, it also houses the National Library of Wales.
Cardigan's culture includes a thriving visual and performing arts scene, regular arts and craft exhibitions and an annual European Film Festival at Theatr Mwldan.
Local hotels, restaurants, and country pubs in the area produce a wealth of organic and natural products for you to sample. Local menus regularly feature delicious Welsh lamb and beef, and freshly caught fish such as trout, Cardigan Bay lobsters, and sewin (a delicate sea trout very much like salmon). You will also find a wealth of healthy vegetarian alternatives at many establishments.
Ciliau Aeron nestles in the Aeron Valley and lies just 9 miles from the small University and market town of Lampeter. It makes a good starting point to discover the beautiful landscape of Cardigan Bay's breathtaking coastline.
Just a short walk from the cottage is the Secret Garden of TyGlyn Aeron, well worth a visit with picnic areas provided.
The recently restored Llanerchaeron Estate is also situated just a short distance away and makes for a great day out. The Mansion house at Llanerchaeron was built by the great architect John Nash in the 1790's and has been sympathetically restored by the National Trust over the past ten years or so.
It was thought so important a survival of the period, that it was accepted without endowment, relying on the efforts of the local community to raise a substantial proportion of restoration fund. Picnic in the grounds to the sound of a string quartet.
New Quay lies just 9 miles away, here literature lovers can follow the Dylan Thomas Trail. Wales' foremost bard lived in New Quay and wrote 'Quite Early One Morning' here. Prepare to be inspired!
You may also get a glimpse of marine wildlife in the bay, and if you are in luck you may catch sight of dolphins and porpoises playing in the waves offshore. Special 'dolphin survey' boat trips operate 2, 4 and 8 hour trips from New Quay, with hydrophones (underwater microphones) so you can also listen to the chatter of the dolphins. Further inland rabbits, foxes, badgers, buzzards, and the famous Red Kites frequent the area.

"A lovely cottage in a beautiful area."
I stayed for a week in July with my wife and young son. The cottage was absolutely spotless and beautifully presented on arrival and the complimentary tea and biscuits were a lovely touch.
The cottage is small but has everything you could possibly need over the course of your stay. There was also a very helpfully folder full of leaflets and brochures with local attractions, this was well used.
Any negatives we found were also positives. It's a short drive to the coast, it was very quiet. It lacks mobile and internet coverage, it's good to relax and get away from it all! From my son, there are not enough kids channels on the TV, let's get out and play football on the grass or explorer the secret garden!!!.
If you're happy to drive a little each day to find the next best beach/attraction, this is a fantastic base and a week was not long enough for us.
Trish, the agent we dealt with was also great. She provided loads of good information when booking and was very helpful throughout.
As a small family, we would highly recommend this cottage as a great, affordable base to explore a very beautiful part of the country.
