The Ceredigion region

The popular Victorian spa town of Aberystwyth, with its many attractions is only a five minute drive away. The mountains of North Wales provide a majestic backdrop to the beautiful sunsets over Cardigan Bay and a walk along the mile and a half long promenade could also provide you with a glimpse of the resident bottlenose dolphins. The Cambrian Mountains and unspoilt river valleys are only a short drive away or why not enjoy a trip on a narrow gauge railway instead. Activities such as horse riding, cycling, swimming, sailing, walking, golf and fishing are all available on the doorstep.


Aberystwyth is an University town with a mile long promenade and sandy beaches. The narrow gauge railway trip to Devils Bridge is very popular as is the Butterfly house in the Rheidol Valley. Sea and river fishing are popular pastimes in this area as are golf and cycling. The cycle paths and walks at Nant yr Arian forest and lake are a huge draw particularly for viewing the Red Kite population. The surrounding countryside is stunning in places and offers excellent exploration expeditions. The Rheidol riding centre is well established and caters for all ages. The Arts Centre, Cinema and local pubs provide excellent night time entertainment.

"Home fromHome"

My Wife and I have just returned from a New Year break at Derwen Cottage at Doleos near Aberystwyth. We were greeted by the owner Marylyn, who had got lights on, heating on, and had provided a lovely … More

THANK YOU so much for your extremely kind comments. It was a pleasure meeting you both and having you stay at my cottage especially as you left it immaculately clean and tidy - immensely appreciated as the Christmas over eating left me a bit sluggish!

It truly delights me to know that my visitors enjoy staying here, even in the bleak winter weather! Just immagine how glorious it is in Spring and Summer - absolutely glorious! I look forward to welcoming you back and in the meantime will strive to enhance the landscape. All the best for 2015

"Fantastic as always!"

THANK YOU so very much for taking the time to review and for such kind words. It is because of visitors such as these - friendly, warm hearted and appreciative - that we strive to provide the best we can and are eager and delighted to welcome back time after time. With further landscaping and improvements underway it's especially nice to have visitors who share our vision.

THANK YOU so much for your extremely kind words and taking the time to review. It's immensely satisfying to know that my precious visitors really love staying at our cottages. With considerable landscaping being done I hope they will return for another visit to admire the changes and hopefully the planted gardens will impress.

"Book Doleos now - convenient peaceful spotless comfort with a wonderful Welsh welcome!"

If you're looking for a homely little place to stay five minutes from Aberystwyth, don't look anywhere else – just book Doleos!!My husband and I stayed in August 2014 over our wedding week… More

Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou for such a lovely review. I am overwhelmed with pride and delight. We were so thrilled when we knew a bride and bridesmaids were due to stay and meeting the young bride and groom to be was an immense pleasure - such a charming couple. This sort of experience certainly makes all the hard work so worthwhile as we are fortunate to meet some really lovely people such as these. Reading this review makes me wish I had been able to make this my lifelong career rather than a bit late in life. It's made my day! The feeling of exhaustion as the hectic summer bookings begin to ease off has been replaced with super energy to do even better. I wish the young married couple a long and loving marriage such as my 43 years with my dear hubby. DIOLCH, diolch, diolch

Thank you very much for your generous review and for visiting from France. It is impossible to quantify the immense pleasure I gain from seeing visitors from abroad enjoying the glorious Welsh countryside and this location in particular. I was delighted to hear that you found the tranquility and peaceful surroundings to your liking and that my cottage exceeded your expectations. While valued visitors continue to enjoy staying here I will strive to ensure total satisfaction with the facilities I provide.
