Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated in a lovely setting in the beautiful Aeron Valley, the well tended grounds at Tyglyn Vale are delightful, and the cottage is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, in a charming parkland setting.
Tawelfan is ideally situated on a small private country Estate and is well placed for exploring Ceredigion and the Heritage Coastline of Cardigan Bay. Lying just 4 miles from the Georgian coastal town of Aberaeron, and 8 miles from New Quay, (home of the bottlenose dolphins), this cottage makes a splendid base.
Beautifully furnished, the cottage has two bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin, and sleeps 4 people. The kitchen is fully fitted with fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher, and the usual small appliances. The spacious bathroom has bath with shower over and heated towel rail. Fully programmable heating and electricity are provided free of charge. Bed linen and towels are also provided, and the property now benefits from free Wi Fi..
Real wooden flooring throughout gives this property a contemporary feel, with the added benefit of a conservatory and a large decked area to the front of the cottage where you can sit and relax - an ideal vantage point for watching the Red Kites and buzzards soaring above the valley.
There is pedestrian access from the Estate leading to a Country House Hotel just a short stroll away.
Here guests can sit and have a drink in the bar area and take advantage of the superb restaurant; the food comes highly recommended!

About this location
The Ceredigion 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 whilst taking 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 4 miles from the Georgian coastal town of Aberaeron, and 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.
