Old Church - 518
Converted Chapel | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
What an amazing place!
The former St Cwnlle's church has just been converted with great sensitivity, imagination and flair retaining many original features and creating new out of old. As well as combining every modern comfort, it is also ecologically sound.
The historic University town of Lampeter is about 8 miles away and has a good selection of shops and eateries. Aberaeron, a very colourful Georgian seaside town, is also about 8 miles away and makes a good day trip as do Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge.
If you ever wanted a really special place to stay this is it!

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Lampeter sits in the countryside in the upper Teifi Valley and is the oldest university town in Wales, The bustling market town is a hive of activity and in the 18th century was an important gathering place for the Drovers. These people gathered huge herds of livestock to be walked all the way to the markets of southeast England. the Drovers established some of Wales oldest banking institutions- all of which have now been assimilated into Uk banks- but te sign of the rearing horse maintained by Lloyds remains to remind present generations of these merchants long ago as the horse is, indeed, a Welsh mountain pony.
The Romans once mined for gold near Lampeter at Pumpsaint. The site of the old goldmine is now managed by the National Trust.
From spectacular coastal walks along the Ceredigion Coastal Path affording glimpses of dolphins, seals, porpoise and marine birds; through the lush green river valleys of the Teifi, Aeron, Ystwyth and Rheidol; to the heathered uplands and forests of the Cambrian Mountains where red kites and buzzards soar majestically above - the panoply of walking opportunities on offer is hard to better.
Ceredigion offers a competitive selection of quality golf courses ranging from meadow and parkland greens to coastal links with spectacular scenery Mountain biking enthusiasts make a bee-line for the Nant Yr Arian Forest Centre which offers some of the most interesting and challenging routes in Wales. Meanwhile, road biking devotees can enjoy a plethora of quiet road networks centred on Ceredigion's three Wales Cycle Break Centres

"Wonderful home finished to an exceptionally high standard"
A lovely home finished to a high standard, spacious, well equip and in a lovely quiet location (Although not too far from some wonderful towns and villages) as well as fantastic views.
We had a fantastic week (helped slightly by some brilliant weather)
A must is a visit to New Quay, We were unlucky by not seeing any dolphins but we had a great boat trip (Sea Mor boat trips) where we got to stroke a Spider crab, Dog fish, Bull Shark, Edible crabs, hermit crabs, star fish and lobsters, we also saw a seal, which made up for missing the dolphins. The Reptile house is small but we got to hold a snake!!!!, the Bee Farm is incredibly intersting (if not small) but worth the trip.
Aberaeron is also a great visit for some crab fishing and a lovely meal at the hive restaurant.
All in all a great holiday, made better by the fantastic house we got to go back to every day, relaxing in the wonderful sitting room and / or the warm conservatory and on the last couple of days bbq in the very large garden.
Highly recommend, before the owners take it away and keep it all for themselves.
