About the Home
Surrounded by the spectacular Cambrian Mountains, Felin Hedd, a former threshing mill in 17 acres of private countryside, has been carefully modernized to provide comfortable accommodation for up to 10 visitors, whilst retaining its unique historic features.
With its charming terraces and upper floor balcony from which to enjoy the impressive views, Felin Hedd ('the peaceful mill') provides tranquil, luxurious, and distinctive holiday accommodation with a 5 star rating from Visit Wales.
At the heart of a region rightly famous for its history, culture and award winning cuisine, Felin Hedd, in the beautiful Teifi Valley, is close to the 'Cors Caron' nature reserve (the last remaining Bronze Age bog in Europe) and just 16 miles inland from the Wales Coast Path. The local landscape ranges from Coastal Wales (Lonely Planet's top region to visit in 2012) to the Cambrian Mountains, and with easy access to numerous outdoor pursuits, it's an unbeatable destination for families, interest groups, and anyone seeking a balance of relaxation and adventure amidst the sea, river and hills-capes of Mid Wales.
Further details indoors:
Starting our virtual tour of the mill from the entrance hall, on the left hand side we see the corridor leading to the main kitchen dining area, featuring the original iron wheel pulley system used to run the threshing mechanism in the building's days as a working mill. This area also includes a mezzanine floor, opening onto a balcony terrace, which provides a second lounge area, and overlooks the well equipped barbecue terrace. To the right hand side are situated the main sleeping and lounge facilities . Returning to the entrance hall, you will also find a fully equipped utility room with washer/drier, and a downstairs cloakroom, and located to the rear of the building is the 'Drying Room', ideal for stowing and airing wet, muddy activity gear and which also provides access, via the Plant room , to the ground floor bathroom. Opposite the mill are the former stables, which contain a games room (where you may enjoy a game of pool, darts or air hockey) and equipment store (essential for stowing activity gear).
There are 4 thoughtfully decorated double/twin bedrooms in Felin Hedd, which can sleep up to 10 persons. These are divided into two 'sleeping suites', located on the ground and first floors respectively, which, when combined with the dual lounge facilities, could easily provide sleep/relaxation areas for 2 separate families.
The ground floor master bedroom at the rear of the building is accessed via a corridor leading from the main lounge. It has a king size bed, TV/DVD, and double French doors leading onto a secluded terrace. The twin ground floor bedroom next door also has two additional 'pull out' beds, and is ideal as a children's room. The ground floor bathroom , completes this suite, and has a separate walk in shower and double ended bath. Located on the first floor to the rear of the landing area, is another charming master bedroom and to the front a second double bedroom. The first floor bathroom is next door to the master bedroom, and features a shower bath.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
The Tregaron Area
Felin Hedd is less than 5 minutes drive from the historic 'Drovers' market town of Tregaron which has many facilities including restaurants, cafés, a post office, shops and weekly local market. Ceredigion's agricultural past permeates the fabric of the town, and the old tradition of Harness racing is still a popular attraction for locals and visitors alike. Tregaron is also home to the Tregaron Kite Centre and Museum and Rhiannons Welsh Gold centre and Gallery, an important resource for Celtic history and culture, showcasing the work of many local artists and crafts people. In its charming courtyard, café Hafan is justifiably noted for its traditional Welsh teas.
Continuing along the historical theme, nearby is Europe's only surviving Bronze Age bog , teeming with rare birds, insects and plants, one of many areas of special conservation interest throughout Ceredigion. Felin Hedd is well placed to access all that the county has to offer, from award winning beaches, to the spectacular walking, cycling and mountain biking experiences - not to mention the many opportunities for anglers along any of the Teifi fishing beats (find link), estuary, lake and fishery locations throughout the area.
Golf (within 20 mins drive)
Great area for organizing holidays centered around horse riding, walking, cycling, and all water sports. Also superb activity centers/wildlife reserves in the area perfect for family days and wildlife reserves.For those interested in cultural pursuits there are many historical sites, local galleries, and an arts center to visit within the area. There are also many annual festivals and events going on all year round.
Ceredigion is blessed, not only with stunning scenery, but also with vibrant, hospitable towns and villages which are an ideal way to experience the language, tradition and history of the county. One popular town is Aberystwyth, also known as the Capital of Mid-West Wales, home not only to the National Library of Wales, open to the public all year round, but also the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, one of the largest centres in the UK, offering a huge variety of cultural experiences in its galleries, theatre, cinema, touring exhibitions, and workshops. Further inland the university town of Lampeter hosts an annual food festival, part of a longstanding tradition of food festivals held all over Ceredigion, showcasing particularly the award winning artisan food and drink produced in this part of Wales, including many products endorsed by the Mynyddoedd Cambrian Mountains initiative. The county is also fortunate that so many of its fascinating and imposing monuments are easily accessible to visitors, a good example being the old abbey at Strata Florida.
The 18th century estate at Llanerchaeron is also a fine example of Ceredigion's agricultural past and traditions preserved, and a living introduction to the history of the old Welsh Gentry.
