Description

Peaceful touring base.

A semi-detached, deceptively spacious, single-storey holiday accommodation located in an area with similar privately owned properties. Situated close to the River Aeron and in a central location for touring Cardigan Bay and the western coastline. Decorated to a good standard, with all modern facilities, it offers a country retreat for a small family or a couple. Enjoy the scenery of the Cardigan Coast and beautiful beaches in the area, where dolphins and porpoises are often spotted.

The town of Aberaeron is less than 10 minutes away with shops. New Quay, Aberporth, Aberystwyth and Llangrannog are within easy driving. A short drive inland leads to Lampeter and Tregaron, where the Welsh language is mostly used by locals. Shops 2 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

The Wales region

Much of our coastline is designated Heritage Coast, with Mwnt, Lochtyn, Cwmtydu and Penbryn cared for by the National Trust. Some of Britain's rarest birds and marine species are found here, along with the now famous bottlenose dolphins. Grey seals and porpoise are often spotted too.

To explore inland, a narrow gauge steam railway from Aberystwyth climbs through the beautiful valley of Cwm Rheidol, where once silver and lead were extracted, to Devil's Bridge, its spectacular waterfalls and woodland gorge.
Further south, at Tregaron, on the edge of the Cambrian Mountains, you can follow the old railway walk and explore Tregaron Bog, one of the few remaining examples of a raised peat bog in Britain. For a Celtic souvenir, visit Rhiannon who specialises in making Welsh gold jewellery.

During your visit, you will frequently spot the Red Kite with its hallmark forked tail flying overhead, and the Red Kite museum at Tregaron, housed in a former school, sets out its success story. For advice from a very knowledgeable local, contact Teithiau Twm who specialises in guided walks on the area.
In order to 'meet the locals' and sample some of Ceredigion's finest food, you must visit one of the Farmers' Markets which are regularly held in Lampeter, Aberaeron, Cardigan, Llandysul and Aberystwyth. You may even have the chance to practice some Welsh and pick up some useful Welsh phrases! During the summer months, spend a day at one of our local agricultural shows which are held in many market towns between June and September for a true insight into our country way of life.
DAYS OUT IN MID WALES



Ciliau Aeron

Bwthyn Gwyn enjoys a rural setting surrounded by the gently rolling Vale of Aeron countryside, with good walking, riding and cycling routes in the locality. This is an excellent base for touring, with easy access to the Cardigan Bay coast and visitor attractions. Aberaeron is only 4 miles distant, a charming and popular Georgian seaside town providing a good selection of shops, doctor's surgery, leisure centre, harbour, and beach is 4 miles from the property. The National Trust's 18th Century Llanerchaeron Estate is 1½ miles distant by the pretty River Aeron. The main west coast town of Aberystwyth is 20 miles away with excellent shopping, general hospital, main line railway station, etc.
Being so close to the coast, you are ideally located at Tyglyn Vale Meadow Cottages to make the most of the beaches and Ceredigion Bay. For a great family day at the beach, visit New Quay, a great 'bucket and spade' resort, where there's a chance you may spot a friendly dolphin in the harbour. It was at New Quay that Dylan Thomas wrote 'Quite Early One Morning' and the 'Dylan Thomas Trail' will introduce you to many of the pubs where he enjoyed a pint.
From Tyglyn Cottages, your nearest town is Aberaeron, just four miles away; a Georgian planned town with pretty pastel-coloured houses and a beautiful stone-walled harbour. Relax and enjoy the town's famous honey ice cream while contemplating its ancient seafaring history.
On your doorstep too is Llanerchaeron. It is an eighteenth century survivor of a compact and self-contained Welsh gentry estate, designed and built by John Nash in the 1790's and it 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 the restoration fund. There are plenty of picnic areas in the grounds.

From Llanerchaeron there is a flat, gentle cycleway along the Aeron Valley which takes you into Aberaeron town.
Ciliau Aeron lies within the beautiful Aeron Valley in Ceredigion. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the valley is sheltered from the east by the Plynlimon mountain range.

The local area has much to offer with an abundance of leisure pursuits and sporting activities, including walking, fishing, golf, horse riding, cycling and many water sports along the coast.

The Ceredigion coastline is designated Heritage Coast and is considered particularly scenic, in particular Mwnt, Lochtyn, Cwmtydu and Penbryn; all cared for by the National Trust.

Tresaith also scores highly and is well worth a visit; witness the River Saith cascading over the cliff tops and onto the beach. When visiting Tresaith be sure to pop into the Ship Inn. Here you can sample some fine local food whilst looking out over the ocean; several tables have a lovely sea view.
If your preference is for more rugged scenery, then Llangranog is a must, and it is within an easy drive.
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.

For arts and culture, Ceredigion is home to the two oldest universities in Wales, it also houses the National Library of Wales.

Cardigan's local 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.

You may also get a glimpse of local marine wildlife in the bay at New Quay, dolphins and porpoises are regular visitors and can be seen playing in the waves offshore. Special 'dolphin survey' boat trips operate 2, 4 and 8 hour trips from the harbour, and some have 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.

The Aberaeron / Ciliau Aeron area
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 breath-taking coastline.

The 'secret garden' The Ty Glyn Davis Trust is a Registered Charity No. 1068156 Tel: 0845 094 4364

The highlight of your holiday at Ty Glyn has to be the secluded magical walled garden, just a short walk from the cottage. Set within a beautiful woodland area alongside the River Aeron it has been developed specifically for people with special needs. Picnic and play areas make it a good place for children.
Its south facing productive terraced kitchen garden overlooks herbaceous borders, orchard and ponds with child orientated features and surprises amidst unusual shrubs and perennials. Newly planted fruit trees selected from a former gardener's notebook.
The ponds and waterways are a great fascination for children and are full of surprises. There are other child-orientated features, cleverly placed so as not to be over obtrusive
