Description from owner

Description

We're small. We don't have staff, hot tubs or saunas, gyms or pools. We're in a part of Wales often overlooked in favour of its more well-known and glamorous neighbours Pembrokeshire to the south and Snowdonia to the north. We're all about slow, simple, sustainable living. We're an escape from the constant pinging of arriving emails and social media updates demanding your attention. We're a place to be part of rural Wales not simply looking in on it from outside. We want our guests to discover and love wild Ceredigion in the same way we do, not as a visitor but as a local, so they will tell others and come back time and again.

The outbuildings and acres of Banceithin were unloved for many years. Out of the mess we've created a home, two environmentally friendly holiday cottages, a wildlife haven and thriving smallholding, all nestled in a secluded valley just a 20 minute drive from the pretty Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron in Ceredigion.

The outbuildings and acres of Banceithin were unloved for many years. Out of the mess we've created a home, two environmentally friendly holiday cottages, a wildlife haven and thriving smallholding, all nestled in a secluded valley just a 20 minute drive from the pretty Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron in Ceredigion.

Cwt Mochyn cottage is a stylish reinvention of an old cow barn and pig sty built in the early 1800's. Sacrificing nothing in terms of style and comfort, this spacious detached six person, three bedroom cottage is also environmentally friendly, the winner of a Green Tourism Gold Award. A contemporary fitted kitchen has all the mod-cons, but reclaimed and hand-made furniture not found in any catalogue or department store give it a character all its own. A wood burning stove, vintage Welsh wool blankets and hot water bottles keep all the family extra toasty on winter nights. You don't even need to go out for provisions as organic vegetables, fruit, milk and bread, and a selection of Welsh cheeses, can be ordered and will be in your cottage ready and waiting for your arrival.

We can accept up to two adults dogs (no puppies). Water bowls, sofa blankets and rub down towel are provided, and we can recommend local places for dog walks and dog friendly pubs. The cottage has an enclosed garden. We ask that you clean up after your dogs, do not leave them unattended in the cottage and, as we have animals on the smallholding, that your dogs are kept on the lead when away from the cottage on site.

The cottage has its own private garden and patio where you breakfast on a sunny morning under the watchful gaze of a passing free range chicken, a lawn where you can challenge the family to a game of croquet, or maybe just sit out in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine watching the red kites soar above while you barbecue local mackerel for tea or maybe big fat sausages made by us from our own free range pork. But our home is your home, so you and the kids have the run of our smallholding, meet the sheep and help feed the pigs their tea, follow our nature treasure trail, go pond dipping for bugs, be the “King of the Castle” in our stream-side treehouse, cook your dinner cowboy style on the campfire as the sun goes down.

There's plenty to do outside our gate though: spend the days running free in the dunes at Ynys-las or flying a kite on the wide sweeping beach; splash in the waves at Tresaith or get out on the Cardigan Bay sea to ride the waves and explore the caves while dolphin spotting in kayaks or on a boat; head inland to get crafty at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, follow your nose (and stomachs) on the Ceredigion Taste Trail or go full steam ahead on the Rheidol Valley Railway. In the evening treat the family to a fish 'n' chips supper in Aberaeron then head back home to your cottage for a rowdy family board game or table tennis competition, before rounding off the day after the kids have gone to bed by lighting the wood burning stove and settling down with a glass of wine and a movie.
